Reiley Beta Club Has Heart for Service

The Reiley Beta Club proved they possess “hearts of service”  by completing service projects throughout the year.  Their hard work allowed them to raise money to donate $500.00  to both  Autism Speaks and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation donation.  Autism Speaks was chosen because Katie Ruschman, parent of a Reiley student with autism  has raised money and donated numerous items to Reiley’s autism unit.  These items (5 iPads with covers, iPad keyboards, an inkjet printer, ink, Velcro, pencil weights, and thick pencils) help remove barriers for students with autism.  The students felt it was a priority to give back to this generous group by donating to their team for the recent Cincinnati Walk Now for Autism Speaks, which promotes awareness and research for autism.  The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) was selected as the other group to receive a $500 donation because one of the Beta Club members has diabetes.  She will participate in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes to help raise money for research and spread awareness for the disease.  The Beta Club felt it was imperative to show support for one of their own.  Way to go, Reiley Beta Club!

GLE Recognized for Service Learning Work

The National Center for Learning and Citizenship (NCLC) at the Education Commission of the States (ECS) just released a series of case studies that examines the link between service-learning and the Common Core State Standards (download the PDF).

NCLC staff visited four diverse sites—from urban Chicago to rural Kentucky—in an effort to determine whether and how high-quality service-learning is utilized as a teaching strategy for implementation of the Common Core. The report includes recommendations for the types of supports teachers and administrators need to effectively implement the Common Core using service-learning, which is strategy that is proven to foster student development of the deeper learning emphasized by the Common Core. Congratulations to Grant's Lick Elementary for being cited as one of the four sites recognized for high quality service learning!  CARDINAL PRIDE!
