Ms. Sawyer and Mrs. Reynolds
October is Bullying Prevention Month
If you need to report an incident of bullying, please talk to a counselor.
Tip for Parents: If you have a smart phone, get the KnowBullying app from store.samhsa.gov/apps/bullying/. It has simple conversation starters to use with your child.
Tip for Teachers: Take Immediate Action. Failure to act provides tacit approval of the behavior and can cause it to spread or worsen.
Tip for Students: Bullying is no joke, so don't treat it as such. Joking about it can cause someone with a real issue to be less likely to get help or report the issue. Remember the boy who cried wolf...

Meet the New Counselor
Mrs. Reynolds is a former high school English teacher and recently completed her master's degree in school counseling at John Carroll University. She absolutely loves her job and is passionate about college and career counseling. In her personal life, Mrs. Reynolds lives with her husband and cat, loves to read, make crafts, travel all over the world, and obsess over anything Harry Potter related. She went to Belize and San Diego, CA last summer and is planning a trip to Germany for next summer, so feel free to stop in and see pictures of her travels (during your study hall, of course)!
The PSAT/ NMSQT propels students toward college and career readiness. By taking the test, you're automatically screened for the National Merit Scholarship Program (though usually only juniors meet entry requirements). Taking the PSAT/ NMSQT and saying "yes" to Student Search Service makes it easy for colleges and scholarship programs to find you.
The cost is $15. If you are interested in taking the PSAT, please see Ms. Sawyer or Mrs. Reynolds for more information on how to sign up. Payment in either a check or money order can be made out to Parma Community. Please note that there is limited seating available, so sign up today!
Watch out for these upcoming dates for college and career representatives! See Ms. Sawyer or Mrs. Reynolds for more details. If you are interested in attending one of the college representative sessions, sign up in either Ms. Macejko's room or Ms. Planic's room!
