Foreign Language Academic Bowl

Five students from the Spanish 3-4 classes competed in the Foreign Language Academic Bowl Competition at USI on Thursday, March 16th with 14 other high schools and tied for 5th place. The entire competition and the twenty questions were asked in the target language and were focused on areas of advanced grammar as well as the culture of the Andean region countries of Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. In anticipation of this event, these five students dedicated their time to prepare in and out of the classroom by researching the Andean countries and reviewing their grammar concepts.

Big image - Information from the Crisis Connection

We at the Crisis Connection are all about serving our community & have heard loud

and clear from adults that they are appreciative of any assistance/support in enriching

family life. We have began using & sharing a free online resource that is an exciting

tool to help strengthen relationships through shared activities –

Search Institute’s ParentFurther!

Through ParentFurther, mentoring adults can:

• Learn about It—See what research says about relationships, strengths, and challenges in families with children and youth.

• Check It—Families can use quizzes to assess how their family is doing in building relationships and tackling challenges.

• Talk about it—Parents can start meaningful conversations with their kids, building on

what they find in the quiz.

• Try it—Parents can engage in meaningful activities with their children to explore issues and bring them closer together.

• Track It—Families can use an online profile to keep track of the quizzes and the activities they have done so far.

• Take It Further—Families can create plans for how they want to keep moving forward toward goals, despite any setbacks.



The Developmental Assets® are 40 research-based, positive experiences and qualities that influence young people’s development, helping them become caring, responsible, and productive adult.

FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes)

Rusty Clayton visited Southridge this month to speak to the members of our Fellowship of Christian Athletes club. Rusty is a former college football player and now a leader of YoungLife and WyldLife in Dubois County. He talked about his professional, personal, and spiritual journey through life. He loved it here on the Ridge. He is looking forward to working with Southridge in the coming years, as YoungLife and WyldLife have plans to expand their ministry reach into Huntingburg for this year and beyond. YoungLife and WyldLife are Christian outreach programs aimed at helping students to come to know Jesus Christ.
