Wood County Youth Olympics Kick Off Event
TI Changes It's Name!
One Step Ahead Members Become JTI Leaders
On January 5th, Kara Ameling and Sarah Bettinger ran their second JTI group. This week they decided to use the Human Knot experience to gain team building skills, problem solving skills, and communication skills among a group of people.
On January 14th, Alexandra Brockschmidt and Matty Rollo came up with an activity that involved Hershey Kisses. The relay they created was to open a Hershey Kiss with winter gloves on. The first time the teams were not wearing gloves so they could tell a difference. For some groups they thought it was easier and other groups had a difficult time opening the Hershey. The purpose of this activity was to have the JTI members think about what it is like to have a new variable added to a similar situation.
Save The Date: JTI Retreat is coming!
If you or your child are interested in attending please let Miss Jacobs (firstname.lastname@example.org) know and she can get you more details as the event comes closer.

"The purpose of the Wood County Youth Olympics is to demonstrate that competition does not have to result in violence. Through this program, Wood County youth are given the opportunity to compete in a conflict free environment. In addition, the Youth Olympics strives to demonstrate the importance of individual accountability and personal excellence.
The Wood County Youth Olympics is an annual event that was created in 1999. It is held every March on the campus of Bowling Green State University. The event is open to 500 4th and 5th grade students who attend school or reside in Wood County. Participants from different school districts are paired together in teams to facilitate cooperation and team work. The Youth Olympics are coordinated with the assistance of community volunteers, including elected officials, law enforcement officers, and school personnel."
