Local High School Makes Antibullying Video

I stumbled upon this the other day, you may or may not know I work with middle schools coaching cross country and track. I used to work at Allendale Middle School and saw this pop up in my news feed on facebook. It's a video made by the students of Allendale High School to the song by Katy Perry, "Roar" promoting anti-bullying. I thought it was a pretty cool find and considering it was done by just the students, I thought I would give it a share!

How Much Is Too Much Homework?

Homework used to be something that kids just did (though not always without protest). Though, when I was a kid (cue "back in my day" old lady voice), I don't remember having much of it, at least until I was out of elementary school. In fact, I don't really remember having much homework at all until I reached the fourth grade. My parents were lucky in that I was a good student and rarely, if ever needed help with my homework (except in German, and having a mom who's from there helps).

These days, though, a lot of parents are far more involved in their kid's schooling than their parents were. Most kids are read to before they're even out of the womb. There are television shows that teach kids that counting is fun. And, more because they have to than that they want to, they sit down and help their kids with their homework.

No More Snow Days?

When school districts plan their school year, they take into account that there could be some snow days. It's Michigan, it snows, these things happen. But, snow days could eventually become a thing of the past. This is mostly because an unusually snowy winter could lead to too many snow days and kids having to make up days at the end of the year and the school district losing money.

An idea that's being piloted in a city in Ohio could work for cities like Grand Rapids and outlying areas like Lowell and Rockford as well. It would replace snow days with "e-days". In the event of an e-day students would be required to complete a certain amount of work online on days that the physical school building is closed due to the weather.
