Do you have jeans that don’t fit or that aren’t your favorite pair and never get worn? We want them! Lincolnview Jr. High Student Council is collecting gently used jeans for “Teens for Jeans.” Teens for Jeans is a project that collects jeans for homeless people across North America. The reason they collect jeans is because they are one of the most requested items at homeless shelters. Jeans are durable and can be worn more than once without needing to be washed. They also make the homeless feel like they don’t stand out as much and give them a sense of normalcy. Our goal is to collect 200 pairs of jeans. They can be any size. Please turn them in by Friday, February 19. The jeans can be dropped off at the high school office or to teachers Sandy Dowdy or Beth Schnipke in their classrooms. The student council would like to thank Stephanie Longwell for introducing them to this project and for allowing them to partner with her.

Students and teacher were chosen because they show that they care about our school.  8th - Joe Sadowski, 9th Rachel Hertel, 10th Frankie Carey, 11th Ryanne DuCheney, 7th Madison Coil, 12th Anna Gorman, and teacher Michelle Knodell. (Photo submitted.)

Brenda Leeth, Lincolnview Jr/Sr High guidance counselor, recently spent a class period with seventh grade students.  The students did an exercise to see what it feels like to say something good “behind people’s backs”.  At the end of the period, the students were challenged to find their “theme song(s)”.   The students will include these in their time capsule, which will be opened when they are seniors.  (Photo submitted.)

Leadership.  That’s what the Lincolnview Junior High Student Council has been showing over the past few months of school.  Elected in October after all candidates were given the opportunity to address the junior high student body, the members went to work right away.

They held a Halloween dance In October and encouraged participation in Mix It Up Day.  After brainstorming ideas for the year in November, they made one idea become reality as they raised close to $600 for their Christmas project.  The student council challenged the staff to see who could raise the most money for the project.

The students outdid the staff and, in return, the 12 members had the opportunity to line up and

Five of the student council members, assisted by two teachers, bought items for eight Lincolnview students in hopes of making a brighter holiday for their families.  The gifts were picked up and the recipients expressed great appreciation. The group will be back to planning for additional events for the rest of the year.

Prior to Friday’s game the Middle Point Lions will hold a Scholarship Benefit with sandwiches being served from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.

 Using Technology to Do a Formative Assessment

Have you ever taken a test and worried what your grade would be because you didn’t know all of the answers? The process of formative assessment eliminates the worry of not knowing all the answers for a test and replaces it with confidence in knowing exactly what one knows and what one does not know. Students are assessed frequently during lessons, and this process helps the teacher zone in on who needs help with what and who is ready to move on to the next topic, so by the time of testing the students already know what they need to study and can be prepared.
