LifePoint Church is sponsoring 'Project Prom 2019' starting February 7. This outreach service provides free dresses, shoes, purses, & other accessories to current high school students. Any student in need of one or more items (one complete set per student) for prom may shop for free. See the flyer for details.

Also, if you have items you would like to donate, please contact Mrs. Lisa Monteith or Mrs. Kristie Copley at the high school. Note: this is not held at the church like last year. The new address is 841 Gallia Street, Portsmouth.

Project Prom 2019

Mrs. Pauley will be sending home the OAGC and SCOESC Gifted Scholarship Applications to our gifted students this week. The OAGC Scholarship deadline is 2/15/19 and the SCOESC Scholarship deadline is 3/15/19.

 The Ohio Association for Gifted Children and the Gifted Services Department of the South Central Ohio Educational Service Center offers scholarships to students currently enrolled in grades 5 through 11 who have been identified as Gifted (through Ohio Dept. of Education approved assessment) to attend Summer Enrichment Programs. The SCOESC does not offer our own Enrichment Programs, but rather help students with the costs of attending their own chosen Enrichment Program.

The costs of Summer Enrichment Programs can vary a great deal. In the summer of 2018, the lowest cost of a program attended by one of our students was $175 and the highest cost was $6,130. The amounts they award will fluctuate from year to year according to the amount of money available from sponsors and the number of students who apply for the scholarships. Generally speaking, the ESC will award up to $500 for elementary students (grades 5 & 6), up to $1,000 for junior high students (grades 7 & 8), and up to $1,500 for high school students (grades 9-11).

In order to be eligible for scholarships, students must apply to both the ESC and to the Ohio Association for Gifted Children (OAGC). The application process requires a good bit of paperwork. In order for parents to better understand this process we will be holding an informational meeting this Friday at 2:40 pm to explain the procedures involved in applying for one of our scholarships.

The West Ohio Model United Nations group traveled to Columbus, Sunday, December 2-4, to take part in Ohio’s largest mock United Nations. West students represented three nations, Antigua-Barbuda, Lesotho, and Senegal. After researching, each group wrote and presented a resolution to their appropriate councils. 
Antigua-Barbuda proposed to their Security Council a plan for reconstruction after hurricane Irma’s destruction. Their innovative plan focused on rebuilding structures with a circular design to deflect hurricane force winds. 
Lesotho’s delegates tackled the issue of the AIDS epidemic this nation is experiencing. Their resolution presented to its International Court a plan to medically monitor and treat infected patients. This group’s resolution included a clause that targeted individuals who commit sex crimes which results in an increase to the spread of the virus. 
Our delegates from Senegal presented to the Economic and Social Council a proposal to reverse the effects of desertification. Their plan included the creation of an irrigation system and a drainage system to reduce salt levels in the soil.  These systems would be incrementally created, and as field crops began to profit, then further systems could be installed. 
West OMUN delegates also experienced and participated in lively debate during the General Assembly sessions. They found that the more involved they were, the richer their experience grew. They attended a formal luncheon and a celebration from various native cultural talents. While there, they also enjoyed debating and supporting various county teams such as Valley, Minford, and Notre Dame. 
Juniors Abbie Pack and Emily Sissel were recognized with Outstanding Delegates Awards. Sophomores Jared Opperman and Dylan Essman we’re invited to join the OMUN Student Advisory Board.  They will be charged with attending future meeting and leadership instruction, including a summer workshop experience. Their fees will be waived with a scholarship award if they decide to join.  
Plans are already set for next year’s trip. Students have selected their nations and are eager to get started once more. The OMUN advisors are Alison and Richard Smalley.
