"I Want This...I Want That"...LHS Student Takes "Ownership" Of Her Thoughts

“Ownership” is a chameleon word--a word that is singular and embodies a multitude of perceptions. From a tender age, humans are notorious for having a desire of wanting and a desire of owning. The toys, the clothes, the trinkets--we want it all. As the life cycle proceeds, we become acquainted with the fact that “to own” does not only mean to have something, but to know something. We may “own” the experience of reading a life-changing book, we may “own” the art of playing the violin, we may even “own” the memory of a beautiful summer sunset. As we assume ownership over the intangible items in life, we forge identity in ourselves--grounding us deep within our roots--to create an authentic sense of self. The contrasting effect is “owning” the tangible items in life that will eventually bestow a plague of unhappiness as a result of an ephemeral validation. Taking ownership within experience, skill, and memory lays foundation for the true ability to build character. Seeking validation, fulfillment, contentment via ownership only leaves one hindered--leaves one unknowing of the true chronicle that is self identity.

Grant 3rd Graders Love Lakewood Project - Doughnut Pantry

On Wednesday, March 21st our projects were due. These projects were all about Lakewood. First you had to pick a location. It could be any location as long as it was located in Lakewood. Second you had to write and research your location. If you could, you had to do an interview. It could be the owner, a worker, or just a senior citizen. As long as they knew about your location. The papers had to be at least one whole page long. The max was two whole pages. Finally you had to make a model of your building. The outside like the outside, and the inside similar to the inside. You could use any material you wanted but the size had to be in the range of a shoebox. The project was started on the first of March so you had three weeks to do it. Some of these projects included GV Art + Design by Rowan L., The Root Cafe by Miles E., KB Confections by Cooper R., Lion & Blue by Cole H., Winking Lizard Tavern by Ellie H., and many others.

My class did a project on the history of Lakewood. Each student was required to choose one place in Lakewood, write a two-page history paper, and make a model of the place. Many of the places picked were well-known. There was a total of 24 projects. We did this project so that we could each learn a little bit about the different places in Lakewood. These are a few of the projects done in my class: The Doughnut Pantry by Matthew C., Lion & Blue by Cole H., The Sweet Spot by Rhea T., and Cyrano’s Place by Alessio M.

Grant 3rd Graders Love Lakewood Project - The Lakewood Public Library

On March 24 at Grant Elementary School Mrs. Masgras’ class officially showed their Lakewood independent projects to lots of people including Mayor Summers and some other people from the city. The independent projects started around the beginning of March. So first what you had to do is pick a location that you know. Second whatever location you got you had to make a 1 to 2 page essay about the history, present and maybe the possible hopes for the future. Third you had to make a model of the location that you picked and make it look a lot like the real place that you picked.

The location that I picked was the Lakewood Public Library. I picked the Lakewood Public Library because it's very popular and I love the library because it has books and movies that everyone loves. And also because it's kid friendly. Some examples of some other ones that people picked and maybe you heard of are Sweet Designs, Winking Lizard, GameStop, Souper Market and my mom's favorite, GV Art Design and many more. There were many different locations.

Grant 3rd Graders Love Lakewood Project - Kauffman Park

My name is Cecilia and I’m in Mrs. Masgras’ third grade class at Grant school. Our independent project for the third quarter was the history of Lakewood. At first, I freaked out because we needed to type a paper, build a model, and present it within two weeks. To add to the stress, I had a million other things to do and go along with my daily life. To top it off, VIPs (the mayor, people from the council, etc.), parents, Ms. Lynch’s class, and the second floor of the school were coming! For this project, first we each chose a place. Some of these places included Kauffman Park, Lakewood Park, Melt, Lion and Blue, KB Confections, the Lakewood and Madison libraries, The Sweet Spot, the Beck Center, and many other cherished places. After that, we gathered research to type a paper. Then we built a model. Next we turned it in on March 22. Finally we presented it on March 24. Out off all off these, I thought the model would be the easiest. Turns out I was wrong. I loved the process except the stress. Looking back though, I realize it was worth it to see the project unfold and to share it with the others. This project was amazing!

District's IT Specialist Forkins In Staff Spotlilght

Lakewood City Schools IT network specialist Ron Forkins, the District's April Staff Spotlight honoree, says working for the Lakewood Schools is the best job he ever had.

“I get to save the day and be superman,” he says. “When I show up and fix things, I make people happy.”

Forkins joined Lakewood Schools 10 years ago as a computer technician. Before that, he worked in the private sector in IT. He worked at several point-of-sale companies, which came in handy as he tackled a major project for the Nutrition Services Department last spring and into the new school year installing point-of-sale systems in our school building cafeterias.

“Ron was a tremendous help and support with the implementation of the Point of Sale System,” said Nutrition Services director Nancy Early who nominated Forklin. Early had the backing of all her staff as well in nominating Ron. She and her staff were particularly impressed with Forkins helping the students input their personal IDs into the system’s pin pad. Forkins continues work with staff with any ongoing questions about the system. By all accounts, the transition to the new system went off without a hitch.

District Staff Spotlight: Garfield's Moran Always Team Player

A love of teaching and a love of sports come together in the form of Garfield Middle School’s Colleen Moran and the result is a passionate, team-focused teacher who is a Lakewood City Schools' March Staff Spotlight honoree.

After nearly 35 years of teaching middle schoolers in the District, Moran, a lifelong Lakewood resident, remains as passionate about teaching as she did when she was a new grad fresh out of Cleveland State heading to work for her hometown district.

Moran's commitment to Lakewood and the District is evident whether it’s in the time she gives mentoring young teachers such as her nominator Kyle White and daughter Kelly at Grant Elementary or in her role as a volunteer coach for Garfield’s 7th and 8th grade girls’ basketball teams.
