Superintendent's Message: Passing the Test
Politicians and educational professionals are continually working on ways to gauge student knowledge and school performance through assessments and grades. Although these measures are helpful in understanding performance ratings across the state, we know that true success lies within the child. Our job as educators is to provide the right lessons and tools to help each child discover their potential and aide in their growth.

Groveport Madison staff understands the importance of accountability. The district recognizes the need to improve student performance. The goal of every teacher, administrator and parent across the district is to find better ways to help our students extend learning beyond the classroom by providing more opportunities for students to achieve success.

 
Combating Cyber Bullying
October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness month. The word "bullying" has often been associated with either verbal or physical abuse. However, harassment in cyber space is swiftly becoming a growing problem especially between adolescents. 
Teacher Uses Creativity to Fund Reading Project
Read 180 teacher, Shannon Patel likes to start the new school year by having students delve into an interesting read. This year, she chose The Fault in Our Stars by John Green for her students to read. This popular book was recently adapted into a movie.

The only challenge Patel faced was finding the funds to pay for 20 copies of the book. That's when Patel's graduate school professor told her about a website called gofundme.com. The website is designed to facilitate raising money for personal causes such as paying for medical bills, tuition, business ideas, and special events. Patel asked site visitors to either send her a paperback copy of the book or donate money to be used to buy more copies.
