Freshman in West Virginia and Virginia Walk To Produce $107,000 Impact for Vulnerable Children

The fact is that this generation -- yours, my generation ... we're the first generation that can look at poverty and disease, look across the ocean to Africa and say with a straight face, we can be the first to end this sort of stupid extreme poverty, where in the world of plenty, a child can die for lack of food in it's belly.    -Bono Last week, Sarah, a freshman at Salem High School, asked for another World Vision Christmas…See More

One Life to Make a Difference

Posted on August 26, 2010 at 10:37pm 7 Comments

Last year Huntington High School (West Virginia) and Salem High School (Virginia) partnered in the Walk for Africa - One Life to Make a Difference. This walk was the service project for freshmen at both schools. We shared with each other through video conferencing and through a common One Life to Make a Difference ning. The freshmen raised over $12,000. By partnering with World Vision, we were able to donate the money to funds that were matched many times over by the U.S. government and…

Impact of the Walk for Africa - One Life to Make a Difference May Reach Close to $100,000

Posted on November 26, 2009 at 6:30pm 2 Comments

The joint service project by freshmen at Salem and Huntington High Schools still have some significant donations coming in. Sponsorships now are approaching $10,000. A few teachers sponsored many students and have not made the final tally to write their checks. Also a donor agreed to match teacher and staff donations at the two schools. We are now expecting to top $12,000 between the two.



By channeling those donations into specific funds that are matched five times by the U.S.… Continue

The Pyramid of Success - Alertness and Initiative

Posted on September 15, 2009 at 10:21pm 3 Comments

Alertness and Initiative were two of the “lost blocks” for me for many years. Along with Friendship, Loyalty, and Cooperation, they failed to capture my attention like the other ten blocks. As you will see, that was "my bad” rather than any fault with the blocks. When I would teach these two blocks, I gave John Wooden’s definition and his thoughts about them to the students, but I really failed to do an adequate job of selling the importance of these blocks to my students.



In this… Continue

Thanks for joining this brand new network. This is definitely a "work in progress". Your input and ideas will play a big role in making this a useful and interactive site. Please let me know if you have ideas.

Check out the new "Your School" tab. This gives people a chance to leave information about and a link to their school's Freshman Transition Program. I think this could help schools connect with one another.

Be sure to "friend" the other members of the community. That will make sure that the community truly is a community.

You might find the new "Search" tab to be helpful. It's a custom Google search engine dedicated to searching sites related to freshman transition. When you go to it you choose to be a volunteer contributor and then add sites to the search engine. As more sites are added, the engine becomes more and more powerful. Know any websites that are beneficial for teachers trying to meet the needs of freshmen?

Thanks again for joining!
