Denise Wheeler Soars as Lydia Hawk Elementary School Principal

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0 By Amy Davidson, River Ridge High School internDenise Wheeler is the new Principal at Lydia Hawk Elementary School within North Thurston Public Schools.“Mrs. Wheeler is different. But she’s a good different,” says a sixth grade student at Lydia Hawk. “She visits our class a lot, and makes sure we understand what we’re learning.”She’s referring to Denise Wheeler- the new principal at Lydia Hawk Elementary School.Originally from Minnesota, Mrs. Wheeler moved to Montana between her junior and senior year of high school, where her parents owned a small business. She has worked in Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, and now Washington.She has two undergraduate degrees from the University of Montana-one in elementary education and one in forestry. She also has a master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Montana.Wheeler has been in education for over 30 years, and was brought to Washington in order to be closer to her daughter.“My daughter has an undergraduate degree in chemistry and a master’s degree in chemical engineering. She works as an engineer for the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS & IMF) in Bremerton and is responsible for operating and maintaining a pure water production facility. She is also involved in recruiting new engineers for PSNS & IMF and participates in STEM activities at various locations,” explains Wheeler.Mrs. Wheeler says that she was looking for elementary principal positions on the Association of Washington School Principals Website. There were 2 positions open in Public Schools. She researched the district, liked what she saw and thought it would be a good place to apply.Her first impressions of Lydia Hawk were second to none. “I love, love, love Lydia Hawk,” she said. “I have an incredibly wonderful staff that really cares about students and will do just about anything for them! They also like and respect each other and are warm and welcoming to others. We are the most diverse elementary school in the district and have the highest poverty level which makes it an interesting place to work.”Throughout the past 15 years, there have been three different principals at Lydia Hawk – Paula Quinn, Charles Harrington, and now Mrs. Wheeler.Through those 15 years, students have always gone by the ABCD rules, and one of the first changes to Lydia Hawk this year was getting rid of the ABCD rules:A: Act safelyB: Be respectfulC: CooperateD: Develop responsibility and do your bestThe students are now being taught the ways of the SOAR rules.S: SafetyO: OwnershipA: Aim highR: Respect“I like the SOAR rules,” says a fourth grader. “They’re easier to remember.” Mrs. Wheeler also agrees that the SOAR rules are simpler, and the word itself is more fitting for their school, considering their mascot is a Hawk. The team behind the change thought ABCD sounded too institutional, plus they liked the connection to their mascot. They also thought that SOAR was more unique.Lydia Hawk is known as a Title I school, which means they aim to bridge the gap between low-income students, and other students. Types of students that might be served by Title I schools include migrant students, students with limited English proficiency, who have disabilities, are neglected, delinquent, at-risk or in need.I asked her what she thought of the students at Lydia Hawk and she said, “They are so great! As I said earlier we are a very diverse school. Of our 455 students, 35% of our student population is white, 35% are Latino and 30% are Asian, American Indian, Pacific Islander, Black, or 2 or more races. We have a poverty rate of 75%.”Mrs. Wheeler is very excited to help the students at Lydia Hawk. “The students are well-behaved and have been very welcoming. I get lots of hugs every day, which is one of the perks of being at the elementary level.”Her hobbies include golfing, reading, canoeing, gardening, attending the theater, upholstering, arranging flowers and arts and crafts. She also has a semi-hairless cat who loves to huddle under blankets!Most importantly, she loves kids and is a huge advocate of public education. She says her main goal for this year is to learn about the community and school district and get her bearings. She also hopes to have learned all of the students’ names by the end of the school year.last_img read more

Was tempted to stand in between Virat Kohli and Steve Smith at toss, jokes Sanjay Manjrekar

first_imgIt seems Virat Kohli and Steve Smith are friends again. The two were all smiles at the toss ahead of the Indian Premier League clash between Rising Pune Supergiant and Royal Challengers Bangalore.The duo faced off for the second time since a spark-filled India vs Australia Test series in February and March where the two were at loggerheads following Smith’s DRS antics in the second Test at Bengaluru.In their previous encounter, Smith’s side conquered the M Chinnaswamy stadium.Former India cricketer and popular commentator Sanjay Manjrekar joked as he saw the two best batsmen in the world in good space at the toss time.”Was tempted to stand in between Virat & Steve Smith at the toss,” Manjrekar tweeted.Was tempted to stand in between Virat & Steve Smith at the toss.???- Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) 29 April 2017RCB, who ended runners-up last season, are battling to find rhythm this year while RPS have done reasonably well this time around.The Kohli-Smith quarrel started in Bengaluru over a DRS incident when the Australian captain was caught seeking help from his team’s dressing room over a review after he was trapped leg before by Umesh Yadav.While Smith called it a “brain fade”, Kohli warned the visitors of “crossing the line”. International Cricket Council put an end to the saga by not pressing charges against Smith or Kohli.The series was full of ups and downs and emotions took the centrestage ahead of cricket in the last two Tests. Australia came into the series as underdogs but Smith’s men fought fire-with-fire to win the first Test in Pune. However, Kohli’s men bounced back smartly to clinch a 75-run win in the second Test in Bengaluru before the third Test ended in draw. India, however, won the final Test to clinch their seventh successive series.advertisementKohli said he would never say Australian cricketers are his friends after India wrapped up a comprehensive victory in Dharamsala to reclaim the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-1.last_img read more

Here’s What We Think The Big 12 Divisions Would Look Like

first_imgThe Big 12 Conference's logo.Earlier today, the Big 12 announced that it had unanimously approved the re-institution of a conference championship game in 2017.The league also announced that it would likely split into a pair of five-team divisions, which drew a slew of outside criticism. What’s the point of divisions if doing round-robin? The Big 12 is clueless— Jason Brown (@JasonBrown96) June 3, 2016We decided to try and figure out how those divisions might look when they are formed. Here’s what we came up with:NorthOklahoma Oklahoma State Kansas Kansas State West VirginiaSouthTexas Texas Tech Baylor TCU Iowa StateLet’s take a look at how we arrived at these splits. First, Oklahoma and Texas will definitely be split up. Texas will likely want to be in a division with the other Texas schools, and it makes geographical sense. Meanwhile, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State fighting it out for North supremacy and a spot in the title game makes things interesting. The Kansas schools then get grouped in with the two Oklahoma programs. Iowa State makes zero sense in the South, but neither does Missouri in the SEC East. Additionally, we had to beef up the North a little bit, so we gave them West Virginia, a better program than the Cyclones. Do these divisions make sense, or should we have switched some things around? How would you have done them?last_img read more

US State Department addresses Turkish issues

first_imgWASHINGTON (AA) – State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf Wednesday tackled several pressing issues on Turkey.The Deputy Spokesperson denied media reports that the US has frozen its assistance to the Syrian opposition.“Not at all. Not to my knowledge. No, our assistance continues. Ambassador Ford is on the ground meeting with them right now. That report would seem to be pretty false to me,” said Harf during the daily press briefing. Turkish daily, Hurriyet, reported that the US had halted its assistance to the opposition pending the opposition meeting certain criteria.US still concerned over CPMIEC missile dealHarf concurred with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Turkey’s missile defense future was ultimately a sovereign question. She added, however, that the US is concerned by the choice of the Chinese firm, China Precision Machinery Import Export Corp. (CPMIEC), and a potential lack of interoperability with NATO missile defense systems.“We have also said, two points, that this company is currently sanctioned by the United States, and that as part of NATO and a NATO ally, it is important to have systems that are interoperable”, remarked Harf.CPMIEC is currently sanctioned by the US for alleged violations of the Iran, North Korea and Syria Nonproliferation Act.Source of Ignatius media leak still unknownThe source of a media report that alleged Turkey exposed 10 Iranians working with Mossad to Tehran is still unknown, according to Harf.“I have no information at all about who may have been sources of this kind of stuff that’s out there in the press,” said Harf.Asked whether the incident led to Congress delaying weapons transfers to Ankara, Harf said that such questions should be directed to Congress.last_img read more

Ohio State football names captaincy quintet

Ohio State football added another chapter to its own history Sunday evening with the announcement that seniors Garrett Goebel, John Simon, Etienne Sabino, Jordan Hall and Zach Boren will captain the 2012 Buckeyes. Goebel, Simon, Sabino, Hall and Boren were chosen by their peers to lead first-year OSU coach Urban Meyer’s squad, which learned Saturday that it is ranked No. 18 in the Associated Press’ first Top 25 poll of the season. “Announcing who are team captains is one of the great honors I get to do as head coach,” Meyer said in an OSU athletics Sunday release. “We had a number of guys get votes. This is a really good group of seniors who I am very proud to have leading this team.” Simon, co-captain of former head coach and current defensive coordinator Luke Fickell’s 2011 Buckeyes, becomes just the seventh two-time captain in OSU history. Being named captain meant a lot, Simon said the athletic department release. “I appreciate the votes of the players. This is one of the biggest honors a player can receive and I’ll be proud to lead this team along with four other great guys,” Simon said. “We’ll have a really good season if we all lead well.” Simon (defensive lineman) Boren (fullback) and Sabino (linebacker) all joined Meyer in Chicago for Big Ten Media Days – the three players have been visible at media events.  Hall, a senior running back, joins the captain quintet despite surgery for a torn ligament in his foot after stepping on glass while walking his pit bull dog, “Cali.” Hall could miss up to three games at the outset of OSU’s non-conference schedule. Hall said his selection for the captaincy is a dream come true. “I was hoping to be named a captain but I was also a little surprised when it happened,” Hall said. “I can’t thank my teammates enough for selecting me for this honor.” Goebel, a redshirt senior defensive lineman with five career starts to his name, said that he too is honored by his selection as captain. “I’m excited. It is an honor that your teammates think that highly of you to name you a captain,” Goebel said. “I’m going to put everything I have into this responsibility.” OSU’s five new captains will lead the team into competition for the Buckeyes’ first game this year Sept. 1 at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is set for noon. read more
