“If we are not all constantly engaged in learning, we run the risk of replicating the status quo and perpetuating systems that have not served all children.”

Winton Woods High School to Present Noises Off

Winton Woods High School play "Noises Off"Winton Woods High School will present this year’s fall play, Noises Off, on Thursday, November 16, through Saturday, November 18, at 8:00 p.m. in the David Bell Performing Arts Center located at the high school.  

Noises Off is a three-act comedy by Michael Frayn that portrays a show within a show. Student Directors Stephanie Trubl and Delaney Harrison will assist Winton Woods High School Drama Director Michelle Kozlowski with the production. 

“We’ve never done anything like this before,” said Ms. Kozlowski. “We show the process of a production and what happens backstage. Anyone familiar with what goes on in a show knows about backstage transitions. Even if you know nothing about plays or backstage preparations this will be an entertaining and hilarious production.”

Tickets for the show are $7.00 and will be available at the door. To purchase tickets, please call 513-619-2418. Remember, community members holding MVP Cards from the district will be admitted for free. 

 

 

Winton Woods Student Athletes Celebrate Work On and Off the Field

Super PodcastThe Warriors have had a great season with only a one-point lost in an overtime game against the Elder Panthers. As they advance to the next football playoff game, the Warriors see this as an opportunity to bring the community together.

Senior student-athletes Brandon Jones, Maurice Chapman and Head Coach Andre Parker were featured on the district’s award winning monthly podcast Warrior Supercast for November where they talked about how project-based learning (PBL) through the New Tech Network educational reform model has impacted their skills in the classroom and on the football field.

“When you work with people other than immediate friends, it teaches you how to communicate effectively, learn from other perspectives and depend on one another to get the work done,” said Jones. “On the field with my teammates, we’re able to critique one another in a respectful way because we learned it in the classroom first.”

“It’s taught me how to get my work done by developing time management skills which also helps me in my everyday life,” said Chapman.

When asked how the district’s educational set up has impacted the players on the field, Head Football Coach Andre Parker said, “I believe project-based learning is a wonderful experience. It helps them to better communicate, forces them to break down the barriers and work more as a team. They have to learn to depend on people and everyone has to come together to do their job and that’s what football is about.”
