Four seats open on SHS School Council
Sharon High School will hold its Open House on Thursday, Oct. 10, during which the SHS PTSO will run an election for parent and community representatives to serve on this year's School Council.
Sharon High School has a functioning and representative School Council that convenes on a regular basis throughout the school year. Co-led by SHS Principal Dr. Jose Libano, the group includes students, parents, faculty and community members. Its primary objectives are to serve as a vehicle for assisting the principal in the development of the annual improvement plan and review of the handbook. It calls for the inclusive participation of various stakeholders willing and able to provide different perspectives about the school's needs.
Currently, there are four open positions: two parent positions and two community representative positions (residents with no students in the school). Individuals each serve a two-year term.
Anyone interested in running for School Council is required to submit a brief written statement of intent to PTSO President Mamie Spelfogel at firstname.lastname@example.org. The statement should include why you are seeking to serve on the School Council and why your participation would be beneficial to the Council. Each candidate's statement will be posted at the Open House. Anyone attending the Open House will be eligible to vote.
If you would like to learn more about the SHS School Council, visit the Sharon High School website athttp://hs.sharon.k12.ma.us/pages/Sharon_High_School, open the drop-down menu under "Principal's Corner" in the top left corner and click on "School Council & SHS Improvement Plan."
All statements of intent must be submitted to email@example.com by Friday, Sept. 27.
New Book on Creativity
Well known Sharon artist and art teacher, Marilyn Z. Kahn, has written a book on Creativity called, “Enhance Your Creativity and Break Artist’s Block”. She is in the process of getting this book published. During her many years of painting, print making and teaching art to over a thousand adults and children, she discovered there is a link between artist’s block and the quality of a budding artists’s creativity. She kept looking into this connection and sought out methods of working and teaching to keep herself and her students energized and creative. She found there is one basic problem that causes the obstacles. The main problem is the fear of messing up. The project of publication is now on Kickstarter.com where she explains more about the book.
