Key Club raises funds to ELIMINATE neonatal tetanus worldwide

Bay High Key Club members conducted a wide variety of activities to raise funds for The Eliminate Project, an International Kiwanis effort to eliminate neonatal tetanus across the globe.

Classroom donation collections, a meal at Crocker Park Chipotle, and a Cow Plop were some of the fundraising activities. The project chairs, Katherine Butler, Claire Mercer and Jessica Mosier, created this public service video.

This year, BHS Key Club will add to the more than $7,000 its members have raised toward this effort in the past three years.

A public service video for the Eliminate Project was created by Bay High seniors (left-to-right) Claire Mercer, Katherine Butler and Jessica Mosier.

PTA units recognized for excellence

Kudos to our Bay High, Westerly and Normandy PTA units who have completed the detailed process of having their school designated as National PTA Schools of Excellence for their achievement in building effective family-school partnerships.

The program provided guidance in documenting how our schools engage families in school decision-making and help our schools build inclusive policies to benefit students.

Bay Middle School PTSA is also in the process of National PTA School of Excellence designation.

"Hidden in Plain Sight" to be presented at Bay High evening of October 1

"Looks can be deceiving." That's the message behind a unique traveling exhibit created by the Bath and Copley Township Police Departments. The display is called "Hidden in Plain Sight." The departments constructed what appears to be at first glance the bedroom of the average teenager. But amidst the clutter of clothing scattered on the floor, school supplies on a desk, and personal care products on a vanity are more than 150 items that can actually be signals that a young person could be involved in risky, dangerous and even illegal activity.

"Hidden in Plain Sight" will be on display at Bay High School on Wednesday, October 1.  Doors open for browsing at 6:30 p.m., with a presentation beginning at 7 p.m. The exhibit is open to adults only. There is no charge for admittance.

The audience is encouraged to explore and interact with items in the display which may be indicative that a teenager is involved in substance abuse, underage drinking, eating disorders, sexual activity and more.  Participants will be enlightened, educated and astonished.

The exhibit and presentation continue the collaboration of the Bay Village Schools and the Bay Village Police Department in educating the community's parents and adults in order to prevent risky behaviors by young people. Last year, the collaboration presented retired DEA agent Bob Stutman, who addressed the urgent need to prevent drug abuse by children who begin down the wrong path by abusing prescription drugs.
