For Parents

My contact info:

email: mneville@cuyhts.org (this is the BEST way to get in touch with me)

phone: (216) 429-5707  x5789

Thank you for supporting your child by taking an interest in his/her education! I look forward to meeting all of you at school functions or out in the community, and welcome any questions or feedback you may have.

I also encourage you to keep track of assignments and grades through Progress Book, and to talk to your son/daughter/niece/nephew/grandchild about what they are doing in school.


UPDATE FROM 2016 OPEN HOUSE:

Our hard publishing dates for The Chieftain (the school’s newspaper) this year will be October 1, December 1, February 1, and April 1st. We also hope to do two additional “flex” issues at some point in the year.


 

 

Would anyone be interested in participating a parent/teacher book club during the summer?  There are several books about adolescent psychology/development I’ve been wanting to read, and I think it would be mutually beneficial if I had at least a few parents to discuss them with. I usually read such books through a “teacher lens”, and would be very interested to hear parental perspectives on the same material. Please get in touch ASAP if you are interested or have a book suggestion! For the moment, these are ones I have in mind:

Nurture Shock

The Price of Privilege

A Nation of Wimps

Stressed Out Girls: Helping them Thrive in the Age of Pressure by Roni Cohen-Sandler, PhD

Boys Adrift: The Five Factors Driving the Growing Epidemic of Unmotivated Boys and Underachieving Young Men by Leonard Sax

I find the mother in these two news clips is inspiring (copy and paste the URL). Please be aware that this problem exists here and we need to do anything we can to stop it:

  2. Hey Ms. Neville,
    I was wondering if it would be possible if you would send me the link to the websites you gave us in class when we were working on our mini research papers? I’m starting my writing class today and it would be really helpful to know how to cite everything before i start writing papers =). Hope your excited for your upcoming school year. My school email is kdoughe@bgsu.edu, and you can email me whenever!
