Portrait of a Tiger Monthly Primary Winner: Resilient, Liam Stitzel The Second-Grade student that most exemplifies the meaning of being resilient, is Liam Stitzel. Liam suffered a brain bleed on the evening of September 13th caused by a tumor. He then underwent surgery at Nationwide Children's Hospital to remove the tumor. Liam has since shown great resilience in trying to overcome the effects of Posterior Fossa Syndrome. He is working hard with a team of therapists to relearn how to walk, talk, eat, write, etc. Liam loves to show everyone on his medical team just how strong and smart he is. Liam may not be able to say all that he wants right now, but his smile still lights up a room and his giggles are music to the ears of his loved ones that have yet to leave his side. Although Liam has a long road to recovery ahead of him, his resilience, and intense desire to get back to school with his friends, will keep him focused on the goal ahead.

We are excited to announce that our Buddy Bench is complete and ready to be used on our Primary playground! Last years Student Lighthouse Team (current 3rd graders) raised funds to purchase a bench for students to sit on, when they are need a friend to play with at recess. Our students are taught to invite anyone who sits on the bench to play with them. This helps teach our kids about kindness and inclusion with the hope that new friendships are created on the playground. Huge thanks to Aleta Rowe, 2nd grade teacher and Student Lighthouse Team Advisor, Doug Shifley, who donated and made the bench, Issac Keinath, High School Teacher, and Xander Cooper, Galion High School Senior, who lasered the paws and words. We are so excited for this addition to our playground.
