Sharing culture

Origami-Cubes

Japanese Culture students from Benjamin Logan High School recently visited Green Hills Community and Logan Acres Center to share what they had learned about "Confucianism." In Japan, there is a national holiday to show respect to senior citizens during the month of September. During the presentation, the students appeared in kimonos and read  letters to the elderly. They also presented the origami-made cubes that they made in class and demonstrated how to play Kendama, a Japanese traditional toy.

RD Jones crews have begun work on the Indian Lake/Great Miami River Open Space Project, a 2-mile walking path to be constructed in the southeast corner of Russells Point. The walking track will connect with an existing sidewalk constructed more than a decade ago that bisects the village along the former railroad track line, and extend in a continuous loop along the west side of the Great Miami River in what was an open 52.3 acre field, donated to the village by the Rudolph (Foods) family. The $1 million trail project is expected to be complete next summer. (EXAMINER PHOTO | RICK PITTS)

Indian Lake Elementary School kindergartner Matthew Caudill and third-grader Megan Kimbler recently were presented with bicycles as a reward for being on the perfect attendance list for the grading period of school.

 

For the first quarter, a total of 105 boys and 107 girls had perfect attendance. Students cannot be tardy or miss one single day to be included in the listing.

 

Continuing throughout the school year, bicycles will be awarded each nine weeks to a girl and a boy who have attained perfect attendance.

 

Funding for the bicycles is provided by a student magazine fundraiser that is conducted during the fall. All proceeds from the magazine sales benefits the students in various ways, including the purchase of Laker Zone T-shirts for those students who follow the Laker Zone rules.

Throughout the week, students dressed for theme days, including wearing team jerseys to “team up” against drugs and clothes from the 60s, 70s, and 80s to “peace out” to drugs. Friday was “black out drugs” day, where students showed their support by wearing the Indian Lake School colors.
