Elfie and Selfie

Columbus Grove celebrated Christmas with some extra special help this year. Elfie and Selfie made their grand debut with exciting adventures and escapades daily. Each morning students searched to find Elfie and Selfie and see what mess they had left behind. Smiles and giggles were heard in the halls when students discovered the mischievous elves. The final week before Christmas break CG’s own real life elf made his appearance on the roof.

November - Attitude of Gratitude

An attitude of gratitude means creating a conscious mindset and habit to be thankful, and express appreciation for every aspect of your life, both big and small. When you have a gratitude mindset you feel more confident, positive, optimistic, happy and joyful about the things you have, and the people that matter most.

1 Picture, No Explanation
This past week 7-12 students and staff were asked to share a picture of one thing they are grateful for. The pictures were used to create a schoolwide collage for a gratitude bulletin board. Thank you to all 7-12 students and staff who shared a picture of something they are grateful for. As you walk out the doors by the student parking lot, please check out the bulletin board. Our students and staff have many things in Columbus Grove they are grateful for and appreciate. Schoolwide we had over 250 pictures submitted!

The guidance office kept track of each grade level's percentage of participation for pictures submitted. The winners of the junior high competition were the 8th graders with 83% participation.

The junior class had the highest percentage of participation with 77%, followed by the sophomores, seniors, and freshmen. To the left - Grades 9-12 class presidents pose for a picture after the spirit stick was presented to the junior class president.
