Practice field project days #184-209 - Be sure to follow the updates on our social media accounts, website, and app! ➑️ Reminder from the last post - On December 18, our district was informed that the subcontractor providing the steel erector crew for the project has gone out of business. This information was directly communicated to us by our contractor, Elford Inc., who has already established a process for securing a replacement subcontractor to complete the work. Elford provides payment to subcontractors for work completed. Our district and Elford are not involved with how a subcontractor pays their employees. ➑️ GOOD NEWS - Elford Inc. was able to secure a new subcontractor quickly, and they were able to mobilize onsite last week. πŸŽ‰ We are excited that Surgent Construction has joined the team. ➑️ What happens now? A third party inspection has to be completed in order for Surgent to warranty the steel work. This is a typical process and is a requirement for the warranty. Over the next couple of weeks, you'll see a lot of people and equipment onsite. If you live in the area, you may have even seen a group of team members working in the snow last Friday taking hundreds of pictures. Part of the inspection requires them to inspect every piece of steel, bolt, etc., which means that you will see steel coming down just to be put back up. Again, the inspection process is only expected to take a couple of weeks. Then, Surgent will move forward with placing the rest of the steel for the building. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ We welcome questions and will continue to keep you updated. 😊 #legacyofleadership #mcclaintigers #GEVSDprojectprogress

January is School Board Appreciation Month! Recently our Board members were asked to answer some Would You Rather questions. Today we are recognizing Mrs. Marilyn Mitchell. Check out her answers below! 1. Would you rather have the ability to read minds or become invisible at will? I would rather be a mind reader than become invisible at will. By reading minds, I would really know people. I would know what people really think and be able to get the whole picture. 2. Would you rather be the funniest person in the room or the most intelligent? Being a leader, I would prefer to be the most intelligent person in the room. On the other hand, I love a social gathering and do tell a joke or two. Can I divide this and be both? 3. Would you rather have an unlimited supply of books or an unlimited supply of music? I would rather have an unlimited supply of music over an unlimited supply of books. I grew up with both. I always won the summer reading club when I was a child. From that age, I went on to music. I love to listen to all sorts of music. I am a happy mix of both. I love embracing my grandchildren with songs from long ago. All 8 of them know my favorite ditties. 4. Would you rather be able to control the weather or talk to animals? I would rather be able to talk to animals than be able to control the weather. I am not an animal lover but I'm married to an animal lover. I think that if I could converse with animals I would soon love them. I like the seasonal changes we have in Ohio, never knowing for sure what the weather is going to be. 5. Would you rather be an Olympic athlete or the President for a day? If given the choice I would rather be an Olympic athlete than the President for one day. I cannot begin to imagine what all the President has to do every day. As an Olympic athlete, I would try to impress upon students the value of training and goal setting no matter what the sport. 6. Would you rather have to write using only your non-dominant hand or only be able to walk backward? I would rather write with my non-dominant hand than to have to walk backward. I do a lot of writing and would prefer to write using my left hand in opposition to walking backward. I think it would be hard to keep your balance walking backward. 7. Would you rather go on an adventure with Indiana Jones or Harry Potter? I would rather go on an adventure with Harry Potter instead of Indiana Jones. Both are pretty unrealistic. I have read the first Harry Potter book. My grandson bought it for me. He has read all of them. I can visualize myself getting into some of the mishaps that Harry gets into. 8. Would you rather stay up late or get up early? I would rather get up early than stay up late. I am a list person. I like to get up and get my list accomplished. I believe in goal setting. I love life and live each day to the fullest. Having eight grandchildren there is always a ballgame or concert to attend. I am their biggest fan. 9. Would you rather have one arm replaced with a tentacle or a lobster claw (assuming that there is no option to keep the one arm)? I would rather have one arm replaced with a tentacle instead of a lobster claw. I would want my arm to be able to move freely and be able to pick up small objects. Please do not let this ever happen! 10. Would you rather never eat ice cream again or never eat cake again? I would rather never eat ice cream again than never eat cake again. I do not do dairy very well so this was an easy question. I love to bake and can't imagine not being able to have strawberry shortcake, German chocolate cake, or carrot cake. Thank you to Marilyn for sharing! Our district appreciates her dedication as a Board member! #legacyofleadership #mcclaintigers

January is School Board Appreciation Month! Recently our Board members were asked to answer some Would You Rather questions. Today we are recognizing Mrs. Rachel Fraley. Check out her answers below! 1. Would you rather have the ability to read minds or become invisible at will? Become invisible at will. I definitely would not want to know everyone’s personal thoughts. 2. Would you rather be the funniest person in the room or the most intelligent? It depends on who else is in the room. 3. Would you rather have an unlimited supply of books or an unlimited supply of music? Unlimited supply of books. I love to read when I can find the time. 4. Would you rather be able to control the weather or talk to animals? Control the weather. It messes up too many plans, and I hate the cold. It would be 70 degrees + year round! 5. Would you rather be an Olympic athlete or the President for a day? Olympic athlete. It would be awesome to see all your hard work pay off. 6. Would you rather have to write using only your non-dominant hand or only be able to walk backward? Write using only my non-dominant hand. I think I could learn to write with practice. 7. Would you rather go on an adventure with Indiana Jones or Harry Potter? Indiana Jones. I wouldn’t want to be a muggle in the wizard world. 8. Would you rather stay up late or get up early? Stay up late. I’m not a morning person! 9. Would you rather have one arm replaced with a tentacle or a lobster claw (assuming that there is no option to keep the one arm)? A tentacle because it would be more functional. 10. Would you rather never eat ice cream again or never eat cake again? Never eat cake again. I like ice cream too much. Can I still eat ice cream cake? Thank you to Rachel for sharing! Our district appreciates her dedication as a Board member! #legacyofleadership #mcclaintigers

What's happening here? πŸ€” You may have noticed four places that look like this around campus. These bases are for our new wayfinder signage that is coming soon! Very SIMILAR to the sign shown in the picture, our new signs will be topped with "Home of the Tigers" and our new Tiger graphic that was developed last school year. 🀩 For those of us in Tiger Nation, we are familiar with locations on campus. Now our guests and new families to the district will be able to find locations easily. ☺️ #legacyofleadership #mcclaintigers
