PCLS CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF FUTURE BUSINESS LEADERS OF AMERICA

The Harvey High School chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) was started in 1995 by Ms. Rapport and three of her students, Larry DeBold, Chris Lillstrung and Justin Gibson affectionately known as the “Founding Members.” Ms. Rapport, Chris, Larry, and Justin have stayed connected over the years mostly through email and social media. This week they had the opportunity to meet in person in a very emotional 25th Anniversary reunion. The reunion gave Rapport and the Founding Members a chance to reflect on the FBLA program and how it has impacted each of their lives.

PCLS UPDATES: please visit https://www.painesville-city.k12.oh.us for full details

Fall School Opening- While we still await guidance from the state, we feel it important to provide our families with an update on the status of our discussions. Based upon family feedback, we intend to open under a “choice” model, where families can choose to send their children to school with every social distancing and sanitation precaution possible, or to keep their children home for online instruction. We know that families will require a great deal of information in order to make this decision, which will be provided. We intend to open school for students on August 24. Of course, it is quite possible that this plan could change. We will do our very best to provide as much information as possible as we continue to monitor the situation.

Commencement- Important information regarding the July 18 outdoor Commencement ceremony at Rec Park has been posted on the website and mailed to families.

Prom- Unfortunately, per the Health District, we are unable to hold this year’s prom.

Chromebook collection- Many of the Chromebooks currently in use will be reaching the end of their life cycle, and will not continue to operate in the coming weeks. We have scheduled a collection of all Chromebooks on July 16 and 17 between the hours of 11:00 am and 6:00 pm at Heritage Middle School. New Chromebooks will be issued to each student at a later time.

Teen Ambassador Board - Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost

The Ohio Attorney General’s office is looking for students to join their Teen Ambassador Board. This program is open to high school juniors and seniors from public, private, home, charter, and online schools located in Ohio. Ideal candidates are motivated, enthusiastic, self-starters who are interested in law and government.

The mission of the Teen Ambassador Board is to provide Ohio’s future leaders with an inside look at Ohio law and government. The Board consists of high school students from around the state. Applicants selected will serve a one-year term and convene twice in Columbus during their tenure on the Board. Members will advise our office on issues relating to teens and work with their peers to develop solutions to those issues. Students will be placed into small groups and advised by an Assistant Attorney General. Members will attend presentations on a wide variety of topics.

Students will also have the opportunity to meet with Attorney General Dave Yost, attend events around the state throughout the year, visit our Columbus and regional offices, interact with Assistant Attorneys General, and hear from various elected officials.

The Attorney General’s Teen Ambassador Board gives Ohio’s teens an unparalleled opportunity to engage in government and law. Students will address some of the greatest issues facing our state and develop solutions to improve the lives of Ohioans. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to receive training on important and pertinent matters, meet with elected officials and interact with Assistant Attorneys General. Previously, the Board met with Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, members of the Ohio Senate and House of Representatives, toured the Ohio Supreme Court and met with Supreme Court Justices, and spoke with senior administrative staff, employees, and BCI scientists of the Attorney General’s Office.

Teen Ambassador Board applications are due June 26, 2020. Acceptance letters for the program will be mailed by July 31. Additional information and the application for the program can be found at: https://bit.ly/30jqvan
