"Why is it important to attend an event like this? What if one day you had an accident that rendered you a quadriplegic or a paraplegic? What if one day you were told you had a neurological disorder that would limit you to a wheelchair for the rest of your life?

Paul and Joyce (sm)What if, under these unimaginable circumstances, you became an Olympic Gold medalist or famous physicist or dancer, named one of the fifty most beautiful people in the world, met with the Dalai Lama or Heads of State? What if you climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro unassisted? Or what if you just went sailing?

Individuals with disabilities perform amazing feats everyday...big and small...Feats that require courage, tenacity, creativity, character and determination. They are true inspirations in our lives as we meet our own unique challenges, whatever those may be."

09/21/09 Reader Submitted Comments: There Are Health Code Violations In The Greenwich Public Schools

To The Editor:

There are unacceptable conditions in the public school districts' cafeterias.

These major food- safety violations could lead to food-borne illnesses.

Some of the most serious violations include such things as serving meats or poultry at unsafe temperatures or dented cans in the schools' pantries, a botulism risk.

Some of the minor violations include things like mold-like substances, grease accumulations and rodent droppings. Most of the town's public schools have other minor violations such as missing soap, dripping refrigerators, dirty equipment and general disrepair.

Another problem is flies, dead roaches and rodent droppings in kitchens, The district should get a new pest-control contractor, and make sure extermination is done weekly.

There is also rusted equipment, a lack of three-bay sinks for washing, rinsing and sanitizing, messy garbage storage, missing sneeze guards, and dirty refrigerator door gaskets.

Something must be done immediately about the major food-safety violations related to the storage of prepared foods at unsafe temperatures.

)9/21/09 Greenwich Board Of Education Media Alert: Tony Mullen to Speak at Greenwich High School

National Teacher of the Year, Anthony Mullen, has been selected as the
'Local Shaper of the Year' by Ms. Eleanor Ritch's Shapers classes at
Greenwich High School.

You are invited to attend:
A Conversation with Mr. Mullen
Wednesday, September 23, 2009
9:56AM - 10:39AM
or
10:44AM - 11:27AM
Greenwich High School
Media Center, Meeting Room 2

""Shapers" is an interdisciplinary humanities course (at Greenwich High
School) in which students explore how human beings have shaped their
individual experiences in ways that have had a significant impact on
society."

For their first assignment this year students were asked to nominate, in
writing, great Shapers of the World throughout all of world history. In
addition, they were asked to nominate a local, modern Shaper of the World,
someone who has made a positive impact on the world.

Shapers teacher, Eleanor Ritch said, "I wanted students to nominate a
person who is shaping and improving our world today. Many students
nominated Anthony Mullen due to the fact that he received the 2009
National Teacher of the Year award from President Barack Obama. The
students voted overwhelmingly for Anthony over other local figures from
the CT/NYC area, including some rather famous politicians, musicians,
authors, doctors and medical professionals, artists, and community service
leaders. I was quite impressed by how much the students respect a fellow
educator!"

Quotes from student papers:
Ben Langford, nominated Anthony Mullen because he was impressed with how
Anthony has "managed to build connections with hard to reach students."

Taylor Dawson nominated Mr. Mullen because, "As a teacher he is shaping
the minds of our future here in Greenwich. Now as Teacher of the Year he
is able to go from making a difference for just a few students to
influencing students and teachers across the nation."

Katie Beale nominated Anthony Mullen because, "he believes every student
has his or her own back-story, and the teacher's job is to help them
'write a happy ending' and 'radically transform fractured lives.'"

Hans Christian Thalheim nominated him because he was "selected as Teacher
of the Year and was also a teacher at Arch School in Greenwich. He deals
with academically challenged students, and I am sure he has seen his share
of tough cases as a former NYPD homicide detective."

James Utton nominated Anthony Mullen because, "his selfless acts inspire
me to give of myself in any way possible to teens who are struggling in
high school."

Please let me know if you will be attending.
Thanks,
Kim

DISTRICT PLANS FOR EARLY RELEASE COLLABORATION DAYS
Community Organizations Support District Improvement Efforts by Planning Special After
School Activities for Early Release Days
(For immediate release: Greenwich, CT – Friday, September 18, 2009) In Spring 2009, the District proposed,
and the Board of Education approved, the addition of five early release days for the 2009-10 school year to be
used for teacher collaboration time. “Research clearly provides a strong rationale for providing staff with regular
collaboration time that allows them to engage in data analysis and instructional planning that meets the needs of
all learners.
This collaboration time has been established in direct support of the District’s primary initiative – implementing
Data Teams at the District, School, Grade and Program levels. Data Teams are groups of staff members –
whether at the District, School or Grade/Program level – that meet regularly on a continuous improvement
cycle. They are charged with reviewing student achievement data, establishing goals, and developing and
implementing targeted instructional strategies and results indicators. Data Teams are a research-based strategy
for improving instruction with demonstrated success. Noted educational researchers, Richard DuFour and
Robert Marzano, have concluded that “there is abundant evidence that organizing people into teams in which
they work together to achieve common goals is a powerful structure for promoting accountability and improving
student achievement (2009).”

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Sidney Freund noted, “The staff is looking forward to having this dedicated
block of time to concentrate on planning for improvement – Teachers do have regular collaboration time each
week during the school day, however, they are short blocks of time. Teachers also have contractual time that
extends slightly beyond the school day, however this is generally devoted to time with students for extra-help
and/or as advisors to clubs, service organizations and to music and athletic programs. The five collaboration
days are designed to connect to Wednesday afternoon faculty meetings, providing an extended block of time for
more in-depth or prolonged discussions and training opportunities. We know that this may cause an
inconvenience for some families, and we are working with local community organizations to provide options for
afterschool activities and childcare. We also know that, based on scientific research, time devoted to
collaborative work yields improvement in achievement and we appreciate the support from our school families
in providing this opportunity for our teachers – and ultimately, for our students.”

The early release days are included on the school calendar and were distributed to all families via the August
Packets and on the District and School Web Sites. In addition, families have been informed of these additional
early release days via public meetings, local media coverage, letters home, and/or other venues executed by
building leaders.

The five early release* Collaboration Wednesdays are as follows:

Wednesday, September 23, 2009
Wednesday, October 21, 2009
Wednesday, January 20, 2010
Wednesday, April 28, 2010
Wednesday, May 19, 2010

* Students will be release two-hours earlier than regular dismissal times.

Local Community Organizations Support Improving Student Achievement:
Local community organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club and the YMCA have generously agreed to
support the District’s efforts to provide this critical time for teachers by offering after school programs for each
of the five “Collaboration Wednesdays.” Families may choose to register* for a program at one of the many
participating community organizations. Community organizations are working to provide themed programs for
early release Wednesdays that may include The Environment, the Olympics and the Arts. The Board of
Education, and the staff of the Greenwich Public Schools would like to acknowledge the cooperation and
support of our community organizations in partnering with us to provide this opportunity for teachers to
collaborate in service of improved achievement for all students.

*Transportation and program fees are the responsibility of each family.

PRESS RELEASE:

Officer of the Month


The Greenwich Police Department has selected Police Officers Carl Johnson,
Matthew Nardi and Sean Welsh as its recipients of the Officer of the Month Award
for July 2009.


On Monday, July 6 2009 at approximately 10:16 A.M., members of the Uniformed
Services Division were detailed to 65 Cambridge Drive on a report of a suspicious
vehicle, a BMW, parked in the driveway.


An initial inquiry of the vehicle’s registration revealed that the plates belonged on a
Chrysler type vehicle.


The officers subsequently conducted an in depth investigation that resulted in two(2)
subjects being identified and a number of items being discovered in the vehicle that
had been reported stolen from other vehicles within the Town of Greenwich
sometime during the evening hours of July 4 and morning hours of July 5, 2009.


The officers’ training as well as their investigative and interview skills led to the
arrest of two suspects responsible for eleven (11) motor vehicle break-ins in the
central area of town and the recovery of property valued in excess of $1000.00
.

Congratulations to Officers Carl Johnson, Matthew Nardi and Sean Welsh on a job
well done.

LEADING WITH KINDNESS: HOW GOOD PEOPLE CONSISTENTLY GET SUPERIOR RESULTS
A Short History of Women
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is pleased to welcome Greenwich and New York City resident and author William F. Baker, Ph.D., as he visits Just Books to sign copies of his newest book Leading with Kindness: How Good People Consistently Get Superior Results (Amacom; $24.95). Bill Baker experienced leading with kindness firsthand during his 20 years at the helm of Educational Broadcasting Corp., parent company of WNET-TV (Channel Thirteen) and WLIW-TV (Channel 21). It inspired him to affirm and refine his notion of what honorable bosses can accomplish. With his friend Michael O'Malley, Ph.D., Baker did extensive research and interviewed dozens of leaders in diverse organizations. They share their insights into strong, effective leadership in Leading with Kindness: How Good People Consistently Get Superior Results. Today, many leaders have realized that when it comes to business, nice guys often finish first. Old-fashioned images of corporate callousness and greed have been replaced by a gentler, more human conception of great leadership. But how does one define "kindness" in the context of business? And what is the best way to "use" this deceptively complex notion as a guiding principle to lead an organization successfully into the future?
