The club will meet for their March meeting. They will celebrate:

  • First day of Spring
  • St. Patrick’s Day
  • Spring Break

“This is a fun meeting since everyone is excited for break and warm weather. We made sure people will come by having it earlier because of students going on vacation,” said Katie Touvelle, 12, president of Stepping Out Board.

Their meeting will be Mar. 20, 2:30-3:30 p.m. They will:

The meeting is sticking to their regular schedule of members bringing food, talking with a small activity. They make the meeting fun and relaxing versus having a strict schedule of activities to do in just one hour.

“Over the course of the year I have made friends during the meetings which makes it more enjoyable,” said Sammy Chacksfield, 9.

“I always look forward to meetings because I get to meet new people and see friends I normally don’t see during the school day,” said Hannah Abramson, 12.

Lauren Kurtzer, Creative Projects Director
Hi! My name is Lauren Kurtzer and I am a senior here at SHS; thus making it my fourth year in convergence journalism. Looking back on everything I learned and done in room 115, I can not believe it went by that quickly. Being on the staff of The Leaf I have picked up many skills on writing, design, and leadership that I can take to the future. I learned many of those skills through leadership positions of feature chief sophomore year; associate editor junior year, where I made sure articles are up to AP Style; creative projects director this year, I am part of a team that works on the major cover stories like the crazy election. I have written and designed for all four of our platforms. For the past three years, I have also written a sports column on every issue; I cover the morale issues of the NFL and my teams the Reds, Bengals and Buckeyes. Outside of room 115, I am the co-captain of the dance team I have been on for four years, the Flyerettes. I am also heavily involved in the Jewish community. I am the Programming Vice President for my temple’s youth group, which is a part of NFTY Ohio Valley, and the Social Action Programmer for Young Judaea Midwest youth movement. On Sundays, I am a madricha or assistant teacher at my Religious School.
