Sunman-Dearborn principal and staff earn national, state honor

first_imgSunman, In. — Sunman Dearborn principal, Matt Maple, and his staff earned their 1st designation as one of 15 other Indiana “Schools to Watch” who have received this state and national recognition as an exemplary middle school. Nationally they join over 450 middle level (grades 5 – 9) designated “Schools to Watch.” This designation requires a year long process of completing the application and meeting all 4 domains of the “Schools to Watch” criteria of Academic Excellence, Developmental Responsiveness, Social Equity, and Organizational Support and Processes with supporting evidence from their curriculum and schedule.In addition these schools become mentor schools state-wide and nationally for any middle level schools who are seeking help as a school or in any of the domains of criteria. These schools are prepared for visits and networking of any kind. IMLEA has trained over 50 administrators and teachers in Indiana in the STW criteria so that they are prepared to review applications, participate in site visits, and mentor other IN middle schools. All “Schools to Watch” must go through re-designation every 3 years to ensure the continued validity of the designation.Teams from new and re-designated schools will attend the National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform’s Summer Conference in June of 2018 in Arlington, VA. They will present a session highlighting a program or practice at their school for other states’ attendees; spend an hour with an IN legislator on the “Hill” advocating for middle school best practices; attend the sessions presented by other national STW, and attend a gala dinner and brunch to publicly receive their engraved awards..last_img read more

Germany Confident against Mexico

first_imgCONFEDERATIONS CUPGermany is the king of the penalty shoot-out – but the world champion hope to see off Mexico in wednesday’s Confederations Cup semifinal without needing dreaded spot kicks.The Germans have won all five penalty shoot-outs they have faced since 1976 at either World Cup finals or European championships. Joachim Loew’s team faces the Mexicans in Sochi for a place in Sunday’s Confed Cup final *** in St Petersburg against either Portugal or Chile, who meet later on Wednesday in Kazan’s other semifinal.Having won their Confed Cup group, Germany are on a 13-match unbeaten run, dating back just under a year to their Euro 2016 semifinal defeat to hosts France.Left-back Jonas Hector said Germany’s young guns have not yet practised spot-kicks and hope to beat Mexico over the 90 minutes.“We would like to avoid this situation (penalties),” admitted Hector.“We haven’t specifically trained for it and we’ll take it as it comes.”Nevertheless, the Germans seem to have penalty-taking in their blood.Their Under-21 team beat England 4-3 on penalties on Tuesday to book their place in Friday’s final at the European Under-21 championships in Poland.Loew said he does not have a list of his top five penalty takers.“Sometimes the players practise after training, but you can’t train for what will happen on the night,” the German coach said.“If it happens, I will look at the faces of my players after the final whistle, take into account who is ready and who has missed them in the past, then make a decision,” added Loew.The Germans expect a battle royal against Mexico’s come-back kings.The Mexicans came from behind in all three of their group matches, beating both New Zealand and Russia 2-1 after drawing 2-2 with Portugal, when they twice equalised.“It will be aggressive in a positive sense, it is how they have been playing for years,” said Loew.“They hunt the ball with all their players and when they have it, they play it deep quickly.”Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio, who has chopped and changed his side so far, will be without suspended captain Andres Guardado.Loew has promised changes with forward Lars Stindl, who has scored twice so far in Russia, expected to return along with left-back Hector.With Manuel Neuer missing the Confed Cup after foot surgery, Loew says Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen will be Germany’s goalkeeper for the rest of the tournament.Mexico’s all-time top-scorer Javier Hernandez knows all about German football after two seasons with Bayer Leverkusen.“We know them, we know about the things that could make them suffer, but we are going to focus on our team and our tactics,” said the ex-Manchester United striker.The Germans beat Mexico 4-3 when the teams last met in the third-place play-off at the 2005 Confed Cup in Germany.They make no secret of their confidence and expect to reach Sunday’s final.“I think in terms of gut feeling, we’re heading to St Petersburg,” said Loew.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Syracuse men’s basketball beat writers predict team’s record, postseason finish, MVP

first_img Published on November 10, 2016 at 8:14 am Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse opens its season on Friday in the Carrier Dome against Colgate at 7 p.m. The Orange is leaning on three transfers — Paschal Chukwu, Andrew White and John Gillon — to fill holes in the its lineup left by the departure of last year’s top three scorers.Here’s how our beat writers think the season will play out.Connor GrossmanRegular Season Record: 22-9NCAA Tournament Finish: Sweet 16MVP: Tyler LydonX-Factor: Andrew WhiteIn supposedly the penultimate season of his career, Jim Boeheim faces the challenge of meshing his most diversified roster in years. Returning starters will share the floor with fifth-year transfers and first-year players. This melting pot of experience will not mix perfectly together, and Boeheim may not fully figure his team out until a few weeks of conference play. But there’s undeniable talent, from a budding star in Tyler Lydon to dynamic freshman Tyus Battle. Nebraska transfer Andrew White needs to help Lydon fuel the offense, and SU will survive long enough to tease a deep run into March.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMatt SchneidmanRegular Season Record: 24-7NCAA Tournament: Sweet 16MVP: Tyus BattleX-Factor: Paschal ChukwuOn paper, Syracuse has a far better chance to reach the Final Four than it did last season. The Orange has more pieces to help it get there, and a 24-7 regular season will set SU up for a No. 3 or 4 seed in the Big Dance. Paschal Chukwu, all 7 feet, 2 inches of him, proves to be Syracuse’s X-factor by anchoring one of the country’s best defenses from the middle of the zone. This year, though, the Orange’s run ends in the Sweet 16 and team MVP Tyus Battle has a tough decision to stay in school or enter the NBA Draft.Paul SchwedelsonRegular season record: 23-8NCAA Tournament Finish: Sweet 16MVP: Tyler LydonX-Factor: Tyus BattleJim Boeheim will have the chance this year to go four or even five deep on the bench, allowing Syracuse to be more flexible in its schemes. Expect to see more full-court pressing and more transition offense. The most indispensable player on the team will be Tyler Lydon, who can play either forward position and center based on the lineup surrounding him. Boeheim said he’s “probably” the only player he’s coached that has done that. Likely coming off the bench will be Tyus Battle, who has already shown in exhibitions he can provide a spark. How SU’s new players mesh together will determine this team’s fate. Commentslast_img read more

Dodgers among contenders shopping for bullpen help

first_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies MILWAUKEE – Kelvin Herrera and Brad Hand and Jeurys Familia have already changed teams. More relievers figure to be on the move in the next 10 days.Virtually every team that considers itself in contention is looking to upgrade – or at least bolster – its bullpen before the non-waiver trade deadline at the end of the month.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.The Dodgers are certainly among the teams in that market, though GM Farhan Zaidi would commit to nothing other than a promise that the Dodgers “will continue to shop and look for ways to make our team better.”“As for the pitching side, that’s going to be something we continue to evaluate, both the bullpen and the rotation,” he said. “But we have no specific plans there. Talks are fluid and ongoing, as they always are this time of year. We’re just going to continue to look for upgrades that make sense for us.” Four months into the season, Roberts still doesn’t have a clear idea of which relievers he can depend upon from one night to another.“We know these guys will take the ball every day. They’re going to compete,” Roberts said when asked if he knew what he has in the current relief corps. “We know Scott Alexander can get lefties and righties out. He can put the ball on the ground.“Outside of that … to be honest, we’re still trying to figure it out.”TURNER TIME Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner was not in the starting lineup again Saturday and has not played since July 11 due to an injured adductor muscle in his right side. Roberts said Turner is running at 85 percent in workouts but Turner acknowledged “it’s there a little bit still at times.”“I’m going through a gauntlet of things, trying to check off all the boxes,” Turner said. “I’m fine swinging. I took ground balls yesterday, felt pretty good. I can run to a certain point and keep it in control..“But I did it on a checked swing (during the series in San Diego) so that’s one box that’s kind of hard to check off.”If the Dodgers had placed Turner on the DL at the time of his injury – or backdated the move in the days before the All-Star break – he would be eligible to return now. But they have been carrying Turner on the active roster despite his limitations and now could not backdate the move fully.A DL move now “just doesn’t make sense,” Roberts said, because the Dodgers would be without Turner for another six or seven days. Turner expects to return sooner than that and Roberts said “I’d like to think we get him in there” Sunday.“I didn’t think it would have taken this long,” Turner said of his initial expectation. “I’m available to pinch-hit. If (Friday’s Brewers starter Wade) Miley had gone back out (for the seventh inning), I would have been the second guy (pinch-hitting).“Just trying to continue progressing and go day by day.”REHAB ROUNDUPRoberts said Yasiel Puig is in Arizona and has begun hitting off a tee and soft toss. Puig has been on the DL since suffering an oblique injury on July 8. “Our goal” is to have Puig come off the DL and rejoin the Dodgers at some point during the four-game series in Atlanta next week, according to Roberts.“That’s the plan,” Roberts said. “Where it stays on course depends on how he feels.”Right-hander Pedro Baez made his second rehab appearance with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday, pitching a scoreless inning with one hit allowed and two strikeouts. Baez will need to show he has recovered enough from his shoulder injury to pitch more than one inning in an outing and also pitch on back-to-back days before he is activated from the DL, Roberts said.ALSOThe Dodgers will send right-handers Ross Stripling (Monday) and Kenta Maeda (Tuesday) to the mound for the first two games of their series in Philadelphia then likely debut their six-man rotation. Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler is the likely starter for the series finale on Wednesday against the Phillies.UP NEXTDodgers LHP Alex Wood (5-5, 3.92 ERA) at Brewers LHP Brent Suter (8-6, 4.39 ERA), Sunday, 11:10 a.m., SportsNet LA (where available)center_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Dodgers manager Dave Roberts continues his own search.
