Garrette Park sparkles<br />

for upcoming festivities<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

A holiday tradition in West Jefferson returns<br />

for another year.<br />

Festooned with hundreds of thousands of<br />

lights, Garrette Park is the place to go to experience<br />

a wonderland of Christmas spirit.<br />

Starting at 5 p.m. every night through Jan.<br />

1, the park’s trees twinkle from head to toe,<br />

and whimsical decorations dot the landscape.<br />

The public is welcome to stroll the<br />

grounds and take in the holiday atmosphere.<br />

The annual Christmas in the Park celebration<br />

is set for Dec. 8-9, 6-10 p.m. Everything<br />

is free; donations will be accepted to<br />

help offset costs.<br />

Santa will be available both nights, 6-10<br />

p.m., to visit with children to hear their<br />

wish lists. Parents are welcome to take pictures.<br />

Also running both nights are horsedrawn<br />

carriage rides for all ages and<br />

trackless train rides for children. For visits<br />

with Santa, participants are asked to sign<br />

up for a time slot by leaving their name and<br />

phone number at the Santa House. They<br />

will receive a text when it’s their turn. The<br />

same procedure applies for carriage and<br />

train rides; the sign-up spot for these activities<br />

is the Gingerbread House.<br />

Plenty of food will be served both nights.<br />

The menu includes chili, chicken and noodles,<br />

sloppy Joe’s, hot dogs, cookies, hot<br />

chocolate, coffee, and cold drinks.<br />

West Jefferson High School’s jazz band<br />

and choir will perform 6-9 p.m. Dec. 8. A<br />

lighted parade steps off at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 9,<br />

followed by more live music by the band,<br />

Newmania, 6:30-9 p.m. Anyone interested<br />

in taking part in the parade is asked to line<br />

up at American Legion Post 201, 9701 W.<br />

Broad St., between 4:30 and 5 p.m. Participants<br />

are asked to incorporate some type of<br />

illumination into their entry.<br />

Carol Beachy, president of the West Jefferson<br />

Christmas in the Park organization,<br />

encourages people to come out for the festivities<br />

Dec. 8-9 or anytime the month of <strong>December</strong><br />

to enjoy the lights.<br />

“It’s a community event made possible by<br />

local citizens for local citizens,” she said.<br />

To date, the main sponsors for this year’s<br />

Christmas in the Park are Adkins Roofing,<br />

The weather outside was a bit frightful<br />

due to wind and rain, but that didn’t<br />

keep people from enjoying London’s<br />

Old Fashioned Christmas on Nov. 26.<br />

Visitors traveled through the almostwinter<br />

wonderland in the heart of the<br />

city, shopping for gifts, decorating<br />

cookies, making holiday crafts, getting<br />

to know a few reindeer, and reminding<br />

Santa Claus to make a special stop at<br />

their house later this month. The 1811<br />

Downtown District hosted the event.<br />

Court seeks volunteers to advocate for children<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

A new volunteer opportunity is available through the juvenile<br />

court system in <strong>Madison</strong> County.<br />

The Court Appointed Special Advocates Program (CASA) seeks<br />

adults interested in giving youths in the custody or care of Children’s<br />

Services a voice. Volunteers advocate for children who are in<br />

the court system as a result of abuse, neglect, or dependency. Oftentimes,<br />

these children are in foster care, a group home, or a treatment<br />

facility for mental health.<br />

The advocate’s job is to listen to the child, find out what their<br />

wishes are moving forward, and present the child’s best interests<br />

to the court. The ultimate goal is to reunify the child with their family<br />

by linking them to appropriate resources.<br />

“In general, CASA is a program that recruits community volunteers<br />

who want to give back to children. You don’t have to have a<br />

certain background, just a heart for helping kids,” said Brianna<br />

Britton, <strong>Madison</strong> County’s CASA program director.<br />

New lab encourages Canaan students to ink Big<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

One group develops a board game using<br />

modeling clay circuits to make parts of the<br />

board light up.<br />

Another group, while operating remotecontrol<br />

spheres with internal gears that<br />

stay upright no matter which way the<br />

spheres roll, brainstorms ways to apply the<br />

engineering to real-world problems, like<br />

protecting passengers in car rollovers or<br />

preventing rollovers altogether.<br />

A trio explains the math and biology behind<br />

the way station they created to support<br />

Monarch butterflies on their annual 2,000-<br />

mile migration.<br />

The presenters and innovators are fifthand<br />

sixth-graders at Canaan Middle School<br />

in the Jonathan Alder School District, and<br />

the occasion is the Nov. 13 grand opening of<br />

the second Think Big Space in the district.<br />

Sponsored and supported by Amazon Web<br />

Services (AWS), Think Big Spaces are classrooms/labs<br />

that encourage students to take<br />

deep dives into exploring their interests and<br />

dreaming about their futures. With a focus on<br />

STEM—science, technology, engineering, and<br />

math, as well as the arts—AWS works with<br />

partner schools to design and equip the rooms<br />

and develop programs and curriculum.<br />

“We provide current technology that is<br />

grade, age, and learner appropriate,” said Tim<br />

Harman, AWS community engagement manager.<br />

The company also provides mentors that<br />

collaborate with and support teachers.<br />

To date, AWS has sponsored 40 Think Big<br />

Spaces worldwide, 20 of which are located at<br />

Ohio schools. Two of those 20 are in the<br />

Jonathan Alder School District. All of them<br />

provide hands-on STEM learning through robotics,<br />

coding, 3D modeling, and the like.<br />

The first Jonathan Alder Think Big<br />

Space opened in 2021 at the high school. It<br />

serves grades K-12 and the community. Students<br />

use the space on a rotating basis, with<br />

the younger students bussed in for their sessions.<br />

Over the last two years, thousands of<br />

students and hundreds of parents, school<br />

staff members, and area residents have experienced<br />

the space.<br />

Emily Byers, Jonathan Alder’s STEM facilitator,<br />

said she has seen students gain<br />

confidence in trying new things, think cre-<br />

Students explore the new Think Big Space, sponsored by Amazon<br />

Web Services, at Canaan Middle School.<br />

atively, develop deeper understandings of<br />

their interests and possible career paths,<br />

and even experience a sense of belonging<br />

through the Think Big Space.<br />

“After the first year of the program, I<br />

knew I wanted to provide more,” she said.<br />

With AWS on board, the Jonathan Alder<br />

team spent the past year prepping for the<br />

Think Big Space at Canaan Middle School.<br />

They made modules that promote STEM<br />

skill-building. They also enlisted the help of<br />

students without the students knowing they<br />

were helping to design the space.<br />

“We asked them to brainstorm their best<br />

maker spaces. It was hypothetical to them,<br />

but we actualized their ideas,” said Byers,<br />

adding the students were thrilled to find out<br />

they played an integral role in developing<br />

the space, formerly a project room adjacent<br />

to Canaan Middle School’s library.<br />

Canaan students spend time in the Think Big Space every three<br />

days. Byers said the students look forward to that time.<br />

“Our kids are excited,” she said. “They are learning and don’t<br />

even know they are learning.”<br />

Fully engaged, the students are gaining knowledge that sticks,<br />

she added.<br />

“We’re guiding students toward a design-thinking mindset,” said<br />

Hannah Rings, Canaan’s Think Big Space teacher.<br />

AWS strives to remove barriers for students through the Think<br />

Big Spaces, Harman stated, allowing them to not only thrive but<br />

also learn how to handle failure and setbacks.<br />

State Rep. Brian Stewart was among the guests at the Canaan<br />

Think Big Space grand opening. He said “workforce” and “STEM”<br />

are big buzzwords at the State House. He thanked AWS for investing<br />

in the communities in which they locate their facilities by partnering<br />

with schools.<br />

State Senator Stephanie Kunze mentioned AWS’s growth in the<br />

region. She applauded AWS and Jonathan Alder Schools for “elevating<br />

students, staff, and the future workforce.”<br />
