mlboose@norwalkreflector.com MONROEVILLE Two Monroeville High School seniors remember the transition from eighth grade to high school so they gave a little help to girls about to go it with a giant slumber party. "I was terrified to go into high school," Whitney Quillen said. "I want to make them feel like they will be accepted." So she and fellow senior Brittany Welch organized a Beauty Inside and Out Lockin for eighth grade girls as their senior project. Welch said the two wanted to boost the girls' self-esteem and teach them not to feel intimidated when they walk into Monroeville High School as freshman next fall.

Last week I made several casual references to "old" Huron County and its establishment. Thinking it over, I realized that some of my readers might not be familiar with the whole story of our county's background. Of course, I did tell this same story in my very first column 36 years ago this week, but maybe some of my readers missed it then! Connecticut citizens who lost private property during British raids in the American Revolution were given 500,000 acres of land as compensation at the western end of Connecticut's Western Reserve of land in northern Ohio. This action took more than 10 years from the end of the Revolution, as the legislature argued that it had no funds for compensation, and finally settled on giving land at a certain value per acre.

Q. My son gets average grades, but I know he could do better. Some parents pay their children for good grades. Is this a good idea? A. Yesterday, grade cards were issued to all students in the Norwalk City Schools. As parents, we all want our children to do well and we are constantly looking for ways to motivate our children. Often times, parents feel that they should pay their children for achieving good grades. Periodically, some schools do experiment by offering a financial incentive to boost motivation. As recently as this year, two schools in Georgia are participating in the "Learn & Earn" initiative which pays students an hourly wage for taking math and science classes. This initiative was the brainstorm of former House Speaker, Newt Gingrich. This latest experiment notwithstanding, most experts believe that paying for good grades is a bad idea.
