School Expectation Reminders

This week we are reviewing our School Expectation Reminders in the cafeteria. Students, this means you must show respect, have responsibility, maintain order and cooperate with others while in the lunchroom.

Our acronym for the cafeteria is LUNCH.

  • L = Level 2 Voices – Talking to people seated at either side and directly across
  • U = Use Good Manners – Examples of good manners are saying please and thank you while receiving your food and appropriately using your silverware while eating
  • N = No Wandering – Stay in your seat and raise your hand if you need assistance from one of the adults
  • C = Clean up after yourself – Take responsibility for making sure you have not left wrappers, spills, or food behind.
  • H = Hands, feet and objects to self – Always important in a school setting

When we all follow this policy we can achieve our goal that the cafeteria will be a safe, clean, and calm environment where students, staff and visitors interact with respect and courtesy.

Conclusion

Thanks for listening and remember that at this school, no matter what you do, always do your best.

Have a great day!

The MS Archery team traveled to Louisville, KY last week for the NASP National Tournament and had a very successful showing. The MS Team shot a total of 3286 and the ES Team shot 3004, which are new team records for both groups and qualify them for the World Championship Tournament in June at Myrtle Beach, SC. The team also had the highest finish ever by an individual and the 2nd best score ever at Nationals as Kayla Gray shot a 293/300 for a 3rd Place finish among 2326 MS Girls. Overall the MS Team placed 24th out of 206 teams and the elementary placed 61st out of 105 teams in the Bullseye Tournament. Congratulations to all participants.

There are not any MS events tonight, but on behalf of the Johnson Family, the HS Athletic Department and the HS Track team, I want to thank the MS Track Athletes for braving the nasty weather on Friday night to move hurdles, rake pits, run results from the finish line to the press box and whatever else was needed at the Heather Johnson Track Invitational. It was a brutal and late night, but the MS helpers were fantastic. Thanks so much.

Notes from Hugh

Hi Folks,

UWEC Music the last four weekends and a soccer tournament this weekend for Hugh. One of these weekends I will wake up at home on both Saturday and Sunday and have nowhere to go. Maybe in September? 🙂

I would like to thank the Title staff for organizing anther fun-filled and educational evening this past Thursday with Read S’More night. We appreciate your work in promoting reading in a way that is engaging and fun. We had a nice turnout.

There are twelve days of school remaining and much to do in those twelve days. Keep plugging away until the very end and be sure to rely on each other more than ever at this time so that we can be there for our youngsters. For many of them, the end of school is a very anxious time. Mike shared this picture on his Facebook Timeline. How true is that?

Have a great week,

Hugh

­­EEP

The final piece of EE for all professional staff, the Professional Goal Setting Review, is due next Friday, May 27. Unlike past due dates, this one has very little flex with the school year ending June 1 and the last day for staff the following day. Even though I do not spend my entire Memorial Day marching as in the past, Memorial Day weekend has become the Weekend of EEP (cue the fireworks). Of course, with Hugh entering 6th grade next year, Memorial Day marching will return for another nine years until Elise graduates. Zooikes! EEP and Marching. Don’t worry, my music colleagues are aware of my “love” for marching.

Anyway, back on topic. I hope to have as much done over the Memorial Day weekend to be ready for the required summative review for those affected, and to close out other staff EE documents before everyone leaves. If an extension is needed beyond Friday, I ask that folks make a personal visit to one’s evaluator to hammer out a plan.

Visitor

A message from Mr. Grove:

On Wednesday (May 18) Bill Banks will be touring around our school district and popping in and out of classrooms.  Mr. Banks will be one of our presenters for our opening in-service for 2016-17 and wants to visit classrooms to help him prepare and to grow his feel for our district.  His focus with us next Fall will be active learning strategies.  Bill is planning on visiting as many classrooms as possible, but if you would specifically like him to make a point to visit yours, please let your principal know so he can make a point to visit during a specific time.  Again, he is just trying to grow his overall knowledge of our instruction to customize a presentation for us next Fall.

Recognition Rally

The 4K-2 Rec Rally for Wed. May 25 is still a go at 8:15. However, the 3-5 Rally needs a new date and time. After consulting with Mr. Georgeson, he informed me that May 25 is also the day that 8th Grade Promotion festivities are planned and they need to start setting up in the cafeteria and gym. Additionally, the MS BUMPS Cart product is also being delivered for pick up by students and parents. The cafeteria will be a busy place. Any thoughts on May 31 in the PM? Other ideas? Input is welcome.

Article: Mispronouncing Students’ Names: A Slight That Can Cut Deep

I take great effort to try and pronounce student names correctly when introducing middle school students for the Pledge, Reading STAR Students on the announcements, acknowledging students at Recognition Rally’s. I also take care to apologize in advance with sincerity if I anticipate mispronunciations and I encourage students to seek me out and correct me for the future. This article highlights a few extreme examples of how mispronunciations and the ensuing brush off or joke by the offender deeply affected a student. I don’t believe, and certainly hope, this has ever happened here, but the article is an apt reminder of the impact, especially if the issue continues or creates embarrassment in a public setting.

Article: Why Finland Has the Best Schools

Is anyone else kind of tired hearing about how great the schools are in Finland. I’ll admit that there I are times I get ornery hearing about how great they are, but then I wonder how they continue to be at the top, and what “controllables” we have at our disposal that might help us close the gap with their success. Could we even do such a thing with our demographics, sheer size, and generally cynical view of American schools by many segments of our society? However, if there are pieces of the Finnish school experience that we could emulate here, why aren’t we doing it? Why not us? This is an Op-Ed article, and there are a few bits in here where I believe the author makes a great point. Pieces of the Finnish way are sorely needed for our neediest students.

A few reminders for the last few weeks and start of next year:

  1. School Picnic is on the last day of school (early release). Times are very unique from past early release days so please review email send last Friday with times. Teachers may want to bring clipboard to check off which students leave for home after the picnic.
  1. School Supply Lists 2016 K-5 will not exist. FITS has graciously offered to purchase all supplies for students in elementary. A letter will be sent home this week to parents explaining this wonderful donation as well as give the opportunity to support the cause. Some have asked about tissues – FITS will be bringing in more tissues for the remainder of the school year and has bulk ordered some for next year. PTO will continue the tissue drive in December.
  2. CARE team review process will be tonight after school in the conference room (location may change depending on amount of people.

Bus Rules

It is Wednesday, and that means it is time for our weekly rules review. This week we are reviewing the rules on the bus. Please remember that the rules on the bus are established for your safety and that they are the same for everyone. The bus driver is in charge and has rights and responsibilities granted to him/her by the school and by the State of Wisconsin.

1) Obey the driver at all times.

2) All passengers must stay seated at all times, when the bus is in motion and when it is stopped or parked.

3) Keep all hands, feet and personal objects to yourself and within the seat. The aisle must remain clear. That is the law.

4) Level 2 voices, that means talking to people seated within one seat of you. Level 0 voices are required by law when approaching a railroad crossing. In addition, use only school-appropriate language.

5) Food and gum are not to be eaten, chewed or consumed during the ride. If you have food with you, it is to stay in your backpack, bag etc.

6) Following the Golden Rule, that is treating other people how you want to be treated, even when you are on the bus, will also contribute to an emotionally safe ride for everyone.

Notes from Hugh

Greetings Folks,

The UWEC Musical Extravaganza has ended for the Gaston’s after another amazing night in Eau Claire for the Singing Statesmen 50th Anniversary Gala. All I can say is Wow. Oh, and I’m also exhausted. What a great four weeks.

Speaking of exhausted, I wonder if some of you might be feeling the same after a weekend spent outside in this gorgeous weather (and some of you thought I was going to refer to the end of the school year – well I think some are exhausted from getting close to that too). This seemed to be an ideal weekend for the usual spring yard work and if one had projects to tackle, Mother Nature surely cooperated. Looks like we are heading into a stretch of rain chances for the next few days.

I don’t have a lot for the bulletin this week due to the busy weekend. Be sure to check out the upcoming events sections in the school specific sections.

Have a wonderful week,

Hugh

­­EEP

There is an SLO Scoring coaching session scheduled for Tuesday at 4:00 with the EE Coaches. As one gathers their final data and prepares for the submission of the SLO document, please be sure to consult with colleagues, admins and the coaches for assistance if there are any questions.

Wisconsin Forward Exam

It feels good to wrap up this section of the bulletin for the year. All in all, the testing sessions all went extremely well and when there were some snafus, folks were quick to problem solve and assist. There are many people to thank for a successful run.

Out of the Office

I’ll be out Tuesday morning after the announcements until Noon or so at the SCC Principal meeting in Wautoma. I need to learn more about what I have gotten myself into (ending the sentence with a preposition was intended).

Upcoming Events: End-of-Year Recognition Rally

The Rec Rally is tentatively scheduled for Wed. Jun 1 from 8:15-9:45. This is what we have done for the last several years. A new wrinkle this year is that the school picnic is also on the last day. I don’t think this will impact our rally, but I just want folks to be aware that the agenda for that day will be compressed with a rally, picnic and early release.

Elementary School Focus

Elementary Recognition Rally

At the “special” meeting last Wednesday, the building management team did conduct some official business, namely, the dates and times of the second semester Recognition Rally. Here is what we have:

Date: Wed. May 25

Time: 5K-2 @ 8:15; 3-5 @ 2:00/2:15ish (I want to coordinate with Scott Georgeson first)

Location: SH Cafeteria

Duration: 30-40 minutes

When one took into account the trips, recently announced early release days, and the short last week, this was the best date and time that we could determine. If there are any conflicts that the group did not foresee or remember, please let me know ASAP.

Weekly Resources

Article: Why Social and Emotional Skills Are Vital to Keep At-Risk Students on Track

The best introduction to this article comes from the opening paragraph:

Academic learning is usually in the spotlight at school, but teaching elementary-age students “soft” skills like self-control and social skills might help in keeping at-risk kids out of criminal trouble in the future, a study finds.

Duke University researchers looked at a program called Fast Track, which was started in the early 1990s for children who were identified by their teachers and parents to be at high risk for developing aggressive behavioral problems.

There are very few schools out there that do not struggle with this in some way, and Fast Track has some research supporting the efficacy of this program. Whether one goes all in on a full adoption or uses pieces to fit an existing situation, we know we need some help with students who struggle in these areas.

http://ww2.kqed.org/mindshift/2015/12/17/why-emotional-intelligence-is-vital-to-keep-students-on-track/

Notes from Mike

When it comes to success in the classroom, character matters just as much as, and perhaps more so than, a student’s individual intelligence. But, what traits are important for educators to focus on and why? Lately, it seems to be grit and perseverance.

Please read over the following article from the web that will help you to gain some perspective on why these factors can help students succeed academically. The article is a Q and A with Scott Seider, an assistant professor at the School of Education from Boston University whose research focuses on the civic and character development of adolescents and emerging adults.

He is also the author of Character Compass: How Powerful School Culture Can Point Students Toward Success, which won the American Educational Research Association’s outstanding book award in moral development and education.

Notes from Julie

Hard to believe we have less than four weeks of school for 15-16! During this time, we often find student excitement is high and staff energy slightly lower than demand; although I felt the outing last Wednesday was exactly what we needed to reboot! Thank you everyone for taking time to enjoy each other’s company and unwind.

As we look to begin the closeout process of the 2015-16 school year, we often review processes in order to best prepare for the following school year with necessary improvements. One area we are looking for staff input is that of the CARE process. In the near future a survey, similar to the one put out last year, will be sent to everyone to continue our efforts in supporting student individual needs. Then we invite anyone interested in reviewing the data and discussing additional supports needed. If anyone would like to join us to discuss the CARE process, please join us on Monday May 16th from 3:30-4:30 in the conference room (depending on the number of participants we may move to another location in SH).
