Earthquake Safety

NCLB Complaint Resolution Procedure

A note from the principal...


Please continue to dress your child appropriately for our changing weather.  In order to benefit from exercise and fresh air, we will continue to have outside recesses unless there is precipitation or temperatures fall to 15 degrees.  Once we transition from air conditioning to the heating system in our building, we can’t access air conditioning, so consider dressing your child in layers if the weather is fairly warm.
Remember, school starts at 8:30 a.m. and dismisses at 3:35 p.m.  Students arriving after 8:30 a.m. or leaving before 3:35 p.m. are counted absent for part of the day, regardless of the reasons.  Students that arrive after 8:40 a.m. will wait by office until Rooster Reading time ends at 9:05 a.m. in order to protect that instructional time.
THANK YOU for attending parent/teacher conferences the week of Oct. 27.  Please take time to complete the online survey that will be emailed by the district after your conference.

Fall Harvest Competition, sponsored by the Pleasant Hill Bank, will be from Nov. 3-7.  All schools in the district will be collecting donations of nonperishable food items for our Local Food Pantry.  The school with the most food items donated will win a $500 prize donation from the bank to the local charity/organization of choice.  Let’s help our community in need this season.

Please keep collecting Box Tops for Education!  General Mills Box Tops are found on lots of products and are easy to cut out.  Send in with your child, or drop off at the Primary School office.  Our most recent purchases with Box Tops have been a rack of folding chairs, a projector and Apple TV for the gym, and “Spark!” PE curriculum materials.  This year, we’re hoping to purchase more iPads for teacher and student use.  Every little box top helps!

Ask your child about:  Cell Phone Sally, the 9-1-1 safety program sponsored by the Mid-America Regional Council, coming to our school on Nov. 4.

 Young readers need to be shown what to try or do after they “sound out” the words.  Many times after they try to sound it out, young readers will just go on to the next word.  All of the word work has made them forget what the sentence was about.  Here are some things that you can tell them to do to get the story back in their mind:
 “Go back and REREAD.”
“Does that make sense?  Try that again.”
“You said, (put in what the reader said).  Did that make sense?”
“Look for something in the picture that could help you.”
“Read it again and say the first sound (of the tricky word)”.
Cover the word and ask, “What word would make sense?” 
If the reader says a word that doesn't sound right, you can say:
“Does that sound right?”
“Try that again and think what word would sound right.”
All of these will get the reader to thinking about the story and help with the child’s comprehension of the story.  These also help the child to become more fluent.
