  • December 1, 2018 : Lunchroom Tips
    To help make your child's lunch time experience easier, I suggest the following tips. 1. Pack your child's lunch with extra napkins or paper towels. Students are expected to clean up their area at the tables. Extra napkins or paper towels can help prevent messes or clean them up quicker! 2. Pack a drink in your child's lunch. Some children rely on the water machine at school to purchase a bottle. Unfortunately, the machine does not provide change, or sometimes does not take a particular bill or coin. To ease frustration, pack a drink in their lunch. 3. Pack food items that your child is able to open. For example, some Gogurt tubes, string cheese, or fruit cups can be tough. Be sure to show your child how to open them! Scissors are not available in the lunchroom. 4. Provide a spoon or straw if needed for a particular item. We do not have extras in the lunchroom. As a lunchroom supervisor, these are some of the observations I have made. I just wanted to share them with everybody!
  • December 1, 2018 : Reassessment Procedures for Mrs. Zitkus
    If a student receives a 69% or lower on a summative, then the student will automatically take a reassessment. There is no option. If a child scores a 70% or higher on a reassessment, then the student can choose to take a reassessment. **Reassessments will not be offered the last week of each quarter.** The procedures for a reassessment are ... 1. Tell Mrs. Zitkus you would like to take a reassessment within one week of original testing date. Mrs. Zitkus will distribute to student a Reflection Form. 2. Student will use their original summative to thoughtfully and accurately complete a reflection. The Reflection Form should display a high quality of effort to make corrections and provide detailed feedback from their perspective. Parents will sign the Reflection Form too. 3. Return the original summative and Reflection Form with parent signature to Mrs. Zitkus. 4. After reviewing completed Reflection Form, Mrs. Zitkus will set a reassessment date. Note ... the reassessment date will not be the same day as turning in the Reflection Form. 5. Reassessments will be taken during the lunch hour. Students will report to our Reassessment Room on given date with their lunch, pencil, and chapter book.
  • December 1, 2018 : Homework Tips for Parents
    Your child will be receiving homework this year. I would like your support by asking you to help your child, but do not do it for him or her. I need to see your child's best work. There are some things you can do to encourage your child to finish the homework. Tip #1 > Establish a time and place where homework is to be done. Make sure the table or desk is in a well-lighted area and clear of daily clutter. Be consistent with the time frame; whether it is directly after school, after snack time, or after dinner. Stick to the same time each day. Tip#2 > Make sure your child understands all assignments. If needed, work through the first question or problem together. Tip #3 > Each day ask whether there is any homework. Even when there isn't any, the simple act of asking conveys that you consider homework to be an important responsibility. Tip #4 > Praise your child for homework efforts!
