Week At A Glance

October 1 - 8, 2017

HSE 21 Corner- Repeat of last week- Please review the SAMR model!

Worksheets, workbooks, etc . We were reminded of the importance of looking critically at what role these tools play in an HSE 21 learning environment during one of our recent intermediate principals' walk-through discussions. What jumped out to us was a comment about uploading a worksheet into Canvas so students could complete it using HSE 21 technology! That isn't HSE 21, it's just substituting how a worksheet is completed! Included here is the visual representation of our work with the SAMR model that we explored a couple of years ago. Take a moment to review as you have the time! Thanks!!!

From the Energy Department

As the weather cools, people are more inclined to open windows. It does feel great outside, but opening windows can open up an assortment of problems. Would you please share this with your staff and ask that they keep their windows closed.

1)Indoor air quality risk: Open windows can cause students with allergies or asthma to have reactions. Our HVAC syst ems use MERV rated filters to remove these allergens before outside air reaches our students.

2) Intruder threats: Open windows are possible entry points for intruders.

3) Humidity control: Our HVAC systems are designed to maintain humidity at a designated set point. If you open a window, you are allowing moist outside air to enter the building before it can be conditioned by the HVAC system.

4) Help out your neighbor: Our classrooms are linked together. The HVAC system looks at all the classrooms in a pod and makes corrections based on the collective data from the pod. If someone in your pod opens a window, it can trigger the HVAC system to come on or not to run (depending on the outside air). The window may make your room feel more comfortable but it could be at the cost of your neighbors’ comfort.

5) Energy, environment, and economics: The HVAC system in your building is running. If you open your window, then you are letting the cool air outside. Would you open the windows at your house if your AC were running?

For these five reasons, I am asking you to keep your windows shut. It will help keep our students healthy, safe, comfortable, and reduce energy waste.

Thank you for your help and support!

Volunteer breakfast monitoring :)

Since we no longer have an 8 hour IA at FCI, we don't have someone to daily cover arrival/breakfast beginning at 7:00am. (Generally there is an individual who can come to the cafeteria by 7:20am to relieve a volunteer.) Some staff have offered to assist, and therefore we decided to put out a calendar for all who may want to volunteer.

This is a great chance to greet students and possibly see them in a different setting outside of the classroom to connect with them. Please consider this opportunity and sign up if you are interested. No pressure...remember this is voluntary! Thanks to those who have already helped out!! :D

Celebrating Culture

Looking for a way to connect with others globally and raise cultural awareness amongst your students? Beginning Oct. 2, over a million students across the world will take part in the Global Read Aloud. There are a few book options, but my recommendation for 2017 is A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park.

A couple of my classes are participating, and it is not too late to join in the fun. You can determine how much time you want to dedicate and how in depth you want to go. If you can spare 10 minutes a day, you can make it work! Let me know if you would like more information or check out:
