Concord Elementary School

February 19, 2023 : Week 26

A Note from Mr. Moeckel

Concord Families,

We are excited to share a little something extra at parent-teacher conferences this spring. Our students and staff have been spending time celebrating Black History Month. In this celebration, students have been learning and researching about the wonderful achievements, honors, and contruibtions black Americans have made to our ever evolving society. One outcome in this work was to create a school-wide, student made museum. So, at confernces this year, we invite our families to spend a few moments walking the halls of Concord. Our guests will enjoy murals, researched facts, art projects and more.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

New K-5 social and emotional screeners for 2022-23

In the fall, Lindbergh Schools administered a universal social-emotional learning (SEL) screening survey to all elementary school students. This March, we will administer the 2nd and final screening survey for the 22-23 school year.

The district is introducing new SEL screening tools for the 2022-23 school year that will serve two purposes:

  1. They will help the district to evaluate the effectiveness of district-level mental health and social and emotional programming.

  2. They will identify areas of strengths and needs for individual students in grades K-5.

SEL screening is not new to Lindbergh. In previous years, the district has administered anonymous surveys that provided administrators with an overall view of student experiences within our schools. With this new screening tool, parents will have access to individual students' results, and it will also equip teachers to better identify students who may be in need of additional support in the areas of academic, emotional, and social skills.

Social, Academic, and Emotional Behavior Risk Screening (SAEBRS)

There are two components to the K-5 SAEBRS tool:

  1. Teacher observation risk-rating scale (referred to as SAEBRS)

  2. Student-rater screening tool (referred to as mySAEBRS).

SAEBRS is a 19-item rating scale completed by the classroom teacher and based on teacher observations. It is used to help monitor student strengths and areas of concern. This will be completed by all teachers in grades K-5.

mySAEBRS is a 20-item student-rater screening tool. Students respond to computer-based questions aligned to social, academic, and emotional behaviors. This will be administered only in grades 3-5.

Both SAEBRS and mySAEBRS screen for strengths and areas of concern aligned to the following domains:

  • Social Development: Students’ ability to understand social norms, empathize, and understand the perspectives of others.

  • Academic Development: Skills necessary for students to be prepared for, participate in and benefit from academic instruction.

  • Emotional Development: Students’ ability to regulate internal states, adapt to change and respond to stressful or challenging events.

This document includes sample screening questions on the mySAEBRS and SAEBRs screening tools.

SAEBRS Questions

For more information regarding the importance of SEL screening and how to opt out of SEL screening, click here. If you completed an opt out form in the fall, you will not need to complete one for the spring. If you are new to the district, the opt-out form is open until February 24th.

Career and Technical Education Perceptions Survey

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Office of College and Career Readiness is seeking information from community members about general perceptions of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. CTE programs in Missouri schools encompass a variety of educational programs and pathways, including programs in Agriculture; Business and Marketing; Health Sciences; Family and Consumer Sciences; Skilled Technical Sciences (e.g. Automotive Repair, Collision Repair Computer Sciences, Construction, Law Enforcement, Machining, and Welding); and Project Lead the Way (PLTW).

This information is being collected by the DESE’s CTE Advisory Council and will be used to help guide the group in their decision making processes. Responses will be kept confidential and will be aggregated with other responses to help the council better understand how students, parents, business leaders, and educators see CTE in Missouri.

Winter Weather Update for Families

As colder weather approaches, now is a good time to remind families and staff how we prepare for potential school closures that can result from snow, ice, or other severe weather events.

In the event of inclement weather, we will decide to close school based on a number of factors, including student safety, bus transportation, road conditions and wind chill temperature. When possible, the decision to close school is made by 10 p.m. the night before. However, if the decision cannot be made by 10 p.m., then a decision will be made between 5 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. the next morning.

If the decision is made to cancel school, all families and staff will receive a phone call, text message and email notification.
