Panther Proud: November 2021
I'd like to start by congratulating our students on a successful first marking period! We have some amazingly talented youth in our schools who are academic rock stars, Kudos to our parents for raising amazing children and a special congrats to our students for all their hard work and efforts, CONGRATS!!!
You may have heard in the media regarding some of the latest benchmarks that have come down from the state, including Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), and Culturally Responsive-Sustaining (CR-S) and we felt it important to share this information so you are better informed. Ultimately, we at S-VE schools want to ensure a safe, and welcoming environment for all. We also want to provide rigorous curriculum so our standards are high, and our students are career and college ready upon graduation.
We are all Panther Proud of how well many of our sports teams did in wrapping up their season and moving on to post season competitions. Again, amazing job!
As always, please reach out to me through firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments, questions, concerns, or kudos.

The Elementary School utilizes the Mood Meter to increase student engagement, attendance, and academic importance, establish quality relationships, enhance decision making, decrease stress and anxiety, and increase health and wellbeing. The Mood Meter, developed by Dr. Marc Brackett, is used in RULER, which is an evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning. The Mood Meter is used to develop greater insight in people's emotional lives, develops emotional vocabulary, and assists in selecting strategies to help regulate feelings.
• Recognizing emotions in oneself and others
• Understanding the causes and consequences of emotions
• Labeling emotions with nuanced vocabulary
• Expressing emotions in accordance with cultural norms and social context
• Regulating emotions with helpful strategies
We want to share with you some information we have received from New York State Education Department (NYSED) regarding some overarching benchmarks so you can better understand these concepts, and ask questions of our leaders to gain a deeper understanding. The basic premise is that every child deserves a welcoming environment, and that is the foundation of S-VE. These overarching benchmarks will help us in continuing our journey to accomplish these goals.

Digital Citizenship Newsletter
Digital Equity Survey
In our efforts to continue to improve access to technology resources, continuing to collect accurate data regarding digital access for our students will greatly help our educators to better serve our students and families. In order to accomplish this, the New York State Education Department is asking parents or guardians to complete a Digital Equity survey (for each student in the family) in grades Kindergarten – Grade 12. This survey will provide information on student access to devices and internet access in their places of residence. Although you may have completed this for us in the past, this information provided to the state will assist in securing financial resources to address limited digital access. We strongly encourage parents and guardians to help us by completing this brief 12 question Digital Equity Survey by Friday, November 5th to fulfill the requirement by New York State Education Department.
