November, 2017 Newsletter

Dear KG Parents,

It hardly seems possible to already have over two months of school completed at this time. The month of November brings on colder temperatures, the end of daylight savings time, and parent-teacher conferences. Due to the success experienced with our sign-up process at the junior high last year using PTC Wizard, all parents will need to schedule a specific time with their child(ren)’s teachers this year for conferences. Conferences will last ten minutes per session which will allow parents to see multiple teachers during either day. Parents will create a login to schedule times using the PTC Wizard online system. You will be able to view each teacher’s availability, including the exploratory and PE teachers, and select the times to create your own schedule to visit your child’s teachers. A handout with instructions will be sent home, is included in this newsletter, and will be available on our website. If you do not have internet access, please contact your child’s teachers directly to schedule your time. The link to access the PTC Wizard is below:

Once you have created your schedule, the program will sync with your calendar and save the appointments into your mobile device. We look forward to having another strong turnout for conferences on Monday, November 20th, 12:30 pm - 8:00 pm, and Tuesday, November 21st, 8:30 am - 3:00 pm. Students will receive their first trimester report cards on Friday, November 17th for you to review before meeting with the teachers.


At KG, we are working with students to develop a “Growth Mindset”. We believe that all students can improve and grow, and it is our job as educators to ensure they do. Students are developing individual growth goals for the content areas of reading and math. For those that meet their goals, we will be having an assembly to celebrate their accomplishments on Friday, February 2. This will replace our traditional honor roll assemblies during the year. There will be no change to our Awards Night and special awards at the 8th grade commencement ceremony. Our hope is that each student will meet the growth targets they set for themselves. They will be setting targets again for the end of the year in January in preparation for the final celebration on the last day of school.


With the change in daylight savings time approaching, I am always reminded of the change in the seasons as well. The fall weather is always unpredictable but cool mornings and evenings are guaranteed. Please make sure your child has sufficient clothing in the morning as they come to school and if they walk home after a club or activity. Dressing in layers is the best way to combat the changes in temperature during this season. Stay warm and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.


Sincerely,


John R. Jennings II

Health

During this time of year we tend to see a higher incidence of strep throat, respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses. Flu viruses are thought to spread mainly from person to person through droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze, or talk. Flu viruses also may spread when people touch something with flu virus on it and then touch their mouth, eyes, or nose. Many other viruses spread these ways too. To maintain a healthy school environment we encourage D91 families to practice Everyday Preventative measures such as:


  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

  • If you or your child gets sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you (or your child) stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. The fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.

  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.

  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.


In addition to everyday preventative measures, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends for children to get a seasonal influenza vaccine each year. Flu vaccination is recommended for all children aged 6 months and older. The week of December 6-12 is National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW), which is a national observance that was established to highlight the importance of continuing influenza vaccination. Making healthy choices can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others.

As always, please remember any medication needs a medication authorization form (which is available in the office and online) on file in the nurse’s office and the medication must be in it’s original container. Please contact me with any changes in your student’s medications or the development of any health concerns during the school year. It is important that your student’s health record is kept current.

Finally, with the cold winter weather, PLEASE send students to school with appropriate outerwear including coats, hats, and gloves/mittens. Have a safe and healthy winter.

Guidance

We are enjoying a good start to this school year in Guidance classes. We have discussed what integrity means, why it is important, and ways we can show integrity. We have also been practicing self-control. The teachers and I are working together to help students practice using self-control in various situations at school. An essential part of practicing and maintaining self control is becoming aware of our emotions and knowing how to remain calm even in difficult situations. We are beginning to talk about managing our feelings and recognizing when our emotions are becoming stronger. We will also discuss strategies that we can use to maintain emotional control. Please initiate conversations about self-control and managing emotions at home as well to help our children develop and strengthen these important skills.


October is also “Bullying Prevention Month,” and we have been addressing the topic of bullying (what it is and what to do) through discussion and activities as well as encouraging positive interactions. Junior high students from Ms. Dickson’s accelerated ELA class prepared presentations and activities about bullying and kindness/respect for all grade levels, and shared their presentations with the students. These presentations and positive messages were very well received by fourth and fifth grade students.


If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the guidance program, please contact me. I would love to hear from you! I would also encourage you to visit my webpage to find out more about the Guidance program and other helpful information.

4th Grade

The month of November will be a month to look forward to. Parent Teacher Conferences are scheduled for November 20 and 21.


On an academic note, classes are well into reading our first novel study, On My Honor. In Language we have learned about complete and simple predicates, compound subjects and predicates, and simple and compound sentences. In Social Science, we will soon begin learning in greater detail about our nation’s government and economy. Our students have been working hard in Science, where we have been learning about plants, animals, and ecosystems. Our Math series is focusing on multiplication and division. Be sure to study those facts.


Remember, homework is an extension of the school day and is meant to help your child practice skills learned at school. It is very important to establish a good homework routine. Please check your child’s Home folder and agenda each night, as well as checking each homework assignment to make sure it is done correctly. Also, please work with your child in making sure those assignments are returned when they are due.


On behalf of the fourth grade teachers, Happy Thanksgiving!

6th Grade Math

In mathematics, students are have started our second unit on number operations. We learned how to multiply and divide fractions and mixed numbers, and how to apply these operations to real world situations. November continues operations with decimals. Students will learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals WITHOUT a calculator. We will be exploring various ways to find the solution mentally. Our goal for all students in sixth grade is to develop a stronger number sense.


Assignments will be given out of the text on working and lesson days with the final day of using the Personal Math Trainer to complete an online checkpoint. Text assignments should be completed on a daily basis, failure to do so means that the student is unprepared for class. Students have math homework on a daily basis and should be bringing their Go Math books home to complete them.


Did you know that all students have the opportunity to retake an assessment to attempt for greater points? We encourage all students to take advantage of this opportunity when scoring anything under 100% on an assessment. All a student needs to do is sign up for a designated retake time and day, study the concepts more from home using our excellent Go Math resources, and be ready to do their best the second time around. Ask your child to login to their account and show you how to access the additional practice features.


How can I help my child with math at home?

  • Encourage your child to solve everyday problems involving numbers.

  • Talk about the importance of math and how it is used in daily life.

  • Review your child’s homework and ask them to explain how they arrived at their solutions to problems.

  • View the Math on The Spot videos with your child for concepts or skills he or she may be having difficulty with.

  • Talk with your child’s teacher about any questions you have about the math your child is learning.

6th Grade ELA

Vocabulary study continues for the sixth graders. They are using the Chromebooks to access and complete the activities for the Vocabulary Workshop program. Assignments are completed regularly with this program. If your child is absent, or doesn’t finish an assignment in class, he or she can access the program at home. Having a set of headphones/earbuds at school is highly suggested in order for your child to fully utilize all components of the program. Please have your child show you the various activities that are available with this program. Many of these activities can help your child prepare for the unit tests.


Our grammar lessons will concentrate on understanding the various types and correct uses of pronouns. Finally, our reading selections will be nonfiction pieces from our Literature texts.


Lastly, parent-teacher conferences will be held on November 20, 2017, and

November 21, 2017. Please use the online registration system to schedule conferences with your child’s teachers.

“Bah! Humbug!” is what Scrooge retorted grumpily to his nephew Fred when Scrooge was asked about his Christmas spirit. You won’t hear any seventh grade students repeating this phrase in the Kelvin Grove halls. Or will you?


Students will be reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens in a drama format. We will be focusing on plot, sequencing, tone, and expression. Interpreting and visualizing stage directions will be covered as well. To deepen our study of A Christmas Carol, we will be going to the Drury Lane Theater in Oakbrook on Friday, December 8, 2017, to see a live rendition of the play. After seeing the play, we will compare and contrast the written drama with the theatrical production as we focus on the symbolism present within the text and how it was portrayed in the play.


Seventh grade students will also begin a unit on argumentative writing. This type of writing will be introduced through many different text examples and sample book reviews. Your child will then write his/her own book review to demonstrate understanding.


Finally, Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on Monday, November 20, 2017, from 12:30-4:00 and 5:30-8:00 and on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, from 8:30-11:30 and 12:30-3:00.

Eighth grade students have been busy this month! Students have been working hard this quarter and have completed an essay comparing and contrasting elements from a story with a movie. Students also continue to complete vocabulary lessons and grammar reviews. Keeping with a Halloween theme, 8th grade students have worked on a spooky Edgar Allan Poe unit focusing on mood and tone. Students annotated “The Tell-Tale Heart”, “The Cask of Amontillado”, and “Annabelle Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe in order to develop their understanding of complex literary works and vocabulary.

In the month of November, students will begin working on their first novel of the year, To Kill a Mockingbird. Watch my website with any further announcements.

Parent Teacher conferences are coming up in November. Like last year, we are having parents schedule times through PTC Wizard. Be on the lookout for the link on my website and the D91 website to sign up for conference times.
