Hazeldale Hawk

School Newsletter — February 5th, 2020

Note from the Principal

Dear Hazeldale Families,


As an authorized International Baccalaureate School we continue our monthly focus on a different Learner Profile Attribute.


The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. http://www.ibo.org/programmes/primary-years-programme/


January's attribute was focused on being Principled.


Principled: We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice, and with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.


February’s attribute is focused on being a Communicator.


Communicator: We express ourselves confidently and creatively in more than one language and in many ways. We collaborate effectively, listening carefully to the perspectives of other individuals and groups.


Use the language above to ask your child questions or prompt conversation!

What you do at Night, on the Weekends, and on Vacation Can Make a World of Difference to Your Child's Academic Success: Practical Advice for Families from a Leading Literacy Expert Grades K-8

Dear Beaverton Parents and Community Members,


What you do at Night, on the Weekends, and on Vacation Can Make a World of Difference to Your Child's Academic Success: Practical Advice for Families from a Leading Literacy Expert Grades K-8


Join Dr. Mary Ehrenworth on Wednesday, February 12th at Springville K-8 to find out how parents can make a tremendous difference in their children's academic success, now, and as they mature. You'll learn about what you can do to help your children become more powerful readers, which helps them be more powerful students in every class. You'll find out more about what kinds of 'work' outside of school make a tremendous difference. You'll learn about different kinds of reading aloud and reading experiences that can add to your children's language acquisition and knowledge. And you'll learn about use of time, including the kinds of commitments, trips and family projects that can help students do better not only with reading but in science and social studies.


Dr. Ehrenworth is Senior Deputy Director of the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, a global literacy think tank at Columbia University. She has been an admissions officer at an Ivy League university. Dr. Ehrenworth is the author of dozens of books, including The Power of Grammar and the best-selling Pathways to the Common Core, and most recently, Essential Research Skills for Teens, Critical Literacy, and, forthcoming, The Civically-Engaged Classroom: Teaching in Times of Strife and Discord. Among her more recent articles in Educational Leadership are: Revisiting Reading Workshop: Autonomy, Liberation, and Love; Growing Extraordinary Writers; Why Argue? and Unlocking the Secrets of Complex Texts. She is also a parent of two children who are widely diverse learners.


Dr. Ehrenworth will be speaking at Springville K-8, starting at 6:30. There will be light refreshments and time to answer questions at the end. If you are interested in attending, please register here.


If you have any questions, please call Susan Ouellette at 503-356-4431.
