Fleming Flyer-Off Campus Edition

May 15, 2020

A Note from Ms. Aldrich

I hope this newsletter finds everyone is doing well, and enjoying some sunshine. The 10 day forecast is finally showing some signs of 70 degree weather! My favorite temp!


Now that the Governor has relaxed restrictions a little bit, what are you doing to get outside? We were finally able to do some trail rides at Saxon Hill on our Mtn. Bikes. Also, we've been out for some walks around town! I've seen many students out enjoying the weather with their families. If you see me when you're out, feel free to say hi, or give me a wave! I love seeing you all!


Also, just a reminder that the playground at Fleming is still closed. I've seen people using the field when I have been in the building, hitting golf balls and running laps. There was also a small bike left on the playground that I've noticed over the past week. I would hate for it to get stolen, so if it belongs to you or a family member, please come and grab it.


If you would like to share photos with me on how you are enjoying the weather, please send them my way, and I will feature them in the next Fleming Flyer!

Placement Process

Fleming House Teachers 20/21

As you may know our school teaching staff will be reduced next year from the current 11 teachers to now 10 classroom teachers. We will have one less teacher on Team Mountaineer next year. The Mountaineer Team will be Mr. Guilmette teaching grade Four and Ms. Downing teaching grade five. They will continue to teach both of these two graded classes next year. Mrs. Young’s class will need to be distributed through the placement process in the five fifth grade classrooms next year. Mrs. Young was working under a one year contract that ends at the end of this school year.

Team Synergy Fourth Grade Teachers will be Mrs. Osborne and Mrs. Guntulis and fifth Grade Teachers will reunite Mrs. Lemnah and Mr. Kenny as teaching partners.

Team Endeavor will be Ms. Songer and Mrs. Hopper as Fourth Grade Teachers and Ms. Lee and Mrs. Coviello as fifth Grade partner teachers. Ms. Lee is very pleased to be following legacy of veteran educator Mrs. Auch as who is retiring at the end of the school year.

We would like to acknowledge and thank three wonderful long term teacher subs who will be leaving Fleming in June. WE greatly appreciate your exemplary work Mrs, Young, Ms. Crowther’s, and Mrs. Ailing and wish you all the best as your continue your career in education.

Hello Fleming Families!


Parents - this one is for you. My friends on the Fleming staff want to extend their deep appreciation for your kindness during Staff Appreciation Week - your cards, posts, lawn signs and chalk drawings from your children certainly brightened our week!


We want you to know how much we appreciate YOU! Distance Learning is not an easy thing to transition to, but you have all risen to the challenge. You may not think you have, but trust me, you are doing a great job.


Thank you for guiding your kids through their work.


Thank you for keeping a watchful eye while they are on their Zooms and Google Meets.


Thank you for ensuring that they balance work and outside time - that is so important.


Most of all, thank you for being there for our students when we have to be so far away.


It means the world to us that you support their learning. You are truly Fleming Falcons demonstrating our fundamentals: Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Responsible.


Thank you.


Big picture

Equity

The distance learning lessons and activities assigned to students makes it necessary for each student to have technology resources and internet access. Please contact principal Ryan if your student does not have a computer or have a way to access learning online via the internet.We are also concerned for families and students with food insecurity challenges. Hunger is a basic need that must be met before the engagement of learning. How might we help?

Activities for Kids

Different activities to do outside!

Hello from Ms. Speranza

Here is a link for some Distance Learning Resources for Students and Parents on Library Site- https://www.ewsd.org/Page/7741 This link will be shared with families along with a district library newsletter throughout phase 2.

Change of Residence Notice

Please let the school office know by emailing jialdrich@ewsd.org, if there is a change in residency for you or your student. This information will be helpful to teachers who are preparing lessons for all the students enrolled in their classrooms on March 18th. Placement process for next year will begin soon. It will be especially helpful to know of any student who will not be attending Fleming or transitioning to middle school at ADL in August. Thank you!

School Playground Closed

Buildings and Grounds Covid-19 Safety considerations have caused us to make our school playground equipment off limits. The playground is taped off and closed for use until access is reestablished following pandemic safety protocols.
