Principal’s Newsletter for May 2015  

                I want to thank all of the families and teachers who supported our Spring Clean Up at Snow School on Sunday, April 26, 2015. We pulled thousands of weeds and covered large areas of our front entrance and parking lots with mulch. This was a huge team effort that was led by our amazing Dad’s Club! I want to thank all of the families who came and worked hard. This positive activity went well because we all worked together as a team.

                Our Jump Rope for Heart fund-raiser was a gigantic success this year! Our school raised $1,795 for the American Heart Association, which is about $1000 more than last year. Snow School is such a giving community, so thank you for your donations.

 

                National Bike and Walk to School Day is Wednesday, May 6. We encourage children and families to walk or bicycle to school. Let’s get our hearts pumping!

 

                Our School Safety & Climate Committee met in April and discussed many upcoming events and upgrades to our school. Snow School will continue to practice evacuation drills, secure the perimeter drills, and lockdowns. Additionally, we have received a grant to upgrade some of the security features in the school. We will have new and improved cameras installed at the front entrance and throughout the school. Many of our windows will be treated with a special film to improve security and many of our blinds will be replaced. These upgrades are expected to be completed by Fall 2015.

 

We are looking for families to help to plan summer reading initiatives and fun family activities that will motivate children to read over the summer. Our school data shows that many children lose reading and math skills over the summer, so we want to discuss creative ways to encourage children to keep up their studies and skills over the summer. If you have any ideas, please contact your child’s teacher or me at gaudreauj@mpsct.org or 860-347-2579. I would like to discuss some of your creative ideas at the next PTO meeting on May 12, 2015, at 6:30 pm.

 

Here are some activities we have done in the past:

 

Book Swaps                                 Campfires                                        


Summer Field Day                      Music Performances                 


Story-tellers                                 Reading to Dogs

Connecticut State Department of Education Smarter Balanced Portal

The CSDE Smarter Balanced Assessment Portal is now available. It will house all test administration resources for Test Coordinators, Test Administrators, Technology Coordinators, as well as for parents and families. The portal also displays Recent Annoucements and allows users to register for E-mail Alerts when new resources and announcements are added to the portal.  The 2014 Field Test Portal will not be functioning for the operational test so it should not be utilized anymore.


High School Students Working with Preschool

At Middletown High School a Family & Consumer Science class is offered that allows high school students to work with preschoolers. For the class, the students are planning lessons that are appropriate for children 3-5 years old. From the end of October to June, the students will be running the preschool program. If you need any other information please feel free to email Kristen at kujawskik@mpsct.org.
