Oatville Elementary Named Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School.

Capturing Kids' Hearts

Oatville Elementary School has once again been recognized by the Flippen Group to receive a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase SchoolsTM award for the 2018-2019 school year.

Through the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards, the Flippen Group recognizes and celebrates campuses that go the extra mile each day, building an environment where students and staff feel safe and connected. Capturing Kids’ Hearts campuses across the country were considered for these awards based on the following criteria: 1) nomination based on observation by Flippen Group personnel, 2) level of implementation of Capturing Kids’ Hearts processes by all staff as measured by online surveys, and 3) data demonstrating that Capturing Kids’ Hearts has made a significant improvement in attendance, discipline, climate/culture, or academics.

A Flippen Group team visited each nominated campus to gather additional quantitative and qualitative data, and to interview students, teachers, administrators, and parents. They used a matrix of key measurements to gather information during the campus walk-through. Finally, an additional survey was conducted to collect feedback regarding the perceived climate and culture of the campus and its conduciveness to learning. Following this visit, the selection team reviewed all accumulated data and selected the campuses to receive the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards.

 

Now you can check your child's progress in Accelerated Reader and Accelerated Math from home. Renaissance Learning has released a Home Connect program. Follow this link and use the same log in information your child uses at school.

Kansas regulations now require that we provide all parents with notice of policies regarding Emergency Safety Interventions ("ESI''). The State of Kansas policy is available on our website and in our student handbooks. In addition, we will provide a copy of the policy at any time upon request.

Latchkey before school is provided through the Haysville Activity Center (HAC). For information to sign up your child for morning latchkey or for drop in care for your kids on days in which school is out.

Call the school if you are interested in becoming a teacher helper, tutor, field trip monitor, etc. The students need YOU!

Literacy First

April/May Update

Summer reading loss refers to the decline in children's reading development that can occur during summer vacation times when children are away from the classroom and not participating in formal literacy programs (Allington & McGill-Franzen, 2003). The reality of significant sum-mer reading loss has been well documented in a variety of studies in student achievement. Of all the activities in which children engage outside of school, time spent actually reading is the best predictor of reading achievement. The more students read, the better readers they become (Allington, 2006; Anderson, Wilson, & Fielding, 1988). So, looking for exciting and interesting books and reading materials for your child will be beneficial and fun!

Here are a few ideas for encouraging your students to read this summer:

Daily routines provide reading opportunities. Cooking, using the phone book, looking for in-formation on the internet, reading directions for using a new gadget, or reading a bro-chure or article about a vacation destination are all ways to provide authentic reading experiences.
Create a positive attitude about reading so that your child sees it as a reward instead of a punishment. Model how to use reading to learn about hobbies or interests. Read togeth-er and share about what you have read.
Books and other reading materials can be made available during transition times. Children can read on the way to a destination, or while waiting for an appointment.
Make regular visits to the library and allow your child to explore different reading materi-als. Librarians can offer suggestions that might be a good match for a child's interests and reading level. And be sure to check out the summer reading activities for children that are offered through many libraries.
Keep in mind that reading books that seem slightly below a child's reading level or books that have become "old favorites" can help a developing reader to build confidence and fluency.

Each month I will post information regarding literacy strategies or skills that might be helpful for you and your child at home. If you have any questions about Literacy First or other academic areas, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, call me at 554-2290, email mhunt@usd261.com, or check out the official website: www.literacyfirst.com
