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

The Literacy First process is the heart of our instructional system. Literacy First is a professional development program that builds an understanding of the role literacy plays in academic achievement and reinforces the skills needed to address student performance challenges in reading comprehension and the content areas. In using the Literacy First approach teachers are better able to meet student needs through concentrated and direct reading instruction. Instruction is assessment driven and directed according to individual student needs. In turn, students find more success and assurance in reading that carries across the curriculum.

We have Literacy First Consultants in each building. 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
