10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference After the Conference 9. Update your child. Talk to your child about what happened. It’s important to share anything positive that you and the teacher discussed. But it’s also important not to shy away from problems or challenges. If there are next steps, make sure your child knows what they are. 10. Follow up. If you and the teacher agreed on next steps, follow up in the next week or so to see how things are working out. It’s useful to have check-ins before the next conference. At each check-in, ask for an update, but also be ready to share what you’ve been doing on any action steps. Although parent-teacher conferences are short, they’re a good time to learn more about your child’s school experience. For more help, try out a parent-teacher conference survey to build understanding with your child’s teacher.

Save a few minutes at the end of the conference for next steps. Depending on what you’ve talked about, here’s what you might suggest: Staying in touch: “How can we keep talking about this? Could I get weekly feedback for the next month—maybe a quick email on Fridays?” In-class help: “We talked about giving my child more support in class. What should we look for in the coming weeks to decide if it’s working or not?” School services: “I’d like to meet with the school to talk about extra reading instruction. What information should we gather before that meeting?”

Getting ready for Parent-Teacher Conferences November 14, 1-4 and 5:30-7:30? 10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference At the Conference 6. Stay calm. It’s important to keep your emotions in check during the conference, even if your child is struggling with something. Taking a few deep breaths can help. Using a respectful tone will also help you and the teacher find solutions together for your child. At the same time, if you disagree with the teacher, be sure to speak up. If you don’t say something, the teacher may assume you don’t have concerns. 7. Ask the most important questions first. Remember that you only have a short time. Try to cover your most important questions and concerns first. (Use your list of questions, if you had time to make one.) But try not to worry if you don’t get to everything. You can still ask for a follow-up meeting with the teacher to discuss anything you couldn’t get to. And if you don’t understand something the teacher says, ask for an explanation.

10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference on November 14, 1-4 and 5:30-7:30 At the Conference 4. Arrive a few minutes early. Try to get there a few minutes early so you can find the classroom and not miss any of your time. If you’re early and waiting, check out the hallways where student work is posted to see what the class has been working on. 5. Skip the class overview (unless you need it). Teachers often begin the conference with some general class information. While this can be helpful, it takes up valuable conference time. If you already know this information, politely say something like: “I’ve been reading your newsletter. If it’s OK with you, can we spend more time on the questions I have about my child?”

10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference Before the Conference 3. Make a list of questions. Now that you’ve talked with your child and reviewed schoolwork, make a list of questions. If you’re stumped, use this list of questions to ask teachers. Think through anything you want to make sure the teacher knows. Are there specific things that helped your child thrive in school in the past? Have there been any big changes in your family or living situation? Are there holidays you’ll be away? Talk with other family members to make sure you cover everything. Once you have your list, put questions and concerns in order of importance, so you can cover the biggest things first. Use this parent-teacher conference worksheet to get organized.

New from the Saginaw ISD: The next Autism Parent Support Group meeting will be this Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 6:00pm at the Saginaw ISD Transitions Center. This will be a more traditional roundtable format where parents can discuss their questions, concerns and celebrations with one another in a parents-only setting. A flyer listing upcoming opportunities is also attached and you can RSVP for meetings here. A few notes: This year, informational sessions are offered by the Great Lakes Bay ABA Collaborative Network during the day, and parent discussion times and family outings will be held in the evenings (and possibly some Saturdays). The flyer for the informational sessions is attached. There is a wealth of information being offered, so please be sure to take a look and try to attend! We are looking into arranging some family "outings" throughout the year. The first of these is planned for December 2, 2019 at 6:00pm. The Family Holiday Jingle & Mingle will be a very low-key, sensory friendly gathering to celebrate the holiday season with our support group friends. Children are welcome, and we'll have some fun activities for them to enjoy.

10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference on November 14, 1-4 and 5:30-7:30. Most parent-teacher conferences only last 10 or 15 minutes. That’s not a lot of time to connect with your child’s teacher. But with a little preparation and planning, you can make the most of this time. Here are 10 tips that can help. Before the Conference 2. Talk with your child. Get a sense from your child about how school is going. What’s most and least enjoyable? Does your child feel unsure about school? Who does your child sit with at lunch? (For more ideas, see this list of questions to ask your child.) Ask your child if there’s anything you should talk to the teacher about. Mention that every family has a conference, so your child doesn’t worry about what this meeting means.

Here are some ideas, for today and the coming days, for how to make these valuable for you and your child. 10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference: 1) Before the Conference: Look over schoolwork. Take some time to look over your child’s homework, essays, reading logs, and other schoolwork. How does it look like your child is doing? Is the homework too easy or too hard? Does your child need help? Review report cards, too. What are your child’s grades like? You can also look over any emails or newsletter updates the teacher has sent.

More ideas for how to be more involved in your child's education: 3. Broaden your child's understanding of the world by visiting malls, museums, parks, zoos, universities, sports stadiums, theaters, transportation facilities, farms, and local landmarks. 4. Make learning relevant by encouraging activities that use what kids learn at school. Encourage kids to count money; make shopping lists; calculate costs, sales prices, and taxes; read menus and newspapers; and write letters.

SAFETY DRILLS Fire, tornado, and other emergency drills are held regularly to develop safety practices that will help students to move quickly in an orderly manner to designated safety areas during an emergency. Rules of safety are reviewed regularly and posted in each classroom. Students are required to be silent and shall comply with the directives of school officials during emergency drills. Each school shall conduct a minimum of five (5) fire drills, two (2) tornado drills, and three (3) lockdown drills each school year. During a drill or actual emergency, personal safety will depend upon the way in which students carry out regular procedures or modified instructions that the situation may dictate. FIRE DRILL = pulsing horn and flashing lights TORNADO DRILL = intermittent siren-like sound

Why Does Attendance Matter? Every school day counts in a child's academic life... A missed school day is a lost opportunity for students to learn. In this era of increased accountability for states, districts, and schools, the connection between student attendance and learning is being studied more than ever before. The primary rationale for focusing on attendance is the relationship between student attendance and student achievement. Teacher effectiveness is the strongest school-related determinant of student success, but chronic student absence reduces even the best teacher's ability to provide learning opportunities. Students who attend school regularly have been shown to achieve at higher levels than students who do not have regular attendance. This relationship between attendance and achievement may appear early in a child's school career. A recent study looking at young children found that absenteeism in kindergarten was associated with negative first grade outcomes such as greater absenteeism in subsequent years and lower achievement in reading, math, and general knowledge.

Extended Absences--Occasionally, a parent or guardian may decide it is important to remove the student from school. While the school does not approve of such absences, it will be responsive to family needs and wishes. Parents may request work a maximum of two (2) days in advance; however, teachers are not required to prepare detailed advance assignments or assist students who have prearranged absences. Please keep in mind the Saginaw County Truancy policy mentioned in previous posts when planning student absences from school.

What's going on? WEEKLY SCHOOL EVENTS NOTIFICATION One of our school district goals is to provide parents and students with complete and up to date information regarding school activities and events. This is accomplished in many ways. We post upcoming events on our school sign; we maintain a building Twitter and Facebook page; we post daily announcements to the middle school portion of the district app; we provide parents and students with e-mail access to staff; we provide parents and their designees secure access to their student(s) grades and attendance information via Skyward; we provide automated calls each day notifying parents of student absence; we staff our office each school day from 6:45 AM to 3:30 PM; and we provide regular calls/emails to parents detailing school events for the ensuing weeks using the district messaging system. This regular event notification is intended to be as comprehensive as possible at the time it is sent. Parents should still arrange for receipt of daily announcements to ensure that information is as up to date as possible.

Did you know?...Students who missed 2 or more days in September were significantly more likely to be chronically absent for the year. In fact, • Students who missed 2 to 4 days in September were 5 times more likely to be chronically absent than students who were absent fewer than 2 days • Students who missed more than 4 days were over 16 times as likely to be chronically absent than students who were absent fewer than 2 days This suggests that parents and schools need to pay attention to student attendance from the earliest days in September, and intervene to get students back on track quickly.

Ready to Ride the School Bus? School bus transportation is provided for all students living within the confines of the school district. This privilege may be denied for improper conduct while riding the bus. The length of this denial may vary from one day to the complete school year depending on the number of times reported and the seriousness of the misconduct. Students are not allowed to ride a different bus to another student’s home. Each driver reviews the basic rules and regulations regarding riding a bus with his/her students. He/she has authority to stop the bus to talk with a student who is not conducting himself/herself properly and to report the student to the bus supervisor and/or principal. Proper disciplinary action will be reported to parents or guardians. When your child remains after school or is required to serve a detention, transportation is the responsibility of the parents/guardians.

Saginaw County truancy policy requires us to report all absences, regardless of reason, to the Intermediate School District and to send written absence notifications to parents regularly. The county does not differentiate between excused absences and unexcused absences. We believe, and the court system supports, that students should be in school every day for their maximum academic potential to be realized. Please keep this in mind when planning your student’s day around things such as health professional appointments, family vacations, etc. We are required to report excessive (TEN OR MORE DAYS PER SEMESTER) student absences of any reason to the county truancy office for follow-up. We will contact parents/guardians by letter when your child has been absent four (4) and eight (8) times before contacting the truancy authorities.

Students are not permitted to ride a bus other than the bus to which they are assigned. Exceptions must be approved in advance by the transportation supervisor. When students are on the bus, they are under the supervision of the bus driver. In most cases, bus discipline problems can be handled by the bus driver. In the case of a written disciplinary referral, student bus problems will be investigated and handled by the transportation supervisor. Parents will be informed of any and all inappropriate student behavior on the bus. Parents are encouraged to discuss bus safety and appropriate behavior with her children before the beginning of the school year and regularly during the year. In the interest of the student safety, students are expected to observe the following rules: Choose a seat and sit in and immediately upon entering the bus. Do not stand in the interest or in the isles. Do not move from one state to another while on the bus. Keep all parts of the body and all objects inside the bus.

In the event of emergency stay on the bus and await instructions from the bus driver. Good behavior and behavior that will not distract the bus driver from operating the bus safely as required. Crowding, pushing, scuffling, and other needless commotion are grounds for disciplinary action. Do not open windows unless Directed to do so by the bus driver. Keep the bus neat and clean.

STUDENT MEDICATION Taking medication during school hours or during school-related activities is prohibited unless it is necessary for a student’s health and well-being. When a student’s licensed health care provider and parent/guardian believe that it is necessary for the student to take a medication during school hours or school-related activities, the parent/guardian must request that the school dispense the medication to the child by completing a student medical authorization form. The student must submit a completed school-issued medication form that explains what type of medication he/she is taking, proper dosage, and how often it should be given/taken. He/she should turn the form, along with prescription medications, into the office. The form must be signed by a doctor--this is true for prescription and non-prescription medications. Without a completed form, your child will be in violation of our district’s drug policy. The office stores all prescription and non-prescription medication and makes parental arrangements for the time and availability of the medication as well as its administration. All medications must be taken home at the end of the school year. Those left unclaimed will be disposed of. No school or district employee is allowed to administer to any student, or supervise a student self-administration of, any prescription or non-prescription medication until a completed and signed school medication authorization form is submitted by the student’s parent/guardian. This form must be signed by a doctor. This does not include the emergency administration of an epinephrine auto injector (an EpiPen) by a trained school or district employee as provided under state law. No student is allowed to possess or consume any prescription or nonprescription medication on school grounds or at a school-related function. A student may possess an epinephrine auto injector (an EpiPen) and/or an asthma inhaler prescribed for immediate use at the student’s discretion, provided the student’s parent/guardian has completed and signed an authorization for student self-medication form.

Back to School shopping for clothes? Please remember that we have a dress code. Also note that all of our buildings are air-conditioned. The following is our dress code. DRESS FOR STUDENTS IN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL Good taste in dress calls for neatness, moderation, modesty and appropriateness. Footwear must be worn at all times. Students are to present themselves, through clothing and appearance, in a manner that encourages themselves, their peers and teachers to focus as completely as possible on teaching and learning while minimizing distractions. 1. Coats: Coats are not to be worn to class. Teachers may make exceptions to this rule if the temperature in the classroom makes it necessary. Adornment: Students are expected to adorn themselves in a manner that encourages themselves, their peers and teachers to focus as completely as possible on teaching and learning while minimizing distractions. This expectation covers jewelry, body art, piercings, and other forms of adornment. Student safety is of paramount concern, for both the student involved and their peers. Hats/head coverings: The wearing of hats/head coverings is not allowed in the school building. If brought to school, they are to be kept in your locker during the school day. 4. Mutilated Clothing: Excessively torn or ripped clothing is not considered acceptable dress. 5. Obscene Clothing: Tasteful dress is expected. Any clothing with sexual innuendos; alcohol, drug, or tobacco products; derogatory comments or caricatures is prohibited. 6. Shirts/Tops: All shirts/tops are to have sleeves and extend past the waistline to completely cover the wearer at all times, regardless of activity. Tanks tops, boat-neck tops that reveal undergarments, sleepwear, loungewear, midriff tops, and see-through tops are some examples of inappropriate shirts/tops. 7. Shorts, Skirts, and Spandex/tights: Shorts and skirts must be tip of finger length at a minimum, as measured with arms extended straight down at the sides. Students must change inappropriate clothes if worn to school. Wearing apparel underneath inappropriate clothing does not make the exterior clothing appropriate, i.e. short skirts/shorts with spandex or tights underneath is not acceptable. Spandex/tights must be worn under school-appropriate clothing, not alone. 8. Oversized and/or Low-Rising Pants/Shorts: Oversized and/or low-rising pants/shorts must be worn in such a way so as to not reveal underwear or portions of the body considered inappropriate or in bad taste. We expect students who wear low-rise pants to wear a shirt or top that covers their waistline at all times, whether sitting, bending, or standing. The use of chain(s) as a belt or wallet protector is prohibited. NOTE: Students may be required to change their appearance and/or clothing or to spend the day in in-school suspension if their attire or appearance is deemed by a staff member to be in violation of the dress code.

This just in: School is more than just academics! What the Research Tells Us: Those who stay in school receive something more than a diploma. It is more than discussing academic subjects like reading, writing and arithmetic. Students who stay in school and finish their high school education possess something non-grads don't have. Something happens in the twelve years of a K-12 school experience that doesn't occur in someone without a diploma. As economist James Heckman (from the University of Chicago) reviewed the results of longitudinal studies, he drew a few conclusions. Those are summarized here: Academic success does not necessarily predict future success in life. Students gain and mature greatly when they remain in a disciplined routine. Improvement and maturity occur in relationship with a cohort of people. Social and emotional learning are a large part of the education process. In other words, there are hidden advantages to staying in school. For more information, go to https://growingleaders.com/blog/the-hidden-advantages-of-staying-in-school/

Just because you want to enjoy the summer months doesn’t mean your child has to stop learning during the summer. Students interested in growth and maintaining their learning through the year, as well as those looking for other options, are the perfect candidates for opportunities through our school district, our local library, through apps such as Freckle, or video games with educational programs like Minecraft for Education. Summer break can still be fun, but it doesn't have to be a vacation from learning.

Ever wonder what goes on at the middle school all summer? Well..it's a time to clean, paint, repair, renovate and renew. In these pictures you'll see Mr. Earle and Mr. Grossmeyer cleaning carpets. You'll also see in-process painting, the mid-process transformation of rooms 10 & 11 (former computer labs) to new math labs, the updating of the woodshop room to our new STEAM room (yes, there will still be a project or two with wood (to utilize design, art, engineering and construction skills), and pics of the ladders, cleaning and painting materials used and pics of the gym and cafeteria walls. If you remember the yellow glazed tiles in the gym, you'll notice those tiles are now the same color as the upper portions of the gym walls. Gym floor is sanded and will get a new cost of finish. Same painting ideals for the cafeteria walls, which once were mismatched following previous bond issue updates creating a mish-mash of glazed tiles colors. Working toward a brighter, nicer, more up to date place to learn!

A big Thank You to Officer Brian Pitt for talking to our students yesterday about his career in law enforcement, specifically about his specialty, computer forensics. This tied in well with Officer Whitney Meissner's message to our kids last week about internet and phone safety. Brian works for a number of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to fight technology-based crime and did a great job of explaining to our students how data storage and retrieval works on social media, phones and other devices. The big takeaway-nothing ever disappears from the internet and nothing is secret!

Thank you to our local law enforcement agencies for teaming up to bring their full contingent of drug dogs to our high school and middle school today. Saginaw and Bay County Sheriff's Departments, Saginaw Township PD, and coordination with Richland Twp. PD. WORKING TOGETHER TO KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE!! HMS practiced Secure Mode Safety Drill today prior to the dogs' arrival and continued that throughout the visit. FYI- During these visits, the handlers always "plant" some contraband in areas where students are not present as a means of rewarding the dogs for working hard on their search. That also lets us know that the dogs are actively searching and finding any contraband. Good news=no contraband found! (Except for the "plants", of course). Lots of good questions from our kids as well. If parents have any questions about these visits, please contact your child's school principal for more information.

Do you know a middle school girl who is curious about technology? Camp Infinity is a one-week summer technology camp for girls entering grades 5th-8th in Fall 2019. Camp Infinity introduces girls to computer and internet technologies through hands-on activities. Campers are split into two groups according to the Fall 2019 grade level: 5th-6th grade and 7th-8th grade. Campers in grades 5th-6th will create their own web page using HTML and program Dash robots. Campers in grades 7th-8th will create their own web page using HTML and program EV3 or Vex robots. In addition, students will participate in mini- sessions that highlight programming skills and real-world uses of technology. Campers will also get an opportunity to meet with women who work in technological fields and explore career options in technology. For more information, please visit the camp registration page at https://mymcwt.secure.force.com/Events/cnp_paas_evt__ExternalRegistrationPage?Site_Id=a2N0a000000dm0nEAA.

End of the 2nd Marking Period/ 1st Semester is Friday, January 18th. Reminder for 6th, 7th and 8th graders -- Criteria for passing any particular semester of a core curricular class are: Earn a passing grade in each marking period of that particular semester (this is the PRIMARY OPTION) OR Earn a passing grade in at least one marking period in a given semester plus pass a comprehensive semester exam OR (As a final option) Complete online courses in summer school. All classes of this nature should be attempted only after failing to pass a regular class offering or unless approved by the principal. This type of class has attendance rules and a cost. Students who fail a marking period are allowed to retake previously failed assessments to earn a passing marking on those failed assessments in order to pass the marking period. As a prerequisite to this, the student must have satisfactorily completed all work included in the unit preceding the assessment. This must happen within five (5) days following the last day of the first three marking periods OR within the final 10 days of the fourth marking period. In semester 2 of 8th grade, students must pass each core course without retakes--this is in preparation for high school expectations.

Our 8th grade girls basketball team finished the season as strong as they started. Last night the girls defeated Alma 50 - 20. They finish the year with an outstanding record of 11-1. As a coach I could have never asked more of these 9 girls. I am so proud of each and every one of the girls. They were amazing all year, giving their best in every practice and every game. They are dedicated and love the game....and it showed whenever they took the court. I want to thank my girls for a wonderful season. But most important thank you for showing the true meaning of "team." I will miss watching our dominate the court, but most important I will miss what we have been, "TOGETHER." - Love - Coach Olinger. Their stats for last night rocked the court. Reagan Finkbeiner "Rags, " scored 15 points and had 9 steals. Breanna Turner, "Cupid," had 10 points and 5 steals. Chloe "Weseasl" Watson ended the season with 8 points and 4 steals. Ella "Pips" Wardlow finished with 7 points and 7 rebounds. Izzy "Zeik" Loucks dominated under the basket with 10 rebounds and 2 points. Alyssa "Smiles" Dearman finished her last game with 4 points. Charli "Charles" Munger put up 2 points as well as Averi "Smalls" Hall. And Morgan "Walle" gave it her all to end the season.
