The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational will again partner with The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Foundation to bring their LPGA Leadership Academy to Michigan this June to help develop the next generation of female leaders through a blend of golf and business skills. This marks the second year this partnership has brought this unique program to the State.  The two-day event will be presented by the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational on June 21 - 22, 2021 at Bucks Run Golf Club in Mt. Pleasant. A unique aspect of the program is an interactive female leadership panel discussion in which several Dow women executives share their college and career journeys, key learning along the way, and openly engage in answering questions from the participants.   In addition to attending the Academy, each participant will be eligible to apply for The LPGA Foundation Scholarship Program, which includes invitations to LPGA events, mentoring programs and a $5,000 college scholarship. Details about The LPGA Leadership Academy and applications for participation can be found via the registration website link: https://www.girlsgolf.org/2021/leadership-academy-michigan. All young women ages 13 - 18 interested in golf and planning to pursue a STEM related field in college are encouraged to apply online immediately.

Parents and students--Hard to believe, but we are wrapping up the year next week and we're ready for a Huskie round up! It's time to return Chromebooks & chargers, textbooks, library books, etc. It's also time to bring some closure to this most unusual year and we want to see you off to summer vacation in person. So...all items belonging to the school can be returned on Thursday evening, June 4 between 6-7 PM or Friday, June 5, between 10 AM and 2 PM. All you need to do is drive up to our front doors, stop at the curb, stay in your vehicle, and be ready to hand off your items to a staff member--several of us will be there to take care of you and to see you off for the summer. If neither of those options work for you, we can schedule a visit at a different time. Contact Mr. Keyser at keyser@hemlockps.com if necessary. Those who would need to keep their Chromebooks to complete summer school classes will have a different collection time.

More than ever, we are ready to provide the type of education and environment that you want for your children. As a school district, we are prepared to provide face-to-face instruction, remote learning, or a hybrid model next fall.

Parents and students--a look ahead--we are planning on a return of Chromebooks, textbooks, library books, etc. for next week. Probably Thursday evening and Friday mid-day, both for a span of time. If neither of those options work for you, we can schedule a visit at a different time. Contact Mr. Keyser at keyser@hemlockps.com if necessary. You would not need to leave your vehicle--following all social distancing guidelines, just drive up to the designated place at the building and a staff member would take your items from you.

#scienceinaction Wyatt and Lauren made a sweet little nest for a robin’s egg that they found. They weaved grass, shrubs, dandelions and used mud to hold it all together. Complete with the fuzz from the dandelion all around the egg to keep it warm so it will hatch 😉 I think they did a better job than the robins do 🤣

Oops! Sorry I missed Monday Morning "Meeting". I've been doing some reading. Here's what I found that makes good sense when it comes to handling the everyday stresses that go along with our stay-at-home order: There are steps anyone can take when feeling anxiety and stress levels rising: Motion. We’ve got to get up every 60-90 minutes and move around. Shoot some basketball. Take walks. Run. Play tennis. We need endorphins to flow. Margin. We must make sure our stress isn’t due to an overcrowded schedule. Be realistic about what can get done each day. Reduce noise or clutter if possible. Mindfulness. Instead of thinking about everything at once, try focusing your mind and breathing. Mono-task, don’t multitask. Pick one thing to get done and then move on to the next thing. Management. Part of handling stress issues is learning to manage stress: limit time on social media; get enough sleep; eat well; practice self-talk.

A Hemlock Middle School teacher could use your support for his Project: Take the Studio Anywhere! Mr. Bohn needs your help to give his students this Canon HD camera to be used in class projects throughout the year. As he explains: My middle school students are an extremely fun and bright group of learners. I find they work best when I give them options for expressing their learning. I have several artistic students who can draw and cartoon like professionals. Others write and express themselves with great feeling. I would like to be able to offer my students more options for expressing their learning. I currently have one video camera with a green screen. This is a popular option for many projects and is a bottleneck for productivity. If I had another camera set up and editing machine, I could double the opportunities for my "techie" and dramatic students to excel and find enjoyment in learning. My Project: Many of my projects in class give the option to record video with green screen effects. Having only one camera and set up currently creates a bottleneck in the flow of students who can select this option. A second camera will double the number of students who can express their learning in their preferred medium. This camera and green screen will allow students to put themselves in any situation or location needed to express their learning. Students can be on the beaches of Normandy, the Sahara Desert, or in the midst of Machu Picchu. I have an older model of this camera so I know it holds up and performs well. To support this classroom effort, you can contribute to the project using this link: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/take-the-studio-anywhere/4837855/?utm_source=dc&utm_medium=directlink&utm_campaign=teacherhub&utm_term=teacher_7161516&rf=directlink-dc-2020-04-teacherhub-teacher_7161516&challengeid=21576344

There's so much you can read about a person when they are physically present with you at school--that is a critical part of interpersonal communication in the regular classroom. But how can you hope to duplicate that in the virtual classroom? Just observe and ask! Just seeing faces and hearing each other helps. Individual check ins offer secure personal feedback as well. Maintaining social and emotional well-being is important. Our students are very happy to be able to safely interact again--see each other and hear each other--and the teacher, of course!

Learning is continuing for all of our Huskies. Have you checked Skyward to see how your child is doing in their studies? If not, this is the perfect time. And doing so regularly is a necessity. More than ever, our students need parent follow-up to ensure their success. It is imperative that all of our students continue to do their best--completing learning activities, submitting assignments, following up if necessary with suggested corrections to get full credit. We need all of our parents to be diligent in tracking their child's progress and supporting their learning. If you have questions about how your child is doing, do not hesitate to contact their teacher(s), Mrs. Zastrow (zastrow@hemlockps.com or 989.372.1307) or Mrs. Keyser (keyser@hemlockps.com or 989.482.3429)

It's time to reclaim your child's belongings from school, if they left things behind in their locker. It looks like Friday will bring us good weather; a good time to reclaim their things. We have removed all remaining items from lockers and placed them in labeled bags. You'll be getting a contact from school personnel to let you know if you have items to pick up. To ensure safety, we've scheduled pickup times by grade for Friday, April 17 in the afternoon. Fifth grade noon to 1:00. Sixth grade 1:00-2:00. Seventh grade 2:00-3:00. Eighth grade 3:00-4:00. Items will be placed on tables under our front entrance for pickup per this schedule. Please follow social distancing rules-one person at a time at the tables, touch only your child's bag, only have someone with no symptoms of illness claim the belongings. If necessary, you can contact Mr. Keyser about this- keyser@hemlockps.com or 989.482.3429 between 9 AM and 3:00 PM using text or voice.

We had a "virtual staff meeting" this morning with all HMS teachers! It was great to see each of them and hear each other's voices. We all miss being at school and seeing our students and each other. One topic of discussion was "How are our students doing in terms of meeting learning expectations and preparing for the future when we return to school?" The answers varied, but overall our kids are doing very well using online learning. Please remember--there is work to do on the part of both teachers and students to prepare for when we return--we need everyone engaged in learning to make this work. #hemlockteachersonthejobforkidsnomatterwhat #hemlockstudentsarecontinuingtolearn

Middle school parents--you should be very proud of your kids today. As I met with them today by grade, they could have been grumbling, complaining, negative or simply delirious about having three weeks off. Instead, I talked to kids who were adaptable, who were ready to do whatever they could with this time off to extend their learning, who were positive and looking on the bright side, who were ready to accept this new challenge of complete virtual learning for a couple of weeks. We have great kids at Hemlock Middle School. And terrific teachers and staff as well. AND great parents who support their kids and our staff. Thank you for helping your kids and our teachers to meet this new educational challenge head on. We have much to be proud of. Give your child a pat on the back and a high five today.

Hello middle school parents! Just a note to let you know how we are proceeding in terms of schoolwork during the coming two weeks (since the governor has shut down schools during that time. We are out of school for the next 3 weeks--2 weeks mandated by the governor plus the already-scheduled Spring Break. At this time, we are scheduled to return to school on April 6. I am meeting today with each grade level and going over our plans and answering questions kids have. All of our core class teachers will be providing means for all students to continue learning during the next two weeks. All students should be either taking home their assigned Chromebook or have a plan to use another device at home to complete school work. Students who have paid the insurance fee should be all set with a charger. Student who have not previously paid the insurance fee will be bringing home their Chromebook and a charger from school--don't worry about the insurance. If you prefer that your child use a different device that is compatible with Google Classroom and StudySync, that is fine. There will be assignments and due dates communicated from teachers via emails and Google Classroom. We are working to include parents in accessing this work so you are aware of it as well--but you can always ask your child to see their Classroom account at any point. The work assigned will be accompanied by useful instruction components as necessary--video, audio, etc.--it will not simply be work to do. Further information will be provided as it becomes available. Some staff will be here at school each day if questions or needs arise. You can always reach us via email or phone during the next two weeks. We appreciate your flexibility with this and your support of our students' education--virtual learning is new for many of us and we will do our very best to make it a valuable experience for all concerned.

What can you do to help your student and the rest of your family stay as healthy as possible all day, every day? Use good hygiene practices to prevent the spread of diseases. Stay home if you are sick and advise others to do the same. Always cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or sleeve. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, if soap and warm water are not available. We clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (computers, keyboards, desks, etc.) as often as possible; you can do the same at home and away. This is especially important when you are school and other public places. Your healthy choices help others to stay healthy as well!

Are you considering making Hemlock Middle School your educational destination next year? If so, please call 642-5253 to schedule a tour of the building and to get your enrollment questions answered. Tours are scheduled for 9 AM on Monday, March 9 and on Wednesday, March 11 at 6:00 PM. We have limited schools of choice openings for next year, so now is the time to join the Huskie Pack. If neither of these scheduled opportunities work for you, please call and schedule an appointment. We are excited to show you what we have to offer your child! While you're at it, check out our Hemlock Middle School Facebook page to see glimpses of what we have to offer.

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.

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.
