    Parent Concerns – In many cases when parents have a concern or a question about school they are unsure of who to contact. At Central Park, recess playground issues are first handled by the playground personnel. If they are satisfied with the results of the correction the chain ends with them. If in the playground personnel view the incident is bigger than they can solve, the incident is referred on. If it is a case of students misbehaving and acting in an unsafe or harmful way, Mrs. Page works with those issues. If the incident involves a student disagreement or social issues, Ms. Ranheim sees the students first. If Ms. Ranheim believes the issue involves inappropriate or unsafe behavior, Mrs. Page is also involved. Issues that arise from the classroom are first addressed by the classroom teacher. These issues can be social or academic in nature. If the problem persists or grows, either Mrs. Page or Ms. Ranheim become involved. Occasionally, parents have a concern about a particular staff member; Mrs. Page is the person to talk to about personnel issues. Generally, Mrs. Page will meet with the parent involved and perhaps the parent’s child. During that meeting the next course of action will be determined.

    SAVE THE DATES

    Report CardsThe district has recently changed the date for distribution of report cards to December 11. A previous blog post stated they will be distributed on December 6.

    Parenting Tip: Did you know that cooking alongside your children is a great chance to model healthy behavior and build healthy habits in your kids? Parenting Tip of the Week has some simple tasks you can give your children to help you in the kitchen during this holiday season. 

    When you cook with your children, you also have the opportunity to teach them about healthy habits. While cooking, talk to your child about the ingredients you’re using and explain why they’re healthy. For example, you can use opportunities like husking corn or peeling carrots to show that not only is the food fun to prepare, but healthy too. For example, a simple question like “which do you like better, corn or carrots?” provides an easy opening for you to talk about how certain foods are healthier than others.

    Cooking alongside your children also helps you model behavior and instill good habits. Cooking at home and using healthy ingredients can reinforce these actions for your children. Similarly, eating meals as a family helps reinforce these behaviors while offering you more time to talk and bond with your children. According to the American Psychological Association, eating meals as a family can have significant health benefits later in life.

    Kelsos Choice Assembly :  A tool for teaching conflict management skills for children Pre-K through 6th grade (Link to the Kelso's parent page). Home of the beloved choice wheel, this conflict resolution curriculum teaches children the difference between big problems and little problems. Kelso the frog is a fun and engaging way for children to learn conflict management. Kelso the frog teaches students how to solve “small” problems on their own. “Small” problems include conflicts that cause “small” feelings of annoyance, embarrassment, boredom, etc. “BIG problems” always need to be taken to an adult. These are situations that are scary, dangerous, illegal, etc. Parents are welcome to attend to learn more about this program on Friday, January 5. Grades K-2 (9:30AM) and grades 3-6 (9:55AM). Central Park Gym

    Kelso's Wheel

    New Hallway Procedure: For the safety and security of our staff and students, guests are prohibited from entering the hallway passed room 1 without an adult escort. Thank you for your cooperation.

    This holiday season, may you have lots of excitement and precious memories with family and friends during our winter break. Have a happy holiday!

    Report Cards: The district has recently changed the date for distribution of report cards to December 11. A previous blog post stated they will be distributed on December 6.

    Highly Capable: The Highly Capable Program now falls under the newly created Office of Support Services which is under which is under the direction of Nani Villareal. The Office of Support Services manages many programs that support our students and their families in different ways. Everything from Migrant Student Education and Homeless Students, to English Learners and the Highly Capable Program. 

    This year there are many changes with state requirements regarding Highly Capable Program funding, practices for identification of students, available services, and delivery of services. We are working on creating a strong framework for our Highly Capable Program and have partnered with ESD 113 to provide us support and guidance, as well as professional development opportunities for teachers who work with Highly Capable Students. Should you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Barbara Page, principal.

    Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS): One of the foremost advances in schoolwide discipline is the emphasis on schoolwide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. The broad purpose of PBIS is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and equity of schools and other agencies. PBIS improves social, emotional and academic outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities and students from underrepresented groups. Instead of using a piecemeal approach of individual behavioral management plans, a continuum of positive behavior support for all students within a school is implemented in areas including the classroom and non-classroom settings (such as hallways, buses, and restrooms). Positive behavior support is an application of a behaviorally-based systems approach to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to design effective environments that improve the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs. It is for this reason that district wide we are implementing PBIS. Link to PBIS.

    December Positive Learning Trait: Cooperation- working together for a common purpose. Model working together with others. Work together with people in their home life, community and school. Make good decisions and choices. Have positive relationships with family, teachers and peers. Understand that cooperation is a process, not a program. Help bring out the BEST in all by working together.

    5/6 Boys Basketball: The next elementary sports season will be 5/6 grade boys' basketball. First day of practice is scheduled for Wednesday, January 3, 2018!!! Look for paperwork to be sent home.

    Winter Vacation: The last day of school in December 15.  This is a full day of school.  School will resume on January 3.

    Lost and Found: Is your child missing a jacket, sweatshirt, or another article of clothing? If so, please come and check out the lost and found. Any items still in the lost and found on December 15 will be given to the clothing bank.

    Awards AssembluSave the Date! Our November/December Awards Assembly will be December 15 at 9:30am.

    Local Raid: As many of you know, one of the homes (http://www.thedailyworld.com/news/illegal-pot-raids-shock-locals/) that was raided on Tuesday borders our school property. I spoke with Sheriff Scott to access the danger to our children and he has assured me that the suspects have been arrested. I was also concerned because the raid was conducted during school hours. Sheriff Scott explained that the suspects were not in the home at the time of the raid as they were under surveillance. The safety of our children is one of my highest priorities. Should you have any questions, please contact the main office.

    Parenting Tip of the Week: How to Use YouTube Positively- Given the massive amount of content getting posted to YouTube, there’s a ton out there that is good and useful for you or your children. You can use YouTube in a healthy way by watching videos together with your child and using the platform as a tool to discover fun new things to do together. For example, you can watch origami videos with your kids and practice making cranes together or dance along to their favorite song.

    Remember that YouTube is not meant for children under the age of 13, so parents of younger children should make sure their children are only watching content you have pre-approved or only when you are able to watch with them.

    Early Release Reminder: Wednesday before Thanksgiving will be a 12:10 early release. 
     
    Congratulations! to our school: Central Park Elementary School is a 2017 School of Distinction (SOD). The School of Distinction award is the only one in the state entirely focused on combined improvement in ELA and math for Elementary and Middle Schools, and Graduation Rate for High Schools, sustained over a five-year period. Achieving this award requires continued, intentional effort from leaders and staff members. It is truly an award that recognizes the accomplishments of a dedicated and focused group of adults doing their best work for their students.

    CEE, as the lead researcher and award designer, is joined with our partner organizations—Association of Educational Service Districts (AESD), Association of Washington School Principals (AWSP), Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA), Washington State Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (WSASCD) and Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA)—to acknowledge the great work we are doing to benefit student learning and achievement.
     
    Attached you will find a methodology brief that details how the measures were calculated and other information about the School of Distinction Award. CEE used the same measurement process as 2016 to recognize improvement over time in an authentic and accurate manner to identify the School of Distinction awards for this year.

    Our efforts deserve celebration. We will receive a 2017 School of Distinction banner and Certificate from our ESD for display at your school – visual reminders and a source of pride for us and our entire school community. You can also check out the School of Distinction press release and CEE’s interactive dashboard to compare our school with others in the state. 
     
    We applaud all our staff are doing to make such positive contributions to our students.

    Band, Orchestra and Vocal Concert :Our winter concert featuring Grades K-6 will be held on January 16th at 6:30 PM in the Aberdeen High School Auditorium.  The students will perform vocally and instrumentally.
