Attention Parents of K-3 Students: Reading Roadmap's Literacy-Integrated Family Engagement program, or LIFE, is a key component of our overall strategy for improving literacy for K-3 children. LIFE is designed to bring families together with schools to create supportive connections that will deepen children's relationships with their parents and enhance their literacy skills. Families that are connected to schools and to a community of parents are more likely to reach out to their child's school and to each other for support. LIFE sessions facilitate emotional and academic experiences aimed at increasing a child's reading skills while supporting a culture of literacy at home. Each week features activities to bring families closer together and create closer connections between families and our school. Parents and children work together to become lifelong learners and readers. The spring 2019 session begins on Jan. 28. Contact Deana Baldwin if you'd like to improve your power as a parent! She can be reached by calling 785-414-8161 or emailing dbaldwin@usd487.org.

Dear Parents and Guardians, As part of SCHOOL/DISTRICT commitment to students’ safety and mental health, beginning in January, 2019 we are launching an anonymous reporting program, which will allow students and parents to make anonymous reports about concerns of safety or student wellness. Our program is student-focused, as opposed to crime-focused, meaning it is a tool for alerting caring adults about students who need help—not snitching. This is part of our continuous effort to increase campus and student safety, and provide students with a safe, completely anonymous outlet to share concerns. Students can use our new P3 Campus app to report: bullying, suicide concerns, depression, sexting, stealing, threats, cutting, abuse, dating and domestic violence, fights, drugs, alcohol, weapons or other types of dangerous situations that threaten their safety or the safety of others. Their reports will be addressed by a trained team of school officials and law enforcement, when necessary. When you or your student have a concern, you can go to P3Campus.com on your computer, tablet, or laptop-- or you can download the free P3 Campus mobile app-- and make a 100% anonymous report in less than five minutes. The use of anonymous reporting apps in state programs like Safe2Tell Colorado have proven to be successful in providing the tools and information needed for school officials and to proactively address concerning behaviors, potential incidents of violence, and other harmful situations on campus before they develop. We look forward to working with you and your student to continue making SCHOOL/DISTRICT a safe school.

The middle school staff members chose 7 th grader, Tyler Urbanek, as the November Student of the Month. Tyler has participated in volleyball, basketball, track, band and Student Council during her 2 years at the middle school. Tyler feels that the teachers chose her as student of the month because she is focused and works hard in and out of the classroom and that she is kind to everyone. Tyler is the daughter of Leann and Andy Urbanek.

SEPTEMBER STUDENT OF THE MONTH Conner LaRosa, son of Eric and Debbie LaRosa has been awarded Student of the Month for September. Conner thinks he was selected because of his great work ethic, and his willingness to do his best in everything he does. Throughout his high school years, Conner has participated in football, basketball, track, FBLA, HOSA, and FFA. When asked, Mr. Hirsh said, “Conner always has a positive outlook in class. He is always willing to joke and get involved in my lessons. He also keeps the rest of the class in line. But his positive energy doesn’t stop in the classroom. He is willing to help anyone who needs it and follows the rules. He’s a great example for others.”

Mrs. Griffiths' MTSS group is working on technical reading and writing. Technical reading requires you to follow (sometimes complex) instructions, such as a manual used by a mechanic. So students were divided into groups of 2 or 3 students. The students were given instructions on how to construct a pirate out of Lego pieces. Students pictured were trying to find the necessary Lego pieces to construct their pirate. When the groups finish, they will create their own figure and write out instructions for someone else to follow.
