Special Thanks Before completely patting the holidays behind ns, we'd like w\o send out a special thank yon to Santa for taking time from

f his bnsy schedule to visit the boys and girls at Chateaugay Central School. Santa arrived in style on December 22nd thanks to Mr. Roach and the Chateaugay Volunteer Fire Department. After his arrival, Santa visited students in grades PreK-2. All of the children were very excited to see him. A special thank you also goes out to Mr.Walley and his students for helping Santa both before and during Santa's visit. Mr.Walley and his students helped by working with the students in grades PreK-2 to make special holiday projects. Please look at the picture collage on the next page of the newsletter for some images from Santa's visit. ATTENTION PARENTS AND STUDENTS

Following the holiday break, many students came back to school excited about a new laptop computer, an Ipod, an Ipod Touch, a Nintendo DS, a Nintendo PSP, or cell phone. Although we understand this excitement, we require that students leave these things at home. Not only are these technological wonders expensive, but they are also very

[distracting and have caused problems within and among classrooms. It is our policy, if students are found with any of the above devices, to take the device and to hold it in the Elementary Office until a parent is able to come retrieve it. Please know that if there is a special reason or circumstance for which your child needs to have his/her cell phone, you may call Mrs. Fowler in the Elementary Office ahead of time to speak to her regarding the situation. Thank you so much for your help with, and understanding of, this policy.

tips to cut back on added sugars

Nutrition Education Series

Cut back on buying foods and beverages with added sugars. If you don't buy them, your kids won't get them very often. Eating too many sweet treats can contribute to tooth decay and overweight. So, it is important for kids, and adults, to limit eating sugary foods and drinks.

1

serve small portions

It's not necessary to get rid of all sweets and desserts. Instead, teach your child that a small amount of sweets or a treat can go a long ways. Use smaller bowls, plates, and utensils for your child to eat with. Children can practice serving from small bowls as you help them.

make food fun Sugary foods that are marketed to kids are advertised as "fun foods." Try making nutritious

foods fun by preparing them with your child's help and being creative together. Make a smiley face with sliced bananas for eyes, raisins for a nose, and an orange slice

for a mouth. Or, cut fruit into fun and easy shapes with

3

use the check-out lane

that does not display candy Most grocery stores will have a candy-free check-out

lane to help moms out. Waiting in a store line makes it easy for children to ask for the candy or gum that is right in front of their faces to tempt them.

8

name a food your child helps make Serve "Dawn's Salad" or "Peter's Sweet Potatoes"

for dinner. The food will be nutritious and your child will be proud of the meal he or she helped create. They will also be more willing to try new things ifthey get involved in meal planning.

4

choose not to offer sweets as rewards By offering food as a reward for good behavior, children learn to think that some foods are better

than other foods. Reward your child with kind words and comforting hugs or non-food items, like stickers, to make

play with food Let your child make towers out of whole-grain crackers or make funny faces on plates with pieces of fruit.

Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up Time Required: 30 minutes

Materials Needed: Paper Cellophane Tape Pen or Pencil

Flashlight or Lamp

Instructions: Tape a large piece of paper to the wall. Have the child stand or sit sideways next to the paper. Darken the room and shine the flashlight or lamp (without a lamp shade) on them so their profile is shadowed on the paper. Trace the shadow. Cut out the profile and mount it on contrasting piece of paper.

This looks great with the profile cut out of black paper and mounted on white paper or vice versa.

Elementary Foreign

Language Lessons JftŠ/& Each year, Juniors and Seniors from Mrs. Simonsen's

French Classes and Mrs. Swanston's Spanish Classes take time to teach foreign language lessons to our elementary students. This year, our elementary students received six lessons in

either French or Spanish. Among other things, students learned the basics of the language such as the alphabet, numbers, and colors. They also learned how to speak short phrases. The high school students did a wonderful job of preparing and teaching their lessons and of keeping the students engaged and involved. During their last lesson, the elementary

students were treated to a sample of a food that is popular in France or Spain (dependent on the language being learned). Thank you to all of the high school students who were involved in teaching the lessons and to Mrs. Simonsen and Mrs. Swanston for making the lessons possible.

Reading and Understanding Nonfiction Texts

The students in Mrs. Dumas' class just finished a unit on reading and understanding nonfiction texts. One important skill they learned is how to identify main ideas and details using "boxes and bullets". The

students worked with a partner to prepare a poster on a topic they read about. The partners then taught their classmates a lesson on the topic using boxes and bullets to summarize some main ideas that they learned. The presentations and posters were very impressive!

Students Present Donation to Mission of Hope Students from Mrs. Watson's Second Grade Classroom represented ChateaugayCentral School in presenting the hinds collected by the students and staff, to support orphans at the North Country Mission of Hope facility in Nicaragua. Students and staff collected donations during the holiday season to benefit the orphans they learned about at an assembly in the Fall. Students learned that they can feed a hungry child for one day for only 25 cents! This sen-ice project was a great

learning experience for students. They learned about other parts of the world, about poverty and starvation, and most importantly, about how they could make a real difference in another person's lite. These are qualities students are learning in our Social Emotional Learning Curriculum with Mrs. Srumpf. Children from Chateaugay, NY were able to practice

understanding how other people feelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;(the skill of empathy) see life from another person's perspective and ask themselves, "What can I do to show that 1 care about someone else, even if they are a stranger to me!" It was a joy to watch students

bring whatever amount of money they could to put in the collection jar. They showed such pride in helping other children,

like themselves in so many ways, except having their basic needs of food, shelter and clean water, and a family to support them. This is a hard concept for CCS students to grasp, not knowing where or when you will have your next meal, but such a wonderful lesson. Our students tookgreat satisfaction in figuring out how many children theywould be able to feed with

the money they raised. Most encouraging, the students have notabandoned this project as the holiday spirit of giving ended. They are still bringing pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and even dollars, because they have realized thatthey can continue to make a difference for other children.

"Students use the

skill ofempathy to understand what

life is like for orphans at

Nicaragua's

North Country Mission ofHope"

Mrs. Watson's Second Grade Class presents a donation to Sr. Debbie Blow, on behalf of CCS students and staff.

HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP NIGHT

In the beginning of November, CCS senior girls attended aGirls' Conference in Plattsburgh. There were many subjects discussed that day including self-defense, violence against women, and the patterns of domestic violence. Toward the end of the day, students from SUNY Plattsburgh, along with their

professor, presented on Healthy Relationships. CCS students and staff were especially impressed by this portion of the day. At the end of this discussion, Professor of Women Studies, Dr. Simona Sharoni, offered to bring her students to any school district, free of charge, to further discuss healthy relationships.

So, on Wednesday, Feb. 16th, from 6-7:30 pm, Dr. Sharoni and her students will be at CCS for much

discussion on healthy relationships. The seminar is free of charge, and there will be some light snacks offered. Students in grades 7-12 are invited, along with their parents. Groups will be split up into a younger student group, an older student group and aseparate parent group; we hope that splitting up the groups will allow forfree and open discussion.

" '

We think this night will be educational, inspiring, and FUN, FUN, FUN IIf you are astudent or aparent please come to learn about what our kids face in the area of relationships and how to handle this

delicate subject. If you have any questions please contact Donna Andre, Mary White or Amy jaggers at 497-6611.
