Presenting the Class of 2012 From the Desk of Dave Holmer

June / July 2012

The Year in Review

The school year in review provides a list of the great activities that have taken place. Here are a few examples that come to mind: Our Middle School students participated in the 4th annual retreat to set goals and learn how important it is to work together. Our band and music hosted two concerts which filled the auditorium. The elementary school hosted several evening meetings and celebrations of student learning. The high school science club sponsored two successful blood drives. The Leadership class completed projects to increase school spirit and improve the school environment. The entire community helped with the installation and purchase of the new football scoreboard. Both Middle and High School Washington State Math Assessment scores provided plenty of evidence that the new emphasis on math is paying off. The community voted to renew the existing Maintenance and Operation Levy to provide funds needed for extracurricular activities, instructional materials and repairs. Over 60 volunteers served as panelists as the class of 2012 completed a graduation requirement know as Senior Presentations. The Lady Volleyball Team placed 3rd in state for the best finish ever. DPICC, the Darrington Prevention/Intervention Community Coalition, is working to foster an environment which minimizes substance abuse, maximizes student achievement, and overall wellness of the community. The community celebrated as the Athletic Hall of Fame honored the first inductees. High School students participated in the Poetry Out Loud Contest. The Arlington Rotary club recognized several of our juniors and seniors for community service and leadership.

Elementary School News from Principal, Tracy Franke This year we continued using the double bus run to provide supplemental reading and math programs to our elementary students. We had over 110 students receive tutoring during this time! The library was also open during this time to provide a safe and inviting place for students to work. Through volunteers, we were also able to provide additional support for reading and art projects. Next year we hope to expand the number of volunteers willing to come in during this morning block to provide additional learning opportunities. With the introduction of the PAX Good Behavior Game to our staff through Joe Neigel from the Darrington Prevention/Intervention Community Coalition and an enthusiastic primary staff, we saw a decrease in classroom disruptions of almost 75%. Along with this program Lucy Monte Calvo worked with Mr. Neigel to bring alternative seating (exercise balls) to the primary classrooms. This allowed the energy students have to be channeled in a positive way during class time. Working together with the Family Support Center, Sauk-Suiattle and Kids’ Place Preschools, our Family Nights really included the whole family. This year we provided a program, ACES, for the adults while their children created Valentine’s for the elderly. We also had our annual Dr. Seuss Night to celebrate the joy of reading. Our students were very fortunate to again have Tim Monte Calvo volunteering countless

hours so our primary students could have music and perform in two concerts. At our end of the year Celebration of Learning students were able share their learning with their families. With the focus on increasing student achievement, our staff participated in several staff development trainings. One series of these trainings included a focus on math and aligning our instruction and curriculum to the Common Core Standards (CCS). We will continue this work into next year. We will also begin looking at the CCS for English Language Arts which includes reading standards. I want to thank the teachers for all the extra time they spent preparing and planning to meet our student’s needs. We will again be asking for community volunteers to share their interests with our students. Do you know that many kids do not know how to play many of the card games you learned as a child or how to put together models or knit? If you enjoy doing these things, we have ways for you to share that knowledge. Please give the elementary a call in August at 436-1313. Thank you again to everyone who volunteered their time to help the students at Darrington Elementary School. From everyone at Darrington Elementary School…..Have a safe and happy summer!

Elementary Teacher Broadens Her Service To The Community Our own elementary teacher, Janet Loyd, was ordained on June 20th, and will serve the congregation at her home church, Transfiguration Episcopal, here in Darrington. Janet came to Darrington in 1987 to take a teaching position. She joined Transfiguration Episcopal and made note that often times no priest was available to offer Sunday services. Her wonder about filling that role became a journey of 10 years. While taking on this new role in her life she also looks forward to teaching the young students entering her classroom for many more years.

Kindergarten Home Visits Kindergarten teacher, Eileen Porch, will again be doing summer visits to the homes of incoming kindergarten students. The purpose is to facilitate an easier transition from home to school for the child, family and teacher. The visits are 45-60 minutes and help establish a good feeling about school for the child and family. Mrs. Porch will discuss supply needs and am/pm placement. She will be contacting you with the following possible dates for an appointment. Tues., August 7 Thurs., August 9 Tues., August 14 Sat. & Sun., August 11 & 12 Mrs. Porch looks forward to visiting with you and your child.

Cont. from page 1. The drama club presented three performances of “You Can’t Take It With You.” Teen ‘Nites’, sponsored by the Family Support and Resource Center and the Sauk-Suiattle Tribe, were well attended. The Tulalip Tribes Charitable Funds Committee donated $5000 to support the athletic department and all sport teams. Joe Neigel, Prevention Coordinator with the Snohomish County Alcohol & Other Drugs Unit shared the significance of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) with parents and guardians. Our male and female athletes were recognized with all league honors. Seniors earned scholarships from ten organizations. The Youth Council, sponsored by the Darrington Family Support and Resource Center, participated in numerous activities and projects including the State Summit. High school and elementary students had a chance to hear a Holocaust survivor. The Science Center’s Space Odyssey visited the elementary school. Teams from 1st grade and 3rd/4th grade presented their solution in the Destination ImagiNation program which stresses creativity, teamwork, and problem solving….and next year promises to be just as busy! Have a relaxing summer.

Darrington Youths are WELL AWARE! The Darrington Clinic and the Darrington Prevention Intervention Community Coalition succeeded in receiving a grant from the State to address alcohol and drug prevention. The goal is to address the needs and difficulties that Darrington teens have in accessing health care, information, and services. Our approach has been three pronged. First, we’ve started a Teen Clinic! Shannon Thom ARNP, the Clinic’s recently hired primary care provider has been meeting with interested Middle and High School students at the high school (see below). Next, both Shannon and Dr. Schillhammer come to the schools to provide lectures on important physical and health related topics. Finally we hope to develop a personal, local social media website where students could blog anonymously to communicate with our local health care professionals. They would be linked and referred directly to reliable health care resources for help and information. We hope Well Aware will help our kids make wise life choices and get advice and answers from someone they know and trust. The WellAware Clinic outreach has been available to Darrington students on Thursday afternoons since April and will remain available through the summer at the Darrington Family Resource Center. Family nurse practitioner Shannon Thom provides FREE confidential health education on a variety of topics—healthy eating, exercise, substance abuse prevention, smoking, mental health, etc. An initial clinic appointment is available to students who need more in-depth assessment or treatment, courtesy of the funding provided by the grant and the Darrington Clinic Hospital Guild. Students have been primarily referred by school staff so far, but are welcome to drop in. Parents are also welcome to refer students. We are looking forward to building connections between the school, the community, and the clinic. Students with accurate information are better equipped to make healthy decisions throughout their lives. As a measure of our success in this process the grant requires that we use a survey tool to assess how we may have changed our kids’ awareness and influence behaviors. Parents of next years H.S. freshman and seniors may receive a RAAPS survey to be filled out confidentially by the student and returned anonymously. We hope you will understand the value in knowing more about their behaviors and where they may go for help. Please allow their private participation in the surveys so we can best assess teen problems and what tools we can use to help in modeling their future. Thank You Gary Schillhammer MD

Family and Student Access Be sure to check out Family Access on the Darrington School District Website: http://www.dsd.k12.wa.us/. On the family access website you can access your student’s school information. Some of the information available includes grades, assignments, attendance, lunch balances, demographic information, and schedules. Middle and high school families –you may now request a weekly progress report be emailed to you. This option is available in your family access. Please call Val Smith at the high school for your login and password information. or for help with accessing this feature.

Please Keep Sick Children at Home! When a child wakes up looking flushed, feeling stuffed-up or queasy, remember the 2 C’s when making a decision about attending school or day care: Contagious and Comfort. Please keep your child at home with the following symptoms which mean that the illness is contagious: Diarrhea, vomiting, or fever (above 100.4 by mouth) within the past 24 hours • Thick greenish yellow mucus or pus draining from the eye • Sore throat, especially if combined with fever or swollen glands • Rashes unrelated to heat or diapering or related to known communicable causes • Unusual tiredness, paleness, lack of appetite or irritability. Aside from any of these warning signs, the question becomes whether your child feels well enough to function comfortably at school or day care.

Child absent due to illness or medical appointment? Please call or email: Elementary School—360.436.1313 dgreen2@dsd.k12.wa.us MS/HS—360.436.1140 ext. 252 vsmith@dsd.k12.wa.us lbrooks@ds.d.k12.wa.us Other absences should be prearranged with the office and teacher and may or may not be considered excused per state mandates. Medication at School State law requires schools to have:

A written, current, unexpired request from a licensed physician to administer medication

A written, current, unexpired request from a parent or guardian to administer medication

The provided medication must be in an original prescription container/or original over-thecounter container. The medication permit must be signed by the child’s physician and by the parent/guardian. This means that the office cannot give out any medication without this medication permit. Parent notes accompanying medication cannot be honored. This precaution is taken for your child’s health and safety. You may pick up a medication permit at the office.
