ANNOUNCEMENTS Parent Teacher Conferences Nov. 6-9. A conference gives you an important opportunity to review your child’s progress and talk with the teacher about your concerns or questions. If you have not already done so, please sign up for a conference! Please note that the school schedule is different during conferences. Monday, November 6 is a pupilfree day (no classes). Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (Nov. 7, 8, 9) are Minimum Days to allow more time for conferences in the afternoons. On Minimum Days, Pre-K, TK, and Kinder leave at 12:25 st nd rd th th pm, 1 and 2 grades at 1:35 pm and 3 -4 -5 depart at 1:50 pm. Blue Dog Deliveries – If you purchased items during the Blue Dog Catalogue sale, they will be delivered this week beginning on November 2. Please check in the Community Room for your items and pick them up promptly. The student reward party for the Blue Dog fundraiser will be held that day afterschool. PTA VP for Fundraising Luhanda Garvin will be sending permission slips to those children who were the top sellers AND to a group of lucky children chosen by lottery to participate. Please address any questions about Blue Dog (items or the party) directly to Luhanda at Edison.fundraising.vp@gmail.com After School Support – Not all children learn to read, acquire a second language, or become proficient at math at exactly the same pace . Some may need different or additional support in order to close the gap between where they are now and where they should be to meet grade level standards. We are able to provide some different support (small groups with a specialized teacher) during the school day. But some students also will need some additional minutes of instruction. During your parent-teacher conferences, your child’s teacher will let you know if there is an after-school support program recommended for your child. th 5 Grade – Catalina Trip – The $50.00 deposit for the Catalina trip is due by October 30. nd November 2 , there is a mandatory Catalina parent meeting at 6:00 pm in the cafeteria. Important trip information and forms will be distributed.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: WHAT DIFFERENCE DO A FEW MINUTES MAKE? Recently, I was meeting with a group of our teachers talking about writing instruction. One shared with the group that when they scored and analyzed student writing together, they’d noticed that there was a particular area of word work that the students were missing. So that team had carved out some instructional time to work every day on that area -first thing in the morning when young minds are fresh! Another group of teachers shared that they had done the same thing with a quick daily math warm up and review because students need to see number patterns and solve problems in lots of different contexts. Another teacher noted that her class had their morning meeting and practiced focus and problem solving skills first thing in the morning. What all these teachers lamented is that there was a group of children in each of their classes who consistently arrive 5-10 minutes late. They were regularly missing all or most of this critical instruction. While 510 minutes doesn’t seem like very much – the time mounts up. If a child is late 10 minutes over 20 days in the course of the year, they are missing 100200 minutes of instruction and practice that their peers have had. That doesn’t help us close achievement gaps. In fact, it makes them wider. Imagine how much more solid students’ skills could be if they all had that 200 minutes of instruction. When we do our tours for prospective parents, I always say that regular on-time attendance is especially essential in an immersion program because we teach an extra language in the same amount of time that other schools teach one language. We have to use every available instructional minute and we really limit interruptions to instructional time. Our district also makes a big push for regular and on-time attendance and creating a culture of attendance -- every day, every month. And so, we send letters, make phone calls, and make home visits to encourage regular attendance. And we periodically remind you of the important things children miss when they are not here or come late. We do this because achievement and student success are inextricably linked to attendance. One of the most important things parents can do to support academic success is to get students to school every day and every day on time. It’s the top indicator of being on track for graduation and college readiness and in elementary school, good attendance is related closely to good reading skills. When we work together, we can recover valuable learning time for our students. Thank you for your dedication all year long—together we can make a difference and boost achievement!

Conferencias de Padres y Maestros del 6 – 9 de Noviembre - Una conferencia les da una oportunidad de revisar el progreso de su hijo/a y hablar con el maestro/a sobre sus preocupaciones o preguntas. ¡Sí aún no lo han hecho, por favor apúntense para una conferencia! Por favor noten que el horario de clases es diferente durante las conferencias. El lunes, 6 de noviembre es un día libre de estudiantes (no hay clases). El martes, miércoles y jueves (7,8,9 de noviembre) son días mínimos para permitir más tiempo para las conferencias en las tardes. En días mínimos, Preescolar, Kindergarten Transicional y Kindergarten salen a las 12:25 pm, grados 1º y 2º a la 1:35 pm y los grados 3º, 4º y 5º salen a la 1:50 pm. Entregas de Perro Azul – Si compraron productos de la venta de Catalogo Perro azul, serán entregadas esta semana comenzando el 2 de noviembre. Por favor revisen en el Salón Comunitario por sus productos y recójanlos pronto. La fiesta de premio para la recaudación de fondos Perro azul se llevará a cabo ese día después de clases. La Vice Presidenta de la PTA de Recaudaciones de Fondos Luhanda Garvin mandará formas de permiso para los niños quienes vendieron las cantidades más grandes Y para un grupo de niños suertudos quienes fueron elegidos por sorteo para participar. Por favor dirijan cualquier pregunta sobre Perro Azul (productos o la fiestra) directamente a Luhanda en Edison.fundraisin.vp@gmail.com Apoyo Después de Clases – No todos los niños aprenden a leer, adquieren un segundo idioma, o se hacen proficientes en matemáticas al mismo paso. Algunos pueden necesitar apoyo diferente o adicional para cerrar la diferencia entre dónde están ahora y dónde deben estar para cumplir con las normas del nivel de grado. Podemos proveer algo de apoyo diferente (grupos pequeños con maestros especializados) durante el día escolar. Pero algunos estudiantes también necesitarán minutos adicionales de instrucción. Durante sus conferencias de padres y maestros, el maestro/a de su hijo/a les avisará si hay un programa de apoyo después de clases recomendado para su hijo/a. 5º Grado – Viaje a Catalina – El depósito de $50.00 para el paseo de Catalina debe ser entregado el 30 de octubre. El 2 de noviembre, tendremos una reunión obligatoria de Catalina para padres a las 6:00 pm en la cafetería. Se distribuirán información y formas importantes para el viaje.

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: ¿QUÉ DIFERENCIA HACEN UNOS MINUTOS? Recientemente, me reuní con un grupo de nuestros maestros hablando sobre la instrucción de escritura. Uno compartió con el grupo que cuando calificaron y analizaron juntos la escritura estudiantil, notaron que hay un área en particular de trabajo de palabras que a los estudiantes les estaba faltando. ¡Entonces el equipo había recortado algo del tiempo de instrucción para trabajar cada día en esa área – primer cosa en la mañana cuando las mentes estén frescas! Otro grupo de maestros compartió que ellos habían estado haciendo lo mismo con calentamiento rápido diario y revisión porque los estudiantes necesitan ver los patrones de números y resolver problemas en muchos contextos diferentes. Otra maestra notó que su clase tenía sus reuniones en las mañanas y practicaban enfoque y habilidades de resolver problemas primeramente en la mañana. Lo que todos estos maestros lamentaron es que hay un grupo de niños en cada una de sus clases quienes consistentemente llegan 5 – 10 minutos tarde. Regularmente están perdiendo toda o la mayoría de la instrucción crítica. Aunque 5 – 10 minutos no parecen mucho – se acumula el tiempo. Si un niño/a llega 10 minutos tarde más de 20 días en el transcurso del año, se pierden 100 – 200 minutos de instrucción y práctica que sus compañeros han tenido. Eso no nos ayuda cerrar las diferencias de rendimiento. De hecho, las hace más grandes. Imaginen cuanto más sólidas las habilidades de los estudiantes pudieran ser si todos tuvieran esos 200 minutos de instrucción. Cuando hacemos nuestras orientaciones para padres prospectivos, siempre digo que asistencia a tiempo y regular es especialmente esencial en un programa de inmersión porque enseñamos un idioma extra en la misma cantidad de tiempo que otras escuelas enseñan en un idioma. Tenemos que usar cada minuto de instrucción disponible y realmente limitamos interrupciones al tiempo de instrucción. Nuestro distrito hace un gran esfuerzo para asistencia regular y a tiempo y crear una cultura de asistencia – cada día, cada mes. Y entonces, mandamos cartas, hacemos llamadas, y hacemos visitas a los hogares para animar asistencia regular. Y periódicamente les recordamos de las cosas importantes que los niños pierden cuando no están aquí o llegan tarde. Hacemos esto porque el rendimiento y éxito estudiantil son inextricablemente conectados a la asistencia. Una de las cosas más importantes que los padres pueden hacer para apoyar el éxito académico es traer a los estudiantes a la escuela cada día y cada día a tiempo. Es el mayor indicador de estar en camino para graduación y estar preparados para la universidad y en la escuela primaria, asistencia buena es relacionada muy cercana a las habilidades de lectura. Cuando trabajamos juntos, podemos recuperar tiempo valioso de aprendizaje para nuestros estudiantes. ¡Gracias por sus dedicación todo el año entero – juntos podemos hacer la diferencia y aumentar rendimiento!
