Pullman School District BOARD REPORT

Anyone Can be Good at Math, continued… By Bill Holman, Franklin Elementary Principal

Last summer I submitted an article about mathematical learning and growth mindset, entitled “Anyone Can Be Good At Math!” I have enjoyed watching practices and attitudes evolve in my time as elementary principal, along with the quality of student learning. I thought it would be appropriate to provide a midyear update. During the 2016-17 school year, teachers in kindergarten through second grade participated in a sequence of trainings designed to help them facilitate learning activities in ways that they had likely not themselves experienced as learners. These trainings occurred over three full school days, spaced over a few months time. During these sessions teachers applied contemporary, research based learning theory to design instructional activities. They visited their own classrooms as a group and utilized their students to implement the lessons and practice the skills in the presence of each other and the trainer. They then reviewed and critiqued the activity or activities. Between sessions, teachers practiced the skills by planning and facilitating additional activities, to be reviewed when the team reassembled. One of the underlying learning theories is constructivism which has at its heart the notion that learners are not blank slates, but creators of their own learning. Constructing learning means to connect existing ideas to new ideas using reflective thought, requiring the student to take a highly active role in their own learning. In order for this to happen, the teacher needs to know their student’s level of understanding of the targeted learning. They need to design activities that have entry points for each and every student in the classroom. They then need to facilitate a process that allows the student to think, work, and then to share their thinking with others. The teacher facilitates opportunity for students to connect their thinking to the thinking of others, helping them to construct strong conceptual frameworks around the learning. Ideally in these sessions, the students all do a lot more thinking and sharing than they may have in a more traditional lesson structure.

Teachers and students alike are very excited by this work. Students feel validated in their effort and thought processes and they love to share their thinking with others. Teachers are excited by the level of engagement they are observing and by the learning and confidence the students are exhibiting. They are working hard to build their own facilitation and design skills. The trainings are continuing during the current school year. Kindergarten through second grade teachers participated in a review day, early in the year. Teachers in grades three through five are participating in a three day process much like their k-2 counterparts experienced last year. I have heard more than one comment that this classroom embedded model is the best professional development structure they have ever experienced. Trainers Kim Dennis and Michelle McKenzie are fabulously modeling with teachers and administrators the powerful and effective techniques described above. Please stay tuned for more information as we move forward. We can all be good at math!

Pullman School District

Pullman Education Foundation Supports Innovation

The Pullman Education Foundation, committed to supporting the Pullman School District, awarded the inaugural Innovation Grant to Bumpus in August, 2017. The $10,000 award was used to purchase Chromebooks which are used to collaboratively teach English to all Pullman middle school students.

The Innovation Grant has a goal of supporting projects and programming that will allow teachers, teams, or buildings to implement innovative learning initiatives that are not currently in the District budget. Projects must be approved and endorsed by the District, building leadership, and any other teachers involved in the concept. Focusing on meeting students where they are individually through learning and educational experience is a side benefit Bumpus didn’t necessarily build in to her proposal, but has grown from the project.

and the way that platform form allows me to differentiate instruction. Here you can see a portion of my classroom stream—in it you can see 4 separate assignments, tailored to individual needs that I’ve given to small groups of students,” Bumpus wrote in a December update. Funding for this type of award is made possible through private support from community members who give to the unrestricted fund at the PEF. Annual appeals for this tax-deductible support will be sent in early 2018. Applications for the 2018-2019 Innovation Grant are available now through the Pullman School District with a deadline of March 1, 2018. Funding will be available to the selected grant winner in August 2018.

Bumpus went on to write, “Having access to Chromebooks any time we want them allowed us to do a fairly involved project the first week of school.”

Let’s be social!

Innovation is a key component of engaging students in the classroom today. Amy Bumpus, teacher at Lincoln Middle School, has found a way to do just that. And her work was recognized this school year by the Pullman Education Foundation.

“I knew that it would be an awesome thing to have a class set of Chromebooks, but I don’t think I fully grasped just how incredible and important it would be until now. It has been fantastic,” Bumpus reported this past fall semester. Collaborations have begun not only across science classrooms, but also subjects. There is work being done with the teaching team in social studies as well.

Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse

 Pullman Community Update 5

February is…Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

How did National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month come to be? In 2005, the importance of addressing teen dating abuse was highlighted in the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act. The following year, both houses of Congress declared the first full week in February as National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Week. In 2010 the week became a month—TDVAM! Did You Know? • 1 in 3 high school students experience either physical or sexual violence, or both, that is perpetrated by someone they are dating or going out with. National Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 2015 • Only 33% of teens who were in an abusive relationship ever told anyone about the abuse.

Do you know a teen? Share these great resources with them to start a conversation about relationships—the good, bad, and ugly! • • •

From five people in a small office and warehouse in Colfax, to the current digs on Fairmont in Pullman, Community Action Center has helped people move toward a positive future for 30 years. Community Action Center grew out of Whitman County’s urgent need in the early 1980s for healthy food, housing, and life skills training for residents. Former Executive Director Judy Allen played an important role in Community Action Center’s history. Allen led Community Action Center from its official incorporation in 1988 through 2005. She was part of the team that worked on the 1981 Whitman County needs assessment that ultimately led to federal grant funding for the core work Community Action Center still does today. Allen’s work with the Whitman County Regional Planning Council resulted in an office in Colfax for rental assistance, weatherization, and energy assistance. That was just the beginning. People came to the office asking for help with job training, computer skills, legal advice, and basic needs like food. “All of these needs were coming out of the woodwork,” Allen said. “I was at a restaurant in Spangle drinking coffee, and the waitresses knew who I was and where I worked. They asked if there was a way they could learn how to read.” To meet more of the needs they saw every day, the agency became a nonprofit in 1988 and staff coined the name “Community Action Center.” Community Action Center moved to Pullman in 1990, on the corner of Main Street and Grand Ave at the site of a former auto body shop. Pullman offered more resources than Colfax, including businesses and community groups to volunteer regularly. “We were ahead of the curve,” Allen said. “We were not doing things like everyone else had always done them. We were in a program called ‘Project Self-Sufficiency’ that predated Welfare Reform, offering education and job training to get people off welfare.” Community Action Center also started innovative job skills training for rural women, which had not been done to that point. Allen felt a great need for a community college in Whitman County to teach basic literacy, computer skills, and other practical classes. Community Action Center was instrumental in making sure Spokane Falls Community College came to town in the 1990s. Eventually the community college and WorkSource took over much of the education aspect of Community Action Center’s work.

Community Action Center moved to its current location in 2000. Weatherization, rental assistance, and energy assistance still play a major role in how Community Action Center helps people.

Gladish tenant investigates possible issues before projects begin Plateau Archaeological Investigations brings the history and culture of an area to the discussion table before a project begins. The tenant on Gladish’s third floor conducts it archaeological and cultural resource contracting and consulting services in eastern Washington, north Idaho and eastern Oregon. Its clients include Federal and State agencies, counties, municipalities, utilities, engineering firms and private organizations. “By knowing and understanding the region we work in and the concerns of regional interested parties, we are able to focus our efforts toward providing solutions to specific concerns,” said David Harder, principal investigator of the firm. “Our reports satisfy the requirements of any funding agencies, state departments or agencies, and any tribal entities that may comment.” Five archaeologists conduct fieldwork (David Harder, Adam Sackman, Alexander New, Andrew Frierson and Tiffany Fulkerson). Brooke Cohen is office manager and Jenny Harder does payroll and is the personnel director. The group also has several part-time people that work on a project-by-project basis. Currently group members are working with Ducks Unlimited on a project near the Potholes that will result in habitat restoration for migrating waterfowl. The project area consists of wetlands areas surrounded by farm ground. “Our work here will be to help identify if there are any archaeological sites that might be impacted by either the excavation of areas to create wetland, or on the areas where they will be placing the spoils from the excavations,” Harder said. In Oregon staff have been working with a company building fiberoptic lines.

David and Jenny Harder at the firm’s newly remodeled offices on Gladish’s third floor.

“It has been nice to do those nearby projects, but I think the hundreds of jobs we have done for water reservoirs and pipelines, water distribution rehabilitation, sewer collection systems, and wastewater treatment plants— while being unnoticed in many situations—probably have the biggest impact for the most people,” the principal investigator said. Crew members have performed a large number of projects for conservation districts in eastern Washington and northern Idaho. Harder has received a Conservation Service Award for his team’s effort. In addition the firm’s support for local Boy Scout programs has earned it the Chief Kamiaken District Palouse Hills Award.

“My crew and I all really enjoy traveling the inland northwest and visiting places that we would otherwise not,” Harder said. “The background research “This project has been challenging because there are many different state, federal and tribal agencies involved,” Harder said. “This work has also taken us we conduct often provides some fun insights into the history of development. across the Columbia River multiple times, across other notable rivers, through We sometimes run into facts, such as the reason for the street names, or personal tragedies of the early settlers.” several different types of environments, and both rural and urban locations.

The firm is also active in several cities with water system improvements projects, including ones in Odessa, Reardan, Ephrata and Curlew Lake. Each of these provides challenges based on the history of the city itself, and the precontact use of the area.

“The Gladish Building has provided a comfortable and convenient location for our office space,” he said. “We are pleased to be members of the Gladish community, and really enjoy the variety of activities that take place here.”

Plateau staff also were involved in the Moscow/Pullman Airport early in the process, worked on the Palouse Wind project, and have done several projects for the Port of Whitman.

The winter months can be the most dangerous time of the year for carbon monoxide poisoning. Pullman Fire Department reminds you that carbon monoxide, also known as CO, is often called the invisible killer. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel can be sources of carbon monoxide. A person can be poisoned by a small amount of CO over a longer period of time, or by a large amount of CO over a shorter amount of time. In 2010, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 80,100 non-fire CO incidents (or an average of nine calls per hour) in which carbon monoxide was found. Cold weather increases the use of gas-powered furnaces as well as the use of alternative heating and power sources (portable generators, charcoal briquettes, propane stoves or grills) during power outages. With these sobering facts, the Pullman Fire Department has the following safety tips to prevent CO poisoning: • Arrange to have your heating system, water heater and any other gas, oil or coal-burning appliance inspected and serviced by a qualified technician every year. • Choose a CO alarm that is listed by a qualified testing laboratory. • Install battery-operated CO detectors on every level of your home. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for placement and mounting height. • Test CO alarms at least once a month; replace them according to the manufacturer’s instructions. • If the CO alarm sounds, immediately move to a fresh air location outdoors or by an open window or door. Make sure everyone inside the home is accounted for. The symptoms of CO poisoning include, headaches, nausea, dizziness or confusion or flu like symptoms. Call for help from a fresh air location and stay there until emergency personnel declare that it is safe to re-enter the home. • Don’t use a generator, charcoal grill, camp stove or other gasoline or charcoal-burning device inside the home, basement or garage or outside the home near a window. A generator should be used in a well-ventilated location outdoors away from windows, doors and vent openings. • Don’t burn anything in an unvented stove or fireplace. • Don’t let a vehicle idle inside a garage attached to a house, even if the garage door is left open.

Spokane Falls Community Colleges

February 2018


Community Involvement In January, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, SFCC-Pullman students and staff volunteered at the Hope thrift store in Moscow, Idaho. We sorted and labeled donations, tested electronics, moved furniture, and helped repair bicycles. The Hope staff were gracious, welcoming, and patient. It was a great opportunity to serve. Special thanks to Riley Sorensen, our AmeriCorps volunteer, for organizing this event.



Hi. I am Sunita. I was born and raised in India, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. After getting married, I moved to Canada, where my son was born and my husband earned his PhD. While living in Canada, I travelled to many countries with my family. I also attended basic French classes in Montreal. Later, when my husband got a faculty position at a university there, we moved to a country in the Middle East called the Sultanate of Oman, where my daughter was born. We lived in university faculty housing where I met interesting people from all around the world and became friends with people from Canada, the U.S., Greece, Russia, Bangladesh, Sudan, Australia, Sri Lanka, Sweden, and India. In 2007, my family and I moved here to Pullman. I had always wanted to improve my English writing, so I enrolled in the Intensive American Language center at WSU. I completed all the levels and then started working part-time at WSU. One day I read about the community college here in town and learned you can join at any age and with any ability level. I decided to join a class of basic skills to improve computer skills and continue improving my basic writing skills. I really enjoyed the class, and I admire the teacher, who has the passion to teach adults striving to fill in gaps in their learning. Now, in order to continue my education, I am taking college-level classes at the community college. SFCC-Pullman has given me a chance to fulfill my dream.

Recently, my second-grade daughter showed me a picture of Martin Luther King she had drawn and then colored. Next to his face, she had pasted a speech bubble that quoted him talking about his dream that some day his children would not be judged by the color of their skin, but instead by their character. When I was in second grade, I didn’t learn much about Martin Luther King or others who helped ensure civil rights for all, people such as Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez, and Dolores Huerta. It was only later in life that I learned of these people’s struggles to spread freedom, opportunity, equality, and decency. Seeing my daughter’s illustration was touching, and I began to think about the importance of following dreams of a better tomorrow in which liberty and justice will increase and about these brave people’s honorable struggles in the face of dogged opposition


Thank you!

The days are getting longer. Start planning for Spring Quarter.

Joal Lee

I recently read a book that briefly explored the idea that while all people struggle in life, no matter our background or our current reality, it is how we struggle that matters most. Some struggles are more persistent, apparent, or daunting than others, and some people face nearly overwhelming odds. We rarely know the details of what another person has gone through to be where they are right now. We are surrounded by inspiring stories we will never hear and never know to ask about. Luckily, we do know some of these stories, and they help shape the world. I am grateful for the many people who have struggled well, struggled with dignity and love and tenacity to make this world a better place, and for the many who are continuing this work. Even in our little corner of the world, I know of many students who had to fight with all their might to get to college, to stay in college, to make it through, and who then use their new strength and knowledge to lift others and contribute every day in their jobs and other interactions. And their successes were made possible by the supporting struggles of so many people around them. This has been and will continue to be the legacy of education. Through education, we can build on the tremendous foundations of opportunity laid down before us and form a future to be proud of.

A.B.E. Evening Offerings In addition to our morning offerings, we now offer Adult Basic Education in the evenings. This class is open-enrollment, so students may come in at any time during the quarter and get started. The evening offering will cover Basic Skills, GED prep, preparing for college, and Basic Computing. Tuition is $25 per quarter, and we have scholarship money to cover tuition for those experiencing financial hardship. The evening ABE program is available from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Since A.B.E. is self-paced, students can come when they are able and stay for however long fits their schedule. Nearby WSU parking is free after 5:00.

Dear Dr. Universe, Do bugs have hearts and brains? —Nick Dear Nick, Take a look inside a bug and you’ll find a brain in its head and other little brains called “ganglia” along its whole body. These tiny control centers help insects see, taste, and smell. They also help them quickly escape threats, like other bugs. “If you had little brains everywhere else, you would also be much quicker,” said professor Laura Lavine. Her office at Washington State University is full of insects. Many insect brains are smaller than the period at the end of this sentence. Even though they’re small, having several brains allows insects to make decisions much faster than if they had only one. Insects can also live without their head for a few days, skittering around with just the little brains along their backs. As the brain receives messages, an insect’s heart is pumping blood. Usually the blood is green and it flows through a tiny tube that runs along the insect’s body. It’s actually located pretty close to the brains. Insect blood can be toxic. Sometimes they will let a little blood ooze out of themselves when they think they are in trouble. Lavine explained how insects are in a family called arthropods. Arthropods wear their skeletons on the outside of their bodies and include insects, crabs, scorpions, and spiders. They all have hearts and brains wired in similar ways. Sincerely, Dr. Universe

Brett Eldredge Mom’s Weekend Saturday, April 7, 2018 7:30 p.m. Beasley Coliseum Country up-and-comer Brett Eldredge has always been attracted to singers, a fact that should come as no surprise to anyone who’s heard the Illinois native’s soulful, distinctive baritone. “I always gravitated towards big voices, because as a kid I had this big voice coming out of me,” says Eldredge. “I was hooked on the story that somebody would be telling through their voice.” With his debut album released in 2013 on Atlantic Records and new single “Don’t Ya” on the radio now, Eldredge is finally getting the chance to share a story of his own. As he continues to work hard at the craft of songwriting, there’s no question his talent will grow along with his audience. “You can create something from nothing, and that’s the coolest thing in the world to me,” Eldredge says. “This new music is me, and it’s taken every song I’ve written up to this point to get to where I am. I feel better about my music now than I ever have felt, and I can’t wait for people to hear it.” Tickets information can be found at
