Study Tips For A Successful School Year

By Julia Preszler After a restful summer vacation, many students walk into a new school year with a newfound enthusiasm to learn and do well. Knowing solid study habits could be just what students need to help them succeed in the upcoming year.

example, if students typically watch Netflix to procrastinate, they can use Netflix as a reward for finishing an assignment or for studying for a predetermined amount of time. Students will experience less stress if they attack their responsibilities head-on. “If you take care of today, tomorrow’s easy,” said former Newtown Superintendent of Schools Joseph V. Erardi, Jr.

Learning Styles Students can customize their study methods based off of their individual learning style. The University of Massachusetts Managing Technological Distractions (UMass) Dartmouth website, umassd.edu, According to the StudyMode survey, techbreaks learning styles into three categories: nology provides the greatest distraction to visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. students: 61 percent of students surveyed Those with a visual learning style may bensaid they watch movies or television to avoid efit from using flashcards to review material, Educators offered studying tips ahead of the 2017-18 school year. doing work, and 58 percent of students use drawing pictures or diagrams of concepts, —Bee Photo, Hallabeck social media to procrastinate.

Arav Dave: Khan Academy, because it’s a free learning program that allows anyone to succeed no matter what their background is.

Max Schoetz: I think music is a great source of inspiration for students. It helps me focus. It’s very constructive, at least for me.

Aysha Hafiz: Seeing what other students can accomplish, such as [Nobel winner] Malala [Yousafzai]. It is very inspiring seeing someone your own age make a difference in your own community.

Get To Know Three All-Star Drivers By Eliza Hallabeck For All-Star Transportation’s three Newtown driver/trainers— Kate Maki, Ken Krizan, and Dave Cicchesi— the best parts of their job include the children and scenery. The trio shared information about their jobs and lives in town recently, ahead of the start of the 2017-18 school year. Along with driving buses, Mr Cicchesi, Ms Maki, and Mr Krizan also oversee training their fellow drivers. Mr Cicchesi said this school year will be his fourth driving for All-Star. He mainly drives special education routes in town, and he started the job to be with his son, Jordan, who will be a senior at Newtown High School this year. “My son is special ed, so it is easier to have him on the bus,” said Mr Cicchesi. Mr Cicchesi said he raised his son in Newtown until 2002, when they moved to Florida. The pair moved back to Newtown for Jordan’s high school years. They are both active in the Newtown community. “He does [police] cadets [and] he works for Newtown football,” Mr Cicchesi said of Jordan, listing just some of Jordan’s interests. When asked what his interests include, Mr Cicchesi said he rides a Harley-Davidson Road Glide motorcycle. He has been riding motorcycles on and off for years. When they moved back to Newtown, Mr Cicchesi said Jordan got him involved with St Rose of Lima Church’s Knights of Columbus, a Catholic family service organization. “He wanted to be a squire, so I had to be a knight,” said Mr Cicchesi, adding that he now frequently vol-

All-Star Transportation’s three trainer/drivers, from left, Ken Krizan, Kate Maki and Dave Cicchesi, at All-Star’s offices in Newtown. —Bee Photo, Hallabeck unteers at events with the group. All of the children on his bus routes call him “Mr Dave.” His favorite part of his job is “When I get the younger kids, or any of the kids, to laugh, and they tell you thank you for driving them.” Mr Cicchesi said he loves the homemade cards made for him by students or their siblings. Ms Maki has lived in Newtown for roughly 20 years, after following family to the town. She drove as an owner-operator before driving for All-Star. She has three children — Anthony, 23, Emma, 18, and Katherine, 13. Ms Maki said she spends as much time with her children as possible and she likes to go to the beach. “Cape Cod is my favorite place on

Earth. That is where I have been going since I was a baby,” said Ms Maki. Ms Maki said she has been driving “for a long time.” “My kids grew up on the bus, basically. I had my own bus... That was like our second home. I think my favorite part was watching them interact with the kids,” she said. As a mother, Ms Maki said it offered a different perspective. Parents, she said, do not always get to see how their children interact with others. “It felt like I was always driving around a big playdate,” said Ms Maki. Training other All-Star drivers, she said, gives her an opportunity to teach, which was a dream of hers

when she was younger. Ms Maki said new drivers and continuing drivers are trained. “Every four years we have to get retested,” Mr Cicchesi added, so the driver/trainers work to train drivers when possible between daily routes. The driver/trainers are also responsible for retraining and monitoring when any complaints or issues arise, according to Mr Cicchesi and Ms Maki. Mr Krizan said he has lived in Newtown since 1999, and this will be his fourth year driving for AllStar. Before working with All-Star, Mr Krizan said he worked as an engineer for Interlab in Danbury. When Interlab went out of business, Mr Krizan said he was of retirement age.

When asked what made him choose to work for All-Star, he said, “Well, my house is about two miles away... And it just sounded like it might be an interesting job.” Mr Krizan said it did turn out to be an interesting job. “I enjoy it,” Mr Krizan said. Outside of the job, Mr Krizan said he and his wife Tücsi own a little farm and “spend a lot of time taking care of that.” They grow vegetables and have horses and chickens. “It’s a hobby,” Mr Krizan said. “Hopefully we will grow it into something better, but it takes time. We aren’t in any hurry.” His favorite part of working for All-Star, just like his hobby, is also the outdoors. “Some of the routes I drive are just absolutely breathtaking in their beauty,” said Mr Krizan. “I like the driving most of all. It is fun to watch the seasons change. And if you spend 32 years in an office then your office is all of a sudden the great outdoors, it is just a different perspective.” When asked what they want people to know about their jobs, Mr Cicchesi said he wants people to understand the importance of driving rules. “Stop at the red lights,” Mr Cicchesi said. He added that many people do not know it take a bus driving roughly 35 miles per hour about 40 feet to fully stop. Ms Maki and Mr Cicchesi asked for people to be aware and pay attention. Caution lights mean a bus is stopping, and Mr Cicchesi said it would be smart to teach students learning to drive the indicator lights on buses, along with the other rules of the road.

By Eliza Hallabeck When former Superintendent of Schools Joseph V. Erardi, Jr, arrived in the district, the Sandy Hook Elementary School building was still in development. Before retiring at the end of July, Dr Erardi reflected on what the district has learned from the last year of running the new building. Dr Erardi began his time in Newtown in April 2014, after the Board of Education voted unanimously to hire him as the new superintendent. He had been serving as the superintendent of Southington. Former Superintendent of Schools John Reed had been serving as interim superintendent in the district since May 2013. But one of Dr Erardi’s first memories comes from before his official time as superintendent began that April. He remembers attending a school board meeting at Reed Intermediate School. “There was a circle of at least 35 to 40 people. I knew no one,” Dr Erardi said. Svigals + Partners company principal Barry Svigals and associate principal Julia McFadden were presenting elements of the design concepts for the building at the meeting. “There was a video that they shared that embraced the environment and nature. It was about nature, it was about water, it was about the Hook, and they were looking for community input on what the new school would represent.” Before starting, Dr Erardi said he also met with Sandy Hook School staff to get a sense of time, space,

A Year In A New School Building

The new Sandy Hook Elementary School building opened to the public ahead of the 2016-17 school year. —Bee file photo and “where they were.” When he started as superintendent Dr Erardi said the location had already been set and the “architectural plans were rolling.” “We were still three years out from the return to Sandy Hook,” said Dr Erardi. “So that’s where I began.” Dr Erardi said he learned quickly he was lucky to have Gino Faiella as the district’s facilities director, to follow Dr Reed’s interim position as superintendent, and to have the Public Building & Site Commission Chair Bob Mitchell. “I learned very, very quickly this

project would be [overseen] with microscopic eyes from across the country,” said Dr Erardi. Before the building opened for the 2016-17 school year, Dr Erardi said the district worked “really hard” to create relationships with the media. The last Friday in July 2016, Dr Erardi asked gathered members of the media for respect ahead of the first day of school. “I knew there needed to be a comfort zone within the school,” said Dr Erardi, which was why open house dates were planned for local community members. “We

were able to establish all of that as a precursor to the opening day, and the media was respectful.” On the opening day of 2016-17, Dr Erardi said teachers taught and students learned. “To me there has never been a more descriptive, positive adjective than uneventful. It was an uneventful opening day at Sandy Hook. I am just so thankful to so many that allowed us to get there,” said Dr Erardi. Looking back over the school year, Dr Erardi said from a structural perspective the building has been “good.” The district knew

additional “hands” would be needed to help the building run, and Dr Erardi said an additional position was filled to accommodate cleaning and landscaping needs. “The intent of Sandy Hook Elementary School was to offer a warm and nurturing environment for students, yet to have the highest grade level of safety and security than any other elementary school in the country,” said Dr Erardi. “I think to all of those planners, they did an extraordinary job of accomplishing that task. It presents as a beautiful school, with nature embedded.” Dr Erardi said he also knows it is a “very safe school.” When asked if there were any lessons from the last year of the building being open, Dr Erardi said a number of other districts have visited the school to learn from the safety and security aspects of the building. Sandy Hook School now serves as a model for safety and security, Dr Erardi said. “When you are designing a new construction, you have to look at safety as ongoing. The plan is never complete. You build a percentage point at a time. The only time you should really be concerned is when you stop being concerned about safety and security,” said Dr Erardi. From a teaching and learning perspective, Dr Erardi said it has spaces for students designed for learning, like the atrium behind the school. The school is a building of which the state of Connecticut should “be awfully proud of, the gift they sent to Newtown,” said Dr Erardi.

Building On 2016-17 School Year Memories For Next Year By Julia Preszler According to former Newtown Superintendent of Schools Joseph V. Erardi, Jr, the 2016-17 school year ended with successes on multiple fronts, from administrative recognition to student academic and artistic achievement. Dr Erardi retired at the end of July and Lorrie Rodrigue, who was serving as the principal at Newtown High School, will act as interim superintendent until the position is filled. “June 2017 ended a year of great successes and celebrations for the district,” he wrote in a July e-mail to the school board announcing his retirement. Three members of the Newtown district staff received statewide recognition: Linda Baron, a fourth grade teacher at Middle Gate Elementary School, won the Connecticut VFW Teacher of the Year Award; Head O’ Meadow school nurse Maddy Allen was chosen as the Connecticut representative in the National Association of Elementary School Principals’ America’s Greatest School Nurse competition; and Dr Rodrigue was named in April as the Connecticut Association of Schools 2017 High School Principal of the Year. Dr Rodrigue was appointed as the district’s interim superintendent by the Board of Education on July 18. “To have those three prestigious awards all in the same year is really special,” Dr Erardi said in an interview July 14. He also pointed to student achievements in the 2016-17 school year. NHS’s music production of Evita gained recognition for students Julia

Bogdanoff and Joseph Verga, who won Outstanding Leading Actress and Outstanding Leading Actor from the Connecticut High School Musical Theater Awards. Dr Erardi also said the graduating Class of 2017 excelled academically. “The graduating Class of 2017, I believe, administrators believe, and teachers believe, had an enormous upside. It was a highly talented and highly skilled class,” he said. Newtown Middle School Principal Thomas Einhorn said the middle school saw much success among its extracurricular activities. “This year under the leadership of Ken Kantor and Tracy Milligan we formed our Unified Sports Program with great success. Our literary magazine, which is comprised of students’ work, won a prestigious national award,” Mr Einhorn said, referring to the 2017 announcement that the literary magazine, Opus Optima, earned superior rank from the National Council of Teachers of English in its 2016 Program to Recognize Excellence. At the elementary level, Dr Erardi believes the opening of the new Sandy Hook Elementary School building for the 2016-17 school year went smoothly, with multiple open houses the prior summer designed for students and parents to get accustomed to the building. Sandy Hook teachers and students had been housed at Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe since 12/14. “That needed to be done with dignity and done with respect to this community,” he said.

Last Year’s Challenges The 2016-17 school year was not without its share of challenges. The school board considered closing NMS and reconfiguring the grades each school housed in order to accommodate a projected decreasing student population. Mr Einhorn said this possibility caused concern for the NMS faculty and staff, along with district students and parents. “This was a challenging time for our school community. We certainly appreciate the large number of parents that spoke in support of the middle school and we also appreciate the Board of Education’s courageous decision to keep the district’s grade configuration as is,” Mr Einhorn said. The school board voted unanimously not to close NMS on December 6. Looking Forward Looking to the 2017-18 school year, Dr Erardi expects that the school board will continue to address the issue of student population. “The school board is willing to really try to embrace and wrap hard work around enrollment. Is the district still declining? Is there a real decline, have we leveled off, and if we’re anticipating extra space, how do we best utilize that extra space?” he said. A large change for the upcoming school year comes in the form of later start times for grades five through twelve, which was finalized by the school board on June 20. Dr Erardi said the decision was made by weighing the hopes and concerns of

staff, parents, and students. “I don’t believe [for] a nanosecond that we’re going to have a bright-eyed high school student population, but the eyes will be brighter at 8 am,” Dr Erardi said. Mr Einhorn believes the new start time will be beneficial for middle school students, as well. The change has been positively received by both students and staff, he said. “The middle school certainly appreciates this decision and also thanks the elementary and intermediate school communities for the adjustments that they will have to make to allow this later start to happen,” Mr Einhorn said. Over the next year, Dr Erardi said he hopes the district and the new superintendent continue to follow the method that he believes makes Newtown a successful school district: “Making a difference one student at a time.” Mr Einhorn expressed a similar goal. “The middle school will continue its efforts in the area of personalized learning. Student voice and choice are common themes that we will continue to emphasize in the coming year,” he said. Dr Erardi said he feels confident that the district’s leadership team, including school administrators and central office staff, will succeed after his retirement. “I’ve done my absolute best for the school community and I’m just hoping that whoever comes in next works for the best interest of children,” he said.

Maximize Sleep With New School Start Times

By Alissa Silber After months of sleep study research, the Board of Education officially voted on June 20 to have new start times in effect for Newtown schools for the 2017-2018 school year. As a result, Newtown High School and Newtown Middle School will now begin at 8 am, roughly 40 minutes later than previous years. The decision was made with the intent to help older students benefit from more sleep. Former Newtown resident Dr Jennifer Kanaan works at the University of Connecticut Health Center as an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine. She regularly takes care of adult and pediatric patients in regard to sleep, and provided insight on the topic to the Board of Education members during their deliberation period. “My initial involvement was more broad to try to make sleep education part of the health curriculum,” Dr Kanaan said. It later transformed into her making a presentation at the school district’s Community Forum on School Start Times And Sleep on May 9, where then-School Superintendent Joseph V. Erardi, Jr, introduced her as a “sleep study expert.” In an interview with The Newtown Bee, Dr Kanaan explained just how vital getting enough sleep is to both the body and mind, and shared helpful tips on how older students can make the most of their new school start time.

What Happens During Sleep? “As your body develops, it has different requirements in terms of sleep,” Dr Kanaan explained. Breaking it down by age group, it is recommended that each night preschool age children get 10 to 11 hours, elementary age students get 10 hours, adolescents get 9 to 9½ hours, and adults get 7½ to 8 hours of sleep. Dr Kanaan says that sleep is “an active state” where the body needs to recharge its muscles and allow the brain to process what the person learned throughout the day. Not only is the amount of sleep crucial, but also crucial is the way that sleep is accomplished. “It’s important that the sleep is quality sleep and not fragmented,” she said. The body needs to go through its three stages of sleep, as well as deeper more restorative stages like rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. If the person is not asleep long enough, REM sleep may not be reached and the person will not experience the full benefits of sleep.

Dr Jennifer Kanaan suggests powering down devices, like cellphones, an hour before going to bed to get a more restful sleep at night. —Bee Photo, Silber Poor Sleeping Habits Not getting enough sleep can have immediate and long-term negative effects on the mind and body of a person, especially adolescents. Dr Kanaan says that as children develop through their teenage years, they biologically have a delayed melatonin release and have a delayed internal clock that makes it difficult to adhere to early bedtimes.

When combined with increasing societal pressures to stay up late at night and early morning school start times, many children develop a habit of getting inadequate sleep. “That prolonged, insufficient sleep that they’ve acquired over time can lead to academic difficulties and mental health difficulties [like] an increased risk of depression, suicide, anxiety,” Dr Kanaan said. She also added that it can lead to adolescents being at a higher risk for engaging in behavior that can be termed “risky,” including an increased risk of using drugs, early sexual activity, and motor vehicle accidents. “A number of these criteria actually go down when they change the school start time, like decreased risk of motor vehicle accidents,” Dr Kanaan said. She cites that, as a result, students whose schools have changed to later start times report having an improved quality of life. Advice For Teens And Parents Knowing the importance of sleep and how it effects so many areas of adolescents’ lives, Dr Kanaan gave helpful tips for how Newtown High School and Newtown Middle School students can maximize the quality of sleep they get with the new school start times. “One of the strong recommendations that I have is that teens should power down their devices at least an hour before bed time — that can’t be emphasized enough,” Dr Kanaan said. She understands that it can be difficult since

electronics are so mobile and have the ability to be taken everywhere, including the bedroom, but says that changing this habit makes a big impact on sleep. Parents in particular need to emphasize powering down those devices and a great way to do that is for them to be an example for the child. “You want to be a role model for your children,” Dr Kanaan said. In addition to eliminating the use of mobile electronics, removing larger items like televisions and work computers from bedrooms is also helpful. Ultimately, Dr Kanaan said a bedroom should be a comfortable place for a child to relax, where it is not too hot or too cold and is noise-free. “Another important thing is to have quiet time at least an hour before bedtime,” Dr Kanaan said. “Try not to exercise too close to bedtime.” As for weekends, it may be tempting to veer from the weekday schedule by going to bed and waking up later than usual, but Dr Kanaan advises keeping the time a person wakes up to vary no more than an hour. “In terms of what time to go to bed, you want to think of what time you are getting up and back your clock up from there,” Dr Kanaan added. Parents looking to get their children acclimated to the new school start times should start having their child gradually adjust their sleep schedule two weeks prior to the first day of school. That way it is not a shock when they go back to school and, as Dr Kanaan says, they can be “an effective learner right off the bat, from day one.” Supported Change Already more schools have reached out to Dr Kanaan for her input on making the change to later school start times for their district, as more research is providing evidence on its positive impact in adolescent’s lives. The later school start times movement is also being supported by a number of national organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Sleep Foundation. “I am so impressed with the school board, Dr Erardi, and the entire Newtown community for taking this positive step forward and really being a leader in the State of Connecticut in terms of school start times,” Dr Kanaan said. Not only that, she added, “I think what they are going to find is that students are much more ready to learn.”

Newtown Public Schools Overview For 2017-18 Bus Routes

The following bus routes and announcements were provided by All-Star Transportation and the Newtown Public Schools district for publication, with updates as of August 15.

A Change In School Start Times School start times for the Newtown Public Schools have changed for the upcoming 2017-18 school year. Both Newtown High School and Newtown Middle School have been changed, and they will begin at 8 am with dismissal at 2:32 pm. Reed Intermediate School will be combined with the elementary school routes this year. The elementary school times have not changed and will run from 9:05 am to 3:37 pm. Reed’s times will run from 9:05 am to 3:37 pm. Buses will drop off at each of the elementary schools at approximately 8:45 am, then proceed to drop off at Reed. In the afternoon, buses will shuttle Reed students to the elementary school in their district, then students will transfer to their neighborhood bus to go home. St Rose of Lima School does not have a change in its times this year. St Rose hours are from 7:50 am to 2:50 pm. Parents may call the Newtown Public Schools, Office of the Superintendent, at 203-4267621 for further questions. Please Note: The bus schedules are subject to revision due to enrollment changes such as transfers, address changes, or additional registrations. Any changes or additions will be posted to the school district’s website, newtown.k12.ct.us, and residents are encouraged to check the website, often. The time printed with each bus route is the approximate time the bus will make its first pickup in the morning. Adjustments will be made as necessary and as soon as possible. Please do not worry if a bus is late. It generally takes a few days for kindergarten children and new students to become accustomed to the bus routes and schedules. Students should be at the appropriate stops 10 minutes before the time listed on the bus route. The stop times can vary 10 minutes either way, depending on traffic, weather, and the number of students riding the bus. Overview Of School Bus Expectations & Policies For Newtown Bus Routes The 2017-18 school bus routes for the Newtown Public/Private Schools are listed under the school that the students will be attending. Residents are asked to share issues or concerns with their child’s bus stop location by calling All-Star Transportation at 203304-9778. Parents of kindergarten students attending Newtown public elementary schools should check their school and district websites for information about early dismissal days (for example: conferences and early release days). The primary website is www.newtown.k12. ct.us.

Please call AllStar Transportation, 203-304-9778, with questions. In the afternoon, Henry Abbott Tech students ride home direct from Henry Abbott Tech on Buses 34 & 35 to Newtown High and Newtown Middle Schools to ride buses home. Drop-offs at locations other than home require approval. Please call All-Star at 203304-9778 with questions. For weather-related delayed openings, buses and times will follow Newtown’s schedule, regardless if Henry Abbott Tech opens on time. If Newtown closes due to inclement weather, NO bus service will be available for this school.

Nonnewaug High School In the morning, students will ride shuttle routes to Newtown Middle School where they transfer onto Bus 50 to Nonnewaug High School. In the afternoons, students will be picked up at Nonnewaug by All-Star Transportation and returned to town. Parents may opt to pick up their child at a central location in town; however, prior arrangements must be made with All-Star Transportation, 203-3049778. All-Star cannot drop students unless the appropriate arrangements are made. For weather-related delayed openings, buses and times will follow Newtown’s schedule, regardless if Nonnewaug opens on time. If Newtown closes due to inclement weather, NO bus service will be available for this school.

Danbury Magnet School In the morning, Danbury Magnet students should meet at either the front of Reed School or at the Exit 9 commuter lot. Bus 42 will depart Reed at approximately 7:55 am and should arrive at the Exit 9 commuter lot for 8:05 am. In the afternoon they will be picked up and returned to town, first at the Exit 9 commuter lot (3:50 pm), then at the front of Reed school. If the student requires transportation to meet the Magnet bus at Reed, please call All-Star at 203-304-9778. For weather-related delayed openings, buses and times will follow Newtown’s schedule, regardless if Danbury opens on time. If Newtown closes due to inclement weather, NO bus service will be available for this school. In the afternoon, Danbury Magnet students ride back to Newtown on Bus 38. There are two stops in the afternoon at the Exit 9 commuter lot and the front of Reed Intermediate School. Drop-off times may vary due to traffic on I-84. Please call All-Star at 203-3049778 with questions. Fraser Woods and Housatonic Valley Schools Parents must contact All-Star Transportation directly at 203-3049778 to arrange transportation. Important Information from All Star Transportation In order to maintain the listed pickup times, the Newtown Public Schools district requests that students be at their bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled pickup time. Students should stand back 10 to 15 feet from the road whenever possible. Students should wait for the school bus to come to a complete stop and for the doors to open before approaching the bus. Children should never run after the bus as it pulls away, as the driver may not see them. If children need to cross in front of the bus they should be instructed to wait until the bus driver nods his/her head to signal it is safe to cross the street. Students should also be instructed to cross at least ten feet in front of the bus, so they can see the driver then the driver can see them. If they should drop something in front of the bus, they should leave it until they get the driver’s attention and permission to retrieve the item. Bus Drop-Off Procedure/Waiver Students in kindergarten through fourth grade must be met at the bus stop by a parent or known adult, or older sibling. If no parent or known adult, or older sibling, is at the bus stop, children will be transported back to their home schools. If a student must be returned to a school, the following policy is in place: Reed students will be returned to Reed School and elementary students will be returned to their elementary school. If siblings being returned are from both Reed and an elementary school, both students will be returned to the elementary school together. If a family chooses, a waiver may be signed allowing its first through fourth grade children to disembark from the bus even if no adult is there to meet the children. No waivers for kindergarten students will be accepted. Please check the child’s school web page for the complete procedure and download the waiver. If parents have any questions regarding the transportation schedule, e-mail alan.colangelo@all-startransportation.com or call AllStar Transportation at 203-304-9778. For drop-off waivers, see your child’s school web page for complete information regarding afternoon drop-off procedures. Bus Waivers/Stop Change Forms Each school had sent these to parents and requested that they be completed and returned to the schools. If any parent has not yet done so, please get them to the school their child will be attending as soon as possible (elementary schools only). Bus Waivers: Applies only to students in grades first to fourth grades. No waiver to get off of a bus unattended will be accepted for any kindergarten student. The waiver is intended to allow the bus to release a student if no adult is visibly present. All-Star does not know if there is an adult present based on if a car is parked in the driveway. The bus driver needs to base this on if they do not visibly see an adult present. Stop Change Form: If any family has moved or a student will be getting on/off at a stop different from the home address on a daily basis, this form must be completed. A stop change form is not intended to specify where someone wants a stop; it is solely for notification that their child will not get on/off the regularly scheduled stop, but rather at another regularly scheduled stop. Bus Stops/Expectations Students should be out at the bus stop about 10 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. Times change slightly based on a number of factors (road conditions, weather, students at previous stops not there, etc). Students should not be inside the house at the top of driveways waiting to put coats on when the bus arrives. When the bus stops, students should be ready to board immediately. The school bus is an extension of the classroom and students are expected to maintain behavior acceptable in a classroom setting. It helps the driver out tremendously if parents would go over these

behavior expectations to promote a safe, hassle-free ride for all students. Students should never cross in front of a bus without a visible signal from the driver that it is safe to do so. Likewise, no student should ever run toward/from the rear or alongside of a bus. A driver may not see a student in some danger zone blind spots. If a student drops something, never run up to the side of the bus to retrieve it. There is a danger zone around a bus where a driver may not see the student in a mirror. Always yell out to get the driver’s attention if you need them to remain stopped for any reason. Bus Conduct Expectations 1. Demonstrate respectful conduct as in the classroom. 2. Be courteous, kind, do not use profanity. 3. Refrain from eating or drinking on the bus. 4. Keep the bus clean. 5. Cooperate with the driver. 6. Do not smoke (this includes electronic cigarettes/vaping.) 7. Be respectful of equipment and others’ belongings. 8. Remain seated until the bus is stopped completely at the student’s bus stop. 9. Keep head, hands, and feet inside the bus. 10. The bus driver is authorized to assign seats. For the Reed and elementary buses, grade level seating is enforced with youngest grades at the front of the bus and Reed students at the rear of the bus. ALL-STAR TRANSPORTATION/NEWTOWN PUBLIC SCHOOLS Transportation Information The primary objective of the school bus transportation system is to provide safe bus transportation for the students of the Newtown. Courtesy and good manners are essential in achieving this objective. Full cooperation in adhering to the following rules and regulations is necessary. Please review the following rules and regulations with your children before the first day of school. 1. The driver of the bus is in full charge of the bus and all students riding therein. This includes assigning seats. This should not be considered punitive, simply an effort to ensure student comfort and safety. 2. Students must take a seat when they enter the bus and remain seated until their designated stop. They should get on and off the bus only when it is fully stopped, and the driver has acknowledged them. 3. Reasonable conversation is permitted. No disruptive behavior, bullying, indecent or profane language shall be permitted on the bus. 4. Conversation with the driver is prohibited while the vehicle is moving. 5. The use of tobacco, alcohol, or drugs on the bus is prohibited. 6. Students must not throw paper, hats, snowballs, or other objects in, at, or about the bus. 7. Bus windows shall not be opened without permission from the driver. 8. Students shall assist in keeping the bus clean and orderly and shall refrain from damaging or abusing the bus, its cushions, padding, or other equipment. 9. Students who damage or deface any bus or any equipment on any bus shall be liable for such damage. If a student is found to have damaged the bus, full restitution for the repair will be expected. 10. The emergency door is to be kept free and available at all times. 11. Upon entering or leaving the bus, students shall avoid crowding or in any way disturbing others. 12. Students will not be allowed to cross the street, on a double yellow lined road, after exiting from the bus. For the student’s safety, no student shall climb over or around the forward safety arm. 13. In the event a student drops personal items, step away from the bus, make eye contact with the driver and wait for directions on how to reclaim items. DO NOT attempt to get them on their own! 14. For the safety of all students, no eating is allowed while on the bus. The advent of food allergies requires this action to prevent possible adverse reactions. Penalties For Violation Any student who violates any of these regulations may be prohibited from riding the bus either temporarily or permanently by the school principal and may be suspended from school or subjected to such other disciplinary action as deemed proper by the administration. To ensure proper discipline on the buses, all buses are now equipped with video and audio cameras. Safety Notes For Parents 1. Parents are not allowed to board school buses without prior approval from All-Star Transportation. 2. If your child misses the bus, drive him/her to school. Do not follow the bus and have your child run alongside the bus to board it. This is extremely dangerous and is prohibited. 3. When buses are parked with their lights activated, and they are loading or unloading students, it is illegal for an automobile or any other vehicle to pass through their lights. This includes buses parked and loading or unloading both on the road, any public or private parking lot, and in the school yard. Any vehicles observed passing through the flashing lights of any bus will be reported directly to the Newtown Police Department, Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles, and Newtown Board of Education and will be subject to a $450 fine, under Connecticut State Law, Title 14, and Section 279. Buses will be sporadically fitted with cameras that will take pictures of violators. 4. The bus driver needs to focus on driving the bus and providing safe transport. If you have any concerns regarding the operation of your child’s school bus, please contact All-Star at 203-304-9778. The bus stops listed will indicate the bus number and nearest stop to the student’s home. Be sure to check both morning and afternoon routes, as the bus number may not be the same for both runs.

Your Child’s Vision! School eye exams are only screenings and do not test for everything. They may test for distance vision in each eye separately, but do not test for near vision (reading) or how the two eyes work together as a unit. According to Prevent Blindness America, vision problems affect one out of every four school-age children. "If a child is struggling in school, it may well be an indication of a vision problem," says Dr. Joseph Young of Village Eye Care. Dr. Young tests for ocular problems that can impact learning and development. He also stresses the importance of proper eye movements, and the ability to read and comprehend. We have worked with many children whose reading and writing skills have greatly improved. Another concern for parents is sports vision. According to Prevent Blindness America, there are 40,000 ocular sports related injuries per year. Dr. Young has many solutions for your "sports child", from contacts to REC SPECS Sports Eyewear. Please visit our web site for more information, and we hope you see that an eye exam is part of "getting your child ready for a great school year!"

Kids Backpack Safety List To avoid risk of straining muscles and joints and back pain, encourage your children to:

A B C

D E

F

Choose a lightweight pack. Carry no more than 10%–15% of your body weight. Backpacks should have two wide, padded shoulder straps for comfort. Padded backpacks will protect against sharp edges from inside the bag, like a pencil. Waist belt and multiple compartments help to distribute the weight evenly across the body. If carrying a backpack on your back causes too much discomfort, try a rolling backpack!

Henry Abbott Tech & Nonnewaug Votech Morning Routes 2017-18 Henry Abbott Tech and Nonnewaug students will be picked up by five shuttle buses and brought to Newtown Middle School for 6:40 am where they will transfer onto Bus A to Henry Abbott Tech (HAT) and Van C to Nonnewaug. In the afternoon HAT students will be shuttled from Danbury to either the middle school or high school where they will transfer onto NHS/NMS buses to go home. See the NHS/NMS bus routes for the afternoon bus schedules. When HAT has early dismissal and Newtown has full day, students will be brought directly home. Due to Nonnewaug’s different dismissal times, call All-Transportation for afternoon bus schedules. Please call All-Star Transportation at 203-304-9779 for more information. Parents or Guardians must contact the All-Star Office with any alternate pickup or drop-off locations.

Hawley Elementary School And Reed Intermediate School Bus Routes 2017-18 Pick-up and drop-off times are computer generated; therefore you must allow a 5- to 10-minute variation to published times. Pick-up and drop off times and stop locations are subject to change due to changing enrollment and traffic conditions. Students are to wait back 10 feet from the curb and must wait for the school bus to come to a complete stop before moving toward the bus. Students that cross the road must look both ways for traffic and must wait for the driver’s signal (head nod) before crossing the road. Morning routes are listed first, and afternoon routes follow.

Head O’ Meadow Elementary School And Reed Intermediate School Bus Routes 2017-18 Pick-up and drop-off times are computer generated; therefore you must allow a 5- to 10-minute variation to published times. Pick-up and drop-off times and Stop Locations are subject to change due to changing enrollment and traffic conditions. Students are to wait back 10 feet from the curb and must wait for the school bus to come to a complete stop before moving toward the bus. Students that cross the road must look both ways for traffic and must wait for the driver’s signal (head nod) before crossing the road. Morning routes are listed first, and afternoon routes follow.

Middle Gate Elementary And Reed Intermediate School Bus Routes 2017-18 Pick-up and drop-off times are computer generated; therefore you must allow a 5- to 10-minute variation to published times. Pick-up and drop-off times and stop locations are subject to change due to changing enrollment and traffic conditions. Students are to wait back 10 feet from the curb and must wait for the school bus to come to a complete stop before moving toward the bus. Students that cross the road must look both ways for traffic and must wait for the driver’s signal (head nod) before crossing the road. Morning routes are listed first, and the afternoon routes follow.

Sandy Hook Elementary School And Reed Intermediate School Bus Routes 2017-18 Pick up and drop off times are computer generated; therefore you must allow a 5- to 10-minute variation to published times. Pick up and drop off times and stop locations are subject to change due to changing enrollment and traffic conditions. Students are to wait back 10 feet from the curb and must wait for the school bus to come to a complete stop before moving toward the bus. Students that cross the road must look both ways for traffic and must wait for the driver’s signal (head nod) before crossing the road. Morning routes are listed first, and the afternoon routes follow.

48 - Back To School 2017

The Newtown Bee - August 18, 2017

Art Classes Offer A Colorful Array Of Lessons By Eliza Hallabeck Under the guidance of district art teachers, local students learn history, color theory, design concepts, and more each year. The district’s four elementary schools each host art night celebrations and gallery events at the end of the school year to display both student art and what the students learn throughout the year. For each of the celebratory art exhibits, student artwork lines the walls and students and parents tour the schools. Newtown Middle School also hosts its annual Student Showcase near the end of the school year, and annually the event highlights student art along with creativity from other disciplines, like music. District art teachers Kim Hossler, Jean Walter, Donna Perugini, and Michelle Ginand all created images for publication in this year’s Back to School special edition of The Newtown Bee for students to use as inspiration ahead of the new year. Each of the images was created based on a lesson the teachers offer in their classes. Ms Hossler said elementary school students are encouraged to bring their colored-in drawings to school for the start of the new school year for possible exhibits. For her submission, Ms Hossler, who teachers at Hawley Elementary School and Sandy Hook Elementary School, was inspired by the first lesson she oversees for her students each school year. “Students design the covers of their art portfolios during their first art lesson each school year,” Ms Hossler said. “For grades one through four, the project includes creating a special design for the lettering of their names. Letters/typography as art is also touched on throughout the year as students design posters to promote kindness, welcome visiting authors, or celebrate school events.” Ms Hossler created two versions of the word “art,” published here for students to color, as an example of that lesson. “Colors, patterns, and textures can be introduced into the shapes of the letters (positive shapes) and the spaces between (negative shapes) to add detail and contrast to their designs, and even create the illusion of three-dimensional space,” Ms Hossler said in an e-mail with her submission. “Use your knowledge of art elements and your imaginations to transform the word art into an original masterpiece. Finish the examples provided or start from scratch and invent your own letters.” For her submission, Ms Walter, who teaches art at Sandy Hook School and Middle Gate Elementary School, created an

Kim Hossler said in one lesson her students learn design, typography, and color. This image was created to celebrate that lesson interactive coloring page contribution. “Cubism is a style of art created by Modern artist Pablo Picasso. Cubism shows many angles of an object in one image. Here is an abstracted head in profile for you to create a Cubist portrait,” Ms Walter wrote when submitting her coloring page work. Ms Walter encourages students to use the sample Cubist features she drew as examples to fill in the portrait or to have the students come up with their own features. “Picasso often used unrealistic color in his Cubist portraits and you can too. Have fun and be creative,” Ms Walter wrote. Ms Perugini, who teaches at Hawley and Head O’ Meadow Elementary School, said she uses artist Leonardo da Vinci’s painting “Mona Lisa” as an example for a lesson for younger

Dona Perugini shared this image she created, inspired by artist Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” for students to color in.

students. She has two posters of the painting on display, one at each school. “I go into detail about the painting, regarding the artist— and how he was [inspiration for the name of] a Ninja Turtle, along with three other artists from the time period — her eyes following you, her stately look of sitting tall, the monochromatic colors used, hands folded and mouth with a quiet smile,” Ms Perugini said in a description for her submission. “I also use many color activities after an art unit, or for extra fun time, if students have completed tasks for class. They love doing these and recreating, using their own color scheme. We usually use color pencil and I save them in their folders to work on throughout the school year.” The lesson overall, Ms Perugini said, reinforces the district

Jean Walter invites students to be creative with her image of a head in profile in the Cubist style.


The Newtown Bee - August 18, 2017 stand of “Students will be able to understand that art is the essential core which reflects, records and shapes the history and development of cultures” and the standard “connecting/recognizes and responds to works of art in time and history.” “Mona Lisa” is also an inspiration for a behavior lesson for students in kindergarten to second grade. Ms Perugini said she uses the painting as a signal for students to be quiet by saying, “Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa quiet!” Her students then repeat the saying and know that their lips should be locked and it is time to listen for directions. Ms Ginand teaches at Reed Intermediate School, and for her submission she shared an image she created of a mandala. “In the fifth grade we do the Zendala project,” Ms Ginand said. “Students will learn about the significance and symbolism of the mandala in various cultures. It is a symbol of meditation, protection, and healing. In Sanskrit, mandala means both circle and center. Its thought to represent both the visible world around us and eternal world within our mind and bodies.” Ms Ginand said the fifth graders create their own mandalas and use line and pattern designs, called Zentangles, to decorate the inner spaces. “Zentangles are thought to relax the mind and increase focus and creativity,” Ms Ginand said. Students are encouraged to use these pages for inspiration and to color in each of the designs. Art teacher Kim Hossler was inspired by the first lesson she oversees with her students each year to create this image for students to color.
