New Year, New Procedures, New Classes

We are about to get off to a fresh start! A new year brings many new opportunities. The New Year is a great time for us to take a look at ourselves and embrace the good we see. . . and change a few things that don’t feel as comfortable. The same opportunities ring true for Community Education offerings for youth! This fall we made some significant changes to our after school safety procedures to add a greater sense of safety and security and to help keep your participation fees affordable. Please see page 23 for a complete explanation of parent procedures. Feel free to contact the Community Education office before your child’s class begins if you have any questions about these procedures. Also be sure that you are providing an email address that you check regularly with each registration, as this is how we will send you procedure reminders and other important information about classes. On the following pages, sprinkled in with the favorite classes that continue to get great evaluations from parents and participants, you will find a variety of new class offerings. Some are so new that the details have not yet been confirmed! We’ll send details out to families through student flyers or parent listservs if the offering is available at your child’s school and/or age level. You can also visit our website at www.priorlake-savage.k12.mn.us for current listings. We are looking forward to these fresh new offerings and hope that you and your children will share our excitement! Remember, most of our class ideas come from our families, so please feel free to contact me directly with any new ideas or questions. Thanks for participating in our programs! Carrie Dobie, Youth Programs Coordinator

This Prior Lake Players (PLP) Community theatre hands-on program will involve you in a total dramatic arts experience. Using the Plays-To-Go curriculum, PLP members will guide you through the complete process of creating and producing a one-act play. Participants will be divided into small groups to form production companies that will then write, produce, direct, and act in their own plays. In the process, you will learn all the roles of the theater; playwriting, directing, and producing, plus the more practical roles of set designer, stage manager, costume manager, tech director, etc. Initially, you will participate in staged readings of three plays, The News Conference, The Monster, and The Team. These plays are specifically designed to give you insight into playwriting and the other roles of play production and show you how your production company might operate. Afterwards you will be further guided and instructed in the art of playwriting. After the plays have been written, either on your own or in collaboration with other participants, your production company will choose the play it wants to produce. Each company will have two Saturdays to rehearse before performing them for the public. #2855 Saturdays, Jan. 12-March 9 9:30am-Noon Performance: March 9 11:00am 9 Sessions $99 TOMS Auditorium Instructors: Prior Lake Players Members

Early Registration is Requested If minimum enrollment requirements for Community Ed classes have not been met a few days prior to the class’s scheduled start date, the classes will need to have to be cancelled. While we try to wait as long as possible to cancel a class, minimum numbers of participants are required for our self-supporting community education program. Out of the fees collected, instructors, monitors, supplies and custodians have to be paid. If we fall below the minimum required, we are simply unable to run a class. Late registrations that often could have been the difference in whether or not a class runs are not only disappointing to us but even more so to the kids that are looking forward to their classes. Please register early; it will mean less disappointment for your family, and less frustration for other families as well!

Survey Ranks PLSAS as one of the Top 10 School Districts in the Metro The results are in!

In fact, the results place us amongst the top 10 school districts in the Twin Cities in the areas of: - providing a high-quality education - quality teaching staff - sound financial management - leadership of school board, superintendent and administration - effective communications This past summer, Decision Resources conducted a scientific phone survey that included 400 randomly selected adult resi­dents.

When residents were asked to rate the quality of education provided by Prior LakeSavage Area Schools, 91 percent gave an excellent or good rating. According to Decision Resources this rating places our district in the top 10 percent of schools in the metro for providing qual­ity education to students. In the area of finance, 58 percent rate PLSAS’ financial management as excellent or good. According to Decision Resources, 45 percent is a more typical rating in other metro school districts. For job performance, 89 percent rated teachers and support staff’s job performance as either excellent or good. Seventy-nine percent rated the school board’s job performance as either excellent or good, and administration and superintendent ratings garnered 73 percent as excellent or good. According to Decision Resources, our scores place our staff and district leadership amongst the top 10 school districts in the metro that they have surveyed. Our schools continue to possess one of the most effective communications systems in the Metropolitan Area, according to Decision Resources. While 29 percent of residents said they prefer to receive information from the local newspaper, 64 percent prefer one of the current district communications channels, either print or electronic. A new question on our survey dealt with technology. Eighty-five percent of residents told us that technology is either absolutely essential or very important for our students. When rating technology opportunities for students, 78 percent listed them as excellent or good. To view the entire survey results, visit our website: www.priorlake-savage.k12.mn.us.

• Provide an accessible daytime phone number and an additional emergency contact when registering your child for programs. • For After School Classes, please include your child’s teacher’s name, your child’s typical after school routine, and bus number if applicable. • Please notify the Community Education Office at 952.226.0080 as soon as possible if your child will not be attending a session of a class for which they are registered. • If someone other than a parent will be picking up your child from class, please let the instructor and/or a Community Education staff person know ahead of time. • Drop off your child in the classroom on time each session. • Elementary After School CE Participants will be dismissed from their elementary classroom to Kids’ Company (KC) Staff. Students will eat snack (provided by CE) with KC. CE class instructors will pick up registered class participants from Kids’ Company. • Pick up your child in the classroom at the class ending time. If you cannot pick up on time, you are expected to make other arrangements for your child ahead of time. Late pickups are subject to a fee. • Inform the instructor AND a Community Education staff person of any allergies, special needs, or behavioral concerns that may help us to provide the best environment and instruction for your child and the other students enrolled. • The behavior of students is expected to be appropriate for the class learning environment. The instructor and Community Education staff reserve the right to dismiss students immediately, without a refund, when behavior is not appropriate or jeopardizes the safety of them or other students. Should this become necessary, parents will be contacted and expected to pick up children immediately. Please Note: These procedures have been modified for Winter 2013.
