While school districts still conduct fire and tornado drills, over the past decades now our safety plans include how to address the issues of lockdowns, evacuations, and intruder alerts. A little over a month has passed since the horrific tragedy at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida and since then another school shooting has taken place in recent days in Maryland. Sadly this is our new reality. Like most schools across the country, the Jesup Community School District has an Emergency Response Handbook that addresses a wide variety of emergency scenarios to ensure that our staff understand how to respond when an incident occurs. This handbook is reviewed annually with staff and approved by the school board. This handbook is not available for public access as we want to ensure that in the event of an intruder or dangerous event, that the perpetrator would not have access to our plans. This month our teachers and administrators will spend a portion of their professional development training focused on reviewing and discussing our school safety procedures. It is our intent to make sure that all of our staff understand our procedures as well as has the opportunity to provide feedback to ensure that we have the most appropriate procedures in place. All school districts do their absolute best in working to provide the safest and securest environment for students to learn, but no system is foolproof. We are fortunate in our set up at Jesup that we are a one building campus with all students under one roof excluding our three rural schools. The three rural schools are secured during the school day and their staff have safety procedures to follow in their buildings as well. Our preschool through 12th grade campus in town has many strong security features. All entrances to the building are monitored by the building secretary and are only accessible with a key fob or by being buzzed in by the building secretary through an intercom and camera system. The district has nearly 40 cameras placed throughout the school buildings that are monitored by each building office and has the capability to review recorded footage. Additionally we have a very strong relationship with our local and area law enforcement agencies. A couple of years ago we met with the local police department, county sheriff s office, state patrol, and Department of Criminal Investigation officers where we toured the school facilities, discussed our school safety procedures, and provided them a copy of our safety materials. Since then we have opened our school doors on non-school days for law enforcement to conduct active shooter trainings with multiple agencies. Our local police officers have a regular presence on campus before and after school as well as making frequent visits throughout the school day and during school events. We truly value these strong partnerships. As a school district we will continue to review our plans, seek the best solutions to ensure school safety, and provide continued opportunities for our staff to be trained in how to prepare for a multitude of school safety issues, and in the unfortunate event that an issue arise, be prepared to respond confidently to ensure a safe environment for all of our students. 1

2 Summer Driver Education Enrollment period - April 26 May 15 Enrollment forms will be available in the offices of Jesup High School and Middle School, as well as Don Bosco and St. Athanasius School offices. First Session dates will be June 1, 2018 through July 3, These dates are based on enrollment of 28 students. First session would include one Saturday to allow for completion before July 4th. Second Session dates will be July August 8, This would also include one Saturday. The dates for second session are based on enrollment of 28 students. Driving sessions will be assigned. Classroom sessions will be on weekday mornings from 7:00 a.m. -9:00 a.m. Students must have a valid driving permit in order to be eligible for the class. Student applicants will be enrolled on the basis of age oldest students receive priority, until class capacity is reached. 4 th Grade Caring / Citizenship Projects Kara Backes, 4 th Grade Teacher For several years now, our 4 th grade classes have participated in two ongoing, year-round projects that really emphasize the Caring and Citizenship Pillars of Character by helping others in the community at large. You can help, too! Here s how 1. Hand in used markers to our school! Yes, as part of the Crayola ColorCycle program, Jesup Elementary collects markers that no longer work. These markers are sent to a facility where they are converted into clean fuel to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals, and more! The program accepts ANY brand name and even dry erase markers and highlighters, too. Simply send your dried up markers to school and have them directed to Mrs. Backes 4 th grade classroom. Since we started participating in this program in December 2014, we've sent in over 7, 500 markers!!! 2. Collect pull tabs! Any aluminum pull tab, including from a soda can or a can of soup, can be collected to benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Iowa City. These tabs are then recycled with the proceeds going to cover the cost of caring for a family staying at the home. Once again, to help just send your pop tabs into the elementary school. Our main coordinator and collector of tabs is Mrs. BH in 4 th grade. Last year our elementary collected 118 pounds of tabs, which averaged to about 1/3 pound per elementary student! Here are some fun pull tab facts from the Ronald McDonald House website. At a recycling rate of $0.30 to $0.60 per pound, it takes almost 235 pounds of pop tabs to cover the cost a family for ONE night at RMHC-EIWI. If a magnet sticks, it s not aluminum. Run a magnet over pop tabs and pick out items that stick to the magnet. The tab contains more aluminum than the entire can! 10,433 empty aluminum beverage cans weigh as much as Shaquille O Neal. Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television for 3 hours. Thanks in advance for your help with these projects!! 2

4 Rural Students Take ELPA21 Assessment Holly Reiling, Perry #1 Teacher In March, many of the rural students took the ELPA21 Assessment. ELPA21 is the English Proficiency Assessment that measures how well students read, write, speak, listen and understand English. The main purpose of ELPA21 is to qualify students for appropriate language services and help guide schools to best support students needs. It determines whether students receive the extra help he or she may need to fully participate and be successful in school. Students need to be classified as proficient in all areas to be exited from the ELL program. Once a student is proficient, he or she will no longer receive specialized English language services, but may continue to receive some additional support and will be monitored for two year. As rural teachers of ELL students, we work hard to provide our students with the skill they need to become proficient. We fully submerge our students in English and try to provide them as many opportunities throughout the school day to read, write, speak and listen in English. For more information about the ELPA21 assessment and guidelines visit Star Lab Donny Wachendorf, First Grade Teacher The first graders and kindergartners had a great experience getting to use the Star Lab. Mrs. Thoreson lead the children on their trip through the outer space! First grade continued our conversations with our science standards. While in the Star Lab they expanded upon the work we ve done with the phases of the moon. We have also been talking about the pattern of the sun and how it moves across the sky throughout the day. Mrs. Thoreson also got to teach them about the stars and constellations. Here is what a couple students thought about the experience! Justin said, I will never forget the days that we get to go to the star lab. Logan said, I love the star lab!. If you have taken part in the star lab it s awesome! I still remember when I was a kid in elementary and got to use it. 4

5 Homework Help Strategy Shelby Douglas, 4 th Grade Teacher As a parent, you ve probably had to deal with your child and homework. I would also venture to say that it s not always a pleasurable experience. Well, here s a strategy that can prove to be very helpful. One of the biggest obstacles for students is the idea that homework takes forever. No one likes to undergo a task with an undefined stopping point. Kids are no different. Parents also need to know that there is an end to working on homework for the night. Step 1- Deter mine the estimated average time the school suggests grade levels to assign homework for. Fourth grade is minutes per day, 3-4 times a week. (You can find the information for your specific grade level in the student handbook, page 13) Step 2- Get a timer (or use a clock, cell phone) I highly recommend investing in a timer that is used only for the purpose of homework, but that s not critical to the success of this program. Step 3- Choose a time at home that works for you and your child to do homework. Try to have a consistent time every day, if possible. Also, choose a place that your child can work that is in an area that you can monitor. Step 4- There are two possibilities for this step. You can either set the timer for the maximum time allowed or break it up into increments. Some students can handle working hard for the 45 minutes; others may need to work in shorter periods. Keep in mind that either way you choose to do it, two rules must be followed. First, they have to be working hard and be on task the entire time (This is why you may want to break it into 15 min. intervals; 5-10 min for younger children). Secondly, IF they have worked hard the entire time and your overall time runs out (45 minutes for fourth grade), then homework should be over for the night. *They can t count time if they are constantly asking you for help or complaining. It s okay that they ask for your help, but they need to do the work, or you can agree to sit with them and help them through a really difficult assignment. Keys to success: Be consistent. Establishing the routine and sticking to all of the steps is vital to this working. Don t engage in power struggles. If the child does not get the work done in the allotted time, DO NOT reset the timer or addon more time. (Remember, YOU need an end to the homework as well) As hard as it may be, let your child face the natural consequences of not getting his/her homework in on time. Be sure to communicate with your child s teacher that you are using this strategy and that your child chose not to work and get it done. They may face a consequence at school or their grade may suffer, but the child needs to see what the natural consequences are to his or her choice. Try to keep emotion out of the process. State the expectations clearly and stick to them. If you have any questions about this, feel free to me at Good luck and don t be afraid to share your success stories with others!

6 Socratic Circles in the Literacy Classroom Bethany Mixdorf, Middle School English Teacher This year, it has been my goal to get 8 th graders to engage in deeper conversations about their dystopian novels and how it relates to their lives today. Every Thursday students are provided with discussion questions that elicit higher order thinking skills, such as themes that are present in their novels and the types of propaganda that are used. They are then challenged to go back to their text and pull evidence to support their conclusions and be able to defend their answers. After their final Socratic Circles, I asked the 8 th grade students what they learned or what they took away from the discussions. I was glad to see that my students are becoming more confident with their speaking and listening skills, along with their ability to argue politely, something that most young adults struggle with. As the year concludes, 8 th graders will still have various opportunities to participate in rich discussion with their peers. Below are Wordles that show what each 8 th grade class got out of the Socratic Circle Discussions. 6

7 Come to the Math Side We have pi! Krista Casillas, High School Math What is pi? Pi (π) is the 16 th letter of the Greek alphabet. In math, pi is the irrational number that represents the ratio of a circle s circumference to its diameter. Since pi is irrational, it cannot be written as a fraction of integers. As a decimal it neither terminates nor repeats. Some commonly used approximations of pi are 3.14 and 22/7. When is pi day? Since pi can be approximated to 3.14, mathematicians celebrate pi day annually on March 14 th (3/14). If that wasn t exciting enough, this also happens to be the birthday of Albert Einstein. Geometry and Pre-Calc students at Jesup celebrated pi day this year with pi themed games, activities, contests and eating some pie! What did you do on pi day? What have we been learning about pi? Geometry classes have just started studying circles. We spent one day discovering pi using M&M candies as a measuring device and various circle sizes to compare ratios of circumference (distance around the circle) to diameter (distance across through the center). We then used this information to calculate circumference for other circles by only measuring their diameter. In Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry we have investigated measuring angles in radians instead of degrees. This makes some calculations much simpler and is a more mathematically pure way to measure angles. What does this have to do with pi? 1 revolution, or 360 o, is equivalent to 2π radians. From this, we then calculated arc length, area of a sector, angular displacement, angular velocity and linear velocity all using our newly found unit of measure. Why pi? The circle is the basis for many human inventions from the wheel of a car to the lens of a telescope. Pi is used in more than calculations of velocities and areas. Translating a circle into the third dimension we have the sphere, the cylinder or even the cone. In an upcoming unit of Geometry, we plan to investigate how to calculate the volumes of these three dimensional figures and discover how this is important for careers in medicine, chemistry, engineering, design, culinary arts, etc. 7

8 6 th Grade Students Headed to Math Bee Megan Schultz, Middle School Math Teacher A select group of Jesup Middle School students have participated in the Central Rivers AEA Math Bee for the past few years and this year is no different. Many of you are probably familiar with the idea of a spelling bee, but how does a math bee work? Students work in teams of 4. Each of the 4 students takes 5 individual tests in the areas of number sense, patterns and functions, geometry and measurement, probability and statistics, and ratios, portions and percents. Each individual test is 10 questions long. Students are given about 10 minutes on each test. Finally all four students will work together to complete a team problem solving test. They are given 15 minutes for the 12 questions on that test. Teams are scored by the adding total of the three highest scores for each individual round plus the score of the team test multiplied by 3. This year Jesup Middle School is sending three teams. The Number Ninjas are made up of Jaxon Alexander, Jack Miller, Natalie Reedy and Natalie Trumbauer. Our next team is the Geek Squad with team members Jacob Althaus, Conner Even, Kelly Kane, and Cale Schissel. The final team, The Prime Number Pandas, consists of Will Schutte, Camille Thorson, Wyatt Vander Werff, and Clare Wright. We have been using our J-Hawk Time to prepare for the competition. We have met for about a half hour every Tuesday since January. They go to local competition on April 24. Teams and individuals scoring in the top 25% will have the opportunity to move on to regional competition held on May 17. So what are the questions like? I included a few from previous tests. Try them for yourself! 1. The 6 th grade 4-H club is planning a campfire with s mores to eat. Each package of chocolate bars will make 24 s mores. Each bag o marshmallows contains enough for 36 s mores. Each package of graham crackers will make 18 s mores. How many packages of each (marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars) will be needed in order to make only complete s mores? 2. A rectangle field has an area of 300 square meters and a perimeter of 80 meters. What is the ratio of the length to width of this field? 3. Sara bough three loaves of bread that cost $2.65 each, a jar of peanut butter for $4.95, and a jar of jelly for $3.99. Her total bill was $ What was the percentage she was charge in sales tax at this store? (Round your answer to the nearest tenth.) 4. A truck carryingg mango juice, tomato juice, and cranberry juice bottles in a ratio of 4:4:3. If there are 1,020 cranberry juice bottles on the truck, then how many juice bottles in total is the truck carrying. Answer Key 1. 3 packages of chocolate bars, 2 packages of marshmallows, and 4 packages of graham crackers 2. 3: % 4. 3,740 juice bottles Senior Citizen Lunch Jesup Community School Cafeteria Wednesday, April 18 11:00 A.M. $3.55 Call (319) , Ext for Reservations. 8

9 Fifth Grade General Music Nichole Knepper, PK-5 General Music Last month, the fifth grade performed in the Middle School Spring Concert. For this concert we focused on learning music from Ireland. We learned an Irish Folk song called Tell My Ma which used Orff Instruments as the accompaniment instead of a piano. Playing Orff instruments provides an opportunity for the students to put their note and rhythm reading skills to use. Although only a few were able to play the instruments for the concert, many students had the opportunity to play them during our concert preparations. They all did a great job! We also learned an Irish Lullaby called Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ral. This song was challenging for a couple different reasons. First because the tempo is slow and has a lot of sustained notes, which requires good breath control and watching the director. Secondly, because the arrangement of the song is called a partner song. A partner song has two different parts that are each sung independently and then ends with both parts singing together. This requires the students to be confident with their singing skills so as to not be lured into singing the other part. Our final piece for the concert was an Irish folk dance called The Bridge of Athlone. We really had fun preparing this dance. I think this was their favorite from the concert! We are currently learning more folk dances from around the world and will hopefully be able to take another trip over to Winding Creek Meadows to share these folk dances with the residents. In other news, fifth grade has for the first time honor choir opportunities. In the fall, students have the opportunity to audition for the Opus Honor Choir, and in the spring we have the Northeast Iowa Choral Director s Association Honor Choir. I am proud to say we have four 5 th grade and four 6 th grade students that will be representing Jesup Middle School at the NEICDA Honor Choir on Tuesday, April 24. These students will go to Oelwein for rehearsals during the day with other students from Northeast Iowa and will perform on a concert that evening.. From the Counselor s Corner: What is Life After 8 th Grade Going to Look Like? Kristen Bauer, 7-12 School Counselor This is a question that the 8 th grade students are exploring in Guidance Class. With the help of My Academic Plan (planyouradventure.net), students have been or will be taking interest inventories, exploring career options, researching colleges and planning for high school. As a class, we have been or will be looking at their desired careers and figuring out what they need to do to get there. By the time 8 th grade curriculum is completed, students will: Take interest inventories on My Academic Plan (MAP) that will link them to careers. Research careers (e.g. description, salary, outlook, education, etc.) using MAP and other career websites. Learn how to determine what type of education (including specific majors) is needed for each career. Learn how to find out which majors are offered at each college. Research colleges (e.g. tuition, enrollment, location, type of college, etc.) using college websites and the Your Course to College booklet provided by Iowa College Aid. Learn how to find admission requirements for colleges. Learn about Jesup graduation requirements. Prepare a 4-year high school plan that will meet Jesup graduation requirements as well as college admission requirements. Learn about goal setting and decision making processes. 8th grade may seem a little soon to start talking about high school, graduation, colleges, and careers, but it is never too early to start planning for the future. Taking the right steps now will only make things easier when the time comes to make decisions in the future. 9

10 Jazz Choir Takes on More Performances Aaron Fitzgerald, 6-12 Vocal Music Director This year, the 6 th Street Edition Jazz Choir has taken on a new form. This group consisting of seven 9-12 female vocalists has had a very busy year. In previous years, the Jesup Jazz Choir performed primarily at the IHSMA state Jazz Choir Festival and home concerts. However, this year we have added new performance opportunities. On Saturday, October 14 th, the Jesup Jazz Choir sang the national anthem at the season opener for the Black Hawk Hockey team. That game broke a season opener attendance record with more than 2,600 spectators. Despite the large crowd and nerves abounding the students exceeded expectations and delivered a stellar performance. On Wednesday, December 13 th, the Jazz Choir traveled to two nursing homes to sing Christmas carols: Winding Creek in Jesup and Bickford in Cedar Falls. The students really enjoyed this opportunity and the residents and workers at the nursing homes were elated to have such wonderful musicians come share their talents. The Jesup Jazz Choir performed at IHSMA State Jazz Choir Festival at Maquoketa Valley High School on Thursday, February 8 at 2:30 pm. The students rehearsed diligently and their hard work paid off. This group received a high division II (Excellent) rating, missing a division I by 3 total points across three ballets. More impressively, this group scored 9 more points than last year. The ensemble s performance was scored higher than any Jazz Choir group in the history of the program. On Saturday, April 7 th, the Jazz Choir will participate in the IHSMA Solo/Ensemble Festival as a mixed women s ensemble. The group will be performing the well-known work, Prayer of the Children arranged by Andrea S. Klouse. The students have enjoyed rehearsing this highly emotional piece and are excited to present this piece to an audience. School will now be in session May 25, May 29, May 30 and May 31. May 25, May 29 and May 30 will be full days of school. May 31 will be a 1:15 p.m. early dismissal. 10

11 INDUSTRIAL TECH. Alex Ruehlow, High School Industrial Technology Teacher It is an exciting time to be in the Jesup Industrial Tech Programs. There are a lot of cool projects going on in almost all of the classes. Metals kids gained a lot of hands-on experience welding. They spent time using Oxygen and Acetylene to make a weld. They also did a bunch of stick welding. Using tap and dye to create bolts and nuts, as well as made a sheet metal tool tray using one piece of sheet metal. I also have students that are enrolled in the Hawkeye Welding class. This is Introduction to Welding Health and Safety, and Introduction to MIG welding as well as a developmental class. Students will get in depth training on the process of short arc, long arc, vertical up and overhead MIG welding. They will also earn credit from Hawkeye upon successful completion of the class. In April two students will be competing at Hawkeye Community College in the welding contest. Students will do a mock job interview, take a written test about welding, and also have to demonstrate a weld. This is a great opportunity for students to apply the skills they have learned into real life situations. The Industrial Tech classes have also been very busy doing projects. Industrial Technology kids are making storage lockers and cedar hose holders for their class project this year. They decided that these would be a great project that they can use woodworking skills. They found a great design that will give them a great deal of hands on with many different tools. The class just got out in the shop and started building. Woods students are building their keepsake boxes. Students will be using different joinery, and woodworking techniques in-order to make a nice keepsake box that they can have for years to come.
