Honors and Awards and yearbooks are coming! We don't want to miss this chance to 1) honor our students who have gone above and beyond in some way and excelled in their learning and their efforts and 2) distribute yearbooks. So...here's the plan: we are putting together awards and yearbooks in mailers and will begin sending those out during the week of June 8. Look for these items in the mail after that date. And thank you to all of our students for sticking together with us during the last 12 weeks of the school year! Your determination and willingness to adapt has been inspiring!

Parents and students--Hard to believe, but we are wrapping up the year next week and we're ready for a Huskie round up! It's time to return Chromebooks & chargers, textbooks, library books, etc. It's also time to bring some closure to this most unusual year and we want to see you off to summer vacation in person. So...all items belonging to the school can be returned on Thursday evening, June 4 between 6-7 PM or Friday, June 5, between 10 AM and 2 PM. All you need to do is drive up to our front doors, stop at the curb, stay in your vehicle, and be ready to hand off your items to a staff member--several of us will be there to take care of you and to see you off for the summer. If neither of those options work for you, we can schedule a visit at a different time. Contact Mr. Keyser at keyser@hemlockps.com if necessary. Those who would need to keep their Chromebooks to complete summer school classes will have a different collection time.

#scienceinaction Wyatt and Lauren made a sweet little nest for a robin’s egg that they found. They weaved grass, shrubs, dandelions and used mud to hold it all together.

Oops! Sorry I missed Monday Morning "Meeting". I've been doing some reading. Here's what I found that makes good sense when it comes to handling the everyday stresses that go along with our stay-at-home order: There are steps anyone can take when feeling anxiety and stress levels rising: Motion. We’ve got to get up every 60-90 minutes and move around. Shoot some basketball. Take walks. Run. Play tennis. We need endorphins to flow. Margin. We must make sure our stress isn’t due to an overcrowded schedule. Be realistic about what can get done each day. Reduce noise or clutter if possible. Mindfulness. Instead of thinking about everything at once, try focusing your mind and breathing. Mono-task, don’t multitask. Pick one thing to get done and then move on to the next thing. Management. Part of handling stress issues is learning to manage stress: limit time on social media; get enough sleep; eat well; practice self-talk.

A Hemlock Middle School teacher could use your support for his Project: Take the Studio Anywhere! Mr. Bohn needs your help to give his students this Canon HD camera to be used in class projects throughout the year. As he explains: My middle school students are an extremely fun and bright group of learners. I find they work best when I give them options for expressing their learning. I have several artistic students who can draw and cartoon like professionals. Others write and express themselves with great feeling. I would like to be able to offer my students more options for expressing their learning. I currently have one video camera with a green screen. This is a popular option for many projects and is a bottleneck for productivity. If I had another camera set up and editing machine, I could double the opportunities for my "techie" and dramatic students to excel and find enjoyment in learning. My Project: Many of my projects in class give the option to record video with green screen effects. Having only one camera and set up currently creates a bottleneck in the flow of students who can select this option. A second camera will double the number of students who can express their learning in their preferred medium. This camera and green screen will allow students to put themselves in any situation or location needed to express their learning. Students can be on the beaches of Normandy, the Sahara Desert, or in the midst of Machu Picchu. I have an older model of this camera so I know it holds up and performs well. To support this classroom effort, you can contribute to the project using this link: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/take-the-studio-anywhere/4837855/?utm_source=dc&utm_medium=directlink&utm_campaign=teacherhub&utm_term=teacher_7161516&rf=directlink-dc-2020-04-teacherhub-teacher_7161516&challengeid=21576344

There's so much you can read about a person when they are physically present with you at school--that is a critical part of interpersonal communication in the regular classroom. But how can you hope to duplicate that in the virtual classroom? Just observe and ask! Just seeing faces and hearing each other helps. Individual check ins offer secure personal feedback as well. Maintaining social and emotional well-being is important. Our students are very happy to be able to safely interact again--see each other and hear each other--and the teacher, of course!

Checking in to see if all are okay, if they need anything to be as successful as possible in doing their schoolwork, and encouraging them to stick with it and be strong. Please check that email and review it together. Respond as necessary to any of the questions that may pertain to you and your student. Stay strong and stay healthy! We are dedicated to your success!

Learning is continuing for all of our Huskies. Have you checked Skyward to see how your child is doing in their studies? If not, this is the perfect time. And doing so regularly is a necessity. More than ever, our students need parent follow-up to ensure their success. It is imperative that all of our students continue to do their best--completing learning activities, submitting assignments, following up if necessary with suggested corrections to get full credit. We need all of our parents to be diligent in tracking their child's progress and supporting their learning. If you have questions about how your child is doing, do not hesitate to contact their teacher(s), Mrs. Zastrow (zastrow@hemlockps.com or 989.372.1307) or Mrs. Keyser (keyser@hemlockps.com or 989.482.3429)

It's time to reclaim your child's belongings from school, if they left things behind in their locker. It looks like Friday will bring us good weather; a good time to reclaim their things. We have removed all remaining items from lockers and placed them in labeled bags. You'll be getting a contact from school personnel to let you know if you have items to pick up. To ensure safety, we've scheduled pickup times by grade for Friday, April 17 in the afternoon. Fifth grade noon to 1:00. Sixth grade 1:00-2:00. Seventh grade 2:00-3:00. Eighth grade 3:00-4:00. Items will be placed on tables under our front entrance for pickup per this schedule. Please follow social distancing rules-one person at a time at the tables, touch only your child's bag, only have someone with no symptoms of illness claim the belongings. If necessary, you can contact Mr. Keyser about this- keyser@hemlockps.com or 989.482.3429 between 9 AM and 3:00 PM using text or voice.

Mr. Keyser misses doing the Monday Morning Meeting announcements! So....Happy birthdays going out this week to Jericho Orange 4/14, Cody Krueger and Blake Lepla 4/15, Nathan Jarabeck, Wyatte Near, Lissa Stephan and Kara Kienitz 4/16. I hope that all of our students are keeping up on their studies this week. You'll note that gradebooks are being updated regularly, so stay on top of things. You'll also notice that the workload is not the same as if we were here at school each day--we recognize that many of our students have added responsibilities at this time as well as new family opportunities, so we want to respect those things. If you need any assistance at all with school work, please contact your teacher directly--they are here to help you! Moms and dads--if you have any questions, you can reach your child's teachers using email or you can reach Mr. Keyser at keyser@hemlockps.com. We want this new adventure in online learning to be successful so as much learning as possible can go on for the rest of the year. We need everyone's help and cooperation to make it work. Have a great week!!

We had a "virtual staff meeting" this morning with all HMS teachers! It was great to see each of them and hear each other's voices. We all miss being at school and seeing our students and each other. One topic of discussion was "How are our students doing in terms of meeting learning expectations and preparing for the future when we return to school?" The answers varied, but overall our kids are doing very well using online learning. Please remember--there is work to do on the part of both teachers and students to prepare for when we return--we need everyone engaged in learning to make this work. #hemlockteachersonthejobforkidsnomatterwhat #hemlockstudentsarecontinuingtolearn

Middle school parents--you should be very proud of your kids today. As I met with them today by grade, they could have been grumbling, complaining, negative or simply delirious about having three weeks off. Instead, I talked to kids who were adaptable, who were ready to do whatever they could with this time off to extend their learning, who were positive and looking on the bright side, who were ready to accept this new challenge of complete virtual learning for a couple of weeks. We have great kids at Hemlock Middle School. And terrific teachers and staff as well. AND great parents who support their kids and our staff. Thank you for helping your kids and our teachers to meet this new educational challenge head on. We have much to be proud of. Give your child a pat on the back and a high five today.

Hello middle school parents! Just a note to let you know how we are proceeding in terms of schoolwork during the coming two weeks (since the governor has shut down schools during that time. We are out of school for the next 3 weeks--2 weeks mandated by the governor plus the already-scheduled Spring Break. At this time, we are scheduled to return to school on April 6. I am meeting today with each grade level and going over our plans and answering questions kids have. All of our core class teachers will be providing means for all students to continue learning during the next two weeks. All students should be either taking home their assigned Chromebook or have a plan to use another device at home to complete school work. Students who have paid the insurance fee should be all set with a charger. Student who have not previously paid the insurance fee will be bringing home their Chromebook and a charger from school--don't worry about the insurance. If you prefer that your child use a different device that is compatible with Google Classroom and StudySync, that is fine. There will be assignments and due dates communicated from teachers via emails and Google Classroom. We are working to include parents in accessing this work so you are aware of it as well--but you can always ask your child to see their Classroom account at any point. The work assigned will be accompanied by useful instruction components as necessary--video, audio, etc.--it will not simply be work to do. Further information will be provided as it becomes available. Some staff will be here at school each day if questions or needs arise. You can always reach us via email or phone during the next two weeks. We appreciate your flexibility with this and your support of our students' education--virtual learning is new for many of us and we will do our very best to make it a valuable experience for all concerned.

What can you do to help your student and the rest of your family stay as healthy as possible all day, every day? Use good hygiene practices to prevent the spread of diseases. Stay home if you are sick and advise others to do the same. Always cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or sleeve. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, if soap and warm water are not available. We clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (computers, keyboards, desks, etc.) as often as possible; you can do the same at home and away. This is especially important when you are school and other public places. Your healthy choices help others to stay healthy as well!

Thank you to Anthony Ianni for sharing his message today of treating each other with respect. His real life personal experiences dealing with autism and other personal differences while navigating adolescence helped our students understand the negative effects of mean behavior and the positive affects of treating each other with respect and standing up for others when we see mean treatment.

10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference After the Conference 9. Update your child. Talk to your child about what happened. It’s important to share anything positive that you and the teacher discussed. But it’s also important not to shy away from problems or challenges. If there are next steps, make sure your child knows what they are. 10. Follow up. If you and the teacher agreed on next steps, follow up in the next week or so to see how things are working out. It’s useful to have check-ins before the next conference. At each check-in, ask for an update, but also be ready to share what you’ve been doing on any action steps. Although parent-teacher conferences are short, they’re a good time to learn more about your child’s school experience. For more help, try out a parent-teacher conference survey to build understanding with your child’s teacher.

Save a few minutes at the end of the conference for next steps. Depending on what you’ve talked about, here’s what you might suggest: Staying in touch: “How can we keep talking about this? Could I get weekly feedback for the next month—maybe a quick email on Fridays?” In-class help: “We talked about giving my child more support in class. What should we look for in the coming weeks to decide if it’s working or not?” School services: “I’d like to meet with the school to talk about extra reading instruction. What information should we gather before that meeting?”

Getting ready for Parent-Teacher Conferences November 14, 1-4 and 5:30-7:30? 10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference At the Conference 6. Stay calm. It’s important to keep your emotions in check during the conference, even if your child is struggling with something. Taking a few deep breaths can help. Using a respectful tone will also help you and the teacher find solutions together for your child. At the same time, if you disagree with the teacher, be sure to speak up. If you don’t say something, the teacher may assume you don’t have concerns. 7. Ask the most important questions first. Remember that you only have a short time. Try to cover your most important questions and concerns first. (Use your list of questions, if you had time to make one.) But try not to worry if you don’t get to everything. You can still ask for a follow-up meeting with the teacher to discuss anything you couldn’t get to. And if you don’t understand something the teacher says, ask for an explanation.

10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference on November 14, 1-4 and 5:30-7:30 At the Conference 4. Arrive a few minutes early. Try to get there a few minutes early so you can find the classroom and not miss any of your time. If you’re early and waiting, check out the hallways where student work is posted to see what the class has been working on. 5. Skip the class overview (unless you need it). Teachers often begin the conference with some general class information. While this can be helpful, it takes up valuable conference time. If you already know this information, politely say something like: “I’ve been reading your newsletter. If it’s OK with you, can we spend more time on the questions I have about my child?”

10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference Before the Conference 3. Make a list of questions. Now that you’ve talked with your child and reviewed schoolwork, make a list of questions. If you’re stumped, use this list of questions to ask teachers. Think through anything you want to make sure the teacher knows. Are there specific things that helped your child thrive in school in the past? Have there been any big changes in your family or living situation? Are there holidays you’ll be away? Talk with other family members to make sure you cover everything. Once you have your list, put questions and concerns in order of importance, so you can cover the biggest things first. Use this parent-teacher conference worksheet to get organized.

This will be a more traditional roundtable format where parents can discuss their questions, concerns and celebrations with one another in a parents-only setting. A flyer listing upcoming opportunities is also attached and you can RSVP for meetings here. A few notes: This year, informational sessions are offered by the Great Lakes Bay ABA Collaborative Network during the day, and parent discussion times and family outings will be held in the evenings (and possibly some Saturdays). The flyer for the informational sessions is attached. There is a wealth of information being offered, so please be sure to take a look and try to attend! We are looking into arranging some family "outings" throughout the year. The first of these is planned for December 2, 2019 at 6:00pm. The Family Holiday Jingle & Mingle will be a very low-key, sensory friendly gathering to celebrate the holiday season with our support group friends. Children are welcome, and we'll have some fun activities for them to enjoy.

10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference on November 14, 1-4 and 5:30-7:30. Most parent-teacher conferences only last 10 or 15 minutes. That’s not a lot of time to connect with your child’s teacher. But with a little preparation and planning, you can make the most of this time. Here are 10 tips that can help. Before the Conference 2. Talk with your child. Get a sense from your child about how school is going. What’s most and least enjoyable? Does your child feel unsure about school? Who does your child sit with at lunch? (For more ideas, see this list of questions to ask your child.) Ask your child if there’s anything you should talk to the teacher about. Mention that every family has a conference, so your child doesn’t worry about what this meeting means.

Parent-Teacher conferences are coming up on November 14. Here are some ideas, for today and the coming days, for how to make these valuable for you and your child. 10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Conference: 1) Before the Conference: Look over schoolwork. Take some time to look over your child’s homework, essays, reading logs, and other schoolwork. How does it look like your child is doing? Is the homework too easy or too hard? Does your child need help? Review report cards, too. What are your child’s grades like? You can also look over any emails or newsletter updates the teacher has sent.

More ideas for how to be more involved in your child's education: 3. Broaden your child's understanding of the world by visiting malls, museums, parks, zoos, universities, sports stadiums, theaters, transportation facilities, farms, and local landmarks. 4. Make learning relevant by encouraging activities that use what kids learn at school. Encourage kids to count money; make shopping lists; calculate costs, sales prices, and taxes; read menus and newspapers; and write letters.

Rules of safety are reviewed regularly and posted in each classroom. Students are required to be silent and shall comply with the directives of school officials during emergency drills. Each school shall conduct a minimum of five (5) fire drills, two (2) tornado drills, and three (3) lockdown drills each school year. During a drill or actual emergency, personal safety will depend upon the way in which students carry out regular procedures or modified instructions that the situation may dictate.

Why Does Attendance Matter? Every school day counts in a child's academic life... A missed school day is a lost opportunity for students to learn. In this era of increased accountability for states, districts, and schools, the connection between student attendance and learning is being studied more than ever before. The primary rationale for focusing on attendance is the relationship between student attendance and student achievement. Teacher effectiveness is the strongest school-related determinant of student success, but chronic student absence reduces even the best teacher's ability to provide learning opportunities. Students who attend school regularly have been shown to achieve at higher levels than students who do not have regular attendance. This relationship between attendance and achievement may appear early in a child's school career. A recent study looking at young children found that absenteeism in kindergarten was associated with negative first grade outcomes such as greater absenteeism in subsequent years and lower achievement in reading, math, and general knowledge.

Extended Absences--Occasionally, a parent or guardian may decide it is important to remove the student from school. While the school does not approve of such absences, it will be responsive to family needs and wishes. Parents may request work a maximum of two (2) days in advance; however, teachers are not required to prepare detailed advance assignments or assist students who have prearranged absences. Please keep in mind the Saginaw County Truancy policy mentioned in previous posts when planning student absences from school.

What's going on? WEEKLY SCHOOL EVENTS NOTIFICATION One of our school district goals is to provide parents and students with complete and up to date information regarding school activities and events. This is accomplished in many ways. We post upcoming events on our school sign; we maintain a building Twitter and Facebook page; we post daily announcements to the middle school portion of the district app; we provide parents and students with e-mail access to staff; we provide parents and their designees secure access to their student(s) grades and attendance information via Skyward; we provide automated calls each day notifying parents of student absence; we staff our office each school day from 6:45 AM to 3:30 PM; and we provide regular calls/emails to parents detailing school events for the ensuing weeks using the district messaging system. This regular event notification is intended to be as comprehensive as possible at the time it is sent. Parents should still arrange for receipt of daily announcements to ensure that information is as up to date as possible.

Did you know?...Students who missed 2 or more days in September were significantly more likely to be chronically absent for the year. In fact, • Students who missed 2 to 4 days in September were 5 times more likely to be chronically absent than students who were absent fewer than 2 days • Students who missed more than 4 days were over 16 times as likely to be chronically absent than students who were absent fewer than 2 days This suggests that parents and schools need to pay attention to student attendance from the earliest days in September, and intervene to get students back on track quickly.

Ready to Ride the School Bus? School bus transportation is provided for all students living within the confines of the school district. This privilege may be denied for improper conduct while riding the bus. The length of this denial may vary from one day to the complete school year depending on the number of times reported and the seriousness of the misconduct. Students are not allowed to ride a different bus to another student’s home. Each driver reviews the basic rules and regulations regarding riding a bus with his/her students. He/she has authority to stop the bus to talk with a student who is not conducting himself/herself properly and to report the student to the bus supervisor and/or principal. Proper disciplinary action will be reported to parents or guardians. When your child remains after school or is required to serve a detention, transportation is the responsibility of the parents/guardians. Students are required to travel by bus to and from extra-curricular activities unless prior arrangements are made in writing through the office.

Saginaw County truancy policy requires us to report all absences, regardless of reason, to the Intermediate School District and to send written absence notifications to parents regularly. The county does not differentiate between excused absences and unexcused absences. We believe, and the court system supports, that students should be in school every day for their maximum academic potential to be realized. Please keep this in mind when planning your student’s day around things such as health professional appointments, family vacations, etc. We are required to report excessive (TEN OR MORE DAYS PER SEMESTER) student absences of any reason to the county truancy office for follow-up. We will contact parents/guardians by letter when your child has been absent four (4) and eight (8) times before contacting the truancy authorities.

Does your child ride the bus? The district provides bus transportation to and from school for students. A list of bus stops is published at the beginning of the school year before student registration. Parents/guardians must at the beginning of the school year select a bus stop at which the students to be picked up, and a stop at which a student has to be dropped off. Students are not permitted to ride a bus other than the bus to which they are assigned. Exceptions must be approved in advance by the transportation supervisor. When students are on the bus, they are under the supervision of the bus driver. In most cases, bus discipline problems can be handled by the bus driver. In the case of a written disciplinary referral, student bus problems will be investigated and handled by the transportation supervisor. Parents will be informed of any and all inappropriate student behavior on the bus. Parents are encouraged to discuss bus safety and appropriate behavior with her children before the beginning of the school year and regularly during the year. In the interest of the student safety, students are expected to observe the following rules: Choose a seat and sit in and immediately upon entering the bus. Do not stand in the interest or in the isles. Do not move from one state to another while on the bus. Keep all parts of the body and all objects inside the bus. Loud conversation, singing, boisterous activity, unnecessary noise, or profanity is not allowed. Enter and exit the bus only when the bus is fully stopped. All school rules apply while on the bus, at a bus stop, or waiting for the bus. Use emergency door only in an emergency. In the event of emergency stay on the bus and await instructions from the bus driver. Good behavior and behavior that will not distract the bus driver from operating the bus safely as required. Crowding, pushing, scuffling, and other needless commotion are grounds for disciplinary action. Do not open windows unless Directed to do so by the bus driver. Keep the bus neat and clean. Athletic footwear equipped with cleats or spikes are not allowed on the bus.

STUDENT MEDICATION Taking medication during school hours or during school-related activities is prohibited unless it is necessary for a student’s health and well-being. When a student’s licensed health care provider and parent/guardian believe that it is necessary for the student to take a medication during school hours or school-related activities, the parent/guardian must request that the school dispense the medication to the child by completing a student medical authorization form. The student must submit a completed school-issued medication form that explains what type of medication he/she is taking, proper dosage, and how often it should be given/taken. He/she should turn the form, along with prescription medications, into the office. The form must be signed by a doctor--this is true for prescription and non-prescription medications. Without a completed form, your child will be in violation of our district’s drug policy. The office stores all prescription and non-prescription medication and makes parental arrangements for the time and availability of the medication as well as its administration. All medications must be taken home at the end of the school year. Those left unclaimed will be disposed of. No school or district employee is allowed to administer to any student, or supervise a student self-administration of, any prescription or non-prescription medication until a completed and signed school medication authorization form is submitted by the student’s parent/guardian. This form must be signed by a doctor. This does not include the emergency administration of an epinephrine auto injector (an EpiPen) by a trained school or district employee as provided under state law. No student is allowed to possess or consume any prescription or nonprescription medication on school grounds or at a school-related function. A student may possess an epinephrine auto injector (an EpiPen) and/or an asthma inhaler prescribed for immediate use at the student’s discretion, provided the student’s parent/guardian has completed and signed an authorization for student self-medication form.

Back to School shopping for clothes? Please remember that we have a dress code. Also note that all of our buildings are air-conditioned. The following is our dress code. DRESS FOR STUDENTS IN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL Good taste in dress calls for neatness, moderation, modesty and appropriateness. Footwear must be worn at all times. Students are to present themselves, through clothing and appearance, in a manner that encourages themselves, their peers and teachers to focus as completely as possible on teaching and learning while minimizing distractions. 1. Coats: Coats are not to be worn to class. Teachers may make exceptions to this rule if the temperature in the classroom makes it necessary. Adornment: Students are expected to adorn themselves in a manner that encourages themselves, their peers and teachers to focus as completely as possible on teaching and learning while minimizing distractions. This expectation covers jewelry, body art, piercings, and other forms of adornment. Student safety is of paramount concern, for both the student involved and their peers. Hats/head coverings: The wearing of hats/head coverings is not allowed in the school building. If brought to school, they are to be kept in your locker during the school day. 4. Mutilated Clothing: Excessively torn or ripped clothing is not considered acceptable dress. 5. Obscene Clothing: Tasteful dress is expected. Any clothing with sexual innuendos; alcohol, drug, or tobacco products; derogatory comments or caricatures is prohibited. 6. Shirts/Tops: All shirts/tops are to have sleeves and extend past the waistline to completely cover the wearer at all times, regardless of activity. Tanks tops, boat-neck tops that reveal undergarments, sleepwear, loungewear, midriff tops, and see-through tops are some examples of inappropriate shirts/tops. 7. Shorts, Skirts, and Spandex/tights: Shorts and skirts must be tip of finger length at a minimum, as measured with arms extended straight down at the sides. Students must change inappropriate clothes if worn to school. Wearing apparel underneath inappropriate clothing does not make the exterior clothing appropriate, i.e. short skirts/shorts with spandex or tights underneath is not acceptable. Spandex/tights must be worn under school-appropriate clothing, not alone. 8. Oversized and/or Low-Rising Pants/Shorts: Oversized and/or low-rising pants/shorts must be worn in such a way so as to not reveal underwear or portions of the body considered inappropriate or in bad taste. We expect students who wear low-rise pants to wear a shirt or top that covers their waistline at all times, whether sitting, bending, or standing. The use of chain(s) as a belt or wallet protector is prohibited. NOTE: Students may be required to change their appearance and/or clothing or to spend the day in in-school suspension if their attire or appearance is deemed by a staff member to be in violation of the dress code.

This just in: School is more than just academics! What the Research Tells Us: Those who stay in school receive something more than a diploma. It is more than discussing academic subjects like reading, writing and arithmetic. Students who stay in school and finish their high school education possess something non-grads don't have. Something happens in the twelve years of a K-12 school experience that doesn't occur in someone without a diploma. As economist James Heckman (from the University of Chicago) reviewed the results of longitudinal studies, he drew a few conclusions. Those are summarized here: Academic success does not necessarily predict future success in life. Students gain and mature greatly when they remain in a disciplined routine. Improvement and maturity occur in relationship with a cohort of people. Social and emotional learning are a large part of the education process. In other words, there are hidden advantages to staying in school. For more information, go to https://growingleaders.com/blog/the-hidden-advantages-of-staying-in-school/

Just because you want to enjoy the summer months doesn’t mean your child has to stop learning during the summer. Students interested in growth and maintaining their learning through the year, as well as those looking for other options, are the perfect candidates for opportunities through our school district, our local library, through apps such as Freckle, or video games with educational programs like Minecraft for Education. Summer break can still be fun, but it doesn't have to be a vacation from learning.

Ever wonder what goes on at the middle school all summer? Well..it's a time to clean, paint, repair, renovate and renew. In these pictures you'll see Mr. Earle and Mr. Grossmeyer cleaning carpets. You'll also see in-process painting, the mid-process transformation of rooms 10 & 11 (former computer labs) to new math labs, the updating of the woodshop room to our new STEAM room (yes, there will still be a project or two with wood (to utilize design, art, engineering and construction skills), and pics of the ladders, cleaning and painting materials used and pics of the gym and cafeteria walls. If you remember the yellow glazed tiles in the gym, you'll notice those tiles are now the same color as the upper portions of the gym walls. Gym floor is sanded and will get a new cost of finish. Same painting ideals for the cafeteria walls, which once were mismatched following previous bond issue updates creating a mish-mash of glazed tiles colors. Working toward a brighter, nicer, more up to date place to learn!

Have a terrific summer vacation! Remember--you can keep your learning fresh over the summer by reading books, using Freckle to work on your four core subjects, and using your brain to solve puzzles, riddles and other games. Just because school is not in session doesn't mean your brain has to go on vacation...

Our Peer 2 Peer students (under the direction of Jamie Otter and Jill Asiala) celebrated a year of helping each other. We are proud of our Peer to Peer members! Peer-to-peer programs are volunteer programs linking general education students, with students who have disabilities, in order to support them throughout the school day. The pairing of students leads to greater socialization and independence.

Tonight was our last PTO Meeting for this school year. We will begin selling frozen lemonade next week at lunches if all goes according to plan. Shooting for Tuesday. It would be great if one or two parents could help Julie Reidsma with that. 11:15-12:45--limited time commitment. Won't interfere with DC fundraiser. We are planning a couple things as we head back to school. Maybe a social gathering at a local spot for interested parents a week or two before school starts? A table set up at Welcome Back to School Night for parents to sign up and get more info? If you have ideas and want to get involved, like and share Hemlock Middle School PTO Facebook page and reply as interested or committed. Spread the word! Thank you!!
