CRMS Update for 2/5/18

posted Feb 5, 2018, 6:25 PM by Marcy Reynolds

Dear Coast Redwood Middle School Families:

 

I hope you all are enjoying this unusually warm winter/spring weather!  It is an inspiring time to garden and we will be moving forward with our plans for renovation.  If you have any tools that the kids can borrow (pry bars, crow bars, hammers, flat & Phillips head screwdrivers, staple removers) please send them with your child to class to use in dismantling the beds.  We are trying to salvage as much of the wood as possible for reuse.  As the kids design beds to fit their chosen plants, I’m sure we’ll be asking for odds and ends to repurpose into bed-building materials, too. 

 

In addition to tools, please send cameras with your kids to class this week (if you have them).  We’ll want to take photos of the garden renovation in progress.  The kids will also be photographing their bio partners this week. (See class summary below.)

 

Last on the CRMS to do list before Wednesday would be to fill out the survey about out trip to Yosemite.  Thank you to those who have already filled out the survey.  So far ten of you have responded. I need to hear from at least 10 more of you to be able to move forward. If you have any questions I can answer to help you decide, please let me know.  At this point I just need to determine if we have enough interest to make the commitment to go: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VFZVWYS.

 

Thanks!

Looking Ahead:

 

*CRMS Monthly Parent Meeting Schedule:  Many thanks to Lisa Michel for offering to supervise the kids during these meetings from 2:15pm-3:15pm: Wednesdays, March 14, April 18, May 9.

Class Summary:

 

Partner Bio:  The kids brainstormed questions to ask each other, including both closed and open-ended, internal and external questions. They interviewed each other, took notes, and used those notes to write a paragraph describing their partners.  We dissected some of those paragraphs and identified next steps in improvement.  Some of the kids are on their second draft, still consulting with their partners to clarify information.  We will be finishing up this week.  If your student cannot finish the bio in class this week, I'll be asking you to help them finish it at home, which may require a phone call to their partner to ask more questions.

 

Garden Redesign:  We worked in the garden to begin the process of dismantling some of the garden beds.  The kids all chose several plants they would like to grow and researched information about the needs of those plants.

 

All Charter Play:  We attended the play performance of Cinder-idol.  Kudos to players!

 

P.E. & Health: After our Circle Check-In, we ran stair laps, ran a relay race, practiced frisbee-throwing skills, and played a beginner's-level version of Ultimate Frisbee.

 

Typing Up the Week:  If your student is having trouble typing up the week adequately in class, please let me know.  I can offer tools that will make it more successful for them.

 

Announcements:

Coping with Stress workshop for Parents, next Thursday.  Please see attached flyer.

CRMS Update for 12/11/15

posted Dec 13, 2017, 7:52 PM by Marcy Reynolds

Dear Coast Redwood Middle School Families:

Only two more weeks until winter break.  I look forward to finishing up work started this fall on the class business, building, etc., and also look forward to hearing our final presenters.  Thanks to those of you who loaned us desk lamps for our drawing class with Tina.  We are finished with them now, so you can return them to their place in your home.  Chico bags orders should arrive to us early next week; you should be able to pick them up after class next Wednesday.

 

Dates to Remember:

*Wednesday, December 13:  Please have your child bring their two-three picture to class. Tina will be helping the kids draw them this week.

*Thursday, December 14, 2:15pm-4:00pm, Month 3 Attendance Paperwork Due:  This is only a 3-week school month, so the paperwork turn-around time is quicker than usual.  Please plan on staying for a few minutes after class to work with your child to turn in your month 4 attendance paperwork to your child’s blue portfolio binder.  Please remember that there are three components to turn in:

The Attendance Check-Off Sheet (signed & dated 12/15/17)

A print out of the Learning Log (portrait orientation, your student’s name & attendance month at the top)

A minimum of 4 Work Samples (which should include one Writing and one Math)

Since you child will be typing class activities into their learning log that day, you’ll probably need to print out week 3’s page in the classroom.  I will be there to help with printouts, etc.

*Friday, December 15, before 2:30pm:  Science Fair Applications due to Katie Parmenter.  See announcement and attachments.

*Friday, December 22- January 5, Winter Break.  No need to keep homeschooling records.

*Monday, January 8, All Charter Hike, Location TBA:  I’ll be leading a hike in a local park for charter families to kick off second semester.

Tuesday, January 8- Tuesday, January 30, Semester 2 Planning Meetings:  Please sign up for a time in the classroom before winter break.

*Tuesday, January 30: Full-time Homeschooling and Second Semester Planning Meetings with Marcy. 

*Wednesday, January 31:  Classes at CRMS resume.

 

Summary of Class Activities:

Circle Check-In:  We did our usual check-in and also included the NVC feeling cards.

P.E.:  The kids read the written Cat & Mouse game description, then we played the game.  Some of the kids also played Dodgeball at lunchtime.

Fundraising Math:  The kids worked in pairs to figure out the percentage of funds that the students raised (with parent help) and the parents raised (without student help) in the Chico Bag fundraiser to determine what percentage of the funds each group gets to choose how to spend.

Writing:  The kids each wrote a persuasive paragraph to convince various audiences of how to spend the money they raised in the Chico Bag fundraiser.

Sign Language with Katreen:  Katreen taught us new classroom-related vocabulary and we practiced everything that she has taught us in the last three classes.  Please ask your CRMS student to show you some of what they learned!

Drawing with Tina: The kids worked on drawing a still life after Tina introduced a couple of different ways to approach the task.

Presentation by Jen Sims:  I led a mindfulness of body sensations activity, then Jen led a discussion about different types of self-awareness and connected self-awareness to beliefs and values.  The kids all started (and some completed) drawing a coat of arms design based on their values and beliefs. 

Project Presentations:  We had a wonderful week of student presentations on:  video game types, pesticides, JRR Tolkien, cat language and fermented beverages.  As usual, each member of the audience gave written feedback to the presenters.  The presenters all did an excellent job!

 

 Parent Meeting Summary:

*Fundraising:  We celebrated our recent fundraising success.  The parents present were in favor of a spring camping trip to the Pinnacles as a use for the funds, which is one of the activities that interests the kids.  I had looked at the weekdays of the week of April 16 as a possible time for us to go since, as of last weekend, there were still two group campsites available next to each other that week.

*Treering:  Before we break for the holidays, I am going to need your CRMS student’s non-school email address, and their password (if they have trouble remembering their password) so that I can add them to our class list on Treering (our yearbook service).  Once I have them (and you) on the class list, then you and your child will create an account at home and we’ll be ready to start working on it when classes resume again.  I will send details out about how to use Treering later, for now, I just need those email addresses.  This Thursday, when you turn in your attendance paperwork, please check in with me to make sure that I have your child’s correct email.  Thanks!

*Field Trips:  I shared some information I had received about field trips to the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History and the parents present were in favor of my organizing a field trip there.  We also have a field trip reservations for the Rosicrucian Museum on 4/25 and the San Francisco Zoo on 3/7.  The 3/7 date needs to be reconfirmed though, due to something happening at the Zoo that may end up negating our reservation.  I will let you know about this as soon as I hear back from them.

*Science Fair:  Diving in to a science fair project is a great way to transition out of holiday-model and take advantage of your extra homeschooling time in January while the ongoing groups do not hold any classes.  A science fair entry can be based on research, an experiment, a demonstration, or invention idea.  You don’t need to know what you plan to do when turning in the application this Thurs/Fri.  Turning in the application is simply a commitment to participate.  Applications are due this week.

*Writing Tutor:  Some families expressed an interest in hiring a writing tutor for either one-on-one or small group instruction.  If any of you have a name and contact information for a good writing tutor who might be available, please let me know and I will pass on this information.  We also discussed the possibility of having a writing club meet in the classroom, either after class on a Wed/Thurs or on a Mon/Tues.  In a club framwork the students would do most of their writing at home and then bring competed or in progress work to the club meeting to share with and received feedback (and appreciation) from an audience of peers.  The club would be facilitated by a parent or by Marcy.  Please let me know if you are interested in any of these writing support options.

*Photos:  If you happen to be in the classroom during CRMS activities and you have a device that can take photos, you are invited to please take pictures!  I have a hard time taking photos and teaching at the same time and the kids forget, unless we are all doing photography at the same time.  Any photos we take now will be helpful when we create our yearbook collages in the spring.

Announcements: 

Science Fair

Come participate in our school science fair and perhaps even the county science fair!  Working on a science fair project is a great way to take advantage of the extra homeschooling time you’ll have during the month of January since classes for homeschoolers don’t begin until the end of the month.  The deadline for applications is 12/15.  Please turn your applications to me by 12/14 or turn them in to Katie at the Quail Hollow Homeschool site by Friday, December 15th by 2:30pm.  (They can be dropped off with Katie or a scanned application can be emailed to kparmenter@slvusd.org.)  An application, filled out in its entirety, is needed for each participant. Filling out an application is a commitment to participating in the science fair : )​ Science fair boards will be available beginning the first week back from winter break in January.  

CRMS Update for 12/5/17

posted Dec 13, 2017, 7:49 PM by Marcy Reynolds

Dear Coast Redwood Middle School Families:

 Thank you for all your support for our fundraising efforts the last couple of weeks!  The Chico Bag fundraiser, led by Sheila True, was particularly successful.  Not only did we raise $1058 for the classroom, but the kids also earned prizes and my desire that most of the funds come from outside of CRMS families (who already contribute so much!) was satisfied.  We haven’t done the math on it yet, but it seems as if our lotions sales at the craft faire were better than expected as well.  I’m looking forward to connecting with the students who were there and hearing more details.

 Thanks to those of you who loaned us desk lamps for our drawing class with Tina.  We would love to hold on to them for one more week.  Also this week, Tina has requested that each child bring 2-3 pictures to class of things they would like to learn to draw.  She will be assessing the photos/pictures this week to determine if they are appropriately challenging for each child.  Once they have Tina’s approval, the kids will keep them here to use the following week(s).  If you have any questions about the pictures or the drawing class, please feel free to email Tina directly. Thank you Tina for offering this class!

 

Dates to Remember:

Wednesday, December 6:  Please have your child bring their two-three picture to class for evaluation by Tina (see intro above).  Please also remember to have your child bring their green binder back to class.

 Thursday, December 7, 2:15-3:30pm:  CRMS Monthly Parent Meeting.  On the agenda for this meeting will be debriefing fundraising and discussing how to spend those funds, project presentation and homeschooling check-in, Treering yearbook sign up information, and semester 2 planning meeting sign-ups.  I hope you can make it!

 Friday, December 15, 10:30am-12:30pm, Capture the Flag at Quail Hollow Ranch (Please note date change)Feel free to bring your lunch and join in the volunteer time afterward from 1pm-3pm to help support the Ranch. 

 Thursday, December 14, 2:15pm-4:00pm, Month 3 Attendance Paperwork Due:  This is only a 3-week school month, so the paperwork turn-around time is quicker than usual.  Please plan on staying for a few minutes after class to work with your child to turn in your month 4 attendance paperwork to your child’s blue portfolio binder.  Please remember that there are three components to turn in:

 Friday, December 22- January 5, Winter Break.  No need to keep homeschooling records.

 Monday, January 8-  Tuesday, January 30: Full-time Homeschooling and Second Semester Planning Meetings with Marcy. 

 Wednesday, January 31:  Classes at CRMS resume.

 

Summary of Class Activities (for the last couple of class weeks):

 Circle Check-In:  We did our usual check-in and also included the NVC feeling cards.

 P.E.:  We played Run, Rabbit Run and Banana Tag.

 Sales:  The kids came up with selling points for both their Chico Bag fundraiser and their lotion.

 Business Math:  The kids worked on figuring out the real costs of materials used to make each container of lotion.  This is a challenge because each step is actually composed of multiple steps and multiple operations.

 Business Writing:  The kids read and analyzed different project descriptions and then wrote two different original product description drafts.

 More Class Business:  The kids worked in teams to: build a Wordpress website, create a brochure, finalize product description copy, paint and hand-write product labels, enter material cost data on a spreadsheet and determine pricing and to make a batch of the lotion.  Eight of our classmates sold lotion at the all charter craft faire.

 Sign Language with Katreen:  Katreen came and taught us about the anatomy and physiology of hearing loss and shared her personal story.  She taught us how to finger spell and introduce ourselves.  She taught us about 25 words that we could use to make phrases.

 Drawing with Tina: Tina taught showed the kids the key places to notice on an object when working on shading and the kids used that information to draw a spot-lit softball.

 Hanging Cubby Project:  Some of the students who did not have a hanging cubby from last year constructed one.

 Lockdown Drill:  The kids participated in a campus-wide Stage 1 lockdown drill.

 Project Presentations:  In the last couple of weeks we were treated to student project presentations on: glassblowing, drones, Sphero, ball pythons, and whales.  Congratulations to presenters!

Dear Coast Redwood Middle School Families,

Since this is the time of year that you may be spending more time with friends and family and because it is a time of year when  those friends and family might be purchasing gifts, I wanted to write a follow-up email with updates about our Chico Bag fundraiser and our Healthy Hand & Body Lotion business:

 

Chico Bags:

*We’ve got a quick turn-around on this one: Your kids will be returning all checks, cash and order forms to Sheila or myself when we return from break on Wednesday, 11/29.

 

*If folks you know are interested in purchasing some Chico Bag products and would like to pay by check, please ask them to make checks out to SLV Charter School with CRMS written in the memo line. 

 

*The PDF of all the available products was attached to the last CRMS update. Here is the link again:

ChicoBag Fundraising Catalog.

 

Healthy Redwoods Hand & Body Lotion:

I have been busily peddling the kids’ lotion at my qigong classes and have sold all the jars that we made labels for.  Felton Nutrition has kindly offered for us to sell our lotion at their store.  Noah and sister Olivia are working on handwriting more labels so that we can get our lotion into Felton Nutrition this week.  Thank you Noah & Olivia!  Hopefully next week we will be able to make more product, establish the beginnings of an online presence, create a brochure, and get our accounting straight so that we can firmly establish pricing.  The kids started on all of this last Thursday.  At this point we are selling 1 oz. containers for $4.50 and 2 oz. containers for $7.50.

 

We have gotten approval to sell our lotion at the All Charter Craft Faire on 12/1, 10am-2pm.  Lauren and Megan have offered to facilitate this.  I would love to have our table “humanned” by teams of two CRMS students for 1 hour each so that 8 of our students get practice selling our product at the faire.  My hope is that this year each CRMS student will have at least one experience of direct face-to-face sales.  Please let me know if your child cannot make it to the craft faire (NBOG kids need not reply).  If I don’t hear from you I will sign your student up for a shift.

 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I look forward to seeing you next week!

CRMS Update for 4/24/17

posted Apr 24, 2017, 10:05 AM by Marcy Reynolds

Dear CRMS Families,

Most of the kids were able to finish their testing last week and celebrate the end (or near end) of the testing process with popsicles!  Some kids still need to make-up parts of the test.  Once I find out who needs to complete which test, I will contact you to schedule a time to finish them up.  Thanks to all who came to help support the kids (and the garden) during our testing mornings.

This week we have a special guest coming to CRMS.  Gitta Ryle is a friend of the Fraser-Thiede family. She is a survivor of the German holocaust in World War II, and is by all accounts a very positive and inspiring woman.  Jennifer feels that the kids would really benefit by meeting Gitta so she is bringing her to our class at 10am this Wednesday to share stories from her life. Here are some links to articles about her, if you would like to get to know her a little bit:

http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/20120702/gitta-ryle-santa-cruz-county-stories-holocaust-survivor-tells-students-not-to-forget

http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/general-news/20140827/santa-cruz-holocaust-survivor-remember-you-met-me

Several of the CRMS kids have studied World War II this year, but most have not, and we have not studied it in class, so you may want to discuss the war and the holocaust some with your CRMS student to help orient them for Gitta’s visit and maybe even come up with some good questions to ask her.

CRMS Update for 4/17/17

posted Apr 19, 2017, 4:06 PM by Marcy Reynolds

Dear CRMS Families,

Your kids all did an amazing job focusing on the CAASPP test last week!  I think it is great for them to see just how focused they can be if they really apply themselves.  I am hoping we will be able to finish the testing this week, but I don’t want it to be too crammed for the kids, so if we need more time, we’ll spill over into May.

I think you’ll see by the calendar below that we have entered into the super-busy, super-fun, never-a-dull-moment end of the school year.  I hope you all are ready to jump in with both feet and enjoy all that this time of year has to offer!

Project Presentation:  If your child has already had their preview meeting with me, please have them come to class prepared to give their presentation.  Depending on how the testing goes we may have time for 4-5 presentations this week.

 

 

Summary of Class Activities:

 

 

CAASPP Test:

The kids really did a great job applying themselves to the CAASPP English-Language Arts and Math tests this week.  I suggested that completing these tests could be compared to climbing a mountain.  It seems insurmountable at first and it is a lot of work, but by putting one foot in front of the other, pacing yourself, and taking breaks, you can increase your capacity for focus and mental endurance, regardless of the amount of content you know.  A big thank you to Leean and Sheila who held space in the garden, even during showery weather for the kids’ breaks.

 

ECO-ART:

Cindy (Kovas’ Mom) introduced us to the problem of plastics in the ocean and the environment and inspired us to use our engineering skills to come up with ways to reuse plastics instead of throwing them away.  With Leean’s help, the kids made fish magnets out of the mesh bags you’ve been donating all year plus resin.  The kids also came up with creative ways to recycle and reuse plastic waste.  A great follow up to this activity would be to go see the crocheted coral reef exhibit at Sesnon Gallery at Porter College at UCSC, if you haven’t gotten there yet.  I think the exhibit is going to leave town soon. 

 

Learning Styles and Goal Setting:

Jennifer Kelly (our CRHS’ and SLVHS’ academic counselor came to our class to introduce herself to the kids and to explain how she supports students to do well in school and achieve their goals.  She led the kids in two exercises: one on goal setting, and one on identifying learning styles. 

 

Gardening:

The kids pulled weeds on testing breaks!

 

Yearbook:

I introduced most of the newcomers to our yearbook format to help them get a sense of what we are creating together and what they will be expected to do.  Some of the kids took photos and loaded them into their Google Photos account.  I introduced them to how to edit photos in Google Photos and some of the kids were able to edit one or two photos.

 

Project Presentation:  We enjoyed Serafiina’s project presentation on Equestrian Vaulting.

 

Wish List:

We could still use more hot pads, another small saucepan, and a couple of Pyrex two-cup measures.

Announcements:

Screenagers:

Wednesday, April 19, 7-9 pm, Performing Arts Center on the Tri-campus. 7105 Highway 9, Felton, 95018. Suggested donation of $10  https://impactflow.com/event/presented-by-slvusd-charter-school-2178.  Please contact Danelle Matteson at 335-0932 for more info.

CRMS Update for 4/10/17

posted Apr 13, 2017, 3:39 PM by Marcy Reynolds

Dear CRMS Families,

I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing spring break last week!  For the next four class mornings we will be participating in the statewide SBAC testing, so our mornings will be a very quiet, focused time with garden breaks between tests and as needed.  If you’d like to give your kids (or yourself) a chance to get used to the SBAC test interface, or just to see the type of questions your kids will encounter, I suggest you hop on this link: https://login4.cloud1.tds.airast.org/student/V171/Pages/LoginShell.aspx?c=SBAC_PT   It is already set to Guest, so you only need to select the grade and Math or ELA to get started.  If your intention is to help your child acclimate to the interface, then I recommend choosing a lower grade than your child’s grade of enrollment.  Please make sure your child gets adequate sleep and eats a good breakfast (which includes protein) before testing to help support brain function.  If your child has headphones that are comfortable for them, please send them to class on Wednesday.

Thank you to the parents who signed-up up to be in the garden so the kids can change focal length, get some fresh air, and move their bodies!  Testing time at CRMS is always weeding time.  It would be great if we could get the entire garden weeded and mowed by the end of our testing time next Thursday.  If any of you have an hour or two (or even just a few minutes) available, I invite you to stop by and join in the effort. The gate is unlocked, so you can come in any time. Many hands make light work!

Dates to Remember:

April 12, 13, 19 & 20, CAASPP/SBAC Testing at CRMS.

 

Friday, 4/14, 10:30am-12:30pm  Capture the Flag at the Quail Hollow School Site (not at Quail Hollow Ranch).

 

Wednesday, 4/19, 2:15-3:30pm, CRMS Parent Meeting

 

 

To Do/Homework:

Complete Alliterative Acrostic: (Please see summary below.)  If your child did not finish their alliterative acrostic poem in class, please have them  finish it up at home.  They should have it in their white binder.  A dictionary or thesaurus can be helpful.  The purpose of this assignment is not only to learn about alliteration and stretch vocabulary, but also to develop a word bank that we can pull from when writing advertising and website copy for the business.

Project Presentation:  Time to finish up project presentations and meet with me for a preview.

 

 

Summary of Class Activities for 3/29 & 3/30:

 

 

Monster Mummy:

We attended Quail Hollow Homeschool’s comedic play on mummification.  They did a great job!

 

Class Business:

Creating a Webpage:  I set up a way that each of the kids could log on to Wordpress, showed them some basics of web design including using the tool bar, using ipsom lorem as dummy text, how to imbed images, and how to create columns.  All the kids who could log-on to their personal gmail address were able to start working on webpage design for the class business.  Those who weren’t able to get on directly, worked with others who could.  Please make sure that your child knows their own personal gmail address and password since we’ll not only be using them for work related to the business, but also for working on the yearbook.

 

Crafting a Logo:  The kids watched a short EdCorps video on branding which included a discussion of font and color.  After a brief tutorial, they used logomakr.com to create digital logos for the class business.  Logomakr was a bit buggy and limited in what it could do, but was simple enough so that all the kids were able to come up with nice-looking designs.  At the end of the class we admired each one and noticed how the different designs created a different sense of the product.

 

Alliteration:  We explored how alliteration, like rhyme, makes statements more memorable.  The kids worked on creating an alliterative acrostic poem, finding alliterations to go with every letter in our company name.  Much fun was had by all creating silly, as well as serious alliterations.

 

Photography:  The kids took spring-themed photos in the meadow and the forest for potential use on the Healthy Redwoods website.  They uploaded their photos into Google Photos and some of the kids started the editing process.

 

PE:

Ryan came and led the kids in sit-ups, push-ups, lunges, and medicine ball relay races.

 

Gardening:

The kids loaded up all the junk and weeds that we had piled up at the bottom of the garden into Orion’s truck.  Many thanks to Orion for offering his truck and bringing the load to the transfer station!

 

Project Presentation:  We were treated to a project presentation on U.S. Dialects.  Thanks to Jack and all of you who participated in Jack’s survey!

 

Wish List:

We could still use more hot pads, another small saucepan, and a couple of Pyrex two-cup measures.

Wednesday, 4/19, 2:15-3:30pm, CRMS Parent Meeting

 

Save the Date:  End-of-Year Advancement Ceremony and Celebration, Tuesday, June 6, 3-6pm.

 

 

To Do/Homework:

 

1.   Please prioritize working on project presentations.  I have set up a preview meetings with all of you at this point.  If you are unsure of your meeting time, please let me know. 

 

2.   Please encourage your child notice business logos as you go about your daily life.  Are they abstract or representational?  What do the designs convey?  Which ones are they most attracted to?  Why?

 

3.   Intent to Return forms are due by 3/31. 

 

4.   Ski trip $. Thanks!

 

Parent Meeting:  We had a snow trip check-in.  I showed the kids’ mission statement videos.  We checked-in about the upcoming CAASPP testing.  Rachel gave a Parent Advisory Council meeting update where LCAP funding was discussed.  Rachel asked if families would be interested in having their child(ren) participate in a theme-based 6-8 week math class next year.  All present said they would participate if the theme was appropriate to their child’s level and it was at a time when their child could participate.

 

Summary of Class Activities:

 

Class Business:

The kids watched the videos of each of them proclaiming their personal mission statement and wrote down key words that they heard from each statement.  We looked at those key words and identified which ones could also apply to our business mission.  I read them examples of a mission statements from a variety of different non-profit agencies, then they tried their hand at writing their own, including what we were doing, how we were doing it, and why we were doing it.  The variety of statements they came up with was great and we’ll be able to use them all somewhere in our advertising.

 

Kira (Hannah’s mom) came to class and did a graphic design activity with the kids to get them thinking about expressing emotions and ideas through shapes.  Thanks to her leadership we already have some good ideas for our business logo to go with the business name the kids chose –Healthy Redwoods-.

 

The kids split up all of the returned lotion sample surveys and tallied the results on the tally sheet that the survey group had made.  Not all the kids were able to look at all the surveys, but they did get some idea of trends and also made some improvements in the tally sheet.

 

PE:

The kids played lots of Dodgeball, both during the parent meeting and on Thursday.  We also played Banana Tag during lunch.

 

Gardening:

The kids cleared and amended three beds and transplanted the pea seedlings they had started a few weeks ago.

 

Trip Meal Follow-Up:

Looking at receipts from the food purchased for the snow trip, the kids compared their estimated meal costs to the true costs, taking into account food that was purchased and not used and food that was donated.

 

Project Presentation:  We had our first presenter this week who taught us about the Golden State Warriors and their history.  Thanks Amelia for starting us off!

 

 

Wish List:

*Empty & Clean Lotion/Hand Cream Containers:  This week the kids will be investigating packaging possibilities.  It would be great to see/experiment with as many different types of dispensers/bottles possible.

We could still use more hot pads and another small saucepan.

*Parent Help:  We could use some help weeding in the garden.  If you have a few minutes as you’re coming or going to drop by, your help would be appreciated!   We could benefit from the use of a pick-up truck to transport our weed and trash pile at the base of the garden to the dumpster.  The pile is growing so large that soon it will be difficult to get in and out of the gate.

 

Announcements:

The first track and field practice is Monday March 27th from 2:30-4:00.  Dress in comfortable clothes and meet the coaches outside the locker rooms.  Remember, there are no cuts and there is an event for everyone.  Hope to see you there!  The more the merrier.

Dear CRMS Families,

Thanks all for a rich and fun snow trip with lots of learning and growing!  It is always inspiring to me how a trip like that can have such a profoundly deepening effect on group dynamics.  To those who stayed home, thanks for taking the lead on project presentations!  I’m looking forward to previewing your child’s presentation soon.

4.   I should be sending out total costs for the ski trip soon.

 

Summary of Class Activities:

 

3/8 & 3/9:

 

Class Business:

The three groups continued to work on their part of the project, created a shared Google doc with their compiled information and presented their information with the whole class.   The research group did find some information on ingredient health/toxicity.  It was a challenging task, made more challenging when they tried to compile the information they found.  The shopping research group was able to come up with a clear list of ingredients and the best prices and sources.  The survey group created a tally sheet for survey results and shared the feedback so far.

 

Maha came in and showed us how she is applying her commitment to upcycling to creating and packaging the jewelry she sells.  She taught the kids how to make boxes out of out-of-date wallpaper samples.

 

PE:

The kids played Banana Tag.  Ryan came on Thursday and led the kids in stretching, jumping and side-stepping up the stairs.  He also had them increase their stamina with holding plank and doing burpees.  Then we had fun playing an agility game.

 

Gardening:

The kids finished mapping the garden and made kale chips from the kale they grew.

 

Trip Prep.:

The kids worked in their meal groups to plan menus and estimate pricing for their snow trip meals.

 

3/15-3/17:

Snow Trip:

The kids all skied or snowboarded. They all cooked and cleaned, they all played games, got to know each other, navigated living together, and had a lot of fun at the Sembrat’s beautiful cabin.  Thank you so much to April and family for offering their space to us!

 

Wish List:

*Empty & Clean Lotion/Hand Cream Containers:  This week the kids will be investigating packaging possibilities.  It would be great to see/experiment with as many different types of dispensers/bottles possible.

Thanks to Sara for donating two blenders from Abbot’s!  Thanks to all who have shared your blenders and donated oven mitts and sauce pans.  We could still use more hot pads and another small saucepan.

*Parent Help:  I don’t have any parent helper signed up for next week.  Is anyone available?  It really helps to be able to run at least two stations for hands-on activities.  With no parent helper our activities become more limited. 

 

Announcements:

All Spring Sports tryouts with the exception of Golf start on Monday March 27th:

Girls Softball after school-2:30 March 27th 

Boys Volleyball after school-2:30 March 27th

Track and Field after school-2:30 March 27th

 

Screenagers: Take 3!!!!  As incredible as it may sound, our March 8 Screenagers! night was curtailed once again. This time it did not happen due to calendar mix-up at the PAC.  Our extreme apologies to the parents who came, only to find that the PAC was not open.  Thank you to our staff Amber, Rosie, and Jen who were there and fielded the frustrating non-event.

But We Will Not Give Up! After ensuring that yes, indeed we can keep the rental of the DVD from the Screenagers producers, and double assurance that the PAC will be ready for us, We have scheduled a final date of Wednesday, April 19, 7-9 pm, for any and all parents and students to come watch this important film with us, at the Performing Arts Center on the Tri-campus. 7105 Highway 9, Felton, 95018

Our students watched the film with their teachers and the overwhelming response is that, while they had some criticism of the film, the majority of every class felt it very important that their parents view the film as well. We love it when our families can engage in important conversations with each other and their children. There is no doubt that the topic of screen time is an important one to ponder and make some decisions about. Parent involvement and support is so important to your students success and events like these are a good way to support your children’s education.

A brief discussion of the film will be offered right after the film.  

Tickets previously purchased will be honored. Tickets are a suggested donation of $10.  Please note:  Tickets and trailer for the film available at this NEW LINK:  

https://impactflow.com/event/presented-by-slvusd-charter-school-2178

You will receive a confirmation back from impact flow, which you need to bring with you to the event.  If you prefer to not purchase them online, they can also be purchased through your teachers or by contacting Danelle Matteson at 335-0932.

Again, Please take the time to read further about Screenagers.  If you are able to make it, I think you’ll enjoy it, and also enjoy talking with your kids about it afterward. This is a very important topic for our staff and we hope that you will attend the viewing on April 19th at 7 pm, in our Performing Arts Center on the SLVHS campus. Many of our high school students were not able to attend due to the conflict with a scheduled class. It would be great if they could come with you to the evening show.
