PBIS: Don't Squeal Unless its a Big Deal

Dear Mountain View Families,

This month, the DCSD Student Wellness and Prevention Framework topic is “How and When to Report”. The Mountain View PBIS committee is encourag-ing all staff and families to have conversations around this topic. At our primary level, we are directing most of our conversation around the differences between tattling and reporting. We will also be having conversation about what to do when it’s decided that the behavior in question does warrant a report. We will be watching a read aloud video created by Mrs. Jacques. In the video, she will be reading the story, Don’t Squeal Unless it’s a Big Deal by Jeanie Ranson. You can watch the video at home with your family by clicking HERE. Staff also has access to the Framework Handout, Tattling vs. Reporting, which you can view by clicking HERE , to help guide and solidify student understanding.

After watching the video in class, each teacher will be prompting students to dis-cuss the difference between reporting and tattling. We’ll learn that the first step when someone does something hurtful is to address it with an ‘I sentence’ such as, “I feel __ when you ___. Please stop.” Then, if the behavior continues step two is to talk to an adult about it. We’ll learn that proper reporting is an im-portant part of keeping our school family safe, which is all of our responsibili-ties!

Finally, we encourage you to continue the conversation about the differences between reporting and tattling, as well as what to do when it is necessary to re-port at home or at school. Thank you!

In Partnership,

Mountain View Elementary

Attendance Matters!

If students don't show up for school regularly, they miss out on fundamental reading and math skills and the chance to build a habit of good attendance that will carry them into college and careers. Attendance matters as early as kindergarten. Studies show many children who miss too many days in kindergarten and first grade can struggle academically in later years. They often have trouble mastering reading by the end of third grade. Please join Mountain View with perfect February attendance.

Has your child mentioned PDLs? One of the PDLs offered is a recipe making class.

In the class students learn about HOW to make a recipe, different units of measurement and they even get into a little science with how cooking has changing properties. One 2nd grader, Alek, enjoys his recipe class with Ms. Rose SO MUCH that he decided to make one of the recipes for his class for Valentine’s Day! This recipe is called KISSed Pretzel S’mores and here is a picture of his work! Ask your 2nd grader about their PDLs today!

 

In Social Studies, 1st graders are learning about US Landmarks, Monuments and Symbols. Specfically, 1st graders are learning about the following & symbols: Washington Monument, the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, the Statue of Liberty and the Liberty Bell, the US Capitol the bald eagle (did you know that bald is from the old English piebald which means white headed?), and the American Flag!

Additionally, in honor of Presidents’ Day, students have been delving into the biographies of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson.

Energy is the name of the game in February for Ms. Grever’s Class. They have explored light, sound and heat energy. The students discussed each type of energy and then sorted them not only into their primary category, but then went further and delineated into man-made versus natural energy. Next time you’re in your kitchen - ask you students about the types of energy they see or hear - don’t forget the natural types! For the last week of February, Ms. Grever’s class will be learning about our solar system! They will also start to dig deeper and look at Earth from outer space, learn about the planets and of course astronauts! They read Otter In Space to figure out what an astronaut may need in outer space!

Ms. Rolinger’s Classes have been wor king on 3D shapes - in the pictures below they are exploring cubes - ask your child what sides, vertices, and edges are! In Science news, her classes have been learning about the weather. The have been discussing the attributes of weather, types of weather and what can affect or change the weather. In the pictures below they are learning about windsocks, and discussing how windsocks are used to learn more about the weather. This week their book is Beaver Hears and Echo. This is a story about a little beaver who wants a friend and starts crying and hears someone else crying. Not only does he learn what an echo (and so will your students), but he just happens to make some friends along the way :)

MVE art students are incorporating exploration and play into their classes. Ms.Ott, our art teacher, calls these days “art parties.” On these days, students as a class get to choose materials they will use and then they get the opportunity to rotate through each material. During the art parties, Ms. Ott chooses questions for students to ponder as they go through their table rotations. These questions help guide the discovery of what they are creating and to help make the process purposeful & meaningful. The intent is for the students not to create for the questions, but rather for themselves.

In this particular art party, Ms.Ott asked: “Why should I explore?” “Why is de-sign important?” “Who decides what is considered beautiful?” What is most im-portant to me?” Why should I express my feelings?” and “What can I do to solve a problem?”

Classes earn these art parties though a point system; points that they earn during ‘regular’ art classes. And, Ms. Ott created these art parties as a way for students to ‘be kids’ and let them explore and find their inner artist!

IT IS TIME TO OPEN ENROLL!!
