    School Announcements

    Need an Idea for doing something Kind? Check out the Kindness Tree in the ROY CLOUD MUB... The character trait for the month of February was Kindness. I taught 19 classroom lessons this month in grades K-8, where we either read a story for the younger grades called "Fluffy and Baron", or read actual articles from around the United States of schools taking on the kindness challenge. I proposed this challenge to our students and staff! I asked them to think of something kind to do for others in either our school, home, or community, and to write what they plan to do on a kind heart. You will find approximately 540 ways to show kindness on both our kindness tree located in the MUB and on my School Counselor's Corner Bulletin Board, adjacent to the staff lounge!! Roy Cloud students sure do know how to show kindness!! - Julie Stringfield, Roy Cloud School Counselor

    Message from the Principal

    Dear Parents, This week I had the pleasure of talking with Nick in 6th grade about how he felt about working with the chromebooks. He said, "I like them. They are fun to work on. It is boring to just work on paper." Nick also went on to explain that he loves to type, and that when he gets to high school he will need to be able to type a lot. He said, "I don't have a computer at home, so this helps me have an advantage when I get to high school." Nick recalled how they used the chromebooks in science to research topics that are discussed in the books. This helps them get even more information than they would not get if they just read the books. Nick also shared how they made presentations about their results from an experiment that they did in class. - Dana Hardester

    Message from the Principal

    Dear Parents, Something New in Mr. T's Class. Mr. Tsivikas' classroom had a new monitor system installed over the weekend. The older projector in his room was really dim and displaying black dots over every image. Instead of replacing it with a similar projector, we wanted to see a if large monitor with airplay technology would be a better option. Since the cost of flatscreen TV/monitors have decreased dramatically in the last few years, they are now similar to the cost of LCD projectors. So far the class thinks it is a great improvement! When I went in to this 5th grade class on Tuesday, I saw one of the student's lessons being projected on the monitor. The student, Anna, was demonstrating how to open her Google Drive and how to turn in assignments with Google Classroom. Anna said that she used screencast to video what she was doing, and spoke into a microphone to tape her voice giving the directions. I asked Anna what she thought about the new system. She said that it was cool because they can see things a lot clearer. They can show their work to everyone from their Chromebooks. The sound is much better, and everyone can see from anywhere in the classroom. Anna remarked that she feels like they are now using technology to help them learn. We hope to continue to replace other failing projectors with a similar set up. If you have interest in this project, please let me know.

    Message from the Principal

    Dear Parents, If you were to walk onto our campus on any given day, you would find students using technology in a variety of ways. Even in my brief walkthrough today, this is what I found: In third grade, I found Mrs. Shanks class doing a science lesson. Students were using the Chromebooks to access PBSkids.org to research inertia, friction, force, and sound.  From there, they will be using the FOSS Science kits to further investigate what they researched.

    In fifth grade I found Ms. Rivoli's class using the Chromebooks to access Accelerated Reader and working toward meeting their reading goals. Students set their reading goals, and use Accelerated Reader to track their progress. Ms. Rivoli has access to their account, can review their work, and monitor both areas of strength, and improvement.

    In eighth grade I found Mr. O'Brien's students were using Edmodo to take a quiz.The students regularly use Edmodo to have online class discussions, share work and resources, and comment on questions that Mr. O'Brien poses to the class.

    It is fascinating to see how our students are using technology to enhance their learning. The Common Core standards not only have rigorous academic standards, but they also encourage students be powerful communicators, collaborators, and demonstrate critical thinking. For some of us, this is very different from when we were in school! Looking forward, one of our goals is to improve projection systems in the classrooms. The teachers and the students are producing such high quality work with technology, but our older projectors make it really difficult to see images and text clearly. Often teachers have to turn off all the lights in order for students to see the screen, and even then the images are difficult to read. In addition, only certain laptops are able to connect to our outdated projectors, so students can't easily project and share their work with the class. New projection systems will not only drastically improve how students can see resources, but they will also allow for all classrooms to better utilize all of the technology that has been purchased with parent donations over the years - the iPads & Chromebooks. With your continued support, we hope to move toward the models that our students will be using in high school, college, and business. The days of poster board are numbered and we are on our way to preparing our students for the future!

    3rd Grade Choices

    We know that some of you will be making a decision about whether or not to attend North Star.

On Wednesday, February 11th,we will have an information night at 6:30 in the library. Please join us.

    Dear Parents, A new feature to our school newsletter: Each week we will have a featured classroom. This week's Featured Classroom is Mrs. Shanks! Mrs. Shanks Class completed a writing project on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. They wrote about Dr. King's Dream, their own dream, and five things they could do to make others feel good. Breanna R. said that her dream was "for people to make the best out of the worst day and the rich to give to the poor." Breanna liked this project because "we got to learn about Martin Luther King Jr. and have fun." When I asked Breanna what she learned about Dr. King, she replied, "He wanted to make a difference. He had kids, and he wanted his kids to be judged by things like their sense of humor - not the color of their skin."

    The Book Fair was a Success!

    Thank you to everyone who supported the Scholastic book fair held in December. We were able to net approximately $9000!! These credits from Scholastic will be used to purchase needed books and other materials for the school library for all grades to use. Special thanks to Linda Brobeck and Steffani Lera for leading the effort for this event. In addition, thanks to the over 30 parent volunteers who helped at the book fair! Wow, it takes a village!

    Jog-a-thon 2015

    On May 15, 2015, Roy Cloud students and teachers will be facing the circular obstacle know as... the Jog-A-Thon! On Thursday, May 7, 2015, Roy Cloud PARENTS and GRANDPARENTS will be facing their own challenge... the Family Jog-A-Thon! Yes, that's right - are you faster than your 3rd grader? This is a great way to commit to your New Year's Resolution and be a great role model for your Roy Cloud student! The suspense is already building! Which group of adults can run farther? The dads? The moms? Can the parents of the lower grades outrun the parents of the upper grades? Can the parents outrun the kids? Will more moms or dads lace-up their sneakers? Sign up for the Parent Jog-A-Thon here. For more information, or to help with the Jog-A-Thon, check out our website: https://sites.google.com/a/sjsu.edu/2015-jog-a-thon/

If you have already completed the survey, thank you! ~Dana Hardester

    Dear Parents,

    This year we had more than 400 of our students participate in the Hour of Code. The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anyone can learn basics. It is strongly believed that everyone should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.
