Joyful Readers and Early Release 2017-18-January 10, 2016

Sexton Mt. Families:

At our staff meeting this afternoon we talked about how to grow JOY-FILLED proficient readers. From kindergarten to fifth grade, there were two things we all can do (at school and home) to help children think deeply about text and develop a positive attitude about reading. 

1.  Make sure kids have access to LOTS of high interest books at their level. 
2.  Have AUTHENTIC questions about what kids are reading.    "What does this make you think about?" or "What have you learned by reading this?" are open ended and promote deeper thinking.

Thanks for partnering with us to grow JOY-FILLED readers.

Early Release/Teacher Collaboration

As you have heard, the Beaverton School District will implement a 90-minute early release on Wednesday afternoons beginning next school year (2017-2018), to allow teachers time to collaborate and participate in professional development opportunities.

The Beaverton School District has communicated with many local child care providers, after school programs and businesses regarding the new school schedule. Please contact your afterschool care provider to ensure they are aware of the change.  Consider scheduling your child’s doctor, dentist, or other appointments on Wednesday afternoons to minimize missing valuable class time.
Beginning in September 2017, dismissal times will be (subject to change as new schools and bus routes are added):
·      Elementary schools that start at 8:00 a.m. will dismiss at 1:05 p.m.
·      Elementary schools that start at 8:30 a.m. will dismiss at 1:35 p.m.
·      Schools housed at Timberland during rebuilds will dismiss at 2:25 p.m.
·      Middle schools will dismiss at 2:10 p.m.
·      High schools will dismiss at 1:00 p.m.
·      ACMA will dismiss at 12:40 pm.
·      Bridges Academy will dismiss at 1:00 p.m.
·      Health & Science, SST, ISB, Rachel Carson and Merlo will dismiss at 12:35 p.m.

The Early Release/Teacher Collaboration webpage has a wealth of information including animated videos explaining the change and an updated Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
