Spanish conversation group begins Jan. 28

To supplement the on-line language program, “Tell Me More,” the library will be sponsoring a weekly Spanish conversation group beginning on Jan. 28 from 11 a.m. until noon in the meeting room.

These sessions will be for on-line participants desiring to practice speaking the language, and not lessons for learning the language.

SCSD professional development

Solon Community School District (SCSD) staff members regularly engage in their own learning during 1 p.m. early dismissals. Staff development time is an opportunity for individuals and teams to focus on areas in which our data indicates we could do a better job of helping students learn essential concepts and skills. In order to monitor progress, a website was created at the beginning of the 2010-2011 academic year. The SCSD professional development website has received multiple updates and revisions over the past year. A professional development calendar is viewable on the front page.

Standards-based grading

The 2011-2012 district study states, “SCSD stakeholders will analyze and study aspects of standards-based grading and reporting at all grade levels.” At the Dec. 8 School Improvement Advisory Committee meeting, committee members listened to the perspectives of middle school and high school teachers and students as it relates to standards-based grading. Interested parents and community members are invited to view a video outlining the proposed changes at www.tinyurl.com/scsdsbgvideo

Kindergarten planning changes

Kindergarten Roundup will be held on Friday, April 13, at Lakeview Elementary, so the school is in the process of collecting the names of children in the SCSD who will be attending kindergarten during the fall of 2012. Children must turn five by Sept. 15 to be eligible to enroll in kindergarten.
If you have a child who will attend kindergarten next fall, collecting information will be different this year.

Fourth grade vocal concert

A frenzy of fourth graders will be performing their final elementary concert. Students will be performing their funny songs on Thursday, Jan. 12, at 7:30 p.m., in the middle school auditorium.

Boys lose lead at Maquoketa

SOLON– The Spartans played three good quarters, but they needed four.
A fourth-quarter drought cost Solon the lead and the game at Maquoketa last week, but the team bounced back from the 59-49 loss to defeat West Delaware at home, 58-42.
“We actually played pretty well at times,” Head Coach Brad Randall said of the loss. Solon was ahead 43-40 entering the fourth quarter, but the Spartans went 1-12 from the field and gave up eight offensive rebounds.
“It was just kind of mysterious,” Randall observed. “We absolutely could not get to the free throw line when we had to.”

Lady Spartans double up Cardinals

SOLON– One more little home stand and then it’s on the road for the Lady Spartans.
Solon’s girls will host Central DeWitt and Independence this week, then six of the next seven are on the opposition’s court.
The Lady Spartans walloped Maquoketa at home last Tuesday, 49-25, but let West Delaware slip by in a 50-42 loss Friday in Manchester.
Solon was held to a single point in third quarter at West Delaware after having a halftime lead.
