January 16th

Jan. 19 early out

The early out activity for Thursday, Jan. 19, will be crafting thumbies and kazoos from 1 until 2 p.m. for all Solon students. Thumbies are little drawings made out of fingerprints. The kids will stamp their fingerprints on paper and then draw little designs like animals and faces out of the fingerprint. The kazoos will be made from cardboard paper rolls. No registration is required. Elementary age students participating need to be picked up by their parent or caregiver at 2 p.m.
The next movie will be on early out Thursday, Feb. 2, from 1 until 3 p.m.

Winter book sale Feb. 4

Mark your calendar. Friends of the Solon library will hold their winter book sale on Saturday, Feb. 4. Many items have already been collected. In addition to over 3,000 books, there will be over 50 puzzles (all $1 or less), a few board games, 20-plus cake pans (priced 50 cents-$1), and at least 100 stuffed animals (25-50 cents). If you are cleaning out after Christmas, we still have room for your donated books, DVDs, CDs and gift items.

Babygarten in February

Babygarten will be resuming on Wednesday, Feb. 22, from 9:30 until 10:30 a.m. Children from newborn through 24 months, and their caregivers, may come to any or all sessions. There is no registration. The program includes 20 to 25 minutes of rhymes and songs followed by 30 minutes of play time. This program is specifically designed for one-on-one involvement between parent and child, but an occasional extra sibling would be welcome.

January story time guest

On Tuesday, Jan. 24, Gwen Prentice from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources will be our story time guest. Gwen will be sharing her knowledge of the world of nature through the eyes of preschoolers. On Tuesday, Jan. 31, the theme will be the letter “T.” Storytime meets at 10:30 a.m. every Tuesday and is open to children ages two to five, their caregivers and siblings.

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. Ann Valenta, retired Spanish teacher, will be monitoring the first meeting and will assist in setting up a format and future meeting schedule. These sessions will be for on-line participants desiring to practice speaking the language, and not lessons for learning the language.

Thursday, Jan. 12: Start of semester 2/Q3
Monday, Jan. 16: Professional day– no school
Thursday, Jan. 19: Early out– 1 p.m.

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.

Third grade vocal concert

The third graders have been working hard to prepare a concert showing their ability to sing, read and play the notes in a round. Please join them on Thursday, Jan. 12, at 6:30 p.m., in the middle school auditorium, to hear them perform. Students have been practicing beginning harmony with their voices and instruments. They will be singing and playing several instruments.
