December News From Glen Meadow School

 

Hello Parents and Guardians! Enjoy reading some of the activities taking place at Glen Meadow this month…

Thank you to Vernon Township High School! On November 27th, the 8th grade was treated to a high school pep rally. We thank the VTHS Marching Band, Cheerleaders, Theatrical Group, and multiple athletes for presenting the programs at Vernon High School. Dr. Anderson, the VTHS principal, addressed the students and introduced the program. What a great high-energy program this was.

 

Vernon Lights Festival: Due to our snow day on Monday, December 2nd and Tuesday, December 3rd, our trip to the Vernon Light Park for all grade levels has been postponed. We are working with the organizers of The Vernon Light Park to arrange for another date for all three grade levels. An announcement for the new dates will be forthcoming. A School Messenger alert will be sent to you. 

Builder’s Club collecting pop tabs: The GMMS Kiwanis Builder’s Club members conduct various service-learning projects for our community. “The Builders” are holding a “pop tab” drive to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. Check out the commercial the students created to promote their drive.

 

Updating your contact information: Now that the winter is around the corner, you are reminded to update your contact information in Genesis. You should also make sure that you have all checked the boxes for the phones you want to receive school information. You can receive emails in addition to phone calls. Please call the main office if you need any assistance with updating your contact information; we’d be happy to assist you!

Spirit Week: Our Student Ambassadors are leading a holiday Spirit Week the week of December 16th. The Ambassadors will also be holding “Penny Wars” between each grade level during the weeks of December 9th and 16th.

Message from our Director of Technology, Mr. Shea: Many of you may have read the email sent by our Director of Technology where he discussed the misuse of our Chromebooks that have been given to each student. Mr. Shea and I have noticed a significant uptick in the amount of “gaming” activity taking place during the school day, many of which have an inappropriate amount of violence in the games. We also have noticed students are listening to music a lot during school hours. In an attempt to remind our students of the purpose of using Chromebook, Mr. Shea is limiting sites that students can access. Students will continue to work on Schoology and get to sites needed for academic purposes only. Some Chromebook facts:

  • The IT department has performed 104 repairs on GM Chromebooks this school year – 47 of those repairs were broken screens.
  • 71 GM students were ‘Locked Out’ on November 27th on their Chromebooks in the first hour

Introducing our AP Corner…

As Mrs. MacDougall serves in the role of Acting Assistant Principal, she would like to communicate some of her initiatives from “the upstairs office”…

During my first month as Acting Assistant Principal, I have enjoyed getting to know students and parents/guardians, both in the hallways and my office.  Furthermore, the remarkable dedication and care for students’ success that is seen each day while working alongside faculty and staff at GMMS cannot be understated.  I am looking forward to the month ahead.

It’s New Year’s in December!  Starting this month, we will be making small changes in the way we do things at Glen Meadow with the hopes of big outcomes.  Each week, a new goal will be announced during the morning announcements.  Here is what to expect:

Tech-Free Tuesday:  In an effort to reduce screen time and increase positive social interactions with peers, each Tuesday during recess, students will take a break for technology and leave their Chromebooks in their lockers or on shelves in the cafeteria.  Last week, Mrs. Gebhardt and I spoke with students during lunches about this initiative.  Students will continue to have the option of going outside, weather permitting, and will now have access to card games, board games, and more.    Please note, these games will be available to sign out during indoor recess every day.   In addition, if you would like to donate any games and activities to this cause, please send items in with your student.   Please check out this article:  Brain Benefits of Unplugging

Weekly Goals: Students at GMMS will also work on goals related to ways to demonstrate respect and kindness towards teachers and peers on a daily basis.  These goals will range from using respectful greetings to being mindful of having a hall pass and other appropriate school etiquette practices.  Thank you for your support in asking your child about the goal of the week.

As we enter December and thoughts move toward the Winter Break, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very happy and healthy holiday season! I hope that you will have a chance to relax and enjoy some special times with your children, extended families, and friends. As I have said many times in the past, the long lasting effects of time well spent with family and even more significant, the importance of the time spent with your children will far outlast any laptop,  iPhone or XBOX.

 

Just as a reminder, the district calendar has changed and Friday, December20th will now be an early dismissal day with students returning to school on Thursday, January 2nd, 2020.

 

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:

 

In the event your child will be absent, or late due to illness, or for any reason, please call the school attendance line at 973 – 764 – 2787 or you may enter the absence on the parent portal. This call may be made at any time, but we would appreciate it if it was made before 9:00 a.m. on the day of the absence (973 – 764 – 5590) if you need to speak directly with our nurse, Ms. Muller). If your child is absent and has not been called out of school, an automated call will be made by the school to verify your child’s absence. Please try to call or enter the absence as per the instructions above, as an email to the teacher or nurse may not be checked prior to the automated process above taking place. 

 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work together to ensure the safety of our students.  

 

Wishing you and your family all the very best as we begin to wind down 2019!

Hallway Highlights at “The Meadow”…

Dear Glen Meadow Families,

We welcome Mrs. Suzanne MacDougall as our Acting Assistant Principal of Glen Meadow. Mrs. MacDougall is filling in for Dr. Kosek who is covering for Mr. Mudrick at Lounsberry Hollow. Mrs. MacDougall is looking forward to serving in her new role at Glen Meadow. She looks forward to meeting students and parents and encouraging our students to reach their 100% (like the Glen Meadow Way says…). Mrs. MacDougall has recently been inspired by our Superintendent’s message that we can choose our attitude, our effort, and our actions. 

Mrs. MacDougall

 

Here are some hallway highlights of activities taking place in the classrooms of Glen Meadow…

Miss Frazita’s Math Classes: Who says games are for little kids? Miss Frazita’s students practiced math skills by playing familiar childhood games, but the games they played have a math focus:

-Fraction Land

-Sorry! Math Edition

-Trouble! Math Edition

Students also worked in centers to continue practicing what they are learning in class and applied their skills to everyday problem-solving. Centers included:

Dice Center: students rolling dice to compare numbers and race to complete the comparisons first

Coding Center: students use the code on the top of the sheet to compare quantities in picture form

War Center: students used cards to compare quantities and kept the cards if they had the greater quantity, the winner had the most cards at the end!

Shopping Center: students compared quantities to find the best deal!

Mr. DeYoung’s Foundations Lab Class: Mr. DeYoung technology students completed a “Radio Station Project,” where they had to create their own station ID, come up with a 5-song playlist with working links, and record themselves doing intros/outros, and a weather report. All content had to be organized and scripted.

Students also used Adobe Spark to create a short PSA where they also recorded themselves, and all work was embedded on their student Google Site project page.

At the end of the project, students had a Google Hangouts session with some of the board members of WTSR 91.3FM, Mr. DeYoung’s college radio station at TCNJ, where students were given a live video tour of the station, the newsroom, production room, offices, music library, and were also able to ask the station manager, music director, and news director questions about day-to-day operations using the library and the new camera/mic system that the IT department purchased and installed. This activity had multiple real-world applications; students were very engaged during this motivational project.

Concord Hymn: After Mrs. Ragone’s 8th-grade Language Arts students wrote their Patriot’s Pens essays, they studied the poem “Concord Hymn” written by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Students worked in a group to study the poem and creatively interpret the poem. The groups wrote a poem interpretation of “Concord Hymn”, others created a model of the Concord Monument, another group gave the history of the poem, and finally, a group acted out their interpretation of the poem. What a great way to learn about and understand poetry!

Editing through Centers: Mrs. Schmidt’s 8th-grade students edited their Miracle Worker essays by working in centers to focus on different aspects of the writing process. At each station, they used different colored pens to help with the revising and editing process.

Sticks and Spoons: Mrs. Basso and Mrs. Zaremba’s Language Arts class tried a new activity called “Sticks and Spoons” to encourage equitable participation and collaboration. The students in the class were assigned groups and read a chapter of So Far From the Bamboo Grove with their groups.  Students were given lots of options…they could have one person read aloud, take turns reading aloud, or all read silently. The students were given five questions to discuss.  Once the students began the activity, the teachers In this strategy, the teachers assigned each table group a color on a stick and each student a number on a spoon. During class discussions, the teachers pick pulled a stick and a spoon to call on a group and a student in the group. Instead of having the same students always raising their hands in class, this activity allowed different students to be able to participate in the class discussion and they were able to discuss the answer with their teammates before saying the answer encouraging collaboration. Everyone enjoyed the activity and everyone was engaged.

What’s Your Anti-Drug? In its 19th year, sponsored by the Center for Prevention and Counseling, hundreds of Sussex County students submit drawings, stories, and photographs of their “anti-drug” for judging. This year we have three students who won the “anti-drug” campaign. Congratulations to Paul Mele, 8th grade, whose anti-drug is photography. Paul submitted one of his many outdoor scene photographs; Megan Calkin, 8th grade, whose “anti-drug” is horseback riding; and Dakota Resto, 6th grade, whose “anti-drug” is art. These students will be honored at this year’s Vernon Coalition’s Town Hall Meeting in April 2020, held at Glen Meadow Middle School.

 

Green Team: Mrs. Vaszlavik and her Green Team students have begun to collect plastic that will be recycled. The Glen Meadow Green Team will once again participate in a nationwide contest the “Trex School Challenge”.  Trex makes a compost material using several materials, one of which is plastic film packaging.  Last year, our school collected 2,010 pounds of plastic film.  From last year’s collection, we won Trex benches that are in the front of our school. The Green Team will continue the plastic film collection this year. The class that collects the most plastic will win a pizza party! Please view this short video from Trex about our recycling program. This video explains what is accepted. The picture below is one plastic film collection that our Green Team collected from all homerooms…that’s A LOT of plastic!!

 

Teen Child Assault Prevention Program: Teen CAP Adult Guide for parents of 8th-grade students. 8th-grade students will have the Teen CAP program in their social studies classes this month.

Vernon Lights Festival: Glen Meadow is excited to be invited to be one of the first groups to walk through the light festival themes on the grounds of the former Camp Sussex! Our 6th-graders will be going on Monday, December 2, 7th graders on Tuesday, December 3, and 8th graders on Wednesday, December 4. There is no charge for this special field trip. Please encourage your child to dress warmly and wear proper footwear as this is an outdoor activity. Check out the Vernon Lights Festival website.

Operation Parent:  Operationparent.org is an excellent website for parents of middle school and high school students. It contains multiple resources for parents raising teenagers. Check out the site for informational webinars and more. Here is a helpful video on cyberbullying and how you can monitor your child online.
