Madison earns Distinguished School status for 3rd consecutive year

posted May 9, 2020, 5:42 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated May 9, 2020, 5:42 AM ]


Badge


For the third consecutive year, Madison has earned Distinguished School status in the Project Lead the Way STEM program. That recognition requires that Gateway to Technology units be offered at each grade level, that at least 50% of the student body participates, and at least 25% of the students advancing to high school participate in two or more units while in middle school. There are only eight other middle schools in the state which received that recognition for 2019-20, including Central Middle School in Bartlesville.  The recognition reflects the outstanding courses taught by teachers Shannon McKinney and Rachel Hough.

All six of the district’s elementary schools, both of its middle schools, and its high school each earned Distinguished School status for 2019-20. Bartlesville is one of just 24 districts across the U.S. to receive the honor of being a Distinguished District and the only district with that status in Oklahoma. PLTW is a nonprofit organization that provides STEM curricula to millions of PreK-12 students and teachers in schools across the U.S.

Bartlesville Public Schools offers PLTW Launch (K-5), PLTW Gateway (6-8), and PLTW Computer Science and Engineering courses at Bartlesville High School, with additional Engineering offerings available for students at Tri-County Tech.

Bartlesville Superintendent Chuck McCauley commented, “We are proud of this recognition for the quality, breadth, and depth of our STEM offerings in Bartlesville. This achievement reflects the hard work of many students and teachers as well as tremendous community support. The Bartlesville Public Schools Foundation joined with community partners, including ConocoPhillips, to fund our elementary PLTW Launch program. Our middle school and high school programs are housed in suites provided by a major grant from Phillips 66 and depend on state and federal funding as well as local bond issues. ConocoPhillips has been a continuing partner for the Technology Student Association in our secondary schools. We are truly blessed.”

This is the first year the district’s six elementary schools could qualify as Distinguished Schools, which required that at least two STEM modules be offered at each grade level with 75% or higher participation in the prior year. The district curriculum will expand this next year to four STEM modules in every classroom from kindergarten through fifth grade. Only 14 other elementary schools in the state have received Distinguished School recognition for 2019-20.

This is the second consecutive year that Bartlesville High School’s Computer Science program earned Distinguished School status, and the Engineering program at Bartlesville High School and Tri-County Tech also again received that recognition this year. So two of the 11 high school programs in the state receiving Distinguished School recognition are in Bartlesville. They had to provide at least three high school courses in the pathway, have at least 25% of students participate or have 33% of participating students take two or more PLTW courses, and have 95% of PLTW students complete End-of-Course assessments.

Through PLTW programs, students develop in-demand knowledge and skills that they will use both in school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take. As PLTW students progress through grades PreK-12, they are empowered to engage in problem-solving and process thinking, develop technical knowledge and skills, build communication skills, and explore career opportunities. Bartlesville now offers complete computer science and engineering pathways from kindergarten through 12th grade.

“It is a great honor to recognize Bartlesville Public Schools for their commitment to providing students with an excellent educational experience,” said Dr. Vince Bertram, President and CEO of PLTW. “They should be very proud of their work to ensure students have the knowledge and skills to be career-ready and successful on any career path they choose.” 

Bartlesville Public Schools is part of a community of public schools, colleges, universities, and corporate and philanthropic partners across the country united around a passion for providing students with inspiring, engaging, and empowering learning opportunities. For more information about PLTW’s recognition program, visit pltw.org/our-programs/program-recognition.

MMS Locker Cleanouts and Check-ins on May 20-21

posted May 8, 2020, 9:52 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated May 9, 2020, 6:25 AM ]

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your patience as we have navigated through this process. I am so happy with how most of our students have completed their school year. We certainly miss them and we are hopeful we get to start next school year normal. At this time, we cannot let anyone in the school building. However, we do need to get your students all of the items left in lockers. We would prefer that students clean them out, but that will not be able to happen this year. We will bag all of the items left in lockers and label each bag with the student’s name. Mrs. Axsom and I are going to personally help bag all of the lockers. Each grade level will have a different pick-up time. If you are unable to pick up your child’s items, we will plan an alternative pick up at a later date. 

The pick up times will be as follows:

  • 6th grade - May 20th - 9am-12pm
  • 7th grade - May 20th - 1pm-4pm
  • 8th grade - May 21st - 9am-12pm

You will drive through the front drive; this is separate from the meals drive-through around the sides and back of the building.

Please do not get out of the vehicle. You will tell us the name of the child and we will retrieve your locker bag.

If you ordered a yearbook, you can pull up and get the yearbook. If you are returning library books, you will put them in the designated box. 

Gym lockers will be bagged by coach Blain and available for pickup.

If you play a musical instrument, your instructor will be in contact with you if you are returning it. This will not be a drop-off day for instruments. Most of our students will keep their instruments and practices over the summer. 

Chromebooks and any cellular hotspots should NOT be turned in. That way students can continue to benefit from them.

This is definitely not how we would like to say goodbye and have a good summer, but it is what we will need to do for this year. Thank you again for your flexibility as we get through this school year. 

Sincerely,

Joey Eidson

Final tech drive-through on May 13

posted Mar 31, 2020, 10:21 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated May 9, 2020, 6:30 AM ]

Distance learning for middle and high school students is online with the student's take-home Chromebook. If a middle school or high school student was issued a take-home Chromebook that is damaged or missing, then please take advantage of our final Chromebook swap drive-through at Bartlesville High School for this school year on Wednesday, May 13 from 10-11 a.m.

You can pull up in the loop drive off Hillcrest Drive, but please don't get out of your vehicle unless instructed to do so. Mrs. Meador will address Chromebook issues directly in front of the school, while for hotspots you would pull on around toward the exit for help from Mr. Michel.

Chromebook issues

Mrs. Meador, the Student Technology Support Team teacher, will need to know which school the student attends and his or her name (or ID number, if known). Please maintain proper 6-foot social distancing when dropping off a Chromebook or charger where directed. Mrs. Meador will place any replacement device at a separate spot which you may retrieve when instructed.

Mrs. Meador will not be checking insurance status nor assessing any fees until after the event each week when it is safe for her to evaluate and repair submitted devices.

Cellular hotspots

The new Connected Bruins program can provide, upon request, a cellular hotspot for a middle or high school student who lacks home internet service. Please see the online description of that program.

Hotspots can only provide about an hour of streaming video per day. So if you have no home internet service, please review the following options which can provide better access to streaming video:

Virus precautions

posted Mar 2, 2020, 8:55 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Mar 3, 2020, 5:54 AM ]

Everyone is understandably concerned about the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) and its potential impact on schools.  The district is already reviewing its cleaning plans and will be reviewing its emergency plans in case community spread of the disease eventually becomes a local issue.

At this time, it is important that we rely on prevention. The following guidelines will benefit everyone in controlling the far more pervasive influenza viruses as well.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. District restrooms are equipped with soap, which is preferred over hand sanitizers.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water, not sanitizer, if hands are visibly dirty.
OTHER PRECAUTIONS
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow the CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask:
    • CDC does NOT recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to  others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Avoid sharing food.


Q: What are the symptoms and complications that COVID-19 can cause?
A: Current symptoms reported for patients with COVID-19 have included mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Read about COVID-19 Symptoms.

Q: Should I be tested for COVID-19?
A: If you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath, within 14 days after travel from areas where CDC has identified community spread of coronavirus, you should call ahead to a healthcare professional and mention your recent travel or close contact. 

If you have had close contact with someone showing these symptoms who has recently traveled from such an area, you should call ahead to a healthcare professional and mention your close contact and their recent travel. 

Your healthcare professional will work with the state public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
