Dear Parents,

This weekend is a Family Appreciation Weekend, which means no homework will be assigned.  We hope you can enjoy the weekend, filled with good weather, cookouts, ball games, and families.

One of the goals that the Fowler School Improvement Council established was to strengthen communication and relationships with families.  Thus a survey was created to gather feedback from parents to help Fowler become stronger in this area.

Below is a link to access the survey, which should only take a few minutes to complete.

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WHM33G5

Thanks in advance for doing the survey.

Dear Parents,

Last week the Fowler Fair was a huge success!  We raised more than $2500 to be used to help support our students in many ways.  Thank you to all the students and families who joined in the fun.  A special thank you to all the Fowler staff who worked at the fair.  I am so appreciative of the culture we have at Fowler, which reflects a deep investment in making a difference for our students and families.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Next week the second round of PARCC testing will begin for our students.  We have a small window to conduct the testing, so attendance is very important.  Please help your child to prepare by making sure they arrive to school on time, receive a good night of sleep, and have a healthy breakfast.  Students will participate in a short physical activity before the test, can bring a snack to school, and can chew gum or a hard candy during the test.  Teachers will not assign homework or studying during the night before a test.  We want the students to be well rested and focused.

Please reinforce the message given by teachers and encourage your child to work hard and do their best.  Your child's daily work and practice at school provides the best preparation for the PARCC.

Spring Testing Schedule

Grades 4, 6, and 7 will be doing the PARCC Assessment and Grade 5 will do the PARCC Assessment and the MCAS Assessment.

Tuesday           May 19          Practice Grades 4-7

Raise money for next year’s Nature’s Classroom! Beginning on Monday, May 4, grades are competing against each another to collect the most pennies to win a prize for their grade (to be determined). Each penny you put in your grade’s water jug will gain points for your grade. If  someone puts a nickel, dime, quarter, or dollars in your grade’s water jug, it will deduct points from your grade’s overall score.

Example: Each penny is worth one point. Nickels will deduct 5 points, a dime will deduct 10 points, a quarter will deduct 25 points, a dollar will deduct 100 points and a five dollar bill will deduct 500 points, etc.

The donation bins are at Green Meadow School, Middlesex Bank, Maynard Public Library and Fine Arts Theater.  Please help us make those transitions easier by donating!  The bins will be out until Friday, May 22.  If you have any questions, please contact Justine St. John at (978) 790-2911.  Thank you!

Fowler Community Fair...Save the Date

This spring, the Fowler School invites your family to attend the Annual Fowler Community Fair.  On Friday, May 8, from 3:00-6:00 pm, Fowler staff will be sponsoring a fundraiser to support students with school events such as Nature’s Classroom, activity fees, field trips, after school programs, and more.

Some of the fun activities planned include a train ride, bake sale, face painting, shooting hoops, flower sale, Treasure Chest, bouncy castle, music, giant sling shot, and of course a dunk tank (wouldn’t you love to dunk your favorite teacher?).

This event is also a terrific opportunity for Green Meadow students and families to get introduced to Fowler.

Donations are needed for the Treasure Chest to be held during Fair.  Items may be dropped off at school starting Monday, May 4.  The Treasure Chest is similar to a Yard Sale.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

From the PTO:

The cookie dough orders from our spring fundraiser will be delivered  THIS Tuesday, May 5th, and will be available for pick-up between 4-6 pm in the Fowler Lobby.   As all products are frozen, it is important that you pick up your order that day or make arrangements for someone else to get it for you, as we do not have the ability to store frozen food.  We appreciate your assistance with this.  We are also in need of people to help distribute the cookie dough on May 5th, if you have any availability between 4-6pm and would like to help, please email Sue at jimsueh@comcast.net
 
The Fowler Staff Appreciation Luncheon will be held Friday, May 8th, and the PTO is still looking for donations of salads (any kind), desserts and drinks.   Please consider helping with this to show your support and appreciation for the great teachers and staff at the Fowler School.  If you are able to help, please contact Lee at leemcdonagh@gmail.com .  Monetary donations are also accepted.  Thank you.

This week, the District Attorney's Office gave several presentations to students and parents about safely using technology.  Below you will find several apps that can be considered dangerous for our students.  We are fortunate to have a strong connection with the Middlesex Partnerships for Youth, who provide excellent resources, speakers, and conferences for our schools.

9 Most Dangerous Apps for Kids

            Whisper - This app allows you to post secrets anonymously and also allows you to chat with other users in your geographic area.

            Why It’s Dangerous: Many children are drawn to communicating with strangers, feeling that their secrets are safer with them than with their friends. This app is a perfect tool for ill-intentioned strangers looking to connect with young people because it allows you to exchange messages with people nearest to you (so anonymity can be easily lost).

            YikYak  - All Yik Yak users are anonymous. They don’t create a profile or account, but they can post comments that are accessible to the nearest 500 people (within a 1-5 mile radius). A psychiatrist called this the most dangerous app he’d ever seen because it “can turn a school into a virtual chat room where everyone can post his or her comments, anonymously. Untruthful, mean, character-assassinating short messages are immediately seen by all users in a specific geographic area.”

            Why It’s Dangerous: This app is causing problems in schools across the United States, with students maliciously slandering teacher, staff, and other students. In fact, several schools have now banned smart phones from campus because of this particular app.

            Kik - A free app-based alternative texting service that allows texts/pictures to be sent without being logged in the phone history. (Similar apps: Viber, WhatsApp, TextNow)

            Why It’s Dangerous – Makes it easier for your child to talk to strangers without your knowledge since it bypasses the wireless providers’ short message services (SMS). Children also think they can “sext” without parents finding out. In addition, strangers can send your child a “friend request.”

            Snapchat – Allows you to capture an image or video and make it available to a recipient for a specific time. After that time limit is up, the picture/video automatically disappears forever…or so Snapchat claims. (Similar apps: Poke, Wire, and Wickr)

            Why It’s Dangerous – Kids can receive (or send ) sexually inappropriate photos. This app also makes kids feel like they can “sext” or send inappropriate pictures without consequences because the image will self-destruct automatically. The truth is that nothing sent over the internet disappears. There are always ways to retrieve and capture those images.

            Vine – Allows users to watch and post six second videos. 

            Why It’s Dangerous –While many of the videos are harmless, porn videos do pop up into the feed, exposing your children to sexually explicit material. You can also easily search for/access porn videos on this app. Predators utilize this app to search for teens and find their location. Then they try to connect with them via other messaging apps.

            ChatRoulette and Omegle– These apps allow you to video chat with strangers.

            Why It’s Dangerous – Not only are users chatting with strangers, they could be chatting with a fake stranger. “Chat sites like Chatroulette and Omegle have done their best to produce systems that warns users when the people they are chatting to are potentially using fake webcam software, however developers still manage to slip under their radars with frequent updates.” So a fifty-year-old man could set up a fake webcam and use images from a 15-year-old boy that looks like a teen celebrity to convince your child to send inappropriate pictures or get information about your child’s location.

            Tinder – Users post pictures and scroll through the images of other users. When they think someone is attractive they can “flag” the image. If that person has also “flagged” them in return, the app allows you to contact them.

            Why It’s Dangerous – This app, and similar apps such as Down, Skout, Pure, and Blendr, are primarily used for hooking up.

            Poof – Hides other apps on your phone. You select which apps you would like to hide and their icons will no longer show up on your smartphone screen.

            Why It’s Dangerous – If children have apps that they want to keep hidden from their parents, all they have to do is download this app and “poof,” their screen is clear of any questionable apps. So, if you see the poof app on their phone, you may want to ask them what they are hiding.

Sensory Strategies for School Aged Kids

The Maynard SEPAC welcomes Karen Ditto, OTR/L to speak to parents and educators about "Sensory Strategies: Practical and effective strategies to use at home and in the classroom" on Monday, May 4, 2015 at 7pm in the Fowler Library, 3 Tiger Drive, Maynard, MA.  Sensory processing challenges occur when an individual has difficulty organizing an effective and appropriate response to sensory input.  The resulting dysregulation can present challenges when performing countless everyday tasks, including maintaining self-regulation, maneuvering through the environment, responding appropriately. Visibly, this could result in an appearance of clumsiness or weakness, behavioral problems, and difficulties at school and within groups.  Ms. Ditto has been an Occupational Therapist at the Green Meadow Elementary School in Maynard for 8 years and will present a number of strategies and resources parents and educators can use to help kids become better regulated and more productive.  This workshop is free and open to the public.  Please RSVP to sepacchair@maynard.k12.ma.us or 978-897-2705.

Notes from the Fowler Library

April is National Poetry Month

Fowler School celebrated Poetry Week with fun activities that promote this important literature!  Most students engage easily with this genre and it can be integrated into all subject areas.  A popular activity was The Memorize a Poem challenge.  It was open to all grades and there were 65 students who memorized and recited poems that were fifty or more words!  What a great way to encourage students to write, read and recite poetry!

Greek Mythology Club

Ten students from the Greek Mythology Club took the National Mythology Exam.... Georgia Wilson (5th Grade) and Chloe Donovan (7th Grade) both scored in or above 94% and received medals from The American Classics League!  Congratulations to them and the following students who took the exam; Abby Candela, Zack St. John, Owen Thayer, Owen Sullivan-Dale, Nadim Bazhod, Vincent Boothroyd and Ari Kiirikki.

The third annual Acton Boxboro PMC KIDS Ride is being planned; and will take place on June 7, 2015 from 8:30 – 12:00pm at Nara Park in Acton, MA and we are hoping to have 200+ kids of all ages participating in this event. Last year was our second year and folks like you helped make it a HUGE success with 144 riders raising over $17,000! Help us surpass last year's success by signing up today as a rider or volunteer! 

Pan Mass Challenge events have an unwavering commitment to finding a cure for cancer. Since its start in 1980, the PMC has raised over 5 billion dollars for cancer research and cancer care. Although each individual rider has a personal reason for taking part in the event, they are strongly united in their cause…cure cancer. The money raised from the PMC and PMC Kids rides accounts for over half of the total funding for the Jimmy Fund each year. On June 7, kids in Acton and Boxboro will join this established tradition of bike riding and fundraising for Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund. Make the commitment to join us because you want to help cure cancer! This ride is dedicated to all of our loved ones whose lives were cut short by cancer and to those who continue to inspire us as they live with cancer. The Acton Boxboro PMC Kids Ride will bring us "closer by the mile" to a cure!

Dear Parents,

I wish all of your families a happy and relaxing vacation.

When we return to school, Fowler will be celebrating Poetry Week, from April 27-May 1, 2015.  Thank you Mrs. Hayward for organizing and directing this event. 

Some of the activities include:

Morning Announcements - One student from each grade level will read a poem after the pledge;

Poem in Your Pocket - Students can carry a poem with them all week. If they are asked by an adult with a Poetry Gift Bag to read the poem, they will get a prize;

Lunch Time - There will be a supply of poems in the cafeteria.  Student volunteers can read a poem during lunch;

4th Grade - 
Using poster-sized paper, each homeroom writes an acrostic poem using the teacher's name;

5th Grade -
Using a selection of poetry books, each student chooses a poem or writes an original poem;
Each day, a student picks a poem from the box and reads it to the class;

6th Grade - 
Choose a favorite poem or write an original poem;
Create a decorative book mark, and give your book marks to a 4th grade class so each 4th grade student in that class receives one;

7th Grade -
Write diamante poems, which can be free-form or you can assign a topic relevant to your subject discipline.

Here are some poetry websites you can explore and use.

Staff Luncheon:

As we head into the final stretch of the school year, it is once again time for the Fowler Teacher/Staff appreciation luncheon, which will be held on Friday, May 8th.  This is a great way to show support for the people who work with our children throughout the year, and is always appreciated by the Fowler Staff.  The PTO is looking for donations of salads (any kind), drinks, desserts, or monetary donations if that is more convenient.  Please email Lee McDonagh, who is organizing this event, at leemcdonagh@gmail.com with what you are able to contribute.  Thank you so much for helping with this very important event!

Dear Parents,

It's hard to believe we have entered April.  I hope the weather will continue to improve, the snow will melt, and students and families can begin to go outdoors. 

We had a great first week of PARCC testing.  The students did very well and worked incredibly hard.  Next week the testing will continue on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.


Report cards will be viewable in IPASS by Monday afternoon.  We will also mail report cards home next week.

The PTO would like to remind everyone that the absolute last day to get their orders in is Monday, April 6th.  Thanks to everyone who has already placed an order--every single one counts!  If everyone bought just ONE item, the school would make over $2000 in profit, which in turn would be used to help fund special requests from the teachers and enrichment programs.  Please consider placing an order.  Thank you!

Dear Parents,

Next week the first round of PARCC testing will begin for our students.  We have a small window to conduct the testing, so good attendance is very important.  Please help your child to prepare by making sure they arrive to school on time, receive a good night of sleep, and have a healthy breakfast.  Students will participate in a short physical activity before the test, can bring a snack to school, and can chew gum or a hard candy during the test.  Teachers will not assign homework or studying during the night before a test.  We want the students to be well rested and focused on doing their best.

Please reinforce the message given by teachers and encourage your child to work hard and do their best.  Your child's daily work and practice at school provides the best preparation for the PARCC.

Maynard Boy Scouts:
Five fifth graders from Fowler School earned their Arrow of Light awards last Friday night.  This award is the highest award given in Cub Scouting, and it reflects great achievement in scouting's core values of citizenship, community service, and outdoorsmanship.  The boys are Patrick Crossland, Nicholas Fritz, Jonathan Midey, Charles Stearns, and Nathan Strahs.  The boys were guided by den leader Kristen Reyzer over the last 5 years, and they are now members of Maynard Boy Scout Troop 130.

Sp
eaker Series Event:

Monday, April 13, 2015 — 6:30 to 8:30pm
R.J. Grey Junior High School Auditorium
16 Charter Road, Acton, MA

Increasingly, American parents start worrying about college admissions when their children are barely out of diapers.  And by middle school, kids have been thrust into the competition for the Ivy League.  But that's a dangerous game, one that teaches kids a curious set of values, sets too many of them up for disappointment and perverts the true purpose of education.  It's also built on a myth: that success hinges on going to a highly selective school.  Frank Bruni will talk about a better, healthier way to think about and approach all of this, distilling the research, life stories and advice in his new book Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania being published on March 17th.

New York Times Op-Ed columnist Frank Bruni will be speaking in Acton on “From Diapers to Diploma: A Healthier Way to Navigate Your Child's Path to College”.   The event is completely free.  Here’s the registration link: http://bit.ly/Bruni2015 .

This is a reminder that the next Science on Saturday K-12 presentation on the MIT campus will be Hands-On Engineering on March 28th.  This show will be presented by engineers from Draper Laboratory, and volunteers from the audience will be able to assist with lots of fun on-stage demonstrations.  After the stage show, there will be many different hands-on activity tables where kids can explore various aspects of engineering.

All of the Science on Saturday events are free and open to all elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as their parents and teachers.  Parking and seating are limited, so we recommend that you arrive early.  Attendees can park in either the West Garage (very close to the event) or Albany Garage (a ~10-15-minute walk from the event) provided they can pay the $6 flat fee with a credit card at either parking garage.  Alternatively, attendees can take MBTA buses to the MIT Massachusetts Avenue stop (very close to the event) or the subway to either the Central or Kendall Square T stops (a ~20-minute walk from the event).

Dear Parents,

At the end of the month, we will begin our first round of PARCC testing.  Massachusetts is in year-two of piloting PARCC as a possible replacement to MCAS, which we have used for 17 years.  In the fall, the Department of Education will vote to either adopt PARCC as our state assessment or make a decision to use another assessment. 

With any new assessment, there are often lots of questions, and inevitably, some anxiety and concern about the impact on our students emotional well-being.

At Fowler, teachers utilize the Common Core Curriculum Standards, which teach students to problem-solve, think critically, and write with creativity and conviction.  Students are exposed to project-based learning, which encourages collaboration, communication, and thinking.  Imbedded into instruction are learning strategies that students can use every day, and during assessments such as PARCC or MCAS.

We believe that helping the students to be well-prepared will reduce anxiety that they may be feeling.  Our message to the students has always been to do their best and to utilize all that they have learned in school.  It is also important to remember that this is only the second year of the PARCC pilot, which means our expectations should be realistic given the learning curve that will happen during the testing process.

The best thing we can do as a school community is to support and reassure our students, and to convey a sense of calm and confidence they will do well.

Please help your child to prepare by making sure they arrive to school on time, receive a good night of sleep, and have a healthy breakfast.  Students will participate in a short physical activity before the test, can bring a snack to school, and can chew gum or a hard candy during the test.  Teachers will not assign homework or studying during the night before a test.  We want the students to be well-rested and focused on doing their best.

Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.

Mr. Mela

Mrs. Andrade, our wonderful school secretary is moving into a position in Central Office and today is her last day.  As you know, Mrs. Andrade consistently helps teachers, students, and parents in a million different ways.  We are sad to say goodbye to Mrs. Andrade, but we take some comfort that she is still working in the same building, and undoubtedly, will still be available to support Fowler.  We wish Mrs. Andrade all the best in her new position and we will miss her smiling, patient, and supportive personality.

Congratulations to Ms. Lauren Lambert and all the students who did so well in the school play. 
This is the first time that Ms. Lambert ever directed a show and she did an incredible job.  The students performed beautifully and had lots of fun doing it:  Owen Thayer, Jenny Livolsi, Jamie Bouley, McKinley Gregg, Kendra McGrath, Taylor Capello, Joey DiTavi, Chloe Donovan, Roxy Pinson, Sydney Jacobson, Owen Sullivan-Dale, Carolyn Norris, Reese Lowery, Kayla Heideman, Piper Picorelli, Abby Zeigler, Zach St. John, Rory Copley, Tori Carroll, Jessica Skavicus, Vincent Boothroyd.

Kudos to all the students who played a role in the play.  Thank you to all the staff and parents who also contributed to make the play such a success.

Congratulations to Patrick O’Neil, 7th grade, who qualified for the Junior Districts for his outstanding performance on the French Horn.

The Maynard /Stow Baseball Charitable Corp. is now in the process of putting together the Spring Minuteman Babe Ruth Baseball League teams. This league is a recreational weekend baseball league. Teams are open to 13 -15 year-old players (league age as of April 30, 2015) from Maynard, Stow and Bolton. Towns competing in this league are Maynard/Stow, Sudbury, Weston, Wayland, Westford, Concord/Carlisle, Acton/Boxboro, Bolton, Ayer/Shirley, Groton, Chelmsford, and Littleton.

League play begins the weekend of April 18-19 and runs through the weekend of May 30 - 31. Playoff games will start on the week of June 1 and the championship games will be played on June 7. This is a local traveling baseball league with games played on Saturdays and Sundays with one game at home and the other at an opponent's field.   Most teams also have one weeknight practice a week.

Players can sign up for Babe Ruth and still play on Middle and High School teams.  There are seldom conflicts (usually only for HS teams and only if there is a lot of bad weather), and recreational team coaches recognize that school team commitments come first. 

If you have any questions - please call Mike Chambers at 978-430-6905 or Chris Bell at 617-710-7745 or e-mail at chambersm@oscie.com or cdkrbell@earthlink.net.

Dear Parents,

Next week, we welcome Mr. Chris Fleming as our new Assistant Principal.  Mr. Fleming is familiar with Fowler as he spent 14 years here as a 6th grade Math teacher.  Most recently, Mr. Fleming worked at the Chenery Middle School as an Assistant Principal.  Mr. Fleming brings positive energy, a deep understanding of children, and a strong commitment to helping Fowler to grow and improve.

We hope you can come support the Fowler School Play "The Actor Games."

In this Hunger Games parody, all auditions have been banned by the Capitol.  During the annual Actor Games, ten districts (Greek Tragedy, Silent Film, Melodramatic, and others) compete to become a star.  This year, Meryl hopes to become the first ever winner from the Land of Bad Acting.  Unfortunately, the odds are never in her favor.

Tonight, March 6th at 7pm or tomorrow, March 7th at 2pm.

Tickets available at the door of the Fowler Auditorium.

$5 adults and $3 students/seniors
