Here are some pictures of students in Mrs. Diamond’s class doing some activities related to Trout in the Classroom. About every week, they do trout observations which include recording the developmental percentage (which they calculate daily - it's directly related to the water temperature) and stage of development, drawing a diagram, estimating a measurement, and writing a few written observations and/or predictions. The students have also begun to check the ammonia levels and change the water every 3 days or so.

Comic Book Contest:

I wanted to thank all the students who participated in our First Annual Comic Book Contest.  This contest was inspired by Riley Kondroski and Jacob Auger when they created their first comic book and gave it to me to read.  I gave it back with some suggestions and they went to work on making it better.  This gave me the idea about having this contest.  We ended up having 97 students participate and I’m extremely proud of all of them for doing their best and submitting a comic.

Here are winners:

K and 1st Grade – Vivanahna Boisvert

Best Overall Comic – Zach Hall and Caleb Fitzpatrick  “Life of a Soda Can”   

I would like to Thank JET PACK COMICS for supporting this event.  Jon Waugh represented JET PACK and gave our comics to all the people who entered a comic in the contest.  He also generously gave gift certificates to the winners.

The PTA put on a fabulous Spookacular event on Nov. 20.  A lot of people attended and it was a lot of fun.  Thanks PTA for putting this event on.

 
The PTA also used money they raised last year to purchase soccer goals for the playground.  The kids have been using them and they have been a great hit.  It's awesome to see the kids run and play during recess.  Thanks PTA for purchasing the goals.



Updated 10-20-17
The PTA Spookacular is tonight starting at 6:30.  We are collecting non-perishable food items for our food pantry if you would like to bring something tonight to donate.  

Next Week is the Chamberlain Spirit Week!  The days are:
Monday -- Chamberlain Pride Day
Tuesday -- Hat Day   
Wednesday -- Sports Day
Thursday -- Crazy Hair Day
Friday -- Orange and Black Day



***NOTE*** --  There will not be a Costume Parade this year.  We are doing the Spirit Week in lieu of the parade.

CHALLENGE 5
The district is focusing on attendance this year and we are promoting it with the Challenge 5 goal.  The idea is for students to not be out of school for more than 5 days this school year.  We are promoting this concept with the students and also having some incentives along the way to reinforce attendance and the importance of being in school.  Next week is our first school challenge.  We have a contest next week to see which grade can have the best attendance for the week.  The winning grade will receive a prize on Friday.

What a wonderful start to the school year.  It was awesome to see so many families come to the Open House last night.  It's just another example of the incredible families we have here at Chamberlain Street School.  Thank you all who were able to attend.

Just a reminder that the first PTA meeting will be next Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 6:00 pm in the library.

The Chamberlain Food Pantry is a big part of our school to community partnership and we are always looking for assistance.  If you have the ability to donate to the pantry, we would greatly appreciate it!  The following is from our wonderful Family Support Coordinator, Kelley Simpson.

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful summer break! I want to thank all of you for the amazing support you gave last year for our families in need. I am in awe of how generous people are at Chamberlain! Together, we helped families at Thanksgiving, Christmas and, February opened the Chamberlain Market, our food pantry that is open all during the school year. Just in the last four months of the school year last year we had roughly 20 visits to the pantry and helped 13 different families. I know this year will be even more.

So. with that said, my goal is to have the pantry open for business right at the start of the school year and to do that I NEED YOUR HELP. We will be having a staff back to school food drive Monday and Tuesday of next week. We will follow that with a drive for families the week of open house.

I am attaching the list of items we are hoping to stock, Pease remember, we are grateful for any donation. So if you have something not on the list, please feel free to send it in.

*** We have PLENTY of TUNA

*** We are just about out of SPAGHETTI SAUCE, PARMESAN CHEESE, ,CANNED CHICKEN, GRAVY, INSTANT MASHED POTATOES, PANCAKE MIX, SYRUP AND SNACKS.

Thanks so much,

Kelley Simpson

Family Support Coordinator

The ATTENDANCE Policy:


Dear Parents and Guardians:

The 2017-2018 school year is about to begin and the teachers in Rochester have exciting plans and high expectations for your child’s learning.  I know that you also have many hopes and dreams for your child’s success in school and beyond.

To make sure those hopes and dreams are realized, I want to ask for your commitment to making sure your child attends school every day possible this year. The evidence is clear: children with good attendance are more likely to be successful in school and beyond.  High attendance rates are linked to high student achievement. This is true for every grade – elementary, middle, and high school students.  This year, the Rochester School District is implementing the Challenge 5 program.  We challenge all student to strive for five or fewer absences.  Throughout the year, we will have different incentives and prizes for those meeting or exceeding this goal.  

A recent review of student attendance data by the Department of Public Instruction shows that regular school attendance from Kindergarten on is essential to successful learning: every day counts!  Missing school even 10% of the time has a significant negative impact on reading and math achievement as children progress through school.

Students with good attendance performed better in math and reading. Children who had good attendance in Kindergarten through Grade 2 were more than twice as likely to score proficient on state math tests by the time they reached Grade 8 as their peers who missed more school. In reading, there were similar results.  

Good attendance starts early. Research has shown that the attendance habits established Kindergarten through Grade 2 have lasting effects on students throughout their education: children with high attendance in the early grades continue to have good attendance; and students with low attendance in the early grades are more likely to have low attendance—and lower academic performance—throughout their elementary and middle school years. 

As your child’s most influential teacher, I am asking for your support in helping your child get to school on time every day this year.  Your child needs to be in school and engaged in learning to reach his or her full potential. Yet, we realize that every family faces challenges. Please let me, your child’s teacher, or principal know if your family needs help dealing with a challenge to your child’s good school attendance. My contact information is above. We will do our best to help you and your family ensure that your child’s school attendance stays on track.  

Thank you for all you do to support your child’s school success and well-being, as well as our school.  I look forward to working with you this year and to having your child learn and grow in the Rochester School Department!

Best wishes for a safe, respectful, responsible, and successful school year.

Respectfully, 


Kyle Repucci
