  • Parent Update-April 6, 2020. Actualización para padres: 6 de abril de 2020

    Remote Learning Started Monday, April 6, 2020

    School started up this morning at 9:00 a.m. As you know, school will look different due to Covid 19 and the state-wide quarantine.  We have moved to a remote learning model.  Teachers are posting assignments in their google classroom as well as hosting some live virtual learning sessions. Be sure to check in every Monday  to your child’s google classroom to see if there are changes to the schedule sent home on Friday, 4/3. I have posted it again here as well.  Starting today your child will log in every day to see what the teacher has posted. Walnut Square staff will continue to read stories every day at noon. If you have questions please reach out to your child’s teacher via email which are posted in the link below. I am also available via email.

  • Parent Update- March 26, 2020- Please Complete This Survey

    Dear Parents of Haverhill students,

    During this time of uncertainty, we are looking to make sure we can continue to provide educational opportunities for all of our students to learn.  We are researching many options to provide educational programming to our families and that may look different for each classroom or school.

    Some of these options may include distance based learning through computers.  As such, we are attaching a technology survey for you to complete. This is an urgent request that we ask all families to complete before Sunday, March 29th at 12 pm so we can identify if students and teachers have the ability to be in contact through Google Classroom, videos, and other curriculum programs.

    We realize that this digital form may not reach all of our affected families, so we are reaching out to individual families that have not had direct contact with teachers during this closure.

    Due to the limited mobile devices resources available, please fill out this form as completely and honestly as possible so we can properly identify those individuals who truly need assistance.

    Please follow this link to the survey:   https://bit.ly/HPS-Device-Survey

    Thank you,

    HPS

    Estimados padres de estudiantes de Haverhill:

    Durante este tiempo de incertidumbre, buscamos asegurarnos de que podamos continuar brindando oportunidades educativas para que todos nuestros estudiantes aprendan. Estamos investigando muchas opciones para proporcionar programación educativa a nuestras familias y eso puede verse diferente para cada aula o escuela.

    Algunas de estas opciones pueden incluir el aprendizaje a distancia a través de las computadoras. Como tal, adjuntamos una encuesta de tecnología para que la complete. Esta es una solicitud urgente que les pedimos a todas las familias que completen antes del domingo 29 de marzo a las 12 p. M. Para que podamos identificar si los estudiantes y los maestros tienen la capacidad de ponerse en contacto a través de Google Classroom, videos y otros programas curriculares.

    Somos conscientes de que este formulario digital puede no llegar a todas nuestras familias afectadas, por lo que estamos llegando a familias individuales que no han tenido contacto directo con los maestros durante este cierre.

    Debido a los recursos limitados de dispositivos móviles disponibles, complete este formulario de la manera más completa y honesta posible para que podamos identificar adecuadamente a las personas que realmente necesitan ayuda.

    Siga este enlace a la encuesta:    https://bit.ly/HPS-Device-Survey

     Gracias,

    HPS

    Grade 2
    Mrs. O’Leary’s class enjoyed celebrating Dr. Seuss Week.  Each child made their own Dr. Seuss hat using a glyph ( symbolic way to show data) and created an art project based on the book Oh The Places You Will Go.  In writing the students explored different kind of penguins and will  design an informational poster  to share with the class.  During math we continue to work on place value into the 1,000’s and the children are doing great!
      Ms. Sanchez’s class  wrote informational paragraphs about Dr. Seuss using a T-Chart graphic organizer. During ELA, students selected a script and their part. There were three different plays about Important Americans ( Rosa Parks, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln).

    HPS students in grades K-5 use the Envision Math Program. I wanted to share that it has an online resource for students to use at home to practice the skills they learn in school. All students have a log- in and password which allows them to utilize this resource at home.  If you have internet access and would like your child to start to use this wonderful resource at home, please communicate with your child’s teacher and they will provide you with your  student’s log- in and password.

    News from K Classes

    The Kindergarten students at Walnut Square are very proud to be 100 days smarter! To celebrate the 100th day of school, they dressed up as if they were 100 years old and participated in many fun activities throughout the day. Students wrote about being 100 years old, practiced counting to 100 by 1’s and 10’s and even followed a recipe to make a special snack out of 100 pieces of food.

    Celebrating Student Attendance

    On Tuesday, February 10th, the District Supervisor of Attendance Ms. Lorna Marchant  accompanied me on a visit to all of our classrooms to recognize our students that had perfect attendance in January, 2020. Children clapped and cheered for each other and students got to pick a prize from the Super star bucket.

    Monday, February 10, 2020 is the 100th day of school.  All classrooms will be celebrating, counting and finding patterns within 100.

    Next  Friday, February 14th is Valentines Day.  On that day we will be having a Title I event called For the Love of Reading.  Guest readers will read in each classroom and every child will get a furry friend to bring home and read to!

    Ms. Sanchez Grade 2 Class

    Ms. Sanchez tried a new strategy in her class this week called Talking Tiles. Students listened to a couple of books about Ruby Bridges and then had to complete the t-chart with facts about her. For the Talking Tile activity students had to choose 4 character traits to describe Ruby and give reason why.The students had a list of words to pick from. Students attempted to record their voices but since they tend to speak softly it was hard to hear. This is a strategy to increase student discourse in class as well as ensuring all students in the group participate. Kudos to Ms. Sanchez for trying different strategies to increase student engagement.

     Slippery Steps

    Early this morning I was made aware that the steps on the Main Street side of the school were very slippery this morning. Please know that our custodian had been out there several times this morning sprinkling the ice melt however the rain kept washing it away. Please continue to alert us to anything that needs attention. It is very much appreciated and we will do our best to correct the situation.

    News from the Walnut Square PTO

    The PTO is looking into getting some type of program to come to Walnut in March.  They will look into the Historical Society Presentations, Joppa Flatts, or a music man like Wayne from Maine, an author/illustrator and possibly book one or two programs for this year.

    The PTO is reaching out to people to see who are willing to help with a pasta dinner in April.   If enough volunteers can help, we will have a pasta dinner.  If not, the PTO is looking at hosting a Sweetheart dance like last year.

    A sales rep from a fundraising company came to the PTO and promoted his products.  His company sells cookie dough, pies, rolled cakes, danish, etc. He brought samples that were delicious (Leftovers in the fridge–help yourselves).   The PTO decided not to go with that fundraiser only because the product needs to be picked up the day that it is delivered or put in a refrigerator.  That would be a problem as the school does not have a lot of refrigeration space.  The PTO will be hosting a fundraiser in April through Popcornopolis.

    The PTO has planned a Panera Bread night to raise money for Walnut Square. school.  It is scheduled for Wednesday, April 8th (Parent Teacher Night).  They are going to do a Five Guys Night, as well but the date has not been confirmed.

    If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at bkitsos@haverhill-ps.org
