Principal's Message...

As parents, we know that the first week of school is one of the few times that our children are just spilling over with information about their classes, their teachers, their peers, and their everyday lives. It is too much to contain inside. I hope that your dinner and evening conversations gave you some insight into what the year holds for the Vikings at Deal. For your 6th grader, every single thing is new and full of meaning; for your 7th and 8th graders there is the need to compare this year with last - how the food in the lunchroom holds up, who moved and who stayed, which friends from last year are on their team, and so much more. We get it as well. This week, we try to get a handle on how the students are feeling about their school and what they need and adjust accordingly.

The coming weeks are very full in the Deal world. This last week, our teachers mixed in content instruction with cementing in place schoolwide procedures. There is some new language around school culture in the building, implemented with the goal of providing increased consistency in academic and behavioral expectations. The students seem to be responding well - Deal students are so focused on learning and growing that they make institutional changes easy for us. We are getting deep into the academic work this coming week, of course, and you should see the results in your child's agenda. Look at this closely - we are requiring everyone to put their homework assignments in their agendas so families have an up-to-the-minute listing of what their children are working on. Let us know how this is going.

You will notice in this bulletin a listing of clubs, activities, and sports that are planned for the first semester. Some of these will be starting this week (look at Student and Parent Information) but all will be starting by next week. Sports tryouts will have additional notifications - and more than one chance to find out about the team. My goal is to have a full week of activities (barring Friday) for as many of our children as possible. The IB talks about developing balance in each of us - it will be clear to you that not all activities your child wants to participate in can be accommodated. There just aren't enough days in the week. Having a conversation around how to make choices will be important.

For parents, a number of valuable events are on tap. This week, 6th grade Parent Workshops (see more) (Wednesday and Thursday) are on tap at 6:30. Wednesday's workshop is preceded by the first general PTA meeting of the year - 6:00 pm in the cafeteria. Next week, Back-to-School Night (September 11) and PTA dues week coincide. In two weeks' time I should have met almost all of you face to face. (And if I haven't by then, I will be hosting Principal Coffees each month to meet everyone else!)

Let me close by wishing you a wonderful Labor Day. Although Isaac is conspiring to keep us indoors, I am sure many of you are visiting or using this extra day to rest and relax. This day is the traditional start to Fall, national campaigns, and the wearing of dark clothes. For Deal teachers, it is a chance to catch their collective breaths. They have been working extremely hard to be ready for your children, and have a lot of hard work yet to come. They are the reason that this first week has gotten off to such a great start - and why the year will be wonderful for your children. I hope they are resting, too!

New: 2013 Spanish World Language Trip to Costa Rica!

This year during Spring Break our 8th grade Spanish students will be given the opportunity to travel with the school to Costa Rica. The trips purpose is twofold: we intend to increase our student's global awareness while providing them with an immersion setting in order to improve their language learning. Global awareness and second language acquisition are now more essential than ever for our children, and the best way to accomplish both is by traveling abroad. Experiencing new cultures not only opens students' eyes to the world, it also prepares them for the future.

 

The tour is operated by EF Educational Tours. You can learn more online and register for the tour by going to eftours.com and entering the tour #1187262. There are a limited number of spots available and the tour is sure to fill up quickly, so please register or contact Ms. Henderson ([email protected]) if you are interested. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we truly love being a part of!

The process focuses on social networking etiquette, academic skills, and personal development to create a foundation for persistence towards excellence. (Open to all 7th and 8th graders).

 

 

Attendance at Deal 

Students' ability to learn is enhanced by attending class regularly and on time. According to a study of attendance and its impact on academic performance, "Students should miss no more than 9 days of school each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduation."

 

Two years ago we implemented an attendance protocol that raised our overall attendance. Last year, our average daily attendance was over 95 percent. Our annual attendance goal for this school year is 97 percent. Our goal for on-time arrival to school is also 97 percent. We hope our attendance and tardy protocol will increase the amount of time students have with teachers to receive valuable instruction.

 

We believe that on-time arrival and regular attendance are critical to student success. Various incentives will be provided to students for improved or stellar attendance. Please reiterate our shared expectation with your child today! Let us strive to learn the "Viking Way": at school, on time, everyday! We will implement the attendance protocol for all students on Tuesday, September 4, 2012.
