Principal's Message...

Two weeks ago I mused about what students might be telling their parents when they came home after the first week of school. On Friday evening, I watched The Diary of a Wimpy Kid with about 175 Deal students, parents, and alumni, resting on blankets in our cafeteria. The image that the movie presented about middle school and its occupants made me think back to my earlier message. At the end of the movie, I wanted to take the mic and clarify that Deal Middle School is nothing like the fictional school portrayed that evening. In retrospect, I think the laughter and general comfort level with the movie was a better indication that the Wimpy Kid is not one of ours. If the room had been dead quiet, it would have been a different story.
Party on the Plaza!

This is not to say that the various ills shown in the movie are not present in some form in every middle school. But writers go for the big laughs, the shocks. The incidents of bullying, of rampant misbehavior, of the absolutely invisible curriculum are going to be true for someone, sometime. But middle schools are just not like that anymore - at least not the many that I have seen. What was most obvious was the lack of adults in the school. There was the Principal, seen on TV; the caricature of a PE teacher shaming kids; and the disorganized and chaotic homeroom teacher, blithely letting students do whatever they wanted. This is a classic movie approach: the kids run the school, with hapless adults standing by as society's challenges are worked out by 13-year-olds. Like some of you, I can remember being bullied in middle school; like perhaps many of you, I can remember ineffectual teachers. I wonder how many of us are still affected by these incidents or individuals when we look at our children's school, how many of us wonder what it is really like?

This week, we have several events that are about perspective. Two of our 6th grade teams will be traveling to Hemlock Overlook to participate in our 6th grade team-building activity. The hope is that students will meet challenges that require collective thought to resolve, as well as individual strength to draw upon. One of the hardest things to do is to watch a group to ten students try to navigate a puzzle when you know the answer but can't share it with them.

In addition, leaders from our new Chinese sister school, Yu Cao, in Beijing are visiting Deal on Thursday. Through the diligent efforts of our Chinese teacher, Mr. Zhi, we have forged a relationship with this large middle school in China's capital city. Just as I am curious about their school (apparently significantly larger than Deal) I wonder what they will take away from our students and their teachers. I also wonder how much of what they think they know about American children will be turned on its head (or perhaps vaildated) by their visit. Should be interesting.

Principal's Coffee this Tuesday morning. I will be hosting the first of what I presume will be many Principal's Coffees this Tuesday morning at 9 am. There will be coffee and the principal. It will be a chance for parents to talk, ask questions and, I hope, hear a bit about Deal that you might not know. We haven't done this in my time at Deal, so I am not sure how many to expect. If you show up and there are too many people there, don't worry, I'll do it again soon.

Take care.

New: Back-to-School Night success! 

Thanks to the over 450 parents who came to Deal's 2012 Back-to-School Night last Tuesday. It was wonderful to see so many families interested in what happens in their child's school - and in the hallways. Our teachers did a fabulous job presenting who they are and what they do. We hope that parents keep coming back to Deal throughout the year, either for curriculum nights, parent-teacher conferences, or just to help on a project. Thanks to all who helped set up Back-to-School Night - it made a difference.

Thanks: 8th Grade Mock Trial

The 8th grade Humanities team would like to thank the administration, staff, and students for their participation in a successful mock trial, involving Christopher Columbus, Columbus' crew, the system of the empire, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand and the Taino.

Updated Information for 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 trip's 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 #1187626. 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!

  

2013 World Language Trip to France!

This year during Spring Break our 8th grade French students will be given the opportunity to go on a "French promenade" through France. This trip extends the immersion style teaching in French language classes and provides an opportunity for our learners to hone their linguistic proficiency and cultural competence.

 

The trip cost covers round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, all ground transportation, breakfast and dinner daily, a full-time local Tour Director, guided sightseeing tours of all the major sites, the chance to earn high school, and much more. The only things that are not included are lunches and beverages, tips for the guides, and spending money for free time activities and souvenirs.
