Principal's Message...

Last week, I wrote about concerns about bus safety and efforts to improve this from both the student and WMATA perspectives. This effort will continue because it must, because we want our students to have safe passage to and from school.

This week, I want to address three recent incidents on the Metrorail system. Over the last few weeks, several Deal students have been robbed riding the subway; in at least one case, a student was assaulted. An arrest has been made in one of these cases, and it seems likely that other arrests will follow, but any sense of closure is undercut by the long-lasting feeling of vulnerability that a student will feel after the event. In each case, parents alerted the transit police who followed up with serious investigations. While these individual stories are by no means over as justice takes time, I wanted to share this information with you.

Whether the train system has become generally less safe over time or whether these are somewhat isolated incidents isn't my place to try and figure out. Children need to both feel and be safe. I am meeting with Metro Transit this week to ask what is being done for student safety. I already spoke with Principal Cahall at Wilson, who is also concerned about this issue. There are already some approaches in place. Metro Transit police have been walking the trains during the ride home. Of course, they aren't on every train, but they are available at the stations. 

Let me pass on some reminders of practical preventive steps students can take. One important suggestion is for students to ride in the front car of the train whenever possible - closest to the train operator. As students move through the system, traveling in groups is better than alone, and moving with purpose towards exits is advisable. It is also very important to be aware of the environment at all times. If you recall, last year the city was plagued with a series of iPhone snatchings - students plugged into their headphones and walking with them in their hands make a very vulnerable target. Walking with the phone tucked away, being aware of crowds and challenging situations makes a student less vulnerable. As I get more information, I will pass it on to you.

I'll do my best to keep you up-to-date with other safety issues and concerns as we go forward - and please feel free to contact me for any reason.

In yet another safety note, this last Friday all of our students participated in a school-wide program on cyberbullying - reviewing what it is, discussing how to prevent it and to report it, and in general let students know it isn't tolerated. As part of the activity, students learned about what has been happening to Alex, the main subject of the movie "Bully," viewed in December. Ask them how he is doing. Special thanks to staff leading our anti-bullying efforts - it is making a difference.

Principal Albright

 

Final note: On February 23, Deal will be the site of this year's PTA Auction, the primary fundraising and just generally fun event of the school calendar. Please pencil the date in to your calendars. We'll be discussing this in more depth in the weeks to come, but your support for the auction is what lets us have a 6th grade Hemlock trip, field trips, almost 20 scholarships for world language trips, new laptop and iPad carts across the building, musical and artistic visitors, the musical and the play, and so much more. Without the PTA's resources, life at Deal would be different. I thank them - and you in advance for participating. See you there!

Individual Graduation Portfolio (IGP)

The IGP provides students with a road map to the future and a record of the past. Staying on course empowers students to reach the destination-graduation- with all the courses, skills, and experiences needed to make informed decisions about education and career. Grade level milestones and guideways lead students through the program. Learning opportunities available through the IGP include Career/College Major Exploration, High School Course Planning, Goal Setting/Journaling, Interest/Skill Inventories.

New: 3rd/4th Advisory Art & Music Students

The new advisory starts this week!  All students who were in P.E. will switch to art or music, and will need to bring a notebook (please see specifications below) to class by the second week of the advisory.  This notebook will stay in the classroom, so it should not be used for other courses.

New: Teens for Jeans

A huge thank-you to the Deal community for an incredible start to our jeans drive!  We collected nearly 900 pairs of jeans in three days!  That is a lot of homeless teens' lives changed because of your cleaning out closets!  A special shout-out to 6th grade's Team Sydney who alone donated over 25% of the jeans collected.  Homerooms that have donated the most are Ms. Compazano, Mr. McDowell, and Mrs. Mostoller. It's not too late to donate--we will be collecting all the way up until February 8.  Two suggestions that may work: (1) Ask around at work to see if any of your colleagues have some extra pairs laying around, and (2) Charge an entry fee to your Super Bowl party of a couple of pairs. Remember all shapes and sizes count, so long as they're jeans.

Pasamos la Voz D.C.

(Español and English)

 

La clase de Humanidades en Español en octavo grado de Alice Deal Middle School está trabajando en un proyecto informativo de caracter social que consiste en  informar al publico sobre el fenómeno de la inmigración en Washington D.C. Después de leer y analizar Cajas de Cartón por Francisco Jimenez, y una sección de Senderos Fronterizos por el mismo autor, los estudiantes  continúan  aprendiendo sobre los orígenes y el impacto de la  immigracion en los Estados Unidos y específicamente en Washington D.C. Para la ejecución de este proyecto de aprendizaje y divulgacion, La clase ha creado un proyecto llamado "Pasamos La Voz". dividiendose en tres grupos, desde donde los estudiantes estan trabajando con el objetivo de   pasar la voz sobre el fenómeno de inmigración en los Estados Unidos, las causas y consecuencias de este fenómeno y la responsabilidad de nosotros, los estudiantes de Alice Deal Middle School para cambiar esta realidad que tiene un gran impacto en  la sociedad en general.

 

Para nuestro proyecto estamos trabajando con organizaciones sin animo de lucro que trabajan con los inmigrantes,miembros de la comunidad e inmigrantes. Cada grupo esta asignado a un medio de divulgación diferente: un grupo esta haciendo una pagina red que incluye información sobre la inmigración local , opiniones de los estudiantes, entrevistas, galería de fotos, trabajos de escritura y otras expresiones artísticas como dibujos, canciones y poemas, un blog que describe el día a día del proyecto entre otros. Otro grupo esta haciendo un periodico llamado El Tabloide que contiene información sobre nuestro proyecto y como lo hemos creado así como información relevante sobre los inmigrantes en Washington DC, las razones por la cuales  este proyecto es importante, y como podemos ayudar con los problemas relacionados con la inmigración. Cada dia los estudiantes tienen sus propias metas de lo que van a cumplir ese día y autoevaluan su rendimiento para que puedan trabajar efectivamente. Los estudiantes estan aprendiendo a comunicarse con otras personas utilizando la tecnología del siglo XXI educando a la comunidad sobre todo que han aprendido durante el proceso de investigacion. Finalmente otro grupo de estudiantes es responsable de hacer un documental de diez minutos donde presentaran información, estadísticas, y opiniones de residentes en Washington D.C. Este proyecto es una herramienta excelente para motivarnos y ofrecernos un canal para poder usar todo lo que hemos aprendido en nuestra clase de Humanidades usando el pensamiento critico y la capacidad de análisis que nos ofrece el programa de bachillerato internacional al tiempo que estamos ayudando a los inmigrantes en los Estados Unidos. En palabras de nuestro director "este proyecto nos ofrece la oportunidad de romper barreras."

 

The eighth grade Spanish Humanities class at Alice Deal Middle School is currently focusing on informing others of immigrants in Washington D.C. After reading and analyzing Cajas de Cartón by Francisco Jiménez, the students continue to learn more about immigration issues in the United States, specifically in Washington DC.The class has created a project named "Pasamos La Voz" (Spread The Word). Split into three groups, the students work together to successfully spread the word on the phenomenon of immigration in the United States, the causes and consequences of this phenomenon as well as our responsibility as students of Alice Deal to change this reality that affects society in general. For our project we will work with non-government organizations, and immigrants in Washington. Each group has been given an assignment: one group is creating an online website that includes information about local immigration and a blog that describes the process of creating the project. Another group is making a newspaper named the The Tabloid that contains information about our project in general such as who created it, why the project is important, and how we can help with immigration related issues. Every day the students set goals for themselves, so that they can efficiently work and stay on task. The students are learning how to communicate with others and educate them of everything they have learned during their research process. Finally another group of students will be responsible for constructing a ten minute documentary about the opinions of local people in Washington. This project will raise awareness and help immigrants in the United States.

 

 


Staff information ...
 
New: Bell III schedule for Thursday 
The huge snowstorm on Thursday pushed our schedule around a bit. Since the cold and snow prohibited outside activities, we postponed the traditional Thursday Viking Time back two weeks. This week on Thursday we will have the Saakumu Dance Troupe performing in the gymnasium. Teams that are already planning a Bell III activity (such Sydney with the Embassy of Singapore) will continue with their plans; the remainder of the school will be watching the dance performance.

New:  Friday PD 

The PD session for next Friday, February 1st, are Preparing for National Board Certification in room W304, and Working with Defiant Students in room C222.
 

New: Wired/Wireless Internet

To improve performance of our wireless Internet, we need to make sure that all of the desktop computers are plugged into the "wired" Internet - that is, plugged into the wall. School and OCTO staff will be visiting classrooms to help with this. Teachers may need to do some classroom rearranging to ensure that computers are near the Internet outlets. 

 

Recycling Printer Cartridges and Batteries

Wondering what to do with your used printer cartridges and batteries? The Recycling Green Team will make sure they are recycled or disposed of in an environmentally responsible way. Please send all types of printer cartridges and batteries to Mr Winn-Ritzenberg or place them in his mailbox. Thank you for recycling.
