Principal's Message...

We are just about to conclude one of the longest blocks of instructional weeks without a significant interruption - the time before Spring Break. This last week before school is out challenges everyone to keep their attention focused. As the 3rd grading advisory comes to a close on Friday, we are attuned to the reality that two weeks after the break the DC CAS testing season starts. Now is a great time to ask your child what she or he needs to be working on.

Many of our larger scale projects are winding down - this week National History Day took over the campus, with students in costume or in their best outfits working to impress judges with their research. Over at Wilson, the DC STEM Fair gave a forum for students to present before an entirely different set of judges. Both of these critical projects give students long-term goals to develop and strict criteria to meet. Initial results (see below for STEM) reflect well on our students.

Amid the academic hullabaloo came a fun respite - Singapore Day. Students on Team Sydney entertained the staff from the Singaporean Embassy, and the whole 6th grade met the Ambassador, Ashok Kumar Mirpuri, and his wife during lunch. The Embassy provided treats for all 430 6th graders, and then everyone dug into their noodles for a Singaporean meal. The public event concluded with a fashion show; the Ambassador stayed and met Team Sydney students after lunch.

Continuing an international theme last week was the presentation of Pasamos la Voz, a project of the 8th grade Spanish Humanities class, led by Ms. Cadavid. Now in its second year, the project focused on immigration to the United States and DC in particular. Students developed a website, a documentary, and a "tabloid" on the issue. All three powerful pieces were presented to parents and staff and were very well-received. Like the Science Fair and National History Day, Pasamos la Voz shows us that given the right motivation, skills, and commitment, our children can produce amazing work. I am attaching the link to the newspaper here, the remainder will be posted on the Deal website this week.

As the heavy rush through the 3rd advisory concludes this week, I thank the Deal families for working with their children and our teachers to keep everyone moving in the same direction.

Principal Albright

NB. The next weekly bulletin will be emailed on Sunday, April 7th (two weeks from today). Enjoy the break!
March Math Madness

During the month of March we have been highlighting mathematics at Deal. This is the final week of March Math Madness.  Congratulations to 6th grader Reese Hinkle for winning the Problem of the Week drawing!

 

This week's Standards for Mathematical Practice:

 

5.  Use appropriate tools strategically.  Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem. These tools might include pencil and paper, concrete models, a ruler, a protractor, a calculator, a spreadsheet, a computer algebra system, a statistical package, or dynamic geometry software.

 

6.  Attend to precision.  Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others. They try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning.

Message from the Nurse - Immunization Compliance

We are asking for your assistance in ensuring your child is up to date with their immunizations.  

Each time a student receives a vaccination - please obtain a signed and stamped form indicating the vaccine was administered and send to the School Nurse. The Immunization Registry only accepts stamped and signed documentation.

 

For all 6th grade students- once you turn 11 years old- the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccine is required. This consists of 3 doses  or you may opt out for this vaccine. Opt out forms are available online or through the School Nurse.  A one time opt-out form must be completed and sent to the Nurse if you want to delay or refuse the vaccine. See HPV Information Sheet.

Evaluation for the IB Middle Years Program

In the fall of school year 2013-2014 representatives from the International Baccalaureate (IB) organization will visit Deal to evaluate our implementation of the Middle Years Program. Over the last several months, we have been preparing for this evaluation. The evaluation process requires the school to conduct a self-study of the program implementation. The school staff has already completed the self-study survey. After spring break, parents/guardians will be asked to participate in this survey. The evaluation process also requires student work samples from each of the subject areas to be submitted for monitoring. The administrative team would like to thank teachers for their hard work in having students complete IB assessments that were submitted last week. The final phase of preparation for the evaluation will be submission of the self-survey analysis and supporting documents by June 1, 2013.

 

Once again thank you to the wonderful Deal teachers for their hard work.
