Principal Appreciation Dya.jpg

In May, we’re joining schools across the nation to thank our teachers, school nurses, and principals. We recognize that all of our staff give their best to help children achieve. Unlike other careers in which the same method can be applied time and time again, working in schools requires an individualized approach as each student learns differently and has a different set of circumstances.

Earlier this year we celebrated our support staff and now it’s time to #thankateacher, #thankaschoolnurse, and #thankaprincipal. You’ll find us using these hashtags on social media in the coming days, and we encourage you to join in and tell us about the difference someone has made in your child’s academic life. We’d love to hear the differences made in your life too.




 

Thank a School Principal Day is May 2

Thank a Teacher Day is May 3

Thank a School Nurse Day is May 11

Join us on Facebook, Twitter, and even Tumblr as we celebrate the hard work of our staff! They’re bringing new energies and resources into our schools every day. And be sure to check out thankateacher.org, a student run project that brings thank you notes back to your teachers.

Substitute Appreciation Week

date 06/15/2016 author ISD #318 category In Our Schools, Partnerships comment Leave a comment

SubAppreciation.jpg

This week is Substitute Appreciation Week, and we want to take a moment to recognize all the hard work substitutes do every day. Schools would not look the same without the dedication of our substitute staff. Substitutes can be called in at the last minute, but make sure that a child's day is seamless and our education goals are unaffected.

 

According to the Substitute Teaching Institute at Utah State University, research shows that because of teacher sick or personal days, one full year of a child’s K-12 education is taught by substitute teachers. That doesn't take into account the support of ESP substitutes and subs in our Food Service, Transportation, and Maintenance Departments. Substitutes save the day!

 

#ThankASubstitute today!

We're so thankful for our volunteers!

Volunteer Appreciation week is April 10 through 16, so we want to take a moment to share with you all the ways they make a difference in the lives of kids!

 

Educational excellence can only be achieved by using all of the resources in our community. We support the use of volunteers in the schools as a method by which teachers and students may receive additional assistance. We encourage parents, guardians, family members, and other members of the community to share their time, knowledge, and abilities with our students. Caring members of our community bring new energies and resources into our schools.

 

Our foster grandparents are one example of people bringing their time, energy, and knowledge into our schools. They showcase how volunteers can make a real difference in our schools. Check out the video below to learn more.

 

 

Skills and abilities of all kinds are needed in our schools, from literacy volunteers to artists to engineers. Just contact your child or grandchild's school or teacher to learn more. And a big THANK YOU to all of our caring volunteers!

Summer Fun with Community Education

date 06/15/2016 author ISD #318 category In Our Schools, Partnerships comment Leave a comment

Itasca Area Community Education has great summer programs to keep your kids playing and learning this summer!
 

 

Summer Learning Academy at ISD 318 is a four-week learning opportunity for kids entering 1st through 8th grades. This innovative program is led by licensed teachers and is designed to support children who learn in different ways or at a different pace. Kids attending SLA will build skills in reading, math, and writing, while also learning better organization and social skills all in a small group learning environment. Teachers use hands-on activities, technology, and project based teaching to make learning meaningful and fun.

 

Children must be referred to the program by their current teacher. Parents who think their child could benefit from Summer Learning Academy are encouraged to contact their child's teacher for more information. For questions or additional information about SLA and Camp Discovery contact the Community Education Office at 218-327-5730 or email Jessica Wilcowski.
