PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Dear Parents;

Improving Teaching and Learning is a major focus for our school community. We invite you to join with us to help prepare our students for success this year.

The Smarter Balanced approach to assessment will be administered this year starting with our 3rd graders. All parents and students can benefit from reviewing basic information about the assessments so that we can start students early getting prepared to do well on these important tests. The Smarter Balanced tests include a number of differences from most  other state assessments today.

· These assessments will be administered online and will go beyond multiple choice questions to include performance tasks that allow students to demonstrate research, writing, and analytical skills.

· In addition to a year-end test, teachers will be able to administer interim assessments throughout the school year to monitor student progress and make adjustments to instruction.

Oregon Schools

Oregon is one of the nation’s healthiest states when it comes to childhood obesity. Currently 26.4 percent of children ages 10-17 in Oregon are considered overweight or obese. While this is better than all but a handful of states, it is still too high for the children of Oregon. To address the issue, more than 340 schools have joined the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program and are taking advantage of tools and resources available at no cost to help schools create a wellness council, start staff wellness programs, offer healthier foods and more physical activities.

The Healthy Schools Program recognizes that all schools are unique and there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to school health. As part of the Healthy Schools Program, every school creates an action plan that will work for their community. Many schools in Oregon have decided to work on employee wellness and 75 percent of participating schools have made improvements in this area. These gains, noted Oregon Relationship Program Manager Maricela Urzua, were achieved in part through a focus on staff employee wellness by Governor Kitzhaber.

In recognition of their efforts, 58 National Healthy Schools Awards have been presented to Oregon schools. This year St. Paul Elementary is the only Oregon school that received the National Healthy School Bronze Award. Each recognized school has distinguished itself with healthy eating and physical activity programs and policies that meet or exceed stringent standards set by the Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program. A representatives from the award-winning school will attend the annual Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C.

2014 National Healthy Schools Award Recipients

Every year we hold our annual Alliance for a Healthier Generation Leaders Summit to celebrate schools around the nation that have met our Healthy Schools Program benchmarks for creating healthy changes.

These are those award winning schools in your state that we are so proud to honor.
