Principal's Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Today's snow has some feeling a different sort of March Madness. I suspect many have turned their thoughts to spring and all that comes with it. For us, that includes concerts, a curriculum night, transition activities, and taking classes outside for physical education and natural place-based learning. Things get busy and the dates to keep track of are numerous. Please keep an eye on the calendar and upcoming dates. If we can assist with any schedule related questions don't hesitate to give us a call or send an email. 

You may recall I shared a draft end of year schedule of events with you a few weeks ago. Since then we have had an additional snow day. The Dresden Board and SAU will reconsider the projected last school day for the 16-17 year at their meeting next week. It may be that it moves from Wednesday to Thursday. I'll let you know as soon as I get the information. Our plan would be to hold our 8th grade last week activity schedule as was previously shared understanding that many of you have already made plans accordingly. More to come on this.

Finally, I had the pleasure of joining the 8th grade Spanish cafe this week with Sras. Madory and Peters. For those who have not heard about the project the class is transformed into a restaurant complete with tables, menus, waitstaff, and a whole host of delicious food and treats. As a customer I joined two students for a meal and conversation. Our waitress reviewed the menu, gave her recommendations, and took our order in Spanish. When we had questions she returned to the "kitchen" and sought answers. During the meal my table enjoyed casual conversation using prompts and suggestions provided by the teachers. For me, the conversation was easy and relaxed. Our attempts at Spanish were celebrated and accepted at whatever accuracy we maintained (mine is pretty rusty!). The whole atmosphere felt authentic, safe, and fun. I'd like to thank my table-mates for their encouragement and patience with me!

Have a terrific weekend and Happy Spring!

Sincerely,
Michael Lepene, Principal

RMS Notes and Information

-Parent Survey: Please consider taking our 2016-2017 parent/guardian survey. The information sent out earlier this week is pasted below for your convenience.

Annual Parent/Guardian Survey

The Dresden School Board, in conjunction with the staff at the Richmond Middle School, asks for annual feedback from parents and guardians so that we can celebrate our successes and identify opportunities for improvement. Staff will review the results of this survey over the remainder of this school year. We will use the results to help guide our ongoing work and discussions and also to aid in setting our building goals for the 17-18 school year.

The survey questions and format were created using a combination of previous survey questions, staff and parent topics, resources from Harvard School of Education, and in consultation with a community member with expertise in survey development and evaluation. Some questions and topics repeat year to year while others are more specific to a goal or shorter-term effort. We realize some questions are easier to answer and others feel a little more open or difficult to respond to. We appreciate your efforts and time as you work through the survey and we will consider each response.

The survey can be found via the web at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RMSParents2017 or you may request a paper copy from the RMS office. The survey will remain open until Monday, April 3, 2017.

-RMS Math Team news: Fifth place finish at MATHCOUNTS NH State competition with Rose Luttmer tied for third place on points, but nudged out of the top four on a single tie-breaker question. Rose did finish fourth in the head-to-head round (like a two-person lightning round, enough to make most of us wither.) Congrats to team members Eric Chen, James Chen, Rose Luttmer and Sophie Usherwood.

The sixth grade team of Lauren Hall, Sarah Hall, Tom Mosdal, and Sora Shirai took first place in the MathLeague qualifying competition last Sunday. Sarah placed second individual and Sora took the ring for first place! -Coach Kitzmiller

Principal's Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This week we have hosted twelve HHS March Intensive students. They have assisted with tutoring, co-taught classes, organized school and classroom activities, and learned a bit more about teaching as a profession. Beyond the classroom, MI students organized a floor hockey tournament, assisted with Pi Day activities, and contributed to a positive climate and community in countless ways during their short time here. We are grateful that they choose to spend their week at RMS and thank all of our MI interns for their service.

Curious to know what 450 pieces of pie looks like? We found out on Thursday as students and staff enjoyed a piece of pie in celebration of Pi Day (Photo Lepene). Congratulations also to Sora S. for memorizing 116 digits of Pi!

-Technology in the Classroom with Marty Warren: Schoology Training for RMS Staff

On Monday, March 13th Richmond Middle School Teachers spent part of their professional development day working with Schoology Trainer Sarah Viner.  This year is the second year both RMS and Hanover High School have been using Schoology as our course management system.  

Now that we’ve been using Schoology for a while, teachers were wanting to bring in a professional trainer to help us use some of the more advanced features of Schoology.  With some grant funded assistance from Amy Tarallo, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, we were able to have a Schoology Trainer onsite at RMS for a day!

Schoology has many features beyond simply posting and collecting assignments and one we’ve been interested in is the Portfolio Feature.  Ms. Viner showed us different ways students can create portfolios from any of their subjects and how the portfolios stay with them and their Schoology accounts all the way through high school.  The  presentation also focused on creating assignment rubrics in Schoology and how mastery of core competencies can be incorporated into a rubric.  We feel very fortunate to have had a day with Ms. Viner and will continue to look for ways to effectively use Schoology.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This week we feature a write-up from Lynn Callaway (Learning Specialist) and Amanda Yates (Associate Principal). Amanda and Lynn provide some highlights from recent and on-going work by our staff aimed at developing and supporting a positive and healthy community at RMS. I hope you enjoy the look-in!

Sincerely,

@mlepene

At this week’s staff meeting, the RMS School Community Committee provided an update on the work they have done to date this year and shared information about Restorative Practices. This committee organized after several staff members attended a three day workshop on Restorative Practices last August.

The Committee identified the following goals for this year:

  • Identify and lead opportunities for building a strong, positive school community

  • Review, assess and provide recommendations on current behavior system

  • For conversations/actions around behavior to become a process of learning rather than consequence

  • Explore Restorative Practices

At Wednesday’s staff meeting the Committee focused on three main activities:

1. Share the experiences RMS teachers have had using community circles in their classrooms to build and strengthen relationships

2. Bring forward a draft revision to our office referral process that incorporates the Restorative Practices philosophy and questions:

  • What happened?

  • What were you thinking of at the time?

  • Who has been affected by what you have done?

  • In what way?

  • What do you think needs to be done to make things right?

3.  Share an example of a Resolution Circle- a circle process that can be used when significant harm has impacted the community. For this example, we used the film, Burning Bridges, produced by The International Institute for Restorative Practices.

The structure of the staff meeting incorporated the three tiers of Restorative Practices. Tier 1 focuses on community building through use of developing relationships and connecting members within the community. Tier 2 uses language as a tool that allows members of the community to work together to identify and resolve conflicts peacefully. Tier 3 has a structure that facilitates conversation and lays out a process for when significant harm has taken place.

The Committee will continue to participate in professional development opportunities to learn more about Tier 1 & 2 Restorative Practices and how schools are using these strategies successfully to promote a positive, healthy school culture.

Hanover High School currently has a process where they use Restorative Practices. You can learn more about their work by visiting their website.

7th/8th Take YRBS Tuesday

posted Feb 27, 2017, 8:58 AM by Michael Lepene

February 27, 2017

Dear 7th and 8th Grade Parents,

Tomorrow (Tuesday) we will be administering the 2017 Vermont Middle School Youth Risk Behavior Survey.  The survey will be done in social studies classes and takes about 30 minutes.  Our district has been supporting this effort for a number of years and we have consistently found it to be helpful in terms of looking at issues that our students are dealing with and planning on ways to better support our kids.  I have included a comprehensive document about the Survey in this note.  Parents do have the right to “opt out” of the activity if they choose to do so.  In that case I would just have students work independently in the library.  Students taking the survey will not miss any class time as this is the designated activity for the period.  I do apologize for the short notice.  Please let me know by tomorrow morning if you do not want your child to take this survey.  Feel free to contact me if you have questions.

Thanks,

John LaCrosse

RMS School Counselor

 

Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey Frequently Asked Questions

The Vermont Department of Health (Department of Health) frequently receives questions about its Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). Below are answers to some of the most common questions.

What is the Youth Risk Behavior Survey, or YRBS?

The YRBS is a national survey that was developed in 1990 to monitor priority health risk behaviors and has been administered in Vermont since 1993.

The YRBS is a paper, classroom-based survey that is completed during the first few months of an odd numbered year. Two questionnaires are used, one for middle school students in grades six through eight (30 minutes) and one for high school students in grades nine through 12 (50 minutes).

The YRBS is an important public health tool for measuring the health of Vermont’s youth. The types of questions asked include risk behaviors (e.g. smoking and poor physical activity), substance use (e.g. alcohol and marijuana use), demographics (e.g. gender), perceptions around behavior (e.g. what do parents think about youth drinking), and youth assets (e.g. think you matter in your community).

The Department of Health and Agency of Education receive funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to implement the YRBS.

Who is eligible for the Vermont YRBS?

All Vermont youth in grades 6 through 12 are eligible. Participant schools are primarily public, public-private, or an interstate school. However, there are some independent and fully private schools who participate. Home schooled students do not currently take the YRBS.

How many students complete the survey?

In Vermont, all middle and high school students are invited to participate in the survey. The total number of respondents varies, but on average about 35,000 take the survey each cycle. In 2015, 99% of high schools participated, with more than 21,000 students completing the survey, over 13,500 middle school students participated. Nationwide, from 1991 through 2015, more than 3.8 million high school students have completed the survey.

Is the YRBS anonymous?

Yes, student participation in the YRBS is both anonymous and voluntary. Students complete an optically scannable questionnaire booklet that contains no personal identifier.

Do all states participate in the YRBS?

No. In 2015, 47 states and over 20 large urban school districts, territories, and tribal governments completed the high school survey in at least some capacity. Less than half of states participated in the middle school survey. There is also a YRBS that is completed at the national level by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

How recent is YRBS data?

YRBS data is collected during the first two to three months of each odd numbered year. For example, 2015 data was collected during January and February of 2015. Once data collection is complete the data are processed by the CDC before becoming available for analysis by the state. This can take several months, so YRBS data is often not available until the following winter.

November, 2016 - Page 1 of 2

Can you provide school level data using the Vermont YRBS?

School data is generally only provided to the school administrator, and then only upon request. The main reason for this is due to privacy concerns about the potential ability to identify individuals within a school based upon their responses. Data can be analyzed at the supervisory union level, as well as by county, hospital service area, and VDH District Office. State, county, and supervisory union reports are available online.

Can I compare results from one supervisory union with those from another one?

It is natural to want to know how individual supervisory unions or school districts compare to each other. While comparing the supervisory union to the state can be helpful in order to determine how a particular supervisory union is doing, the Department of Health discourages communities from comparing supervisory unions to each other. There are a number of reasons for this, but the major reason involves sample size: when comparing two estimates from a small sample, the confidence intervals will often overlap (meaning there is no significant difference), even when the difference might appear large.

How are the results used?

YRBS results are used widely by a variety of stakeholders across Vermont. These include the Department of Health, Agency of Education, individual schools and supervisory unions, as well as non-profit and other organizations in the community. While the users of the data are varied, most use it for similar reasons. The most common ways YRBS data are used are to identify and target risk behaviors or populations for intervention (e.g., tobacco use prevention), evaluation of efforts to reduce risk behaviors, and to support grant requests for funds to address these behaviors.

Will this survey cause students to initiate or increase high-risk behaviors?

There is no evidence that simply asking students about health behaviors will encourage them to try that behavior. The causes and determinants of health risk behaviors are very complex. Students receive regular exposure to information about tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use; violence; and sexuality through their school curricula, the media, parents, friends, and community organizations. Exposure to a small number of questions on any one topic is not likely to cause a significant change in behavior—either good or bad.

Do students answer the questions truthfully?

Research indicates data of this nature may be gathered as reliably from adolescents as from adults. The Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention use various data cleaning methods when processing YRBS data to help identify the small percentage of students who falsify their answers. To obtain truthful answers, students must perceive the survey as important and know that procedures have been developed to protect their privacy and allow for anonymous participation. For more information, please see: http://healthvermont.gov/research/yrbs/2013/documents/do_kids_tell_the_truth_yrbs.pdf

If I have questions about the survey, who at the Department of Health can I contact?

You can contact the YRBS coordinator, Kristen Murray at kristen.murray@vermont.gov or 802-863-7276.

Principal's Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope that you have a wonderful February vacation. For those that love snow and comfortable temperatures we have a great week ahead. It has been a terrific week at RMS with some special events in addition to our usual excitement. Our 7th grade students participated in a Civil War field hospital simulation complete with chicken leg surgery. Our 8th grade students participated in our annual Renaissance Festival which culminated in a grand banquet full of food, dancing, jousting, and music this afternoon. Add in a mid-week snow storm and snow day and things have been moving quickly! As for the snow day question from last week, your responses were quick and nearly unanimous. Most felt that snow days should remain a special day free from extra school-directed "blizzard bag" - type requirements. Some expressed an interest in materials and ideas for students looking to do some fun school-related learning. Others shared the challenge of pulling kids free from devices and getting them out in the snow. I can say all of these responses resonate with me and I appreciate you sharing your thoughts. I selected the above photo in that spirit: Mr. Atkinson's PE class enjoyed the fresh snow on snowshoes this week. A great way to get some exercise and enjoy the winter! May your week ahead include some fresh tracks as well.

Sincerely,

Michael Lepene, Principal

-Thank you to all of our parent volunteers and guest teachers who helped make the 2017 Renaissance Festival a success. We appreciate your help!

-Technology in the Classroom with Mr. Warren: 6th Grade Students have been learning about the Columbian Exchange in 6th Grade Social Studies Class with Ms. Fisher.  Each student was assigned an item and asked to research the following questions:

Where did the plant/animal/disease/people come from originally, and how did it/ they move from Old World to New World, or vice versa?

What impact did the spread of this plant/animal/disease/people have on the history, culture and economy of the places to which it spread?

How does the exchange of this product continue to be present in our world today?

As a culminating project of their research, students created digital storyboards using “Storyboardthat.com”.  Storyboards are a great way for students to creatively share their academic research using backgrounds, characters, maps and drawings to help tell the story of their exchange item.  Below are some project examples:

Principal's Corner
 
Dear Parents/Guardians,
 
I hope your children are enjoying the snow day. As I pull this memo together I am watching the snow fall in the field across the street (and on the street). Snow days bring up a number of different feelings, reactions, and challenges. I'm sure, like me, you are all well aware of the challenges presented for parents of young children. Teachers feel that mixed reaction of not having to take risks on the road but seeing their best-laid instructional plans disrupted. Some students miss the routine and expectations of a great day at school. Still, there is some magic to a snow day for a child (and this adult!).
 
I saw a quote this morning that pointed to the fact that a child may create memories on a snow day that may far outlast any memories they may have created on the "regular" schedule. Certainly, I have many fantastic memories of days in the snow where I probably didn't spend more than a few minutes inside from the moment the call came in. At the same time, the loss of a school day during prime-time is difficult to make-up in the heat of June. That has led some to call for "blizzard bags" or "school-at-home" options for weather days. The idea being that, with the help of technology, students could complete assignments at home and teachers could provide feedback and support in real-time. There are a lot of variables involved but there are districts in NH and VT doing this and the NHDoE has even provided guidance as to how it should work.
 
I'm still not sure where I land on this one. I could see the benefits and opportunities afforded by a "blizzard bag" program. I could imagine some creative application of content, skills, and concepts that could easily be done at home or in the snow. I wonder about limited technology access and challenges associated with carrying out some of the assignments at home or daycare. I also see value in embracing the magic of an unexpected day full of rest, play, and child-directed fun. Perhaps they are not mutually-exclusive. 
 
I plan on posing the question to our student council and leadership class. I'm curious to hear their take. I'd welcome your thoughts too! In the meantime, I've encouraged our students to enjoy the day and also look for an opportunity to help their neighbors. I'm pretty sure we could award credit for shoveling the neighbor's walk or driveway.
 
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
 
Sincerely,
Michael Lepene, Principal
