Campbell County Schools Presents Kindergarten University k university

Join Myssi Turner to learn information about the importance of Early Childhood Development, Kentucky’s Kindergarten screener, and insight into developmentally appropriate ways to ensure your child is ready for and successful in Kindergarten. Guardians will receive resources for attending.  The kick-off event on June 4, will include a screening of No Small Matter. No Small Matter is the first feature documentary to explore the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for good in America today: early childhood education. Through poignant stories and surprising humor, the film lays out the overwhelming evidence for the importance of the first five years, and reveals how our failure to act on that evidence has resulted in an everyday crisis for American families, and a slow-motion catastrophe for the country.

The “High Attendance Day Competition” date has been set for schools in the Commonwealth of Kentucky for Thursday, September 20th.

National School Bus Safety Poster Contest poster contest

National School Bus Safety Week is an active and evolving public education program and an excellent way for parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators, and other interested parties to join forces and address the importance of school bus safety. Designed to promote school bus safety, school districts throughout the country observe School Bus Safety Week.

Many Campbell County School Students participated in the National School Bus Safety Poster Contest. Each year students create posters with a common theme; this year’s theme was “My School Bus, The Safest Form of Student Transportation!” After being judged by the Transportation department staff, we have 2 District winners that will be judged at the Kentucky State competition in June 2018. They are Reiley Elementary students Jamie Murray and Jadyen Brockert. Congratulations to both of them.

Special thanks to teacher Lederrick Wesley for his help in promoting the contest.

Campbell Co. School empowers students to think more about their own Safety

Campbell County Schools officials are using a grant of nearly $5 million to explore innovative ways to confront the lethal problem of school violence that have claimed the lives of students in places like Parkland, Florida. They are training students that were selected by their peers, whom are called student brokers, to talk about and teach how others how to stand up. The goal is for the student brokers to take a stand against bullying and to keep an eye out for potentially violent behavior.

YOU ARE INVITED!!! We need YOUR HELP!

It is time to create a new Strategic Plan for Campbell County Schools. We would like to invite you to provide input, helping us generate a new plan and a CCS GRADUATE PROFILE. What is a graduate profile?

Reiley's Plan for the Eclipse on Monday

Monday's eclipse will be viewed at Reiley with approved glasses, for all students unless parents have opted out of the event (just alert your teacher if you wish for your child not to participate).  We will be holding all BUS students until 4:00 to ensure their safe travel home.  All buses will leave by 4:05 after being loaded, so expect your child to arrive home at least 25 minutes later than normal. 

For all students who get picked up each day, or are car riders:  

All parents wishing to pick up their student will need to come INTO the building with their car tag and pick up inside the cafeteria.  We will NOT be running the car line in the back.  This way you will be supervising your child as he/she walks to the car.  ​Please come into the cafeteria, sign in, and have a seat to wait for your child.  Parents cannot come in the building before 3:00.  Again, please enter the front doors WITH your car tag, sign in at the table, and wait in the cafeteria.  Children will be dismissed one at a time to their parents.  You may want to bring a hat for your child to wear if you are concerned they will look at the sun.  Our afterschool program will run on a normal schedule.

Please see the Superintendent's message if you'd like to keep your child home for the day.  All requests will be granted.  We are looking forward to a safe, exciting day Monday!

Mason Appointed to Fill Vacant Board Seat

CAMPBELL COUNTY SCHOOLS- Mr. Rich Mason, of California, KY, has been appointed to fill the vacant seat to the Campbell County Board of Education for District #5.  Mr. Mason was one of two applicants who were interviewed by a designee of the Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt.  By statute, the commissioner of education is responsible for filling any and all vacancies to board office seats that occur between elections.  Neither the local board of education nor the district administration have any involvement in the selection of board appointees.

Mr. Mason was sworn in on August 1st and will commence with his board duties effective immediately. Mr. Mason will serve until the next general election which will occur in November of 2018, at which time someone will be elected to complete the remaining two years until the term is complete in December of 2020. 

Mr. Mason has previous experience as a member of the Campbell County Board of Education, serving from January 2005 until December 2016.  He was narrowly defeated in the November 2016 election by Judge Tim Nolan, who resigned his post in April 2017.

For any questions, please contact Ms. Connie Pohlgeers or Dr. David Rust at 859-635-2173.

Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence Parent Leadership Training Available

The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence will bring a new parent leadership training one-day “basecamp” to northern Kentucky in April. The camp will give parents a look inside public education in Kentucky and provide them with tools to effectively engage in their children’s school, said Helen Carroll, NKY parent leadership coordinator. Since 1997, the Prichard Committee has trained more than 300 northern Kentucky parents through the Governor’s Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership. GCIPL is a five-day training that gives parents a deep dive into public education, including the Kentucky Academic Standards, accountability, school data and school governance.

Last year, northern Kentucky superintendents suggested that Pritchard help parents and community members become in engaged in efforts to support achievement for all students. The Prichard Committee responded to the call and created this one-day training program, open to any parent in Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Pendleton, Grant, Bracken or Gallatin counties. The training will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. April 29 at the Kenton County Public Library in Covington. There is no cost and meals will be provided. Space is limited, so register soon at http://tiny.cc/gciplbasecamp.

Campbell Nationally Ranked – 9th time in 4 years Campbell Nationally Ranked – 9th time in 4 years

CAMPBELL COUNTY SCHOOLS – Campbell County School District learned this week that Campbell County High School has received yet another national ranking. CCHS was ranked as one of “America’s Most Challenging High Schools” by the Washington Post with Campbell County High School ranking 9th out of all public high schools in the State of Kentucky.  Schools who are national ranked are given an index score.   The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E).

This is the 9th National Ranking for the NKY Campbell County School System in four years. (See rankings below).  The district is also classified as a Distinguished/Progressing District on Kentucky State Assessments.

Campbell County Receives 8th National Ranking in 4 Years!

Campbell County School District learned this morning that Campbell County High School has received yet another national ranking! CCHS received a Silver ranking from U.S. News and World Report ranking CCHS 17th in the State of Kentucky and 1606 in the nation.  A three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using their performance on the math and reading parts of their state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.

This is the 8th National Ranking for the NKY Campbell County School System in four years! The district is also classified as a Distinguished/Progressing District on Kentucky State Assessments. WAY TO GO CAMELS!

KY Education Commissioner to Host Town Hall Meeting at NKU

Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt announced he will host a series of regional Town Hall Meetings across the Commonwealth to gather feedback from Kentuckians on how they define school success. The ideas and suggestions collected at the meetings will be used by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to inform the development of a new and more effective accountability system, something Pruitt has listed among his priorities since the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) hired him last fall.

The Town Hall Meetings are critical to this effort, and I hope parents, community members, teachers, students, legislators, business owners and concerned citizens will come to these meetings ready to share their thoughts and ideas,” he added. “Together we will create a new system that will ensure we do the very best for all our kids and provide them with a well-rounded education that will prepare them to be successful, productive citizens of the Commonwealth.”

Commissioner Pruitt will be at Northern Kentucky University on Monday, April 25th from 6:30pm - 8:00pm at the James C. and Rachel M. Votruba Student Union-Ballroom on Kenton Drive on Monday, April 25th .

Beta Club - Hearts of Service

The Reiley Beta Club proved they possess “hearts of service” (a quality necessary for invitation to the club) by completing service projects throughout the year, allowing them to raise money to donate to two foundations.  They chose Autism Speaks and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to each receive a $500 donation.  Autism Speaks was chosen because Katie Ruschman, parent of a Reiley student with autism and head of local group, Parker’s Puzzle Posse, has raised money and donated numerous items to Reiley’s autism unit.  These items (5 iPads with covers, iPad keyboards, an inkjet printer, ink, Velcro, pencil weights, and thick pencils) help remove barriers for students with autism.  They students felt it was a priority to give back to this generous group by donating to their team for the recent Cincinnati Walk Now for Autism Speaks, which promotes awareness and research for autism.  The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) was selected as the other group to receive a $500 donation because one of the Beta Club members has diabetes.  She will participate in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes to help raise money for research and spread awareness for the disease.  The Beta Club felt it was imperative to show support for one of their own.  Way to go, Reiley Beta Club!

Over the last three weeks, Reiley Elementary students have been digging deep to raise "Pennies for Patients," a fundraiser program for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Students collected change at home in personal banks that they cashed in each week.  They also completed several additional challenges.  The first week students participated in a “Make Leukemia and Lymphoma Disappear” activity where students paid for large sticky paper to cover up large Leukemia and Lymphoma signs.  The second week students deposited money into jars to see teachers complete various challenges.  All the jar challenges were met!  We had teachers dress up in various costumes, Mrs. Boggs cut her hair to donate it for cancer wigs, Ms. Groeschen let students make her a human sundae, Mrs. Rath let every student duct-tape her to the wall during lunch.  On Friday evening spring break got started with Mr. Tucker spending the evening on the roof of the school.   

The second grade teachers headed up this service learning   project, which included many opportunities to teach with lessons for the students and for public service announcements about Leukemia and Lymphoma.  The school goal was set at $500.00.  At the end of the three weeks the grand total raised was $5,151.14!!!!  This amount included an anonymous donation of $1,000.  We can’t be any prouder of the students’ efforts and understanding that they can make a difference in our world.  Go Roadrunners!

Pennies for Patients

Reiley students will be taking part in The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Pennies for Patients Program. Students and teachers will collect spare change to support LLS's mission "to help find a cure for leukemia and lymphoma to improve the quality of life for patients and their families." Students will be provided with collection boxes and each week the donations will be tallied. Our goal is to raise at least $500.00, and we can do it! The second grade service learning project began with a school wide kick off assembly on Friday, March 8th.  In addition to student collection boxes, each of the three weeks of fundraising is made exciting by a different theme including a week of making leukemia and lymphoma “disappear” by purchasing paper cut outs to cover the word leukemia on a large banner in the cafeteria.  The second week of the fundraiser encourages teachers to get in on the fun by offering students a “prize” if the teacher’s donation goal is met by students.  Will Mr. Tucker spend the night on the roof?  Will Mrs. Rath be duct taped to the wall?  The final week of the fundraiser allows students to participate in crazy opportunities like “Whack Away Cancer” (wearing wacky clothes) and “Splash Out Cancer” (wear something tropical) for a donation of 50 cents.  Second grade students are helping out by selling paper cut outs during breakfast, helping younger students count the money they’ve collected, and keeping track of what students paid to participate in week three’s activities.  Second grade teachers are using the opportunity to deliver instruction in addition to the lessons learned about helping others.  Counting money, fractions, and letter writing are a few of the concepts that will be taught through the project

MAP is Underway at Reiley

The last and final MAP testing for the year began!  Next to KPREP, MAP is probably the most important tests that our students can take.  With the MAP data that results from the testings, teachers can teach students what they need to know.  Teachers get very involved reports from the domains and subdomains on each content area that students take.  From these data points, teachers determine what their next steps are for the students so they can become successful readers, mathematicians and scientists. And the best part is that students get their activities from Compass based on their scores from MAP.  That means that each student is getting what they need from Compass in addition to the instruction from their teachers!  MAP also has a predictive feature and based on each students' score, MAP will predict what the student will score on the KPREP for grades 3-5.  In the past, the predictive rate has been over 97% accurate.  Homeroom teachers have sent out times for your child to test with their class, so please make sure your child has a good breakfast and good rest the night before. Good luck everyone!

Art is All Around Us at Reiley

Reiley staff, family and friends enjoyed a painting lesson in February.  Staff enjoyed creating a snowy winter scene under the directions from the artist from The Twisted Brush.  The event took place after school, and as you can see talent abounds at Reiley!  Everyone agreed that it was truly a wonderful experience.  Creativity and fellowship is certainly good for the soul as you can see from the smiles from the staff!   Plans are underway to have another Twisted Brush painting night in April. 

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

Healthy Challenge 2013

The Produce Man came to Reiley Elementary today to inspire Reiley Roadrunners to do their best on Produce Man's Healthy Challenge 2013.  An assembly kicked off our healthy challenge today.  On Friday, March 1st, students and staff will begin tracking the number of fruit and vegetable servings they eat for the week.  During this time, the students will learn more about serving size and making healthy food choices.  They will also learn that sugary drinks add up to many extra calories and leads to unwanted weight gain and possible diseases.  Participating in the challenge also gives students a chance to win prizes and gives Reiley a chance to win $1,000.00.  Let's get going and make those healthy choices - Let's meet Produce Man's challenge!

PTA Brings The Arts to Reiley

The wonderful Reiley PTA brought the ballet to students this week!  All grade levels were treated to performance and instruction about ballet on Monday, January 14th.  Grades K-2 attended a 50 minute performance followed by a repeat performance for students in grades 3-5.  Students were introduced to basic ballet concepts and they were also allowed time to ask questions of the professional dancers.  Because the PTA had raised enough money through their early fundraising, they were able to bring in this wonderful arts program at no cost to the students or to the school.  We are so appreciative of all the work that our PTA does for each and every student and staff member at Reiley.  Thank you for bringing wonderful events to students and staff and for encouraging the love of the arts for all!

Shall We Dance?

Third grade students performed their rendition of The Nutcracker ballet in December before a packed audience in the Reiley gym.  Students in the classes of Ms. Jones, Ms. Trowbridge and Ms. Humphreys practiced their various dances at recess and before school in order for them to be prepared to perform.  Students learned not only about the elements of dance, but also learned drama vocabulary.  Pictured to the left are two couples dancing a Spanish dance.  A special recognition to Ms. Kelly Jones who has performed the ballet with her students and/or grade level students for well over 25 years.  She began the tradition when she taught at Alexandria Elementary.  Many of the elements of this student performance has been developed and originated with Ms. Jones.  Over the years, Ms. Jones has purchased all the beautiful costumes for each dancer, as well as all the props. This year, Ms. Jones' assistant for the ballet was a former student who is now in college.  She routinely has students come back to watch the performance and to let her know what an impact it had on their education. Congratulations to Ms. Jones for her continued commitment to her students and encouraging the love of the arts for children!

Congratulations!

Technology is TOPS At Reiley Elementary
Teachers and students at Reiley Elementary use technology every day in every way to enhance the curriculum and to actively engage students.  Pictured is Mrs. Kellie Trowbridge and her third grade class as she is using the MOBI. The MOBI is  a mobile writing device that allows teachers to walk around the room while they interact with the image on the projector screen.  Each teacher at Reiley has a MOBI to use in their classroom.  Since the MOBIs are wireless, they can be easily passed to students so they can also interact with images as well.  Teachers have attended several after school technology trainings within the past two weeks, because they are eager to continue learning how to use technology and learn strategies that will make their students successful learners!  Continue to follow our web as we have some more awesome technology projects to share with you in the very near future!

Kids Helping Kids
Roadrunners are helping boys and girls in Uganda, Africa by collecting and sending school supplies to them.  This Service Learning Project will benefit students who are desperately in need of school materials.  Uganda is located in Africa and 76% of the country's population lives below the international poverty line of $2.00 a day.  Life expectancy is 45 years and 320 Ugandans die each day from malaria.  The unemployment rate is 45%.  Help us help provide the children of Uganda a better life by sending in school supplies so that they have the tools to learn and succeed.  Send in paper, pencils, markers, rulers etc.   The one thing that you cannot send in is crayons - why?  Because it so hot there that the crayons melt in their un- air conditioned schools.  Help us make the world a better place for boys and girls in Africa.
Roadrunners Helping Others - Soles for Souls
Reiley Roadrunners are helping others who are less fortunate with their Service Learning Project - Soles for Souls.  Your recycled shoes could become someone else's first pair, very special pair or a much needed pair anywhere in the world.  Roadrunners are working with ShoeBox Recyling to help people in need.  If you have shoes to offer, please send them to school and deposit them in the box located just outside the library.  Shoes can be paired men's, women's and kids' shoes that are still usable.  That means no holes in the soles and no wet or mildewed pairs.  Shoes that cannot be accepted are heavy winter boots, skates, blades, flip-flops, slippers or shoes that are not usable.  This is your chance to help a soul in need!

At Reiley Elementary, we're on our way to wonderful new learning experiences.  Our school-wide theme this year is Oh! The Places You'll Go!  Students are currently taking MAP tests at all grade levels and experiencing awesome hands-on activities in their classes.  We are focusing on getting students career and college ready and we're doing this by infusing our lessons with the four C's of 21st century skills.  These four C's are collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity.  Please take a moment to watch our video that showcases our students and the fact that we are ON OUR WAY!

Great Things Happen at Reiley Elementary
Third grade classes are busy preparing for a cook-out and a circus!  Ms. Clayton's class is busy getting ready for a year end camp-out/cook-out which will be held on the Reiley grounds.  Jones' Jumpers are busy preparing for a circus which will be held on Friday, May 18th (also on the Reiley grounds).  Ms. Jones' students have been working on performance of magic acts, acrobatics and other wonderful circus feats.  Ms. Jones and Ms. McCashland have been book buddies all year and their classes are working on the circus jointly.  Ms. Jones has incorporated a writing aspect to the event, as several of her students are writing articles about the circus for their class web page. 
Other classes are also busy planning wonderful year-end field trips too.  The fifth grade classes will go to the Newport Aquarium this week and even get to go behind the scenes to be able to learn more about the workings of the aquarium.  Wonderful things continue to happen at Reiley Elementary!  Stay tuned for pictures and videos of our happenings!
Students Using Technology to Learn and to Teach Order of Operations Fixed.wmv
A team of fifth grade students collaborated in the creation of a video production of how to remember the order of operations in math.  Under the direction of Ms. Lindsey and Mrs. Trowbridge, students not only came up with the lyrics, but also made the video using movie maker.  What a great way to incorporate technology and then a great way to teach others about the order of operations!  Enjoy!
Heavy "Medal" Band
                                       
This week, fourth and fifth grade students were recognized at Reiley for their past performance on the KCCT last year.  The students pictured above are fifth grade students who received medal awards for being distinguished on various content areas.  Many students received medals and certificates and their accomplishments celebrated and acknowledged.  The sound of all the medals clanking in the halls sounded like a heavy "medal" band!  Congratulations students!  At Reiley, we celebrate growth and acknowledge everyone who does their best.  Like NED, we NEVER give up, we ENCOURAGE others and we DO our best!
NED Show Comes to Reiley
The NED Show came to Reiley this week for all third, fourth and fifth grade students.  The NED Show is a national program that promotes positive attitudes and academic achievement.  What does the acronym NED stand for?  The N stands for Never Give Up!  The E stands for Encourage Others!  The D stands for Do Your Best!  Mrs. Mercer, our Reiley counselor, brought us the NED Show.  Everyone enjoyed the exciting program and wonderful message.  Here you see Kendall from Mrs. Clayton's class being crowned with a balloon hat.  Remember NED and you'll go far!
Turn Off TV Week
Once again, it's time for Turn Off TV Week!  This is a national event that asks families to re-think the role of television in their lives.  It has an impact on students, parents and teachers.  One second grader in Pennsylvania wrote, "I I really didn't like TV Turn Off Week except I did notice that my grades went up and I was in a good mood all week."  During Turn Off TV Week, families are asked to simply switch off TV for seven days and engage in a wide variety of substitute activities.  A startling statistic from the National TV Turnoff Week - the average family in America spends 4-5 hours a day watching TV AND they spend only 35 minutes a day having a meaningful family conversation. Our kick off days here are Reiley are coordinated by Mrs. Linda Cross, FRC Coordinator and Mrs. Darlene Walton, Reiley Nurse and will be May 2 and May 3 after school from 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm.  There will be snacks and crafts and a special visit from Sherri Farley from the Extension Office with activities for students.  If your student is interested in participating, the deadline to let us know is Wednesday, April 25.  Last year, Reiley had over 100 students stay for the event!   Make plans now to reconnect with everyone and we can begin here at school on May 2nd and May 3rd!  See you there!
Time to Show What We Know!
It's time for year-end testing at Reiley Elementary!  This is the time of year that students get to shine and show what they know and what they've learned.  Testing for K-PREP (formerly known as CATS testing) will begin on May 7 and run through May 11. Students in grades 3 through 5 will be tested here at Reiley.   Teachers will be sending home more information about specific times and dates in their newsletters.  As always, we are excited here at Reiley about the growth that students have shown in reading and math and in other content areas.  Students are eager to show what they've learned and to let their Roadrunner pride sparkle!  Continue to watch teacher newsletters, Mrs. Hubbard's e-newsletters and the web to learn more about your child's testing experience.  A brochure entitled "A Parent's Guide to Accountability" along with a letter from Mrs. Hubbard is going home this week to all students in grades 3 - 5 so that parents have a clear understanding of the upcoming tests.  Please discuss the information with your child.  Parents and school staff are all partners in ensuring each child's success. Click the link to listen to Kentucky Education Commissioner Holliday's message about testing in Kentucky this year.testing in Kentucky

Speech Winners
Fifth graders Maggie and Keith were the school winners for the recent 4-H speech contest.  Both went onto compete at the  district level contest which was held at the Extension Office.  Maggie's speech was about the court system and she talked about the various jobs of the court.  Keith's speech was about raccoons, their lives, habitats, and diseases.  When asked what they learned from their experiences, Maggie said, "I received constructive criticism so I can direct myself in future speeches.  I also learned from watching others compete with their speeches."  Keith learned about "voice expression and just by changing your voice, you can emphasize what you have to say."  Congratulations to these very articulate fifth graders! 
Video Contest Winner
Fourth grader Sam, from Mrs. Hedrick's homeroom, won the school level video contest for KASA.  Each year KASA (Kentucky Association of School Administrators) offers Kentucky students the opportunity to compete in their video contest.  Each year, KASA sets the theme for the contest and this year, the contest was for students to tell about an extraordinary educator who had a profound impact on their lives.  The video rules are that the piece can be no more than 3 minutes in length, so that means that the students have to "say" quite a bit in those few minutes.  Sam chose Ms. Jones, his third grade teacher to tell about for the contest.  Sam's entry has now been sent to KASA where they will select a winner from the state of Kentucky. Winners will be notified prior to the end of the school year.  Good luck Sam - your talents are certainly shining!
Spring Break

Spring is in the air! The trees are budding and the flowers are popping up out of the ground. Reiley Elementary (along with all other Campbell County Schools) will be on Spring Break beginning Monday, April 2nd. School will resume on Monday, April 9th.

Give Expecting Nothing In Return
Reiley Elementary students, staff and families were asked to donate money to be given to three Campbell County School employees who lost everything in the recent tornadoes.  The goal was to collect $1 from each student and $10 from each staff member for a goal of $870.  The lesson we wanted to teach our students was to give expecting nothing in return.  Our Reiley family exceeded our expectations by donating $2,529.  The three employees were very appreciative of the generous donation.  Once again Reiley makes us proud.
Reiley Learns To Help Those In Need

Reiley Elementary students and staff are learning what it means to help those in need.  The following letter was sent home on Tuesday and the response is heartwarming.  We have raised over $1,000 as of today, March 8th.  We will post the grand total on Friday.

Dear Reiley Families,
 
Many of our community members have been impacted by the weather events of this past week. There are students and staff members in the Campbell County School System who have lost so much. It is Reiley Elementary’s desire to reach out to our friends and neighbors who are in need. We believe this is the model we should put forth for our students. As Booker T. Washington said, “If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.” We would like to provide our students, staff and Reiley families the opportunity to lift someone else up.
 
We are asking that each student donate one dollar to go towards gift cards to be purchased for our Campbell County families who are in need. We are asking each staff member to donate ten dollars. If each student and each staff member participates we will raise $870. Together we can make a difference. Please join us in our efforts and help us teach our students that when people are in need we help and expect nothing in return. 
 
If you know of a Reiley family who needs help with storm relief please call 635-2118 and let us know. 
 
Thank you in advance for helping us reach out to our community while teaching our students a very valuable lesson. Please send donations by Friday, March 9th so that we can deliver our gift this weekend. 
 
 
 
With gratitude,


 
Principal
 
 
Dreamfest 2012 Dreamfest 2012.mpg
The Northern Kentucky Association for Gifted Education partnered with Northern Kentucky University to sponsor the annual Dreamfest Gifted and Talented Conference for elementary and middle school students.  Dreamfest provides a chance for 1,000 northern Kentucky gifted and talented students to experience small group sessions in math, science and the arts.  The workshops are presented by community experts in their field.  This year, our Roadrunner 4th and 5th grade Gifted and Talented students attended Dreamfest on March 6th.  The students enjoyed hands-on sessions in "Math Magic", "Croc Talk", "How to Build a Better Baseball Team" and many more.  The whole group session had students up and doing the Zumba and then they were entertained by a scientist magician!  It was an amazing event, and our video clip captures some of the wonderful moments of the day!

Keyboarding is More Than Just Typing
Students in the third grade classes of Ms. Jones and Ms. Clayton are learning to keyboard using the Writers Plus devices. Reiley students begin learning to keyboard in third grade and continue in the fourth grade.  Keyboarding is an important psychomotor skill that all students need to learn in order to prepare for the future and keyboarding is necessary for using computers competently.  The Writers Plus takes the students through 116 lessons at the pace of the student.  It trains fingers to respond correctly and quickly to press the correct keys until it becomes habit.  At this beginning level, more emphasis is placed on proper form - not speed.  We continue to help students gain those 21st Century skills that are necessary for the future!

Winter MAP Continues
Winter MAP testing continues in the district until January 13th.  MAP which stands for Measures of Academic Progress, tests students in a variety of content areas.  All students take tests in reading and math.  Depending upon the grade level, some students also test in language usage and science.  MAP tests are given three times a year and this is the second series of tests, called the Winter MAP.  The last series will be given beginning March 1st to April 30th (Spring MAP).  At Reiley, we are excited to be able to test using MAP because it helps us deliver instruction that is aimed at moving all students forward.  Teacher use the results from MAP to develop small group instruction so that each child is academically getting what they need.  It gets even better!  Students also are able to use a computer program called Compass Learning that ties directly into individual test scores, so that the program also offers students challenging work that suits their individual needs.  Reiley staff is very excited about the fantastic growth that students have experienced since the Fall MAP, and will soon be sharing results with parents.  If you would like to know more, about MAP and the exciting features, click on learn more.
Children Helping Children
The Kindergarten classes of Mrs. Donna Schneider and Ms. Julie Weber showed how much they care for others.  As part of a service learning project in December, the classes collected toys, games and activities for Children's Hospital.  The kindergarteners also created beautiful handmade cards for the children during an activity station. 

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It's not."  ~Dr. Seuss

"Fancy Nancy" Visits Kindergarten "Fancy Nancy" Visits Kindergarten
"Fancy Nancy" made a visit to the kindergarten classrooms this week to read about her Favorite Fancy Words.  Kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Schneider and Ms. Weber, have worked with their students on the use of great vocabulary and especially adjectives.  Reiley Staff Developer, Mrs. Nancy Burns, came dressed as the book character (Fancy Nancy) and read Fancy Nancy's Favorite Fancy Words From Accessories to Zany by Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser.  Learning new words and developing great vocabulary are skills critical for good readers.  Ms. Weber and Mrs. Schneider are so excited because many of their students are already reading and more are developing those skills.  Way to read little kindergarten Roadrunners!
"Choosing a goal and sticking to it changes everything." Scott Reed
Mrs. Clayton, third grade teacher, works with a student in her class to help him establish some SMART goals for himself in reading and math.  Mrs. Clayton's students keep individual data folders in which they record and track their progress each week.  Reiley teachers and students know that setting goals sets our minds on achievement and ultimately success,  Without goals, we would tend to become scattered in our thoughts and actions.  Students who self monitor their progress develop more of a sense of motivation and are empowered to succeed!  The bottom lines for goal setting is that it encourages student ownership of learning, encourages student engagement and encourages student responsibility!  Go Roadrunners!
Read The Writing On The Wall!
Fourth grade student, Sam, writes his definition of a vocabulary word on the gigantic 4th Grade Word Wall.  Fourth grade teachers, Mrs. Randall, Ms. Pryse and Mrs. Hedrick decided to take their entire wall between their classrooms and devote to 4th grade content vocabulary word wall.  Working with vocabulary is a Marzano strategy that great learners engage in and can benefit from.  All students can stop and read "the writing on the wall" as classes go past the wall on the way to their own classes upstairs. All students will benefit and further their own understanding of content just by "reading the wall!"

Engaging Social Studies - The Living History Museum
Fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Bonita Pack, captivates her class in her role of Elizabeth Van Lew (better known as "Crazy Beth" from the Civil War era).  Mrs. Pack, teaches social studies to all the 5th graders at Reiley.  She coordinates a Living History Museum annually in October.  Each student selects a known person from the past to portray.  The student researches that individual and then on the day of the Museum comes dressed as that person.  Each fifth grade teacher has their students stand in their room and when someone comes to visit the museum, they go into the role of their character.  As you can see from the picture, this hands-on learning serves to highly engage the students.  The Living History Museum this year will be held on October 28th.  Stay tuned to our web site so that you can view pictures from this year's special event.

Head Custodian Dennis - A True Champion
Dennis Schwartz, Head Custodian at Reiley Elementary, participated in the 2nd Annual Dragon Boat Kentucky Festival on Saturday, September 10th.  The Dragon Boat Paddling for the Pink is sponsored by the Women's Wellness Center of St. Elizabeth Hospital and the Kentucky Thorough-Breasts.  Dennis' team from his church (was composed of 22 men and women) competed against 59 other teams and won!  There was some very stiff competition including some teams which was made up of military men and women.  Dennis is a cancer survivor himself and he also had an aunt die of breast cancer.  Dennis attributed their awesome win to his team and his team captain.  Team Captain, Michelle Caldwell, is currently battling cancer herself.  Dennis commented that "like life - it is always about the team and working together as a team for success."  Way to go Dennis for being such a great ambassador for the community and for those who are struggling with cancer or have loved ones who are struggling.  You are a true champion!
Technology is Tops at Reiley!
Fourth grade teachers, Ms. Randall, Ms. Hedrick and Ms. Pryse, wasted no time in getting technology instruction to their new students.  During the second week of school, all three teachers began instructing their students with "The Writers."  Writers are portable keyboards that teaches students keyboarding instruction.  Formal keyboarding instruction with the Writers begins in grade 3 at Reiley.  Students go through their Writer lessons daily for anywhere from 15-20 minutes.  Daily practice and not the length of time is critical to acquiring good typing habits.  Ms. Burns, Reiley Staff Developer, is the Writer instructor and she goes to each 3rd, 4th and 5th grade class to start students on their keyboarding odyssey when it's their turn for the Writers

Reiley Elementary Boundaries
Roadrunners Off to An Out of This World Year!
Reiley students were met with smiles and happy faces from Reiley teachers and staff on their first day of school, Wednesday, August 17th.  Principal Julie Hubbard met students at the door and visited every classroom to make students feel welcome.  The first few days of school were spent in teaching routines and rules.  Reiley staff knows that success during the school year is determined by establishing excellent classroom and school procedures during the very first week of school.  Pictured here is Principal Hubbard on the first day of school, as she instructs a kindergarten student on what to do with his lunch tray in the cafeteria.  Reiley is off to a great year!  Great students + great staff + great instruction = An Out of this World Year!
A Galaxy of Great Staff
Reiley Staff has had fun this summer creating a bulletin board for the front lobby that incorporates the school-wide space theme.  The bulletin board theme is "Through Space and Time - A Galaxy of Great Staff."  Each staff member had their picture taken during the initial Professional Day Trainings and then were asked to bring in a photo of themselves from their own elementary days.  Each staff had fun as we reflected on our own elementary experiences and shared with one another.  We know the pictures will be sure to be a hit with students - as students always wonder what their teachers looked like "back in the day!" 
3 - 2 - 1 Blast Off To An Awesome Year!
The rooms have been readied and everyone at Reiley Elementary is anxiously awaiting the arrival of our students on Wednesday, August 17th!  Our school-wide theme this year is "space."  Each room is filled with theme related bulletin boards, folders, materials and resources as we blast off into an out of this world year!
