ADDISON MORNING CARPOOL

To help with safety, our morning carpool line will now be curbside drop-off only. 

Only those parents who have a meeting, are having breakfast or are staying in the building for a little bit will be allowed to park and come in.

We ask all others to wait in the carpool line patiently.

Thank you for your support.

Parenting in the Digital Age

As our students use technology, it is important for us to make sure they are using it safely.

At a recent Parent Munch and Mingle, we brought in Dr. Patti Agatston to discuss “Parenting in the Digital Age.”

Topics covered were Kids and Technology, Digital Citizenship, Popular Apps, Tips for communicating and monitoring your kids, and Cyberbullying.

 

Some tips to consider at home include:

1)    Talk about what sites are okay and what sites are off-limits

2)    Model positive behavior

3)    Review appropriate educational applications

4)    Talk about developmentally appropriate manners

5)    Find appropriate ways to monitor your child’s use in the digital world

6)    Set up agreements ahead of time

7)    Consider setting up filtering at the wireless router level

AMAZING ADDISON ATTENDANCE

Wow! We are so proud of our school-wide attendance kickoff! During the month of October, we began attendance incentives to increase students being at school each day! Research shows that school attendance is a direct correlation to student achievement. In addition,  attendance impacts Addison’s CCRPI (College & Career Ready Performance Index) score and we want our school to receive the highest possible rating! Parents, please encourage your children to come to school each day as long as they are healthy and schedule doctor’s appts. after 11:15AM.

During the month of April, the following classrooms received a piece of playground equipment that can be used at recess time. They received this as a result of having the highest classroom attendance in the grade level for the entire month. Here are the winners for the month of April and their attendance percentages:

Kindergarten: Ms. Matacotta 97.4%

First grade: Ms. Shore 98.6%

Second grade: Ms. Burdett 98.8%

Third grade: Ms. Warren 98.8%

Fourth grade: Ms. Tansill 99.7%

Fifth grade: Ms. Westbrook 97.8%

RISE: Mr. Villegas 99.0%

We look forward to seeing which classes are the attendance winners for April! You can view the winning classrooms and other classroom percentages on the ATTENDANCE bulletin board located in the Addison cafeteria!


Congratulations to Mrs. Newell on receiving the 2016 Cobb Foundation Impact Grant for I-pads to provide a flipped classroom experience in the Addison Math Lab.


  


Congratulations to Mr. Villegas and Ms. Kerr on receiving a grant from the Cobb Tank for a sensory room and sensory breaks for our students throughout the school.
