Dear Edgewood families,
Our PBIS team planned an exciting initiative to encourage positive behavior. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention System. The team developed “your passport to success.” The students in each classroom will be issued a student passport which contains all the rules and behaviors expected in the hallway, upon arrival, in the lunchroom, restrooms, at assemblies and during fire drills. As the teachers go over the behaviors expected, the students will get a stamp in their passport. These passports will be kept in the classrooms, as an effort to encourage positive behaviors. A bulletin board in the corridor highlights this initiative.

We will continue to highlight writing, through the use of ACES which stands for A-answer the question, C-cite evidence, E-expand on evidence and S-summary statement. As we transition from PARCC to RICAS, we will continue to focus on the reading and writing connection. Students are learning to become critical readers that are able to make inferences and to cite evidence to support their ideas.

In the area of math, we continue to make progress with EUREKA, our new math curriculum. Students are becoming more proficient in the area of mathematical thinking to solve complex problems.

Mon. Nov. 20th – PTO meeting – 6:00 library

Nov. 23rd – Nov. 24th – Thanksgiving recess

Estimadas familias de Edgewood,
Nuestro equipo de PBIS planeó una iniciativa emocionante para fomentar el comportamiento positivo. PBIS significa Sistema de Intervención de Comportamiento Positivo. Los estudiantes en cada salón de clases recibirán un pasaporte de estudiante que contiene todas las reglas y comportamientos esperados en el pasillo, a su llegada, en el comedor, los baños, en las asambleas y durante los simulacros de incendio. A medida que los maestros repasan los comportamientos esperados, los estudiantes recibirán un sello en su pasaporte. Estos pasaportes se mantendrán en las aulas, como un esfuerzo para fomentar comportamientos positivos. Un boletín en el pasillo destaca esta iniciativa.

Seguiremos poniendo de relieve la escritura, a través del uso de ACES que significa A-responder a la pregunta, C-citar evidencia, E-expandir la evidencia y S-resumen de la declaración. Al pasar de PARCC a RICAS, continuaremos enfocándonos en la conexión de lectura y escritura. Los estudiantes están aprendiendo a convertirse en lectores críticos que son capaces de hacer inferencias y citar pruebas para apoyar sus ideas.

En el área de matemáticas, seguimos avanzando con EUREKA, nuestro nuevo currículo de matemáticas. Los estudiantes son cada vez más competentes en el área de pensamiento matemático para resolver problemas complejos.

Dear Edgewood Families: 2017-2018

Our school’s air quality has significantly improved with the new heating and air conditioning system. Our school was recognized by state officials, who honored us with a special award.

Our action plans for the 2017-2018 school year have been updated and we will emphasize student engagement. We will continue to prioritize writing and math in our classes. The plans are posted on the school website. Our mission is to support the common core which will help students to become successful digital citizens.

This year we are encouraging parents to use our list serv. In an effort to become more efficient with communication, we will be announcing your child’s teacher for next year in an email to be delivered the second week of August. In case you do not belong to a listserv you can contact the school.

Throughout the year, our family involvement committee will be looking for support and volunteers to help us provide the best educational experiences for our children and their families. Please contact Robin Gervais at the Cranston Family Center 270-8495 to become more involved, we need your input.
