“Together we are building a legacy of excellence, one student at a time.” VOLUME XXXIV, NUMBER 8 April 2013
Superintendent’s Corner
Mr. Dean Koppelman, Superintendent
“Together we are building a legacy of excellence, one student at a time.” I have a hunch you are thinking like me, “When is winter going to end and when will we start to see some nice spring temperatures?” Mother Nature in our part of the country has a way to test our mental fortitude, our mental toughness. It is a challenge to continually stay positive when the weather can cause one to feel negative, edgy, and short with people. We have been through so much together and we always seem to work through the tough times. I know this time will be no different as I see us continuing to work together in a positive manner and with others in order to move forward. The weather will get better! Time sure has a way to move quickly and this school year is no exception. In approximately two months, Graduation, the most important event of the school year, will be taking place. It seems like just yesterday we were starting school. Now, we are in the middle of planning for school next year, from staffing to supplies, technology updates, textbooks, and summer maintenance. I would like to mention we have a very important visitation to our school district by a team of outside educators scheduled for April 23 and April 24. This will be our Accreditation review, which is a very important process for our district. The visitation team will be visiting each of our buildings. They will stop in several classrooms to observe classroom instruction, talk with teachers, students, administration, parents, and school board members. Upon completion of their review, the team will provide an exit interview for our administration, school board, and our school improvement team members. I look forward to these reviews as it provides us with an open, outside view of our school district. I believe the visitation team will report on many good things we are doing in our school district and they will also have some recommendations to help make our school district even better. I always view these visitations in a positive light, as we need to know if what we are doing is on the right track and just as importantly we need to know what improvements 1
we can make to help our district move forward and provide an even better quality education for our students. I have received some very exciting news in regards to Adequate Yearly Progress Report scores for each of our buildings and our overall district score. This is a preliminary report but it indicates that all of our buildings made Adequate Yearly Progress as did our district as a whole!! We should be receiving the official report in the next week, but congratulations and thank you needs to go out to all of our students and staff for working hard to achieve these standards. I am very proud of all of you! Great work! It seems Mother Nature has some potential to possibly create some flooding concerns. We are keeping a close eye on these reports and I am meeting with our Building Principals to “dust off” our previous flood planning material and start the discussion once again as to preparation and planning for a potential flood situation. There remains 3-4 weeks in which Mother Nature could cause us some problems so the best thing we can do right now is to have some initial discussion, and prepare as much as possible.
In some legislative news, House Bill 1319 (K-12 funding Bill) continues to make its’ way through the Senate. I understand there is going to be continued discussion and possible amendments before it would be ready to be discussed on the floor of the full Senate. House Bill 1215 (Carrying of Firearms by school staff) is making its’ way through the Senate also. I believe there is going to be an amendment/s that would require more specific training for someone to be qualified to do so. As I have stated previously, my personal feeling on this topic is I would prefer there would be no firearms in school buildings, other than one that would be carried by a School Resource Officer. I fully support the position of a School Resource Officer being able to work in schools to establish a rapport with students and staff. This alone can help to prevent some potential difficulties that may occur. One other piece of the bill indicates school boards may enter into executive (closed) session to discuss this topic. Personally, with a sensitive topic of a staff member possibly being able to carry a firearm in school, I think schools would want to be in open session to allow input from their staff, parents, and community. I would want to see this happen here in Valley City. Once again, I thank you for your continued support of our school system. Take care and I hope you have a very happy and enjoyable Easter weekend!
will be used as indicators as to whether or not students need additional support and education in areas of Reading and Math. It is important that all students take these tests seriously because we do plan to use this data in making decisions on what classes students are placed in next year. These tests will be for all 7-10th graders and a select few 11th graders. I can’t emphasize enough just how important it is for the students to do their best! As I mentioned, April 23rd is the ACT test for all Juniors. This test is paid for by the state of North Dakota. It is important again, for students to get a good night’s rest and a good breakfast prior to taking the test. Colleges do ask for these results, so it is important to encourage best efforts. April 23rd we have designated as retreat day for our senior class. The entire senior class will be involved in a Youth Frontiers Wisdom Retreat. It is an opportunity for seniors to begin to draw closure with their classmates. The day is designed to be a day of solid relationship building and even provide opportunity to make amends with others so that seniors can feel positive about leaving VCHS and the relationships they have established here. More information will be coming out soon to parents of seniors.
AdvancED Accreditation Site Visit
April 23/24—we will be hosting an evaluation team to our district. As part of our accreditation process, each building will have visitors meeting with student groups, parent groups, and teacher groups to evaluate our buildings on what our strengths are and what areas we need to improve on. If you recall, as parents you were asked to fill out a school survey in regards to our building. That was just one step in the very detailed process. We are ready for the AdvancED team visit and we are excited to have them evaluate VCHS!
SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
Mrs. Kristi Brandt, Principal
“Together we are building a legacy of excellence, one student at a time” Spring is sure taking its sweet time at coming to North Dakota. Even though outside doesn’t indicate spring, in the school we are approaching the spring season of many activities, banquets, celebrations, and awards ceremonies for students. The fourth quarter began March 22nd. For parents it is that last quarter to push your students to completing all of the work and missing assignments that might help improve the grades of your students. It is so hard to believe, but it is true. Less than 9 weeks of classes left and yet there is still a lot that will and can be accomplished. I will try to highlight a few of the upcoming events, but I can’t catch them all, so please use the school website and pay attention to the emails from the school for information regarding events.
Awards Night/NHS Induction
April 29th at 6:30 pm, we’ll be hosting the annual scholarship awards night and National Honor Society induction ceremony. The awards portion of the evening will be first at 6:30 in the Theatre; the NHS Induction portion of the ceremony will be immediately following the award ceremony.
Prom/Post Prom
May 4th-Prom is an event that brings about much excitement within our student body. As a reminder, prom is for juniors and seniors. Only sophomores who have been asked by a junior or senior will be allowed to attend prom. Freshmen are not allowed to attend prom as we see this as an event for juniors and seniors. Students need to be in good standing in order to attend the events that surround Prom. VCHS students wishing to bring a nonVCHS student to prom MUST fill out the guest form and return it to Mrs. Brandt one week in advance. Forms will be available in the high school office. In the newsletter is the form for registration to the post prom party. I want to thank the Post Prom party planning committee and parents for providing a safe after prom option for students. This is important to support as a community and I thoroughly appreciate this committee’s efforts! I have heard some of their plans and it sure seems as if there are some unique ideas flowing this year. The students should just love it! 2
Testing
Mr. Winning is working with classroom teachers to begin the conversations about the required ACT test that is coming up on April 23rd. In April we will be doing our local NWEA MAP testing as well. These are computer-based tests that

long impact on our students as they grow in their skill and confidence in the fine arts. They are forming an appreciation for these activities they will carry with them throughout their lives. The talent that we have walking in our school halls is a great source of pride. Our spring sports are underway so be ready as “Mother Nature” will likely cause some delays, rescheduling, or cancellations to scheduled events. Please communicate with our coaches if or when cancellations and rescheduling of events occur. Any changes to the sports schedules can be found at the following websites: www.easterndakotaconference.org, as well as, the school website at http://www.valley-city.k12.nd.us/. As your schedules permit come out and support our athletes and enjoy the spring weather.
Cell Phone Reminder
Parents—students are not allowed to have their cell phones on during the school day outside of their lunch period. Frequently, students are receiving texts from their parents during classes and just as a warning, some students are responding to those texts and are getting their phones taken away. Please help us by limiting the texts that you send during the class-time hours between 8:30 and 3:30. We want to go into the home-stretch of the school year with the ability to finish positively and to finish strong. Thank you to the parents who have been supportive of all of our events and who have committed hours into helping make events successful for our students.
Award of Excellence
Our VCHS Girls Varsity Basketball Team and Coaches received an “Award of Excellence” for exemplary display of Sportsmanship, Ethics & Integrity. The National Federation and the NDHSAA view good sportsmanship/citizenship as a concrete measure of understanding and commitment to integrity, ethical play, and behavior. They also realize those values of good citizenship are attained through a cooperative effort. Coaches, student participants, parents, fans, school administration, school boards, and spirit groups are instrumental in helping create a positive environment in which respect for self and others is fostered.
Mr. Daniel Larson, Jr. High Principal
“Together we are building a legacy of excellence, one student at a time.” Upcoming Events: Advanced Ed Site Visit on April 23 & 24 Students are nearing the completion of this year’s classes. 8th grade students have been meeting with our 7th-9th grade Counselor, Al Sorensen, and discussing their 4 year plans. I want to take this time to remind students and parents that we do have academic help available for students before and after school. This is also the time of spring sports in which academics will affect a student’s eligibility to participate. All students need to make sure that they are working up to their potential to meet their goals and to ensure their participation in activities. We will be continuing the “Courage Retreats” for our 8th grade class in the fall of the 2013-2014 school year. September 17, 2013 is the day that the 4th Annual “Courage Retreat” for 8th grade is scheduled in the Hi-Liner Activity Center. These retreats are approximately 5 hours long and focus on helping students stand up for what is right and help them make better decisions. This past month we have had numerous opportunities for our students to display their talent in the areas of music, art, and acting. The Junior High Band and Choir concert and Junior High Art Show took place on March 12. In addition, the Junior High has recently performed the play “Hee Haw Hayride”. I am proud of our students for the time and effort they put into perfecting their skills to showcase them to the public. I also want to thank Mrs. Zinke, Mr. Kjelland, and Mrs. Foth as they continue to introduce the fine arts into the lives of our students and show them the joy that comes from being part of these activities. These activities have a life

Reading Month
Washington students were challenged to meet their AR classroom goal plus two extra AR points in February for Reading Month. The theme for Reading Month this year was “Book Boot Camp”. The students did a great job reading during the month. Total AR points by grade level were: 4th 948 points; 5th - 929 points; 6th - 983 points for a grand total of 2,860 points. The classrooms at each grade level that achieved the most points were Mrs. Corbin – 4th grade; Mrs. Kohler – 5th grade; and Mr. Beauchman - 6th grade. An assembly was held on March 6th to celebrate the success of Book Boot Camp. Names of students who met their reading goal were drawn to participate in an obstacle course designed by Mr. Fritel. The students enjoyed the competition as the races were very close. Mrs. Knodle, librarian, offered students an extra challenge and a chance to be in “The Few, The Proud, The Elite!” In addition to meeting the reading goals during the month, students had to complete five additional assignments relating to books they read. The following students met the challenge and received a medal for their outstanding achievement: Elissa Hovland, Ty Fountain, Blake Triebold, and Austin Brandt. Congratulations students!
Month of the Military Child
There are 1.7 million American children and youth under 18 with a parent serving in the military and about 900,000 with one or both parents deployed multiple times. April is designated as the Month of the Military Child, underscoring the important role military children play in the armed forces community. The Month of the Military Child is an opportunity to recognize military children and youth for their heroism, character, courage, sacrifices and continued resilience. We would like all of our students and staff to wear purple on April 15th to honor military kids. PURPLE UP!
Thank You
• To all the students, parents, and families for collecting BoxTop labels. The Washington PTO will be receiving $730.10 for this collection drive. Mrs. Boe’s and Mrs. Fitzner’s classrooms collected the most labels. Thank you to Jennifer Redfearn for organizing and mailing the labels.

Screen-Free Week - April 29 – May 5
Children ages 8-18 spend an average of: • 4.5 hours per day watching television • 1.5 hours per day using computers • More than 1 hour playing video games The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends: • No screen time for children under the age of 2 • Less than 2 hours per day for older children Excessive Screen time is linked to: • Poor school performance • Childhood obesity • Attention problems According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, one out of every ten children in the US is obese, and one out of five children is overweight. Later in life, these children risk suffering from diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and arthritis. Reducing screen time is a great way to improve the health of your family. One survey found that on average, children in the US will spend more time in front of the television (1,023 hours) than in school this year (900 hours). This means that children are almost spending three hours each day in front of the television. The same survey also suggests that many adults in the US spend up to four hours a day watching television. Maybe we are not as busy as we think we are. We are asking individuals, classrooms, or whole families to switch off ALL media (TV, gaming systems, computer for fun, cell phone for play, and MP3 players) for at least this week. Screen time reduces the amount of time children (and adults) are physically active. Screen time also decreases both family interactions and the change for learning outside the classroom. Children who are physically active are fit and healthy, less likely to take drugs, drink, or smoke, do better in school, are better citizens, and are more involved with their families. Join the thousands of people who are going media free this spring. Please consider participating in the 17th annual Screen-Free Go to Week April 29 thru May 5th this year. www.screenfree.org for more information, including activities to do as a family, during Screen-Free Week. Because children are influenced by what their parents do, it is important that whatever effort you make to exercise more, eat better, or have less screen time is done as a family.

Thanks to all who helped us celebrate National Breakfast Week by coming to eat breakfast with your child at Jefferson Elementary School. Thanks also to the cooks who provided the delicious and nutritious meal and the PTO for their support. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of a substantial breakfast. A hearty breakfast will improve test performance, reduce absences, increase attention in school and improve behavior. The bottom line is hungry kids have a hard time learning.

Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Frenzy
Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Frenzy is going strong. The kids are enjoying the fresh fruit and vegetable snacks and the teachers are doing a fabulous job of incorporating nutrition education 7
into the day! Remember to print the menu off and keep it handy. It is a great nutrition education piece to use at home by asking your child about the fruit or veggie snack they had each day. Thanks to all for making this program so successful!

Tasty and Healthy Snacks
As a parent of teenagers, I understand how important it is for them to have enough energy to compete in athletics after school. As a nutritionist, I understand that the noon meal, which is served between 11:30 and 12:30, does not sustain them, or would it sustain any growing teenager, until 6:00 PM when practice is done. That said, I have put together a list of healthy and tasty snack ideas that you can send with your child; the handout is attached to this newsletter or can be found on our website. Our school does have a la carte options available for kids to purchase and keep for a healthy after school snack. We also have vending machines that are available 24/7 for kids to purchase healthy food items. In addition to being able to purchase food items, our Jr. High students receive a free afternoon fruit or veggie snack some days each week which may give them a little boost.

Calling System / Listserv
I can’t believe I am even discussing the calling system anymore but since it is March 22nd and school was just shut down again due to weather, the calling system is still being used. If you are not receiving school calls or would like to add additional phone numbers to the list, please email me at the address below. In addition, we also send out important school correspondence all year long over the listservs. If you are not getting email that you think you should or would like another email added to a list, please let me know.

Adults: It is important that adults also stay up to date on their vaccines such as Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) not only to protect themselves, but also to protect others. For more information please contact City-County Health District @ 845-8518 or stop by the office in the Barnes County Courthouse.
Immunization Reminders

For those that didn’t get registered for the school clinic and still wish to receive the vaccine, it is also available at City-County Health District’s office in the courthouse. The HPV vaccine is a recommended vaccine for this age group, if they have not already received the vaccine series. Depending on the individual, there may be additional vaccinations that are recommended. 6th Grade Students: School immunization requirements for 7th grade entry include the following vaccines -- Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) and meningococcal meningitis. These vaccines are to be completed before the first day of school in the fall. The HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine series, which was also offered at the school clinic, is a recommended for those in this age group. The second clinic for the HPV vaccine will be held Thursday, May 16th. For those that did not sign up for the school clinic or have not already received their vaccinations, they are also offered at City-County Health District’s office in the courthouse. Depending on the individual, there may be additional vaccinations that are recommended. Senior Students: Two doses of the meningococcal meningitis vaccine (or at least one dose after the age of 16) are required for entry into North Dakota colleges. In addition the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine is recommended for those 11-26 years of age, who have not already received the vaccine. Depending on the individual, there may be additional vaccinations that are recommended. Children Entering Kindergarten: School entry requirements include immunizations that are to be given before the first day of school in the fall. Most children require an updating of their DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis), polio, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) and varicella (chickenpox) vaccines, if they have not recently had them.
The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. Henry Van Dyk
