CHEC COLLEGE APPLICATION WORKSHOPS HAVE BEGUN
MARIA TUKEVA’S (MT) MESSAGE:
CSP FOCUS - ENGAGEMENT

CHEC Mission Connection for this week – "School staff and leaders build adequate bridges between school and family and between diverse groups of stakeholders who have a voice in school decisions, policies and practices."

CHEC Mission Alignment
Restorative practices are the foundation of our school climate, as we enhance relationships and build community. As lifelong learners in the pursuit of excellence and innovation, we foster a growth mindset through which teachers, administrators, students, parents, and community members all collaborate to achieve goals.

On this Friday, we have the opportunity to make great progress in our CSP Engagement Goals.  Our goals for parent engagement this year are:

  • Increase Parent attendance at Parent Teacher Conference days to an average of 50% of the parents at each Parent Teacher Conference Day by the end of the school year.
  • Increase the percentage of parents attending at least one portfolio presentation a year to at least 30% by arranging for portfolio presentations at different times and places.
  • Increase overall Parent Satisfaction to 87% by Spring 2019; increase parent response to question, “I know what my child is learning at school,” from 77% to 85%.

What will it look like on Friday if we are making progress towards these goals? In terms of attendance our goal is to have 700 parents or family members in attendance.  Having parents there, we can encourage them to attend portfolio presentations on October 29 and 30.  This can be done by showing parents how interesting the projects are, and how their presence will encourage their child to do his or her best.  It is also important to be able to show parents their child’s work, and how they are meeting the standards, or where they need to improve. Data on test scores, focus areas, and other assessments are also important to share, along with strategies for how parents can work with their children to help them improve.  Please remind parents of the tutoring we have available after school and on Saturdays.

You can also use this opportunity to have parents sign up for a home visit – personal contact is the most  effective way to develop our partnership with parents.  If you need translation during the Parent Teacher Conference Day, you can ask for one of the student volunteers at the event, or use the Language Line, which is always available.

Have a great Parent Teacher Conference Day, and let’s engage our parents in our instructional program!

INSTRUCTION:
LEILANI HERNANDEZ SHARES HER WORK AT THE FRENCH EDUCATOR VISIT
This is week 7 of the First Advisory, and by now, students should be fully engaged in their second GRASPS.  The GRASPS is not separate from the content being taught, it is the performance task that centers all instruction.  Some strategies to integrate the GRASPS with your daily instruction include:

  • Pick the component of the standard you are going to teach

  • Make a connection with a part of the GRASPS – break the GRASPS down into parts or mini tasks and teach the standard through those parts or tasks. For example, if you are targeting the standard W.1, Writing Arguments, teach the concept of introducing a claim through the writing prompt you are working on in your GRASPS.  In this way, students will be applying the new concept or skills to a product they are accountable for. Application is the most effective way to teach for transfer.

The CHEC 7 are powerful literacy strategies that can ensure that students are engaged in a rigorous classroom experience.  Please see your department chair or SLC administrator if you would like to see any of the strategies in action.

The Impact observation Window opened October 1.  This week assistant principals will continue calibration observations in classrooms, in order to calibrate the use of the EP rubric.  If you would like to go on an EP calibration walk with an assistant principal or principal, please let your SLC administrator know! Or, if you would like to have colleagues visit your class and provide feedback, please also reach out. If you would like an informal observation, please also contact your Impact Observer, SLC administrator, or LEAP Lead.


INSTRUCTIONAL CALENDAR
The Instructional Calendar is a living document that houses all of the major curricular requirements, assessments, and schoolwide events.  Please check it weekly, as it changes as events are added or moved. The calendar is curated by members of the Admin team, and Mr. Magee, Science LEAP lead, curates and adds events or items that are submitted by Department Chairs.  If you have an event or item that you think should be added to the Instructional Calendar, please submit it to your Department Chairperson first, and then your Department Chair will submit for inclusion if appropriate. Please note a change – the ALT meeting was originally scheduled for Friday October, 5, but since we just met last week, it has been changed until Thursday, October 10 at 7:30 am (Friday is Parent Teacher Conference Day).

ACADEMIC LEADERSHIP TEAM

The Academic Leadership Team (ALT) consists of all administrators, LEAP leads, Department Chairs, and any interested faculty or staff.  Meetings are held twice a month, alternating between Early Release Days and morning meetings.  The ALT team designs and monitors the Comprehensive School Plan.  All are welcome to attend, either for one meeting or for all.  At the last ALT meeting on September 25, the team did a deep dive into the CSP, and prepared to present a summary of the CSP to all staff, at our October Faculty Meeting, and to engage all staff in becoming involved in an area of the CSP that interests them.

The next ALT meeting will be Thursday, October 10 at 7:30 am during which the team will debrief the suggestions of the staff, and begin to review student work and data aligned to our school goals, so that we can monitor progress towards those goals.


CHEC INTERACT CLUB UPDATE

CHEC Interact Club members hosted a Rotary/Rotaract/Interact BBQ on September 21st.   19 students participated, some Interact members and prospective members.  Students got to interact with Rotary and Rotaract members, played capture the flag with the college and foreign exchange students, and ate lots of food. The BBQ was at Hanes Point.



Our next service event is this Saturday with Generation Hope. We will be helping sort and pack care packages for teen parents.

Thank you to Dr. Barnett and Mr. Molina for helping pave the way for this event to happen.
 
 
Thank you Mr. Pankaj and Mr. Best for helping with logistics and a huge thank you to the custodial staff who helped us set up and clean up.
 
 
A huge thanks to Mr. Aguilar! Without his help the Dance would not have been such a success. He was the creator behind our photo booth, worked tirelessly on our LATINX letters, and helped students set up during 4th period. Most importantly, he was an amazing hype man and got all the students to the dance floor. He might have found a new calling as a Quinceanera MC.

Thank you to all the chaperones! Mr. Caceres, Mr. Alvarado, Mr. Lopez, Mr. Arabian, Mr. Aguilar, Ms. Emilius, Ms. Ermis (and family), Mr. Diaz, Mr. Talarico, Ms. Ferguson, Ms. Avila, Ms. Iraheta (and girls), and Mr. Galvan. You all helped keep our dance safe for all our students. I apologize if Mr. Aguilar forced you into the dance battle without your consent.

Even though they are not on this email thread, my Algebra students really showed up and put in work to make this celebration happen. They helped set up and stayed till the very end to help clean up. If you see any of these students in the hallway, make sure to give them a thank you on my behalf:

  • Chanae Williams
  • Veronica Miller
  • Maleah Daniels
  • Perla Guzman
  • Eisler Romero
  • Kaylin Guandique
  • Brandon Thompkins
  • Marlena Honesty
  • Jaylien Petway
  • Warren Hale
  • Josselin Ardon
  • Yenifer Moreno
  • Gladis Giron
  • Santos Ramirez
  • Calvin Armstrong
  • Francisco Hernandez
  • Michael Spear (not my student but randomly showed up and started helping out)

Again, a huge thanks to everyone for supporting this event. You are all helping our LULAC members become amazing leaders in our school community.

Jessika Alvarado

DONORS CHOOSE 2019-2020
Donors Choose is a great resource for all teachers. You can receive a mini grant to support a special project or initiative.  Please see some of our recent Donors Choose grantees! You can reach out to them for support in obtaining your own grant!
 
MS. LESNIEWICZ AND DONORSCHOOSE.ORG
Ms. Lesniewicz had her classroom project "AP Psychology Textbooks" recently funded by Donors Choose.  The resources for this project include:

  • Myers' Psychology for the Ap(r) Course x 10

MY PROJECT
Right now, my students are using a combination of textbooks and photocopies to facilitate their learning. Last year, we had 11 students enrolled in the course. At the beginning of the year, there were 13 students signed up for the course. Fortunately, the enrollment jumped to 24. Unfortunately, we only have 15 textbooks.  With each passing test score, students from our Title I school could earn the equivalent of thousands of dollars in scholarship money at their chosen university.

We want to continue that success with over twice as many students compared to last year and give them the opportunity to achieve passing scores on the exam. With each passing score, students will be closer to achieving their goal of a college diploma and will be strapped with less debt. These textbooks will help them get to that passing score.


EXCITING OPPORTUNITY FROM THE PHILLIPS COLLECTION FOR CHEC TEACHERS

The Phillips Collection is offering an arts integration course, in collaboration with University of Maryland, for teachers to learn about and practice integrating the arts in their classroom. The hybrid-learning course will take place both at the Phillips and online, and will begin on Thursday, October 17. Teachers receive 3 continuing education units (CEU)/45 professional development hours for the course (or graduate credit through UMD).

The attached flyer explains an overview of the course - all grade levels and subjects are welcome.

Teachers can feel free to email me directly by Friday, October 11, if they have questions about or would like to register for the course.

All the best,

COLLEGE ACCESS TUTORING FOR SENIORS
Curran Chopra and Akshar Patel are forming a team of volunteers who plan to tutor seniors for all aspect of college applications and college access during this fall.  Presently, they are recruiting a cohort of college student volunteers from Howard University, Trinity Washington University, American University and Georgetown.

Mr. Chopra began this project the DC Learn and Serve program, to provide low-income DC high school students with the resources, motivation, and mentorship to perform to their capabilities on standardized testing required for college and navigate through the college application process.  His vision is to connect undergraduate students with high school juniors so the college students who have the experience of taking the SAT/ACT and applying to college can offer their expertise and knowledge to their younger peers.



COLLEGE APPLICATION WORKSHOPS

Students: 25 to 30 students

Volunteer Duties: Volunteers will provide essay writing support – Common App Essays – helping decide structure, students have stories to share but need help capturing stories in an essay.

Additional Info: There is no need for curriculum/books, but college student volunteers will bring their applications, essays to share with students. A collection of sample Common App and supplemental essays will be provided.

BELL LIBRARY UPDATE
I already see this being one of the most incredible school years, yet!   The CHEC/ Bell High School Library would love to invite teachers and staff to reserve library space (check out the pictures) via our reservation platform, Skedda (https://reservechecbelllibrary.skedda.com/booking). Once booking your first reservation you will be prompted to create a quick login.  Users will be able to see when space is available and when space is unavailable.  This will allow for transparency and comfort in knowing that the time that you have requested, is available.  There is also a space for *notes.  If you would like to request AV material (i.e. projector) I can have that available and set-up for you.   The first space is the main library and the second space is Peace & Love Room/ Makerspace.  

We have some amazing things planned for the 2019-2020 school year! Please check out the Bell Library Website with new programming, resources for students and parents and new faculty webinars.  

In our Nations Capital and all over the world we have literary deserts that have prevented many from exploring the beauty of equitable literacy.  I had the pleasure of being a part of a Summer Curriculum Development Institute at CHEC taught by Mr. Darry Strickland.  Each participant developed a UbD (Understanding by Design), a framework used to improve student achievement.  Because of the amazing feedback from all involved in the institute and students as well as new teachers, Bell Library's finished project is Building Through Community Relationships: Providing Opportunities to Literary Deserts.  We have developed a new partnership with Christ House, a medical facility with "comprehensive and compassionate health care to sick, homeless persons in the District of Columbia, and to assist them in addressing critical issues to help break the cycle of homelessness." (christhouse.org)

The Bell Library along with students and educators will replenish their living room library and create a library in their 52-bed residence known as Kairos.  "The Kairos Program participants are capable of living independently, but due to chronic illness, are unable to hold full-time employment. Volunteer service is a key element of the program and each member serves based on his gifts and abilities. They escort Christ House patients to medical appointments, staff the clothing room, work in the kitchen, and assist with mailings and other administrative activities. Some participants also work part-time jobs at Christ House or in the neighborhood." (https://christhouse.org/services-2/kairos-program/)  Students will complete empathetic interviews and create a collection that will be sure to rival University of Michigan's- Cook Research Library.  If you are interested in helping expand and create a library, please reach out to me!

DCPL Educator Cards will be in within the next few weeks.  For new educators or educators who would like a new card, please email me.

I look forward to seeing you soon for a library tour and, serving you well.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call, email or drop by the library- A205!

BEHAVIOR REFERRAL LINK
Below is the Google Survey/Referral link that the entire CHEC school community will be using to send behavior referrals. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to your appropriate Dean directly.

High School - Dean Boone - dewayne.boone@k12.dc.gov
Middle School - Dean Avila - kathrine.avila@k12.dc.gov

Student Culture Intervention Form - Behavior Referral: Please use this link to send any behavior concerns after using the 5-step discipline process and any care system you have in place to support your student's social-emotional learning. You may also use this link to bring to the Dean's attention the need for a restorative circle and/or when students are tardy to your class more than three times. The Dean Team will actively monitor this live document to support all teachers.


REMINDERS

Students that are Out-of-Area  
During the past school year, we noticed a pattern of middle and high school students wandering into the wrong school. For this new year, please be mindful that Middle School students should not be in the High School at all, and certainly not without a pass. High School students should only be in the Middle School on the Lincoln 3rd floor. The route for High School students to the 3rd floor Lincoln is through the Bell 2nd floor and on to Lincoln 2nd floor landing and up the stairs to the 3rd floor.  They should not use the 1st or 2nd floor Lincoln to get to the 3rd floor Lincoln. Students that are not complying should be written a referral, so they can earn a consequence.

Detention
Detention is a first intervention we have for students to check and correct their behavior in your classrooms. Students being informed of this consequence is vital to the effectiveness of the consequence.  Remember to use our 5 step process with fidelity so that our students will not earn a greater consequence of ISS and thus lose valuable class time

Dismissal
We always need more support at dismissal from 3:15pm until 3:35pm (High School), 4:15pm until 4:35pm (Middle School). Please follow students all the way out to the front of the building. Students should be encouraged to move on toward their bus stops/metro quickly. Teachers and staff that can make themselves available to stay out front will be greatly appreciated.

Cafeteria Support
All lunches have their ups and their downs. We always appreciate additional supports in the cafeteria on days that teachers are available. Check-ins with students build relationships and adult presence supports our daily procedures in lunch.

WEEKLY SPORTS UPDATE
Athletics are an integral part of the educational program and a means to accomplish the goals of education. Our athletic program exists for the welfare of students and the contributions it makes to their educational experience.  Athletic participation builds self-esteem and confidence and provides the necessary tools for success.  The interaction between individuals on the fields of sport teaches students the value of teamwork, while developing the proper competitive spirit, combined with a sense of fairness.
