PV, SWG SchoolBoards attend jointsession on Oct. 28 Visioning meeting. . .  The SWG and PV SIAC members are all invited to a “joint” (shared) School Improve-ment Advisory Committee meeting (SIAC) on Tuesday, Oct. 28, at Hidden Acres near Dayton. Both districts will have their own SIAC team, but for our initial meeting, the Adminis-tration and Board of Educations believe it would be an excellent idea to get both district’s SIAC’s together for a “visioning” meeting, considering all the new transitions, challenges, and so forth. “It’s important for us to move forward with Southeast Valley School action planning and in doing so; we hope to set a positive tone for good cooperation, excellent communica-tion and meaningful collaboration and dialogue for the 2014-15 school year,” said SWG school Supt. Rich Stoffers. “It is our hope you will join us on Oc-tober 28 for a light meal and discussion on the vision for our schools. There will be approxi-mately 50 individuals representing approxi-mately 16 communities in the area,” he stated. In addition to your participation, we welcome additional participants for the meeting on the 28th. If you have a friend, neighbor, or relative that would like to be part of this plan-ning, please let me know soon. There will be a light meal provided Oct. 28 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. The program will in-clude Creating a Vision for the Future. What should be happening in our Schools - 5 years, 10 year? What would students be doing? Teach-ers? Parents? There is an academic sub committee; culture/climate subcommittee; and study sub-committee. Each of these groups will elect co-chairs before dismissal.

She also works as a bookkeeper for Streit Construction. Amy Maguire serves as an assistant manager at the rink, and Denise emphasizes that her devotion and work ethic are indispensable to keeping the rink going. All involved in man-agement of the rink identify this as a very time-consuming commitment, but they wouldn’t have it any other way. The chance to be involved in the rink al-lows those in charge to assume many different hats—from counselor, lending an ear to the dra-ma that is middle school life, to a nurse, tending to scrapes and bruises. Additionally, just discovering someone mastering the art of skating is a joy to behold. Denise describes how she will sometimes watch a rst-timer struggle their rst few laps around the rink. She says she can tell how hard theyare concentrating from the scrunched up lookon their face. With time, and practice, and often a few spills, their facial features soften, and asmile appears. She says this is the moment thather work becomes so rewarding. “Look at me! I can do this!” says De-nise, modeling the delighted expression worn by skating newbies. “I just love watching themget their feet under them.” She explains that not all persons enjoy- ing the rink are children. There is a 78 year old who frequents the rink every Saturday night without fail. Additionally the rink is host tomany events drawing a wide variety of age groups and abilities. The Wheels of GYC hosts birthday par-ties and private parties throughout the week.Also, schools, 4-H, scouts, and churches rent out the rink as well. In addition, every other Saturday the rink is available for a women’sonly skate. Though the evenings are not for-mally named, Fridays are frequented by teenag-ers, while Saturday is often viewed as family time. The sound system has improved in re-cent years with the addition of a laptop.

Mrs. Connie Willits presented to the group and rst asked the staffs to respond to the following items: What is the last EM lesson you complet-ed? What is your biggest EM success so far? What is your biggest EM challenge so far? Name one method of assessment that you integrate in your classroom while using EM. The staffs then shared their greatest Everyday Math success with the group. Af-ter that, the grade level groups staff wrote out their greatest challenge(s) on a sticky note and placed them in one of the following categories: lessons, pacing, assessments, games, or miscel-laneous. Each of the challenges (and possible answers/solutions to those challenges) were dis-cussed at various points, during the day. The staffs were then given the Everyday Math Pacing Guide, which is a guide to how far along they should be at the beginning and end of each month of the school year. All found that they were progressing through the curriculum as expected. The group then moved on to discussions about assessment and differentiation. They were presented with a booklet that made the assessment process more accessible for grading purposes. The use of Recognizing Student Achievement (RSA) Checklists in each building was then discussed. Ideas were shared in re-gards to how the RSA’s applied to the general education, Title I, and Special Education settings. Just prior to lunch the grade level teachers had to look at the way Al-gorithms are taught in the Teacher Ref-erence Manual, and then they had to “teach” an Algorithm to the whole group. Through this activity, the teachers gained a better understand-ing of the EM Algo-rithms that they will be teaching to their students later in the year. After lunch, the teachers went into two break-out sessions. The Kin-dergarten through Second Grade teach- ers met rst with the trainer learning the grade appropriate PV, SWG elementary teaching staffs meet to discuss math, reading progress  Every Day math follow-up training. . . aspects of the eSuites Deluxe (the online EM package). The online portion focused on the Virtu-al Learning Community, which is an online tool with many, many resources that will assist with differentiating instruction in the general educa-tion, Title I, and Special Education settings. This resource gives the teachers cor-responding activities that are matched to the lesson goals, but are written at a lower level for struggling students. The Third and Fourth Grade teachers met to discuss pacing and plan-ning then the two groups then switched ses-sions. The day ended with a self-reection sheet that had 25 items related to EM and its implementation. The teachers then marked items that they are fully implementing with a star and items that they could work on with a circle. This gave the teachers a visual guide to assist them in improving their instruction. The Early Childhood staffs from both buildings met to input their data for Gold Strat-egies and to collaborate. In the afternoon, the Early Childhood staff met with Mr. Grandeld to discuss their Annual Cake Walk Fundraiser. Finally, the Title I Reading staffs got together to work on building the Intervention Bank to be used in conjunction with the Iowa Tier/FAST assessments, and to plan out the schedule for the Progress Monitoring piece of the FAST assessments. The Elementary PE and Music staff went on visitations to other districts, with the rest of the 5-12 staffs from Southeast Valley. Mrs. Doud spent the day visiting her colleagues at Woodside Elementary in Ankeny, and Mrs. Scott spent the day visiting her colleagues the MNW Elementary at Barnum.

The Gaels defeated the Jaguars 35-6.  St. Eds capitalized on three Jaguar turn -overs in the fourth quarter, scoring three touch-downs in about four minutes of play. “Our Coaches are very happy to play the ranked third Gaels to that close of a game but then to lose like we did really hurts,” said coach Mike Swieter. “We wanted to show people how good of a game we gave them but now everyone will just see the nal score. Swieter concluded, “We must learn from this game and work hard to become a team like they have. The Gaels have only lost one game in two years and that was the State Champion-ship last year.”  Both teams struggled to score in the rst quarter as both defenses showed their skills and ended the rst quarter 0-0. At the end of the rst half the score was 0-14. The Gaels scored two touchdowns in the second quarter and the Jaguars rallied to score a touchdown. Southeast Valley scored a touch-down and only trailed 14-6 going into the fourth quarter, it was anyone’s game. In the fourth quarter the Gaels capital- ized on two interceptions and one fumble, scor - ing on some big plays. In a ash the Gaels had a comfortable lead. “We need the kids to move on because Clarinda is coming to town and this is a huge game,” asserted Swieter. “With a Jag’s win there will be a three way tie for rst and all three will be district champions.” Highlights  Quarterback Myles Davis was 14-24 for 99 yards. His quarterback rating was 81.7 and he threw a 12 yard touchdown pass to Cade King. Keaton Jondle led the rushing attack with 42 yards on ve attempts. Cade King had 46 receiving yards including a touchdown. Shane Promes and Keaton Jondle led in solo tackles with four and Owen Oeltjenbruns led in assisted tackles with eight. Sophomore Tristan Ewing had two fum-ble recoveries. Third-ranked Gaels prevail over Jags;game close until disastrous 4th quarter SV can win district championship. . .
