AUTHOR VISIT WITH JERRY PALLOTTA   On December 14, author Jerry Pallotta will visit Waynesville Elementary. Jerry is an award-winning author of children’s alphabet books. He combines interesting facts, detailed research, humor, and realistic illustrations that children love. Jerry’s first book called, Ocean Alphabet set the path for him. He has since written 30 nonfiction alphabet titles that include Icky Bug Alphabet, Airplane Alphabet, Flower Alphabet and Eyeball Alphabet.    Jerry also brings nonfiction subjects to the field of elementary math in a beautifully illustrated format. His math literacy books count from zero to zillions, in titles such as Underwater Counting Even Numbers, Underwater Counting Odd Numbers, Count to a Million, and Icky Bug Numbers.    Jerry’s newest series, Who Would Win, are fact filled non-fiction books comparing two rivals.  These books are attracting the most reluctant readers! Many of these titles are on the pre- order form.    In his presentations, Jerry discusses writing, researching, working with illustrators, designing, editing and publishing his books.  We are excited to have him come from Massachusetts to speak to our students! We appreciate the B.A.T.S (Bringing Authors to Schools) Organization for helping make this visit possible, and the support of Wayne Local Schools.   Please look for the pre-order forms coming home next week.  Pre-ordering is best so your child can be assured to get the title they want.  Books will be displayed in the Media Center.  All pre-orders are due by November 30, and checks should be made payable to Books ‘N’ More.   Lora Schafer Rainbow Reading Teacher lschafer@wayne-local.com

ART CLUB OUTREACH! EMPTY BOWLS   Student in art club have started their first Annual Empty Bowls outreach, what is Empty Bowls? It is a fundraiser for our art program here at the school and to help fight hunger! Handmade bowls will be sold (with food in them) January 21st at three basketball games to raise funds. A donation will be made investing back into our community to fight hunger. For example to a local food pantry or the Food to Go program we have here at the school could be a beneficiary of the student's choosing to direct the funds.    Students and staff have been coming into the art room for the past month to build/throw and glaze ceramic bowls. We have a goal of 100 bowls and would love to have anyone who is willing to come in and help. Someone from the art department will be after school every Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday to facilitate and help you get involved. It may be that you glaze a bowl that is made or even prep for throwing on the wheel, every bit counts and helps us reach our goal. No role is too small!   We had the high school and middle school student council come in this week and made 13 bowls and glazed 10 in one setting!! It was a great turn out. Thanks Student Council!!    We look forward to seeing even more students and staff get involved in the creative process. And then for everyone to come out on the 21st when we bring out all the hard work!    See you soon! The Art Department Bethany Lamb   blamb@wayne-local.com

MRS. KEETON'S THIRD GRADE MATH   Third Grade Math students did a great job first quarter establishing routine and becoming quite the eager problem solvers.  First quarter was spent on standards that are familiar to students coming from second grade such as addition and subtraction with and without regrouping along with writing numbers in standard, expanded, and written form.  We also worked on our estimating skills by learning a fun "rounding reminder" that the students say they can't get out of their head!   We are now moving on to our units on multiplication and division.   Each week students are expected to complete a weekly homework assignment that consists of various concepts that need to be practiced and revisited.  Students are also completing a weekly fluency practice sheet in which they are timed each night for one minute by an adult, and turned in each Friday.  With Fact Fluency being an Ohio State Standard for Third grade, I’m looking forward to this homework piece being a part in students being successful with this standard this year.   We have been taking most of our regular Math assessments online to better prepare students for the Ohio Air Math Test they will be taking in the Spring on the Computer.  Students are doing a great job getting accustomed to working out the problems on paper and transferring their answers on the computer.  Having students practice this skill as a normal part of their math routine will help familiarize them with the format and feel more comfortable when it comes time to taking the Air test in the Spring.   Everyone loves a little friendly competition and it is no different for our third graders when it comes to our online program First in Math.  This is an awesome online program that helps increase student’s problem solving, critical thinking, and basic math skills in a very fun way.  Students are able to access this program at school and at home as well.   I’d like to give a BIG shout out to the following TOP THIRD GRADERS for earning the most points or stickers for Waynesville Elementary: Rachel Finegan, Grace Royalty, Madeline Kolaczkowski, Evelyn Malcolm, Lori Baker, Katie Berrey, Drew Martini, Ian Byerly, Maggie Stephenson, Brayden Green, Bella Bradley, Raven Pendergraff, Abby Buck, Zevin Sesslar, Addison Russell, Izzy Hardin, Abby Baker, Sylvia Moffitt, Megan Squire, and Tate Manley.   Rachel Finegan is 10th in Ohio for "First in Math" for the 3rd Grade in the State of Ohio!  Congratulations Rachel!    Students and Parents have the opportunity to access our Math textbook online by going to https://www-k6.thinkcentral.com.   Each student has their own personal log in which gives them access to their math textbook as well as their reading book.   This is a great tool to keep updated on weekly math standards taught and also for good reinforcement and review if needed.   Lastly, I send weekly REMIND messages to the parents of my students via text (or email) with assignment due dates and topics that are being covered for the week.    If you are a parent of one of my students who has not yet taken advantage of this communication tool, please email me at skeeton@wayne-local.com.  It is not too late to sign up, and I'd be happy to send you the link and keep you informed.   Mrs. Stacy Keeton skeeton@wayne-local.com Third Grade Math Teacher CHRISTMAS CLUB:   The Christmas Club was started last year as a community service or community outreach opportunity for our young learners. This year, the club is made up of 4th grade students. The club is meeting every Thursday afterschool from 3:35-4:35; Nov. 3rd, 10th, 17th, Dec. 1st, and Dec. 8th. The club goal is to allow students to gather and meet with one another, learn a ‘timeless craft project’, and experience ‘giving’. The students will be making Christmas Care Packages, and decorating table top Christmas Trees to donate to the residents of Quaker Heights. Through generous donations of students’ families, staff and friends we hope to be able to make plenty of presents for these wonderful residents.  We look forward to working with these students, and helping them see the ‘Joy’ of giving. During meeting times, we will enjoy Holiday songs, classical movies, create care packages and decorate small trees to hand deliver to our Quaker Heights residents.   Anna Garafolo -agarafolo@wayne-local.com ; Janelle Gaver- jgaver@wayne-local.com ; Ashten Swank-  aswank@wayne-local.com  

NOTABLE NEWS FROM MRS. GARAFOLO’S 4TH GRADE:   Our 4th grade ELA classroom has many things going on at all times. We attempt to match strategies, materials, and instructional pacing to meet the individual needs of students, as well as making learning accessible and challenging for everyone in the classroom.     Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Journey’s, is the Reading series that we are using this year. This program is a great road map for guiding the direction of student learning.  There are countless resources, materials and supplies embedded in this program.   I want to give a very large ‘Thank you’ to our PTO, Tammy Burchfield, Randy Gebhardt, Nick Jones and Ron James for amazing new technology in our building. Our class has been using laptops, but are now diving into Chrome Books at least 2-3 times a week during independent learning stations, and whole group instruction. Technology is an intricate part in meeting the individual learning needs of the students in our classroom.   The Chrome Books are used during our ELA classroom instruction time within learning stations. Students are on Mr.nussbaum.com; leveled passages from Readworks.com; and most recently brought to our district NEWSELA! We are loving www.newsela.com. This is an amazing website where students are able to read up to date news and articles about happenings all over the world.  Each student has their own account where I can assign articles to read, students can take quizzes over the articles, and we are able to monitor their progress and effort.   Please continue to encourage your children to read. Ask questions and get involved in their reading… one great quote to close:     “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”  ― George R.R. MartinA Dance with Dragons   Anna Garafolo agarafolo@wayne-local.com ART ROOM NEWS

INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL CLOSING FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER   As we head into winter it is very important for parents to have back up plans in place for delays, early dismissals and closures.   We understand that our decision to open or close schools in bad weather has a big effect on families. We also understand that our students are better served by being in school. As always, our top priority is the safety of our students.  We will always try to make our decisions as early as possible.  Your child will feel safer if they know what they are to do in these situations.

WELLNESS WC Combined Health District Newsletter – Nov. 2016 SEASONAL FLU PREVENTION   The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older receive a seasonal flu shot every year; especially those at most risk for complications from the flu.   Keep in mind that there are also everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of viruses that cause respiratory illnesses like the flu.  Take these steps to protect your health:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.  Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze and before eating.  Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you get sick with influenza, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Contact your medical provider if symptoms become severe or worsen.

Additional information about influenza and the flu vaccine may be found at the www.cdc.gov/flu or to schedule an appointment for a flu shot with the Warren County Combined Health District call 513-695-1229.

5 MUST-HAVE APPS TO GET YOU THROUGH COLD AND FLU SEASON Cold and Flu season is upon us and it’s important to be prepared.   According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 5 to 20 percent of the U.S. population will get the Flu annually, while an average of 200,000 Americans will be hospitalized due to problems with the illness. HealthGrove | Graphiq  Experts agree that the best preventative measure you can take is getting the Flu vaccine – but there are other things you and your family, especially the young ones, can do to stay prepared.   Thanks to today’s technology, a slew of Flu-related facts and guidelines could be right at your fingertips.     Below are five cell phone apps that could help you fight the Flu this year.   1. FluView: Courtesy of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, FluView could be considered the “official” flu tracker, allowing you to see how severe flu outbreaks are in your state via color-coded maps, and across the nation, according to Parenting.com. Perfect for traveling!   This app also gives you access to videos and podcasts related to flu-prevention (iOS). 2. Sickweather: This app is similar to FluView in that it gives you a glimpse of illness activity in your general area, though it uses a social media-based approach. By using data from sites like Facebook and Twitter, Sickweather uses people’s posts to give you a real-time understanding of what exactly you’re dealing with in your area, whether it be the flu, the common cold or even pink eye. (iOS, Android). 3. ZocDoc: If your prevention methods fail and you happen to get sick, Zocdoc has you covered. Rather than waiting days for an open appointment, Zocdoc will match you with doctors in your area -- all you have to do is provide some information, such as a reason for your visit and insurance information (iOS, Android). 4. Doctor on Demand: Skip that dreaded doctor’s visit with Doctor on Demand, which allows you to get professional help while in the comfort of your own home. Using a video conference feature, this app connects you to board-certified doctors in your state for just $40 (iOS, Android). 5. Home Remedies+: Maybe you don’t have the full-on flu, but rather a mild cold for which you’d like to ease symptoms in a natural way. The app Home Remedies+ provides a variety of recipes for common ailments, Parenting.com reports. For example, ginger tea for a cold or lemon and honey for a cough. What do you have to lose? (iOS, Android)

GUIDELINES FOR KEEPING CHILDREN HOME FROM SCHOOL DUE TO ILLNESS   It is sometimes difficult to decide when and how long to keep an ill child home from school. The following guidelines represent the more common childhood illnesses.   CHICKEN POX: A skin rash consisting of small blisters, which leave scabs. A slight fever may or may not be present. There may be blisters and scabs all present at the same time. Your child should remain home until all blisters have scabbed over, usually 5-7 days after the appearance of the first crop of blisters. COMMON COLD: Irritated throat, watery discharge from the nose and eyes, sneezing, chills and general body discomfort. Your child should remain home if symptoms are serious enough to interfere with your child’s ability to learn. Medical care should be obtained if symptoms persist beyond 7-10 days, fever develops, or discharge becomes yellow to green. FEVER: If your child’s temperature is 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater (or 1 or 2 degrees above the child’s normal temperature) (s)he should remain home until (s)he has been without fever for a full 24 hours. Remember fever is a symptom indicating the presence of an illness. FLU: Abrupt onset of fever, chills, headache and sore muscles. Runny nose, sore throat, and cough are common. Your child should remain home from school until symptoms are gone and the child is without fever for 24 hours. HEAD LICE: Lice are small grayish-tan, wingless insects that lay eggs called nits. Nits are firmly attached to the hair shafts, close to the scalp. Nits are much easier to see and detect than lice. They are small white specks, which are usually found at the nape of the neck and behind the ears. Following lice infestation, your child may return to school after receiving treatment with a pediculicide shampoo. PAIN: If your child complains, or behavior indicates, that (s)he is experiencing persistent pain, (s)he should be evaluated by a physician before your child is sent to school. PINKEYE: Redness and swelling of the membranes of the eye with burning or itching, yellow or green drainage coming from one or both eyes, or crusts on the eyelids. Your child should remain home from school until receiving 24 hours of antibiotic therapy, as determined by your physician, and discharge from the eyes has stopped. SKIN RASHES: A physician should evaluate skin rashes of unknown origin before your child is sent to school. STREP THROAT AND SCARLET FEVER: Strep throat usually begins with fever, sore and red throat, possibly pus spots on the back of the throat, tender swollen glands of the neck. With scarlet fever there are all the symptoms of strep throat as well as a strawberry appearance to the tongue and rash of the skin. High fever, nausea and vomiting may also occur. Your child should remain home from school until receiving a full 24 hours of antibiotic therapy and until without fever or vomiting for 24 hours. Most physicians will advise rest at home 1-2 days after a strep infection. VOMITING AND DIARRHEA (INTESTINAL VIRAL INFECTIONS): Stomach ache, cramping, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea, possible fever, headache, and body aches. Your child should remain at home until without vomiting, diarrhea or fever for a full 24 hours. If your child has had any of these symptoms during the night, (s)he should not be sent to school the following day.   Jen Royalty jroyalty@wayne-local.com Wayne Local School Nurse *************************************************
