Lunchtime Walking Club is on the way!

Beginning Wednesday April 15th, every M-W-F at 11-12 lunch recess the kids will be given the opportunity to put on their walking shoes and earn some bling! The kids loved this in the fall and are anxious to get back out there. When they come out before and/or after eating lunch, they grab their WC card from their class’s pouch, grab a friend and start walking! For each trip around the field, they get a check mark on their card. For every four laps, they’ve walked a mile and can pick out a colorful foot pendant for their WC chain necklace that they earned with their first mile. The kids are really proud of their accomplishments, and their brains and body are ready for the second half of the day! This is such a great program that is sponsored by the Wickliffe PTO.

We need volunteers to make it happen! It’s easy set-up and really enjoyable. Please consider spending your mid-day with the kids. Sign up with a friend! Please contact Karen Robertson at smutexas@yahoo.com or 614-486-3053 if you are interested and would like to know more.

Wickliffe Wellness: Walking Wednesdays

wc3HAPPY SPRING WICKLIFFE WALKERS!!

Spring break is over and hopefully spring is actually arriving in Upper Arlington. With that, Walking Wednesdays are finally back! If you are not familiar with WW it’s very easy! Over the next week your child should be receiving a Walking Passport. Please put your name on the back and attach it to their backpack. Each Wednesday through May 27 all you have to do is walk or bike to school and have your passport punched in one of three locations. 1. the corner of Wickliffe and Cimmaron 2. by the back door or 3. by the front door of the school. I realize that some of you live outside the walking distance of the school. There are lots of families that drop their kiddos at Fancyburg and walk from there so please come and join us. If you have another location that you like to walk from, let us know so we can have a group coming from another direction. Walking Wednesdays are part of an effort to promote health and wellness but it is a great way to help out with cutting down on traffic around the school and improving safety which has been an issue lately. So let’s take off our winter boots and lace up our sneakers and get walking on Wednesdays!

To make sure that WW runs smoothly I need some volunteers each week to cover the three locations and punch cards. It is just a short 15 min from 8:00 to 8:15. Please sign up here if you would like to help out.

To sign up, go to:

Wickliffe Wellness: Spring Guidance Classes

children_at_playWith spring break right over, the Guidance Team are gearing up for four new lunch groups. Through Felice Kassoy’s years of experience offering these opportunities (and supported by the research literature)  She knows that there are positive outcomes for children with common life experiences to find support in a group experience.

Please find the list and a brief description of each spring offering below. At the end of this letter is a permission slip to consent for your child’s participation in any of these groups.

Worry Warriors

Anxiety is a helpful part of our biological make-up. But metaphorically speaking, some children have a hard time distinguishing between a “paper tiger” and a “real tiger.” When anxiety begins to interfere with daily activities, it is time to take control of our worries instead of them controlling us. This group is for kiddos who need to develop tools for managing their worries.

 

Friday Friends

 

Some children struggle with making and keeping friends. This group will incorporate a mentor/mentee approach to social coaching and strengthening the prosocial skills that underlie successful friendships. This group will be designed and led by Erika Andrews, my practicum student from Northern State University in South Dakota.

 

Gender Creative Kids

 

This group is designed for gender non-conforming kiddos who’s gender expression doesn’t feel like a perfect match with the their biological sex—they may identify as both genders or don’t feel strongly tied to a gender identity at all. The goal of the group is to give the kids a place to find kindred spirits, get social affirmation, and to experience emotional safety and comfort in being their authentic selves at school.

 

You might wonder, “Isn’t elementary school a little young for this?” Current research is showing that children develop a clear gender identity around age 6 and that it doesn’t always align with their biological sex. This group is about gender identity, which is separate from sexual orientation.

 

Talking about Some Tough Stuff

 

This group is designed to give children a safe place to understand and express feelings about a family member who is ill (or has been in the past). As we know, illness can bring about many changes that can “upset” the balance in the family. Everyone responds differently to try a cope. In this group we will read stories, participate in activities, use art, and create personal journals to help these children find their voice for talking about the illness and family dynamics at this time.

 

As always, If you have any questions about these groups…please feel free to call Felice Kassoy or e-mail her (487-5150 or fkassoy@uaschools.org).

 

Felice Kassoy, School Counselor

Katie Monda, OSU Counseling Intern

UACA Golden Apple Awards

ga1It is that time again for the Golden Apple Awards! Nominations for teachers, administrators and staff are currently being accepted through March 31, 2015.

Nominate your Wickliffe favorite teacher HEREhttp://directors1933.uaca.org/wordpress/events/golden-apple-awards/nominations/

Wickliffe Wellness – Jump Rope For Heart

ahaWe are thrilled to be supporting the American Heart Association to help teach our students and families how to take care of their hearts through the Jump Rope For Heart program. What does your child get out of participating?
YOUR CHILD learns about the importance of the heart—how it works, and how to take care of it: With the educational programs from the American Heart Association, our students learn how the heart works, how exercise affects their hearts and how to stay FIT FOR LIFE! Approximately 80 percent of the funds raised go directly to the mission, funding extensive research efforts, heart education and programs to help us all live healthier lives.
jrhYOUR CHILD reaches out to friends and family: The safe online tool makes it easy for your child to set up a web page and send emails to support their fundraising efforts and to share life-saving information. The new app for smartphones also makes it easy for your student to text friends and family to join their campaign to be a heart hero. When your kids talk about their reasons for participating (such as a lost loved one or a family history of heart disease), it helps them connect the dots to a healthier life (and might even inspire a few other family members).
YOUR CHILD feels good for making a difference in people’s lives! Funds raised support the heart association’s research and education initiatives that save lives in our community. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans and more people die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. The American Heart Association is second only to the U.S. government in funding research in heart disease and stroke. Additionally, the school earns money for PE equipment so we can keep our kids MOVING!
We hope you are as excited as we are to support our students in this important experience. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please let me know. Visit www.heart.org/jump to get started today!

Upcoming Events at Wickliffe

image1Dear Wickliffe Community,
I hope you are enjoying the wonders of this white Ohio winter and our unexpected time off.

Although it looks calm and quiet, it is actually a very exciting and busy time at Wickliffe. Many important opportunities are unfolding, all before Spring Break! So get out your calendar & prepare to be a part of these exciting Wickliffe events.

Wickliffe Kindergarten Information Meeting 
February 26th @ 6:45
Staff will gather in the gym for an informal presentation on our Wickliffe program. 

UA District Informal Program Information 
March 3rd @ 6:30
Barrington & Wickliffe staff will gather in the Barrington Elementary school cafeteria. If you have ever wondered “How is Informal different from the other programs?” This would be a great meeting to attend. 

Informal Affair Wrap up & 2015 Pass Off
March 4th @ 6:30
The Daily Growler (2812 Fishinger Rd, Upper Arlington, OH 43221)
We will celebrate our hard work & prepare for a successful 2015 Informal Affair. This is a great meeting to attend if you have ever wanted to get involved with the IA process. We will even feed you Donato’s Pizza! Bring a friend, you will need a break after all of these snow day

Block Party
March 12th @ 6:00
As a community we will gather for a brief general PTO meeting and then explore the benefits of Block Play. Our Wickliffe staff will guide us through recent studies & plans to incorporate blocks into every classroom. We plan to facilitate & discuss much like the evening we watched August to June. 

Things To do On A Snowy Day:

  • Make a snow man or a snow castle or monster even! Send us a picture and we will post it for others to see!
  • Go sledding. Scioto River, near the Fishinger bridge has great runs & you can get a hot cocoa at Colin’s Coffee afterwards to warm up!
  • Grab a book! Get lost in the pages!
  • Bake with the kids!
  • Have a snow ball fight. Have you seen those snowball molds that make 8 at a time? Whoa!?
  • Play Monopoly or Risk. Both are long board games that are big fun for the family.
  • Snow paint. Put some water and food coloring in squirt bottles and become a snow Picasso.
  • Pick a trilogy & expose your children to some of the classics.
  • Make pizza together!
  • Do crossword puzzles.
  • Make a family calendar. Put all of the important Wickliffe dates on it!
  • Take a nap.
  • Help a neighbor shovel snow. Very good karma, who knows you could need the help one day.
  • Catch snow flakes on black paper. No two are alike!

 

Stay Warm,

Cat Hiller

Classroom News: Blocks Rock!

Those who attended the Informal Affair may have seen information on the upcoming Wickliffe PTO Block Party fundraiser.  The goal is to provide a set of blocks for each Wickliffe classroom. But why blocks?

Blocks aren’t just for preschool anymore. Research shows significant learning benefits of block play for children throughout elementary school and beyond. This was demonstrated in a “Keva City” project that organically emerged at recess in Mrs. Giles second and third grade class this fall.

POWER WOLVES NEEDS YOU!!!

pwLogo_earth-smallPower Wolves are Wickliffe volunteers that change the world through service projects.  The Power Wolves logged about 120 service hours last year. Last year our wolves;

  • Sent a batch of 30 thank you cards to veterans and soldiers.
  • Made 150 cat toys for Cat Welfare. Visited the cats and played with them with the toys that were created.
  • Made posters for Wickliffe Goes Global campaign.
  • Raised $124 at bake sale at Spring Celebration. Proceeds were donated to World Wildlife Fund for the symbolic adoption of a Snow Leopard.
  • Raised $520 at the Roll-a-thon for the Red Cross for victims of hurricane Sandy.

Wickliffe PTO is looking for a few dedicated, parent volunteers that can lead this group.  Meetings are typically held from 3-4pm in the teacher’s lounge in March, April, and May.  Please contact wickliffepto@gmail.com if you can help.

Our goal is to complete 3-5 projects and connect members with other volunteer opportunities at Wickliffe.

PTO School Directory

ptodirHave you been looking for the PTO Directory in your kid’s backpack? Here are some reasons that it hasn’t been published:

  • In order to comply with FERPA (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), the Wickliffe PTO can not get class lists or some contact informaton from the teachers, the administration, or the school district.  Government officials (at both the State and Federal levels) have crafted laws that put local school districts in legal peril if they give us your information and we publish it (even with your permission).
  • Wickliffe PTO hasn’t found enough people resources to finish the directory.  We have asked for volunteers (via this website and Facebook), but no one has stepped up to help finish the process of formatting and coordinating with a printer.

Wickliffe PTO volunteers have obtained advertisers and cobbled a lot of your information from other sources, so if you have unyoking of desktop publishing experience and are interested in putting the Wickliffe PTO directory together and joining a great bunch of volunteers (that are passionate and already helping out with many Wickliffe PTO activities), please email wickliffepto@gmail.com.

Thanks,
Wickliffe PTO
