Parents' Corner

As we head into winter and spend more time inside, the flu season pays us a visit. Flu is a layman term for the influenza viral infection. The virus is transmitted by coughing, sneezing, contact with used tissues or contaminated hands and objects. The symptoms of influenza include:


  • Fever with a body temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or more
  • Common respiratory problems such as cold and cough
  • Congestion and runny nose
  • Headache accompanied by muscle pain
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Chills and fatigue

Prevention can be your best defense. Teach your child proper coughing and sneezing etiquette by using the inside of your elbow instead of thier hand. Encourage proper disposal of tissues. Keep hands away from the face area. Frequent hand washing can also be helpful to decrease the spread of infection. Stay home when you are ill, get plenty of rest and eat a balanced diet. Talk with your medical provider or health department and consider receiving the influenza vaccine to help prevent infections.

 

 

Stay well and carry on!

The Twin Hills faculty and staff.

no school 11/20-11/24

We have no school the week of 11/20-11/24, school resumes 11/27 and will be a purple day. We hope you all have a safe, happy, healthy week off.

Digital Citizenship program starts this month

This month, teacher Therese LaLonde and school counselor, Hannah Goldman will be collaborating to teach a digital citizenship program for all grades with the goal of fostering positive online behavior for students in the digital age. And you may ask, what is digital citizenship? Digital citizenship generally refers to the behaviors, choices, and ethics a person applies when using technology. A more formal definition is presented in California's Education Code:

 

"An understanding of the ethical, legal, and safe use of information and technology.Respect for copyright, intellectual property, and the appropriate documentation of sources including the ability to differentiate between legal and illegal uses of information and sources so that students learn to apply responsible research practices. An awareness of local and global societal issues and responsibilities in an evolving digital culture, digital etiquette, and responsible social interactions related to the use of technology and information."

 

As educators, we recognize the need to teach children about this as we see young people spending increasing amounts of time using the Internet and social media. State and federal law makers have passed legislation requiring that public schools with  Internet access provide students with a digital citizenship learning curriculum. Now that we are developing a greater understanding of what digital citizenship is, the next step is to provide age-appropriate learning activities tailored to the needs of each classroom. 

 


"The notion of 'digital citizenship' is so messy. All the more reason educators have to be in on these conversations with students."

- Tweet by George Couros, author of "The Innovator's Mindset"

Latest test scores show improvements


 

Student assessment test results are out, with parents and teachers across Sonoma County poring over data that indicates how well their schools are doing in teaching math and language arts.  In west county school districts, most elementary and middle schools improved or generally maintained their already-above-state-average scores.

 

A few, like Twin Hills Charter Middle School, saw their scores soar over last year’s results, increasing by more than 13 percent the number of sixth through eighth graders who met or exceed English standards and by more than 12 percent the number who met or exceeded math standards.

From Hot Plate to Chef's Kitchen

"Today’s lesson for young teens might be executing a chicken broccoli recipe using different cooking methods of sauté, roasting, baking and frying. Next week’s lesson might be making gingerbread houses from scratch and topping them with colorful sweet treats to devour.

That’s the way cooking class goes at Twin Hills Charter Middle School where a new elective program enables students to baste, boil and blend an array of scrumptious meals."
