The Scary Truth

“The bad guy’s not just at the bus stop anymore. He has entrance right into your kid’s bedroom and hand-held cellphone device.” Sexual predators can target your children even when your child is in the room down the hall. And sexual predators aren’t the only problem. Cyber-bullying and exposures to sexually inappropriate content are additional concerns. New apps are constantly being created, so it’s important to monitor what your child downloads. Being aware of the online tricks predators use will help you know what to look for. Click for a current list of some of the most dangerous apps.

How to stay Safe Online…
The internet has become part of our daily lives. In many ways, it makes our lives easier-we can go online to research a school project, to go shopping, or to talk to friends. But the internet can be dangerous too.

Daily Announcements

Ms. Cicero and Mrs. Britske’s class raised butterflies from caterpillars. A month ago twelve tiny caterpillars arrived in our classroom. The children were so excited to watch them move around. They observed them with magnifying glasses. They watched them eat and eat and grow and grow. Before we knew it, they had formed their chrysalises. We patiently waited two weeks for our first butterfly to hatch and dry their wings. The students enjoyed watching the butterflies fly around in the butterfly net. On Wednesday, May 18th we released the butterflies. Most of them were so excited to be free, that they flew away real fast. The children learned a lot about the life cycle of the butterfly.

The Math Committee will be hosting the first annual Math Day Celebrations for students in grades Pre-k -2nd. Students will be rotating through multiple fun and educational math stations where they will practice skills they have learned this year. In addition, they will visit a math craft station to create a fun project to take home with them. 

Pre-K and Kindergarten's Math Day is on May 26th
 1st and 2nd Grade's Math Day is on May 31st. 

Spring Math League for students in grades 3-5 will take place in June. 
The dates are as follows: 3rd grade- June 6th

We are excited for our students in grades 3 to 5, who will participate in the Poetry Out Loud contest. It is an opportunity for students to focus on poetry - well known poems and their own poetry. They will be judged, based on their understanding and performance of the poem. Each grade will have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner. Parents are welcome to attend!   

Family Fun Night!


The Redshaw Parental Involvement Committee celebrated kindergarten mothers on May 10th, 2016 by inviting them to participate in a reading strategies session. Subsequently, parents got to visit their child's classroom and read books to the children while applying the reading strategies they had just practiced.  Teachers and children enjoyed having parents model literacy in the classroom. Please continue reading to your children at home.

Reading Café

Since reading is an essential skill, we not only teach it at A.C. Redshaw School, but we foster a desire to read.  The Reading Café promotes reading for enjoyment. It fulfills part of the balanced literacy model of reading and discussing literature.  We have created a relaxing and serene environment for students to curl up with their favorite books, sip on hot chocolate and escape into the distant world created by the author of their books.
