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.

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

Poetry, a song for the soul and a mirror to our hearts.  Our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders participated in a Poetry Out Loud Contest. They were required to memorize and recite an original or published poem. And, oh how terrific they did! Several recited some very long poems and many of our beloved poets were showcased: Shel Silverstein, Maya Angelou and Kenn Nesbitt, to name a few.

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.

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.

Visit our photo gallery for more pictures from our café.
