READING CHALLENGE

Junior High

 

 

For the past seven years, junior high students have been encouraged to take part in the Winter Break Reading Challenge.  Each student who participates picks out a book that he or she would like to read during break then staff members sign up to read that same book.  After break the students and staff get together to discuss the book they've read.  The reward...an ICE CREAM PARTY!!  This year we had 30 students and 11 staff members read books.  Special thanks to Ms. Cunniff and Mrs. Kelly for organizing this event and gathering (and returning) all the books from various libraries.

PARENT INVOLVEMENT

Pre-Kindergarten thru Eighth Grade (and beyond)

 

 

Education is ever-changing.  Trends come and go.  Standards and policies change.  But there is one thing that has been and always will be important to your children's success....PARENT INVOLVEMENT!

P - Parents aren't perfect and neither are children, but there are perfect moments along the way

A - Allow your children to develop responsibility and independence.  It is a great gift you can give.

R - Read to and with your children.

E - Encourage your children to be and do their best.

N- Notice changes in your children's mood or behavior and talk with them about it.

T - Tell your children you love them.

S - Spend time with your children talking about school, friends, ANYTHING!

 

WIG...Wildly Important Goal

Kindergarten thru Eighth Grade

 

 

Malden Grade School has been fortunate enough to receive a LEAD grant.  This grant focuses on changing teacher behavior for the betterment of the students.  A committee of teachers and staff has been formed, and through several planning meetings we have come up with our first WIG (Wildly Important Goal).

Our WIG statement is:

Teacher planning and prep:  To alter teacher behaviors to improve student confidence in and out of the classroom

The staff as a whole has been working to improve student confidence.  We believe that being confident will help the students not only academically but also in all aspects of their life now and into the future.
