    Digital Citizenship:
    A Conversation You Can't Miss-
    Keeping safe online, without going over the line
    Dr. Tim Conrad, from Ohio State University, will be presenting to parents on November 28, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. at Matthews Auditorium, 150 Viking Way, Cincinnati, OH 45241. This free event is open to the public.
    Conrad will speak with parents about the challenges of keeping their kids safe online. He will offer practical advice and tips on topics including password protection, emoji use and locking devices. He will discuss five new apps that parents should be aware of that children may be using. Conrad’s perspective and professional background provides guidance for parents to take control of their family’s online presence.
    Giving Tuesday: “Change for the Closet
    Everyone knows about Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. But what have you been doing for Giving Tuesday?
    Giving Tuesday, is a global day of giving back. This year it will be celebrated on Tuesday, November 28, 2017. For the first time, all the Princeton City Schools are coming together to raise funds and awareness for one cause that is near and dear to our community, the Princeton Closet. 
    Recently, the Princeton Closet has provided snacks for the football team, helped students at all the buildings with clothing, helped a mother with warmer clothing for her two kids, helped a mom in need in Woodlawn with a $100 Kroger card, helped a family in need in Springdale with food and a $100 Kroger card, helped a PHS student on home instruction with diapers, wipes, and formula, and helped one of our nurses with cleaning supplies and some clothing needs for students. 
    This year, for “Change for the Closest”, any and all coins are welcome, and larger donations are most appreciated and tax deductible.
    Susan Wyder will personally treat the winning room in each building to a special snack.
    The top three classes will also double their impact, because three anonymous donors have agreed to match the donations given that day.
    The “Change for the Closet” will be collected just on Giving Tuesday, but donations of new and gently used clothing, shoes and can goods will be collected in the Fill the Truck boxes the month of December. A portion of the Fill the Truck items will be helping families by donating items to the Princeton Closet. 
    The needs this year seem to be multiplying exponentially, so thank you for considering this!
    A great reason to go to Chipotle for dinner!
    All proceeds from the event will support our Princeton Viking School Based Health Centers located in Princeton's Viking Village and Heritage Hill Elementary. The VSBHCs are convenient for both students and their parents; students are able to receive the medical care and treatment they need on breaks during their school day, missing less class time and their parents don't have to take off work to take them to the doctor.
    Our school based health centers play a pivotal role in increasing access to affordable, quality medical care and keeping students healthy and in school.
    Please mark you calendar and join us for dinner on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 to support The HealthCare Connection and our Viking School Based Health Centers!
    Thanks for your support!

    Principal’s Corner: I am looking forward to seeing all of the families support their students on the fun filled Grand Days next week. I am thankful for all of the supportive families and staff members that are invested in helping Evendale students reach their full potential! Have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving break!
    The Wonderfulness of Wonder : Intermediate students at Evendale have been reading the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio and our primary students have been reading We Are All Wonders . Both books focus on Auggie Pullman, who was born with facial deformities, and follows his first experience in a school setting with peers of his own age. Students have discussed how to best include all students, regardless of differences, and to show kindness in all situations. Our intermediate students are going to be given the opportunity to view the movie “Wonder” on Tuesday, November 21, thanks to a partnership with Kohl’s. We hope that the learning through all of these experiences helps Evendale students to grow and be a part of giving others a reason to smile and a reason to always have hope.
    Staff Spotlight: This week’s staff spotlight is on Mrs. Melissa Brenner. Mrs. Brenner has been teaching in the Princeton City School District for 28 years! Mrs. Brenner’s oldest daughter just went to college and her youngest started high school. Her family loves football and volleyball. Mrs. Brenner has only taught at Evendale in first grade. First grade is her favorite. Mrs. Brenner feels the students make the most growth in reading and math during this year. They are hard workers! Her favorite part about being at Evendale is that she loves to teach students to read! Mrs. Brenner loves the excitement of seeing where they start and finish the year is amazing. The staff of EV works so hard as a team to support all learners. She has worked with so many great families at Evendale!
    Math Night: Who ya Gonna Call?? “Math Masters!” Mark your calendar for Evendale’s upcoming Family Math Night! It is on Wednesday, November 29 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. Our theme is Math Masters, and you don’t want to miss it! Evendale students can grab their Math Master Passport as they enter and visit a variety of hands-on activities and games to practice their math skills. Fun Math games will be raffled off at the end of the night to students who visit at least 3 activity spots on their passport! See you there!
    Evendale Grand Days - November 20 and 21: Grandparents or significant adults of Evendale Elementary School students are cordially invited to visit their student’s classroom and enjoy lunch in the cafeteria during our annual Grand Days.

    Mix It Up Day 2017: Lincoln Heights Elementary School recently celebrated Mix It Up Day. This is a day where schools around the country take the time to encourage their students to “mix it up” at lunch. You might ask, mix what up? Good question. Mix It Up Day was all about getting students to accept others, no matter what their race, gender, or differences may be. Studies have shown that most students say the cafeteria is a place in their school where divisions are seen.
    On Mix It Up Day, students were encouraged to move out of their comfort zone and find someone new to sit with at lunch. The whole point of this day was to make sure everyone was accepted and included. Chances are they found out something new about someone they do not normally sit with and they may even have walked away with a new friend!
    COSI on Wheels:
    The Incredible Human Machine 
    A special shout-out to our GE Volunteers! They sponsored our COSI on Wheels event last week.
    COSI’s Body Mechanic helped students learn about what it takes to keep their body engines in tip-top shape. They also explored the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems, learned about nutrients and how exercise keeps a body healthy.
    Intermediate Math: As we move into the 2nd quarter, 4th grade students are working on multi-digit multiplication. They are learning various strategies to multiply. Students will also being a study of angles soon. 
    The focus in 5th grade is on decimal place value. Students have learned how to compare, order, and round decimals. They are making great progress! Their next skill is to learn multiplication strategies. Students will learn their knowledge of factors and multiples to multiply multi-digit whole numbers and decimals.
    Students at Lincoln Heights Elementary use Xtra Math, TenMarks and Moby Max in the classroom to help learn and master math topics. These tools can be used at home as well!

After we address just a few important agenda items, we would like to recognize our many accomplishments since August and the individuals who have played a role in these successes. Could you please take the time to “nominate” staff, volunteers, and/or students who have shown exceptional leadership? This could be for one of our publicized events or perhaps it was for something subtle “behind the scenes.” Please email your nominations to PFO President, Amy Goohs-Hardman at agoohs-hardman@cinci.rr.com

    Health Notes: Deciding when to keep your child home from school can be difficult. When a child is sick and needs to stay at home, parents should contact the school attendance line to report an absence. It is important for the health of all students, staff, and families that your child is not at school when sick. The timing of the absence is often important in order to decrease the spread of disease to others and to prevent your child from acquiring any other illness while his/her resistance is lowered. The following guidelines represent the more common childhood illnesses. If you are ever in doubt or are not sure whether your child should come to school, feel free to contact Mrs. Hucke at 864-2770.
    • Vomiting and Diarrhea (Intestinal Viral Infections) 
    • Colds and Sore Throat
    • Fever
    • Flu
    Weather Notes: As colder weather approaches, please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather. We will be going out to recess whenever possible and this includes cold temperature days. Recess may be cancelled for ice and snow but rarely for cold temperatures. If the temperature becomes unsafe, we will have indoor recess. Outdoor recess provides children with the vigorous exercise they need and will continue most winter days.
