A NOTE FROM EC TEACHER MS. FELDER



Hi Friends, 

I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created a DonorsChoose.org classroom request. 

Awaken Our Senses! 

Give to my classroom by April 13, 2016 and your donation will be doubled thanks to DonorsChoose.org. Just enter the code LIFTOFF during checkout and you'll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100). 

In return, you'll get awesome photos of your gift in action and our heartfelt thanks. 

Thank you so much,
Heather 

P.S. If you know anyone who may want to help my students, please pass this along!

A note from your Music teacher Ms. Bumsted


Come one come all, to the Glen Arden Tourist's Night!

Our chorus will be singing the national anthem on April 19th at the Asheville Tourist's Baseball Stadium.  Tickets are available for purchase through the school, they are $7 a piece and are good for any game except the 4th of July game.  Purchase forms will be coming home this week!

 
Do you have extra coins laying around the house?
Bring them into school for a cause! 

This month we will have a school-wide competition going on!  Each grade level is competing to raise the most donations by the end of April for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Hope Chest of Buncombe County.  Students can drop off their money (coins or bills) in the jugs near the cafeteria for their grade level.  The grade that wins will win extra recess time and a popsicle party! 

Don't miss out on the
4th Annual Family Fun Run & Picnic Dinner!!

A NOTE FROM YOUR EC TEACHER MRS HARRIS



Please help us raise funds for much needed class technology: http://bit.ly/1Rt57Gl
 
Along with all of their many strengths, my students also struggle with reading and writing skills. These struggles can often make the work of learning daunting. I am privileged to teach special education in a rural public school serving approximately 500 students. Because our school is in a community with a growing socioeconomic divide between the poor and wealthy, I strive daily to provide an equitable experience to all students. I teach students who need specialized instruction in reading, writing, math and/or social skills. The population of students that I teach have a variety of gifts and needs. They require a dynamic learning environments in order to maintain their enthusiasm about school. Technology helps them stay motivated to learn and grow, while also helping me to individualize their learning targets in the most effective way.

My Project

My students will use the headphones to access appropriate reading materials online using some amazing apps and software that are now available for those who struggle with reading fluency. They will be able to use the apple pencil to create visuals to show their learning and share with others on our iPad. They will learn to use the other accessories to keep our materials safe. Through this process, they will learn digital citizenship and responsibility, which is a key learning outcome for 21st century students.

Each time my students learn that people outside of our direct school community have contributed to their learning, their confidence and willingness to learn new things expands.

These materials will help the students access the technology that we currently have in our classroom in new and exciting ways. This will increase their engagement and excitement in class, and help them to take ownership of their learning.
