• December 7, 2018

    Dear Baker Community:

    Our school is well into parent conference season.  This is a time when classrooms have well-established routines and expectations, and the academic demands continue to increase.  These are often the times times when social and academic struggles begin to present themselves, and our trusting relationships begin to be tested.  If your family is feeling stresses related to school, I urge you to try to increase your communication with the teachers that you work with. Our staff is working to emphasize face-to-face communication and phone calls over email because we know that dialogue helps with building shared understanding and collaboration.   

    Teaching and Learning:

    • Kindergarten classes are working on their Me and My Family  unit which celebrates the similarities and differences among our students and families.  One of the anchor texts is The Skin You Live In by Michael J. Tyler

                       The Skin You Live In

    • 6th grade scientists have been learning about human body systems and are now starting to focus on the brain and central nervous system.  These scientists are curious and completely engaged in discussions about the parts of the brain and how it works!

                       6th grade science

    • 6th grade writers are writing and shari ng poetry.
    • 6th grade readers have been focusing on character development through learning activities that explore empathy.
    • PE students across the town of Brookline have been engaged in fitness assessments.  Students are gathering data on cardiovascular health, flexibility, upper body strength, and abdominal strength.  
    • The Admin Team met again with Jamie Almanzan from the Equity Collaborative and Kalise Wornum, Director of Education Equity, for support with our professional development planning for our staff.
    • Congressman Joseph Kennedy III spoke with 8th graders as part of a Midterm Elections Unit conducted in Social Studies.  Students asked the congressman complex questions about his role as a congressman, as well as his thoughts about topics such as Saudi Arabia, climate change, and the Marriage Equality Act.

                          Congressman Joseph Kennedy III

    Living our Values - Work Hard, Be Kind, Help Others, Build Relationships:

    • As a way to help students bring their family/home cultures into the classroom, kindergarten parents are being asked to write about and share meaning or origin of their child’s name.  Families are also packing “Family Boxes” with items that represent their families. Items may include: photographs, recipes,  favorite objects, songs, items from family trips, and more!  These items help students introduce the cultures of their families to their classmates.

                          Book by KCP students

    • 6th grade readers have been exploring the concept of empathy by watching a range of videos, making connections to the emotions, and relating the emotions to texts.

    Dear Baker Community,

    We had a very busy week with some amazing community building!  Outside of our building, our Brookline Teaching and Learning Team are busy with their Math Program Review process.  Please contribute by completing the survey below.

    Math Review:

      • The Public Schools of Brookline is conducting its first math program review since 2005.  We are seeking parent/caregiver feedback about our PreK-8 math program and asking all parents of students in our PreK-8 schools to take an online survey.  Parent/caregiver feedback is essential to help us to understand from the parent/caregiver point of view what is working and what is not working with our PreK-8 math programs.

                         Parent survey for PreK-8 Math Program review 2018

    Please click on the links below for translated copies of the letter and survey. You may send all responses to Meg Maccini.

    September 21, 2018

    Dear Baker Families,

    It is September 21st and we still have not yet had a full week of school!  That said, our students and teachers have been extremely busy building routines, setting expectations, and gearing up to dive into teaching content.   Our 8th grade trip to The Makery was photographed and published in the Brookline Tab .  Our students are re-building stamina for academic work, and we are slowly beginning to raise the work demands.  We have also started our Back-to-School Curriculum presentations, which will continue through next week. We hope to see you there!

    Teaching and Learning:

    Students from grades K through 8 are all learning about how they will operate as scientists.  It is amazing to see the threads that connect the learning occurs across all grade levels.

    • First graders explored their thinking about what scientists looks like, what they do, and where they work.  
    • Second graders practiced observation skills using magnifying glasses and sea shells.  
    • Sixth graders and seventh graders reviewed making observations and inferences, and using microscopes.  
    • All grades also learned how they will organize their work as scientists.  All of this work sets the stage so that students can operate with greater efficiency later in the year.

     

    Living our Values - Work Hard, Be Kind, Help Others, Build Relationships:

    Parents have been asking about our rules and expectation across the different settings within the school.  It is difficult to provide a simple, consistent list of rules because our community members represent wide ranges in their age, and levels of understanding of rules.  Our staff members have been contributing their thoughts about expectations in various settings and age levels that are grounded in our school values. Our expectations for the cafeteria are being printed as posters and will appear in the cafeteria in the next two weeks.   Expectations for other locations in the school are being refined and will also be posted for clarity and consistency.

    Upcoming Events:

    • 9/24 (Monday) @ 8:00 - 8:45 - 2nd Grade Back to School Presentations
    • 9/25 (Tuesday) @ 8:00 - 8:45 - 1st Grade Back to School Presentations

    Dear Baker Families,

    During our first six weeks of school, teachers work with their students to establish routines and expectations, and build community.  Simultaneously, the Baker Admin team has been meeting with parent groups to learn about how we can support engaging families in community events.  We are excited about the possibilities this year!

    Teaching and Learning:

    • Gr. 3 students have been working on building stamina for reading.  The entire 3T class had sustained independent reading for 22 minutes.  While reading, students were focused on finding out what “just right books” are for them.  Keep it up 3T!
    • The 8th grade team took the students to The Makery, where they created individualized journals.  These journals will be used as part of the Disciplinary Literacy Initiative to build reading, writing, and communication skills.
    • Superintendent Bott joined the Baker admin. team in observing students and teachers at work in grades 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8.

    Living Our Core Values:

    • The 8th grade team went to Tree Top Adventures.  There they participated in group activities, climbing, and ziplining.  The goal of this trip was to have a shared community experience to build and strengthen the connections among students and with teachers.  
    • Members of the PTO, the Site Council, and the Diversity Committee  met to discuss ways to increase the quality of family participation in our community events.  This meeting was our first opportunity to practice placing an emphasis on building connections through our meeting protocols.  If you haven’t done so, please join our PTO email list at https://www.bakerschoolpto.org/pto-newsletter.html  and/or email the PTO to get involved in volunteering at BakerPTO@gmail.org .
    • Boohoo/Yahoo! In years past, this was an event intended to welcome and help new kindergarten families acclimate to Baker School.  This year’s meeting was attended by a small group of “veteran” kindergarten parents. We used this opportunity to discuss a need among parents to better understand behavioral expectations in school,  and how to increase family involvement. Please look for information about how to get involved with the PTO during your upcoming classroom Back-to-School curriculum presentations next week.
