OVIATT ELEMENTARY By Dr. Laura Sivadge Preschool-lst Grade Principal Kindergarten Round-Up: The annual Oviatt Elemen- tary Kindergarten Round-Up is scheduled for Monday, April 19, from 6-7:40 p.m., in the Oviatt gym. Since cur- rent preschoolers have a tour available in May, it is rec- ommended that only parents/guardians attend this meeting. If your child will attend kindergarten for the 2010- 2011 school year, you need to notify Cheri Atherton, District Registrar, at 981-0676. She will send you a reg- istration packet. You are encouraged to return your com- pleted registration before Round-Up using the follow- ing address: Norwalk Community Schools, Attn: Cheri Atherton, 906 School Ave., Norwalk. IA 50211. Enclosed with the registration mailing is information that provides parents with an overview of the two class- room settings offered: classic and looping. Also enclosed will be the form, Kindergarten Classroom Preference Form, which asks you to prioritize the classroom setting pref- erences for your child. This form needs to be returned either with your registration materials or on the night of April 19. A child's placement in either a classic or looping classroom setting is determined by the date and time received. Attending registration from 6 to 6:50 p.m. on April 19 is only necessary if registration forms have not been returned to the district office, a copy of the child's birth certificate needs made, or if you have questions for the office staff or school nurse. Kindergarten classrooms will be open from 6-6:50 p.m. in case you want to conduct a self-guided tour before the 7 p.m. program. We do encourage all parents of incoming kindergar- ten students to attend the 7-7:45 p.m. program April 19, in the Oviatt gym. Dr. Denny Wulf, district superinten- dent and Laura Sivadge, elementary principal, will fa- cilitate the program. This program includes an overview of two classroom settings at Oviatt Elementary and a description of the June kindergarten orientation pro- gram. This same evening, you will also have the oppor- tunity to meet Directors of Nutrition, Transportation, and Technolog the school nurse and the secretaries of Oviatt Elementary and Cheri Atherton, Registrar. We hope you can attend the kindergarten registra- tion April 19 so we can meet one another and prepare for your child's participation in the June 3 and 4 orien- tation program and Kindergarten in the fall.

The sixth grade GT class, comprised of 13 stu- dents, started working on this project in September. They researched various styles of American archi- tecture throughout the centuries and identified characteristics that they believed could be inte- grated into a school of the future. Students looked through architecture magazines and books and analyzed famous architec- tural structures. To simulate real life, students were each given a job and had to work with other students to design one school. They played the roles of architects, landscapers, energy con- sultants and interior de- signers, to name a few. This competition was "a good way to collaborate with other people," said sixth grader Zach Kreider. Some key features of their school included a roof garden, solar panels on sidewalks and the park- ing lot, a fruit and veg- etable garden, personal computers for each stu- dent and recycled and sus- tainable building materi- als, just to name a few. The students composed an 800-word essay, pro- duced a 15-minute video and made a scale model of their school. Their prod- ucts went to a regional competition and were judged by architects, ad- ministrators and other professionals involved in school design. The stu- dents participated in a phone conference and in- terview with the regional jury. They earned second place and were rewarded with a $250 cash prize. MIDDLE SCHOOL NEWS By Ken Foster, 6-7, Principal Thursday, April 8, we handed out report cards at the end of the day. Your child should have brought his/her report card home that night. If you have not seen it, please look for it and discuss it with them. We also sent home a booklet I found that talks about students being online. The title is: "NET CETERA Chatting with Kids About Being Online." The book has valuable information for both parents and stu- dents. Please take the time to read it and then discuss its content with your children. If you did not see the booklet, you may contact the Middle School for a copy.
