Parent Survey
This year’s parent survey can be found online at:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QSDQL5T
May 2014Gazette

Please take the time to affirm the good work of our faculty and staff as well to let us know what
we can do differentlyJ Last year’s parent input regarding a parental desire for GVP children to
show more respect toward one another has been taken seriously. The following list shows our
response to the input we received from parents on last year’s survey
1. Teachers supervise recess in order to maintain positive relationships that have already been
cultivated in the classroom.
2. Greenvale Park is currently in the final stages of planning for the implementation of Positive
Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) systems. We will roll out the program slowly and will
fully implement by fall, 2014.
3. We have purchased a software program to progress monitor social, emotional, and behavioral
growth.
4. We have shored up a consistent set of expectations for each area of the building and created
an expectation matrix for easy reference.
5. We have developed an incident report that has a standardized checklist to create a consistent
application of fix its and bottom lines across classrooms.
6. Katie Arnold is visiting each classroom once a month and sharing an object lesson on the
current character trait. Katie has also trained a number of Peer Mediators and we are ready
to begin the volunteer Peer Mediation Clinic! Students will be allowed to sign up to have a
conflict mediated. The clinic will be available twice a month and will be held during recess
time. We will be following the co-mediation model, so two peer mediators will work together at a time. In addition, Katie will be present at the mediations.
Spring Assessments are Currently Underway!
The Reading and Math MCAs were completed last week! Fifth Grade Science MCA’s will be
completed soon!
The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) and our Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy
Skills (DIBELS) will be administered in May. I am attaching the Northfield Assessment Schedule
for 2013-2014. The remainder of the year will look like this for testing at GVP:
DIBELS grades K‐‐5 May 1‐‐30
MAP spring math and reading all grades May 5‐‐23
MAP spring language grades 2‐‐5 May 5‐‐23
Please be sure to encourage your children to get enough sleep the night before each of these testing experiences. Proper nutrition on the day of the test will also give your child the opportunity to
be at their best. As much as possible, we ask that families plan around these test dates for appointments for their children so as not to interrupt testing times.
If you have any further questions about the assessments we will be administering this spring
please feel free to call: Diane Torbenson for the Reading MCA; Heather Ryden for the Math
MCA; and Roger Jenni/Northfield Public Schools Assessment Coordinator for the MAP or
MCA.

Kindergarten registration is open!
If you have a child who will be starting Kindergarten next fall, please come in and complete the registration forms as soon as
possible. To make arrangements to have the registration completed, please stop at the school office Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m.
– 4:00 p.m., or call the office at 507-645-3500. If you have any questions regarding whether or not your child is ready for
Kindergarten, please call me at 507-645-3502. The registration forms can also be found online at:

Kwik Trip Cards
Remember - Most everyone travels by car and the Greenvale Park PTO is selling Kwik Trip gift cards. If parents buy a $20 or
$50 Kwik Trip Card from the PTO for gasoline or any Kwik Trip items, 10% of the card comes back to Greenvale Park! Kwik
Trip cards can be purchased in the front office at Greenvale Park.
Greenvale Park Yearbooks
There will be extra yearbooks for sale upon arrival in May; the cost at that time will be $13.
Next GVP PTO meeting is on Monday, May 12th at 4 p.m. in the Media Center. Come join us!
Parking Lot
Thank you to all the great families for making our parking lot safe! YOU make GVP a safer place. You might be interested in
knowing that between 50 and 55 cars leave the parking lot every day between 3:15 and 3:25 p.m.
We are considering making the parking lot safer and more welcoming by moving the drop off and pick up zone to the front door
starting next year. What do you think about that? I’ve placed a survey question in the parent survey on SurveyMonkey in order
to seek your input. Let me know your thoughts.
Stuff
The district is not responsible for articles students bring to Greenvale Park. Parents need to discourage children from bringing
valuable and/or breakable items to school e.g. Pokemon cards, electronic devices, iPods, iPads, phones, Nintendo DS etc. Some
children have one-hour bus rides and it is reasonable for them to bring along some of these items to keep entertained. If families
have to send these items to school, children should bring them to the front office at the beginning of the day for safekeeping.
Skateboards, roller blades, roller shoes, scooters, etc. are NOT allowed as they raise safety issues.
Saludos familias:
Encuesta para padres y madres
La encuesta de este año la pueden encontrar en Internet en:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QSDQL5T
Por favor dediquen un tiempo para decirnos lo que hacemos bien los maestros y el personal así como déjennos saber lo que podríamos hacer de una forma diferente☺ La encuesta del año pasado resaltó el que las familias deseaban que los niños de GVP
mostraran más respeto los unos por los otros y eso es algo que nos hemos tomado muy en serio. La siguiente lista muestra nuestra respuesta a la información que recibimos de los padres y madres en la encuesta del año pasado ☺
1. Los maestros supervisan la hora del recreo para mantener las relaciones positivas que ya existen en el salón de clases.
2. Greenvale Park está en los pasos finales de planificar sistemas de apoyo e intervención para un comportamiento positivo
(PBIS). Vamos a desarrollar el programa despacio hasta llegar a su desarrollo total en el otoño de 2014.
3. Hemos comprado un programa de software para medir las mejorías sociales, emocionales y de comportamiento.
4. Hemos creado una serie de expectativas para cada área de la escuela y creado una matriz/tabla con las expectativas para que
sirva como referencia de fácil acceso.
5. Hemos desarrollado un sistema de informe de incidentes que tiene una lista estándar para conseguir un sistema consistente
para las situaciones que hay que arreglar (fix it) y las situaciones al límite (bottom line) en todos los salones de clases.
(Mr. Craft’s letter continued on page 3)

(Mr. Craft’s letter continued from page 2)
Katie Arnold visita cada salón de clases una vez al mes y comparte con la clase una lección relacionada con el rasgo de personalidad del mes. Katie también ha entrenado a varios mediadores entre colegas y ¡estamos preparados para empezar con la clínica de
voluntarios mediadores entre colegas! Los estudiantes van a poder apuntarse para que sus colegas los ayuden a resolver los conflictos mediante la mediación. La clínica estará disponible dos veces al mes y se hará durante el recreo. Vamos a seguir un modelo
de co-mediación, así que dos mediadores trabajarán juntos cada vez. Además, Katie va a estar presente durante las mediaciones.
¡Ya estamos haciendo los exámenes de la primavera!
¡La semana pasada hicimos los MCAs de lectura y matemáticas! ¡El MCA de ciencias para quinto grado lo vamos a terminar dentro de poco!
El examen de medidas del progreso académico (MAP) y nuestros indicadores dinámicos del conocimiento básico de alfabetización temprana (DIBELS) se harán en mayo. Les adjunto el horario de las evaluaciones en Nortfield para 2013-2014. El resto del
año en GVP será como sigue:
DIBELS grados K-5 Del 1 al 30 de mayo
MAP de primavera de matemáticas y lectura para todos los grados del 5 al 23 de mayo
MAP de primavera de lenguaje para los grados 2‐‐5 del 5 al 23 de mayo
Por favor, asegúrense de que sus hijos duermen suficiente la noche antes de un examen. Comer bien el día del examen también
les da a los niños la oportunidad de hacerlo lo mejor que pueden. Siempre que sea posible les pedimos que hagan citas y planes
familiares en días que no haya examen para no interrumpir los días de los exámenes.
Si tienen más preguntas sobre los exámenes que vamos a hacer en primavera, por favor, no duden en ponerse en contacto con
Diane Torbenson para el MCA de lectura; Heather Ryden para el MCA de matemáticas; y Roger Jenni/Coordinador de los exámenes de las escuelas públicas de Northfield para los MAP o los MCA.
¡La inscripción para Kindergarten ya la pueden hacer!
Si tienen un hijo/a que va a empezar Kindergarten el próximo otoño, por favor, vengan y rellenen los formularios de inscripción
lo antes posible. Para ayuda para rellenar la inscripción por favor, pasen por la oficina de la escuela de lunes a viernes de 7:00
a.m. a 4:00 p.m., o llamen a la oficina al 507-645-3500.
Si tienen preguntas sobre si su hijo o hija están preparados para Kindergarten, por favor, llamen al 507-645-3502.
Los formularios de inscripción también se pueden encontrar en Internet en:

Tarjetas de Kwik Trip
Recuerden – casi todos viajan en coche y el PTO de Greenvale Park vende las tarjetas de regalo de Kwik Trip. Si los padres y
madres compran $20, $50, o $100 dólares en tarjetas de Kwik Trip Card del PTO para comprar gasolina, el 10% de la tarjeta se
lo dan a Greenvale Park. Las tarjetas de Kwik Trip se pueden comprar en la oficina principal de Greenvale Park.
Anuarios del año en Greenvale Park (Yearbooks)
Habrá anuarios extra en venta cuando lleguen en mayo, el coste de los anuarios será de $13 dólares.
La siguiente reunión del PTO de GVP será el lunes 12 de mayo a las 4 p.m en el Media Center. ¡Vengan a la reunión!
Estacionamiento
Me gustaría darles las gracias a todas las familias que siguen las normas del estacionamiento de la escuela. USTEDES hacen que
GVP sea un lugar más seguro. Les puede interesar saber que entre las 3:15 pm y las 3:25 pm entre 50 y 55 coches salen de nuestro estacionamiento cada día. Estamos pensando hacer el estacionamiento más seguro y que sirva mejor para dar la bienvenida a
los visitantes haciendo que la zona de dejar y recoger a los niños sea en la puerta del frente a partir del año que viene. ¿Qué piensan de esta idea? En la encuesta para padres y madres en SurveyMonkey he incluido una pregunta para saber qué opinan. Déjenme saber qué piensan.
Cosas
El distrito no es responsable de las cosas que los estudiantes traen a la escuela. Las familias deben evitar que los niños traigan
cosas de valor o que se pueden romper a la escuela, por ejemplo, Pokemon cards, aparatos electrónicos como iPods, iPads, telé(Mr. Craft’s letter continued on page 4)
3
(Mr. Craft’s letter continued from page 3)
fons, Nintendo DS etc. Algunos niños tienen una hora de viaje en autobús y es razonable que quieran tener algo para entretenerse
en el camino. Si las familias tienen que enviar esos aparatos a la escuela, déjenlos en la oficina principal al comienzo del día escolar
para que estén guardados y protegidos hasta el final del día.
Los monopatines, patines, zapatos con ruedas, scooters, etc. NO están permitidos ya que pueden causar accidentes.

Save the Date (and your stuff)
Greenvale Park families will be taking part in the “Goods for Good” garage sale weekend on Friday, May

Butterfly Mimic
If you have noticed a small black and red-orange bird fluttering through the sumac at the Greenvale Lone
Oak Nature Area (GLONA), you may be seeing an American Redstart, Setophaga ruticilla. It is a member
of the warbler family of birds and quite common. I have seen it in GLONA as well as at Hauberg Woods
and Nerstrand Big Woods. They like to live near deciduous woods with shrubs nearby and water nearby.
The male is very colorful, with black on its back, patches of red-orange on its sides, wing, and tail, with a
white belly. It has black bristle-like feathers around its beak. The female is olive brown with yellow patches
on its sides, wing, and tail with a white belly. It is very active while feeding, darting back and forth like a butterfly. It fans its tail
and holds it open and droops its wings. The tiny birds eat insects, seeds, and occasionally will eat berries. They build a cup
shaped nest of grasses, bark, and spider’s silk. Look in the crotch of a small tree or shrub for its nest. Their eggs are whitish with
brown marks. It often makes a call that sounds like, “chip.” In the fall, the tiny birds will migrate all the way to Mexico, Central
America, and South America. They arrive back in our area about mid-May.
You can provide for the American Redstart, by having an understory of native shrubs as well as upper story trees. Do not use
chemicals, so they will have lots of insects to eat. You can find information about the American Redstart in most Bird field
guides and at www.allaboutbirds.org on your computer.
Northfield Prairie Partners has many fascinating wildlife programs planned for the spring and summer. On May 8, Nancy Braker
will do “Wildflowers at the Carleton College Arboretum starting at 6:00 pm. On May 9-10, the Back to Nature Garage/Plant
Sale, our fundraiser, will be at 414 Manitou Street. Nancy Schumacher will do “Monarch Butterflies” starting at 6:00 pm at the
outdoor classroom at Greenvale. On July 10, we will visit a home garden at 1612 Maple Street, “Home Garden Visit: Prairie,
Wildflowers & Traditional by Carolyn Sanford and Chuck Carlin. Finish the summer with Dan Hudson’s program “Understory
Trees,” at Hauberg Woods City Park on Thye Parkway. The programs are free and open to the public. We especially like to have
children with their parents attending the programs.

Safety Patrol...Donna Hall
Safety Patrol is now in the process of recruiting members for fifth grade safety patrol duty for the school year 2014-2015. Students who are interested in participating as fifth graders picked up a form to be completed and signed by the student and parent.
This form needs to be returned to Mrs. Hall, Safety Patrol Advisor, by Wednesday, May 7th.
The selection of captains for the 2014-2015 Safety Patrol Team will take place during May and the Co-Captains for next school
year will then be announced at the end of year celebration for the safety patrol members. Watch for those details coming home
soon with your safety patrol student.
Safety patrol families have been invited to help the Greenvale Park Families Goods for Good Garage Sale, either by helping out
with sale day, preparation or clean up, and/or by donating baked goods for the bake sale that will be part of the weekend as well.
These invitation forms went home on Friday, April 25th with all safety patrol members. The GVP Families Goods for Good
Committee appreciates any and all help your schedule will allow. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Hall at
the Greenvale Park Office, 645-3501.
News from our Nurse...Julie Ochs
Welcome spring, along with this comes allergies. The Web MD website has some good information on a variety
of allergies and what triggers allergies in our bodies. This is worth taking a look at.
Parents of fifth graders, if there are changes in your student's health condition that is no longer an issue or anything that is new please let me know so it can be updated for middle school. This summer is a good time to
update immunizations.
Reminder to pick up any medicine your student may have here at school, at the end of the year. Any questions feel free to call.

Why everyone should read over the summer!
Reading over the summer prevents “summer reading loss.”
Encourages reading to become a lifelong habit
Reluctant readers can be drawn in by the activities
Some researchers estimate 50-67% of the achievement gap, for children living in poverty
and for children of color, is the result of summer learning loss.
¨ And it being summer, the program can just be enjoyable and provide an opportunity for family time.
¨ It’s fun!
