April 4 50 th Anniversary We re on the Web! See us at: A Letter from the Assistant Principal: Is your child bored? Do they have empty unsupervised time on their hands? Do they need to engage in healthy activities that allow them to learn new skills and teach them how to interact with others? Do they need to find a new challenge? The mission of Carson Junior High is to provide a well-rounded academic experience, with high expectations, in a safe and equitable learning environment. Well-rounded. Those words are the very heart of the Carson mission statement and must be at the core of our students academic experience. With all the media and political attention on test results, AIMs, school rankings and tight budgets, we sometimes forget that education is not solely learned by reading the textbook. Students can learn an incredible amount from their peers through extracurricular activities. The more opportunities our students have to explore their physical, creative, social, and political interests with like minded people, the more motivated they become and the better they will do academically. Your children can watch others play basketball, baseball, track, tennis, volleyball, football, swimming, cheer, wrestling, softball and weight lifting on ESPN, play them on a video game, or they can get out and enjoy themselves by joining a Carson interscholastic or intramural athletic team and playing for themselves. They re not into team sports? Then there are the drama, art, chess, Industrial arts, dance, and service learning clubs; or perhaps the National Academic League, student council, newspaper, yearbook, choir, band, orchestra, or Spiritline. There are so many choices that it can seem overwhelming, but getting involved in new activities with new people is a fun way for students to challenge themselves. Some basic benefits of students getting involved in extracurricular activities include: Character Building A myriad of components contribute to the reasons why extracurricular activities benefit students academically. One of these reasons is that students learn character-building lessons that they can apply to their study habits and to their lives. Activities such as athletics, music, and drama, teach students how to discipline themselves through drills, practices, and rehearsals. The students have a responsibility to the activity and must perform the tasks assigned to them whether it is to run, sing, act, or organize an event. By participating and persevering in any of these activities, the students gain a sense of self-respect, selfesteem, and self-confidence. Extracurricular activities give them pride in their accomplishments, and they learn that if an activity is worth doing, it is worth doing well. (continued on Page 9)
2 Reading Our 7th grade Title I Reading classes completed the novel, When Zachary Beaver Came to Town, before our December vacation. We also watched the movie of the same name to compare it to the book and we found that there were a lot of differences. We even made games using the book's subject matter. Beginning this semester, we are back in our Language! curriculum with our first unit's theme of twins. This unit concentrates on pronouns, adverbs, and prepositions. Mrs. Mermelstein Mathematics Mr. Carlson and Mrs. Bertlesman are working hard with their math classes. In 7th grade math, the students have finished working on positive and negative integers and fractions and are moving into graphing equations. The 8th grade math classes have finished probability, equations and fractions. They are currently working on inequalities. Please feel free to contact us any time you would like. Tracy Bertlesman and Eric Carlson Title I School News Page 2 Homerooms Do you know how to insert a table into a word document? What does the thesaurus do? Can you reformat a picture behind the text? How do you design your own CD cover? Starting this January, all homerooms will be coming to the computer lab to improve their Word, Excel, and PowerPoint basic skills in quick half-hour lessons. Using the thesaurus can take a lack-luster essay to one with a more sophisticated vocabulary. The classes will practice the week s Directed Vocabulary in a variety of formats. The goal is to make your student more familiar and comfortable using the kinds of computer tools that will improve their writing skills and classroom presentations. Judi Missel, Computer Lab CAMFEL PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS: Charting Your Course On Wednesday, February 6, 2008, Carson students will see a multi-media presentation presented by Camfel Productions in our auditorium.

6 Page 3 How Important Is Attendance? Today s fast-paced lifestyles and hectic schedules often lead to the temptation to allow children to skip school for everything from a simple headache to a field trip to the mall. But teachers don t call school your child s first job for nothing. Following the guidelines below will help you determine whether your child should be in school or home in bed. No child should go to school sick--ever. Nausea, fever, dizziness, rashes, etc., are all signs that your child needs either a trip to the doctor s office or a day of bed rest. However, mysterious illnesses that suddenly crop up on the day of your child s spelling test or science presentation are reason for suspicion. Letting a child stay home just because he or she is feeling tired or grumpy may make you feel better, but the learning time lost will only make your child feel worse when he or she is stuck playing catch-up with the rest of the class! During most school years, unexpected family obligations arise, such as funerals, hospital visits, or even just visits from seldom seen relatives. Naturally, family life is no less important than school life, and occasional absences are sometimes necessary. Often, teachers will provide make-up work for students to complete during family emergencies or during school breaks where classes must be missed to reach a distant destination in time for the holidays. However, allowing a child to miss too much school as a result of out-of-town guests or extra vacation days is a bad practice that can cause students to fall behind in class work. Organized school activities, field trips, and religious observances are other reasons that a child might legitimately miss a school day or two. But allowing your child to miss school frequently or for frivolous reasons can lead to a habit that s hard to break. It also denies your child the full benefit of his or her education, and that s enough to make any student sick! Que Tan Importante Es La Asistencia Del Alumnado En Las Escuelas Publicas? Últimamente se ha visto que con todos los momentos que pasamos en la vida es más fácil que el alumnado se quede en casa por cualquier cosita, por ejemplo un pequeño dolor de cabeza o si hay alguna excursión organizada por la Escuela el alumnado prefiere quedarse en casa. En las siguientes línea daremos una guía a seguir para poder prevenir las faltas del alumnado en nuestras Escuelas y así también diferenciar si el alumnado esta enfermo o no. Ningún estudiante tiene que asistir a la Escuela si se encuentra muy enfermo, temperatura, mareos, etc., son síntomas de enfermedad y el /la estudiante tiene que ir al doctor o quedarse en casa hasta que pase el periodo de fiebre. Pero hay que tener cautela, cuándo el alumnado se siente muy mal antes de que atiendan sus exámenes o tengan que estar presentes en la escuela para cumplir con trabajos asignados y demas, es ahí cuando tenemos que diferenciar entre enfermedad y no asistir a clases por no querer o por no tener las tareas o por falta de estudio a los exámenes. Dejar que el/la estudiante se quede en casa solamente por que están muy cansados/as no es falta justificada y la consecuencia inmediata es que se perdió las clases y estará en desventaja académica y tendrá que reponer este tiempo perdido! Durante los Años Escolares, cosas inexplicables pasan como por ejemplo enfermedades, muerte de algún pariente, emergencias en general. Naturalmente, vida familiar es tan importante como la asistencia en la Escuela, y se aceptaran faltas en estos eventos de la vida y se justificaran también, sé pide que se haga esto con limites ya que es muy difícil para el alumnado regresar y tratar de aprender todo lo que se impartió, entré menos se falta menos trabajo tendrá que recuperar en faltas... Organizando actividades escolares, excursiones, y eventos religiosos, les da al alumnado una razón legítima para faltar a la escuela uno o dos días. Pero al mismo tiempo dar permiso de faltar por pequeñeces les enseñara a seguir este habito de por vida. Esto también afecta directamente al beneficio de su Educación y esto es suficiente para decir, esta situación me enferma!

Please ask your student what careers they explored and what there career interest is, when they get home from school.

9 Page 9 (Continued from Page1) Letter from the Assistant Principal Social Although social aspects of a student s life do not directly affect his or her grade point average, they do affect the overall well-being of the student. Students learn how to compromise and work in a group. Extracurricular activities help to enhance the student s social skills by allowing students to meet and interact with peers that may not be within their close group of friends and teach lessons not learned in a classroom. Extracurricular activities are an effective way to network and meet other people with whom the students can study and teach the students to work cooperatively in teams developing skills that will help them be successful in school and attain jobs in the future. Students at Risk Not only do extracurricular activities help students who are already successful in school to further excel, they also help students who are at risk of dropping or flunking out to remain in school. Students involved in most activities must maintain their grades and cannot be referred to the office or else they may be unable to participate. Therefore, the borderline students who thoroughly enjoy their activity work hard to pass their classes so that they may continue to participate. In high school, extracurricular activities may be the only component that makes some students stay in school and attend regularly. As the assistant principal at Carson, I can unequivocally state that a major benefit of extracurricular activities for at risk students is that it lessens the number of discipline problems and increases attendance. Student athletes are considerably less involved in school-related misbehavior, non-school related misbehavior, drug, alcohol, and tobacco abuse, and serious offenses with the law. Extracurricular activities give students positive activities in which to be involved, and they spend their time in a safe, productive manner. On February 4, 2008, tryouts will be held for baseball, softball and track. Some clubs are ongoing and the students can contact the club sponsor if they are interested in participating. If your child has an idea for a new club have him or her stop by and share their idea with me. Students involved in extracurricular activities do better socially and academically. So find out what your child s interest is and get them involved. I want to close by saying thank you to all the parents who support their students in their extracurricular activities. Without your support, we couldn t do it. Thank you. Tim Keilty Carson Art Club News Two students from Carson submitted designs to the City of Mesa for murals at the Park of the Canals. Unexpectedly, both designs were picked by the City for the park at 8 th Street and Dobson Road. On December 7 and 8, Mr. Cluff, Mrs. Howe, students from Carson, Westwood, and children from the neighborhood all helped to paint the murals. The club has also beautified the Carson Campus by painting a mural in the lunch area and decorating all the seating benches. Pictures of all these projects can be found on the Carson website at
