Newhart Middle School’s Back to School Night

Thursday, August 25, 2016

6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

 

Dear Parents,

 

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend Newhart Middle School’s Back to School Night. We are excited about sharing our middle school program with you. Back to School night is a special night exclusively for parents or guardians of students enrolled in our school.  Each student has been encouraged to write his/her schedule of classes in the space provided below. A map of the school is on the reverse side of this letter.  Since this is an evening for parents, we ask that students not attend.  

 

This evening is designed to provide you with an opportunity to visit your child’s classes and meet his or her teachers. During the fifteen minutes in each class, the teachers will explain their instructional programs, discuss learning objectives and display instructional materials and textbooks. Although there is no time for individual conferences, appointments can be made with teachers if there is a need to do so.

 

Parking is available in the front lot, the back black top, the Senior Center, the soccer center and along Veterans Way; however we strongly encourage carpooling.  We recommend bringing a flashlight if necessary as it could be dark before the end of the program.   

 

Coffee and treats will be provided by the Newhart Middle School’s PTA in the library.


 

Newhart Middle School will be on a minimum day schedule on FRIDAY, the day after, Back to School night and will be dismissed at 12:45 p.m.  Feel like an after school treat?  Go to the Snow Station after school Friday from 1-4pm and they will donate 20% back to Newhart!  What a great way to support our school and have fun with friends.

Snow Station is located at: 25380 Marguerite Pkwy, Suite A

 

Best wishes for a wonderful evening!

 

Sincerely,



 

Jeff Jones

Principal

Attention NEW 7th grade parents:

Tdap Vaccine Requirement For Students Entering 7th Grade.  In order to avoid long lines at orientation, Newhart MS is asking our current 6th grade families to bring a copy of their Tdap records to the office prior to the end of the year.  For the 2016-2017 school year, all students entering 7th through 12th grades will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster shot (commonly called the “Tdap” vaccine) before starting school.  Whooping cough (pertussis) has been widespread in California. Many students have had to miss school because they were sick. To help protect your children and others from whooping cough, a new California law now requires students to be vaccinated against whooping cough. 

 

Do ALL 7th grade students need to get the pertussis immunization?  Yes. All students going into 7th grade must have proof of having had the Tdap booster shot. This includes current students, new students and transfer students in both public and private schools. Many students have already received the vaccine and simply need to supply proof to the school, so check with your doctor or provider.   As soon as you have proof of the Tdap, please bring it into the office so that we may clear you for next year.

Newhart Middle School’s

Back to School Night

Thursday, September 3, 2015

6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Dear Parents,

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend Newhart Middle School’s Back to School Night. We are excited about sharing our middle school program with you. Back to School night is a special night exclusively for parents or guardians of students enrolled in our school.  Each student has been encouraged to write his/her schedule of classes in the space provided below. A map of the school is on the reverse side of this letter.  Since this is an evening for parents, we ask that students not attend. 

This evening is designed to provide you with an opportunity to visit your child’s classes and meet his or her teachers. During the fifteen minutes in each class, the teachers will explain their instructional programs, discuss learning objectives and display instructional materials and textbooks. Although there is no time for individual conferences, appointments can be made with teachers if there is a need to do so.

Parking is available in the front lot, the black top, the Senior Center, the soccer center and along Veterans Way; however we strongly encourage carpooling.  We recommend bringing a flashlight if necessary as it will be dark before the end of the program.  

Coffee and treats will be provided by the Newhart Middle School’s PTA in the library.

Newhart Middle School will be on a minimum day schedule on FRIDAY, the day after, Back to School night and will be dismissed at 12:45 p.m.  The local businesses and restaurants request that students do not visit their establishments without parent supervision.

Best wishes for a wonderful evening!

Sincerely,

 

Jeff Jones

Tdap vaccine requirement for students entering 7th grade

Whooping cough (pertussis) has been widespread in California. Many students have had to miss school because they were sick. To help protect your children and others from whooping cough, California law requires students to be vaccinated against whooping cough.

For the 2015-2016 school year, all students entering 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster shot (commonly called the “Tdap” vaccine) before starting school.  You can turn in your shot record anytime to our school during office hours or bring a copy during walk-thru registration.  Please call if you have questions.

Veteran’s Way will be resurfaced with Slurry Seal on Wednesday October 29, Thursday October 30, and Saturday November 1.  The phasing of the Slurry Seal is scheduled as follows:
 
On Wednesday October 29, and Thursday October 30, Veteran’s Way will be Slurry Sealed starting at the cross walk located approximately 300 feet from La Paz Road to the end of the street (the cul-de-sac).  This work will not impact the driveway to the school’s La Paz parking lot located on Veteran’s Way.  The street will remain open and vehicles will still be able to drive up and down Veteran’s Way to the parking lot adjacent to the Senior Center.
 
On Saturday, November 1 Veteran’s Way will be Slurry Sealed from La Paz Road to the first cross walk located approximately 300 feet from La Paz Road.  Access to the school’s parking lot on La Paz from Veteran’s Way will be closed on Saturday, November 1.  Access to the parking lot will still be available from La Paz Road.  Vehicles will still be able to drive up and down Veteran’s Way to the parking lot adjacent to the Senior Center.
 
The work will be phased so that the road will always be open (but narrowed down) and you will always have access to the parking lot adjacent to the Senior Center, however, getting to the back parking lot may be a little more difficult at times.  These dates are subject to change due to weather or mechanical problems.

School Loop will be re-activated and available to use from the first day of the new school year.   Parents and students will not be able to register new accounts or login to existing accounts until this time.  School Loop is school-specific, so if you are new to the school, and had an account at a different CUSD school, you will still need to register for an account again through the new school’s website.  The link is on the homepage of the school’s website.  You will need the Student ID Number and an email address to complete this process. 

 

School Loop is a different application to the Parent Portal.  It is available to secondary level parents and students only.   Parents are encouraged to use both applications.

 

The Parent Portal may be accessed at any time during the school year and parent and student accounts only needs to be established once as they rollover with updated student data each year. Don’t have a portal account? Contact the school office for your child to request the information needed to create an account.

 

The Parent Portal is only accessible to parents of students in the current 2014-15 school year.  Information on obtaining transcripts for graduated students may be found on the CUSD website.

 

Please direct any additional questions to your school office which re-opens to the public on Monday, August 11th from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Kirsten Vital to Lead the Highest-Performing, Large School District in California

 

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO— Kirsten M. Vital has been named the new Superintendent of the Capistrano Unified School District, succeeding Dr. Joseph M. Farley who will retire on July 1, 2014, as the leader of Orange County’s second-largest school district.

The Board of Trustees made the selection of Ms. Vital following a closed session meeting on June 14, 2014. A contract is expected to be ratified on Wednesday, June 25 at the Board of Trustees’ regularly scheduled meeting.

Ms. Vital Superintendent comes to CUSD from Alameda Unified School District in Alameda, California, where she is Superintendent.

A seasoned educator, Ms. Vital has held key leadership positions in some of California’s largest districts, including Los Angeles Unified School District and Oakland Unified School District. Vital has been a teacher, an assistant principal, principal, and a college professor.

To find the ideal candidate, the Board of Trustees conducted a nationwide search. The search was guided by a detailed list of leadership criteria, a web-based survey, community forum, and responses from focus groups representing community and district stakeholders.

Board President John M. Alpay expressed his confidence in Vital, "We wanted to ensure that we had the right person for this very important role during this critical time in our District," he said. "Because of her demonstrated track record of success, the Board of Trustees is certain that Kirsten Vital is the right leader who will take our District to new heights of student achievement."

Retiring Superintendent Dr. Joseph M. Farley has been widely praised for his leadership of the District over the last four years. Capistrano Unified schools have consistently ranked in the top one percent of California’s public schools. Successfully weathering the most recent economic recession, the District’s fiscal position was certified as "positive" by the Orange County Department of Education.

With over 4,000 employees, the new Superintendent will take the helm of the largest employer in South Orange County.

Ms. Kirsten M. Vital

Due to the large number of in class projects, research and time needed to review in class for finals, beginning today, June 9th we will be on a Friday bell schedule every day until the end of school, except Wednesday’s and the last day of school which is a minimum day.  As a staff we believe this extra time in each period will benefit the students more and hopefully lead to less time being used at home to complete projects over the next two weeks.

PJ was a Castille student before passing away suddenly in April of 2012. He would be in 5th grade this year and we have never forgotten his beautiful smile and spirit.  You can see the beautiful memorial at Castille to him over by the basketball courts.

The class that turns in the most will be celebrating with donuts on Friday, December 13th. There will be a winning class for each grade. Will your class be the winning class?

Schoolloop will be re-activated and available to use from the first day of the new school year.   Parents and students will not be able to register new accounts or login to existing accounts until this time.  Schoolloop is school-specific, so if you are new to the school, and had an account at a different CUSD school, you will still need to register for an account again through the new school’s website.  The link is on the homepage of the school’s website.  You will need the Student ID Number and an email address to complete this process. 

Schoolloop is a different application to the Parent Portal.  It is available to secondary level parents and students only.   Parents are encouraged to use both applications.

The Parent Portal may be accessed at any time during the school year and parent and student accounts only needs to be established once as they rollover with updated student data each year.

CST (STAR) TESTING April 30th , May 2nd and 3rd

These days will be minimum days.  Students will be released at 12:45 on Tuesday, April 30th, Thursday, May 2nd and Friday, May 3rd all students are taking tests on all three testing days.

 

Dear Newhart Middle School Parents:

 

Your child will be participating in the California’s Standardized Testing and ReportingSTAR” program on April 30th, May 2nd and 3rd. Newhart Middle School is one of the many schools participating in this statewide program.  The STAR program is designed to provide students, parents, teachers, and the community with information about student achievement.

 

The tests your child will be taking are called either the California Standards Test (CST) or the California Modified Assessment (CMA).  All students in the second through eleventh grade attending public school in California will be taking these tests.

 

To maximize his or her opportunity to perform well on the test, it is important that students do their best to increase the accuracy of the results. You are a vital part of the testing process and can help by:

 

  • making sure your child has plenty of rest the night before testing;
  • providing a healthy breakfast;
  • helping your child see the test as an opportunity to show what he or she has learned and encouraging your child to do his or her best;
  • scheduling appointments outside of the testing window;
  • making sure your child is here and on time.

 

Parents will receive detailed reports of their child’s results, which will be sent to your home over the summer with an explanation of the results.  Group results by grade level for each school, district, county, and the state will be posted as a link on the Capistrano Unified School District’s Web page (www.capousd.org).

 

Please feel free to contact the school at (949) 855-0162 with any questions you may have regarding the standardized testing that will be administered to your child.

Whooping cough (pertussis) has been widespread in California. Many students have had to miss school because they were sick. To help protect your children and others from whooping cough, a new California law now requires students to be vaccinated against whooping cough.

For the 2013-2014 school year, all students entering 7th through 12th grades will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster shot (commonly called the “Tdap” vaccine) before starting school.

Thereafter, in future school years, only students entering 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster shot (Tdap) before starting school. Please see the following resources (downloadable PDFs) for more information:

This year the 8th Grade Awards Ceremony will be held June 6th, 2013.  Due to district policy Capistrano Unified middle schools have an awards ceremony instead of a graduation.  While some of the awards are based upon a student’s GPA, it is not the only way to receive an invitation for the awards. 

 

One way to assure you are invited is through Newhart’s Panther Pride Award.  For the Panther Pride Award a student must earn 15 point and have less than 10 demerits for any reason in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd quarters combined.  One point equals one hour of service.  At least 10 hours must be in the category of school service.  5 hours can be church or community service.  Or, all 15 hours can be in the school service category.  Applications can be picked up in the office or found on the Newhart website.  The deadline for applications to be turned in has been extended to April 30th, 2013.

 

There are still many opportunities to earn points for the Panther Pride Award including this Saturday’s Campus Beautification Day, Earth day on April 19th, and the Walk for Wishes on April 27th.  Any questions please contact your students Academic Advisor.

We are encouraging all parents who have not yet done so to register for a Parent Portal account as soon as possible in order to take advantage of the options available through this system. In the 2013-2014 school year, the Capistrano Unified School District will institute a paperless report card system.  Instructions on how to request a paper copy will be included with June report cards.

To create a Parent Portal account, you will need three pieces of information: 1. your home phone number 2. your student’s identification number 3. Verif Pass Code.  Please log onto abi.capousd.orgto create your account. There are written directions and a 4-minute video explaining the process.

Parent Portal is the latest resource being used by our schools to keep parents informed. You may already have access to School Loop, which allows you to access your child’s homework assignments and test scores and contact his or her teacher(s).

Parent Portal is a tool that will allow you to re-register your child for the 2013-14 online, saving valuable time and paper; update emergency contact information; receive real-time period-by-period attendance data; and review and print report cards, class schedules, unofficial transcripts and graduation status.

Parent Portal and School Loop are important tools our teachers and staff use to keep you informed about your child’s progress. Registering for Parent Portal will keep your child’s important information at your fingertips.

If you have questions about this process, please contact your school office.

Re:       Today’s Tragic Events in Connecticut

 

As you undoubtedly know, today, a school-related shooting in Connecticut resulted in the tragic loss of children and school staff. This message is sent on behalf of Board President John Alpay, and the entire Board of Trustees of the Capistrano Unified School District, to express their deepest sympathy to everyone impacted by these events.

 

Parents may be interested in supportive information on how to discuss tragic events like these with their children. Such resources are available at the following website:        

 

                                                http://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/ss/cp/tragedy.asp.

 

A natural response to school tragedies is an increased concern for the safety of one’s own family.  You should know that the Capistrano Unified School District works collaboratively with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, and other agencies, to protect our students, staff, and school communities.

 

Thank you,

In an effort to protect classroom instructional time and limit distractions, we are implementing a new system in the attendance office, beginning on Tuesday, November 13th, which is the start of our second quarter. Any forgotten items such as homework, P.E. clothes, lunches or lunch money etc., will no longer be sent directly to the students classroom.  If an occasional item is left at home or forgotten; it may be dropped off at the student ATTENDANCE WINDOW.  This window can be accessed on the left side of the office.  We will make sure that your child’s name is written on a post it note and taped to the widow.  It will now be the students’ responsibility to check the message area on the window, during passing periods, break and lunch times. They will simply come to the attendance window, check for their name and retrieve their item. 

There have been an overwhelming number of items being dropped off for students on a daily basis.  We hope this new system will allow teachers to teach and students to learn with less distraction.  Thank you for your understanding and patience with this new system for our “Newhart Scholars!”

If you need more details regarding this new procedure, please feel free to contact our office manager, Cheryl Isaac.

You'll need proof of a whooping cough shot 

For the 2012-2013 school year, and all future school years, all students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called “Tdap”) before starting school in the fall.  Make your doctor appointment today!

Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools and communities against pertussis.

Dear Parents:

The CUSD Parent Portal is now available for parents of all current K-12 students.  We strongly encourage you to register for a Parent Portal account before school offices close in June, so you are able to take advantage of the new online re-registration system for the 2012-13 school year.   When the window opens in August, parents with portal accounts will have the ability to use this online system for re-registration, rather than completing the large, traditional paper packet. Parents will also have the ability at any time during the year to update student demographic and emergency contact records, view real-time daily attendance reports, print report cards and transcripts and also be able to download important documents directly from the portal. 

Letters were mailed home the week of February 13 to parents of secondary students with specific information related to Parent Portal account creation. Parents of elementary students received their letters during parent conferences.  The information in the letter includes your student’s ID, home phone, and a unique verification code which will be needed during the portal registration process.  Using the information from the letter, simply logon to abi.capousd.org where you will find directions and a link for creating your Parent Portal account.  There is also a portal link on each school’s homepage. A HELP link is available at abi.capousd.org if you have questions during the registration process.  If you have lost your letter, please contact your school office before the last day of school.

District Offers Programs for Students to Stay Active, Engaged During Break

            South Orange County children can take advantage of a full range of enrichment activities and athletic classes through the Capistrano Unified School District community education program, also known as ACE.

            “These activities and camps are a great way for students to stay active and engaged both mentally and physically during the summer months,” Superintendent Joe Farley said. “Our community education programs offer a number of high quality choices for students and their families.”

            Among the diverse offerings are classes in computer game design, cooking, math and video production. Group, private, and semi-private swim lessons are available at four high schools and sports camps for students of all ages will be offered. For more information, call (949) 234-9482 or visit the CUSD ACE website. Classes begin June 25, 2012.

            Returning this summer is the UC Irvine Writing Project, a three-week standards-based program that offers students an opportunity to develop their writing skills. An afternoon session that focuses on math and science is also available. Last summer the project attracted more than 300 children. Sessions will be held at Oso Grande and Laguna Niguel elementary schools. To register for the UCI Writing Project, call (949) 824-5922 or visit the project website.

All schools in the Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) will be closed on Friday, Sept. 9, 2011, due to the power outage affecting Southern Orange and San Diego counties.

The District, like many school districts serviced by San Diego Gas and Electric, has decided to cancel classes for its students. A decision regarding Friday evening sporting events has not yet been made.

“We have no assurance that power will be restored by the time school begins tomorrow morning, and local emergency jurisdictions have advised the District to suspend classes until power is restored,” Superintendent Joe Farley said. “We are sorry for the obvious inconvenience to our working families, but it is clearly not proper to have students in school without electricity to power key systems including lights, refrigeration, and computers.”

The decision to close schools was made for a number of reasons, including the lack of power at school sites and the difficulty many staff members will have commuting to work from their homes in Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties. Only the CUSD staff members who have been specifically notified should report to work on Friday, Sept. 9.

Power is expected to be restored in time for school on Monday. For more information, please call the District’s Hotline at (949) 234-5575, which will be open at 7 a.m. or visit the District website at www.capousd.org.

LA TIMES READERS NAME NEWHART OC’S BEST MIDDLE SCHOOL

 

Award Honors High Achieving School Community

 

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO— In the first-ever Los Angeles Times Readers’ Choice awards, Newhart Middle School was voted the Orange County Regional Winner for middle schools. More than 400,000 votes were cast by readers of the Times in different categories, including education.

“We are extremely proud to be voted the top Orange County middle school by the readers of the LA Times,” Principal Jeff Jones said. “This award recognizes the hard work of students and teachers to build a sense of community at this school. I’m sure it’s due to our continued drive for academic success.”

Jones said the school’s increasing Academic Performance Index (API) score is an indication of continued growth. In 2007, the school’s API was 836. By 2010, it had risen 52 points to 888. Newhart was also named as a California Distinguished School this year.

The positive impact and involvement of Newhart students in the community is another factor that Jones believes led to this honor. Jones calls the community service done by students, particularly those participating on the Peer Assistance and Leadership team and Associated Student Body, “outstanding.” Students are involved in many community functions including the annual Red Ribbon Week, Chalk Festival, and art events.

Two Middle Schools among 97 Best in California

 

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO—Two local middle schools have been selected as 2011 California Distinguished Schools, making this the 55th and 56th time Capistrano Unified School District sites have received the award since 1992.

          Ladera Ranch and Newhart middle schools are among 97 exemplary California public middle and high schools selected for the state’s prestigious award program, it was announced today.

          “We are pleased that Ladera Ranch and Fred Newhart are joining our cadre of National Blue Ribbon and California Distinguished Schools,” Superintendent Joe Farley said. “On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I want to thank the extraordinary staff members, talented students, and dedicated parents at both of these middle schools for their hard work. Being named California Distinguished Schools illustrates the high level of academic performance and growth taking place at these two schools and throughout the Capistrano Unified School District.”

          Ladera Ranch and Newhart are two of seven Orange County schools to win the award and CUSD is the only district in the county to have more than one school selected. This is the second time each of the schools have received the California Distinguished School award. Newhart first won in 1992-1993 and Ladera Ranch received it in 2006-2007.

          A school’s eligibility for the award is based on its Academic Performance Index (API) and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) results, which are the state and federal accountability models. Schools earning the title agree to share their Signature Practices with other schools and serve as mentors to other educators who want to replicate their work.

          At Ladera Ranch, the API has grown from 822 in 2007 to 914 in 2010. Principal Karen Gerhard said the school’s success is found in the Ladera Ranch community.

          “This is an honor because we continue to do what’s best for kids,” Gerhard said. “This is a hard-working community. Parents, teachers, students and staff all contribute to what we do. We couldn’t do it without them.”

          Gerhard said the school’s teachers and staff have embraced the use of technology and data to identify student needs and find ways to address them, which has helped make the school’s signature practices effective.

          Gerhard said the “Pyramid of Intervention” and “Professional Collaborative Practices” have been critical to the instructional program. With the intervention model in place, students are strategically targeted for intervention. All students are able to take advantage of green level support programs, while students who need targeted interventions are slated for yellow. The red level interventions are intense and strategic programs designed for students who may struggle the most.  

          “We are constantly looking at each child on an individual basis and constantly making adjustments based on his or her needs,” Gerhard said. “We have a lot of systems in place to identify kids who need support and finding ways to provide it.”

          At Newhart, the school’s API has risen from 836 in 2007 to 888 in 2010. Principal Jeff Jones credited the hard work performed by his teachers, students and parents for the school’s success.

          “Winning this award is amazing,” Jones said. “It validates all of the hard work our teachers are doing. The entire community has worked hard to accomplish this success.

          Among the signature practices highlighted by Newhart are its “Collaboration” for teachers and “Intervention” program for students. Teachers collaborate by using data to make instructional decisions. Students are supported through interventions that come directly from the collaborative efforts of teachers.

          “This is an amazing school with involved, caring parents, dedicated teachers and students who have shined,” Jones said. “Our community supports our efforts to hold the students accountable and teach them that success needs to be earned.”

          The 2011 California Distinguished Schools will be honored during an awards ceremony and dinner at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim on May 20.

Invitations to take the Criteria Based OLSAT will be mailed home the first week of December 2010. Parents who do not receive an invitation for their child to take the Criteria Based OLSAT may nominate their child to take the Fee Based OLSAT on a designated Saturday in February. *For information regarding the CUSD GATE testing criteria, please refer to the CUSD GATE website at http://gate.schoolloop.com.
