All Around Math

Do you have some spare change and a little time? Here are some activities you can do at home to reinforce your child’s math
skills through money.
Give your child a handful of coins.
Kindergarten: Estimate and then count the number of coins.
First grade: Estimate, count, and sort the coins.
Second grade: Estimate the number of coins and the amount of money, count the coins, and sort them. Total up their value.
Talk about the difference between the number of coins and the amount of money.

Family Liaison Corner

Dear ISL families,

We are joining the New Orleans Public Schools "Strive for 5 Campaign". Strive  for 5 engages families to commit to the first step in school success- regular school attendance. For students in all grades, attendance matters. 


Did you know? 

  • Chronically absent students or students who miss 15-18 days of school, are twice as likely to have to repeat a grade.
  • Missing more than 5 days of school throughout the school year hurts learning and lowers test scores.
  • Students who miss more than 15 days of school are more likely to drop out of school.

Kindness Campaign  

Greetings parents, teachers, and secret agents of ISL-Dixon,

The mission of the Kindness Campaign is to cultivate a culture of kindness. The purpose of this campaign is for all members of the International School of Louisiana-Dixon  to benefit from greater kindness, at a personal and community level. Our goals are to give greater visibility to the many acts of kindness that are already taking place in school, encourage more acts of kindness, and foster community responsibility. Kindness builds trust and helps bring a community together for a common purpose .The Kindness Campaign is a proactive and positive bullying prevention initiative that improves school climate and increases student engagement. Teachers  have reported feeling more connected to their students, seeing more kindness in their classrooms, halls and on the playgrounds, and noticing their students demonstrating more empathic, caring traits. The teachers also noted improved trust, fewer referrals to the office, more respect between students, and a generally more positive school and classroom culture.

  The secret mission for our private detectives, if they choose to accept it, is to secretly perform Random Acts of Kindness. Throughout the school year they will be encouraged to perform Random Acts of Kindness according to the theme of the month, but without the recipients knowing it is them. First they will pick their targets (those who will receive their kindness) then decide on a kind deed or act to perform for them. 

Secret agents, your theme for the moth will be housed in your packets, and you will report back on the assigned date in packet. 
 

The class that completes 100 random acts of kindness according to assigned theme will receive a Mission Complete Reward. You will receive a form to document your random acts in your mission packet. DO NOT BLOW YOUR COVER!

GOOD LUCK ON YOUR MISSION! 

This message will not self destruct….
