Elementary Principal’s Corner
WOW!!! I can’t believe first quarter has come and gone
so quickly! By now your child is already ¼ of the way
through with the school year! I have seen so many
positive things from your children over the last 10 weeks.
It is amazing to watch them learn and grow.
We have a few new things going on in our school that I
would like to share with you:
Peer Mentoring: The 4th and 5th grade students have
been taking turns mentoring the younger elementary
students in their classrooms. Every 6 weeks there is a
different group of about 8 students assigned to mentor
the younger ones. The “mentors” are helping with math,
reading, tying shoes, zipping jackets, getting along on the
playground, checking out books, etc. The students big
and small really seem to enjoy it!
Staff/Student IDs: Currently, you may notice the staff and substitutes are all wearing
identification badges. Please know that you are always welcome in our building and you are an
important aspect of your child’s education. If you come to visit your child’s classroom, you will
also be asked to go to the office to check in and obtain a visitors’ pass. As we may know who
you are, we do not know everyone and therefore, please do not be offended when staff
members ask you to check in at the office and obtain a pass. This is for the safety and security
of our students. Soon you will see your elementary student come home with an ID of their own.
Have you ever gone to a place of business that would offer a discount if you showed your child’s
student ID? If so, these should come in handy. They are basically just a little keepsake or
“license” for your youngster with the added benefit that you may occasionally run into the
business that offers these discounts. Please note that your child is NOT required to wear this at
school nor is he/she required to have it on their person.
Electronic Message Center: If you have any requests for appropriate school-sponsored or
school-related items to put on the message center, please contact me and I will see that it gets
put up. You can either call or email at: 348-5656 x157 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are very
proud of our students and staff and would like to use this “brag board” as much as possible! I
understand that I may not always remember to put up all the many accomplishments and
activities of our school, so please let me know if there is something you would like to see on the

if you are not home in case of school dismissal earlier than scheduled. During snowy days
buses will also be starting out five (5) minutes earlier in the A.M.
CHILDREN: Do dress warmly for the winter season. Unless extreme weather conditions exist,
you will be going outside during recess.

Tagliarino attended the Leadership Conference in November. The focus of the conference was
all about hands-on environmental stewardship; reduce, reuse, and recycle. The students toured
the Columbia County Recycling and Waste Processing Facility. After touring the facility
students had the task of designing a new use for a paper bag. Students also learned how to
reduce their carbon foot-print. The next meeting focuses on manufacturing. A big thank you to
the Portage Area Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring this great learning experience.

Title I Reading
EXERCISE THE READING HABIT
1. Help your child get the library habit.
Set aside time every week to visit your local public library.
It’s a wonderful FREE resource. While you are there,
check out a book yourself. You’ll be providing a powerful
example for your child.
2. Limit the amount of TV time.
Studies show that kids who spend more than 10 hours a week
watching television do worse in reading than kids whose parents
set limits on TV time. A suggestion would be to give or have kids
earn “TV tickets” good for 30 minutes of TV time. When tickets
are gone, the television is turned off for the week. This same idea
could be used for computer or video game time.
3. Make reading easy.
If TV is within easy reach but books are on a high shelf, your
child will be encouraged to make the easier choice. However, if a
book-shelf filled with interesting books is easily available and TV
time must be scheduled, the book choice will be much more
HELPING YOUR CHILD LEARN TO LOVE
READING WILL PAY OFF BETTER THAN
NEARLY ANYTHING PARENTS CAN DO TO
HELP THEIR CHILDREN DO WELL IN SCHOOL.

Tools For Schools
Dear Parent or Guardian,
As our child’s school nurse, I want to inform you of two serious diseases impacting schools
across the country. Pertussis, also known as “whooping cough”, is a serious disease that
spreads easily and continues to be a problem in the United States among adolescents.
Infection caused by hepatitis A virus is the most commonly reported vaccine-preventable
hepatitis infection in the United States.
In the prevention and control of influenza, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices
(ACIP) has recently recommended that all children aged 6 months through 18 years receive
vaccination against influenza for the 2009-2010 influenza season. Other age and risk groups
previously recommended by the ACIP for annual vaccination against influenza have not
Most babies and young children get shots to prevent pertussis. However, this protection
typically begins to wear off by the time they reach their preteen years. Children are at higher
risk in school settings where they’re in close contact with lots of other children.
There is a booster shot for preteens and teens that adds pertussis protection to the routine
tetanus and diphtheria (Td) booster shot. Adolescents aged 11-18 years should receive a
single dose of Tdap instead of Td for booster immunization against tetanus, diphtheria, and
pertussis if they have completed the recommended childhood DTP/DTaP vaccination series
and have not received Td or Tdap. The preferred age for Tdap vaccination is 11-12 years.
Some states have vaccination requirements for students entering specific grades. Check
with your state’s department of health for more information.
Infection caused by hepatitis A virus is usually mild but, when it is severe, it can cause
children to miss many days of school. You may not be able to tell if your child or a playmate
has hepatitis A. Children who get hepatitis A may have fever, jaundice (yellowing of the skin
and eyes), tiredness, and loss of appetite. Others may not have any signs or symptoms but
can still spread the disease.
Hepatitis A virus is spread through contact with stool, person-to-person contact, or by eating
or drinking contaminated foods or liquids. For children, the first dose of vaccine should be
given at 12 to 23 months of age. Children who are not vaccinated by 2 years of age can be
vaccinated at later visits. Two doses of the vaccine are needed for lasting protection. These
doses should be given at least 6 months apart. Hepatitis A vaccine may be given at the
same time as other vaccines. Hepatitis A vaccine, like any medicine, could possibly cause
problems such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of hepatitis A vaccine causing serious
harm or death is extremely small. Getting hepatitis A vaccine is generally much safer than
getting the disease.
Please refer to the following vaccination checklist to make sure your adolescent child stays
For children ages 11-12 years:

Please contact your child’s healthcare provider soon to discuss how your child can be
protected against pertussis and hepatitis A.
Vaccines are not only for children. Here’s what you can do to help protect yourself.
Adults should consider vaccination for pertussis:
* If aged 19-64, adults should receive a single dose of Tdap to replace the next scheduled
dose of tetanus and diphtheria toxoids vaccine for booster immunization against tetanus,
diphtheria, and pertussis if they receive their last Td dose >10 years earlier and have not
previously received a Tdap vaccine.
* Adults who have or anticipated close contact with an infant aged <12 months should
receive a single dose of Tdap to reduce the risk for transmitting pertussis.
Adults should also consider vaccination against hepatitis A if they have certain risk factors,
* Travel in areas of the world where hepatitis A is common
* Have close, personal contact with an infected person
* Are exposed through food and waterborne outbreaks
* Work in daycare or have contact with daycare children or employees

2009 Cambria-Friesland Elementary World Series
As a long-time tradition, there is an elementary World Series at recess, for
grade K-3. This year was a good one.
It began on October 12th, when Bayleigh Sanborn, the captain of the
Nationals lead his team to a 9-1 victory over Jacob Schreiber’s Brewers.
Both captains are 2nd graders.
The next day, Bayleigh and Eduardo Zavala hit home runs to give the
Nationals a 9-6 win over Milwaukee. That day Mr. Freeman could just not find the plate.
Game 3 of the series brought more runs as the Brewers finally showed their power in a 10-7
win. Looking to go up 3-1 in the series, the Brewers came back with a huge 5-4 win featuring
some great fielding plays by David Owen.
In game 5, the Nationals used their bats again for an 11-4 win, and they now had thoughts of
clinching it all. Brewer Reed Prochnow continued to be hot for his team including hitting a
grand slam, but it just was not enough.
Due to bad weather, the series was delayed a week. But on the 27th of October the Nationals
won the title with an 8-5 win in game 6. That was fine as most of the kids were awaiting the
beginning of Elementary football.
Nationals team members: Bayleigh Sanborn (Capt.), Codey Broesch, Colten DeJager,
Eduardo Zavala, David Owen, Austin (Cannonball) Kanneman, Katelyn Schneider, Talia
Burmania, and Collin Koronkiewicz.
Brewers team members: Jacob Schreiber (Capt.), Andrew DeBoer, Wyatt Owen, Reed
Prochnow, Cole Haney, Jora Hughes, Mason Hughes, Chloe DeYoung, and David Anderson.
Other players: Adam Draheim, Jonathon Schumacher, Maxwell Papp, Coltan Wentland,
Sawyer Quade, Sierra Anacker, Devan Senf, Josef Szytz, Carter Smits, Zachary Deakin, and
