In Honor of Veterans' Day from Mrs. Henry's classroom view image
From Mr. Thomas: My 5th grade class made Veterans' Day thank you letters and cards for my life long friend, Jack Berg. Jack has terminal stage 4 liver cancer. I took them to him at the health facility where he now resides. He was thrilled and read each and every one word for word. He then shared them with other veterans who live there. I'm delivering his sincere thank you letter back to the class tomorrow. view image
Winter Weather Is Here WINTER WEATHER IS HERE KEVIN EMSWELLER MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2018 Winter weather is upon us. As we all know, Indiana weather can be very unpredictable. During the winter months you will be hearing of school delays or closings and may even wonder a time or two how those decisions are made. It is rarely an easy decision and one that involves talking with a number of agencies. Attached to this article is a document that serves as a guide that leads to a decisions as to when to delay or cancel classes. You can get the most up-to-date information on Twitter (@TiptonSuperin, @TiptonSchools), Facebook, Tipton Community School Corporation’s website, or any of the local media outlets. Decisions are made as early as possible and usually before 6:00 a.m. With our transportation routes and bus stops, it will be very important to make sure our children have warm coats, gloves, hats, and scarves as they walk to and from the bus stop and while they wait for their bus. Inclement weather will most assuredly result in our buses being delayed by drivers navigating wet, snowy, slushy, or icy roadways. If you have sidewalks in your neighborhood, please encourage your neighbors to keep their walks cleared of snow and ice during these winter months. In addition, please remind your children that while they may see vehicles approaching, the drivers may not see them. Being aware of their surroundings is even more important when the weather is poor. Finally, we would like to have your children in school every day that we are in session. However, we will always respect your decision as a parent when it comes to the safety of your child(ren). Together, we will continue to provide great opportunities for our children and prepare them for their future successes. TSCS School Closing/Delaying Guidelines link is live on the corporation post.
Mr. Friedle, the Tipton Elementary School Counselor, spent time in the 4th grade classrooms teaching emotional management. This program teaches the students strategies to use when they are in the “Flight, Fight or Freeze” mode. Teaching the body how to calm down to natural reactions is a necessary skill for everyone. Emotions impact everyone, and we need to learn how to control them. Students practiced using “I feel” messages and some volunteered to share these messages with the class. The students were then given a creative assignment. For this assignment, students were to be a reporter and interview their parents. Gracie Creamer said these skills are important because “When you grow up, you can teach yourself these tricks, and it won’t be so bad.” view image
