Moscow Charter School

MCS Current News

Dear Moscow Charter School Families,

11/5/2010 -

Students were busy trying to fit five days of learning into three days of classes this week. Monday Morning Meeting was hosted by the kindergarten class and they demonstrated all kinds of things to us including the value of money and the need for daily exercise to reduce our “chicken fat.” Their confidence and theater abilities charmed us all.
 
Tuesday marked the beginning of the “Mileage Club” sponsored by our wonderful PE/Art teacher. All students will have the opportunity to walk the quarter mile around our big field. After completing a mile, students will receive a punch on their foot shaped card.. When the card has been punched all around students will receive a small plastic foot on a chain which can go on their backpack or the lace of their shoe. The miles complete can also add to the marathon efforts of students who are using a pedometer. The program will be active on Tuesday and Friday.
 
It is Fall Back time! Remember to put you clocks back on Saturday night. This should help with the early morning darkness that has prevailed these last few weeks.
 
Monday Morning Meeting will be a special event to honor our Veterans. Boy Scouts from our school will form a color guard to bring in the flag. A gentleman from the VFW will speak. We will be presented a new American Flag from Hawley-Jameson Past 2905.
We will also have a display of uniforms, medals and pictures from World War II.   Please join us and bring along any family members who are veterans.  The press has been invited to come and do a story and take pictures Hope to see you there.
 
Parent conferences were well attended. Parents had a great opportunity to meet individually with teachers regarding their student’s progress. In addition, our PE/Art teacher instituted a standards based report card that will help parents to see the progress that their students are making on National and State guidelines in these subject areas. Mr. Wilkinson used the student lead conference format to conduct his parent conferences. This conference format allows parents to hear directly from their students what they are learning in class.
 
Our Academy Day was led by Dr. Nick Jorgensen, a University of Idaho professor. He focused on the Unites States Constitution. The children had an opportunity to write a Moscow Charter School Constitution which reads:
 
We the people of Moscow Charter School
In order to have more fun, learn and be awesome, will follow these laws and agree to follow these freedoms..
Laws:
  • Everybody must be active
  • No stealing
  • We have the right to vote for our leaders
  • We have the right to –full contact sports
Freedoms:
  • Freedom of the Press
  • Freedom to have lunch outside
     

I am not so sure about full contact sports without full contact sport equipment but lunch outside might be up for negotiation.
 
Have a great weekend
Sincerely yours,
Marie Axman Ed.D.
Principal, Moscow Charter School
