    Friday nights on the dance floor? With bright clothes and glowing all night, students and teachers had a great time at the back to school glow dance! With good music and fantastic dance moves we were able to whip through the night! Mrs. Prince and Ms. Canup had fun doing the footloose as soon as they heard that first note! “It made me feel old,” Ms. Canup said. Seventh grade student, Hailee Scroggins states, “It was really bright and colorful, and it was glamorous!” Skylar Bernard, an eighth grade student, states, “It was so great and I loved it!” Students and teachers can’t wait to have another school dance!

    We’re glad to see that Mrs. Bothel is healthy and so is her baby. While she came to visit Elm Grove, we got a chance to talk to her about her new life. Mrs. Bothel says that being a parent is rewarding and it’s the best thing that ever happened to her. Mrs. Bothel’s baby is a boy and his name is MJ; he has baby blue eyes just like his mom. We’re glad to see her back at the grove and especially happy to welcome our new Elm Grove Eaglet.

Now that the school year is underway, parents may be wondering where is School Loop and what is this talk about Illuminate?

 

Illuminate is an all-in-one student information system that is replacing several systems throughout the district, including the School Loop Parent Portal. The addition of Illuminate will enable Bossier Schools to offer you the most updated information on your child while still encompassing the features you liked about School Loop and more, including email alerts for parents opting to set up notification messaging using the Home Connection Portal.

 

Once activated, parents will have the ability to log in and be more actively engaged in their child’s education wherever there is an Internet connection. Because teachers’ grade books, absentee reports and other information are entered in this student information system, Illuminate will enable parents to see their child’s assignments, homework, grades and schedule. Throughout the year, additional information will be added, such as a student’s attendance and tardy status in real time, test scores and transcript data.

 

There are other benefits as well. If a parent indicates their child has allergies or a medical condition, teachers will have that information; state test scores from past years will be available; and families with multiple children in Bossier Schools will be able to view each student’s profile without needing to create separate accounts.

 

Information about how to create an Illuminate parent portal account will be sent home with your child soon. As you can appreciate, merging student data from the previous system to a new one, the need for it to be an exact match, and entering new student information is cumbersome and taking longer than we anticipated. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

 

Once it is up and running, we feel confident you will be more than pleased by the new system and the wealth of information available at your fingertips.

NEWS RELEASE
SHERIFF WHITTINGTON ADDRESSES ISSUE OF YOUNG PEOPLE
SENDING OR RECEIVING NUDE PHOTOS OR VIDEOS
Bossier Sheriff Julian C. Whittington
Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office


We have received complaints from parents in recent days about a serious issue involving children. Young people are sending or receiving nude or partially nude photos to and from their peers on their cell phones, computers or social media sites. My office currently has ongoing cases involving youth in our area that could result in criminal charges and arrests. As the chief law enforcement officer of Bossier Parish, I am deeply concerned with this trend and want to inform parents and young people of the seriousness of this type of behavior and its consequences, which could ultimately land a child in jail.
I am working closely with the District Attorney’s Office, Bossier Parish School Board and city law enforcement agencies to ensure we are pro-active in addressing this issue. We know this type of behavior is not unique to Bossier Parish, but rather an issue that is rampant throughout our nation. Our school resource officers have informed me that it has been escalating in our schools over the past few years.
Over the upcoming days, we will take actions to educate children and parents why sending nude photos or videos of themselves, other young people or possessing any nude photo can have devastating consequences. Not only have young people been exploited, violated or embarrassed, but we have seen across the nation where these actions have led to suicide, a truly horrific end of a precious life. These actions are also criminal and can lead to charges of sexting and pornography involving juveniles, which can, and will result in jail time.
BOSSIER PARISH SHERIFF’S OFFICE
POST OFFICE BOX 850
BENTON, LA 71006
JULIAN C. WHITTINGTON
SHERIFF
(318) 965-2203
We will work together to combat this type of behavior among our young people in an effort to keep any more kids from getting in trouble, and with the support of parents and guardians, we can succeed. In addition to this letter to parents, our school resource officers and Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives will reinforce to students about the seriousness of this matter. The school system will also use its websites and School Loop to inform parents and students of this problem. My hope is this will prompt a discussion between parents and their children.
Here are some tips parents can take to help prevent sexting and child pornography.
 First, be their parent and get involved in their lives. Talk to your children, get in their business, and if you know they are engaging in sexting or child pornography, let them know you will not tolerate this type of activity.
 Monitor your child’s use of their cell phones or computers. Set boundaries on their cell phone use or even limit the number of texts that can be sent per month.
 Teach your children about the dangers associated with sexting and child pornography, such as criminal charges they could face.
 Encourage your children NOT to respond to or forward any sexting messages or videos they receive.
 Help your children understand that once they post a photo or video to a social media site or send to a ‘friend’, the photo or video is now out there for others to see, even if they delete it from their own source.
 Sexting may be a way your child is crying out for help. Again, it goes back to the first point – be their parent and get to know what is going on in their lives.
 If your child or another child you know is a victim of sexting or child pornography, please contact your local law enforcement agency to report it. Don’t delay.

Dear parents and students,

During the month of February, eighth grade students in Bossier Parish Schools will be given the opportunity to participate in the nation-wide Junior Achievement Groundhog Job Shadowing Day.  Elm Grove Middle School has chosen to participate on Monday, February 4, 2012.  This is an excellent chance for our students to explore the world of work and to include our parents in our school day.

We are encouraging all eighth grade students at Elm Grove to take part in this activity.  Students who participate will be excused for the entire school day on February 4, 2012.  Students and parents are responsible for making arrangements for students to spend that day at a workplace of choice.  Students may shadow their parents at their worksite or make arrangements to learn about another career. 

In order to be excused for the school day, students must complete a worksheet about the career they shadowed.  Part of the worksheet includes interview questions that should be completed while at the workplace.  Students will return completed worksheets to their Journey to Careers teacher on either Tuesday, February 5 or Wednesday, February 6.

We are hoping this will be both educational and fun for our eighth graders as they continue to learn about the many career opportunities available to them.  As always, we appreciate your involvement with the students and our school program.  Elm Grove had a 99% participation rate last year.  We are looking forward to another successful Groundhog Job Shadowing Day.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

By Tori Feaster

Elm Grove’s FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) Organization is to the Louisiana Tech vs. Texas A&M football game on Thursday, August 30th. The tickets are only five dollars and they pay for admission, a burger, and transportation. They are also able to attend a rally before the game. All that for just $5, you can’t beat that! Elm Grove’s FCA organization has a lot of events similar to this one coming up. So if you missed out this time, be sure to participate next time! This year, the FCA officers have decided that there should not be sign-ups for FCA. This is because last year, students didn’t come to the meetings because they forgot to sign up or pay the five dollar admission fee. This year, they have no excuse! Anyone is allowed to come to the meetings anytime! You may purchase an Elm Grove Middle School FCA spirit shirt later in the year. The price is to be determined.

Our effort at Elm Grove Middle School is to insure the safety and security of students in the classroom and school environment and to teach and encourage life long organizational skills that will provide success for students at school and in future endeavors.

The published school supply list does not include a backpack. A backpack is not necessary.  However, students are permitted to have backpacks, but as was stated last year the size and weight of the backpack will be regulated.  Students MUST use the 3 ring zippered binder in all classes with the provided planner in an organized manner as part of every class requirement.  The backpack that is brought to school must fit completely under the student desk in a classroom as is necessary for safety and security for students and teachers to move about the room.  Teachers will conduct binder checks that may include assisting students in cleaning out backpacks to prevent loss of important papers and the clutter of unnecessary items. 

If you chose to use a backpack, please make sure you choose one that fits these specifications. 

Have a great summer.

When I take the Students of the Year to Lunch we have a questioning session.  The question the almost always gets asked of me is “What do you like best about being a Principal?”

I tell them, I like being in charge.  I like being able to make decisions that are good for the students and the school.  Decisions like spending as much money as possible on computer labs and technology for classrooms.

One of the things that I decided on with the help of the leadership team was the use of zippered binders.  We decided to require all students to have a zippered 3 ring binder in order to use their planner and stay organized.  This works very, very well for organization, but when students sit on their binders, stand on their binders, throw their binders in a corner at lunch, hit each other’s binders, the binders tear and rip.  When duck tape does not save them, it is time to look for a solution. It is also important to know when it is necessary alter a decision. 

This is how we are modifying things.   Students are still required to have a large, 2-3 in 3 ring binder and must use the sections and the planner as designed at the start of the year for all classes and that is evaluated in ESS. If a student’s binder is in good condition, they should continue to use it. If students want to carry that binder in a small backpack, they may do so.  The key word here is small.  We have 75 more students than last year, we have classrooms with 30 – 33 desks in them. There is not room for 30 – 33 students each with a big, large backpack.  Students are not to carry large, heavy backpacks.  Further, please understand that if students throw, drag, stand on, or otherwise misuse a backpack, it will not hold up any better than the binder they have now. 

Please be very clear, students must have ONE, three ring binder that can hold dividers for each class and the planner as a requirement for all of their classes including ESS. Large heavy backpacks will not be allowed. Students with overstuffed backpacks will be talked to, and reminded, eventually required, to keep all unnecessary materials at home.  Parents also need to understand that backpacks that are thrown, sat on or otherwise misused will also tear and be unused-able.  I hope that this compromise solution is helpful and that parents and students will continue to be supportive of Elm Grove Middle School policies.

 

Mrs. Johnson, Principal

We understand that 3 ring zipper binders have been hard to find now that school supplies have been pulled from the retail shelves.  We are working with Office Max in Shreveport to make sure new binders are available to you in case your child is in need of a new binder. Office Max keeps these binders in stock and even offers a protection plan for $2.99.  If the rings or the zipper malfunction, Office Max will replace the binder. 

Another option for binder purchases is caseit.com.  We have found that these binders offer the most stability and are easier for students to carry as it contains a strap.

It has come to our attention that the products may or may not have a item # on them making it difficult to know who ordered what.  On the original order form, there was only a place for NAMES, ITEM #’S, AND PRICE but NOT THE DESCRIPTION OF THE ORDER.   We will have copies of the order brochure available to students in the morning for them to bring home which will help in knowing what item goes to what person.   Sorry for any inconvenience and once again, thank you for making this fundraiser a huge success.

                Have you always wanted to play soccer with Cabosa, but didn’t like the drive to Shreveport for practice?  Well here’s the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.  Cabosa is now forming a Bossier league.  The purpose is to encourage kids to play in the recreational league based on their middle school.  Kids are encouraged to form from the school, that way they would be playing with kids they know and go to school with.  THIS IS NOT A SCHOOL FUNCTION.  The teams will be combined 7-8 grade.  We would like to have a separate boys and girls team.  The teams will be coached by volunteers as schools do not have resources for school coach.  (We do not currently have a volunteer coach for the boys team, so if interested, please let me know.) If we do not have enough to form an Elm Grove team, we can combine with another Bossier Parish school in order to have enough kids to form a team.  We want this program to be developmental, increasing skills and creating opportunities for higher levels of competition at the high school and club level. 

                Cabosa has extended its Spring 2011 deadline in order for us to establish our teams.  The cost is $90.00 per player, which includes uniform, insurance, playing fields (Cargill in Shreveport) and officials for games.  The payment of $90.00, along with your application and a copy of your birth certificate must be turned in to me on Friday, January 21.  Bring it to me at the snack window. 

                If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call at (318) 747-0433 or (318) 773-4920.   Hope to see you on Friday with your paperwork!!!

Elm Grove Team Manager

CABOSA is hosting a soccer interest meeting for our parish athletes.  The meeting will be Saturday, January 15th at 1:00 in the Cope Middle school Cafeteria.  These teams would be sanctioned by CABOSA and insured through them.  The goal of this meeting is to allow Bossier soccer kids to play together on one “school” type team.  This league would be open to sixth, seventh, and eighth boys and girls.   The teams would then be able to practice in Bossier versus going into Shreveport. For more information, please contact CABOSA or Cope Middle School.

Congratulations to Mrs. Robbie Fisher for her retirement of 35 years of service to Elm Grove Middle School and South Bossier.  Mrs. Fisher was a mentor, friend, colleague, and wonderful confidant to so many people.  In her 35 years of service to Elm Grove Middle School, she dedicated her life to providing guidance and direction to the students of Elm Grove.  Not only did she fully support "athletics" at Elm Grove but strongly encouraged the "academic" side of education.

On September 22, 2010, Elm Grove was proud to announce the naming of our annual scholar athlete award in her honor.  Forever now known as........THE ROBBIE FISHER AWARD.

Each year, a 8th grade student ( 1 boy and 1 girl ) who participates in at least 2 athletic teams and maintains the highest GPA is honored with this award.

Coach Lee's social studies classes held a 7th grade wide contest that required each student to write a short essay/poem about what liberty means to him/her.  Out of over 160 entries the following students were selected as the best:

1.  Kourtney Eastridge ($10 Boardwalk gift card!)

2.  Jeremy Lytle ($7 Boardwalk gift card!)

3.  Larynn Johnson  ($5 Boardwalk gift card!)

 

The winning entry:

Liberty is not just a word.

Liberty will not go unheard.

My freedom she contains,

for she shall always reign.

People die, families cry, for you and I.

We came together with differences set aside.

For we will not cower and hide.

We will make no mistakes,

for those lives they take.

For when the war is over,

we will all be born anew.

That's why we pledge allegiance to the red, white, and blue.

Physical Education Uniform policy

There have been questions and concerns about the P.E. uniform policy that is in place this year.  The P.E. teachers decided on this policy before the move to the new location.  Several other schools, including Parkway High School, sell P.E. uniforms on site.  An agreement was made with Steadman’s Sports Center for our P.E. staff to order P.E. uniforms in advance, and in bulk, at a whole sale rate.  The uniforms are then sold at Elm Grove Middle School for the retail price that Steadman’s would charge and the difference is used to support the P.E. program that is in need of updated equipment. Steadman’s will not sell the P.E. uniforms at their store because they are available at our school.  Students are not required to buy the P.E. uniform that is sold here.  They may get the appropriate red or gray T-shirt and red shorts from any athletic department store to wear for P.E. class.  There is no distinction made if a student buys the uniform from the P.E. teachers or from any local store.  They are required to have a P.E. uniform for class, either the one sold here, or one that is the appropriate color, that can be purchased elsewhere.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions.

What's the oldest form of torture known to man?  That's right- it's sleep deprivation!!!  On Friday, March 5th, 107 6th grade, ready, responsible, and respectful EG Eagles, along with 27 wonderful chaperons will have an educational, action-packed adventure ALL NIGHT LONG at the Sci-Port Convention Center, 820 Clyde Fant Parkway in Shreveport.  Check-in time for dinner (prepaid) is 5:30.  All other campers should arrive between 6:00 and 6:45 PM.  Parents or guardians should walk their campers in the door to check them in.  If campers didn't prepay for dinner, they should dine before their arrival.  No other food or drinks will be sold at Sci-Port and none may be brought into the Center.  Sci-Port will serve a late-night snack and breakfast to everyone attending.  All campers should bring a toothbrush, toothpaste, and pillow, along with either a sleeping bag or a blanket.  DO NOT bring a change of clothes.  Everyone will go home in the same outfit that they wear to the camp-in.  Pajamas or sweat suits are a good choice; (no shorts or hats) just try to be comfortable.  Campers may also bring a camera, as much as $25 to spend at the gift shop (not required), and a cell phone, but should keep money and valuables in their pockets.  If campers choose to leave their phones at home, (a wise choice) they may have unlimited use of Ms. Wendt's cell phone (268-5543).  Parents may also use this number to contact anyone at the camp-in.   All campers must be picked up by 7:00 AM.  There are spaces left for any 6th grade student who still wants to go, but dinner is no longer available.  The cost is $50.00 cash.  Parents, we had more than enough chaperons sign up, but would love to have more of you attend.  For more information, please call Ms. Wendt at 549-6547 or 894-2533 before 8:00 PM.

He will take a written exam to see if he qualifies to be one of 100 contestants in the State Bee which will be held Friday, April 9 in Baton Rouge.

Meagan Crews and Ali Kelly each answer 6 out of 7 questions correctly in the preliminary rounds, which is almost unheard of.  Kayla Bass, a 6th grader, was the official score keeper. Thanks to all who participated. They will be honored at the Academic Assembly at the end of January.

The winning essay by Kennedy Glenny:

     My freedom is handed to me by the gallant soldiers who put their lives on the line for me, for you, for everyone.  My father is one of these soldiers.  He has participated in Desert Storm, Desert Shield, Operation Northern Watch, Horn of Africa, and more.  My mom was strong for me, but we never knew if he would come home.  Every American family in the military has this fear that we share.  Think about how lucky we are.  There are kids in other countries, like North Korea, who have nothing like we have.  All we think about is cell phones, computers, and popularity.  Think if that was taken away.  If your freedom to express yourself was all of a sudden gone.  I thank you for everything.  The young men and women who have died for me to live in my independence and my FREEDOM.
