Dear Parents/Guardians of Elizabeth Morris students,

I hope everyone is ready for the month of April!!  We have several exciting planned activities for your child to participate in during this last month of program!!  I hope you can share in some of the fun with your child while on zoom with us participating in the presentations and art projects!  Again, I thank you  parents and family who have helped us by making sure your children are logged on with us!   We appreciate all of your support this school year.  We have participated in so many fun activities this month!  For the month of April, I will be reaching out to you to drop off some more materials for your children to use during our After School Program on April 6th. 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

During this month of March, we had a busy schedule!!  Some of the activities that I hope you heard about us doing are:  Craft Days, Learning about finances with the Simmons Presentations, Ms. Andrea lessons, Ms. Rima nutrition lessons, Up, Up, and Away Mad Science Presentation, and All About Owls Presentation by World BIrd Sanctuary.  We also had a lot of fun during our Family Night Show Me the Money.  The banks turned out fabulous!!  Mr. Smith and Co. has brought us a lot of motivation to pursue our future careers no matter what road they may lead us on, academically or in fine arts.

During April, Mrs. Parker and Mrs. Hammers have several creative craft projects planned.  Mrs. Parker’s group will be working on Creative movements with their new supplies delivered on Tuesday the 6th of April!  Mrs.Hammers’ group will be using their Creative Minds while learning about animals and completing several craft projects.  I also have a few fun activities planned for them.  We have another presentation by Mad Science called SOunds of Science on the 14th.  Imaginary Arts will be joining us to do 6 different art projects.  Ms. Andrea will be joining us twice a week to work on our skills.  Ms. RIma and SImmons bank will continue to join us to learn about money and nutrition.  Mr. Smith and Co. have been showing us how talented so many people are musically and theatrically too.  They will continue to join us on Wednesdays.

During this month of January, I saw several fun activities where the children were engaged  and being creative.  During Science they were creating structures out of marshmallows and toothpicks.  I saw Snow globes created during Winter Artists!  I also saw a lot of dancing and singing going on this month connecting to their academics.  Ms. Andrea had some great lessons and discussion about what to do if there are distractions while trying to learn. I also observed the children playing an Emoji Movie guessing game!  They knew more movies than I did!!  

During February, we will continue to work on our Academics (Math, Science, Reading, and Writing) and Enrichment activities(Winter Artists & Little Engineers).  We are also working on our part for the 21st Century CCLC Black History Presentation!   We will continue with our Nutrition class and our class with Ms Andrea.  We also plan on having some fun virtual Field trips to participate in this month with Storytime with Ms. White, Movie Virtual Field Trip Day, and A Dinosaur Exploration!  We are hoping to have another family event during the month of March.  I will send out details as they are finalized to you!

Dear Parents/Guardians of Elizabeth Morris students,

We have participated in so many fun activities this month!  Besides all the hands-on activities that Mrs. Parker and Mrs. Hammers prepare for Academics and Enrichment, we went on a virtual trip to Plimouth Plantation to learn about Native Americans.  We also watched 2 musical performances one was about Lewis and Clark and the other was about Jazz Music.  We also participated in a Magic House Trip called Passport to Kenya!  We also got to meet our calf that we adopted for the school year.  Her name is Belle.  She was born on Oct. 28, 2020.  She already weighs in at 129 lbs.  I am attaching a few pictures that I was able to capture of the fun!

During this month of November, I saw several fun activities where the children were working on their book, I Save Money.  I also saw some great work on Multiplication and Science Experiments.  Ms. Andrea has still been visiting us for special lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We also have had another weekly guest speaker teaching us about Nutrition. 

During December, we will continue to work on our Academics and Enrichment activities.  These activities are called Creative Arts and Crafts and Future Programmers of America!  We will also have some fun virtual Field trips to participate in this month to a zoo and outer space!  On December 16th your children will have a special performance to share with you live on zoom!

For the month of November, the following students had Perfect Attendance!!

DeMario Cole, Demetriona Cole, Keelen Fulton,

 Karsyn Long, Malankai Beaver and Jay’Lah Peetee

Dear Parents/Guardians of Elizabeth Morris students,

We have participated in some fun activities this month!  Besides all the hands-on activities that Mrs. Parker and Mrs. Hammers prepare for Academics and Enrichment, we went on a virtual trip to Disney World in Florida.  We watched a musical performance about African Drummers and Dancing.  We also participated in a Magic House Trip called Your Vote Counts!  I am attaching a few pictures that I was able to capture of the fun!


During this month of October, I saw several fun activities where the children were working on their book, Chrysanthemum.  I also saw some great work on Place Value and Multiplication.  I am sure you saw the creations of the color wheel that they did in Science.  I also heard some great stories being written as a whole class, one example was of an animal band!  Ms. Andrea has still been visiting us for special lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Sadly, we only have 1 more week of our current Enrichment activities of learning how to take care of pets and learning how to box!
 

We tried to catch you at conferences if you attended in person.  I also called several parents to come pick up the 21st Century supplies.  If you have not done so, you will be able to do so at EMorris after Nov. 9th.  I will let you know if you still need to pick up these supplies.

During October, we will continue to work on our Academics and then begin our new Enrichment activities.  These activities are called Creative Arts and Crafts and Future Programmers of America!  We will also have some fun Music performances and another virtual Field trip to participate in this month!

For the month of September, the following students had Perfect Attendance!!

DeMario Cole, Demetriona Cole, Keelen Fulton, 

Trust Dugan, Marqevea Lewis-Works, Kharrie Shelby, Kimber’Lynn Tally

Dear Parents/Guardians of Elizabeth Morris students,

Yesterday, we had the fun of going on our 1st Virtual Field Trip.  We went to visit the Cahokia Mounds in Collinsville, Illinois.  I have attached a picture from what we saw in the video.  The children were excited to experience a different type of activity.

 

I want to thank all of the parents/guardians who have assisted our 21st Century students to complete the required PreTest for Math, Reading, and Writing.  I know it was very frustrating for several kids, but having them complete them by his or her self will help us know what he or she can do.  These test will help us curve our lessons to help your child improve their Academic abilities.  Also, don’t worry, we won’t have to do the tests again until the end of the school year.

During this month of September, I saw several fun activities for the teachers and students to get to know each other happening.  I also saw how excited they were when Ms. Andrea visits us for special lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Several of our Group B children have been sharing their knowledge about taking care of animals from their group.  Group A has also shown me some of their Boxing skills.

I was informed that several of our students’ have not picked up their free supplies. I believe that the buses brought them to your house with the Dinner and Snacks. Please take advantage of these materials that 21st Century has purchased to help the children be successful during our program.  There are some math manipulatives, books, markers, pencil, etc.  If you still need to receive these supplies you will need to go to the Board Building Annex Monday through Thursday between 8 AM to 4 PM.  Only children who are registered for 21st Century can receive these supplies.  If you have other children in the district between K to 12, we do have openings still at most schools.  

Supply Kit Pick up Schedule

9-14-2020

Dear Parents/Guardians of Elizabeth Morris students,

We have been busy planning a great first month of 21st Century After School Program for your child.  I know that this new way of having Program will take a little adjustment for our teachers and our students, but I do believe we can make it a success.  Through our program, we will be providing academic lessons and support, providing fun and exciting enrichment opportunities, and help with any assignments not completed.  We are lucky to have returning staff members as teachers and paras.  These staff members are:  Mrs. Parker who will be teaching Science and Math, Mrs. Hammers who will be teaching Reading and Writing, and Ms. Stockett who will be working with all ages but primarily with Second and Third graders.  I am also returning as Site Coordinator for my 4th year at EMorris.  

Our program will start on Monday, September 14, 2020 at 2:15.  At the bottom of this letter is the link for our Zoom meetings.  Every Monday through Thursday, we will use the same zoom link for the kids to join us.  Everyday 21st Century provides a meal and snack for each child in the program.  Since we are not in person for your child to receive these items, the buses will be delivering them starting at 1.  At this time, I do not have the exact route and times, so please keep an eye out for the bus to be arriving in front of your address that you put on the registration form starting on Wednesday.  For Monday and Tuesday you will need to pick up your child’s meal and snack from Choice, High School, or Wirth Middle School between the hours of 12:30 to 3.  On Wednesday they will try to begin delivering the meals to your house.  At the beginning of program we will have our snack item while teachers are taking attendance, so even though your child will be eating, have them log onto Zoom so we do not miss them.  At 5:00, we will have closing games and activities while your child is eating their meal.

For the first week of program, we may need your assistance in helping your child find their 21St Century Google classroom.  Through this app, we will be placing all of our activities, newsletters, announcements, and links for field trips.  At the beginning of the program, we will have some activities to help us see where each child academically is.  These results will help us see where your child is and how best we can help them improve their academic success.

21st Century has purchased some supplies to help the children be successful during our program.  There are some math manipulatives, books, markers, pencil, etc.  In order to receive these supplies you will need to go to the Board Building Annex during one of the following days.  Only children who are registered for 21st Century can receive these supplies.  If you have other children in the district between K to 12, we do have openings still at most schools.

April Newsletter

Dear Parents/Guardians,

During the month of March the kids prepared for the Parent Showcase.  They were so excited to see all of you that were able to attend.  We appreciate your support and time you gave for us.  They also earned a movie day as a reward for doing so well during the Showcase!  Group A designed some fancy hats to go with their drumming performance.  Group B graduated from Character Education when completing their skit.  Group C made some delicious Oreo deserts for us.  Group D created dream catchers, animals, and backgrounds for their animals.

                Coming up in April, we will begin our new Enrichment activities until the end of the program!  Group A will be working with Performing Arts with Mr. Arceneaux.  Group B will be working on Engineering with Ms. Dorsey.  Group C will be working with Fashion Design with Mrs. Parker.  Group D will be learning Spanish with Mrs. Mammen and Mrs. Skaggs.  We will also be going on another field trip at the end of this month!  Ms. Ruby Streate will be returning two times this month to work with the kids on dancing and choreography.

Just a reminder, if you decide to change the way that your child will be going home, I need a written note or a personal email or message.  I cannot go by the word of the child.  If you need to get ahold of me for any reason my district email is defossetjl@cusd187.org.  You can also call the school phone during the day and leave me a message.  That number is 618-332-5500.  During the program I will be in and out of all the classrooms and will not be able to sit by the phone.  The best way to reach me is through email.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

During the month of February, the students have been enjoying several fun activities.  All groups participated in some dance lessons with Ms. Ruby Streate for an hour.  We went on a field trip to the Science Center to investigate how different objects can make music.  We also have been working diligently on our performances/activities for the upcoming 21st Century Showcase on march 14th.

                Coming up in March, we will continue our Enrichment activities until after the Showcase on March 14th!  Then the enrichment groups will change for the remainder of the year.  Group A will be working with Performing Arts with Mr. Arceneaux.  Group B will be working on Engineering with Ms. Dorsey.  Group C will be working with Fashion Design with Mrs. Parker.  Group D will be learning Spanish with Mrs. Mammen and Mrs. Skaggs.  We will also be going on another field trip this month!  Mad Science will be coming this month to create slime with Groups A & B.  Then they will return and work with Groups C & D to solve a mystery with their detective skills.

Just a reminder, if you decide to change the way that your child will be going home, I need a written note or a personal email or message.  I cannot go by the word of the child.  If you need to get ahold of me for any reason my district email is defossetjl@cusd187.org.  You can also call the school phone during the day and leave me a message.  That number is 618-332-5500.  During the program I will be in and out of all the classrooms and will not be able to sit by the phone.  The best way to reach me is through email.

During the month of December, the students have been enjoying several fun activities.  We went on a field trip to Skate City where we learned to skate correctly!  We earned a Movie day for the holidays.  20 Students earned a hot chocolate and cookie reward with me for showing spectacular behaviors!  We also had a Craft Day where we made ornaments, a holiday card, a Christmas tree, and played musical chairs to different songs. 

                Coming up in January, we will start some new Enrichment activities!  Group A will be creating Music with Mr. Arceneaux.  Group B will be working on Character Education with Ms. Dorsey.  Group C will be Cooking with Mrs. Parker.  Group D will be creating crafts with Mrs. Mammen, Mrs. Hammers, and Mrs. Skaggs.

Just a reminder, if you decide to change the way that your child will be going home, I need a written note or a personal email or message.  I cannot go by the word of the child.  If you need to get a hold of me for any reason my district email is defossetjl@cusd187.org.  You can also call the school phone during the day and leave me a message.  That number is 618-332-5500.  During the program I will be in and out of all the classrooms and will not be able to sit by the phone.  The best way to reach me is through email.

We have had a lot of fun here at the 21st Century After School Program so far!!  Group A learned about several different sports, but their favorite game was Simon Says.  Group B learned about several different stretching poses through some Yoga exercises.  Group C created many fabulous art projects that have been brought home each week.  Group D created a scrap book with objects representing all the letters of the alphabet.

We also participated in Spooky Reading Night!  I saw several children enjoying different activities
