A Week Late Because I “forgot the important stuff.”

Wednesday, March 25, 2015 – World Wide Wednesdays With West Oakview
Thursday, March 26, 2015 – Thursdays With North and East Oakview

EDE #71 for 2014/15
I am really late with the two postings about my time at our elementary schools last week.  There are not any really good excuses as to why they come today rather than last week.  As my  “life-coach” Travis would say “you didn’t remember the important stuff.”

He is right you know.  I let the business of the week come before reflecting on the evidence that our public schools work.

World Wide Wednesdays With West Oakview

As I ran from the my car to the front door it occurred to me that I didn’t want anything to do with getting wet from the gentle rain that was falling.  However, kids see rain much differently.

The first true rain of the spring is a true delight for elementary school children.  You know this rain.  It is the one that falls gently, has no wind blowing, and the temperature is warm enough that you really think that spring has arrived.

Many students stood outside their parent’s cars and worked to pop-up the brightly colored umbrellas.  They really didn’t care if there were only ten steps to be taken between the car and the front door of the school. The joy was in having the umbrella up and visible.  It wasn’t about staying dry.

Another group of kids wanted nothing to do with umbrellas as they would have just been in the way of jumping into the puddles between the bus and the front door.  The pattern was amusing – jump off the bottom step of the bus, look for the nearest puddle, run to the puddle, jump in with both feet, jump out, jump back in, jump out, and then watch the next “puddle jumping Olympian.”

I found out that one kindergarten boy had over 1,000 squirrels in his garage and that they were causing problems so they had to be trapped and taken away.  He also bet me that I wouldn’t know what to do with a 1,000 squirrels in my garage.  He was right.

If you are wondering if any other type of learning was going on at West last Wednesday here is a snapshot of what our kids are learning about in art.  This is an illustration of how learning happens across the curriculum and ties together art, social studies, and math:

  • 4th grade is learning about llamas and creating clay llamas.
  • 3rd grade is learning about rainforest animals and painting.
  • 1st grade is focusing on pizza fractions.
I am not sure when I decided to remember the “important stuff” related to a spring rain but when I left West I walked slowly from the front door to my car.  I looked over my shoulder to see if anyone was watching and then I splashed into the puddle next to my car.

Just for the record, the puddle splash was an accident caused by looking over my shoulder not an intentional moment of joy. I have so much more to learn.
Thursdays With North

Travis, my life-coach, who is now filled with the learning of a first grade year, gave me some really good advice should I ever participate in a state wrestling tournament. As we stood on the sidewalk next to the drop-off area he informed me that he wouldn’t be seeing me the next day because he was headed to the youth wrestling state tournament.  He was going as a spectator because he didn’t win enough matches to be in the finals.

“If you go to the state wresting match to just watch you get to stay all weekend and even stay in a hotel with a pool.  If you go and wrestle you only get to stay until you lose a match and then you have to leave.  Its better to stay the whole weekend.”  I will consider that advice if I every get to the state finals in “walking in the rain and jumping in puddles” competition for those over age 60.

His excitement about the weekend was at a level just below the excitement of the kindergarten teachers.  Last week they took their kids to the Downtown Market.  The hands-on-learning about plants, eating healthy, and the pure joy of riding on a bus creating an experience that was good for each child.  The PTO helped fund this learning.

Author Aaron Zeus was scheduled to be with students Thursday and Friday.  Kids were really excited about meeting and talking with a “real author.”  One 3rd grade girl, who has experienced some tough times adjusting to school, received an autograph, a picture, and a chance to read her story to Aaron.  She told me that all would be framed.

As MSU Coach Tom Izzo said to his players this past weekend “two hours of work and 60 years of memories.”

Our teachers understand this comment and demonstrate it every day.

Meanwhile Back at East Oakview…..

I missed being with the staff and kids at East.  I had to catch a plane to Atlanta for some Policy Governance training.  All weekend I thought about how to interpret Board of Education policies in operational terms – what the policy looks like when it is being met in our schools – and how to make sure the important stuff is monitored.

See you at East this Thursday.

…… and Go Green, Go White!

Sincerely and With Great Respect,

Every Day Evidence #70 for 2014/15 – Our Public Schools Work!

Every Day Evidence #70 for 2014/15

March 230, 2015

Good Morning Governor Snyder, Senator MacGregor, Representatives, VerHeulen, Lyons, Brinks, Dillion, Yonker, Hooker,

and Afendoulis

We are providing factual information to our community members regarding Proposal 1.  While we do not always agree with our Governor and Legislators about their actions regarding public education, we do “step-up” and do the right thing when something benefits the greater community.

Questions for Your Consideration:

  1. Are your legislative actions strengthening the relevance of public education?
  2. Are they building emotional and spiritual relationships between the public school and its community?
  3. Do strong communities build strong public schools?  Do strong public schools build strong communities?
  4. Do you favor local control where public schools are concerned?

Every Day Evidence

Today’s EDE comes from a parent of a student who attends our alternative high school – East Campus High School.  Our staff invests in all students.

“Dear Mr. Paskewicz,

I am the mother of Jeff Barber, who attended East Campus. Jeff will be graduating this May. This is happening due to the encouragement of Mr. Schmidt and the East Campus staff. Mr. Rutherford and Mr. Schmidt never gave up on my son and walked beside him during some difficult and challenging times in his life. Grand Rapids Public Schools had failed Jeff and he was discouraged of ever becoming a high school graduate. The East Campus program and staff deserve recognition and high praises for the their dedication to kids who struggle in tradition school settings. I am forever thankful for the East Campus staff and hope that this email will be shared with them.

Thank you!

Sincerely,

Terri Jennings-Barber”

Fun Fact

If Proposal 1 is approved by voters on May 5, the Northview Public Schools is estimated to receive an additional $202 per pupil ($692,860).  Roads in the Northview community would also be improved.  If Proposal 1 is not approved by voters, our school district will be at risk of losing $593 (the possible increase plus the amount moved out of the School Aid Fund to the general fund to repair roads) per pupil or $2.034 million.  Legislators would need to find the money for road repairs.  Right now the Legislature’s source of revenue has been to move funds out of the School Aid Fund.

Every Day Evidence #69 for 2014/15

Good Morning Governor Snyder, Senator MacGregor, Representatives, VerHeulen, Lyons, Brinks, Dillion, Yonker, Hooker,

and Afendoulis

We are providing factual information to our community members regarding Proposal 1.  While we do not always agree with our Governor and Legislators about their actions regarding public education, we do “step-up” and do the right thing when something benefits the greater community.

Questions for Your Consideration:

  1. If our Governor’s proposal of $75 per-pupil increase on the base foundation is accurate and if Northview receives $65 per-pupil “at-risk” funding, why does $75 + $65 = $70 per-pupil in funding?  $5 per-pupil unrestricted and $65 per-pupil restricted for use with students meeting “at-risk” criteria only.
  2. Are you aware that not one of the 21 KISD school districts will receive a “net-operating revenue” increase of $75 per-pupil in the base foundation grant?
  3. Are your actions strengthening the relevance of public education?

Every Day Evidence

Today’s EDE comes from a Northview High School graduate who is studying music at Central Michigan University.

“Hello,

Yesterday I had the opportunity to watch Northviews Jazz band play at the CMU Jazz festival. I was so proud of their performance, the program is in such high esteem, even the judges I spoke to had so much praise for the band.

While sitting on stage listening to the awards announced reminded me how proud I am to be an alumni of the music program. Northview receives a lot of praise for the band program. Northview always has a very talented group of musicians, I would say they are some of the best high school musicians in the state of Michigan.

I am very thankful and blessed to have gone through Northviews music program. In my second year at CMU, professors still remind me how great of a program I came from. Thank you to Northview for preparing me for my life in music, especially Max Colley Jr. and Greg Wells.

Lucas Keur”

Every Day Evidence #68 for 2014/15
Good Afternoon,

Here is the advanced copy of my April Northview News Superintendent letter.  I encourage you to get all the facts about Proposal 1, mark your calendar for May 5, 2015, and make an informed vote.

As always, feel free to share this email with those in your circles of influence.

Enjoy your weekend.

Northview News – April 2015

Dear Families, Community Members, Staff, and Students,

Do you have Tuesday, May 5, 2015 circled on your calendar?  You may just now be hearing about Proposal 1 and wondering why there would be a ballot proposal asking voters to increase our sales tax to improve Michigan roads.  Last fall, our Legislature voted to put the measure before voters.

Some folks say that Proposal 1 is too complex because it involves Michigan’s roads, Michigan’s schools, the sales tax, and even earned income tax credits for low income families.  If you are a little confused, you are not alone.  Here are some things that I’ve learned about Proposal 1:

  • Proposal 1 increases the sales tax from 6 cents to 7 cents per dollar, bringing our state sales tax in line with other sales taxes paid in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, New York, and Ohio.
  • Proposal 1 substitutes the sales tax on gasoline with a funding stream that directs all tax dollars spent at the pump to transportation purposes.
  • Right now the sales tax on fuel provides more than $630 million per year for schools.Proposal 1 replaces the money devoted to schools and prohibits the Legislature from diverting school aid funds to four-year universities, which have received $200 million or more from the school aid fund each year since 2011.
  • Proposal 1 would also provide additional dollars for schools through the increase in the sales tax, as most of sales tax revenues are devoted to public education.
  • A part of the sales tax on fuel also goes to revenue sharing, to help our local municipalities pay for police, fire and other services. Proposal 1 would replace those revenues through the sales tax increase.
  • Many people fear low-income families will bear the brunt of the Proposal 1 sales tax increase because the one-cent increase would represent a larger portion of their family income.Proposal 1 restores a reduction in the earned income tax credit to offset the burden of additional sales taxes on families at or near the poverty level.
  • Proposal 1 creates stability in the School Aid Fund.Under Proposal 1 the School Aid Fund is projected to get an increase of $300 million. This would mean $202 per pupil or $692,860 to Northview.

Proposal 1 gives tax payers three strong guarantees:

  1. Every penny in state taxes we pay at the pump is guaranteed to go to transportation.We can put an end to the shell game of politics that shift gas taxes to non-transportation purposes.
  2. Every penny in the School Aid Fund is guaranteed in the constitution to fund education where it helps our kids the most: our K-12 schools and community colleges.No more shell games with education funding.
  3. Taxpayers get guarantees from the road builders.If their roads don’t last, road builders pay to fix them, not taxpayers.

There are many resources on the i\Internet published by groups that both support and oppose Proposal 1.  A list of Frequently Asked Questions and a Proposal 1 Fact Sheet may be found on our web page – nvps.net.

Also, I will be holding informational meetings on the following dates.  All meetings will be held in the Board Room at the Northview Administration Building (4365 Hunsberger).  Please consider attending.

Monday, April 13, 2015           4:00 – 5:00 p.m.          Administration Building

Monday, April 20, 2015           7:00 – 8:00 p.m.          Administration Building

Wednesday, April 22, 2015     7:00 – 8:00 p.m.          Administration Building

Monday, April 27, 2015           7:30 – 8:30 p.m.          Administration Building

As you can see, Proposal 1 is complex because it was constructed to make sure schools and municipalities do not suffer because taxes paid at the pump would be dedicated to repairing and maintaining our roads and bridges.

Last year, the House of Representatives passed a road funding package that would divert over $880 million from the School Aid Fund.  In Northview this would mean a reduction of $593 per pupil or $2,033,990 less (loss from possible funding and moving funds out of the School Aid Fund to pay for roads).  This package/idea for road funding is still an option pending the outcome of the May 5 vote.

This proposal has a direct impact on the roads in Northview and on the Northview Public Schools

I am asking you to take time to study Proposal 1, talk with those in your circles of influence, and, above all else, VOTE ON TUESDAY, MAY 5, 2015.

Sincerely and With Great Respect,

Mike

Thursdays With North and East Oakview – It’s What We Do!

March 19, 2015
Arrival Time:  7:35 a.m.

EDE #67 for 2014/15
“It’s What We Do!”

Beautiful morning.  The sunrise cloud pattern and red colors reminded of a salmon filet.  Maybe that is why my walk to the kitchen area was at a quicker pace today.  I didn’t find any bagels with cream cheese and salmon (with thin sliced red onions and capers) but I am not sure that 1st and 2nd grade kids would be excited about that breakfast choice.  In fact when I asked if they had seen any salmon and bagels they rolled their eyes and laughed.

I thought better about launching into the acquired tastes they would develop over the next 20 years.  After all in another 20 minutes they would be doing their daily math fact drill back in their classrooms.  Twenty minutes to a seven year old is a long time.

North was down a substitute teacher for 3rd grade this morning so my first assignment, after pursuing salmon bagels, was to speak with the the other two 3rd grade teachers and the three unified arts (music, art, PE) to see if we could find a solution to cover the classroom for the morning.  My question of “would you be willing to help cover the room?” was the only thing I needed to say. By the time I had retrieved my coat and headed out the door to “drop-off” line duty, they had met and finalized all the plans necessary to take care of the students.

When I offered my thanks, they all simply and elegantly replied “It’s What We Do!”  Kids were divided up and each of the two classroom teachers took them in as if they had been their students since the first day of school.  The Unified Arts teachers dropped into rooms to provide additional support for the “extra” number of children.

It is what they do at North and in all of our schools in Northview.  They are professionals.

No big words of wisdom from Travis this morning.  He did tell me that now that wrestling is over he doesn’t want the Mohawk haircut any more.  I am thankful he didn’t suggest I needed one.  I might have to disagree with the coach on that call.  Well maybe I would think about it if we could die the hair red to match my tennis shoes.

I did learn today that one first grade boy had a dad with a birthday and it is “the same day as Grandpa Sheldon’s birthday.”  When I asked how old his dad was he replied he didn’t know but he was sure he was younger than me.  I didn’t dare ask about his grandpa’s age.
Sincerely and With Great Respect,

Mike Paskewicz, Superintendent

Every Day Evidence #66 for 2014/15

Monday, March 16, 2015

Good Morning Governor Snyder, Senator MacGregor, Representatives, VerHeulen, Lyons, Brinks, Dillion, Yonker, Hooker,

and Afendoulis

Are you aware of what our Governor’s K-12 Budget recommendation means to the school districts in Kent County?  Have you contacted your respective Superintendents?

Questions for Your Consideration:

  1. Our Governor proposed a $75 per-pupil increase to the School Aid Fund.  Are you aware that the “net-operating revenue” increase for Northview is only $5 after reductions to best practice funds (-$30) and elimination of academic performance funds (-$40)?
  2. The proposed “at-risk” funding would bring approximately $65 per-pupil to Northview. Are you aware that the “at-risk funding” can only be used for students meeting specific criteria?
  3. If our Governor’s proposal of $75 per-pupil increase on the base foundation is accurate and if Northview receives $65 per-pupil “at-risk” funding, why does $75 + $65 = $70 per-pupil in funding?
  4. Are you aware that our Governor’s proposed increase to per-pupil results in six Kent County School districts receiving $25 – $55 per-pupil less in budget year 2016?
  5. Are you aware that not one of the 21 KISD school districts will receive a “net-operating revenue” increase of $75 per-pupil in the base foundation grant?
  6. Are you aware that Northview, and other districts, are already implementing “best practices” to increase the percentage of students reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade and that the practices mirror recommendations made by our Governor?

Every Day Evidence

Dr. Mike,

 

I’ve been wanting to write you and tell you how very impressed I am by Dion Charity and the program he oversees.  We are very blessed to have him on staff.

 

In January, to promote National Mentoring Month, we had Dion speak to our mentors about his position as Homeless Liaison at Northview.  I was totally blown away by what he offers to our students.  The depth he goes to when helping the families was amazing.  Hearing him speak about the privilege he has to work with families and aid them trying to get back on their feet was truly inspiring.  He certainly goes above and beyond his job description.  I loved how he has implemented ‘Coats for Cats’, collecting warm winter coats to be able to distribute to students who need them.  What a great idea! He shared his excitement of being able to outfit an elementary child with a winter coat and boots so they could play outside at recess and not have to stand on the concrete.  That is Northview at its best.    I have been part of Northview for 17 years and had no idea our schools offered this.  As I heard him speak, I realized I had never been more proud to be a Wildcat.  We say, ‘We Are Northview’, but this is a perfect example of who we really are.  We take responsibility for each other, we care for each other, and we are family.  We Are Northview.

Thursdays With North and East Oakview – You should have listened better…..

Thursdays With North and East Oakview
Thursday, March 12, 2015
Arrival Time:  7:40 a.m.

“You Should Have Listened Better, You Can’t Wear Them in the Snow”

That’s right Travis.  I thought you said I couldn’t wear my red tennis shoes until the snow was gone and it was officially spring.  I should have listened better.  I’ll have them on next week rain, shine, snow, sleet, or dark of morning will prevent me my wearing the red tennis shoes.

The drop-off line today reminded me of a time many years ago when I visited Dodd’s Record Shop.  There were large 33 1/3 albums, cassette tapes, and newly introduced CD’s.  We really didn’t know what music to pick in what form.  As kids hopped out of cars some had on full winter gear while others had shed snow pants but still had on boots and winter coats.  A couple of kids were seen stuffing their winter hats and mittens into their backpacks.  I even saw a mom wearing a spring coat and shorts.  Spring must be close.  Choose your music, I mean clothing.

One young girl informed me that she would like to be wearing her pink boots rather than “these big old brown ones” but her feet grew and the pink boots don’t fit any more. She also informed me that we only had a few more days of ice that is “good for slipping on.”  I did risk falling and took a good slide on the slick part of the sidewalk on my way into the school.

One of our 4th grade classrooms is currently working on reading and writing historical fiction.  Not bad for nine-year-old students.  I am amazed they can even concentrate with spring parent-teacher conferences going on, the book fair calling their names, and of course the advent of spring.

Meanwhile Back at East Oakview……

My time at East was spent reading to various grade levels.  Things were going really well until I tried out a 3rd grade level joke with 48 kindergarten students.  We were reading “Giraffes Can’t Dance” when one little girl asked me what it meant by “his knees buckled.”  I rose from my seat and demonstrated what a Giraffe looks like when his knees buckle.  They praised me for my imitation.

That’s when I should have stopped but I went on to tell the kids I also could do an imitation of a duck.  I said watch closely, and as 96 eyes stared, I “ducked” as though someone had thrown a shoe at me.  When I asked if they liked my imitation, the immediate response was from a girl in the front row who put her hands under her armpits, creating a pair of wings.  She flapped her wings and started quacking and said “this is a duck.”

That would have been fine but then 47 other little ducks began flapping and quacking.  When I looked at the teacher she just smiled and said “I can’t help you out on this one, you are on your own.”

Great day at both schools.  More evidence that our public schools work…….even when the Superintendent doesn’t know his audience.

Sincerely and With Great Respect,

World Wide Wednesdays With West Oakview
Wednesday, March 11, 2015
Arrival Time:  7:40 a.m.

“It’s Danged Foggy Out!”

Regardless of the weather, at least one child finds it to be the most delightful weather they have ever experienced.  “Mom couldn’t even see the road on the way to school.  It took us a long time.  I thought it was really cool.  Mom didn’t” was the conversation as the fourth grade boy started before he even hopped out of the car.

As I kidded with students and their parents about how much time would be saved by the elimination of the need to dress in snow pants, boots, hats, mittens, and bulky coats there was strong agreement.  “Now if I can just remember to take the back pack off the trunk of the car  before I drive away” was the parent response with a healthy dose of laughter and kiss on her daughter’s cheek.

Do you remember the phrase “seven steps to Kevin Bacon?”  Well in Grand Rapids it is only two steps to someone who knows a person you know.  At West Oakview a second grade boy named Dillion has a mom named Sara that works at a local bank.  The same bank that my dad used for his accounts.  Recently, I had to change some accounts related to my dad’s Trust and sure enough Dillion’s mom helped me and looked forward to my dad’s visits to the bank.  When I told Dillion I met his mom and that she helped me, he broke out into a big smile and said “she told me.”

A four-year-old student at West named Lorenzo shared with me that 4 years ago he was in his mom’s belly.  Not sure why he shared that fun fact but I also found out that his mom was a student at Fountain Elementary when I served that community as their principal.

The development and retention of strong personal relationships is more than important.  Today, I was reminded of that fact twice.

I suggest you consider doing two things tonight:

  • If someone has helped you through a tough situation call them and thank them.
  • If your parents are alive, call them tonight ….. just because.
  • Give your kids a hug and tell them you are proud of them.
  • If your kids are grown, call them tonight….. just because.

Don’t Wait!

Every Day Evidence

Today’s EDE comes from Northview High School Spanish teacher Robin Paredez.

“Good afternoon,

Every year we have wonderful students who do very well in our subject matter, and some select students that go far and above the expectation, but every once in a while, we run across a student who has an unbelievable affinity or interest in a subject matter that just amazes us to no end.  I wanted to let you know of a young man that certainly fits that category who is probably the most accomplished young man in Spanish that I have taught in my last 20 years.

I first had Caleb Jackson three years ago when as a sophomore, he was taking Spanish 4.  By the end of the first semester, we had moved him to AP Spanish where he ended up the year and chose to re-take the entire year of AP Spanish as a junior.  This current year, Caleb has taken an independent study of Spanish literature where he has studied numerous writers and begun a journey of self expression through writing that has often paralleled the format of the authors he has studied.

His writing and overall abilities are phenomenal.  His writing is almost completely error free and he would function easily in any advanced Spanish college course.   He has made friends with numerous Hispanic people and continues to sharpen his skills as his conversations are regularly held solely in Spanish.  In short, we have an amazing young man in our midst and I just wanted to share this information with you so that you too would be aware of his outstanding abilities.

I will forward you a copy of some of his Poetry (which is quite deep) and will certainly place it on our website as evidence of quality work (with his permission)

Thank you for your time,

Sincerely,

Robin Parédez”
