The Iowa Star Conference is hosting speaker Joe Beckman in December. Joe speaks to students and adults all over the world about Leadership, Anti-bullying, Suicide Prevention, and Self-Worth. Presentations will be held at Clarksville and Dunkerton on December 5, and at Meskwaki on December 6.  Students from the Conference schools will be attending one of these presentations.

 

For the last 15 years, Joe has made it his mission to help people reclaim the human connection. Joe’s message touches on the changes taking place in today’s high schools. Student loneliness is at an all time high, while self worth and belonging are at all time lows. Joe explains that the culprit is a lack of human connection. His positive message and high energy presentation connects with students and adults alike. For more information on Joe Beckman, visit joebeckman.com.

 

After hearing Joe’s message in December, the Iowa Star Conference encourages families to sit down with their child and have a conversation at home about these topics. These conversations will be ongoing at school.

12 DAYS OF DRESS UP

IN THE ELEMENTARY

We did this last year and it was a lot of fun for the staff and students. Mr. Youel will be emailing out the list of dress up ideas starting on Dec. 6 th and finishing on Dec. 22. It is totally volunteer to participate or not.

 

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DAY

There will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, December 11.  Staff will be in an all day in-service.

 

HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP

Plans are being made for the

Elementary’s Holiday Gift Shop.  The shop will be open for our elementary students starting Thursday, December 14 through Wednesday, December 20.  Your child’s teacher will send home specific information telling which day your child’s class is scheduled to shop.  Items in the shop range in price from 50¢ to $5.00, but most of the items are $2.00 or less.  If you have items you would like to donate, you may bring them to the elementary beginning December 1.  Thanks for your support.  Proceeds go to pay for our activities and assembly during Redhawk Reading Month in February, as well a supporting the visiting author program.

 

ELEM WINTER PROGRAM

The Elementary Winter Program will be held on Wednesday, December 13, at 1:00 p.m.  The performance will feature the fifth and sixth grade bands, in addition to songs by every grade level from K-6.  Admission for adults is $2.00 and students are $1.00.  Tickets are available at the door.

Students may go home with parents after the program by checking out with the teacher in their classroom. 

 

SCHOOL BOARD MEETING

The next regularly scheduled school board meeting will be held on Monday, December 18 at 7:00 p.m.

 

CLASSROOM PARTIES

All classrooms will be having their Christmas parties on Friday, December 22.  If there is threatening weather, we will move the parties to earlier in the week if necessary.  We will keep everyone informed as we get closer to the dates.

 

UPPER GRADES

FOOD BANK COLLECTION

For quite a few years the upper

elementary(4th -6 th grades) have not been exchanging gifts at

Christmas time. Instead they collect money, food and personal

hygiene supplies for the North Tama Food Bank. So any and all

donations will be greatly appreciated, during this season

of giving.

 

 

WINTER BREAK

Elementary students will be dismissed on Friday, December 22 at 2:20 for the start of the Winter Break. 

There will be no school December 23 through  January 2.  Classes will resume for all students on Wednesday, January 3, 2018.

 

RECESS RULES FOR

COLD AND SNOW

With winter already here it would be good to review recess rules for the cold and snow.  We will stay in if the actual or wind chill temperature is below 10 degrees.  We also will stay in if there is too much ice on the playground.  Students are required to have a winter coat, hat, gloves, snow pants and boots to play on the playground with cold temperatures and snow.  Students will have to sit out recess if they do not have these, it may be inside or outside depending on what they do not have that is required.  Regular clothes get too wet if we allow a student to play in the snow without proper gear.  We have a limited amount of loaner gear to let students use if they forget, but you cannot count on the school having what they need and in the right size.  Please have and leave at school, if possible, these winter items.

North Tama Youth Football (NTYF) is a program designed to teach and develop football skills for kids entering into 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades this Fall.  The foundation for these skills are blocking, tackling and a team concept.  

 

We will compete against other teams in the Marshalltown Football League (MFL) on Saturdays, beginning in September.  ALL games will be played in Marshalltown.  The schedule will be determined by the MFL in August.  The players in 3rd and 4th grade are no longer “weighted”. They will play together regardless of weight.  There will be weight restrictions on who can carry the ball.

 

The 5th grade kids play together and the 6th grade kids play together (regardless of their body weight).

 

We would like to invite your future North Tama Football star to be involved with this program for a “weigh in” and sign up on Thursday, May 11th in the North Tama Complex behind the Varsity Baseball field from 6:30pm -7:30pm.  This will be a preliminary weigh in to determine how many players we have.  The official MFL weigh in will be in July in Marshalltown.  MFL will email the information to you of the dates and times.  The signup sheet is online or I will have some at the weigh in.  Cost is $100 per player which includes all of the equipment with the exception of cleats and a practice jersey.  NTYF does have a “recycled cleats” program as well.  Practice jerseys may be purchased. The order forms will be avalible with the shirt order form.  We will also have a North Tama Youth Football t-shirt and sweatshirts order forms that will be avalible before start of practices.  If you are unable to attend the signup on Thursday please contact me to make another signup arrangement. 

 

The Practices will be held at the North Tama Athletic Complex (East of Traer) in the outfield of the furthest east baseball diamond.  Practice schedules will be determined by the Head Coach of each individual team and subject to change by each Head Coach.    

 

The NTYF program is operated and coached by volunteers.  We are always looking for people who would like to be involved in this program.  Please contact me with any questions Andrew Knaack 319-404-7659 or facebook: North Tama Youth Football.  You may also go the the MFL website at http://gomfl.org/

 

Looking forward to an outstanding season of football!

 

 

Andrew Knaack

This winter the North Tama Softball program has been holding open gyms for all ages.  The girls that have chosen to come have made great strides as they have worked on their ability to handle the ball, master basic softball fundamentals and have kept in the swing of things.  So what’s the next step…

 

Like any activity, softball, takes practice so it’s time to beef up our schedule and get in some good practices to get ready for the summer season, which will be here before you know it.  These spring practices will spend time on throwing, fielding, hitting, and pitching/catching.  While a practice may spend more time on one skill then another we will try and touch on all skills every time.  So if your daughter is truly going to improve, attendance at as many of the practices as she can will make a difference across the board for her this summer come game time.

 

Please see the attached PDF for all of the details about what the spring practices entail, info about our softball coaching staff, and the spring schedule.
