Where Faith and Learning Grow Hand-in-Hand
November 5, 2012
Dear families,
Eating God’s Food
With technology developing at a record pace and kids
mastering iPads before they’re even out of diapers, it’s
more important than ever to instill the love of reading in
our children. The importance of getting kids to develop a
love for reading early on often correlates with a love for
learning, a passion for lifelong reading, and so many other
positive traits that ultimately lead to the empowerment
needed for success.
The Bible says your body is the "temple" of God. In
1Corinthians 3:16-17 it says, "Don’t you know that you
yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in
you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy
him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple."
Look around your home. Do you have a collection of
literary gems? Do you have more books than toys? The
library is always a great place to find wonderful books,
which we hope you frequent at least every other week—a
ritual which many families start before children could even
walk. Look for and share these books with a positive
message with your child soon:
A Bad Case of the Stripes by David Shannon
All I See is Part of Me by Chara Curtis
An Awesome Book of Thanks by Dallas Clayton
Have you Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud
There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world.
Love of books is the best of all.
— Jacqueline Kennedy

SPRINGBOARD
There will be no chess on Wednesday, November 7, due to
minimum day schedule. Classes will resume next
Wednesday, November 14.
If your child was not able to participate in
Springboard science because conflicting activities such as
soccer they are in luck! As soccer games end in the coming
weeks, students can join science for the remaining last
sessions of the Fall 2012 semester (session dates 11/13,
11/27, 12/4). Classes are $10 per session. Please contact
Kim Boyer ([email protected] for registration
information). Thank you for continuing to let us know if
your child will not be able to attend their Springboard class
on a particular day.
How are teaching your children to treat their "temple"? Are
you providing real and perfect food God made for
complete nourishment or only food products that were
created by man?
1. Eat FRESH vegetables and fruits. Canned, frozen or
processed foods should not make up more than 15% of any
meal.
2. Whole grains should make up 25% of one meal per day.
3. Seeds, nuts and berries, oh my! Great for munchies and
between meal snacks.
The health of Americans is the worst ever in history. We
have created a culture that believes that a well-balanced
meal consists of chicken nuggets, french fries and a soda.
According to the most recent statistics released by the
Centers for Disease Control, an estimated 64% of adults,
age 20 years or older are considered overweight or obese.
Whole foods, the way God intended it to be, should be
consumed for our own sake. Remember, wellness and
good health is a choice. Honor your body and God’s
"temple". Parents are discouraged from bringing fast food
for their child’s lunch each day. Please do not bring soda
for your child to consume at lunch.
Research on the relationship between a healthful lifestyle
and academic achievement supports this equation:
good nutrition + exercise = optimal learning.

IOWA Assessment Results
November Focus of the Liturgy
This is the first year for students in grades 2-8 to take these
tests. Previously, students took the Iowa Tests of Basic
Skills (ITBS). The Iowa Assessments are different from the
ITBS in many ways, especially in how results are reported.
The Gospel readings for the Sundays in November 2012, are
taken from St. Mark and St. John and are from Year B, Cycle
2.
November 4 In this Gospel Jesus tells the Scribes to love
your neighbors as yourself.
November 11 The Gospel relates the parable of the widow
and the coins.
November 18 This Gospel is about the second coming of
Christ.
November 25 This Gospel is about the exchange between
Pilate and Jesus.
The Iowa Assessments will provide valuable information
about the yearly academic growth of students. It will also
provide strong indicators of college readiness. Student
academic growth is monitored based on something called
a "standard score". The National Standard Score, describes
performance on a continuum from kindergarten through
high school. The continuum is based on scores from testing
thousands of students and determining where students at
certain grade levels fall within a range.
The Iowa Assessments also include a National Percentile
Ranking . This compares a student's score with others in
the nation in the same grade who took the test at the
same time of year. Individual student results will be
st
included with 1 Trimester Report Cards. Parents should
contact teacher with questions or concerns.
