The James R.D. Oldham School Improvement Team met on Monday evening, March 22, 2021, at 6pm, virtually. In attendance were D. Brodin, L. Andrade, M. Moon, R. Belasco, D. Turbitt, S. Gaudreau, and D. Peluso. The meeting was one hour in length.Discussed was the progress being made toward accomplishing the 2020-2021 golds set forward in the Oldham School Improvement Plan. In Goal A: Academic Excellence: At least 81% of children assessed by the Teaching Strategies Gold Program have improved widely held expectations in cognitive development which includes logic and reasoning skills, memory, attention and cognitive flexibility. In Goal B: Social/ Emotional Learning: Students have (under Conscious Discipline strategies) increased utilization of breathing techniques and commitments leading to self-regulation under the guidance of staff who are committed to talk, listen and encourage student expression. In Goal C: Staff have completed professional development opportunities that support district initiatives, school focus activities and best teaching practices. Finally, importantly, in Goal D: School Self-Assessments, surveys, and various school/home communications being used within the school to promote opportunities to involve parents and community members to volunteer, participate in learning of school initiatives, classroom strategies and shared decision-making practices within the school were discussed. School Attendance was also discussed in the context of this COVID period.A subcommittee of the team decided to create a parent survey to assess the effectiveness of school/parent interactions and communication during this school year. A draft will be reviewed at the next SIT Meeting on April 12, 2021. Data relating to school attendance will also be discussed. ...

Oldham Pre-K SchoolFamily NewsletterJanuary 2021Welcome to the 2021 Year!Dear Parents and Friends,The staff and I are very happy to have returned to In-Person Learning! We would like to thank you for all your support while we were at home during this holiday time; it is wonderful to see how much our little friends have grown! May I ask if you have any questions or concerns for us at this time? This month of January promises to be a quick one. As you know, next Monday, January 18, 2021, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and there will be no school. We hope that this day will be a family day full of happiness and fun – sunshine outdoors, too! On Monday, January 25, 2021, teachers will be attending professional development workshops so there will be no in-school learning. All children will have a special packet to complete with Mom or Dad, along with a new book to read! As you know, each month we take a close look at one of the RIELDS Domains. This month we will focus upon Social Studies where we are learning about how our children relate to their family and community. Our story this month talks about being kind to each other. We hope you will enjoy it with your child. Our Nurse Sue has a message for you all… Happy New Year!I hope you are all well.

Importantly, during the first two weeks of February, we are asking that you complete a short survey from the Rhode Island Department of Education. It is called SurveyWorks. If you have an older child, you may be familiar with it since all public school parents complete it each school year. This survey is an effort to gather information that will help improve the quality of schools across Rhode Island. It will help educators understand and act upon what students, teachers, support professionals, administrators and parents say about climate, culture, and learning environments in our school. You will complete it online. We will be sending you a separate link to join and an access code to enter to open the survey online within the next week. We are very appreciative that you take your valuable time in support of this. Please remember, I remain available to you always at your convenience. Again, Happy New Year!Donna M.
