Team Hele February 2014 Student of the Month

Polina’s instinct to investigate and to challenge the ordinary and extraordinary defines her. Her curiosity transcends the content addressed in class. Driven by the want to examine a concept, philosophy, movement, more deeply, Polina is often the last to leave class because she has one more question to ask or one more story to share. She recognizes the powerful possibilities each learning opportunity holds, and she meets the challenges wearing a perpetual smile and a cheerful demeanor. Her preparation and thoroughness, her unwavering readiness, represent a genuine respect for learning; Polina enjoys the demands of inquiry and research and is logical, open-minded and persistent in those pursuits. The classroom knows she is present and the result is a synergy that prompts, awakens and challenges all participants to bring their best and to pursue their best. Polina sets an exemplary standard for herself each day and strives to meet that standard. Her dedication, compassion, humility and geniality serve as a model for her teammates and teachers. Team Hele celebrates Polina’s commitment to her potential and her dedication to the Team Hele Move it Forward spirit.

Middle School Word of the Week

Wow, the end of another school year, another year of experience to add to our lives. Through our investigations this year, we have discovered new ideas, new friendships, new interests, new beginnings. While much of life cannot be predicted, pursuing the things you love or trusting in the promise of discovery requires intention-purpose. This week’s word of the week serves as a caveat, or warning. Desultory means lacking a plan, a purpose or enthusiasm; going from one subject to another in a halfhearted way. Avoid falling prey to a desultory existence. Whatever you choose to do this summer, pursue it with purpose and enthusiasm and carry that momentum into the new school year.

Hele Team November 2013 Student of the Month

It is very poignant that Caleb Lardner is Team Hele’s November student of the month. November celebrates Thanksgiving, and Team Hele gives thanks for Caleb and his steadfast commitment to excellence. Many define excellence as exercising life’s opportunities and passionately pursuing them. Caleb is wholly immersed in investigating the possibilities that await him each day; and from this energy, he engineers new opportunities to explore. Caleb partners his unwavering commitment to excellence with a keen sense of humor and wit, which he employs adeptly. Furthermore, Caleb is an astute listener, and his peers know that he has a genuine respect for what they have to say. His peers enjoy his company because he is honest, encouraging and humble; his reticent leadership is rooted in these exemplary character traits. In his commitment to himself and to others, Caleb never falters; this commitment is knitted into his DNA. Team Hele honors Caleb Lardner and lauds his Move it Forward attitude, poise and style.

January 2014 Team Hele Student of the Month

It is no coincidence that Team Hele named Alex Newman January Student of the Month on the eve of one of the most celebrated American contests:  the Super Bowl. After thirty-two weeks of play and preparations that covered three seasons, summer, fall and winter, the two teams that demonstrated a superior physical and mental toughness would duke it out in Super Bowl XLVIII.  While talent played an integral role in who would play in the penultimate game, most would agree that the two teams who would make it there had incredible grit. Most would also agree that the grit that propelled the Broncos and Seahawks forward was years in the making: a dedication unparalleled, a purpose uncompromised. Alex Newman possesses that same unyielding will and focus. He knows that each singular day will ultimately create a harvest of opportunity.  His sunrise to sunset, get it done, and get it done well attitude is an inspiration to his peers and his teachers. For his relentless work ethic and his uncompromising pursuit of excellence, Team Hele honors Alex Newman as their January 2014 Student of the Month.

Other outside interests include more sports where she is a HUGE fan of the NFL, WWE, and NASCAR, as well as swimming and dancing.   Brianna’s future goal is to become an intervention specialist because she says she knows what it’s like to struggle with school work sometimes and likes to be able to overcome that and even help others.

Mayfield Middle School Word of the Week

Altruistic is the word of the week for the week of April 22nd.

Mayfield Middle School has a strong history of giving; giving of its time and treasure to help those in need. From the endless fundraisers, like Harvest for Hunger, the Halloween Polio Drive, Hoops for Providence House to the annual Beautiful Lengths initiative to scores of other campaigns, Mayfield gives abundantly of one of life’s most precious gifts: Time. Altruism is defined as “a practice of unselfish concern for or devotion to the welfare of others.” If a person is characterized as altruistic, he or she is considered charitable, kind, selfless, magnanimous, a person with an abundance of goodwill. The world often seems like a scary place, but the muscle of goodwill or altruism is one of the strongest muscles we possess, and it will always defeat evil.

Parents of 8th grade Accelerated Math students

As you are probably aware, there is a national concern about the mathematical ability of students in the United States as compared to students in other countries around the world. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) has published a set of standards, which makes recommendations for increasing the mathematical abilities of students. One of the major steps in achieving improved performance is the availability of graphing calculators to every student taking mathematics in high school. These calculators may be used on various standardized tests, including the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and are required for the Advanced Placement tests in mathematics. Many nearby colleges now require students taking various mathematics classes to have graphing calculators.

Word of the Week

On Sunday May 12th, we celebrated Mother’s Day. Mothers have dynamic qualities, qualities that give them the power to exercise  extraordinary patience,extend boundless charity, dispense sage advice, withstand trying situations, and demonstrate great resolve. Most importantly, they inspire in us, “the gift of possibility.” Moms possess an indomitable spirit, herculean in nature. Indomitable means that one cannot be subdued or overcome, as in a person’s courage or will or unconquerable such as an indomitable warrior. 

While most mother’s won’t wear visible combat gear; rest assured, moms, with their indomitable spirit, are ready to do battle everyday for their most precious gifts: You!

MMS Celebrates Black History Month

Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.

 

The National Theme for Black History Month 2014 is: Civil Rights in America.  This year’s theme marks the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.  The Civil Rights Act was enacted on July 2nd, 1964; it outlawed major forms of discrimination against racial, ethnic, national and religious minorities, and women.  It ended unequal application of voter registration requirements and ended racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and all public places.

 

In order to celebrate Black History Month at Mayfield Middle School, we will have several different activities, including a door decorating contest, all staff and students will wear a common color on Fridays, a weekly homeroom trivia quiz, and a special soul food lunch served in the cafeteria.

H2O for Life Update on Murangai School in Kenya

Dear Mayfield Middle School,

 

It was great to run into Mayfield teachers at the AMLE conference in Minneapolis.

 

I wanted to send an updated report on Murangai School in Kenya.  The funding that your students provided changed an entire school and opened the doors for educational possibilities for many, many students.

 

I was greeted at the gate by girls and boys in green H2O for Life shirts-provided by Mayfield to the school. The shirts were spotless! I'm sure they are brought out for special occasions, and celebrated by the kids who get to wear them. The students sang and danced and were very grateful for the water, toilets and handwashing.

Word of the Week for the week of April 29

Verismilitude is the word of the week for the week of April 29th.

Fiction has many powers; one of its bewitching powers is its ability to serve as the mirror of our lives. Authors craft or engineer stories, characters, settings and so many other literary elements with such a resemblance to real life that its difficult to discern what is truth and what is fiction. Our accomplished Power of the Pen writers toil to give their characters realistic traits and mannerisms and strive to create believable settings or situations, all vital to engaging fiction. The word Verisimilitude is used to describe this effect. Verisimilitude means the quality of appearing to be true or real. The word is from the Latin verisimilitude, from verum(truth) + similis (like). Words like credibility, genuineness, plausibility, semblance, and realism all serve as kin or synonyms to verisimilitude.

Verisimilitude is a dynamic vocabulary word that may be exercised in many settings.

Obstacles do not deter her; she has a singular, surgical focus. Armed with grit and grace, Lauren Bell Moves it Forward
