Public Forum Community Preservation Act Committee -- 9/30


This is your community— Have a voice in how its resources are used!

Community Preservation Act Committee Public Forum
Tuesday, September 30, 7:00 pm
, Town Room, Amherst Town Hall

(click to enlarge) 

The CPA Committee is developing a prioritization plan for the use of Community Preservation Act funds and is seeking public input and guidance.

Massachusetts’ Community Preservation Act allows towns to raise money to support open space protection, historic preservation, affordable housing and outdoor recreation. Funds are raised locally through a surcharge against real property (currently, in Amherst, set at 1.5% of the tax levy) and matched with additional distributions from a statewide Community Preservation Trust Fund.   

Since 2001, Amherst has raised over $3M locally and received nearly $2M in state matching funds. CPA funds have helped Amherst:
• Protect hundreds of acres of land for conservation, recreation, and farming.
• Contribute to the creation of almost 50 units of new affordable housing and help maintain our existing affordable housing.
• Support dozens of preservation efforts protecting the town’s historic sites, buildings, documents, and artifacts.
• Develop athletic fields and improve facilities at the town’s recreation areas.

The CPA Committee is charged with annually updating the plan which guides funding recommendations to Town Meeting, and public participation is important. The committee will be listening carefully at this forum to learn your priorities for funding future projects.

Please join us to let us know your thoughts.

PGO letter & Sept Crocker Chronicles


The September Crocker Chronicles was emailed out to families yesterday and sent out in backpacks to families that don't receive email.    You can also view it at this link:  Sept_Chronicles

-----




  
The PGO's letter to families, Sept 2014
 
Dear Crocker Farm Families,

We hope you are all enjoying the beginning of fall, and that your children are now settling into their new classes. We are writing today to say hello, and to introduce ourselves. 

All Crocker Farm families are automatically part of the Parent and Guardian Organization (PGO). The PGO’s mission is to enhance our children’s education and social experience at Crocker Farm by:
* Planning events that bring us together as a school community,
* Finding ways to support and show our appreciation of our teachers and staff, and by
* Sponsoring fundraisers to raise money for special school events, field trips, teacher mini-grants, and supplies for our school.
 
The PGO is currently hard at work producing this year’s student directory for families. If you have not yet returned the student directory form for your child(ren) that went home in backpacks, please do so as soon as possible. If you would prefer, you can complete an online version of the directory form at the PGO blog, www.crockerfarmpgo.blogspot.com. If you do not complete a directory form and give the PGO permission to publish your contact information, then your family cannot be included in the directory. Many thanks to all the families who have already returned their directory form! 

The PGO’s blog is a good source of information for the latest news on the PGO, and school and community events of interest. You can subscribe at the blog address above to receive a daily email containing the newest posts. The PGO is also on Facebook (Crocker-Farm-PGO). 

The PGO is always seeking volunteers to help us with our various activities throughout the year, and many of our events would not be possible without volunteer help. If you are interested in volunteering, please return the PGO volunteer form that went home or email us at crockerfarmpgo@gmail.com. There are many ways to volunteer and even helping for just an hour or two can make a big difference.

The PGO has regularly scheduled monthly coffees with the Crocker Farm principal, Derek Shea. There are generally held on the last Friday of the month, at the start of the school day, and are a great time to learn more about school and PGO activities, and talk with our principal and special guests, and other parents/guardians. The first three PGO coffees with the Principal are scheduled for: Friday, September 26th; Friday, October 31st, and Thursday, November 20th. More PGO events for the fall are being planned; we will send out dates and details once we have them. The PGO will also be at the Crocker Farm Curriculum Night scheduled for September 30th. Feel free to stop by and talk with us then, or to email us at any time. 

Thank you. We look forward to a great year together.

Class Parents -- PGO Still Seeking Class Parents for a Few Classes


Many thanks to those of you who have volunteered to be class parents for this school year.   The PGO is still seeking class parents for a few classes, as listed below.   Parents, guardians, grandparents are welcome to sign up.  Each class parent works with their child's teacher to determine how best to help.   Class parents can be involved with helping in the classroom and/or planning potlucks or other special activities for events.

Class parents are still needed for:
 3rd Grade:  MR. HUGHES

If you are interested in serving as a class parent for one of these classes, please email the PGO at crockerfarmpgo@gmail.com, or leave us a note in the PGO mailbox in the Crocker Farm office. 
 
Update 9/24:  We now have class parents for all classes except Mr. Hughes.  Many thanks to everyone who volunteered. 





Stop & Shop Program to Support Schools


Stop & Shop grocery stores support schools through the A+ School Rewards program.  Families register their Stop & Shop card to earn points for their school(s), and then each time the family shops at Stop & Shop, the school earns credit.   For the 2013-2014 school year, Stop & Shop donated $2.5 million in A+ School Rewards to nearly 4,000 schools in the northeast U.S.   The Amherst Regional High School was one of the top earners, with over $22,000 in rewards for the school year.  Crocker Farm earned about $500 last year, & we hope to do better this year!

This school year the A+ Rewards program begins October 3rd and runs through March 19th.

You can register your Stop & Shop card for the A+ Rewards program at the following web site: http://www.stopandshop.com/aplus/register-card/    Crocker Farm has school ID 05194 for the program.    

Currently, 49 families are registered for the program for Crocker Farm for this year.      Please consider registering if you shop at Stop & Shop and haven't already.

This is a great way to earn money to support our school at no cost to you.   Schools can use for the rewards earned for whatever they need.



Coffee this Friday!

"SMILE" Dentist program

For the second year in a row, ARPS Family Center is partnering with The Mobile Dentist to provide dental care to our district families of Amherst. Mobile Dentist will be at Crocker Farm School on Wed, October 1st

Smile Programs, the mobile dentists are innovative, on-site, school based, dental outreach providers. Their mission is to bring state of the art dental care to those students in need, in the most comfortable and effective way possible. Dental care remains the greatest unmet health need among U.S. children.  Over 50% of children have a cavity, which can cause pain leading to missed school. 


Enrollment forms were be sent home with your child this on Friday. To take advantage of this convenient opportunity and have your child see the dentist at school, please fill out and sign the enrollment form and return it to school with your child by Friday, September 19th.  Together, we can keep our children healthy, in school, and learning. Please call 362-1600 if you did not receive a registration form in your child’s backpack, and you are interested in signing your child up.

News from Crocker Farm School

September 3, 2014

Welcome Back Crocker Farm Families!

We are all excited to be working with your children and looking forward to a year full of discovery and learning opportunities.

Just a few reminders:
Student Drop Off/ Student Pick Up/ School Buses
Student Drop Off in the morning is at our Shays Street entrance. A staff member will meet students at that end of the playground. Our West Street entrance is for Buses only in the morning.

Student Pick Up / “Parent pick-up,” in the afternoon, is going smoothly at the Pre-School Entrance.  Students are dismissed from classrooms at 3:10pm. Thank you so much for your patience as classroom teachers and students learn the end of the day routines.

Buses generally leave our school by 3:20pm in the afternoon. It could be later this first week as we work out schedules. Again, we thank families for their patience as we iron out the routes.

Teachers are getting to know your children in a variety of ways at the start of the year: socially, emotionally and academically. This week you may begin to hear your children talk about reading with an adult, taking beginning of year assessments in spelling, writing and math or taking the “Aimsweb”. AimsWeb assessments are brief assessments in reading and math which our district uses to monitor student progress. More information can be found at: www.aimsweb.com

We would like to clarify some events related to last week’s incident with a dog at Crocker Farm as there has been some inaccurate information about the incident in the local press. We first want to compliment the teachers, who acted with incredible poise and professionalism by taking care of their students in a stressful and unusual situation. The person who took hold of the dog was spoken to briefly by a staff member, before he left the premises. The person was identified by a Crocker Farm student who witnessed the event, and we shared that information with the police. We are hoping that with the community’s support, the police are able to track down further information about the person(s) responsible for the incident. We continue to be saddened by the incident, especially given the timing on the first day of school, and will continue to ensure that the students directly affected are supported to have a great school year at Crocker Farm.

We are fortunate to have air conditioning and it’s working hard! We are being cautious about outdoor recess if the heat index is high and are encouraging children to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. Please make sure to dress your child in weather appropriate clothing.

This Friday, we will have our Back to School Assembly for students and staff. This is a time to open the year together. There will be music, readings and poetry. We will also be sharing our school book this year: Brave Girl: Clara and the Shirtwaist Makers’ Strike of 1909 by Michele Markel which will help us all learn more about Empathy. (The “E” in “C.A.R.E.”).

As always, you can reach out to us to let us know of ideas, compliments or concerns that you might have to help us improve your child’s daily experience. We appreciate you sharing your children with us and your efforts to help us build a strong learning community.

With warm regards,

Derek Shea, Principal
Sharri Conklin, Assistant Principal

Noticias de la escuela Crocker Farm

3 de septiembre, 2014

¡Bienvenidos y saludos a todas nuestras familias de Crocker Farm! Todos estamos orgullosos de trabajar con sus hijos y deseamos un año lleno de descubrimientos y oportunidades para aprendizaje.

Unos recordatorios:
Cuando dejan a su niño en escuela/Cuando buscan a su niño/ El autobús escolar

A la mañana: deben entrar por la calle Shays. Un miembro del personal reunirá a los estudiantes al fin del patio. La entrada por medio de la calle West es solo para autobuses durante la mañana.

Por la tarde/recogiendo estudiantes / “Parent pick-up”: Por la tarde, se entra por las puertas del preescolar. Los estudiantes son despedidos a las 3:10pm (15:10). Muchas gracias por su paciencia mientras los maestros y los alumnos aprenden las rutinas diarias

Autobuses: generalmente dejan nuestra escuela a las 3:20pm (15:20). Durante las primeras semanas a veces se atrasan los autobuses. Nuevamente, agradecemos a las familias por su paciencia mientras aprendemos las rutas.

Los maestros están conociendo sus hijos en una variedad de niveles: social, emocional y académico. Esta semana puede empezar a escuchar a sus hijos hablar de lectura con un adulto, tomado el principio de las evaluaciones del año en matemáticas, escritura y ortografía o tomando el "Aimsweb". Las evaluaciones AimsWeb son breves evaluaciones de lectura y matemáticas que nuestro distrito utiliza para controlar el progreso del estudiante. Puede encontrarse más información en: www.aimsweb.com

Nos gustaría aclarar algunos eventos relacionados con el incidente de la semana pasada con un perro en la escuela de Crocker. Ha habido información inexacta sobre el incidente en la prensa local. Primero queremos complementar a los profesores, quienes actuaron con aplomo increíble y profesional cuidando de sus estudiantes en una situación estresante e inusual. La persona quien se apoderó del perro habló brevemente con un miembro del personal, antes de que dejara las instalaciones. La persona fue identificada por un estudiante de Crocker quien presenció el evento, y compartimos esa información con la policía. Esperamos que con el apoyo de la comunidad, la policía sea capaz de localizar más información sobre las personas responsables por el incidente. Seguimos tristes por el daño que ocurrió, especialmente porque ocurrió durante el primer día de escuela. Continuaremos garantizar que los estudiantes directamente afectados reciben atención para que tengan un gran año escolar en la escuela de Crocker.

¡Somos afortunados de tener aire acondicionado y está trabajando duro! Estamos pendientes de la temperatura afuera durante las horas de recreo. Por favor asegúrese de vestir a su niño en ropa apropiada para el tiempo.

Este viernes tendremos nuestra asamblea de escuela para darles la bienvenida a los estudiantes y todos los maestros. Es un momento para abrir el año junto. Habrá música, lecturas y poesía. Vamos a compartir nuestro libro en común, de la escuela Crocker Farm, este año: Valiente Clara y la huelga el Shirtwaist Makers' de 1909 escrito por Michele Markel. El libro nos ayudará a aprender más acerca de empatía. (La "E" en "C.A.R.E.").

Como siempre, invitamos sus pensamientos y reflexiones. Pueden mandar alabanzas, crítica constructiva y opiniones. Gracias por compartir a tus hijos con nosotros. Agradecemos sus esfuerzos para ayudarnos a construir una comunidad de aprendizaje fuerte.

Con saludos afectuosos,
Derek Shea, Principal
Sharri Conklin, Asistente al Principal
