Iowa Core: An Update and Shifts in Literacy

Le Mars Community School teachers continue to progress through their study of the Iowa Core. During our districtwide two-hour early dismissals, one time per month, teachers will begin to identify essential learning for each standard. In other words, determine what students should know, understand, and be able to do in order to demonstrate they have met each Iowa Core standard. There has been much media coverage pertaining to the Iowa Core and whether or not the curriculum is a local decision or dictated by the state or federal government. The Iowa Core is composed of minimum standards of learning for all students in Iowa to strive to achieve. Districts have the ability to teach above and beyond these standards. Classroom teachers still have the authority to determine how best to teach students, when to teach the content throughout the school year, and the resources to utilize in order to help students reach these standards. Simply stated, local school districts have the authority to determine the curriculum in order to meet the Iowa Core standards.

The Iowa Core literacy standards entail not only English language arts (ELA), but also history/social studies, science, and all other subject areas. In order for all students to become literate, all teachers must teach the essential skills of literacy within every content area; relying solely on the ELA teacher to ensure these skills is not best practice. Since reading is a foundational skill for all learning, it is important that all content areas take part in helping students to learn to read and read to learn.

As we study the Iowa Core, there are key areas in which the Iowa Core literacy standards focus. These key areas are not all-inclusive with regard to what students will learn, but they are important factors in helping our children develop strong literacy skills. The following information is based upon Common Core shifts available at www.achievethecore.org:

1. Building knowledge through content-area rich non-fiction (informational text). Reasoning: Most of the knowledge we gain in the world comes through reading non-fiction (informational) texts. Increased focus on developing skills to read and apply learning from non-fiction is vital. However, fiction (literary) will continue to be utilized in order to develop a love of reading, develop an appreciation for powerful literary works, and to help with developing reading skills. The information below details the percent of literary (fiction) and informational (nonfiction) texts students will be exposed to during their literacy development at each grade level. You will notice the percent of informational reading increases in the higher grade levels in order to prepare students for college and careers.

Grade Level
Literary
Informational
K-5
50%
50%
MS
45%
55%
HS
30%
70%

2. Reading, writing, and speaking based upon evidence within literary and non-fiction texts. Reasoning: Most college and workplace writing requires evidence. Strong readers and writers are able to locate, cite, and integrate evidence from texts.

3. Regular practice with complex texts. Reasoning: Students who can read and understand difficult texts and vocabulary are more likely to have success in college (ACT study). Students will develop skills to read and understand texts with greater complexity from elementary through high school.

We encourage anyone interested in the Iowa Core to take a look at the following Iowa Core online resources: Iowa Department of Education (https://www.educateiowa.gov/iowacore), the Common Core State Initiatives website (http://www.corestandards.org/), or a series of online videos conducted by the developers of the Common Core, which is the basis for the Iowa Core, at http://www.youtube.com/user/TheHuntInstitute#g/u. Please contact Steve Webner, Assistant Superintendent, with any questions, at (712) 546-4155, or email steve.webner@lemarscsd.org.

(FORT DODGE) -- The Le Mars girls softball team wrapped up play in their first-ever State softball tournament on Wednesday, finishing seventh in the Class 4A tournament. No. 8 West Delaware, Manchester edged the Lady Bulldogs 2-1 in the consolation bracket semifinals behind a three-hitter
by Hannah Cole. Cole allowed a triple by Madison Heidebrink in the first inning and a home run by Kassidy Rieken in the second. Crystal Eppling added a single in the sixth for Le Mars. Janessa Milbrodt allowed just four hits in the pitching circle for Le Mars.

The Hawks scored an unearned run in the first and added a run on a wild pitch in the second to complete the scoring. In the seventh place game, Le Mars rallied from a 3-2 deficit with six runs in an eleven-batter fifth inning to beat unrated Clear Creek-Amana 8-3. Madison Heidebrink belted a two-run homer in the first inning for an early 2-0 Le Mars lead but the Clippers tallied three runs in the fifth on a walk, two hits and a pair of Lady Bulldog errors. Crystal Eppling's RBI single tied the game in the bottom of the fifth and Kassidy Rieken followed with a two-run single for a 5-3 lead. Another run scored on a error before Grace Milbrodt singled home a run and Janessa Milbrodt's sacrifice fly brought in the final run. Janessa Milbrodt scattered eight hits with one walk and four strike outs to finish at 12-and-12 for the season.

Le Mars finished the season at 22-and-18. Three seniors closed out their careers for Le Mars, Madison Heidebrink, Andrea Urban and Cassie Schlumbaum.

August Newsletter (Mr Bruce Ludwig)

Dr Wendt Superintendent

The arrival of this newsletter signals the beginning of another school year in the LeMars Community School District. While some last minute vacations and summertime activities are still yet to occur, August 21st and the start of school for another year is quickly approaching.

Registration for the new school year will be occurring on August 4th from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm and August 5th from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. As in past years, all students register at the middle school.

We will be mailing registration packets ahead of the actual registration dates to returning students. Families have the option of completing all the necessary registration materials ahead of the registration dates and either returning the materials to the central office at 940 Lincoln St. SW prior to August 1st, or bringing the completed materials with them on one of the two registration dates. Registration materials will be available at the middle school on August 4thand August 5th for those new to the district or those that did not receive the registration packet in the mail.

We are in the process of recruiting and selecting parents and members of the community to serve on the District Learning and Instructional Impact Team (DLIIT Team) for the 2014-15 school year. The DLIIT Team is made up of students, parents, community members, teachers, administrators, and board members. The purpose of the team is to bring together representatives from the various stakeholder groups in the school district to provide leadership in the planning process and input to the Board of Education regarding issues facing the district. Topics worked on by the DLIIT Team in the past have included the Phase II Construction Project and the pursuit of the Instructional Support Levy. The time commitment involved would be four to five meetings per year in the evening. If interested in being considered for selection to the DLIIT Team, please contact the Superintendent’s Office for an application form.

You will see later in this issue of the newsletter that the various booster clubs are conducting their annual membership drive. I would encourage all of you to support the young people involved in athletics, music, and T & I by joining the booster clubs and becoming actively involved. Additionally, the district is very fortunate to be supported by the Elementary Parent Teacher Organization and the Le Mars Educational Enhancement Project (L.E.E.P.). Please support the efforts of these organizations as well. Without the assistance of all these groups, our students would not experience the level of excellence that exists in our district because of the support the groups provide.


You will notice later in the newsletter that we will have many new teachers with us this school year. As you come in contact with these people during the school year, please help them feel welcome in the school district and the community. I feel like we have been very successful in hiring high quality candidates and I believe this year’s new teachers will do an excellent job of
working with our students. Please know that it really makes a difference when you are transitioning to a new job and a new community to be welcomed by the people around you.

All of us are very much looking forward to the return of the students on August 21, 2014 for the first day of school in the 2014-15 school year. Please enjoy the rest of your summer and remember to start talking with your student about the return to school as we get closer to the start of another great year in the Le Mars Community Schools.
