Kittitas Middle School Student Attend Youth Traffic Safety Summit in Washington D.C.
Kittitas Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) applied for the opportunity to participate in a middle school Youth Traffic Safety Summit and were chosen to be one of the ten schools in the nation participating. The event was sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and was in conjunction with the FCCLA National Cluster Meeting. The four middle school chapter members chosen to attend were Sydney Bare, Dane Gokey, Brooke Ravet and Bode Stermetz, in addition each team also had to be comprised of the state FCCLA adviser, Kay Niemi, the chapter adviser, Cheryl Uceny, faculty member, Rocky Gibson, three parents, Amy Bare, Jayson Gokey and Julie Ravet. Chapter members and team participated in workshops about statistics and research, networked with middle schoolers from nine other rural schools, and developed a project proposal for how they would come back and make a difference in their communities. In March, all ten teams will submit a chapter report based on their projects, and the top three teams will have an all-expense paid trip to the National FCCLA Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia this summer. The Kittitas FCCLA chapter will be looking to create partnerships throughout our community in order to fulfill their plan.
MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT RICH STEWART
Dear Parents, Guardians and Community,
Our next Key Comminicators meeting is December 13 at noon and 5:30 located in the district office board room.
I appreciate all that are attending our meetings. Yesterday our district shared about our budget and process and the update on the website. In addition our elementary school principal, Del Enders, updated our communicators regarding progress regarding the Highly Capable program. During conferences we are asking parents to give us feedback about the school to help us understand parent expectations and perceptions. Thanks for taking the time to respond to the survey. Please ask your teacher at school about this. LEVY meeting tonight, November 9, at 7:00 pm in the district office. We need as many participants as possible to help. We plan on offering the levy to our voters in February, so it will be a short time line and thanks for the help
Hope to see you at the next Key Communicators meeting, please bring topics you would like to discuss.
Safety is one of our district's top priorities and to help safeguard our school community, we are now using SafeSchools Alert. SafeSchools Alert is a tip reporting service that allows students, staff, and parents to submit safety concerns to our administration four different ways:
1. Phone: 509-673-7070
2. Text: Text your tip to 509-673-7070
3. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Web: http://1533.alert1.us
You and your child can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism or any safety issue you are concerned about. Every tip SafeSchools Alert receives about our district is immediately logged in the system and our administration is notified so they can investigate and take appropriate action. And, tips may also be submitted anonymously if you prefer.
Please contact your building administrator, or district office staff, with any questions.
