波市公校一月註冊

Parent University is an opportunity for parents to sharpen their skills as they work in one of life's most important and demanding roles. Sessions focus on child development, what children are learning in schools, advocacy, parent leadership and effective parenting skills.
  
Launched in 2009, Parent University was established by the Boston Public Schools Office of Family and Student Engagement as the primary strategy to build the capacity of parents to be actively engaged in their children's education.

Trotter Innovation School wins national
Asthma-Friendly Schools Initiative award
 
The American Lung Association has recognized the Trotter Innovation School with the 2013 Asthma-Friendly Schools Initiative Champion Silver Award. The AFSI Champion Awards are given in recognition of schools that have taken positive strides to create a healthier learning environment using the strategies outlined in the Asthma-Friendly Schools Initiative. Silver and Gold level winners are schools that have gone above and beyond to protect the health of their students, faculty and staff. 

The faculty at the Trotter School decided to use AFSI Award funding be to compile "starter kits" that would be provided to other Boston Public Schools to assist them in implementing the AFSI in those schools - with Trotter faculty and staff acting as champions and consultants. The American Lung Association will provide clipboards containing asthma emergency information for use by coaches, bus drivers and other school personnel in conjunction with the Asthma Basics asthma education program. BPS will be provided with 20 Open Airways For Schools® kits and provided a free program training for school nurses and personnel. Two hundred and fifty inhaler spacers will be distributed to children taking part in OAS. A number of posters detailing how to properly use an inhaler will also be distributed by the Lung Association.

The Lung Association's AFSI Champion Award acknowledges schools that have helped to develop a comprehensive asthma management plan.  The Lung Association encourages schools to take positive steps toward creating an asthma-friendly school by maximizing school health services, providing asthma education, creating a healthy school environment, and ensuring all students can participate in physical education and activity.

January is the month to register
for 2014-15 Kindergarten, 6th & 9th grade
  
Students who will begin Kindergarten, 6th grade or 9th grade in the fall of 2014 should register for school during the First Registration Period, which ends Friday, January 31.

Families should visit any BPS Welcome Center in January to register for school and make their school choices. Students making selections for grades other than K, 6 and 9 should wait until the Second Registration Period, which begins February 5.

All applications received within a registration period are processed at the same time, not in the order received. It doesn't matter if you apply on the first day or the last day of the registration period. BPS will run the school choice lottery after the completion of each registration period and will send school assignments by mail. These assignments are usually mailed about six weeks after the close of the period.

Did you know...

Zoo New England is looking for a conservation-minded student who loves the Franklin Park Zoo and (or) Stone Zoo, to win this year's Zoo Hero Youth Award! Nominated youth should: 
  • Be between the ages of 8 and 18 
  • Have demonstrated a positive commitment to Zoo New England and its conservation mission 
  • Have engaged in some outstanding action to support Zoo New England and its conservation mission
Last year's winner was BPS student Adam Crellin-Sazama. Adam's love of animals dates back to his earliest visits to Franklin Park Zoo. He's lived his entire life within a mile of the Zoo, and it's always been his favorite place to visit.

Adam set a goal of raising $500 to support Zoo New England, in particular Ussuri the Amur leopard - his favorite animal. He dedicated his $10 monthly allowance towards this goal, and he sold hot chocolate and cookies outside his home to raise more money. Adam spoke about his efforts at his school assembly to inspire schoolmates, and he created an informational flyer explaining the impact of fossil fuel on wild habitats and offering tips on how to support conservation organizations including Zoo New England. Not only did Adam reach his $500 goal-he far exceeded it by donating more than $2,000 to date in support of the Zoos' conservation efforts. Now, check out Adam's "Zoo hero award one year later" video to see what he's been up to since then!

The award will be presented at Zootopia 2014 on May 3, 2014 to further the recipient's project, conservation work and education. The winner and two adults will receive complimentary tickets to Zootopia to participate in the awards ceremony. Nomination deadline: Friday, March 21, 2014 by 5:00p.m.Click here to learn more about the award from Zoo New England.
