Just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time. So make sure your child is in school every day, right up until vacation starts. Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning.

This holiday season, the best gift you can give your child is a good education. And the best place to get an education is in school. It’s tempting to extend your vacation by a few days, but remember, those days count as absences.

Meet Tabatha Hyde, a special education paraprofessional at Yale High School for the past four years. Ms. Tabatha assists Ms. Keeley with meeting the needs of some of our most precious students. She is originally from Davenport, OK and has two daughters, Kaylee who is 14 attends 8th grade at YJH and Lealanie who is 6 is in the 1st grade at YES. They have two dogs, Theo and Sebastion, and a bunny named Rosie. LIFE OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL Ms. Tabatha and her girls spend their summers camping at the lake and spending time with the family. However, one day she dreams of taking her daughters to Disney World. ABOUT SCHOOL LIFE A “good day” at school to Ms. Tabatha is “when your students come to school happy to be here.” When asked about her favorite dish in the cafeteria, she responded, “I would have to say the baked potatoes. They are so good.”  ABOUT THE STUDENTS Ms. Tabatha enjoys watching our Yale Bulldog football team, as well as our Yale Lady Bulldog volleyball team. Her oldest daughter, Kaylee, currently plays on our YJH volleyball. The wisdom Ms. Tabatha wishes to pass on to our students is that no matter where life takes you, remember where you came from.   JUST FOR KICKS If she could have grown up in any decade, Ms. Tabatha would definitely choose the 80s because she loves the big hair! Her favorite quote that she lives her life by is “we are all different and that’s beautiful!”

Meet Cherie Carter! Mrs. Carter is in her 18th year of teaching, with the past 5 years at Yale Public Schools. She is the instructor for Biology I, Biology II, Geology, Environmental Science and Equine Science and partners with Ms. Keeley as a Senior Class sponsor. Though she is originally from Yelm Washington, she attended Oklahoma State University where she earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree.  When asked about her family, she told us, “My husband and I have four children between us - all of which are grown and live in other states. Two of the kids are engineers, one is finishing her degree to teach elementary and the other works at a museum. My husband retired in September, after 36 years as a Professor of Agronomy at OSU. He had to learn the proper way to do laundry!!!”   LIFE OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL During summer break, Mrs. Carter enjoys traveling with her husband to compete in barrel racing her horses and visiting the grandchildren (and their parents). If that was not enough to keep them busy, they also raise commercial cattle and currently have approximately 90 head.  If she won the lottery, Mrs. Carter claims she would train horses on a full-time basis and write short stories. Her spirit animal is a horse and she shows off her YHS school spirit by attending as many school events as her schedule will allow. ABOUT SCHOOL LIFE Mrs. Carter believes positivity from everyone makes for a “good day” at school and she is inspired by the young people she works with each day. “The best thing about being a teacher is when the students “get it,” and you can see the light bulb come on!” stated Mrs. Carter. The wisdom she wishes to share with her students is “be honest and productive. Hate takes up too much energy!”

National FFA Organization’s Washington Leadership Conference Instills Importance of Growth, Leadership, Community Service INDIANAPOLIS (Monday, June 3, 2019/National FFA Organization) – For the past fifty years, FFA members from across the country converge on Washington, D.C., in the summer to evaluate their personal skills and interests, develop leadership talent and create service plans that will make a difference in their communities. This year is no different. Created in 1969 and held annually, the first conference began June 4 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. More than 2,300 students registered for the 2019 Washington Leadership Conference, the second-largest student experience that the National FFA Organization hosts each year. FFA members can attend the conference during one of seven weeks. They spend the week under the guidance of professionals, counselors and FFA staff. In workshops, seminars and small groups, members focus on identifying and developing their personal strengths and goals while undergoing comprehensive leadership training that help them guide their local FFA chapters. The capstone of the event is a civic engagement activity where participants apply what they have learned to a hands-on activity. Members also analyze the needs of their communities, develop wide-ranging and high-impact community service initiatives and implement their plans with the help of their FFA chapters upon return home. Students in recent years have promoted agricultural literacy; brought attention to abuse; collected and distributed shoes to individuals in Haiti; created a hunger awareness plan and more. Cooper Martin, Yale FFA Vice President, proudly represented the Yale FFA chapter during the third session of the Washington Leadership Conference held June 16-24. He and approximately 140 other Oklahoma FFA members from across the state traveled to Washington, D.C. via charter bus. During his time in DC, Cooper experienced the history of the nation’s capital and toured landmarks including Mount Vernon, Arlington National Cemetery, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Washington Monument, War Memorial, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian museums, among others. He also toured the U.S. Capitol where he had the opportunity to participate in congressional visits. The 400 participants of session three also engaged in a service day project where they packaged over 60,000 meals for Meals of Hope to be distributed to homeless shelters in the area.

The 2019-2020 school year is quickly approaching! Parents and guardians are starting to prepare. We are pleased to announce Yale Elementary will supply teachers with the necessary student supplies, therefore we will not be requiring families to buy supplies or pay for them at the beginning of the school year. However, donations will always be accepted. All standard school supplies are appreciated and there is a never-ending need for tissues, Clorox wipes, and disinfectant items. We appreciate Yale families and our community and look forward to starting a new school year. Thank you, Emily Nickell - Yale Elem. Principal

INTRODUCING ONLINE REGISTRATION Beginning July 29, students and parents/guardians will be able to complete and update their school registration information online using a link which will be provided on our school app (free in your app store), school website (yale.k12.ok.us), or by following a link which will be made available on our official Facebook page. Additionally, we will have Chromebooks set up at both sites for parent/guardian use. Those who will be new to our district can also utilize the online registration; however, they will need to set up a follow up appointment through the registration tool because additional information will need to be completed in person. Students in grades 6-12 will still need to come to the jr. high/high school office to select the courses they will take. That schedule is below. Our belief is the online tool will eliminate the repetitive paperwork that must be completed each year and streamline the entire enrollment process. As with anything new, there will be some hiccups, but we appreciate your willingness to work with us as we try to make this easier for you. Course Enrollment Dates: Seniors, July 31 Juniors, August 1 Sophomores, August 2 Freshman, August 5 6th, 7th, & 8th grades, August 6

Contact: Sarah Julian Email: sarah.julian@opsrc.net Phone: 405-212-4802 ext. 105 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Yale students take learning to next level Test scores surpass expectations YALE, OK— Yale Public School students just received results from their spring NWEA MAP testing, and the scores show a level of growth of which any district would be proud. Yale students showed more progress than any school in Oklahoma during the winter, and they are on pace to show similar growth for the end of the year. District administrators attribute the students’ success to hard work from all stakeholders. Superintendent Dale Bledsoe, said, “I am proud of the effort our staff put forth to make this past year a success, but I’m equally proud of our students and their incredible achievements.” What is the NWEA MAP test? To best gauge individual students’ progress, Yale uses the Northwest Evaluation Association’s (NWEA) Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test, a nationally respected assessment that measures what students currently know. The test gauges both student achievement and growth, and based on this data, teachers can see exactly what students are ready to learn next. Students are assessed three times per year, and NWEA assigns a "projected growth" amount based on national averages of students with similar demographics and at a similar grade level. How did Yale students perform? Yale’s student achievement increased in some grades nearly 20% in reading and math: an indication that solid learning is occurring and a reason to celebrate. Performance at this level is significant because this kind of growth is not common. In each grade level, multiple classrooms show impressive growth that far exceeded NWEA's typical projections: In almost every Yale Elementary School grade, students grew more than 90% of students in schools around the nation in reading. This means that Yale students are growing at a faster rate than their peers across the U.S.. In some grades, students grew almost two years in reading in just one academic year. Sixth, 7th and 8th grade Yale Middle School students performed better in reading than 99% of schools in the nation. In each grade, students showed an average growth of 3.3 years in reading in just one school year. --more-- In math, Yale Elementary students grew more than 73% of schools in the nation on average. Kindergarten and first grades students showed more growth than over 90% of schools in the U.S.. Yale Middle School students collectively grew more than 80% of schools around the nation and grew almost 1.5 years within one school year. “We implemented continual data analysis and developed a differentiated intervention program to meet all students’ needs,” Bledsoe said. “Now we are seeing that work pay off, and these strategies will help us continue reaching for academic excellence for all our students.” ###
