www.yale.k12.ok.us Free Meals Announcement September 4, 2020 Dear Bulldog Parents/Guardians, We are proud to announce that effective today, USDA, our school child nutrition program’s policy maker, has extended a waiver allowing us to feed ALL of our students, one free breakfast and one free lunch each school day until the funding for this program runs out on December 31, 2020. This includes virtual, blended and traditional learning students. This does not include any meals in August; those charges will still need to be paid. Virtual students need to call in to your building secretary by 11:00 a.m. if you want to pick up a meal. Meals will be available at 12:30 at each location. You will receive a hot meal for the day and a breakfast for the following day. Please continue to fill out the meal program applications if you have not already done so. These forms are very important for your family and for district funding. This waiver could change overnight so if your family qualifies for the meal program, we want to make sure we have all the information in place so that you do not receive any meal charges at that time. USDA is still working on clarifications for us on this program so there are many questions that we do not have answers for but what we do know is that this is a great opportunity for our students and their families. As a district, because we know this could change quickly, we will not be refunding any money that is already on the students’ accounts. This money will remain on their account when this waiver is removed and we go back to normal feeding practices. We hope you are as excited about this as we are! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (918) 387-2434 x 3. Go Bulldogs!! www.yale.k12.ok.us

Parents of 6th-12 Grade students’ We know that there are a lot of questions regarding the distance training day. We would like to address a few of them at this time. If you have questions other than what I address here, then please call or email me and I will be happy to answer those as well. Rkennedy@yale.k12.ok.us We believe that it would best to attempt a one day trial training before the need for a longer closure could arise. Hopefully we will not need to use the distance learning platform, but we do want to be as prepared as possible. Please visit with your children about their google classroom accounts. Teachers have been working with your children for the past 12 school days to help them better understand how it works and how it can be accessed at home. Google classroom can be accessed from just about any device that has an internet connection. Cell phones are not ideal, but most can be used if that is what is available. We are going to approach this training day as if everyone has full access to google classroom at home. We realize that 100% capability isn’t realistic. We need a starting point, and we didn’t want to underestimate anyone’s capabilities. Students that are capable of logging in and completing the assignments will be counted present and given credit for their completed work. Students that are not capable of logging in will be counted absent for the day; however, upon returning to school on Tuesday, they will be given the opportunity to complete the work and have the absence removed. We do not intend for this training to be punitive, but rather informative. Students will be sent home with a schedule of when their teachers will be conducting google meets. These meets will only last about 10 minutes each. If you have multiple students using one device, please have each student attend as many meets as they can. Thank you for your cooperation.

Yale Elementary - We are so excited for school to start tomorrow. While there are lots of changes, we are trying to make adjustments for an enjoyable school year. At this time, only staff and students will be allowed into the building, even with a mask we are asking that parents do not enter the building in the morning. We understand that this will be more difficult for Pre-K and K students, so we have opened those outside classroom doors to allow parents to "walk them to class." Unfortunately, we are unable to provide that for all other classes, so 1st-5th grade students must enter through the gym doors. Please feel free to walk them to that outside door. Take a look at our map for a helpful guide for drop-offs in the morning. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Parents we need your help to prevent the spread of contagious germs. Encourage hand washing and the use of sanitizer which we have placed in public areas and in the classrooms. Additionally, please make sure that your student is fever free for 24 hours without medication before sending them to school. We believe attendance is incredibly important; however, we need to make sure we are keeping our school safe and healthy. The state department also sent out a letter detailing what we can do to help prevent sickness.

PRESS RELEASE The Yale School District takes the safety of its students very seriously and does everything it can to provide a safe learning environment. This morning, January 23, 2020, law enforcement met a student in the parking lot as he arrived at school. The student was informed that his vehicle would be searched. The student voluntarily told them that he had a rifle in the vehicle. Law enforcement was not searching his vehicle for a rifle, but for other nonrelated items. Law enforcement immediately located and took possession of the rifle. Appropriate action is being taken against the student. At no time were any students, patrons or employees in danger. The District wishes to thank law enforcement for their actions in this matter. The District cannot comment further because of privacy laws.

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!”

There are 20 juniors and seniors enrolled in this free college class and they will be earning 3 credit hours this semester. Senior Coby Prather said he is looking forward to the class because "it is not a basic class you usually take in high school." Another senior, Gage Tillison, told us he is taking this class because "it's free, a new experience, and fills in my 7th hour gap." Plans are already in motion to provide additional college classes next semester.

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 Washington Leadership Conference is sponsored by title sponsors CSX and Farm Credit and weekly sponsors Bayer, Syngenta, General Mills, Merck Animal Health, Growth Energy and Nutrien. For more information, visit FFA.org/WLC. The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 669,989 student members who belong to one of 8,630 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The organization is also supported by 459,514 alumni members in 2,236 alumni chapters throughout the U.S.

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.” ###
