Thank you to the Happy Stitchers who are a part of the Pahrump Arts Council. Today they surprised the Pre-K students with beautifully stitched book bags. Each bag contained coloring books and crayons. They are busing stitching more bags so that all Pre-K students will receive one. A special thank you to Ms. Susan for coordinating this event and also to Ms. Lee and Ms. Margarite for delivering the bags to the school. Rachel Owens

For Twitter/text message: Understand the difference attendance makes - http://niswc.com/35iAC276091 For email/Facebook: Understand the difference attendance makes Sooner or later, nearly every teen whines, "Do I have to go to school today?" The answer is short and simple. "Yes." Here are just a few reasons why: Students who miss school earn lower grades than those who attend regularly. They are more likely to get into trouble during the day. And skipping school can lead to troublesome adult habits. Few companies allow employees to show up only when they feel like it. http://niswc.com/35iAC276091 ---------------------------------------- For Twitter/text message: Comprenda la diferencia que marca la asistencia - http://niswc.com/45iAC276091 For email/Facebook: Comprenda la diferencia que marca la asistencia Tarde o temprano, casi todos los jóvenes se quejan y dicen, "¿Tengo que ir a la escuela hoy?" La respuesta es corta y simple. "Sí". Aquí tiene algunos motivos: Los estudiantes que faltan a la escuela obtienen calificaciones más bajas que aquellos que asisten con regularidad. También son más propensos a meterse en problemas durante el día. Y faltar a clase puede conducir a malos hábitos en la adultez. Las empresas no permiten que los empleados solo vayan a trabajar cuando quieren. http://niswc.com/45iAC276091

Attendance is critical for your child's success Children who don't attend school regularly fall behind and score lower on tests. They can have a hard time making and keeping friends. And frequent absences in elementary school can set a pattern that makes a child more likely to drop out of school later. Don't let your child skip school for reasons other than illness or emergency. If he regularly resists going to school, talk to the teacher. http://niswc.com/15heC276091 ---------------------------------------- For Twitter/text message: La asistencia es fundamental para el éxito de su hijo - http://niswc.com/25heC276091 For email/Facebook: La asistencia es fundamental para el éxito de su hijo Los niños que no asisten a la escuela con regularidad suelen atrasarse y obtener puntajes más bajos en los exámenes. También pueden tener dificultades para formar y mantener amistades. Y los niños que faltan con frecuencia a la escuela primaria son más propensos a abandonar los estudios en el futuro. No permita que su hijo falte a la escuela a menos que esté enfermo o haya una emergencia. Si se resiste a ir a la escuela regularmente, hable con el maestro. http://niswc.com/25heC276091

Greetings NCSD Families! I feel the need to inform you that we had a student make a claim that there was a bomb at PVHS. After a thorough investigation by school officials, in conjunction with the Nye County Sheriff’s Office, it was determined that there was never a credible threat to any student or staff at Pahrump Valley High School. The Nye County Sheriff’s Office took extra precaution to ensure the safety of all. Please be assured that student and staff safety is our paramount goal at PVHS and we will investigate any potential threat that may undermine our mission of school safety and academic excellence. Any threats to a school will be reported to and investigated by the Nye County Sheriff's Office. Sincerely, Mr. George Campnell PVHS Principal

Shift attention from problems to solutions Your teen is well past the age when Mom or Dad should be solving her problems. But she's not too old for a little push in the right direction. When your teen comes to you with a problem, help her think through what she can do to make it right. Ask: What in this situation is working well? What is not working well? What results are you looking for? What would you have to do to get those results? --------------------------------------------------------------- Desvíe la atención de los problemas a las soluciones Su joven ya no tiene edad para que mamá o papá resuelvan todos sus problemas. Pero tampoco es demasiado grande para que le den un empujoncito en la dirección correcta. Cuando su joven tenga un problema, ayúdelo a analizar lo que puede hacer para solucionarlo. Pregúntele: ¿Qué está funcionando bien en esta situación? ¿Qué es lo que no está funcionando bien? ¿Cuáles son los resultados que deseas obtener? ¿Qué deberías hacer para obtenerlos?

Fill your home with words for your child to read Reading with your child doesn't always have to involve books. You can help your beginning reader learn in lots of ways. For example, label furniture and household items with sticky notes (chair, table, toaster, etc.). Go around the house and read the labels with your child. Then collect the labels and ask her to replace each one on the matching item. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Llene su hogar con palabras para que lea su hijo Para leer con su hijo, no siempre hace falta que tenga un libro. Hay muchas maneras en las que usted puede ayudar a su lector en ciernes a aprender a leer. Por ejemplo, use notas autoadhesivas para etiquetar los muebles y objetos del hogar (silla, mesa, tostadora, etc.). Caminen juntos por la casa y léanlas. Luego recójalas y pídale que vuelva a pegar cada una en el objeto correspondiente.

An Apology To all of our NCSD parents and students, We had significant password compromise on our Google and IC student accounts because the passwords were based on student number. Students were using accounts that were not assigned to them. The issue did not involve outside actors. I thought resetting the passwords the day before school started would work as kids can get their passwords the next day from their teachers. Obviously, I was wrong, and I apologize. Several students have been locked out of their accounts but need to finish summer homework, which has caused great frustration. Arrangements will be made for students to have additional time on their summer assignments. Again, I'm sorry. This will not happen in this manner in the future. Sincerely, Robert Williams Director of Technology

Learning moments help your child stay off the 'summer slide' The summer slide isn't a piece of playground equipment. It's the loss of skills that happens when kids don't practice what they've learned during the school year. Look for ways your child can use his skills this summer. You might ask him to keep a journal. Or have him estimate and measure water volume while he splashes in the pool or tub. Have him map the routes you travel and read road signs aloud. http://niswc.com/15gCC276091 ----------------------------------- Los momentos de aprendizaje ayudan a evitar el retroceso de verano Si los niños no practican lo que han aprendido durante el año escolar, se puede generar un deterioro en sus habilidades. Busque maneras de que su hijo use sus habilidades durante el verano. Podría decirle que escriba un diario o que juegue con recipientes para calcular y medir el volumen del agua en la pileta o en la bañera. Dígale que marque en un mapa los caminos que siguen cuando viajan y que lea las señales de tránsito en voz alta. http://niswc.com/25gCC276091

Community college can be a smart start If your teen wants to go to college but isn't ready for the challenges or commitments of a four-year school, consider looking into community college. In a community college, your teen will meet students of all ages and walks of life. He'll be able to try out subject areas he might be interested in, with fewer of the distractions of a four-year college. And he'll get a chance to mature before moving too far from home. http://niswc.com/35hHC276091

Have a private conversation about public misbehavior How do you discipline a child who misbehaves in front of friends? You don't want to embarrass your child, but you don't want to let the behavior go unchallenged, either. Look for a compromise: Say something brief at the time (That wasn't fair, James). Later, in private, you can discuss the issue further. Role-play appropriate ways to handle the situation, and end by saying "I know you'll do better next time." http://niswc.com/15hJC276091

Hable en privado sobre al mal comportamiento en público ¿Cómo debe disciplinar a su hijo cuando se porta mal delante de sus amigos? Usted no quiere avergonzarlo, pero tampoco quiere pasar por alto la mala conducta. Por eso, busque un equilibrio: hágale un comentario breve en el momento (Eso no estuvo bien, José). Luego, en privado, hable del tema con mayor profundidad. Pueden hacer un juego de roles para practicar maneras apropiadas de abordar la situación, y termine la conversación diciendo "Estoy seguro de que la próxima vez lo harás mejor". http://niswc.com/25hJC276091
