    Calming Techniques

    The following video features our school counselor, Dona Rushford, explaining calming strategies.  These strategies are taught and used here at school, but can be used at your homes as well.


    The SLANT Strategy

    As noted in the book, Teach Like a Champion 2.0, it is very important to teach our students procedures in the classroom.  Like practicing the procedures for lining-up, it is also important to teach our students techniques to help them pay attention, focus, and learn in school.  Many of our teachers are using the strategy of SLANT.  In the video below, Mr. Specht’s class created a song to help us all remember this strategy.  SLANT is an acronym:

    Sit up


    Ask and answer questions

    Nod your head

    Eisenhower Students Meet RSVP Pen Pals

    For the last three years, Eisenhower students in Ms. Derry Spotten-Martinez’s 4th grade class have exchanged pen pal letters with Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) members. This last May, for the first time, students and adults got to meet each other at an end-of-the-year “Gathering of Pals.” It was great fun—Ms. Spotten-Martinez set out board games which gave the Pen Pals time to talk and meet. Then they had cookies and punch.

    Pen Pal-ling has been a great way to inspire kids to write, and the volunteers really enjoy it, too. While this is a fine way for RSVP’s busy members to tutor/mentor a child, it is also an excellent way for less mobile members to continue to tutor/mentor from the comfort of their own homes.

    An article about the program appeared last spring in 50+ Lifestyles.  Click here to read it.Bev and Pals_72 Pen Pal Jayne_72 Pen Pal LuJuan_72 Pen Pal susie and gumbo_72
