Dear KAMS family~

 

Earlier this month, I shared my diagnosis of Young Onset Parkinson's Disease with my colleagues, my parent community, and my student community. I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate the outpouring of support I have received. There truly is no other place like KAMS. You are kind, you are supportive, you are loving, you are my friends, you are my family and above all… you are my village and my community. What I didn’t mention in my attached letter that went home with my students is how deeply scared I am…thank you for standing by my side and making this scary journey a bit more manageable.

 

Many of you have asked about participating in the walk or getting a TEAM HARPREET T-shirt for The Moving Day San Francisco Walk being held by the National Parkinson's Foundation on Sunday, May 7, 2017. It will be held at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco. Or even just getting a TEAM HARPREET T-shirt to show your support for me. 

 

The Moving Day San Francisco Walk

Registration Opens at 9:00 a.m. and the walk will begin at 10:30 a.m. You may choose from a 1 mile, 2 mile, or 3 mile walk...Hey, I have Parkinson’s…. this is asking a lot and going to feel like a marathon to me. The routes all walk (not run J) along the Embarcadero on the waterside of the street.

 

It supposed to be a fun and inspiring fundraising event that unites families, friends and communities both large and small in the fight against Parkinson’s disease. This celebration of movement will feature a family friendly walk course, a kids area, a caregivers relaxation tent and a special Movement Pavilion featuring yoga, dance, Tai Chi, Pilates, etc. all proven to help manage the symptoms of Parkinson’s.

 

If you’d like to join me on the walk:

Google Search for 'Moving Day San Francisco' or click on this link: 

http://www3.parkinson.org/site/TR/MovingDayEvent/NPFHQ?fr_id=2571&pg=entry

 

-Select 'Join A Team' and join as a New Participant

-Search for 'TEAM HARPREET' and then click Search for a Team

Once located, select Join (step 1)

Select fundraising goal (you don't need to have one to join) if you’d like then next step (step 2)

Enter personal details and select Next (step 3) 

Agree to terms and conditions and select Next (step 4)

Review and select Complete Registration (step 5) 

All done J

 

Also attached are the directions  and images if you are interested in ordering a TEAM HARPREET T-shirt. T-shirt orders will be accepted until April 17th in order to ensure delivery by the walk.

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Dear parents, 

 

Have you talked to your kids about how and why they use sites like Snapchat, Kik, ASKfm, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc? How do they communicate with others? How are they 'seen' by others? What is their “digital footprint/reputation”?

 

Many kids don't realize that all social media sites are public space, even if they have a password, even if it's set as a private profile. Through our Digital Citizenship lessons, we tell kids to not post anything they don’t want their friends to know, or their parents to know, or the WORLD to know. I personally say, 'anything you put out on social media can/may be held against you...'. We have all heard the stories of kids who lose out on scholarships, college admissions, and even jobs based on what their digital footprint reveals about them. 

 

As the Digital Citizenship Coordinator at Katherine Albiani Middle School, I have seen our kid’s dependence and addiction to electronic technology get greater with each passing year. After showing the trailer of Screenagers to my classes, they nodded in agreement that this documentary is an honest depiction of what a teenager's life is like in 2017. 

 

Please consider joining our KAMS School Social Science Department and ASB as we host a Digital Citizenship- Parent University Family Night screening of the documentary, “Screenagers” at 6 pm at Katherine L. Albiani Middle School in the MP room.

 

Screenagers Trailer

 

In the Elk Grove Unified School District Superintendent Chris Hoffman’s letter to parents sent out earlier this week he addressed the issue of bullying. Social Media...it can take on a life if it's own. Often when our counselors and administrators are mediating a situation between students, social media is involved. Mr. Hoffman stated, "We may not be able to eradicate bullying, but we can help provide the services and resources our students and families need to address it when it happens, and do all we can to prevent it in the first place." We take the issue of bullying and cyber bullying very seriously here at Katherine Albiani Middle School. Ms. Donna McNeel and ASB will have many activities planned for students during #unfollowbullying week next week here at KAMS.

 

Please find attached the letter you received last week via Schoolloop inviting you to our Digital Citizenship Parent University being held on Wednesday, February 15. We hope you and your 'Screenager' will be able to join us. Don't forget to RSVP at the following link

Attention 8th graders signed up for Disneyland

 

You are responsible for the following information:

  1. Don't forget that your 2nd payment for $100 is due by February 7th.  If you do not pay your $100 by the end of 8th grade lunch, you will be moved to the wait list. No special arrangements will be made.  We have 35 people on the wait list, therefore you must pay on time or you will be moved to wait list behind those whose payments are up to date.  

         If you have already paid the full amount of $300, then your spot is secure.

 

      Mark your calendar...  You must attend your  mandatory Bus Meeting that will be held on the MP Stage         during 8th grade lunch.  You are to bring your lunch and come straight to the Mp stage.

      The Meeting will take most of your lunch.  If you fail to make this meeting, you will be put on the wait list.       Also, there will be important information that you will need to bring home to your Parent/ Guardian to be       signed.  You will need to return that information the very next day to Student Services 

 

Bus meeting Dates:

 

  • Bus#1    Tuesday, February 28th  at 8th grade Lunch on MP Stage 
  • Bus #2   Monday, March 6 at 8th grade Lunch on MP Stage 
  • Bus #3   Tuesday, March 7 at 8th grade Lunch on MP Stage 
  • Bus #4   Wednesday, March 8 at 8th grade Lunch on MP Stage 

If you are on Bus #5, we will know if it will go or if you will be on a wait list by the end of the day February 7th....

 

Thanks

Ms. McNeel

Below is the audition roster, which is based on the order forms were turned in. If you still need to turn in your form, please bring it to Mrs. Campbell in MD-27 today. You will be added to the list.  

 

Please plan to arrive to MD-27 at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time. Although we will do our best to stay on schedule, please plan your ride home for 15 minutes after your time - just in case we run behind. If you want to trade times with someone, you need to work it out with that person and then talk to the Stage Manager so that she can update the schedule.

 

If you want to audition and sing for a particular role, please plan to do so at the very end of auditions. If time allows, we will have you sing during your scheduled time - but it just depends on how things are going.

 

Remember, an audition is like a job interview. Be positive, respectful, and do your best to appear confident and prepared. Dress comfortably but nicely. You don't want your clothing, accessories, hair, or makeup to distract the panel from your performance. You will be dancing, so wear clothing and shoes that allow you to move. (You may take your shoes off and dance barefoot if you prefer.)

 

Break a leg!

 

Mrs. Campbell

We had a terrific turn out this afternoon for our info. meeting and vocal workshop!  Thanks to everyone who showed up and worked hard! You sounded great and I'm so excited about this show!

 

I posted the audition vocal "Every Day" in the Drama Locker on School Loop. (From the SL homepage, before you log in, just click on Student Life, then Drama, then Drama Homepage, then you'll see the locker items on the left.) There is a folder of monologues there too.

 

Don't worry if you missed the meeting! You can still audition! Check SL news for forms, or stop by MD-27 to see Mrs. Campbell
