Teachers kicked off 19-20

Fri, 2019-08-23 08:50

The 2019-2020 school year kicked off for teachers on Thursday.

Superintendent Richard Scaletta kicked off the day with the opening address, hitting on a variety of new and old topics for the upcoming year.

During this opening presentation, Scaletta issued out four Superintendent Medallions to individuals who live out the District’s mission and core values by going above and beyond the normal call. This year’s recipients included Lon Jenkins (High Expectations), Judy Scaletta (High Expectations), Eric Lathrop (Responsibility) and John Walsh (Commitment).

Following the opening ceremony, high school and elementary teachers headed to the cafeteria to hear from presenter Denise McDowell on best practices in the classroom for developing learners. During this workshop, McDowell presented to teachers on using high impact strategies to move students from surface to deep learning and then how to transfer their learning to real world applications.

JWPMS teachers headed to the middle school to learn implementation of new procedures regarding Parker Pride, our School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports, which is a key component of establishing MTSS (Multi-tiered Systems of Support) at the middle school.  Teachers spent the afternoon learning about identifying struggling students and kids who are in need of enrichment.

The MTSS Process is designed to meet the needs of students experiencing literacy difficulties in school. The team reviews school-wide universal screening data and other district assessments for students and develops strategies that address the students’ needs in the regular classroom setting.

The District is in its second year of a five-year implementation to develop the MTSS program for students in grades 5-12. The MTSS program has been in the District at the elementary levels. McKean Elementary School’s MTSS Program has been highlighted as Model Program through the Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit #5 and has been recognized by Edinboro University’s School of Education.

GM wraps up New Student Orientation

Thu, 2019-08-22 15:27

General McLane wrapped up its last New Student Orientation Day on Thursday with General McLane High School’s New Student Orientation Day.

General McLane High School’s annual Freshmen Orientation started at 8 a.m. this morning and lasted until noon. The day, which focuses on helping the students feel welcomed and part of the school, started with the doors of the high school gymnasium swinging open and this year’s freshmen streaming in to cheers and applause from upperclass “Link Crew Leaders.” Following the welcoming ceremony, students split into large and small group sessions with student leaders and advisors.

General McLane’s Freshmen Orientation is part of a national program known as Link Crew.This high school transition program welcomes freshmen and makes them feel comfortable throughout their first year of high school. Although this program starts with Freshmen Orientation, it continues throughout the year with academic and social follow-ups between the Link Crew Leaders (upperclassmen) and the freshmen.

General McLane launched this program in 2008 as the District’s effort to focus on the ninth grade transition. This was a result of critical research that showed that “graduating freshman to sophomore status” is a key determining factor as to who graduates from high school. According to the research, students who do not earn enough credits in 9th grade to move to 10th grade are at higher risk for dropping out.

Freshmen Orientation is one of the many student orientations that took place this week. Kindergarten Orientation and New Student Orientations also took place this week at each school.

In addition to New Student Orientation, McKean Elementary, Edinboro Elementary and James W. Parker Middle School each hosted an open house for new and returning students.

Edinboro High School hosts reunion

Wed, 2019-08-14 09:47

Recently, Edinboro High School held a reunion for members who graduated from Edinboro High School!

An estimated 180 people gathered at Nick’s Place to celebrate with former Edinboro High Turtles, including Elaine Mills-Hinkle (’40), Margaret VanHouten-Walker (’39) and Catherine Capp-Firer (’39)!

Prior to 1959, Edinboro operated a junior/senior high school for students in grades 7-12. It was located in what is now Compton Hall on the campus of Edinboro University. McKean also operated a school for students in grades 7-12. It was located in a building that has since been razed and was located on the property where our current elementary school is located. The mascot for Edinboro was the Turtles and for McKean, the Rams.

McKean Elementary Trail receives $7,000+

Fri, 2019-08-09 13:47

McKean Elementary School’s Nature Trail was one of nearly 20 organizations to recently receive funding from the Erie Community Foundation.

The Erie Community Foundation approved partial funding for a Helping Today grant in the amount of $7,467 for the “McKean Community Cross-Curricular Fitness Trail” project.

The McKean Elementary Fitness and Nature Trail is the brainchild of McKean Elementary Health and Physical Education teacher Lisa Roberts.

“I am so honored the Erie Community Foundation believed in our trail project and allocated funds toward a section,” said Roberts. “It was amazing to hear everything that ECF does for our Erie county community and that they felt so strongly to include us in their awards.”

The new multipurpose trail will run along the back perimeter of McKean Elementary School and include areas for biking, climbing, balancing as well as interactive sensory experiences and so much more. All of the construction will be made out of natural materials like wood and rock. These areas will be able to be used for cross-curricular exploration.

There are six phases of this trail project totaling close to $40,000. The six phases of the project include: paths and walkways, science exploration, a bike area, pumpkin patch-obstacles, a climbing area and music/sound and sensory exploration. All areas will have designated spots for classroom utilization and for teachers to adapt their content through QR codes etc. They are also planning on emphasizing history and vegetation and wildlife specific to McKean to study. Dahlkemper’s Landscape Architects and Contractors will be constructing the trail.

So far, more than $27,000 has been raised and two phases are now complete: the initial trails and Littles Island. The next project will be Lees Pumpkin patch and the Bike Skills Area. Dahlkempers landscaping is doing the construction and Roberts said they are hoping to have more progress this fall or early next spring.

If you’d like to make a donation: Donation forms can be found here

Questions about the project, please contact Lisa Roberts at lisaroberts@generalmclane.org or (814) 273-1033 ext. 4020.

The Erie Community Foundation is hosting Erie Gives Day on Tuesday, August 13. All donations to the General McLane Foundation will receive a prorated match by the Erie Community Foundation. You can make your donation here: https://www.eriegives.org/organizations/general-mclane-foundation

Engineering students earn third place

Tue, 2019-07-02 13:31

General McLane High School students ranked third place in the Design/Build category of a national engineering competition.

The Varsity A team earned this recognition at the Technology Student Association Tests of Engineering Aptitude in Mathematics and Science (TSA TEAMS) Competition, which took place in Harbor, Maryland on June 28 through July 2. 

General McLane students who placed include Vincent Spada, Kaley Berger, Spencer Conaway, Claire Campbell, Nate Price, Aida Shadeck, Ethan Greenleaf and Tyler Massey.

The Design/Build category of the competition was an impromptu project involving that programming and represents a very high level of knowledge application. The design/build task required students to engineer an attachment to the front of a small robot to clear away items and go through a maze.

TEAMS is an engineering aptitude, mathematics and science testing competition designed to help middle school and high school students discover their potential in the engineering field. The National Competition is deemed “the toughest engineering competition in the country.”

General McLane had two teams and 16 students qualify for the national competition based on results from the state level. Only the top teams in the state at each level qualify to compete at the national TEAMS competition.

There are three divisions, Middle School, 9/10 level and 11/12 level.  In each division, they name those who scored in the top 10 in these four categories: Design Build, Digital media, prepared presentation and Best in the Nation (overall score of all three events).

Students competed against teams from prominent areas like Silicon Valley, where their high school campus includes an entire building for STREAM:  Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering and Math.

The 9th / 10th grade students, which took first overall in the state competition, includes Nicholas Tysiachney, Ellison Conaway, Calder Martin, Riley Clever, Wesley Hakanen, Zachary Roland, Elena Halmi and Spencer Green.

The 2019 TEAMS competition topic, “Engineering the Brain,” centered around topics and activities related to Artificial Intelligence.

General McLane High School physics teacher Dave Treusch coaches the junior/senior teams and mathematics instructor Rick Terella coaches the freshman/sophomore teams.

This was General McLane’s fourth year competing at the national level. TEAMS was started by the Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS).

Congratulations to all of our student participants!

McKean fourth graders code drones

Mon, 2019-06-10 08:22

This year McKean 4th graders learned to code and fly drones in math class.

Students first learned about drones and the uses for them in our world. Then, the class discussed using drones for delivering food and water to victims of disasters, dropping water to put out forest fires, various uses in the military, or even just to a quicker way to deliver our pizza or online shopping order.

Then, students had the opportunity to program their own drone! Each drone has a launcher and grabber attachment that can be coded to perform specific actions. The student’s mission was to take off, go through a hula hoop, launch 3 “GPS tracking spheres,” and return home.

Students created an input/output table and ran many tests to determine how many seconds to code the drone to get it to go a certain amount of centimeters. They developed this rule for both the x and y axis.

Next, it was time to use Tynker, an app for coding on the iPad, to program the drones to complete this task.

It was a perfect example of organized chaos, says McKean Elementary’s Mr. Hutchison! At the end, he says they all agreed it was a success.

Thanks to Denise Bakich, GM’s recently retired 5th grade teacher, who came to work with the team!

Another big thanks to McKean Elementary PTA, who funded the drones for the school.

JWPMS students host grand-opening for learning garden

Tue, 2019-06-04 10:16

James W. Parker Middle School students hosted the grand opening for the Learning Garden yesterday.

Students in Mrs. Tuttle’s classroom hosted for their grand prize winning cake, show a 2-minute slide show and then proceeded outside for the grand opening of the Dole and Captain Planet Foundation Learning Garden.

The Learning Garden was one of the prizes received after students were named one of the three National Grand Prizes winners for their Super Delicious Strawberry Pineapple Cake recipe in Dole’s “Get Cooking With Fruit Student Recipe Contest“. The Learning Garden provides schools with raised garden beds, soil, seeds, cart & tools, and interpretive signs so students can start their own 80 square foot raised garden.

After receiving the materials for the garden, the students planted the seeds indoor, water and cared for the plants, spread the pea-gravel, built the garden boxes and put them in place, filled the garden boxes with soil, transferred the plants into the boxes and now are maintaining them as they watch them grow!

Students in Mrs. Tuttle’s class used the contest as an opportunity for a cross-curricular activity that included math, reading, community-based instruction, technology and science.  Students researched Dole products, viewed their available products at a grocery store, brainstormed ideas on incorporating Dole products into a recipe, calculated costs of needed ingredients and supplies, invented a recipe, revised the recipe and then wrote, typed and emailed the final recipe.

The recipe they entered was featured in James W. Parker Middle School’s cafeteria for their Thanksgiving holiday meal dessert. Food Service Director Nicole Keller submitted the recipe.

A big thanks to the following individuals who helped to make this a success: David Campbell, Dawn Johnson, Carolyn LaFata, Williams Moats, Laurie Santos, Deb Lathrop, Marge Horne, Eric Lathrop, Nicole Keller, Laura Allwes, Richard Scaletta and Mark Niezelski.

McKean Elementary hosts Hula-Hoop Showcase

Mon, 2019-06-03 15:20

McKean Elementary School second graders celebrated the end of their dance residency program with a showcase for their friends, classmates and family members.

The students learned basic dance concepts and many hula-hoop moves and tricks through artist Jennifer Dennehy, who was welcomed to McKean in March as part of the Erie Arts & Culture‘s Artist-in-residency program.

Prior to the showcase, each student made and decorated their very own hula hoop and made art on a tapestry with special hula hoops that splattered paint.

The Artist Residency Program is a collaboration between Erie Arts & Culture and General McLane, one that provides a professional artist(s) where the artist (s) works with a small group of learners over a period of time. General McLane’s residency was provided through an Erie Arts & Culture grant.

Through Dennehy’s time she provided second graders with an opportunity to learn dance basics, hoop dancing, a dance routine and hoop art. The focus of program was on self-esteem, expression and staying healthy through a variety of mediums.

Erie Arts & Culture is a local organization whose role is to promote, support, and develop arts and culture at the regional level; ensuring broad opportunities for residents and tourists throughout communities in Erie, Crawford, Venango, Warren, Mercer, and Lawrence counties to engage with the sector educationally, socially, and economically.

Next year, the school looks to host its second artist-in-residency program to help with the McKean Nature Trail.

Haugh receives JWPMS Children’s Peace Prize

Sat, 2019-06-01 14:02

James W. Parker Middle School Jacob Haugh received the first-ever JWPMS Peace Prize Award.

Students in Ms. Shee’s class have been learning about the International Children’s Peace Prize and the young people who are doing incredible things to make a difference in their community.

As a class, students designed their own JWPMS Children’s Peace Prize. The students collaborated to decide on the criteria needed to be eligible for the award. Then, each student wrote an essay nominating a young person of their choice. The students shared their essays with each other, and then voted on the young person they thought fit the criteria best.

The students presented the award to seventh grader Jacob Haugh on Friday.

Throughout the last four years, Haugh has raised more than $35,000 for Wins for Kids, which supports Pittsburgh Pirates Charities and the Center for Prader-Willi Syndrome at the Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh. 

Haugh’s efforts didn’t go unnoticed as he was recognized as Pittsburgh’s 2017 National Philanthropy Day Outstanding Youth Award Winner. Haugh’s initiatives have made him one of the largest individual donors to the program and were featured in a Root Sports Pittsburgh documentary-like-story. This year, Pittsburgh Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle sent his second video specifically thanking James W. Parker Middle School for their efforts.

Congratulations to Jacob and what a wonderful presentation by the students!
