Keep Calm and Facilitate On-Using Facilitation Techniques to Drive Successful IEP Meetings for your child

 

We know that ARD (IEP) or 504 meetings are intended for the greater good of every child with special needs, but when conflicts arise it can be challenging to stay focused on the end goal. A successful meeting is not just about "getting to yes"; it’s about building trust through effective communication. Parents/guardians, teachers, and administrators can all benefit from using facilitation skills during the IEP process. Parents/Guardians will learn about IEP Facilitation, a process in which all team members learn 1) focused questioning and listening skills, 2) how to attack the problem and not the person, and 3) striving for a consensus that is agreeable to all parties. This session focuses on the importance of communication, relationship-building, and data to drive good decisions for students.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Enjoy your DAY Mothers!


Dedicated to MOTHERS!

Dear SST Sugar Land Learning Community,

Students, Families, and staff continue to inspire me with the ability to embrace our new learning environment and experiences. Bright Dolphins! Keep up the good work and remember that Dolphin’s P.R.I.D.E. will always be on your side!

SST Sugar Land wishes a Happy Mother’s Day to all the Grandmas, moms, aunts, teachers, and all women who are responsible for nurturing the future……

Truly and surely, you are the strongest and most selfless members of our society.

Dear students,

today, we celebrate Mother’s Day. Importantly, this day provides us with an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to our mothers. The support, guidance, direction, and love from our mothers are why we are who we are.

Mothers around the world are leading the way, juggling jobs and working from home, while joining classrooms online, keeping order and stability in your home, and still finding time to be just that little bit more patient with everyone.

 

THEY are awesome!

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers in SST Sugar Land Family.

 

 

Please enjoy visiting our parent portal to see what we have prepared for you!

Here you go.....

United in Hope-Join us for fun! The Art of Character and Self-care Thursday May 7 @ 5:00 PM.


EARLY MOTHER'S DAY GIFT TO OUR MOTHERS! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

   Relax and Enjoy! ZOOM LINK WILL BE SHARED VIA PARENT SQUARE!

 SST Sugar Land presents two artists: Karina Parker and Sacha Lazarre:

 Parents, Students, Staff!

 Join us on Thursday, May 7 at 5:00 pm.via zoom. (Link will be shared via parent square)

 United in Hope – The Art of Character and Selfcare

 Please see the links to the artists’ websites:

http://www.karineparker.com/

http://sachalazarre.com/

  Our artists are proposing to teach you 2 things:

 How to draw an eye design and a Zentangle Heart design + maybe some calligraphy using the white Board and very short videos if needed.

  1. The Eye design that they will have created will allow them to add under the eye words about what they would like to change positively in their future by using a specific character trait. Ex: I see that I am making our world more peaceful by developing my LEADERSHIP skills….
  2. Heart design will allow them to write words about a specific character trait you would like to nurture in their Heart and that is associated with a happy memory. Here is a simple example with the letters for Hope. We could use simple calligraphy with doodle design around it and add colors or not. The white Board will allow me and Sacha to show you how to create designs.

 

        Then we will invite you to take a deep breath and gently close your eyes and


I invite you to place your hands on your heart in such a way that you form the shape of a butterfly. Imagine that your heart is a butterfly heart, taking flight transporting you to a place of calm. Think of a place that is real or imagined. As you think of this place of safely and calm, what place comes to mind? Perhaps it is a place in nature that you particularly like or a place indoors that feel just right for you. Perhaps It is a place somewhere in time, in your distant past. You may know the place well or you may never have been before. If you find yourself moving from place to place, relax and enjoy the process, but eventually allow yourself to come to rest in one place. Take a breath. Look around. What do you see? What do you hear ? What do you smell? What do you feel? Notice any sensations you may feel in your body. What are you wearing? Wherever you are, Make yourself comfortable. Make this place perfect for you. You may choose to add things or take things away. Are you alone or is someone else there as well? I invite you to focus again on your wings, as you prepare to land, notice your breath. Breathe deeply and enjoy the feeling of relaxation and calm. Know that you can return to this place anytime you wish to relax and to be replenished.

Then you will be invited your eyes and share a reflection in the chat by asking Is there anything you would like to share when you did the exercise? What was the experience like for you?

 Then we will finish by singing a short song as a community!

 We hope to see you!

Message from the Superintendent April 18, 2020


Dear SST Family,

 

Governor Greg Abbott has announced through an executive order that schools across Texas will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. All SST campuses in San Antonio, Corpus Christi and Houston are complying with this order. The Governor’s action serves to protect the health and safety of students, staff and the community. Remote instruction and meal distribution will continue.

 

Our SST teachers, staff and leadership have worked non-stop to both deliver engaging instruction and to allow students opportunities to successfully complete grade level goals. I have had the pleasure of viewing some outstanding lessons delivered by rock star teachers. Adjusting to remote delivery and mastering remote teaching skills has been a steep learning curve. SST is improving distance learning instruction each day, and I am grateful to our entire SST team and our parents for the advancements we have made in a short time. It takes all of us working together to help our children succeed.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged education, and it has posed unexpected changes in our daily lives. Economic difficulties have permeated our government, institutions, and businesses and have touched many families. These challenges often are a heavy burden and stressful. If any parent is experiencing academic or other difficulties that SST can help address, please start by calling your child’s teacher and next the principal. There are resources available, and we want to help families connect with community support.

 

I am proud of how SST has responded. Together will we complete this school year and look back with pride at how we came together to successfully complete the 2019-2020 school year. We are doing our best to support each student each day, and at the same time, we are looking ahead to determine how we will make up for any lost learning and reopen schools in August. Again, it takes all of us working together to see that all students are successful. We will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to support the success of our students.

 

With gratitude,


Mehmet Nalcaci

SST School Closure Extended until May 4th

Dear SST Family, 


The Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order to close all schools in Texas, both public and private, until Monday, May 4. The gravity of this announcement emphasizes the pressing and urgent need to shelter at home. There is no cure or vaccination for COVID-19, and social distancing presents the best course of action to stop it.


The executive order issued by Governor Abbott impacts six million Texas children, and abiding by the COVID-19 recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is critical to protecting all children and vulnerable individuals. We must each do our part to halt COVID-19.


In a recent message I stated that SST will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. We are more committed than ever to serve SST children, parents and staff in ways that support learning and thriving as individuals, families and an educational community. All our SST family has responded remarkably to this unparalleled, fast paced public health challenge.


We are strong, resilient and innovative. We will grow through this experience by working together and by taking positive action. We will keep you updated through emails, texts and social media. Again, I am grateful to each one of you and all that you are doing.


Sincerely,

Mehmet Nalcaci

Superintendent


Food Distribution Update

    In response to the school closures scheduled through April 10, SST schools are working to address the nutritional needs of our students by providing drive-through food distribution.


    Beginning Monday, March 23 from 11am - 1pm, drive-through food distribution will be offered at select SST campuses across the districts Monday through Friday. Food will be provided based on one meal per student/child 18 years and under. The student/child does not have to attend SST schools in order to receive a meal. Drive-through food will consist of one breakfast meal and one lunch meal.


Free Grab&Go Meals at SST Sugarland Staring Monday, March 23, 2020

  

Grab & Go Meals available at SST Sugar Land!

Starting Monday, March 23, SST Sugar Land will begin offering Grab and Go meals at no cost to anyone 18 and under, at our campus every day from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Meals will be served Monday - Friday. Meals will include 1 breakfast and 1 lunch per child.

 

SST Sugar Land is grateful to be able to offer this service so that we can ensure that our students continue to receive helpful meals, and we are appreciative of the efforts of our Child Nutrition staff members who are making it possible. With that in mind, we ask for patience and understanding as we begin serving these meals and continue to refine our processes to better support our families as efficiently as possible.

 

Please Note:

Please note:

  • Food delivery will occur in the back at the dismissal area. Please get in line the same way you would for normal dismissal.
  • In order to maintain and honor the recommended social distancing in order to reduce the risk of spreading illness in our community, individuals should not leave their vehicles.
  • Children do not need to be enrolled at SST Sugar Land to get free breakfast and lunch, but all children will need to be present in order to pick up the meals.
  • Children must be under the age of 18
  • No one is allowed to enter the building.


Let us stay CONNECTED


      In order to facilitate a fun and positive at-home learning environment for our students while promoting an ongoing focus on academics during our campus closures, the SST-Sugar Land will host a “Virtual Spirit Week” next week on our campus Facebook pages.
Each day, we’ll ask families to share photos, videos, or drawings of themselves studying, working on their at-home academic packets, reading a book, or demonstrating positive character values (ex. completing household chores, helping a family member, etc.) while dressed in a unique theme for the day.
The themes are similar to those chosen during our normal on-campus spirit weeks and were selected so that families would NOT need to make an additional purchase or leave their homes in order to join in the fun.
How can you help? When you see the Facebook posts with the theme of the day, comment with photos or videos of yourself and/or your team members in each day’s theme using the hashtag #sstsugarlandathome. You can also ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ the daily posts and/or photos posted by families.


Let's Celebrate Our Success

Dear SST Sugar Land Learning Community,

 

We would like to recognize some of our students for their achievements throughout our first online week.

 

These students were selected by their teachers for their success in online resources and online classrooms. They have been working very hard and diligently to complete their assignments with excellence. We want to encourage our students to keep up their good work! We would also like to thank our parents for being supportive and devoted during these times.

 

On Fridays, we will be sending congratulations newsletter to our community.

 

Congratulations to our bright dolphins for their success!

 

AND THE AWARD GOES TOOOOOOOO.............


Dear SST Sugar Land Learning Community,

I want to thank to Mr. Oz, Mr. Muttalib,Mr. Bayjanov and Mr. Genc for their time today!

They went to our students’ homes to deliver the chrome books. I was able to join one group and able to see our students and their parents!

They all said they missed the school very much! We missed you all too!

I am hoping and praying that our community is safe and healthy.

Mehmet Okumus, Principal


Updates in Special Education

?

Dear Parents,

 

Click on the link for updates in special education programs. 


Online Learning Materials for upcoming two weeks!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

First of all, we all hope that everybody is safe and healthy.

The new challenge of the Coronavirus has brought us into an unfamiliar zone. In the past, we have worked and stood strong together, and we will stand even stronger now. Ensuring that the School of Science and Technology Sugar Land continues to operate smoothly, in particular supporting our students’ learning and meeting their social and emotional needs, is at the lead of our decision-making. With that in mind, since Monday, March 16, I asked our teachers to communicate with parents and students to provide those services to our children. Beginning Monday, March 23, all SST Sugar Land staff will be available during their normally scheduled work hours for such items as virtual meetings, planning sessions, student support, and phone check-ins.

 

As you are all aware, we are currently trying to switch to online learning at this time. 3rd through 7th-grade teachers are asked to create their online google classroom accounts. Students should be invited to join with their school email accounts. Pre-K through 2nd-grade teachers are encouraged to use Class Dojo or Class Tag to communicate with our students and parents. All our teachers are encouraged to use online Zoom meetings with their students. Teachers are also encouraged to use Facebook Live to arrange online reading sessions with their students.

We all know that this will take some time, but we are tirelessly working to make some progress in online education.

 

For the upcoming two weeks, starting on Monday, March 23, 2020, teachers will be using weekly core subject packages that our district provided.

 

Please click on the link below to see the documents:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/13sqDBNoYVOVhcp1BDcHC2Hok71eHSp-A

Please click on the grade that your child is in and help your children on completing the assignments that were given. As we all know, everyone is going through very hard times, so we will not take these online assignments for a grade and the students will not return these assignments. Our teachers will go over the daily documents with your children. Teachers may assign some other educational activities and materials for your children. During these circumstances, I believe we can still progress our learning.

 

We want to make sure that, if for any reason, you do not have access to the internet, you are able to request a hard copy of the assignments. Our district has provided all the resources in the core subject areas for the first and second week. Please reach out to your child's teacher and we will prepare what you need.

We designated a time for the parents to pick up the requested hard copies from campus on Monday and Tuesday from 4:00 pm. to 6:00 pm.

We will deliver the packages in our dismissal area. We will kindly ask you to place your child's name and grade on your car's windshield.



Parents/Guardians,

 

Let’s turn these days into positive. Please make sure that our students are using our online resources from their Clever accounts; reading A to Z, IXL, Aleks, etc. I am planning to send a nice newsletter on Friday to acknowledge some of our students for their achievements, like the most time spent online award, the progress award, and the most skilled award and etc.

 

Our student support team is always here to help you with any of your questions:

Mehmet Okumus, Principal, mokumus@ssttx.org

Ghazala Ahmad, Dean of Academics, gahmad@ssttx.org

Beth Boudreaux, Dean of Students, bboudreaux@ssttx.org

Asma Ali, Operations Manager, aali@ssttx.org

Joseph Oz, Empowerment and Enrichment and Federal Coordinator, joz@ssttx.org

Naciye Maldar, Campus GT Coordinator, nmaldar@ssttx.org

Anthonia Fabiyi-Ipoga, Campus SPED Coordinator, afabiyiipoga@ssttx.org

"Prince Jones, Rhonda, Campus ESL Coordinator, rprincejones@ssttx.org>

 

Patience, understanding, and flexibility will be needed during this timeframe as we do what is necessary for the safety and well-being of students, staff and the entire SST Sugar Land community.

We hope that everyone in your family stays healthy and protected from the virus.

 

Respectfully,

Mehmet Okumus, Principal


SST School Closure Extended through April 10, 2020


Dear SST Family
 
         The School of Science and Technology will be closed through April 10, 2020 system wide (San Antonio, Houston, and Corpus Christi). This decision was made in line with guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as state and local health organizations and educational systems. SST administration will re-evaluate on Monday, April 6, to determine whether a longer closure beyond April 10 will be necessary.
 
      Teachers and campus leaders will be in contact with parents and students. Two major areas that may concern you are instruction and nutrition. 
 
       Instruction:   We know that there is no software program or learning packet that can substitute your child’s teacher; however, we will do everything in our capacity to minimize the academic impact of this unforeseen event. 
 
       During the closure SST leadership, teachers and staff will work from home to address instructional needs by providing online and print materials. 
An online folder with instructional material (by grade and content area) will be shared with all parents and students by Friday, March 20. 
Students without access to computers at home can pick up printed packets at their campus offices on Monday and Tuesday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
These high-quality instructional materials, designed by SST teachers and the curriculum department, are for self-study or self-study with home support and guidance. 
Students are also asked to work on their weekly instructional software program goals by logging in through their Clever accounts.
Nutrition: Families will be able to pick up breakfast and lunch meals for students during the closure. Parents will receive more detailed information about pick up times and locations. A list of other feeding sites provided in each city will be included so parents have options for convenient pick up.
 
       SST will continue to closely monitor the situation during the closure and provide operational updates as necessary. At this moment, our local, national and global communities are working together in service to each other and the most vulnerable individuals among us. I appreciate your patience and commitment in doing what each of us can to do minimize the impact of the Corona virus while continuing to support learning and our children.  
 
Stay healthy, and thank you for your ongoing support, 
 
Mehmet Nalcaci
 
SST Superintendent

Mock STAAR on the Way! February 24-28, 2020

 

 

Dear SST Parents,

The Mock STAAR is fast-approaching. A Mock STAAR is a practice for the real STAAR in April and May. Everyone in the building will be participating in this practice, but only grades 2 through 7 will take the tests.

As we all know, testing can be stressful and draining - that is why we will need our parents’ support!

What can you do to support your child?

  • Make sure that they eat a healthy breakfast.

  • Make sure that your child had enough sleep - you’ll be surprised to see the number of students sleeping during the test!

  • Come to school early - make sure they are not late.

  • Encourage them. Testing may give your child anxiety. Make them feel secure by speaking positive words!

  • NO Backpacks

  • PARENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DROP OFF LUNCH. We will have a closed-campus.

What does your child need to prepare?

  • Lunch if they usually bring their own (PARENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DROP OFF LUNCH).

  • No need to bring snacks, these will be provided.

  • Review, review, and review!

  • NO Backpacks

Here is the schedule for the testing days:

Monday 2/24: No Testing

Tuesday 2/25: Math 2nd-7th

Wednesday 2/26: Reading 2nd-7th

Thursday 2/27: Science 5th&7th and Writing 4th&7th

Friday 2/28: Makeup Day

 

Dear Parents,

The exams of your child are to start soon, I know you are all really anxious for your child to do well.

But, please do remember, amongst the students who will be sitting for the exams there is an artist, who doesn’t need to understand Math… There is an entrepreneur, who doesn’t care about History or English literature…There is a musician, whose Chemistry marks won’t matter…There’s an athlete…whose physical fitness is more important than Physics… If your child does get top marks, that’s great! But if he or she doesn’t…please don’t take away their self-confidence and dignity from them. Tell them it’s OK, it's just an exam! They are cut out for much bigger things in life. Tell them, no matter what they score…you love them and will not judge them. Please do this, and when you do… watch your children conquer the world. One exam or low mark won’t take away…their dreams and talents. And please, do not think that doctors and engineers…are the only happy people in the world."

Black History Month Bulletin Board Decoration

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “African American History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.

The NWEA MAP assessment

Dear SST Awesome Parents,

The NWEA MAP assessment begins on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 (1st grade) and Monday, January 27 (K, 2nd-7th grades)! This will occur for three weeks and each grade level will be taking specific tests. Please see below to see what your child will be taking.

 

What is an NWEA MAP assessment?

 

NWEA stands for Northwest Evaluation Association. NWEA is a non-profit organization that has assessed over 4.5 million students. NWEA has a presence in 49 foreign countries, 50 states, and 3400 districts. MAP stands for Measures of Academic Progress. MAP is an online assessment that is aligned to the Common Core standards.


Why is it important to teachers and students?

 

MAP tests are important to teachers because they keep track of progress and growth in basic skills in either Math, Reading, Language, and Science. The test scores let teachers know where a student’s strengths are OR if help might be needed in any specific areas. Teachers use this information to help guide individual and group instruction in the classroom. Grade levels, subject areas, schools, and the district will use results to continue to improve teaching and learning and helping each student grow as much as they can.


Please see which tests your child will be taking:


Testing Schedule

 

1st grade: January 21 (Reading), January 23 (Math)

Kinder: January 27 (Math for KA/KD), January 28 (Math for KB/KC, Reading for KA), January 29 (Reading for KD), and January 30 (Reading for KC/KB)

Wellness News for the Holidays

Students and Parents, it is that time of the year where we begin to feast and pay little attention to exercise and eating healthy. Parents with moderation you can enjoy the holidays in a healthy way. Choose fresh fruit as a festive and sweet substitute for candy. Select just one or two of your favorites from the host of tempting foods. Find fun ways to stay active, such as dancing to your favorite holiday music. Be active for at least 150 minutes per week with moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as a brisk walk that makes your heart beat faster. Help kids and teens be active for at least 1 hour a day.

Parents begin setting up the New Year’s resolution with your students from raising their grades up to setting up their diets. In addition to the New Year’s resolution students can reflect on the past year and make new goals for the next coming year!
