SUMMER READING

The research is clear that children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect. The following resources and articles provide information about summer reading and summer learning loss. Plus you’ll discover great activities to encourage kids to learn, read, and have fun in the summer sun. For all of our summer resources, browse Topics A-Z: Summer Reading.

Hello Kincaid Families!

Milestone Testing begins this week for our 4th grade students! It is their turn to showcase their learning and show what they know! A good night’s sleep, a good breakfast, and arriving to school on time gives your child that extra boost to start the day!

This week is also Career Week! Every student will participate in an activity or event to explore and learn about careers.

This Friday is our Volunteer Brunch from 8:00 – 9:00am. The Kincaid staff is honored to give back to all the volunteers who have donated their time and money to Kincaid this year! Thank you so much for helping make Kincaid an amazing place!

MAKE A JOURNAL JAR

A journal doesn’t have to be a diary. It can also be a book where your child writes about ideas or answers questions, like “If you could do anything next summer, what would you choose?” A journal jar is a place to keep all those ideas and questions.

Wash and decorate a wide-mouthed jar, like one that used to contain peanut butter. Then, write or print out journal prompts on slips of paper. Ask your child to pull out one prompt each day and write about it in her journal.

Reading aloud is one of the most important things parents and teachers can do with children. Reading aloud builds many important foundational skills, introduces vocabulary, provides a model of fluent, expressive reading, and helps children recognize what reading for pleasure is all about. It takes a bit of time and energy, but it is definitely worth it!

EVALUATING INFORMATION SOURCES

These days, there are many, many sources of information. Children are bombarded by messages from several media and online sources, books, friends, and people at school. An important step in developing information literacy is learning to evaluate the source of information, especially for online information. It’s helpful to help your child consider some of the following:

  • Who is the author of the information?
  • What do we know about the author or organization? Is that person an expert? Is that organization respected by others?
  • Why was this information written? Is the author trying to persuade you to buy something?
  • Does the information present fact or opinion?
  • Is the information recent? When was it published?

Parents and teachers can help children develop research and information literacy by sharing their love of learning. Encourage their curiosity about the world and desire to find out more. At the same time, help them become wise consumers of the information they find. These are skills that will last a lifetime.

Week of April 15 – 19, 2024

Hello Kincaid Families!

As we enter into our last weeks of school, we continue to focus on student learning, as well as prepare for a multitude of celebrations and fun traditions! To maintain our safest and most productive learning environment, we continue to reinforce Kincaid expectations and follow the Cobb County Student Code of Conduct.

Please be reminded of Cobb’s F Policy on PERSONAL COMMUNICATIONS/ELECTRONIC DEVICES: 1. Elementary and Middle School: Students shall not use, display, or turn on smart watches, cellular phones, video phones, or electronic devices during instructional time, class change time, recess, breakfast, or lunch. This means that students must keep their devices turned off and in their backpacks while on the bus, in the school, and anywhere on campus. Students may turn on their devices after they get off the bus and leave the bus stop area.

*****************************************************

TUESDAY, APRIL 16
ZAXBY NIGHT

This Tuesday is Zaxby’s Spirit Night! Join us between 5 and 8pm at the Zaxby’s on Sandy Plains and tell the cashier that you are from Kincaid. 15% of your purchase will be donated back to Kincaid!

*****************************************************

NEXT WEEK:

***************************************************

3rd, 4th, 5th GRADE PARENTS
MILESTONE TESTING

In compliance with the Federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and Georgia HB244, students in grades three through five will be assessed with Georgia Milestones End of Grade (EOG) assessments in English Language Arts and Mathematics, and students in grade five will also be assessed in Science.  

These assessments measure how well students have mastered the grade level standards. Kincaid teachers and students have been working all year to ensure that students are prepared to take these assessments.  Preparations have included teaching students to answer more complex questions and to provide supporting evidence.  

Georgia Milestones EOG assessments are administered on the computer. These assessments include selected-response (multiple-choice) and technology-enhanced items in all grades and courses, as well as constructed response (open-ended), extended constructed response, and extended writing-response items in English Language Arts.   Students will take these assessments following the schedule above. Please remind your student of the importance of doing their best on each section of the test and ensure your child reports promptly to school on the scheduled test days.      

After Cobb County School District receives the test results, you will be able to access them via CTLS   Parent. If you have any questions about Georgia Milestones assessment administration, please contact Mrs. Griffeth. Information regarding the Georgia Milestones   Assessment System can be found at gadoe.org.

*******************************************************************

EVALUATING:
FACT VS. FICTION

One of the first skills in developing information literacy is being able to tell the difference between fact and opinion. A fact is a statement that can be proven true or false. An opinion is an expression of a person’s feelings that cannot be proven. An awareness of the difference can be developed through questions and conversations. Engage your child in conversation using the words “fact” and “opinion” and have him identify statements of both types. For example, “Chocolate chip cookies are the best kind of cookie.” “Mommy has dark brown eyes.” “School should be cancelled on sunny days.” “There are 12 months in a year.”

ATTENTION KINCAID DADS!

Want to get involved in giving back to our great school? If you’re looking for a unique opportunity, we’re excited to announce the return of our Kincaid F.B.I. (Fathers Being Involved), starting in early May!

 In years past, you’ve probably seen dads assisting with the Friday morning carpool duty, along with other volunteer opportunities throughout the school year. Well, we are re-launching the Kincaid FBI program to coincide with Teacher Appreciation Week and would love to see as many Dads as possible to assist with a couple fun activities we have planned.

 If you’d like to learn more and add your name to the list, please reach out to Kevin McAlpin (kmcalpin82@gmail.com) as soon as possible. We will have a few Friday mornings of carpool to close out the 2023-2024 school year, along with a Thank You cookout for our teachers and staff, plus we’d love to get your ideas for other activities we can do for the future. 

UPDATE: We have over 20 dads signed up so far!!! Thank you!!!

“PLAY TELL ME HOW”!

In this activity your child pretends she’s writing to a space alien who doesn’t know anything about our culture. This alien does everything exactly as it’s said or written.

Your child’s job is to choose an everyday task, like brushing her teeth or making a sandwich. Then, she needs to write step-by-step directions about how to do the task for the alien. When she’s done, you get to be the alien and try to follow the steps exactly as she wrote them. She may be surprised at what she left out!

WRITE A CONVICE ME LETTER

Writing isn’t just about telling stories or reporting on books. There are many ways your child can use words, including trying to convince others to agree with her. You can help her practice this type of writing by letting her argue with you—in writing!

Choose a topic you don’t agree on, such as allowance or bedtime. Have your child write you a letter trying to convince you to change your mind. The catch? She has to use facts, quotes and logic to back up her argument.

Hello Cougar Nation!

Thank you for supporting the Cougar Run…our largest fundraiser of the year! The Kincaid Foundation uses the money raised to fund the Kincaid PTA, STEM Program, Reading Celebrations, Book of the Month Program, Teacher Stipends, and Teacher Grants. Our most amazing students and deserving teachers all benefit from this generosity!

Thank you!!!! Your donations met our school-wide goal is $38,000! Kincaid keeps 100% of all money donated. Your child’s classroom has earned many class rewards, and the students have earned a school-wide reward, of Principal Tennyson and Asst. Principal Griffeth, riding chickens at school. KC Cougar found out, and is planning to show up for mischief with the chickens. Yikes!

We are only $1200 away for the next school-wide reward, of students earning a bounce house for Field Day. What an amazing bonus to a fun day! Last call for any final donations at: https://gofundschools.com/kincaid/

Thank you to the Kincaid Foundation, and all the parent volunteers that make this event possible! You help Kincaid SHINE!!!!

BOOKS! BOOKS! BOOKS!
DID YOU KNOW?

Cobb County School District students can check out five books at the Cobb County Public Library without a library card!  All they have to know is their seven-digit student school identification number and their birthday month and date password (mmdd).  The best part is those books have no set due date or overdue fines and if your child returns them to our Kincaid library, the books will be returned to the Cobb County library for you!  Amazing way to increase literacy in your home!

***************************************************

COMMUNITY EVENTS

Join your friends for the annual Northeast Cobb Community Egg Drop at Sprayberry High School on March 30, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hosted by Piedmont Church and Cobb County School District, and sponsored by Superior Plumbing and C&S Paving, this event will be fun for the whole family. There will be food, games, a DJ, activities, and of course egg hunts for everyone. 

Kids will marvel as a helicopter drops thousands of eggs onto the Sprayberry High School football field to kick off the hunt. There will be more than 90,000 eggs and candy for the various hunts.

The funds raised from the Egg Drop will go to support multiple organizations in the community. Last year, more than $14,000 went right back to the community, with Kincaid receiving $500 from this event!

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS AT KINCAID

Birthday treats can be pre-ordered through the café only by using this order link. Do not send in treats, balloons, or party invitations for select students.  Use Membership Toolkit to contact other families about birthday parties

Parents can also have their child’s birthday displayed on the school marquee using this order link.  

*******************************************************************

WHEN READING WITH
AN EMERGENT READER

  • Model finger-point reading. That means to follow the words with your finger from left to right as you read them. As your emergent reader starts to read, they will learn to do the same thing.
  • Encourage “reading” or “pretend reading.” This reading from memory provides practice with retelling and practice navigating books correctly.
  • Talk about the story. When your child is finished with a book, be sure to talk about what happened in the story, and maybe “re-read” favorite parts. Talk about any interesting words or new concepts.
  • Let them know how proud you are! By sharing a book with a child, you’re sharing the joys and excitement of reading.

Thank you for your continued support of Kincaid as we set out to live our daily mission to Reach, Inspire, Support and Engage every student – every day!
