SIGN-UP NOW! - Asynchronous Course Soaring Balloons and Heavy Shackles Social Emotional Learning Course Monday, June 6th - Friday, June 24th CLICK HERE to register : https://www.roe47.org/page/pl-opportunities-workshops In this asynchronous course, participants will watch Heidy LaFleur’s SEL presentation from our SEL Summit. Then, Google Classroom will be utilized to view resources and hold group discussions. There will be a culminating zoom meeting in the last week of the three week course. Watch Heidy LaFleur as she shares a powerful true story, based on real life trauma, that provides practical strategies to understand how our Actions, Words & Expressions (AWE) have a direct impact on the outcome of interactions with our students. Trauma transforms the student experience and practicing our perspective can assist in a child’s journey to reclaim livelihood. We are empowered to be part of the problem or part of the solution with ALL kids. Our AWE can either add weight to their shackles or fill their balloons to soar. Participants will end the course with strategies from the Social Emotional Alphabet. These practical and powerful strategies will help our kids who have been traumatized, feel misunderstood or take frequent detours from what is expected. These strategies will help build relationships with every child regardless of behavior. Gain perspective that you do have the “magic wand” to guide behavior. Come see what the “magic” is about so you can make EVERY day the BEST day for EVERY child!

Friday's School Celebration Fulton Elementary School FIELD TRIP FRIDAY IN 2ND GRADE The 2nd grade classes were FINALLY able to take a field trip, after COVID restrictions were lifted! The 2nd grade classes went on a bus to Circa 21 in Rock Island to watch the musical, Grace for President. This musical is based on the children’s book, Grace for President, by Kelly Dipucchio. After the play, the students went to Empire Park in Hampton for a picnic lunch and some good old fashion play time. A good time was had by all! We thank the PTO for their generosity in helping us fund our field trip!

2022 Marigold Award WINNER Tara Propheter, 6th Grade, Rock Falls Middle School If you're looking for the epitome of a marigold, you'll find it in Tara. I have worked with Tara for over 17 years and have experienced her "marigold effect" first hand, but this nomination is based on what I've seen her do over the last 2 school years. The impact she has made in this building starts with the small things: text reminders to our team, late night email exchanges with parents, running extra copies in case someone forgets, or checking in on a classroom with a substitute to make sure the day runs smoothly. She sacrifices her time for the benefit of her students and team. Over the last 2 years Tara has also worked with our mentoring program and has once again gone above and beyond by working not only with her assigned mentee, but by reaching out to other new teachers to make sure they are getting the support they need. During the lockdown she designed ways to track which students had been contacted and which ones were falling behind; she organized a schedule so that the workload could be divided up in a more balanced way. I remember how much anxiety and stress we were all feeling during that time, but she was always solution focused and offered support to everyone who needed it. Those qualities didn't begin with the pandemic, but where it has brought out the worst in many people, it brought out the marigold in Tara. This year brought back some normalcy to our building and Tara has taken on other roles to help solidify that feeling. She splits a lunch supervisor position and works with students who stay after school to wait for our late bus. Additionally, she was selected to work with a student from the Pathways program. They observed her classroom, participated in activities, and planned a lesson to teach with Tara's guidance. Her impact as a "marigold" stretches beyond her one year of math instruction! Many of her former math students come back to her for help, which often means they are studying concepts that she doesn't teach but she ALWAYS finds a way to learn alongside them so they can successfully complete their work. Her students come back year after year (decade after decade) and she maintains meaningful relationships with them: writing letters of recommendation, offering words of advice, or just celebrating successes by their side. Tara's actions will continue to have an impact on her communities for years to come and I will be forever grateful that this marigold was planted next to me. Nominated by : Sharee O’Donnell
