Dear Families,
Welcome to autumn! Great things are happening at PCS. Our PBIS team held our first school
wide celebration on September 5, 2014. We began the celebration with our new school song
which was created by a team of students and Mrs. Sally Rogers, our former music teacher. The
song is titled “Take Care of Each Other” and we will open each future celebration with singing.
In addition, our celebrations will be a time to recognize the accomplishments of our students.
Prior to each celebration all teachers will choose a student to honor for improvement in
academics or in the choices they make, for showing acts of kindness or just for being great!
Students that are honored will receive a Star Student certificate and bracelet. Our next
celebration is scheduled for October 17, 2014.
Take Care of Each Other
CHORUS:
At PCS we take care of each other
Share with each other
Take care of each other
At PCS we treat each other with respect
To keep our community strong
Take care of yourself
Confidence is key
Always remember that you are you!
Take care of yourself
Respect and care for others
Always have a positive attitude
Chorus
Take care of others
Treat them with kindness
Always remember to be honest and fair
Take care of others
Use the Golden Rule.
Always be a role model for our school
Chorus
Take care of our school.
Treat the building with respect
Always remember that safety comes first
Take care of our school
We’re nice in our community
Helpfulness is something we can always rehearse
Chorus
“At PCS we care for ourselves, for others, and for our school.”

We have received a few inquiries regarding student participation in the Smarter Balanced
assessment. Dr. Bisceglia consulted with Educational Consultant Abe Krisst from the
Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) and has included relevant points from his
response for your information:
Connecticut received flexibility from the U.S. Department of Education (USED) last year
to minimize the burden of double-testing, i.e. administering both the CMT and pilot
SBAC assessments. This federal approval does not waive the fundamental
“participation” requirement. The USED continues to expect states and local
educational agencies to ensure full participation in state assessments in all tested
grades at each school for all students, and for each subgroup of students within the
school. For Pomfret Community School this means all students in Grades 3-8.
Additionally:
 Districts and schools must make every effort to ensure that all students
including those enrolled in district-wide programs and out-placed to approved
private special education programs are assessed.
 States are required by the federal government to assess all students in
tested grades annually. The tested grades are grades 3 through 8 and one
grade in high school. With Smarter Balanced, the high school assessment grade
changed from grade 10 to grade 11. It was therefore necessary that one cohort
of high school students during this transition to Smarter Balanced to be tested in
both the CAPT and the Smarter Balanced. For districts that chose to administer
the SB-FT in grade 11 last year in lieu of CAPT in grade 10, the transition
occurred a year earlier than in other districts.
 The CSDE will report these participation rates to the public and to the USED.
 Participation in state assessments is required by federal and state law;
there is no legal provision for parents to opt their children out of taking the
state assessments.
I have just a few reminders this month:
Parent Pick-up Line: Please do not use your cell phone while you are waiting for your child.
We are very concerned about the safety and well-being of our students and staff and need
everyone’s full attention during dismissal.
Emergency Contact Information: Be sure to let the office know if you have any changes in
your contact information so that we are always able to reach you.
Early Dismissal and Late Arrivals: To the extent possible, schedule appointments after
school hours so that your children are able to receive every available minute of instruction. It is
also important that our students arrive on time each morning. According to our handbook,
“Students who are not in their homeroom by 8:30 AM are considered to be tardy and must
report directly to the office. Students are allowed to be tardy three times per semester. Any
student who is late more than three times will receive a detention for each tardy beyond three.”
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in these matters.
Best Regards,
Susan Imschweiler
Principal

Dear Pomfret Community Members,
The 2014-2015 school year began in what has been described as a “smooth and
seamless” opening. Much credit should be given to the entire Pomfret Community
School (PCS) faculty and staff for investing in the foundation work so necessary for each
new year. Planning, scheduling, and organization are integral ingredients to any new
school year and PCS staff devoted considerable time in each area to insure they were
as ready as possible for our children when they entered PCS on August 26.
2014 CMT Update: Science Results for Grades 5 and 8
We recently received our 2014 Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) Science scores
for our fifth and eighth grade students. Among the fifth graders that took the (CMT) in
Science, 64% reached goal level and 88% of our students were at or above proficiency.
Among the eighth graders that took the CMT in Science, 78% of students reached goal
level and 90% were at or above proficiency. These scores are above the state
percentage of students at or above proficiency, but below the average percentage
scores for our District Reference Group (DRG). Principal Imschweiler presented a
detailed analysis of the 2014 CMT science results at the September 24 Board of
Education meeting. Additionally, all parents were mailed their child’s individual student
report.
On a related matter, Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) test
results from last spring’s school-wide testing are tentatively scheduled for release in
December. We will keep you posted.

Connecticut Common Core Standards: Myths and Facts
The Connecticut State Department of Education’s (CSDE) move to the Common
Core Curriculum continues to be in the news lately. Therefore, I’ve decided to again
include an important myths and facts information sheet developed by the CSDE that I
believe helps clear the air of fiction and misunderstanding regarding the Common Core
Curriculum.
X Myth: The federal government developed the Common Core State Standards.
 Fact: The federal government did not develop the Common Core State
Standards. The desire to develop higher, shared standards was expressed by
states early in 2007 at the Council of Chief State School Officers’ (CCSSO)
Annual Policy Forum. State education chiefs and governors, through their
membership in CCSSO and the National Governors Association (NGA), led the
development of the Common Core State Standards. This timeline and
background document outlines the process for the development of the Common
Core.
X Myth: These tests represent a new federal intrusion into education and will result in the
collection of intrusive and inappropriate data on children.
 Fact: For decades Congress has required assessments of student learning for
accountability under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The
2001 reauthorization of ESEA, known as the “No Child Left Behind Act” enacted
during the Bush Administration, expanded those federal testing requirements to
include state testing of every student in language arts and mathematics in grades
three through eight and once in high school. In 2010, the federal government
funded the State of Washington to act on behalf of a consortium of states to
develop new, next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core State
Standards in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. While federal
funding currently supports the research and development work of the Smarter
Balanced Assessment Consortium, all policy decisions about the structure and
content of the assessments are made by the member states based on input from
“At PCS we care for ourselves, for others, and for our school.”

stakeholders across the country. At the conclusion of the federal grant in
September 2014, Smarter Balanced will become an operational assessment
system supported by its member states. States will make all policy decisions
with regard to the collection, storage, and use of student assessment data.
Smarter Balanced will adhere to all federal and state privacy laws.
X Myth: The Common Core prevents teachers from teaching literature.
 Fact: The standards do not limit reading to non-fiction, but suggest a balance
between perspectives. Recognizing that teachers, school districts, and states
should decide on appropriate curriculum, the standards do not offer required
reading lists. They establish what students need to learn, but do not tell teachers
how to teach so they can tailor instruction, allowing for continued flexibility and
creativity. Related resources: The Role of Fiction in the High School Language
Arts Classroom, by Susan Pimentel and David Coleman and The Common Core
Ate my Baby and Other Urban Legends, by Timothy Shanahan.
X Myth: These assessments will result in standardization of teaching and learning.
 Fact: A founding principle of Smarter Balanced is that teachers and students
need high-quality data, tools, and resources to support improvements in student
learning. Smarter Balanced isn’t just an end-of-year accountability test. It is an
assessment system that features flexible, non-secure interim assessments to be
offered at teachers’ and schools’ discretion throughout the school year and a
digital library of formative assessment tools, practices, and professional
development resources built by teachers, for teachers to improve the quality of
information collected through the daily classroom activities of assignments,
quizzes, and observation of student work. The end-of-year tests will help schools
evaluate how well their students performed by comparing their aggregate data
with aggregate data from other schools across the nation. The end-of-year
assessments also will empower students and parents by providing them with a
“At PCS we care for ourselves, for others, and for our school.”

clear indication of how well their children are progressing toward mastering the
academic knowledge and skills necessary for college and career readiness.
X Myth: Nothing is known about these new tests.
 Fact: Smarter Balanced aims for complete transparency. All of the key
documents describing the assessment (content specifications, item
specifications, item writing training materials, test blueprints, accommodations
framework, achievement level descriptors, technology specifications, etc.) are
available to the public on the Smarter Balanced website
(www.SmarterBalanced.org).
X Myth: These new assessments are untested.
 Fact: Smarter Balanced has incrementally tested the content of the assessment
and the technology that will support the assessment. Smarter Balanced has
already completed:
o
Cognitive Labs: Individual students provided feedback to test developers
about their experience with the innovative test questions, accommodations
for students with special needs, and the testing software.
o
Small-Scale Trials: Promising types of questions and software features were
further tried out with hundreds of students.
o
Pilot Test: Students at about 5,000 schools across the Consortium responded
to a preliminary pool of test questions and performance tasks.
X Myth: These tests will require advanced technology that schools don’t have and can’t
afford.
Fact: The Smarter Balanced assessment is being designed to work with the computing
resources in schools today. The assessments can be offered on very old operating systems and
require only the minimum processors and memory required to run the operating system itself (for
example, the summative assessment can be delivered using computers with 233 MHz processors
and 128 MB RAM that run Windows XP). Likewise, the file size for individual assessment items

will be very small to minimize the network bandwidth necessary to deliver the assessment online.

**************NEWS FROM THE COMPUTER LAB**********************
We are fortunate to have brand new computers for this school year. These are
HP All in One computers that replace the approximately 8 year old counter parts.
Students have already noticed a difference in speed, connectivity, bigger
screens, and less glitches with online programs. Also new this year is the
inclusion of grades K-2 into the regular specials lab rotation. These students are
learning to write their name and play alphabet style games to get them used to
using a computer within a school setting.
It’s going to be another great year. Students in grades 3-8 will continue to
improve their keyboarding skills with the Ultra Key program. Students will do
short term projects to learn effective use of graphics, writing with a connection to
literacy, MS Office products, Pivot, and other programs that we can find to
enhance learning.
Check out my Web page on the PCS Classrooms links for the computer lab with
regular updates that are targeted to specific grades.

8th Grade News
Open House:
On Wednesday, September 10, 2014, the 8th Grade hosted our annual Open House for
parents. At this important meeting, we discussed the 8th Grade program and the
Washington, D.C. trip (and the associated fundraising activities – some which have
already begun). Please remember that the total cost of each 8th Grader’s trip and class
expenses amounts to $700.00. Remember – the Butter Braid/Cookie Dough fundraiser
is kicking off and the Cat’s Meow fundraiser is coming up soon.
Thank you to those who were in attendance at Open House. As always, if you have any
questions of concerns, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher at the school
((860)928-2718) or email (the address is the teacher’s
[email protected]).
Homework:
Just a reminder - the homework expectation for 8th Graders is on average 70-90
minutes per night. It is expected that students write assignments in their student
planner. The 8th Grade Teachers will post homework on the PCS website as information
for all parents and students. If it is a “light” homework night, reading and review are
standing assignments. The homework can be found at the following link:
http://www.pomfret.ctschool.net/Classrooms/Galligan.M/My%20Webs/gr8nightlyhomework.htm .
In addition to the regular homework, there is a reading expectation for all 8 th Graders of
one-hundred twenty-five (125) minutes per week of reading. Please check in with your
child on what they are reading and what tasks they are being asked to complete.
High School Choice:
We have had our first high school guests at PCS (Marianapolis Preparatory School) and
we will soon be traveling “off-campus” with trips to Woodstock Academy and the
Killingly Vo-Ag Center (at Killingly High School). Please check in with your child for
updates. Woodstock Academy is the designated high school for all Pomfret students. As
a reminder, should your family be exploring other high school options, all of the other
schools require an application process, tests may be required and visits might need to
be planned. Keep an eye out in the local media for Open House events throughout the
fall. Mrs. Gilloran, our guidance counselor, can be contacted if you have any questions.
Progress Reports:
It’s that time already – Progress Report grades for the First Trimester close up next
week (10/2). Progress Reports will be distributed on Friday, October 10, 2014. Please
be on the lookout for the reports.

Student Banking Program
Putnam Bank offers students (ages 5-18) the opportunity
to learn the value of saving money through our weekly
Student Banking Program.
Here’s how it works:
 Every Friday morning from 8 to 8:30 Putnam Bank visits
the PCS Cafeteria, where students can make deposits into
their accounts.
 For every five deposits the student makes at the school they
receive a small prize; so not only are they saving money for
the future, they are also rewarded for their deposits!
 There is no minimum balance to maintain in the account,
and no minimum deposit required. Any amount deposited
counts toward earning a prize.
 The Student Saver account earns interest.
 Only $5 dollars is required to open the account.
For more information, call our Pomfret
Office anytime at 860-928-0545 or stop in
and see our friendly staff in person to
open your account! We’d love to help
you start saving!
