From the Principal’s Desk

Dear Tyee Families,

Tomorrow, January 22, 2019, we will be having a school-wide assembly to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Tyee students will be shown a video of a speech he gave in 1967 to students at Barratt Junior High School in Philadelphia, PA, called “What’s in Your Life’s Blueprint?”  We will also have three student presentations, two spoken pieces and one song.  Following the assembly, students will have an opportunity to engage in some type of reflection activity based on what they take away from the video/assembly.  Should you wish to know more about the assembly, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  My hope is that your child will engage in conversation with you about their reflection.

This is a reminder that we will have no school on Monday, January 28, 2019.  This is noted as a Professional Development Day on the district calendar.  Tuesday, January 29 is the first day of the second semester.  Some student schedules may change if they have any semester classes.  Students will receive an email later this week with instructions on how to access their schedule in StudentVUE, as well as the second semester lunch schedule.  Please keep in mind, no schedule changes will be made unless there has been an error.  Our enrollment is now at 1,051, which, I believe, is the largest Tyee has ever been.  Keeping that in mind we have little-to-no space to make schedule changes.  We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we do our best to work with our growth!

In Partnership,

Susan Thomas,

Principal

From the Principal’s Desk

Dear Tyee Families,

I want to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to this amazing community.  I get to see a number of you at school events or volunteering, but I seldom get time to tell you how much I love this community and the support you give our school.  Often times it is easy to focus on the negative, or the things that aren’t going right.  For 2019, I would like to be better at expressing my gratitude.  So, thank you for your support of students, staff, and our school district!  There is an African proverb that states, “It takes a village to raise a child.”  Tyee Middle School has quite a village!

Sincerely,

Susan Thomas

From the Principal’s Desk

Dear Tyee Families,

Happy New Year and welcome back to school!  I hope students had a relaxing and rejuvenating two weeks off and have come back focused and ready to go!  I am very excited for the rest of the school year.

I would like to take this opportunity to share information from the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) about a rapidly increasing problem our youth/teens are facing across the nation: teen use of e-cigarettes, often referred to as “vaping” or “juuling.”  Just 7 years ago, e-cigarettes were relatively unknown; but today, teens are seeing them used in high school bathrooms and classrooms, at parties, and in social media.  In 2017, just over 1 in 10 high school students used an e-cigarette; now it is in 1 in 5.  That’s more than 3 million kids, and after several years decline, overall tobacco use is up, largely due to the rising popularity of e-cigarettes.  Additionally, many teens do not view these products as harmful and some aren’t even aware that most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, highlighting the need for a targeted youth education effort about the dangers of teen use of e-cigarettes.

In September 2018, the FDA unveiled its new public health education campaign, “The Real Cost” Youth E-Cigarette Prevention Campaign.  With as many as 80 percent of 8th, 10th, and 12th grade students not perceiving great risk of harm using e-cigarettes regularly, we are looking at a large group of teens who are susceptible or already experimenting with e-cigarettes.

While the study/campaign addresses primarily high school students, this has become an issue at the middle level as well, and Tyee Middle School is no exception.  According to the 2018 National Youth Tobacco Survey, there has been a 48% increase in overall tobacco use among middle school students, largely attributed to e-cigarette use.  These items should not be on campus at any time.  I have attached some resources for your perusal.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. 

Sincerely,

Susan Thomas

Bus Paddle Camera Enforcement Begins January 7

As a reminder, student safety stop paddle cameras will be enforced when students return from Winter Break on Monday, January 7.  Drivers who illegally pass a school bus will be issued a $419 ticket. We encourage you to visit our Student Safety Stop Paddle Camera Program page to watch a new video highlighting the importance of the program, as well as view frequently asked questions and refresh your knowledge on when it is and is not legal to pass a stopped school bus.

The safety of our students and staff has been and continues to be a focus area for the district and is highlighted as part of the student well-being priority in our new strategic plan. We thank you for your continued support and partnership in efforts to keep our students safe.

 

Hello 6th Grade Families!

All Tyee students should now have an active Naviance account. Naviance is the Bellevue School District program for College and Career Exploration, generously funded by the Bellevue Schools Foundation. Here is the link to login: https://bsd405.org/about/initiatives/college/naviance/ . You can use your student’s login information they created when they registered. Ask them to login for you and show you the program. They had a lot of fun using the SuperMatch College Search during their first lesson. At the middle school level, we use this program for exploration. This account will follow students into high school, where they will begin to narrow their options and apply to colleges directly through Naviance. If your student was absent on the day of the lesson, please ask them to talk to their counselor about getting registered.

 

BSD Job Fair, February 2

We are hiring!  Bring your resume and cover letter

Dear Tyee Families,

I hope you enjoyed your 4-day weekend and were able to engage in some rest, relaxation and festivities!  As we head into the winter season we encourage families to become familiar with information about unexpected school delays or closures.

Families will be notified of changes to the school day via SchoolMessenger. Information can also be found on the district website, Facebook, Twitter, FlashAlert, on the BSD Newsline by calling (425) 456-4111, and from local TV and radio stations.

The following is also available for review on the district website:

  • Schedule information for scenarios including delayed start, early dismissal, and school closures
  • Altered bus stop locations

For additional details please visit www.bsd405.org/closure.​

Finally, I’d like to thank the PTSA and YES (Youth Eastside Services) for sponsoring the most recent Principal Coffee where participants discussed adolescent mental health and resources available for Tyee families.  What I’ve come to find is there has been relatively little information communicated to families about mental health challenges our students may face.  I encourage you to spend some time reading information from the list of sources.

From the Principal’s Desk

Dear Tyee Families,

As you know we do not have school on Monday in observance of the Veterans Day holiday.  I thought I would take this opportunity to share a bit about the history of Veterans Day.  Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War 1.  Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938.  Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American Veterans – living or dead – but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.  Thank you to those of you in our community who served or serve our country.

Don’t forget World Kindness Day is Tuesday!  The hope is to make kindness the norm.  Here are 7 ways to start making kindness the norm in your daily life:

  1. Send an uplifting text to a friend or family member.
  2. Let that driver merge into traffic with a wave and a smile.
  3. Include intentional moments of kindness, laughter and delight in your daily routine.
  4. Go slightly outside of your comfort zone at least one a day to make someone smile.
  5. Share a compliment with a co-worker of friend.
  6. Reach out to a family member you haven’t spoken to in a while.
  7. Treat someone to a cup of coffee or tea (a friend, stranger, or even yourself).

“If you have the power to make someone happy, do it.  The world needs more of that.”

Fondly,

Susan Thomas

National School Psychology Awareness Week

School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) is November 12-16, 2018.  This year’s theme is “Unlock Potential. Find Your Password!”  A password is a personal key for unlocking any number of areas of potential in our lives. Our goal is to connect with how modern youth and adults unlock things (e.g., gaming levels, phones, devices, codes) and to highlight how thinking about specific skills, assets, or characteristics as “passwords” can lead to positive growth. School psychologists are particularly skilled at assisting students and staff in unlocking the resources, proactive and preventive skills, and positive connections necessary to unlock one’s full potential to thrive in school and life (from National Association of School Psychologists).   We are grateful for our Tyee Psychologist, Marcie Yturraspe, for all she does for our students and families.  We appreciate you!

 

The Tyee Holiday Bazaar is coming Friday Nov. 30 from 5:30-8:30 pm

Come as a vendor or shopper. New this year is a gingerbread house contest (register online at Tyeeptsa.org) with gift basket prizes open to Tyee families and staff.

This event raises funds to support Tyee PTSA including Student Social Activities like Halloween, Neon Social (March), Game Night (April) and Field Day (May).

 

ParentVUE

We would like to encourage you to log-in into ParentVUE. This will give you access to the student’s grades, attendance and other related-school information. Updating student’s data, allows us to communicate academic progress to the appropriate contacts, distribute important information as needed, contact families in emergency situations, and respond to a medical situation appropriately. It’s important to ensure that all information is current, accurate and complete.

Dear Tyee Families,

On Tuesday, November 6, all students will be asked to participate in the Fall Panorama student survey. The Panorama survey is a tool that BSD uses to collect student feedback on school climate and classroom culture, to help us improve our practice. Individual student responses are confidential. Individual teacher reports are only accessible to that teacher. Students take the survey online. The survey includes multiple parts: a school climate survey and one or two teacher surveys.  In secondary schools, students fill out two teacher surveys, for teachers randomly selected from their schedules.

As indicated in our Curriculum Night presentation in September, our focus is on Culture & Climate, Student Well-Being, and High-Quality Instruction.  We hope to integrate more student voice in our goals, planning and decision making at Tyee.  Please encourage your student to take their time when responding and to take the survey seriously.  We will let the community know when the school-wide results have been returned to us.

Our annual Veteran’s Day Assembly will be held on Thursday, November 8 between 9:40 and 10:50AM.  This year ASB is featuring two speakers, student-directed art projects, as well as music and performances from staff and students.  I am looking forward to a very meaningful presentation.  Thank you to our ASB advisers and cabinet for their tireless efforts on behalf of the Tyee student body.

Fondly,

Susan Thomas
