  • Give the Gift of Education #GivingTuesday - JHS190 PTA

    The PTA Executive Board hopes everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
    For many of us, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the "unofficial" start of the holiday season. This year, let's
    make Giving Tuesday the official start of the gift-giving season!
    Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to come together in unity. Generosity is what
    unites people of all races, creeds and political views around the world. Generosity gives everyone the power to
    make a positive change in the lives of others and is a core value that anyone can act upon. We are proud to be
    part of this global celebration of generosity and kindness.
    You can make a difference in your child's education! From last Tuesday, November 29 through next Tuesday,
    December 6, you can help raise funds by contributing to the Russell Sage PTA's Call to Make a Difference
    campaign.

    Our goal is to raise $3,000 or more for programs and activities for the Russell Sage community; all donations of
    any amount will make an impact!
    Thank you for your generosity!!

    Fall Spirit Days

    SUBJECT FOCUS 

    ELA

    Grade 6

    In November, 6th graders will continue with our first unit, "Discover Your Voice." They will use annotating skills, small group discussion, and inferencing to analyze how a variety of texts address the essential question: What are the ways you can make yourself heard? The texts we will be reading for Unit 1 include Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woods, "OMG! Not Another Selfie",  and "What's So Funny, Mr. Sceizka?" by Jon Sceizka. Students will engage in small group discussions to annotate and analyze these texts for the author's purpose and central idea. In October, the sixth graders made literacy goals based on their Beginning-of-Year iReady scores. Through the next few months, they will be working towards these literacy goals in ELA and core foundations.  

    Grade 7 

    The 7th grade ELA team is continuing to explore the first unit of HMH called "Reality Check." Students will use different types of texts to explore the author's purpose, main idea, and many other literary elements, all while working to answer the question, "What can blur the lines of what is real and what isn't?" Students will be reading a variety of texts to explore this question, including the article "Not Everything as It Seems" by Arnetta Carter.

     

    Grade 8 

    In the month of November, all ELA students will be accessing the recently acquired Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Curriculum. One of the main goals of the ELA Department is to teach at least three units from the HMH Curriculum over the course of this academic year. HMH provides teachers with a tool for systematic and explicit instruction through a rich and diverse platform that aims to build and improve the foundational skills students need to be successful across all disciplines. HMH's platform also supports differentiation and the continued practice of foundational skills. 

      

    The 8th grade ELA students will commence the HMH Curriculum with a Technology Unit - "Gadgets and Glitches" with the essential question: "Does Technology improve or control our lives?"  We will read several short stories, along with the anchor text that aligns with the unit to delve into the implications of the increased use of technology and the dependence it causes on us as a society.  Following the sequence of the HMH learning model: Unit Opener, Analyze and Apply, Collaborate and Compare, Reader's Choice and End of Unit Activities; students will closely examine the effects of our augmented reliance on technology.  During the unit, students will have the opportunity to analyze different texts, collaborate with each other and participate in rich discussion to share and build upon their classmates’ ideas.  Through the use of HMH and Google Drive, students will further exchange ideas and support each other and practice the citing of logical text-based evidence in support of their claims. This will be evidenced in their culminating assignment which will be an expository essay on this topic.



    WORLD LANGUAGE

     

    French - Grade 8  

    8th Grade French Scholars will continue focusing on grammar in the month of November, especially on most frequent verbs on the proficiency exam and possessive adjectives.

    Hello, Sage families! My name is Mr. Kiefer Rondina or Mr. R for short and I am the new dance teacher at JHS 190 Russell Sage. I am a dancer, teacher, choreographer and I am excited to join the Sage community and I look forward to an amazing and productive school year ahead! For the past few weeks, the students and I have been working on our class agreements and emphasizing the dress code for dance. As mentioned to all classes, students are required to wear black clothing as part of the dress code. In addition, shoes are not allowed inside the classroom to maintain a clean and safe space to dance. Please help me in making sure these expectations are being met by the students! Now to kick us off this month, we will be exploring Jazz Dance in the 19th & 20th Century! Students will be introduced to the foundations of jazz as well as popular moves like the Charleston, the Lindy Hop, Swing, etc. 

     

    SPEECH

    On October 27, 2022, Mrs. Loew and Mrs. Rothbort took the 8th grade Speech students took a walking trip to Forest Hills High School for a guided tour. The special part of this trip was, the tour guides were former Sage speech students who are now juniors and seniors at FHHS. Our Sage students were given a guided tour of the building as well as a presentation by the FHHS speech students about their school.  We then had a question-and-answer session where many interesting and pertinent questions were asked by our 8th graders and answered by the high school students. This is also one of our students’ speech goals, asking and answering WH questions for clarification and information.

    We had a great time and the students got to see a side of FHHS that most do not get to see.  We will culminate this trip by writing thank you letters to our wonderful student tour guides at the high school.  We look forward to taking next years’ 8th graders on this fabulous annual trip next year.

    WOOD WORKING

    Our Woodshop classes have been working very hard on creating a variety of useful and fun projects.  Here is a picture of some of the projects our 6th graders have made during the last few weeks.  The students have made bird houses, cell phone stands, napkin holders, and step stools.

    Currently, our woodshop classes are making tool totes, guitars (that will be able to be played), foot stools, and small tables.

     

     

     

    Message from Dean Alban

     

    We had a very successful Halloween celebration at Sage. The students followed the guidelines and had a great time displaying their costumes.

     

    Parents: Please remind your child of the following:

    1. Remind your child to bring their student IDs every morning. This helps during morning entry. If your child does not have one, please tell them to visit with Ms. Briana during their lunch period. She will make them one and provide them with lanyards.
    2. Remind your child to always walk on the right side in the hallways and staircases
    3. Remind your child to always be kind and respectful towards their classmates. This will go a very long way! 

     

    Beginning of MP2, there will be an assembly for all students to review guidelines and policies set forth at the beginning of the school year, and to look forward to events that will take place during the next couple of months. 

     

    Message from Guidance Counselor 

    Hello my 6th graders!

    I had the pleasure to meet some of you; keep up the good work. You all have been doing a great job adjusting to middle school.  Most of you  mentioned you like how you get to be more independent, and get to have different teachers compared to Elementary. This is your third month in middle school, you all should feel proud of yourselves.

    My office is a safe space where you can discuss your academic and social concerns. I am here to listen and offer solutions.

    NOTE: We’re not changing anymore talents; it will mix up the grades from each teacher. We try our best  to offer your first or second choice; you will be able to have different talents the following school year.

    All the best,

    Ms. Del Rio (Room 140B)

    Halloween Costume Guidelines 

     

    In an effort to enjoy and celebrate Halloween appropriately, respectfully and safely at Russell Sage JHS and in accordance with school rules and the Chancellor’s Regulations, we ask that students use the following guidelines when selecting costumes: 

                                                        

    •   Students may wear costumes to school on Monday, October 31 only.  
    •   No costume weapons or props of any kind that may be construed or used as a weapon (i.e. canes, umbrellas, swords, shields, bottles) should be brought to school.
    •   No provocative or inappropriate dress of any kind. 
    •   No costumes of a religious or racially insensitive dress. 
    •   No outfits that may present a safety, mobility or visual impairment issue 
    •   No foods or spray cans are allowed in the building or on school property before, during or after school.  If your child is spraying his/her hair another color it must be done at home and before entering the building. 
    •   No slippers, flip flops, oversized shoes or bare feet. 
    •   All students are expected to follow their schedule ready for regular classwork.
    •   All school rules will continue to be enforced (no bikes, skateboards, scooters etc.)   

     

    Thank you for taking the time to help our students understand these guidelines! 

    ***If any student does not follow any guidelines, their Parent/Guardian will be called and asked to bring appropriate clothing.***

    Updated School Health Policy

    Dear Families,

     

    We are happy to welcome all our students back to school this year. In our continued effort to keep our schools safe, schools will be offering four COVID-19 home tests per month to all students and staff. These tests can be used by

    school families for testing due to symptoms, in case of known exposure, or for participation in high-risk activity

    (such as travel and large gatherings). Please note, if there is a classroom exposure your child will also receive two

    tests immediately, along with a notification letter from the Situation Room providing further guidance, in addition

    to the four monthly tests.

     

    When to Get Tested

    Everyone should get tested:

    Immediately if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

    After having close contact (being within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes over a 24-hour period) with someone

    while that person was infected with COVID-19. Take two tests, at least 24 hours apart on day 4 and day 5 of

    exposure. All exposed individuals should monitor for fever and other COVID-19 symptoms for 10 days after an

    exposure. If symptoms begin, they should not attend school and should isolate and get tested for COVID-19

    again right away.

    Before and after travel or attending a gathering, especially if you or others are not vaccinated or up to date

    with your vaccine doses, or are at risk of severe COVID-19.

    People who are vaccinated should still get tested. The COVID-19 vaccines do not cause you to test positive.

    At-home Testing

    Most at-home tests allow you to test the sample yourself and get results in minutes.

     

    Be sure to carefully read and closely follow the manufacturer’s instructions. You can also watch videos in multiple

    languages on how to use your test kit at schools.nyc.gov/HomeRapidTestKits

     

    If you or anyone in your household tests positive, know that safe, effective COVID-19 treatments, including antiviral medications, are available for some individuals ages 12 and older. You can access these medications through

    your doctor or health care provider, or you can call 212-COVID19 to discuss treatment options with a medical

    professional. Treatment works best when it is started as soon as possible after symptoms begin, and can reduce

    symptoms and help you to avoid hospitalization. For more information, please see

    https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/doh/downloads/pdf/covid/treatments-available.pdf.

     

    If your child tests positive on one of the tests:

    • Please inform your school or program and isolate your child at home for five days. Your child may return to

    school on the sixth day if they have no symptoms or their symptoms are improving (including being feverfree for 24 hours without the use of medication). Children should wear masks on days 6–10, however, they

    may stop wearing masks during this period if they have received two negative rapid tests 48 hours apart.

    • Please refer to our COVID-19 Guidance Charts, available at schools.nyc.gov/2022Health, for additional

    steps to take if your child tests positive.

    As a reminder, vaccination is the best tool we have to fight COVID-19 and to keep our schools safe for all students. Everyone aged 6 months and up is eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19. If your child is eligible but not yet vaccinated against COVID-19, please make an appointment for vaccination at vaccinefinder.nyc.gov or call 311 to find a vaccine site near you. The vaccine is free to all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration or insurance status.

    A new COVID-19 vaccine booster has been authorized for everyone aged 12 and older who received their most

    recent vaccine dose at least two months ago. This booster is specifically designed to protect against the omicron subvariants that account for nearly all recent infections in New York City.

    You can get this updated booster at the same time as other vaccines, so we encourage you to schedule both your booster and your flu shot today! Learn more about getting the updated booster.

    Thank you for your continued partnership,

    Sincerely,

     

    Tracy Agerton

    Hello my 6th graders!

    I had the pleasure to meet some of you; keep up the good work. You all have been doing a great job adjusting to middle school.  Most of you  mentioned you like how you get to be more independent, and get to have different teachers compared to Elementary. This is your third month in middle school, you all should feel proud of yourselves.

    My office is a safe space where you can discuss your academic and social concerns. I am here to listen and offer solutions.

    NOTE: We’re not changing anymore talents; it will mix up the grades from each teacher. We try our best  to offer your first or second choice; you will be able to have different talents the following school year.

     

    All the best,

     

    Ms. Del Rio (Room 140B)

    Every spring at Sage we facilitate a career day for our 8th graders. Without fail, it's always an exciting, meaningful and educational day. As we begin to plan for this year's event, we are looking for presenters. We love to have individuals from our greater school community share their stories, so If you, or someone you know, would be interested in participating we would greatly appreciate it. This year's event will once again be presented entirely on zoom and will be taking place on Tuesday, March 15.
