Welcome to Razdolna School!


Немного истории о школе Раздольна

Late December back in ‘83, in the KPBSD archived Board Policy (BP), Vasily Basargin represented Razdolna’s first petition of a formal educational program. Children had been working thru correspondence studies (schooling via postal mail), but the system had limits, and families desired something better. Dr. Pomeroy – then KPBSD Superintendent – visited the Village of Razdolna shortly thereafter to discuss options, and events quickly unfolded. By Feb. 29th, 1984, Razdolna Elementary had its first day of school. Serving only Grades K-8… (continued)

School Handbook – Что Нового?

    Teachers and staff are excited to be working with your child this year! Our 1st week of school has been quite successful, and has involved teachers introducing to students classroom routines, expectations, and a review of the new Student-Parent Handbook.  Please click the image to the right if you want to look at it! Since the concept of a school Student-Parent Handbook is new for most students, it is quite understandable how children may feel we have “new” rules.  However, we’ve only made a few changes to the school rules (such as student cell phones), and the remaining rules from last year have simply been written out for increased visibility & parental awareness. I’ve highlighted below the “What’s New” rules for Razdolna School this year:

  • Cell Phones – during school hours, all MS/HS students must place their cell phones in their classroom teacher’s designated location (usually a pocket holder on the wall). Students will not use cell phones during school hours, other than their Snack Break or when allowed by their teacher for educational purposes. This does include tablets.
  • Late Slips – if a student arrives more than 15min. to class, that student must retrieve a Late Slip from the secretary. The Late Slip will be given to that student’s classroom teacher, and can be used to keep parents aware that their child actually arrived at school. This is a safety measure, as we had a number of students skipping school last year without the parent’s knowledge. If you are interested in knowing whether your child arrived to school on-time, the Secretary has all arrival times for late students.
  • RoboCalls – this is a continuation of what we started last Spring for unexcused absent students. In order to give your child the best education possible, and to increase parent awareness that their child is in school, RoboCalls are sent out for any unexcused absence. Parents may prevent RoboCall by calling the school in-advance to excuse their child for any of the reasons listed in the handbook (religious reasons, medical, etc.).
  • ATV Rules – Last year, we had students talk back disrespectfully to staff whenever a staff member called out that student for driving unsafely. If a student shows disrespect to a staff member that had called him/her out for driving unsafely, that student’s ATV keys will immediately be confiscated. Your child’s safety is our top priority!
  • Student Responsibility” section (from McNeil’s handbook)
  • Honor Roll” Recognition

The Razdolna Student-Parent Handbook is specific to needs at our school, and is designed to support the KPBSD Parent-Student Handbook. Parents are welcome to provide feedback, or suggest changes, at any time of the school year. An opportunity to discuss the Student-Parent Handbook will be given at our first Site Council Meeting on Tuesday, September 24th. Please join us!!

Thank you,

Снова В Школу!

schoolhouse-clipart-school-for-clip-art-di6e5dri9-297x300    Welcome back to another school year! This summer has been full of state fires, great fishing (for some areas), warm weather, and an occasional rain. Students should be pleased to hear that I know a bit more Russian than last year (может быть), but I know that hasn’t always been the case. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again. 

    I do intend that our school will educate children to become the most successful and impactful community members as possible for the Village of Razdolna. I also believe that such is a cooperative effort between the village and school. Parent engagement is a vital factor towards a child’s success, and there will be many opportunities for families to engage in their child’s education this year. 

    We do have a few changes this year, much which will be outlined in a new Student-Parent Handbook to be released in the next few weeks. One notable change based on much feedback…we will be limiting student cell phones much more this year! Cell phones have distracted students from their learning, and I don’t intend for this to happen again. Finally, we do have several new summer teacher hires. Teresa Wishart from Texas will be joining us as our new K/1 teacher, replacing Michelle Fournier. In addition, Michael Sturm will replace Laura Murphy as the new ELA/SS teacher. Never hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. THANK YOU!!
