Balanced Calendar – What is it?

East Noble School Corporation is considering a balanced calendar for the 2014-2015 school year.  A balanced calendar is not year round school!  Instead, it is a calendar that has balanced breaks throughout the school year and eliminates most of the “one day” breaks.  IF ENSC were to use a balanced calendar, it would look something like this:

  • Start Date would be around August 7 or 8.
  • A one or two week break would fall in early November or the week before and the week of Thanksgiving.
  • A two week break for winter break.
  • A two week break for spring break.  These weeks would fall the last week of March and the first full week of April.
  • The last day of the year would be some time during the week of June 1.
  • Snow days would be made up at the end of the year; however, we could add a few make up days in May.

Please let me know your thoughts.  Check the Parent Updates tab for links to recent Parent Weekly Notes.  You will find additional information in those notes.

ENSC SURVEY

Sometime around October 3 families should have received an email with a survey.  ENSC wants your input on our progress and direction.  The survey is short with just ten questions.  Please respond to the survey. If you would like a paper version to complete, stop by the central office at 126 West Rush Street, Kendallville.   Your input is important!

Technology and East Noble

This week I have had the opportunity to reflect on our 1:1 technology plan and successes. I continue to be impressed with the many amazing ways teachers are using technology in the classroom to create rigorous and relevant lessons.  It is even more amazing how students use technology to discover, create, and drive their own learning.   A great way to learn more about the use of technology at East Noble School Corporation is to check out the websites of your child’s teachers. 

Thank you all for the support you give to your child.  Feel free to contact the school or central office with any questions you have.
