Mid Quarter Update

MileStone Academy 9-12th Grade First Mid Quarter Update Regarding Attendance, Advisors, and Grades.

We have reached the halfway point for this quarter; it has been challenging but amazing to have the students in school. We realize it has not been an ideal year from starting at 9:30 AM, wearing masks all day and not having all our teachers in the building. All in all, we think we made the best decision for our students, and we appreciate your support.

Attendance

The following students have PERFECT ATTENDANCE since we started school:  

Guillermo Galarza

Niem Robinson

Keep up the great work! We are so proud of you!

Grades

Everyone should be able to check grades on Gradelink and Google Classroom. Gradelink is the place to check overall grades and Google gives detailed information about assignments. Based on the number of missed assignments I received yesterday our students looked at both Gradelink and Google. If you need information on how to get into the Gradelink system please send me an email and we will have your credentials emailed to you.

Teachers are committed to get grades into the system within a week of the activity so you should see up to date information.

Advisors

Each student has been assigned an advisor. The advisor will be the main point of contact for the student, teachers, and parents. Advisors will contact parents with issues or concerns, and we encourage you to reach out to them. We are hoping having an advisor will help our students in advocating for themselves.

You should receive an email from your child’s advisor later this week.

October is National LGBT History Month

October is National LGBT History Month


 

LGBT History Month was created in 1994 by a high school history teacher in Missouri called Rodney Wilson. The month, which garnered early support from organizations such as GLAAD and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), was initially chosen to include the by-then well-established National Coming Out Day on Oct. 11 and the anniversary of the first march on Washington by LGBT people in 1979 on Oct. 14. The month now also includes Spirit Day on Oct. 20, on which people around the country wear purple in support of LGBT youth; Ally Week, a week in which allies against LGBT bullying are celebrated; and the anniversary of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard’s murder on Oct. 12, 1998, which sparked the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.

Each year MileStone Academy focuses on the LGBTQIA+ community and their history. Our sustained dialogue transforms deep-rooted human conflicts, stigmas, and taboos.

MileStone applauds the efforts of organizations such as GLAAD, PFLAG, and the Human Rights Campaign. They each provide a platform, support, and resources accessible to LGBT+, locally and nationally.

You are invited to celebrate LGBT+ history with us by sharing your story. We will share your story with our students and supporters. Contact us to share your story and photographs or videos.

Teaching in the Age of COVID-19

Teaching at MileStone Academy  in the Age of COVID-19

By:  Susan Levy, MileStone Academy, October 13, 2020

Teaching is always a challenging venture. Whatever your vision may be regarding the process of instructing a group of high school students, usually you will find at least one who needs a different approach or a more flexible schedule.

In the Age of COVID-19, this is especially so, particularly when it comes to keeping oneself and one’s students healthy and focused, despite all the obstacles and distractions that come with the pandemic challenge.

Part of the responsibilities of teaching is preparing lessons that are interest based and success oriented. Unfortunately, planning has become much more difficult  because of ever changing schedules and health protocols that are regularly being updated. Nevertheless, educators are more than adept at adapting and adjusting and will continue to do so, no matter what they face.

Driving With Dyslexia

What Assessments Should We Use to Drive Instruction?

The following is a lecture by Mary Wennersten, M.Ed. at the 2017 International Dyslexia Association Conference. This highly engaging session helps educators understand what is necessary for a comprehensive assessment system within a multi-tiered system of support. These assessments will help to answer the following questions: “How much have students learned at this particular point in time? and “How can we use assessment information to help students learn to read?”

COVID-19 MILESTONE’S LATEST UPDATES

COVID-19 MILESTONE'S LATEST UPDATES

Written By:  Michele Hewitt-Webster from MileStone Academy

Posted:  September 11, 2020

Classes began September 8th, but are still accepting enrollment applications and scheduling tours. We will be using for both virtual and in-person classes.  We updated our program and the classes we are offering this year.

MileStone Academy has decided to in-person classes Monday – Thursday 9:30 AM -4:30 PM and Fridays we will be virtual from 8:45 AM -2:00 PM.  We are excited to launch our Friday virtual program which will feature: Current Events,  Reflective Journalism, Life Skills Job Readiness, and our weekly Seminar. The weekly seminar will feature Career Conversations with different professionals, Financial Literacy offered by BB&T, and Kahoots which will give us an opportunity to evaluate what students are learning in class and a way for them to compete.

We made our decisions based on the numbers of students we have enrolled. Our small classrooms allow us to offer in-person safer classes. 

MileStone and SDP have made changes in our transportation process. We believe these changes will enhance our ability to socially distance.

In addition, we know being in school is better for students, especially ours. We asked. We listened. We adjusted. Our parents really wanted their kids to be in school to help take the pressure off them and they know they are safe. They trust MileStone to continue supplying a preventative safer environment.

If necessary, we are prepared to go completely virtually. We have made major investments to our online systems.

COVID-19 MILESTONE'S LATEST UPDATES

Resolutions and Resources for COVID-19 in the Classroom

Written By:  Susan Levy from MileStone Academy

Posted:  August 13, 2020

At the conclusion of this most unusual school year, MSA Teachers were asked to assess the school’s response to the COVID-19 “virtual” instructional program. More specifically, teachers reflected on their own learning as they navigated the intricacies of online Instruction and on the positive instructional outcomes for their student’s vis a vis this mode of teaching.

Here is a summary of the comments the teachers shared regarding their professional growth, the delivery of instruction and the opportunities for high school students who often benefit from accessing information via atypical learning situations.

COVID-19: MILESTONE'S LATEST UPDATES

The following is a summary of the comments the teachers shared regarding their professional growth, the delivery of instruction and the opportunities for high school students who often benefit from accessing information via atypical learning situations:

1. Connecting with new modes of instruction and helping students adapt to virtual lessons provided challenges at the outset. It did not take long, however, for the challenges to be viewed as opportunities for providing meaningful, captivating and interest-based instruction to students.

2. In planning for the delivery of instruction, teachers learned about online tools to facilitate that effort. They also realized the opportunities for individualizing and differentiating learning events and for encouraging student involvement towards completing assignments in unique and very personal ways.

3. Helping students connect to the curriculum through the incorporation of interactive modes of learning reinforced what good teachers have always known – that there are many strategies for connecting students to curricular goals / objectives and for building a foundation that ultimately results in concept mastering.

4. In learning the technology, this teacher came to realize the importance of peer collaboration for support and curricular goal setting. Additionally, this person found it helpful for sharing effective techniques that engaged the students as they transitioned to home instruction activities.

5. Using a theme-based approach, the blending of subject matter (such as Math and Reading) engendered interest and commitment on the part of the learners who saw connections to information not previously realized. Parent involvement and fewer distractions may have also helped the students focus on more challenging assignments.

  • COVID-19 MILESTONE'S LATEST UPDATES_2

6. Increasing teachers’ comfort level with online instructional tools required dedication, focus and determination. Peer engagement was essential in learning how to use the system overall and how to use it specifically for improving student achievement. Student response to these efforts was very encouraging as indicated by the assignments they completed and submitted.

7. Offering virtual learning provided the opportunity for continuing instruction; however, the most effective learning environment should include a combination of classroom instruction with online learning activities. In this way, students will surely receive the best of both worlds. Until that can happen, teachers should continue their collaborating efforts to increase student involvement and enhanced skill acquisition.

Ultimately, teachers and students learned an important lesson from this experience – there are no limits to our creativity and our ability to adapt and move forward if we set our sights on doing so.

School in a COVID-19 World

School in a COVID-19 World

School in a COVID-19 World, Are You Ready?

Written By: Susan Levy from MileStone Academy on August 15, 2020

Until 2020, most students looked upon the month of August as a time to recalibrate their summertime habits of late nights and carefree days. They knew and understood that they would soon be facing the reality of September and all that that refers to – namely, going to school, completing assignments, meeting responsibilities and seeing people who have temporarily been missing from their lives.

This year WILL be different. Students may, in fact, be returning to school although the instructional setting they have been used to will noticeably be different. So will the necessary adjustments they will personally have to make to keep themselves safe and healthy. They will be required to social distance when they sit in their seats, converse through a mask and demonstrate affection for others through words, not deeds.

It will take all their creative energies and proper coaching from dedicated teachers to figure out how to make the best of a situation none of us could hardly have imagined only eight months ago. On the other hand, there are opportunities for students who grasp the seriousness of the pandemic to learn how to be responsible citizens and thoughtful partners in managing this crisis.

As students try to meet these new challenges, there may be setbacks as well as success stories. But we, as adults, have an obligation to encourage them to use their problem solving skills to work together in pursuit of ideas that will help us all understand how the world has changed.

Need help?

The MileStone Academy Team just want to remind you that we are still here to provide our community with emotional support and resources. In addition, we will provide with important updates regarding the 2020 school year.

We would love to hear from you! Call us at (215) 663-1160 or send us an email.

10 Activities For High School Students During Summer Break

10 Activities For High School Students
During Summer Break

20 Activities For High School Students During Summer Break MileStone

Are you a high school student or the parent of one and are wondering how high school students should spend their summers? Summer is a great time to relax and recharge, but it’s also an excellent chance for students to get work experience, do an activity they enjoy, and boost their chances of learning a trade or getting into their preferred college.

This article will help identify several summer activities for high school students and how, together, choose the best option.

How to decide which summer activities are best for your teen

Like most families, you may have a lot of options for how you can spend your summer. On the contrary, due to  COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing makes it extremely difficult to pursue many leisure or educational activities.

How can you decide what you should do? Here are some questions to review with your teen to help narrow down what activities are best for them:

  • What do you enjoy doing… the most?
  • How busy do you want to be? 
  • What are you your future long-time and short-time goals?
  • Will you have a method of transportation?
  • How much money is available for the summer activities budget?

 

10 summer activities for high school students

1. Start a new hobby or perfect one you already started. Hobbies include sports, clubs, or other activities that you do either through school, with a local group, or on your own. Some examples include sports teams, clubs, or a hobby you do in your free time, such as painting, working on computers, or creating a small business.

2.  Start a club or join one. This means either establishing your own chapter of an organization that already exists at other high schools, or creating a club that is something completely different from any other club at your high school.

3. Try a local or national summer camps! Summer camps aren’t just for making s’mores and going on nature hikes anymore. More and more summer camps for high school students are being created that have unique focuses such as cultural immersion, performing arts, wilderness skills, and more.

4. Volunteer at a nonprofit or purpose driven organization. There are many places where you can volunteer including schools, animal shelters, retirement homes, museums, and more.

5. Get involved with research. Experience in a lab as a high school student is really impressive to colleges. Cold call professors or ask your parents to talk to anyone they know who is connected with a university to see if you can work in their lab or be a part of a safe experiment. Always speak to your primary doctor before participating in experimental activities. 

6. Check Something Off Your Bucket List. Whether it is training for a 5K, marathon, sky diving, or tackling some books you have always meant to read.  

7.  Become a mentor or tutor to peers or younger students at your school or within your community.

8.  Take an online course. Since we are not able to take classes in person, there are plenty of opportunities to learn online. Many online course databases, such as Lynda.com and Skillshare, offer online subscriptions that allow you to access thousands of courses with video tutorials

9. Get a Side Hustle! Find a side job and earn some cash to put aside for college. Having a job can be an impressive extracurricular activity!

10. Relax. While it is important to be productive and not wasting the summer doesn’t mean you can’t take some time to get relaxation and refreshed and for another school year. .

Our school year ended on June 11th; it was bittersweet because we could not have our Graduation / End of the Year Celebration. Our annual celebration is usually a day we show off all the hard work our staff and students do through the year – artwork, science projects, and student writings.

COVID-19 made it impossible for us to have the big celebration, but we needed to find a way to celebrate this unusual year. We kicked around a few ideas, but we agreed we needed to see our kids, so we decided on a Drive Thru Diploma pickup.

One at a time, our graduates drove through the car drive up lane to the cheers of our staff and Board Members, pomp and circumstance playing, and Ms. Hall announcing their name. The graduates dressed in Caps, Gowns and face masks got out of the car and were presented with their diploma while I cried telling them how proud I am of them. Yes, I hugged them and took pictures standing closer than 6ft, but it was worth the risk to let them know I believe in them and will be here in the future if they need me.

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month

Happy Pride Month

Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as a social group. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements. Pride has lent its name to LGBT-themed organizations, institutes, foundations, book titles, periodicals, a cable TV station, and the Pride Library.

Ranging from solemn to carnivalesque, pride events are typically held during LGBT Pride Month or some other period that commemorates a turning point in a country’s LGBT history, for example Moscow Pride in May for the anniversary of Russia’s 1993 decriminalization of homosexuality. Some pride events include LGBT pride parades and marches, rallies, commemorations, community days, dance parties, and festivals.

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month

As of 2017, plans were advancing by the State of New York to host in 2019 the largest international celebration of LGBT pride in history, Stonewall 50 – WorldPride NYC 2019 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. In New York City, the Stonewall 50 – WorldPride NYC 2019 events produced by Heritage of Pride were enhanced through a partnership made with the I LOVE NY program’s LGBT division and included a welcome center during the weeks surrounding the Stonewall 50 – WorldPride NYC 2019 events that were be open to all. Additional commemorative arts, cultural, and educational programming to mark the 50th anniversary of the rebellion at the Stonewall Inn took place throughout the city and the world.

Beyonce Happy Pride Month

Common symbols of pride are the rainbow or pride flag, the lowercase Greek letter lambda (λ), the pink triangle and the black triangle, these latter two reclaimed from use as badges of shame in Nazi concentration camps. 



MileStone Academy’s mission is to educate our students with complex learning challenges that by fostering a nurturing and positive environment that utilizes research-based practices. We empower students to realize their strengths and capabilities, by teaching self-advocacy skills and strategies for overcoming frustrations that will serve them well in their future endeavors.
