Students please remember to fully charge your chromebook every night--- it needs to be fully charged when you bring it to school. This is especially important when we have State Testing Days.


Test Taking Tips from Mrs. Deglow’s Study Skills Class:

Nia:  My poster is when you wake up from that great sleep and get a nutritious breakfast.  This is an important test taking tip because with the breakfast you eat, it will help you focus during the test.   
Vada:  When taking a test, make sure you get a nice and relaxing good night’s sleep.  The recommended amount of sleep for an average teenager is 9 hours.  
Sam:  When you are trying to figure out a true or false question, you should look for the qualifying words that you would think would be true.  You have to look at all, none, always, and never...these are words that mean it is happening 100% of the time.  But, you should look for most or less words like that.

From Miss Mittelkamp:
How many of you went to STEAM Night last year? If you did not go, you missed out! There were rocket launches, drones, worms, and even explosions! Don’t miss out this year. Kettering’s STEAM Night will be held this Thursday night, starting at 6:00 at Trent Arena. Make sure to ask your parents if you can attend. And don’t forget to bring a clean blank T-shirt to have your very own customized STEAM Night shirt made before your eyes! Hope to see your there!

Test Taking Tips from Mrs. Deglow’s Study Skills Class:
Will:  My test taking says if you are stuck, skip it, go on, and come back to it.  This means if you ever get stuck on a problem on a test, you should mark it, go on, and later come back to it.  
Noah & Brooke:  If you are taking a true or false test, look for qualifier words.  You need to look for traps, so you must read them carefully.  Qualifiers change a statement by expressing amount, degree, quality, or intensity.  Words that say all or nothing are usually false.  If you see no, never, none, every, always, all, only, entirely, and invariably, the statement is probably false.  Not many things in our world are 100% in one way or another.  If a statement has a list of items, be careful.  One item could make it false.  Always circle negative words or prefixes in true-false questions.  These can change the meaning of true-false statements.

Test Taking Tips from Mrs. Deglow’s Study Skills Class:
Connor:  My test taking tip is you need to relax to do your best on the test.  You need to tell yourself things like...relax and do your best on the test; and you won’t do well if you don’t feel relaxed.
Daniel:  The test taking skill my poster represents is you need to feel your best to do your best on the test.  For me personally, that is making sure I wake up early so I feel refreshed like the guy on my poster.  The guy on my poster represents being organized because he woke up early.  
Serena:  Don’t stress, take your time on the test!  You have lots of time on the test, so use it!  There is no trophy for the first person to turn it in...so TAKE YOUR TIME!!!
Kara:  If you don’t know the answer on the test, skip it and move on!  Answering another question may help you with the one you were stuck on.

The first commercial text message was sent in December of 1992.  Today the number of text messages sent and received every day is more than the total population of the planet even though almost half of the world’s population has never made a phone call.

Have this month’s career announcements interested you in a career in computer science?  This is a highly dynamic field, and it requires workers who can keep learning as technology evolves.  Workers best suited for jobs in this field not only like computers but are also good communicators and continuous learners.

Kindness starts with you….Feb. 11-17, 2018 is National Random Acts of Kindness week.  Here at Kettering Middle School we have the expectation of students and adults showing kindness to each other every day.  But during this week we want to remind and encourage each of you to reach out and show a little extra kindness to someone who could use it…..

Here is a question to start the week off.  Who is that one person who inspires you to be a better human being?  What is it that person does that pushes you to strive for that?  

We will read quotes daily this week so that Advisories can think about and discuss:

Can you guess what the most expensive construction undertaking of all time is?  If you guessed the US highway system, then you win.  Connecting more than 47,000 miles and taking over 35 years to complete, the estimated cost is $459 billion.

Education is often the pathway to earn more money in your career, and construction is no different.  Instead of college, the best path in this industry is through gaining an apprenticeship.  Apprentices receive competitive pay and benefits to learn while they work at a job site.  Nationwide, there are currently over 375,000 apprentices.

Did you know the world’s first air cargo flight was flown by the Wright Brothers in 1910, transporting 102 bolts of silk from Dayton to Columbus?

Another vital component of getting goods into our stores and homes is the warehousing and distribution of the items.  Beginning in medieval times when village grain was stored in case of famine, warehousing allows companies to store goods until they are purchased, mix goods from different suppliers, or sell goods directly to consumers (like the Amazon model).  The average worker in a distribution center earns $43,000, with managers earning $93,000.

I have a couple of weather related announcements for you.  First, let’s remember with cold winter weather arriving it is highly important for you to dress appropriately.  

Secondly, it’s also important that you use the sidewalks around campus.  Our custodians will do a great job clearing the sidewalks both before and during school should we have snowfall.  Be sure to knock as much snow as you can off your shoes on the carpet when entering the buildings.  Hallways can become slick and a little dangerous if too much snow is tracked into the buildings. 

Lastly, remember to leave the snow on the ground.  Teachers and staff should not see any students picking up or throwing snow at other students.  Students who do will be referred to their unit principal for disciplinary consequences.

From Mr. Snyder:
This month’s career theme will focus on careers in the transportation & logistics fields.  Logistics is defined as “the cost-effective process of planning, implementing and controlling the efficient movement and storage of goods from the point of origin to the end-user” and transport is defined as “the movement of products and people from one point to another via air, sea, road and rail”.  Put the two definitions together and you get an integral part of business operations and the supply chain of goods across the nation and world.

The 7 Silver Girls Basketball team opened their season last night against Lebanon White. The girls did a great job in the first half...keeping the score very close. But, Lebanon came out strong in the third quarter building up their lead. The Birds picked up their play in the fourth quarter, but couldn't catch up to the Warriors. Overall, Coach Bohaboy is happy with the way the girls played, and is looking forward to seeing the girls improve as the season goes on.
The 7 Silver Girls play again on Thursday against Beavercreek at Van Buren. Come out and support your Birds!

Come out and support the Firebirds during this basketball season. Go Birds!

From Coach Williams:
The 8th grade lady Firebirds hosted Lebanon Maroon last night at KMS. The girls played a great first haft but couldn't overcome the post play of Lebanon. The lady birds lost to a really good Lebanon team.

From Mr. Snyder:
Did you know that during the Dark Ages the most common form of medical care was putting leeches on the patient to suck the “bad blood” out of their bodies?

Do you work well under pressure and crave excitement?  Then you should consider a career as a paramedic.  Paramedics must earn the EMT-basic certification before taking an additional year of courses to become a paramedic.  Most paramedics work with fire departments, but they can also be housed in the military, research labs, police departments, and private companies.

From Mr. Snyder:

Did you know there are over 700,000 doctors and 4,000,000 million nurses in the United States?

One of the advantages of a career in healthcare is job security.  With the baby boomer generation aging and the government giving health care access to more families, the number of skilled healthcare workers needed is growing much quicker than the average for all US jobs.  Jobs in healthcare will always be needed and can never be outsourced.

From Mr. Snyder:
Tomorrow is Veteran's Day - a holiday celebrating those people who have fought hard to protect this country and make sure that all of us have freedom.

Veteran's Day began after World War I to recognize those who served our country. In 1921, an unknown World War I American soldier was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. The Tomb of this Unknown Soldier, on a hillside overlooking Washington DC, became the focal point of respect and honor for America's veterans. In our country, memorial gestures to honor Veterans take place on November 11, giving recognition to the celebrated ending of World War I fighting at 11 a.m., November 11, 1918 (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month). Realizing that peace is preserved by ALL veterans, Congress requested to make this a day to honor those who have served America in ALL wars. In 1954 President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veteran’s Day.

KMS would like to recognize and honor our KMS veterans: Mr. Mark Clayton, Mr. Jeff Duncan, Mr. Jeff Hysinger, Mrs. Theresa Thompson, Mr. Scott Helms, Mrs. Krista Berning, and Mr. Jim Davis. Thank you sincerely for your service to our great country!
___________________________________________________________

The earliest recorded formal hospital with physicians that treated the ill comes from the 5th century BC in Sri Lanka near India.

The amount of training required for healthcare jobs varies widely in the field:
Doctors & surgeons typically need 8 years of college and medical school
Registered nurses require a 4-year degree
Medical assistants require 2-year degrees
Nurse aides need a high school diploma and a training class

Did you know the red & white Coca-Cola label is actually a powerful  marketing tool for the company? - it is recognized by 94% of the people in the world.

Are you creative?  Do you have good people skills?  Then a job in marketing or business may be a great career for you.  An account manager needs to be able to get along with clients; a market researcher needs to anticipate what target audiences might want; a public relations pro needs to know how audiences will respond to news. To be a truly effective marketer, you need to be able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and understand how they think and feel.

From Coach Hall:
The 7th grade football team went 2 and 0 last week against Beavercreek.  Dominating performances on both sides of the ball led to outscoring the Beavers 66 to just 6 in the two games.  The offense ran up and down the field breaking big plays and chewing up clock while the defense kept Beavercreek on their heels.  Come out and support our Birds as they take on the Elks this week.  Stay hungry.

From Mrs. Shadoan:
It's here... #SpiritWeek!!

Did you dress like someone else today for Twin Day? What about tomorrow- are you ready for Superhero Day?

It's spirit week and tomorrow's your chance to be someone's superhero... remember- no costumes please!!

Teachers, if you have twinning students in your advisory today please check your email to submit their names to Kristin Shadoan. It would also be great to snap some photos if you have a chance!!

From Mr. Snyder:
Keep up the good attendance!  Our lead over Van Buren has become smaller, but we still have the lead!

Did you know that the Ferris wheel is considered one of the greatest engineering wonders of the world?  Becoming an engineer will require a college bachelor’s degree, which you can complete at a 4-year college or by studying 2 years at Sinclair and 2 years at a 4-year college.  This could be well worth it with an average starting salary around $60,000.

Announcements for Thursday, August 17, 2017

From Mrs. Chilson:
Attention Students:

Don't waste time thinking about joining Muse Machine this year. Just do it!! Why? Because we have some of the best shows we've had in a long time both in-school performances and out-of school performances.

Our biggest out-of-school performance is In The Heights, a hip-hop musical written by none other than Lin Manuel Miranda, the genius behind the current hit, Hamilton!

Tickets for In the Heights and another out-of school show must be purchased by the end of this month! That's right. Exactly two weeks from today, you would need to have joined Muse Machine AND purchased tickets to one or both of these shows.

Not interested in these? There are plenty of others. We have tickets for A Christmas Story, Swan Lake, and even Phantom of the Opera.

Don't wait! Join Muse Machine now. It's only $25.00 and you get to attend free shows during school!! Plus, you are able to purchase tickets to these great out-of school performances.

Everything you need is on the two forms you received yesterday. Information about all the shows is on the white form and the membership form is purple. The purple membership form gets returned when you join!

You can also find all of this information on the Student Links page. Look for the Muse Machine Quick Links. If you lost your forms, more are in the unit offices or you can print them from Quick Links.

Don't waste time! Join Muse Machine today!
