Keeping Informed: Recent Arkadelphia Educational News
- Acts of Kindness - Arkadelphia High School created a “Kindness ties us together” event after being influenced by young Central Primary School students, who wore ties in support of kindness during the Great Kindness Challenge week. A counselor at the primary school explained that this initiative was different than others because it promoted positive acts of kindness instead of focusing on what not to do (i.e. bully others). The week included a variety of activities, such as dressing up in crazy outfits and wearing strange hairdos during “crazy for kindness day.” During the week, the students tried to perform 50 acts of kindness, which included paying compliments to others and reading to younger children.
- Students Present to School Board - Central Primary students were on hand as Arkansas’s governor declared January as School Board Member Appreciation Month. Students presented projects to the school board, and the third-grade president of the Early Act Citizenship Council gave a rundown of the events the council sponsored throughout the year. Students presented on such topics as Theodore Roosevelt and the Golden Gate Bridge and discussed how they utilized technology by conducting research on iPads.
- Traffic “CONE-ing” - For the 17th consecutive year, Arkadelphia High School students in the gifted and talented program presented grant funding to nonprofit organizations in the area through the CONE foundation. Not only did the students dole out the checks, they reviewed all the applications and decided how to divide the available funds based on the needs of the organizations. The director of CONE emphasized the valuable life lessons students learn about finances and their community involvement.

Chalk Talk: English Language Learners: Things to Consider
Educating English Language Learners can be a challenge for classroom teachers, who may only know a few words, if any, of their ELLs’ native language. One important factor is to make sure that they make everything as clear as possible and never assume that ELLs know what they are saying. For example, telling students from another country that there is going to be a “bathroom” break may confuse them, as they associate this with a room in which they take a bath in. Another noteworthy item is that people often have the misconception that ELLs are automatically special education students. This is only the case if this is reflected in their academics in their native language. Oftentimes, these students are extremely knowledgeable about the content, and the only reason they struggle with it is because of the language barrier. Finally, ELLs are often—but not always—required to take state assessments in English. How can we evaluate these students on what they know based on a test in a language that is secondary to them? It is essential to investigate what they know and can do in their native language.
