2009 oct delta declarativeThe Delta ChronicleKIPP remembers Quanterea SmithVolume 1, Issue 1
October 2009(Left to right) Alexandria Vann, Quanterea Smith and DeAnna Allen visited Chicago on
their 9th Many of her friends knew Smith for her friendly SHUVRQDOLWKIPP welcomes baby KIPPstersDomonique Murry
Last year KIPP Delta Public Schools decided to open an elemen-tary school: KIPP Delta Elementary Literacy Academy.It has done very well and, at last count, had 102 stu-dents enrolled.This is a good start for a school that has very high standards and requires long hours.
Some Kipp-sters wondered whether elementary students would be able to handle all of the hard work that is required.
Amanda Johnson, the new school leader at KIPP Delta ELA, says that she wanted to give younger students rate as the middle school Kippsters have been able to.
One of the new elementary stu-dents, Jakerious Smith, said he likes KIPP and in his most polite kid voice, describes one of his favorite parts of Jenessa Cozads kindergarten class: stations.
In particular, he said: Yes maam.
[I like it.] Sometimes you have a folder in your hand and [then you get to be] the captain.We have to glue, write and trace.
The hope is that this will cause the young Kippsters to get further ahead than their older counterparts who -garten.
Since the students are starting off young they should raise their test scores even higher than the class of 2010 has been able to achieve, once they reach middle school.
They should be able to learn faster and easier since they will have started at KIPP from the beginning, unlike the current Kippsters in middle and high school who started at other elemen-tary schools but came to KIPP and often learned that they were behind.
One new teacher at KIPP Delta ELA, the school.
He was on his way to interview for a job at the middle school.He says he only wants the best for the students he is teaching.
He said he tries to make learningfun for them, using examples such as Dora the Explorer and Spiderman.
Just like Johnson, Bennett feels that the students will have a huge advan-tage and will score higher than the students before them in the middle school, if they continue to excel in the KIPP Literacy program.
The younger students are even learning Spanish in Bennetts class.
Mr.Bennett teaches his class entirely in Spanish, but sometimes has to wait for the English class to catch up.
For instance, they might learn the word word Uno in Spanish.
Smith said he enjoys learning words in Spanish.
He recited words he has learned such as rojo which means red.The younger students also maintain the same long sched-ule as their middle school and high school counterparts do, but they are academically and they still have re-cess.
After all, they still have twelve more years to go
Not many kids that are in the middle school and high school are bonding with the new KIPP that a more advanced and mature grade such as the 7th or 8th grad-ers should take initiative to get more close to them.
Two students at recess said they enjoy spending most of their time at school.They really enjoy recess and learning their alphabets.
The ELA students have accom-plished a lot so far.
Part of this is because the older students are said to be positive role models that obvi-ously the younger kids look up to.
Many of the high schoolers who have been volunteering there, are trying to keep a positive mindset around them.The culture of KIPP is being really infused into the younger minds and they are being receptive said Physi-cal Education Teacher Tomisha Gant.They also like to read and talk about KIPP schools.
Two of the previous KIPP middle school teachers have transitioned to working at the
elementary school: Amanda Johnson and Emily Cook.
Some people think that teaching younger kids is easier than teaching older kids.
The teachers said this is not true because you have to be re-petitive and have consistency.Thats WKHPDMRUREVWDFOHDQGGLIFOW%Wthe best part of it all they say, is when you see the students master an objec-tive.That is the highlight of the day.
Clearly, adding on to the KIPP school system in the Delta is an ex-cellent idea and it will brighten KIPP Deltas future.
Over the summer, just days before students would return to KIPP, news of Quanterea Smith, known by friends as Pooh Pooh, reached us through phone, email, text-messages, and the ever present Facebook.
Those who knew her well grieved over people confessed to thinking that the announcements were pranks: crude jokes but nothing real.However, our worst fears were saw the farewells and R.I.P s to our dear friend on Facebook and said to themselves in a quiet voice, You werent joking.
During the past few weeks we have seen her impact on the entire KIPP community: whether its the daily quotes in students Facebook statuses paying tribute to her, or a lone tear rolling down their faces during a quiet moment.
One example of this is the status of eleventh grader Loretta Wilburn, who said she was, Just sitting here thinking about my Pooh~Pooh.All the classes we sat together in and laughed and smiled and joked...all the projects we had to work on together...all the times she asked me for my food at lunch...I miss her smile and her laugh.I miss her so much...I am never going to forget her...my friend but more like my sister.
Rest In Love Pooh~Pooh.
Love ya! We have all felt her hand touch us.
The feeling and words that our Kippsters have for Quanterea usually fall under two or three categories.The most common is a pause as a far away look is cast over their eyes and they softly say something tender and loving towards their late
