Physical Education:    Get ready for action!!   Things will be rolling along in Pre-K classes this week as the students will be using the gym scooters.  The students in grades Kindergarten through 6 will try a couple of activities that will help to develop their hand-eye coordination.    They will also begin a mini-unit using the gym scooters.  (Remember to wear your P.E. uniform and sneakers on your P.E.day.)

The students in grades K-6 are participating again this year in the Rising New York Road Runners program.  This is a free program sponsored by the New York City Marathon.  The students keep track of their laps during class and receive incentive rewards at specific milestones.  In December they received their T-shirts for getting off to a great start! Last month several students received their incentive awards for participating in 25 sessions!  Several students have received their marathon medal and many more are very close to achieving that goal!  Congratulations!  The students have logged a total of 1,721 miles as of February 15th!!  They are to be commended for their effort.  The goal of the program is to encourage students to be active.  We have used the program for several years and the students work very hard to achieve their miles.

Library:  Ready!  Set!!  Read!!  It’s a great way to grow your brain!!  Students in Pre-K will work on their letter of the week, N, and their theme of Spring.  The Kindergarten and First Grade students will be examining the words fiction, non-fiction and diary.  They will listen to the story Diary of a Worm to help them to see what a diary is.  The students in Grades 2-6 will continue exploring atlases and maps to discover the type of information these resources contain and how that information can be used.

The students in Grades K -6 check out a book every library class.  Library books are due back on your student’s next library day.

Health:   Healthy choices make a difference! The students in Grades 3-6  have explored the importance of safety as well as different types of safety.  This week they will continue learning about nosebleeds.  They will look at what a nosebleed is, what can cause a nosebleed, what to do if one gets a nosebleed and safety steps a person can take to avoid suffering one.  Next up is dehydration.  The goal is to prepare the students with basic information that will be valuable to them now and in the future.
