Weeks of March 29-April 15

Physical Education:  Moving does a body good!

Take time each day to get some exercise.  Take a walk.  Run around the yard.  Ride your bike.  Dance or do your favorite exercise during TV commercials.  Have a family balance contest.  Be creative.  The possibilities are endless!  Just be sure to get up and move!!!  Be careful and stay safe!!

The students in Grades K-6 are participating in the Rising New York Road Runners program again this year.  This is a free program sponsored by the New York City Marathon.  The students kept track of their laps during class and receive incentive rewards at specific milestones.  The students have logged 1693.48 miles as of March 10th!!   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!! 

The Pre-K classes can look for their letter of the week in books.  The students in Grades Kdg. through 6  can find the copyright date, title, author and illustrator for the books they read.  Grades 2 through 6 can also look for the publisher and place of publication.  After reading, share about the book(s) you read with someone.  Talk about the characters, the setting and what you liked and/or disliked about the book.   Just be sure to read, read, read and read some more!!

Health:  Be a “smile spreader”!!! 

What a great time to use some of those tools that we have talked about this year!!  Think about the things that make you happy and things you enjoy doing.  Try some breathing techniques.  Make healthy choices!!  Take care of yourself!  Be sure to wash your hands and cover your coughs and sneezes!
