January 16: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Martin Luther King, Jr.

We remember many historical events throughout the year with national holidays.  The third Monday in January honors Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is the day that we remember him for his civil rights leadership and a time to learn about the important traits of equality, compassion and understanding.

Kaboose, an online Disney website, provides family friendly ways to talk about and discuss MLK’s work.

Week 19: January 16-20, 2017

 

Welcome to crazy, unpredictable January weather.  In addition to the temperatures ranging from below zero to mid 40’s, we have many types of viruses in the building.

Some winter tips:

  1. Send your child with outdoor clothing everyday.  It is our goal to get the students outside when it is above zero and not raining.  Fresh air and movement is essential!
  2. Write your last name on the tag of snow pants and jackets…and sweatshirts.  Your last name will help us to get lost items back to your child.
  3. If your child is sick (vomit, fever, diarrhea), keep your child home for 24 hours after the symptoms stop.  This helps prevent these viruses from spreading.  We also work hard on our end to keep surfaces as clean as possible.

Thank you so much for your support with this weather and these viruses.

Finally,  the minutes from our December Parent Club Meeting can be found here :  PTC Minutes

Have a wonderful week!

Mrs. Reagan

Word of the Week: ORGANIZE

This is our 16th word of the school year…and our first word of 2017.

This is a word I live by — organize.  Before I accomplish anything at my desk, I first have to bring order to my work area by organizing the papers and clutter that are in my work space and line of vision.  I do the same when preparing a meal.  If the kitchen is in disarray, I bring order to the counter before I get out the ingredients to prepare the meal.  This is also a skill set we are trying to teach  our students — learning happens best when with an organized work space.  Our school wide definition is below.  Try to check out the ORGANIZE song.  It’s played in all classrooms to help students internalize the meaning of the word.

  • Definition: to arrange, classify, order or consolidate
  • Link to the song:   organize
