Math Club

Mrs. Enciso's after school math club started with Glow in the Dark Geometry! Students used glow sticks to build familiar shapes alone, then had to work together as a team to create a repeating pattern of squares and a repeating pattern of triangles with all of their glowsticks combined! Math + Synergy (Habit #6) = Making Math Fun!!

Proper Hand Washing

Our district nurse, Rita MacDonald, stopped by Amanda Moore to present proper hand washing techniques to all of our students. With the flu season upon us, this information is critical and being provided at a much needed time. Please take a moment to discuss proper hand washing with your child(ren).

GREEN SCHOOL ENVIRONMENTAL TIP OF THE MONTH

Keep Warm This Winter

Adding a sweater and keeping your thermostat set a couple degrees cooler are smart ways to save some energy. But there are many ways to save energy that will conserve resources and save you money.

• Install a programmable thermostat. Being able to turn down the heat for large chunks of time, such as at night or while at work, can make a difference in your overall energy consumption. Consider turning off the heat to rooms that are not heavily used -- you'd be surprised how much even these small steps can help to reduce utility bills. Learn how to button up your home here.

• Perform regular maintenance. If you have a forced air furnace, make sure to clean or change the furnace filter about once a month. Most furnaces will need to be professionally cleaned and tuned once a year.

• Plug leaks and holes. In addition to insulating your attic and walls, another easy energy saving step is to winterize windows and doors by caulking and weather stripping. Feel for cool air around windows, electrical receptacles and pipe and wire entry points and learn how to block drafts.
