Cold Weather Gear

Please make sure to send cold-weather gear with your student to school everyday. We go outside for recess when the temperature is above 0 degrees, even when there is snow and slush on the ground.


This year, it is even more important to make sure that students bring boots, hats, snow pants, and gloves because each cohort has an assigned area on the playground during recess and they must stay in that area.


Boots and snow pants help keep shoes and pants from getting wet, cold and muddy.

"Can" You Donate?

Please see the information below from our Student Lighthouse Team. They have organized a canned food drive for Civic Concern.


The food drive will run from February 1st through February 12th.


Shout out to Katelyn W. and Sophia J. for designing the posters!

Supporting the 7 Habits at home!

February At Home Activity


This month’s Habit: Habit 3 Put First Things First

Activity: Plan one-on-one Time

Due Date: February 26th


Please see attached activities below. We would love to have you share your Plan for one-on-one Time with us by February 26th, so we can proudly display our families practicing the 7-Habits at home!


Habit #3 Put First Things First- "Work First, Then Play"


What this means: Focus on what is important, schedule the important things first. Don’t be a dreamer - stay focused!

“I spend my time on things that are most important.”

“I say no to things I know I should not do.”

“I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan.”

“I am disciplined and organized.”


How can I do this in my life?

1. Do your homework as soon as you come home from school.

2. Do something you have been putting off for a long time.

3. Think about your most important responsibilities. Do them first.


Great Books for Habit #3- Put First Things First

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

Pokey and the Spelling Test by Sean Covey

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss
