Florence Update

February 29, 2016

Dear Florence Families,

Last week brought a lot of fun and celebration to Florence Elementary. Thanks to PTA's Heather Allen for all her work to organize and recognize our Reflections Contest participants and winners. Our students did such a great job!

We then ended last week with our annual Talent Show and our PTA, once again, went above and beyond! A special thanks to Carolina Cuevas and all the volunteers for their hard work to make it an extraordinary evening of talent. Students showed off their skills in dancing, singing, playing musical instruments, art, and lego construction....to name a few. We also appreciate the funny and witty talents of our own Caroline Holzberger for mc'ing the festivities. It was an awesome night!!!

Hope everyone has a great week!!

School Walk for Diabetes - note from Nurse Nelson

We are gearing up for the annual School Walk for Diabetes on Saturday, April 2nd. It is going to be a lot of fun this year! I hope you will plan to join us and support a great cause. We are raising money to support programs aimed at curing and preventing diabetes, and improving the lives of all those affected by diabetes, including many students and staff in KISD.

Your student should bring home a registration envelope in their take home folder on March 1st. You can use the envelope to register for the walk or you can register and pay online. If you register online be sure to choose Florence as your school. Registration envelopes and t-shirt orders should be turned in to Nurse Nelson at Florence. We would love to get everyone registered as soon as possible, however, you can register up until the day of the walk.

There is also a Whip & Nae Nae Challenge going on throughout KISD in March. Students will be learning the PE version of the dance during PE. In the spirit of this wellness initiative we will also be promoting healthy habits at school in the month of March including: 5 a day of fruits and vegetables, “Rethink your drink” (Less sugary intake), More outdoor play, less screen time, and Get a good night’s rest each day.

This is going to be a great event that you won’t want to miss! Be sure to stay tuned for more opportunities to support the cause in the next few weeks. If you have any questions please call Nurse Nelson at 817-744-4720.
