Hello Highline Families,
This week starts off our Wellness Week here at Highline. The flyer below details what we are focusing on for each day. You will also see your student with a Healthy Habit Tracker. We are encouraging our students in the next weeks to make healthy choices like drinking water, exercising regularly, and eating more vegetables and fruits across the week. Kids may turn in their tracker pages to enter the Raffle for prizes awarded at the end of the week!

Kids Heart Challenge - March 29 through April 23
Dear Families of Highline,
We are two weeks from the close of our Kids Heart Challenge. Students are excited to be learning how to be heart healthy. Please help us keep others healthy and save lives by asking for donations.
Go to http://www.heart.org/kidsheartchallenge to join our school in taking a healthy pledge. Then, share your heart-healthy pledge by sending at least 10 emails or ecards to your family, friends and neighbors, and ask them to pass it on.
I know I can count on you. Thank you for your support!
Mrs. Moore, PE Teacher
Social Emotional Learning Curriculum
This month, our schoolwide theme is problem solving. During school, we’ll be reminding students to use the Second Step Problem-Solving Steps:
· S: Say the problem
· T: Think of solutions
· E: Explore consequences
· P: Pick the best solution
As you can see, the first letter of each step spells the word ”step.” Remembering “step” helps students solve problems with each other in safe and respectful ways.
Second Step lessons specifically teach students to use each step and reinforce the message that solutions need to be safe and respectful. You will be receiving Home Links about the steps that describe why solving problems is important and including fun activities to do with your child to help him or her learn and practice the steps. We hope the steps will be helpful for you and your child when there are problems at home.
