FIELD DAY IS FRIDAY at BLHS
Coach Eller is still looking for a few more volunteers. Please check out his note below:
Field Day will be broken up into two different times. Kindergarten to 2nd grade will have their Field Day from 9-11 AM. 3rd to 5th grade will have their Field Day from 1:00-2:45 PM. I do ask that if you volunteer that you show up 20 minutes prior so that I can run through the information for Field Day with you.
Thank you for considering volunteering for Field Day, I could not run this day without all the volunteers, it is greatly appreciated! We will have a lot of activities for that day that I know the kids will enjoy!
Just click on the Signup Genius link if you want to volunteer!

Gray Hawk Neuro-News
Our nervous systems and physiological states create and produce the behaviors in school we observe, question, discuss, punish, suspend, seclude, and attend to in all moments throughout the day! As educators who sit with 30 to 180 plus nervous systems every day, we have traditionally paid attention to observable behaviors, assessing them as appropriate, disrespectful, inappropriate, oppositional, aggressive, manipulative, and a variety of other labels and classifications.
Polyvagal Theory and the social and affective neuroscience research now share; that education requires “state regulation” so we are able to access and integrate the cognitive and mental tasks we need to succeed in school and positively navigate life experiences. In this webinar, Dr. Desautels will share the practices that address the nervous system states of our children and adolescents in the classroom preparing the brain and body to learn deeply, mitigating negative behaviors and meeting students in their brain and body state.
If you would like to recognize an adult at Gray Hawk, please fill out this brief form to let us know the "who" and the "why" and we will recognize that person with a certificate and recognition each Friday!
