*Both meetings will take place @ 5:30 pm in the Grand Avenue Little Theater
Starting in January, 3rd graders will be learning the difference between good teasing and bad teasing. We will be talking about the power of words. Words can be used to express our feelings and thoughts, words can be used to hurt others, and words can be used to solve problems.
Students in 4th and 5th grade will be learning the importance of creating a safe and respectful learning environment by participating in Act Now!, a Healthykidslearnmore.com e-learning program. Act Now! was created by education experts at the Children’s Health Education Center, in collaboration with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, and takes a new, technological approach to tackling one of our schools’ most troubling issues, bullying.
When the 4th graders finish their unit on bullying, retired police officer, Bruce Henn, will be using the Healthykidslearnmore.com e-learning program It’s UR Choice to talk with them about substance use.
· You do not have to make your children into wonderful people. You only have to remind them that they are wonderful people. If you do this consistently from the day they are born they will believe it easily.
E-mail Miss Sadie if you have thoughts or questions about how to accomplish this task.

To set an Ala Carte Limit, click on it and you can choose an amount to limit per day or do not allow Ala Carte Purchases.

In order for medications to be distributed, pills must be in a prescription bottle with proper labeling. Students may carry inhalers with them, however, an AMA form must be on file in the office.
