Safety Reminder

Please remind your children to ONLY use our designated crosswalks before and after school. Our students' safety is extremely important to us, and students not using the crosswalks is very dangerous.

“Identify your problems but give your power and energy to solutions." - Tony Robbins

Motto: I seek solutions.

Talking points at home...

Before you tell other people about a problem, ask yourself, "Do I want them to give me advice, so I can solve my problem, or do I just want to share my problem with them?

What is the difference between wanting to share your problem with others vs. wanting advice from others? Why might you want one instead of the other?

Being More Active

  • Move more. Try to get between 30 and 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Short sessions of movement throughout the day add up.
  • Include physical activity in your daily routine. Walk as a family before or after meals.
  • Make playtime with your family fun. Be active by shooting hoops or playing tag.
  • Be active in the home. For example, you can dust, vacuum, garden, or walk the dog. These activities are good ways to burn calories.
  • Include activities, such as hiking or biking, when you go on vacation.
  • Limit TV, computer, and video game time to less than 2 hours per day. Encourage physical activity instead.
