A month full of events................
We have 15 days left of school and our calendar is packed full of fun activities!
This Wednesday, we are hosting "Muffins with Mom" (Or someone special) at 7 a.m. until 7:40 a.m. It required an RSVP to attend so they may purchase enough muffins and drinks.
Thursday night is the Spring Music Program for Kindergarten, 2nd and 4th grades. Miss Buckland sent out information to these grade levels. The program starts at 6, students should be in their classrooms by 5:45 p.m.
Our end of year benchmarking has begun! Teacher swill be in touch to notify you of your students academic growth for this school year as they complete this process.
Field Day for grades K-2 is on Wednesday, May 22nd in the afternoon. Field Day for grades 3-5 is on Thursday, May 23rd in the afternoon. Please make sure your child wears gym shoes and clothes for appropriate weather. Sending in a water bottle might be a good idea as well.
The student's final day of school is Friday, May 24th. Grade levels are planning fun activities for that day with the students. Report cards will go home with students on this day as well.

Counseling Corner with Miss Headley:
A coping skill is a way that you handle overwhelming feelings, anger, stress, fear or any strong emotions you may have.
When faced with these overwhelming, stressful, or tense situations we can choose to use a positive or a negative coping skill. Student(s) have been learning the differences between these coping skills and how to handle strong emotions. Adversity is inevitable, however given the skills they may find these situations a little less stressful when using a positive coping skill. Here are a handful of the positive and negative coping skills we have been discussing. Please help us to continue the discussion at home to help your student choose a positive coping skill when dealing with overwhelming, stressful or tense situations.
Taking a break
Talking it out with a friend/teacher/parents
Writing your feelings down on paper
Utilize a stress ball
Listening to music
Running away from an adult
Saying mean things
Shutting down and refusing to speak
LOST AND FOUND - Is your child missing a clothing item or lunch box?
