Las Positas Updates

Happy Friday, Las Positas Lions~

Happy Friday~

We have been having so much fun with the students. This week the holiday spirit kicked in and we have been starting the mornings with holiday music to add some "cheery" and "merry" to our "balanced" days.

As we finalize our last week of school of 2021 year, please help our students continue to be "principled" "communicators" who are "inquirers" and "caring" in a "balanced" way. (I hope each of these quoted words are extremely familiar by now~.)

Have a very well balanced weekend!

How can families help develop students who are Balanced at home?

  • Create a daily schedule that includes time for school work, outside physical activity, arts and music, rest, balanced meals.
  • Allow time for a variety of activities daily with your children (school activities, indoor play, outside play, active play and quiet activities)
  • Model doing a little bit of everything in front of your child: play, learn, exercise, rest, eat healthy foods
  • Praise your child for demonstrating a balance lifestyle
  • Visit many different places to learn: libraries, museums, nature trails and nature preserves, parks, Historical Parks
  • Explore different hobbies: yoga, jogging, knitting, cards, marbles, collecting stickers

What does being balanced mean to you?
