Digital Detox Week - May 1st to 7th

This week Digital Detox Week! This annual event is where we are encouraged to turn off our screens (yes, that means phones, IPads, laptops, TVs, computers - anything with a digital screen!) and are encouraged to 'turn on' other things in life. Instead of relying on digital entertainment, we are encouraged to read, write, explore the outdoors, exercise, spend time with family and friends, play a board game ... the possibilities are endless!


Encourage your families and your students to participate in digital detox. You will reap many benefits and rewards!


Here are some websites that have some ideas for digital detoxing!

Attention 1st-5th Grade and SPED Teachers! Pick Up Your Banda Copies NOW!

Please stop by Jennifer's Office to pick up the copies of your completed Bandas. There is a bin by my whiteboard with folders with each teacher's name.


Since I do not want to interrupt your teaching time with your students, I appreciate taking an extra moment to stop by frequently to pick up your copies.


Once we get mailboxes, I will be able to put your copies in your box.


Thank you for your help with this!
