Guidance this week:

I hope everyone had a great week. I would like to take this time to provide an update as to what was discussed in Guidance this week. We are currently working on problem-solving and respect. Our second graders have been busy practicing I-messages using the formula I feel __________ when ________________. This week, we continued to practice our social skills by using our puppets Wagner, Carmen, and Tuggles to put on plays for our classes. We practiced situations in which we use the words please and thank you in addition to problem solving skills such as sharing or picking a number to decide who goes first. Some of our classes had time to play Doggie, Doggie, where's my bone in order to practice using our I feel messages. Next up for second grade is Recognizing and Handling Anger.

National Wear RED Day, Feb. 4th, 2016

Let's unite to prevent heart disease and stroke...

Our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, and coworkers are at risk. Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year - more than all cancers combined. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.

If you would like a shirt please return the form attached with a minimum of a $15 donation. Make checks payable to JRFH. Return to Ms. Roof by January 19th.
