~ IMPORTANT NOTES ~

FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK

Although short, this week held many great conversations about student learning. Thank you for your time and dedication to your child's education. We will continue our conferences next Wednesday, which is also an early release day.


Please make a special note of this coming weekend and next week's school calendar. Students do not return to school until next Wednesday, which is, again, an early release day. During this time off, consider having your child take a moment to write about his/her adventures. This could be something that they share when we finally return next week!


Finally, please take time to thank our Veterans. Tuesday, November 11th, is Veteran's Day. It is a day to honor those who have served in the Armed Forces. Throughout our Nation's history, the members of our Armed Forces have volunteered in the face of great danger to protect our country and support the cause of peace around the world. On Veteran's Day, we remember those who have served in previous wars, those who are serving today, and those who did not live to become veterans. Our nation owes these brave defenders a debt of gratitude. Thank you to those of you who have proudly served our nation.


Have a wonderful long weekend!


Mrs. Capes :)

10 Steps to Your Healthiest School Year Ever!



  • Get back on schedule. It’s difficult to give up the summer schedule but it’s important to re-establish a reasonable bed time. Start a regular meal time schedule too.
  • Start off strong with a healthy breakfast. A good breakfast provides energy and will help keep you alert and attentive in class. Highly sugared foods leave you feeling tired soon after eating. School performance is related to what you eat.
  • Drink plenty of water. Water is the best fluid to stay hydrated without the added sugar found in some juices and soft drinks. Remember to also drink the recommended amount of milk.
  • Don’t forget to wash your hands often. Keep hands away from the face, mouth, and nose where germs can enter your body.
  • Boost your immune system. Get plenty of sleep, eat colorful fruits and vegetables every day and wash your hands often.
  • Eat a nutritious and yummy lunch. Choose foods from all the food groups. Different food groups supply the body with energy to think, move and grow.
  • Cut back on sugar and salty snacks. Limit soda, sport drinks, candy, chips and ice cream-they add on extra calories, can harm your teeth and leave you feeling weak and tired.
  • Enhance your brain performance. Exercise, play memory games, do puzzles, and eat brain foods like berries, cold water fish and nuts. Just say “NO” to fast food and enjoy a home cooked meal with your family at least 4 nights a week.
  • Get at least 30 minutes of exercise every day-at recess and at home. Go for a daily walk with a parent, a friend or your pet. Exercise helps the body be strong, flexible, and resilient.
  • Turn off the TV and video games at least one hour prior to bedtime. Take time to relax, take a bath or shower, brush your teeth and pack up for the morning.
