** Spring fever is definitely upon us. Behaviors are on the rise. Please closely supervise your students at all times.

** Changes will be made to the supply list to make it more uniform.

** Please allow kids to return books to the library each morning, as they bring them.

O is for Oxygen

The brain needs oxygen to function best! Designing more opportunities for movement, in and out of the classroom, is a surefire way to increase blood flow, promote health, and provide powerful learning experiences.

Kinesthetic activities help create connections in developing minds and allow students to process information in a while new way. Let kids jump-- literally-- into learning!

Mayer's week, in a nut shell:

I will be in this morning, then off to Itasca to hang out with the kindergarteners, for a little while. I will be in the office, the remainder of the week. I will be out on the track for most of the day, on Wednesday, but will have my radio with, if you need me. Friday is Kindergarten Graduation.

Please let me know if there is anything specific I can assist with. Have an incredible week!!
