Keepin' it 100!
The second half of the school year is off to a quick start. This week at Fletcher we continued our celebration of Black History month with a guest speaker on the 100th day of school. Rev. Bruce Jackson spoke with our 2nd-5th graders about the importance of staying true to oneself (aka Keepin' it 100), making your dreams a reality, and how that ties in to the celebration of Black excellence this month. In the afternoon, our staff was treated to a healthy lunch from Panera (thank you PTA!) and then toured the VEBA Resource center to learn about all the wellness options available such as free yoga classes, acupuncture, mental health counseling, and nutrition counseling. They even got to experience a mindfulness and stretching class taught by expert instructor, Pilar Murillo.
Our running club surpassed a major milestone too! So far our runners have covered more than 2,500 total miles. That's 11,375 laps around the track!
The next two weeks will be short weeks as we wind down Trimester Two. As a reminder, there is no school on Friday the 18th and Monday the 21st.
Happy National School Counselor's Week!
THANK YOU MRS. HINCH!!!
