Taste Test

In recognition of National Eating Disorder Awareness week, students sampled healthy foods grown at the District 6 Farm. The students loved trying roasted sweet potatoes and collard greens. We are so lucky to have access to fresh vegetables that encourage our students to eat healthy!

Labyrith at RES

Students spent 2 days this week learning about labyrinths and how they can be used as a tool for dealing with emotions. Mrs. Nelson explained the history and purpose of labyrinths and then guided students in walking through a large, floor labyrinth. Students reported feeling relaxed, happy, and less worried after the experience! We are so glad to have access to resources that can address mental health concerns by preventing rising stress, anxiety, or depression in our student’s lives.

Powerschool App

The latest update to the Powerschool parent app for Android devices is not working. While PowerSchool is working to resolve this issue, parents can still access the Parent Portal through a web browser on a tablet, computer, or your mobile device. The link to the Parent Portal is available at under Parents & Students. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Morning Learning Lab

Don't forget, the Morning Research Lab is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 7:00-7:35. The lab is used for research and inquiry purposes, as well as completing assignments in ItsLearning or Spelling City. We look forward to seeing our inquiring Eagles in the Learning Lab!

Prescriptions from Nurse Beth

All students are required to have an up-to-date immunization certificate on file in order to stay in school. If you have been contacted about this, please make sure this is taken care of no later than Friday, September 14th.

If your child has been ill, remember the 24 Hour Rule of Thumb:

· 24 hours fever free without any fever reducing medications (Tylenol, Motrin) for 24 hours before returning to school

· 24 hours without nausea, vomiting, & diarrhea (and tolerating a normal diet)

· 24 hours of receiving medication such as antibiotics, eye ointment/drops

Remember students may not transport medications to and from school. A parent/guardian must bring in all medications.

Let’s stay healthy! Studies have shown that school absenteeism due to illness is reduced when good hand washing is practiced (before & after eating, after restroom use & playing outside).

It is my privilege to care for your child while here at school. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
