Also, while on the subject, I would like to mention that several students are bringing candy / sugar type items for their snack time or no snack at all. I know kids can be picky, but my eyes will light up with joy if they all start bringing in fruit, yogurt, nuts...granola bars...etc! BRAIN food!!
Students who are not bringing a snack are often asking other students to share and it's hard for them to watch others eat without wanting a snack too! Please try to send a healthy snack each day.
Sugar affects their ability to perform well and affects their behavior.
In honor of this request, I have included the video for Disco Brain for your enjoyment!
Thanks for everything you do! I hope to see you all at the Gala!
