Mrs. Langlois Gym Class Scoop
It was an exciting month of October in the gym! With the younger students, K-2nd, we explored many different, creative ways to move within our own personal space. Our big focus was being sure to move safely as we maintain a safe space between ourselves and others around us. Our 3rd-6th grade kids learned a variety of positions in the game of soccer, rotating and practicing all of them. They focused on ball handling skills with their feet, soccer throw-ins, passing, and goal tending skills.
The last week of October is typically a fan favorite as we turned the lights down low and got in the mood for Halloween with our annual Headless Horsemen tag game! Students really put their imaginations to the test as we transformed our gym into our haunted Sleepy Hallow forest. If you haven’t heard details yet from your child(ren), be sure to ask!
The weather is turning colder over the next couple of weeks. Havel students will continue to go outdoors for recess throughout the fall and winter months. Havel reviews playground conditions, weather conditions, and temperature each day (board policy- students are to remain indoors if the temperature is less than 10 degrees) to determine if students can go outdoors for recess or if the students need to remain inside. The exercise and fresh air are beneficial for students' physical and educational growth. A doctor's note/medical diagnosis is required for students to remain inside during recess time. Students should be dressed for the weather as we head into the colder days and upcoming winter months.
As the colder and rainy weather is driving us to be inside more frequently, find some time to enjoy a family game together or watch a favorite movie on a cold day. Our schedules will become even busier as the winter holidays approach, so stop, relax, and spend some time with your children. The memories you make with your kids will last a lifetime!
Assembly Wrap Up
End of 1st Quarter
During November, Havel will distribute reports cards electronically. The first marking period grades will be sent electronically to families after scheduled parent-teacher conferences at the end of the day on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.
To receive the report cards, parents will need to have a secure PowerSchool account. Parents who do not have access to a PowerSchool account will need to register for one prior to Friday, November 8. The report cards will then be automatically e-mailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account. If you already have a PowerSchool account, you do not need to take any further action. The report card automatically will be sent to you electronically.
Please note that if you have students in junior high school and high school, the reports cards will be electronically sent by the end of the day, Friday, November 8, 2019.
