🐝 The Weekly Buzz 🐝
From Palmer River Elementary School
May 26, 2023
It has been a very busy week here at Palmer River. Our first and second graders enjoyed a safety presentation by Think First Community Outreach. Students learned about bike safety and proper equipment that should be worn to keep our bodies safe while riding a bike. Our third graders traveled to the Carpenter Museum and learned about local history. They also visited the Plimoth Patuxet Museums to learn about the history of the Plymouth Colony and the Indigenous homeland. Our fourth graders spent time by the Palmer River and learned about the Macroinvertebrates inhabiting the river. A lot of learning occurred this week, both in and out of the classroom, and all had fun!
Be sure to check out the list below for more information regarding upcoming events. Have a wonderful weekend!

The Trait of the Month for May is Cooperation

Going Through A Tough Time?
Dear Palmer River Friends and Families,
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Mental health includes children’s mental, emotional, and behavioral well-being. It affects how children think, feel, act and learn. It is also instrumental in how children handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one in six children ages 2 - 8 has a mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder. Of course, this varies by region and other confounding variables.
Massachusetts has developed several initiatives to better serve our youth and families as the number of mental health challenges continues to rise in our Commonwealth. I have included some resource links in this newsletter that may be useful for a relative or neighbor in need of some support.
