4th Grade Recorders
As you may know, the Soprano Recorder is a curricular unit of study for all 4th graders in OASD. The recorder is a useful tool for many reasons.
This year, students will begin studying the recorder in November, and it will be integrated with curriculum for the duration of the year. The fee for a recorder is $5. This fee will be added to all Family Access accounts in 4th grade. If you choose to “opt out” because you already have a recorder from an older sibling/relative, please contact either Mrs. C. or Mrs. Soderstrom in the office no later than October 1st. If you do not contact us, it will be assumed you would like the school to order an instrument for you and a fee will be added to your account.
Please contact Mrs. C. with any questions: email@example.com.

The Mankins Minute
Overdrive is an online database of electronic books. The Oconomowoc Area School District subscribes to this resource. If you are interested in having your student check out an electronic book through an electronic device please come and see me in the library or send me an email. Students in the district are allowed to check out up to three electronic books at a time. If you would like to take a look at the selection please visit the family resource page and click on online library. There you will see Overdrive. Take a look!
As always, if you have any questions about any resources feel free to contact me at school or through my email.

District Wellness Tip of the Week
Mood + Mindset = Success
Moods can influence how well we do in certain situations, but so can something else: our mindset. What's the difference between a mood and a mindset? Moods are the emotions we feel. A mindset is the thoughts and ideas that go along with that mood. Mood and mindset go hand in hand because our thoughts can influence our mood. You've probably chosen your mood before without even realizing it — many times people choose a mood naturally without thinking about it. But practicing ways to choose your mood intentionally can help you get good at it. So next time you feel a strong mood, stop and name it. Ask yourself if it's the ideal mood for what you're trying to accomplish. www.kidshealth.org
