October Character Traits
Organization at Home
The fewer things to carry, the more organized you are.
To keep yourself organized at home:
Desktop file box with a file for every single subject
Put the papers for past units in the folder at home instead of the backpack or locker
Create a portable office-a movable box with supplies to do homework
Have someone supervise homework time
Write important dates on the family calendar
Write names on clothing that will be coming to school
If your child has a home/school folder, check and empty it daily
-Ideas from Laurie Spangle-Bauer - Washburn School District Occupational Therapist and Chris Gaber-2nd Grade Teacher
Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch Day
Washburn school participates in the collective Apple Crunch because it encourages and celebrates the use of healthy, Wisconsin-grown foods in cafeterias across the state. We Crunch together to support our local farmers, to grow healthy eaters, and to build strong communities across our state and region.
What healthy snack or treat can you create this month with locally grown apples?
