We are beyond excited to get our motor lab up and going! Last week several teachers received training from our PT Kelly on the components of the motor lab. Teachers and students are eager to start using it! Follow this link to learn more about it. https://youtu.be/y36NG5-ERck

IT'S COOL TO BE KIND
We need "Kindness" spotters. If you notice an act of kindness outside of school hours, please share the name of the student (if known) with me. You can even report acts of kindness you see at home. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Counselor's Corner- Mrs. Twigg
School counselors help students with social/emotional development, academic development and career development. We do that in several ways. I spend almost half of my day in classrooms implementing classroom units and lessons. The other half of my day is spent seeing students for brief individual counseling and group counseling, working on individual student planning and collaborating with teachers and parents. Sometimes parents seek therapy outside of school. We have a therapist who comes to our school weekly to see students who need counseling beyond what a school counselor can provide. If you are interested in this service, please contact me at email@example.com or 743-4810, and I can provide you with more information.
Ms. Paula's P.A.T Parenting Tips
1. Sleep promotes growth. Growth hormone is primarily secreted during deep sleep.
2. Sleep protects the heart. Lack of sleep can cause vascular damage due to high levels of stress hormones.
3. Sleep affects weight. Research tells us tired kids (adults, too) crave higher fat foods when they are sleep deprived.
4. Sleep helps fight germs. Sleep is when bodies produce infection fighting proteins.
5. Sleep affects BEHAVIOR! Impulsive behaviors increase with sleep deprivation.
6. Appropriate amounts of sleep INCREASES attention span! Did you know sleep deprivation mirrors ADHD?
7. Sleep boosts learning. Sleep is when the brain processes learning from the day.
Appropriate sleep requirements per age:
1-3 years old: 12-14 hours
3-6 years old: 10-12 hours
7-11 years old: 10-11 hours
