Ekstrand Field Days

Please click on the link below to access the informational letter from Mr. Burke that contains additional information regarding field days this spring at Ekstrand.



For guidance this month students are finishing their lessons about emotions. They have been learning how to recognize other people's feelings as well as their own feelings. At this time they are focusing on recognizing the changes in their own bodies when their feelings get strong and then knowing how to calm down those strong feelings. A few great example of these "body clues" are clenching your hands into fists when you are angry or getting a tummy ache when you are worried about something. These are wonderful clues to recognize so that people can begin to calm down before saying something or doing something hurtful.


The PTO is looking for a treasurer for their organization. If you are interested please come to the May 7th meeting at 6:30 p.m. at CDIS Media Center.
