As I have been in classrooms, I have seen a lot of you utilizing GoNoodle, and I must say it is very impressive and effective in providing students short "brain breaks" and opportunities to get up, stretch, and move around. If any of you are not familiar with GoNoodle and would like to know more about it and how to incorporate it in your classroom, Mrs. Layton does an amazing job implementing it with her students! Below is the link in case you would like to check it out.


Thank you so much for being so supportive of our fundraiser this year and helping promote it in your classroom! I am really hoping we increased our sales from last year. We will continue to fund raise throughout the year and will use Big Kahuna again.
