A note from the principal's desk...
I'll keep this short this week so that we can all return to our Super Bowl Festivities. I don't even like pro football and this year has really drawn me in. Man, I guess Matt Stafford really can win in the playoffs! (Insert all disgruntled eyerolls and Lion's fan frustration here).
Just a reminder that we only have school Monday-Wednesday this week. We are off Thursday-Monday, with Tuesday, February 22 being our next day back. I will be out of town next weekend and won't be sending a newsletter.
In case you missed my email earlier this week, here is the video I sent describing some of the expectations we are focusing on moving forward.
Have a great (short) week everyone!
Yours in Rocket Pride,
Scott Panozzo, Principal

100 Hours Challenge
The Reeths-Puffer Wellness Committee is challenging all staff and students (and families) to participate in 100 hours outdoors in the month of January. This challenge is inspired from 1,000 Hours Outside .
This is an attempt to match nature time with screen time. Children are spending an average of 1200 hours a year on screens. Let's work to encourage spending this time outdoors and shift towards a more productive and healthy outcome. :)
This challenge will began on January 1. If you are feeling inspired to try 1,000 hours outdoors, that challenge runs through the end of the calendar year.
