The Eagle Express
Antrim Elementary School April 23, 2021
Beside a blip of a little spring snow, we are well on our way to spring-like weather and temperatures. It's so nice to see the daffodils blooming around the foundation, and it is so nice that it is staying lighter later.
I wanted to remind you of a few things as we move into next week. First, to avoid any confusion, our school plan remains intact, and masks are part of our health and safety mitigation strategies here at school. We also ask that students continue to leave toys at home. Secondly, our dismissals have been going smoothly, and I appreciate your part in helping the line move along at a reasonable pace. Please plan on arriving after 3pm to avoid causing a traffic jam down the hill. Finally, I just wanted say that plans are being made for a pod-based field day in June and a 4th grade moving-up celebration. Stay tuned for details.
Wishing you a lovely weekend,

Note from Robin Gregg, School Counselor
Classroom counseling lessons from the Second Step Bullying Prevention curriculum are continuing in all AES classrooms. Students have been practicing how to report bullying (Report---one of the 3 R's: Recognize, Report, Refuse) and also identifying specific adults at AES to whom they would feel comfortable reporting. In future lessons we will learn about bystander behavior and practice being an "upstander"---someone who recognizes when bullying is happening and does something about it. Information about the Kindergarten lessons is attached to this week's newsletter.

A Note from Ms. Lawler
Prevention is the best tool! Wear protective clothing with pants tucked into socks. Always check your clothing and pets after being outside, especial in tall grasses for ticks. Check your body after being outdoors in all these places ticks like to hide
- Under the arms
- In and around the ears
- Inside belly button
- Back of the knees
- In and around the hair
- Between the legs
- Around the waist
