Stefanik Elementary Weekly Update

Wellness Week and The Rainbow Project

Dear Stefanik Elementary School Families,

I hope this email finds you and your families healthy and well. Just a few updates and reminders for our upcoming week.

This Monday, April 20th through Friday, April 24th Stefanik will be having a “Wellness Week”. During this week we will be focusing on our health and taking care of ourselves and those we love. I have attached a calendar of activities, websites, and projects for you to explore with your families.

Also, we would like you to create something like the children in Italy, Spain and some local towns are doing to send messages of positivity and hope to others. You can write your message in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Chinese or any other language of national origin. You must include the following in your work:

❏ Pick a phrase, put it in any language you choose, or use the samples


  • Todo saldrá bien:​ Everything will be alright

  • Juntos Podemos:​ Together we can

  • Venceremos:​ We will overcome

❏ Pick one hashtag: #stefanikstrong #shinebright #weareinthistogether

❏ Create a rainbow: You can make the rainbow using any material you wish. Here are some options of what you can create:

  • Make a drawing on paper and hang it in your window

  • Make a banner and hang it outside

  • Do a chalk drawing outside on the concrete

  • Use yarn, beads or Play-Doh

  • Make a decorated dessert

  • Take a picture or a screenshot of your work and upload it on Google Classroom under the assignment entitled “El arcoíris” - Everything will be alright!- by Monday, April 27th.. You should ​not​ be in the picture.

  • Some of your rainbows will be selected to be displayed at Stefanik. Let’s share positivity with others! I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
