Can you help?? Backpack Hooks Part 2
The Sunset Ranch PTC and Placer Valley Sunrise Rotary Club have partnered on a backpack hook project for all of our classrooms and we would like to thank all who helped on Part 1 of installation on April 12th.
We have Part 2 planned for May 19th at 4:00pm and could use the help of about 15 people once again. If you are available and willing, please let us know by signing up HERE.
Thank you so much!
For the month of MAY we are talking about Cooperation! Cooperation is about assistance and support, about collaboration and teamwork. It is a necessary tool in our toolbox for creating a community that cares for one another. Here is the definition we are using:
Cooperation: Working together and helping others.
A lot of messaging in our world would suggest that “doing it on your own” is a measure of success. And while independence is important, we must develop skills to work alongside one another and create things, together, that are better than anything we could create on our own. Successful people know when and how to ask for help and are generous in giving it out when they have something to offer! Cooperation requires great communication, self-awareness, and the ability to step up (or step back) when the time is right to best support whatever group you are working with. Over the course of the month, we will be creative in teams, accomplish amazing things side by side, and learn about what it means to do meaningful, PurposeFull work together.
Activity at Home:
Play the classic cooperative catch game as a family! Choose an object to toss back and forth. Use a water balloon if you are feeling brave or keep it simple with a beanbag. Stand across from your partner with your toes about one foot apart. One partner tosses the object to the other partner. Each time the object is caught, the partners take one step backwards to create a larger gap. The thrower and the catcher must work cooperatively to be successful! See how you can improve your communication and score (distance) over the course of the month.
Allergy Season is Here- Medical Waiver Info
With Springtime allergy season upon us, students are experiencing many allergy symtpoms that mimic Covid-related symptoms. Unfortunatley, if a child exhibits any reported symptom below, even just from allergies, RUSD will advise students to stay home, regardless of vaccination status. After reporting ANY symptoms from the following list, students must have a negative test result in order to return to school:
-Nausea or Vomiting
-Muscle or Body Aches
-New Loss of Taste of Smell
-Congestion or Runny Nose
Luckily, if your student has a history of seasonal allergies and has symptoms (congestion, runny nose, etc), RUSD has a medical waiver available. Once signed by a physician, the medical waiver can be kept on file for your student. If a student has a symptom that is excused by the waiver, a covid test will not be required in order to return to school. RUSD Medical Waiver
If you have any questions please contact our health aide, Rosie Molinaro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
