October 21 - 25 will be ...

Each day, there will be activities to generate discussion and/or reinforce a principle component of the campaign for elementary school kids -- making healthy choices.

Monday:   Sports Day and Pack a Healthy Snack 

Tuesday:  Wear Red 

Wednesday:   Crazy Hair to Show you Care and/or Wear Orange for Unity day. 

Thursday:  Mix It up Day: Mixed up Clothes/ Mix it up at Lunch 

Friday:  Hats ON for Healthy Choices:  Wear a Hat 

We are excited to share with you that our school community will be celebrating Unity Day on Wednesday, October 23rd this year. Unity Day is an annual event occurring during National Bullying Prevention Month in October that promotes joining together to create healthier communities through kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. It was started by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center in 2011 and is now celebrated around the world.

On this day, we will invite all students and staff to wear orange for Unity Day and Crazy Hair for Red Ribbon Week. Our No Place for Hate students will be planning activities for all of our students to participate in on Unity Day!

We hope you’ll take this opportunity to talk to your children about bullying prevention and all the positive things we can do to make healthier communities. For more information on the history of Unity Day and its impact, please go to https://www.PACER.org/bullying/about/history.asp.

our first field trip

Our first field trip will be a visit to the Dougherty Station Library.  Please look inside your child's LO folder for important details, including the date and time for each class trip. 

All parents who have been cleared through our Be A Mentor system are welcome to join us as chaperones!

Science focus:  the moon

In October we will be studying the phases of the moon. A 'Moon Journal' will be sent home inside Thursday's LO folder.  Students and their families are encouraged to go outside and find the moon every evening!

On the 'Moon Journal,' students draw what they see in the sky and write the date. If they miss a night or if it is too overcast to see, it is ok to skip a night ... or two!  Please keep this journal at home; it does not need to be returned to school. 

We hope this activity will be fun for 1st graders and their families!

Soul Shoppe

Soul Shoppe teaches students important skills that support them academically and socially through life. This interactive program focuses on problem solving, conflict resolution, and creating a community of respect and growth. We've attended our second workshop. The children really enjoy learning empathy, how to express their feelings and using problem-solving tools in social situations. 

First grade life skill

red shoes

We strongly encourage your children to learn to tie their shoes by themselves. This important skill encourages independence, dexterity and brain development. It also helps teachers prevent back pain from constantly bending over! Take a look at this fun video with your child!
