News for the Week!

This week is flying by so fast – more so than I could imagine! In fact, I can’t believe it is already Halloween!!! This is a friendly reminder that students ARE NOT allowed to wear the costumes to school. A few of them asked, but the answer was no. Please also limit the amount of Halloween candy that you send with your child. Eventually, it all adds up! If you are interested to see how many calories are in the candy, check out this link:

Be sure to scroll all the way down! On a personal note, we typically buy our kid’s candy from them for about $20 each…. That way, we know they are not stuffing their mouths with unnecessary treats that will only get them on a sugar high followed by a sudden “crash and burn”.

Hot topic: One of our friends, Molly, will be featured on ABC 13 tomorrow night. She was interviewed for Christi Myer’s Health Check. Please set your DVR’s to ABC13 at 6:40 to see her report! I am so proud of her!!!

This week, we have a lot of new things happening. First of all, I wanted to let everyone know about a great new program that the district has provided us with. It is called Go Animate. I showed the kids this morning and they are in love with it. I told them that if they would like to skip their homework, and work on one, that would be fine with me! Like anything new we do, exploring is always the best steps before asking for a quality project to be composed. To login to their account, they need to go through their Edmodo account. Please remind them that they do not need to select the button that says, I’m A Student! (That is only for first time users. )

Yesterday, I showed them another piece of technology, Glogster. They all enjoyed creating a glog of themselves.
