    As the holiday season approaches, often times we are surrounded by lots of extra food and treats. It is easy to gain weight and feel sluggish from overeating treats. During this holiday season, try to make good choices when eating and snacking. Look for healthy snacks like fruits and vegetables, and give them a try when they are offered to you. It is certainly ok to eat a few sweet treats this holiday season, just try not to overdo it!
    Remember to keep active over the holiday break. Your body needs exercise to strengthen your muscles and improve your endurance, balance, and agility. For two weeks, during the holiday break, you will not be going to recess or PE. It is up to you to get yourself up and moving! Go for a bike ride, play tag, go for a walk, or practice for your favorite sport. It really doesn’t matter which activity you choose, as long as you choose to move for at least an hour every day.

    Enjoy a healthy, fun, and active holiday season!

    Experiencing Art 

    Primary                    
                                                     
    The children in Grades K and 1 have been learning about Surrealism Art. Focusing on artists such as Marc Chagall and Salvador Dali.  One of our favorite pieces is the “Persistence of Memory” by Dali. 
    We are creating clocks with moving hands, numbers, and colorful faces.  Most of the children can tell time to the hour and skip count by 5’s with assistance.  The plan is to finish this unit before the winter break.   

    Grades 2-5       
    The children in Grades 2 through 5 are also studying Surrealism Art and Salvador Dali.   
    Surrealism Art can be summed up as a dreamlike state, where things look real, but maybe twisted, bent, enlarged, or distorted. The children are learning the difference between analog and digital timepieces, as well as creating a surrealistic clock of their own.    
    Art Assessment: Students are assessed in three areas of Art for an overall grade.
      * skills                                                            * content                                         * effort and behavior      
    The personal development section on the report card will reflect good choices made in Art.  A 2 or 3 may impact status such as honor roll.
