    Coach's Corner

    We would like to congratulate the following students who were selected to represent Osteen Elementary at this year’s Elk’s Club Hoop Shoot. Maranda Newberry, Sean Carlson, and Salomon Georges earned the right to represent our school based on their ability to shoot basketball free throws. All three students practiced hard and did their personal best to earn the chance to participate in this annual contest. If you practice shooting hoops, maybe you can represent Osteen Elementary next year!
    As the holiday season approaches, often 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

    The Core Concepts and Skills

    Grades K-2                                                                   
    The primary classes are creating a masterpiece using TEXTURE!  We started with an artist version of the sun then added a touch of the sky using finger PAINT!!! That was so much fun!  Finger-paint has a marvelous texture and looked great on our pictures.  The landscape comes next using small pieces of fabric.  We hope to bring these home right before winter break.   Try to explore textures at home and outside by describing how something feels.  In addition to our painting, we are also learning about fun facts about the sun.          

    Grades 3-5                                                                        
    The intermediate grades are finishing up a folded paper "Sugar Skull" in celebration of "Dia de los Muertos" or "Day of the Dead." We learned about simple machines by using a hinge to make the lower jaw move. The next BIG project is using fibers and making a weaving in a radial symmetrical design.  The colors are decided according to our lesson on color; primary, secondary, monochromatic, complementary, cool, warm, or neutrals. The art of weaving is very relaxing and a great fine motor skill. It can also develop math skills by using specific patterns.
