    As the holiday season approaches, oftentimes 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
    Primary​

    The children in grades kindergarten through second have been working on so many projects such as weavings, turkey pictures, and chalk drawings. It takes several art classes this time of the year with all of the wonderful enrichment activities, shows, and performances. The weaving projects will be heading home after the Thanksgiving break. 
     
    Grades 2-5

    The intermediate grades are continuing the study of 3-dimensional forms such as cubes, spheres, rectangular prisms, cones, and cylinders. This will be beneficial when their geometry unit comes up in the general ed. classes. It’s great to make the connection between art and mathematics. 


    Art Assessment

    The children are assessed in three areas of art for an overall grade: * skills * content * effort and behavior
    The report card has a section on personal development, whereas scores will reflect good choices made in art. A
    score of a 2 or 3 will impact overall status such as honor roll eligibility.

    Art in the Community
