1/11/19 Parent Newsletter

Dear Parents,                                                                                 January 11, 2019

Happy Friday!  It's been a wild weather week, that's for sure!  Which is always a good reminder about making sure your child has appropriate clothing and footwear for outside recess.  If the temperature (or with wind chill) is below 0, we don't go outside for recess.  But this doesn't happen very often so it's important that they are always prepared!

Hopefully everyone is aware that the new date for the dance performance is Monday evening at 6:30 at BRMS.  We are so excited to share our dances with you!  Hope to see you there.  Remember there is a potluck beforehand, starting at 5:30 pm.

We are starting a new share process.  As a group we decided to have a different theme for our shares each week.  This upcoming week, the theme will be to bring in something that is handmade by the student.  Thank you for your support with this! Here is the share schedule below:

Mondays:  Gavin, Ava, Anna, Jean
Tuesdays:  Aly, Maggie, Molly, Morgan
Wednesdays:  Michael, Ella, Sophia, Violet, Callan
Thursdays:  Collin, Sutton, Tory, Noah
Fridays:  Athos, Micah, Eli, Arthur.

During all school meeting this week, our class taught k-3 students about recycling. As part of our unit on Natural Resources, we are learning about the importance of taking care of and stewardship towards our planet.  This is a passion of mine, and I believe that this is the perfect age to begin thinking about what we can all do to make a difference.  We all have the ability to make a difference and to be a Lorax...that speaks for those things that have no voice.  Hopefully your child will bring some of what they are learning to their life at home.  We will be discussing ways we can conserve energy, both here at school and at home.  We are also exploring the energy life cycle of different objects to understand all the natural resources involved in designing, making, packaging, transporting and disposal of these objects.  It's pretty amazing to look at just how many different types of natural resources/energy go into even the smallest of things!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Stay warm!
