Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Being a successful football player takes teamwork, discipline, practice, hard work, goal-setting and time management. Football players and students have many of these important qualities in common. Students; continue to work hard and keep in mind that your current experiences and choices are paving the way for future success and wins!

Today was GROUNDHOG DAY, a famous day where a groundhog predicts the weather. This year the groundhog did not see its shadow, which means we are likely to have an EARLY SPRING!!

Another Successful Parent Meeting

We had another great turnout of parents at our monthly meeting on Friday. We want to extend a a huge thank you to Educare and Mr. Khodr Farhat for presenting us with a check and always supporting our students.

Parents learned about the importance of read alouds and even took big books home to enjoy with their children. Parents were also challenged with a STEM activity of building a tower out of index cards and how this activity can be easily mimicked at home.

See the directions below and try it yourself

What Can We Learn From Martin Luther King Jr.?

Let’s take the time to learn from wisdom of MLK Jr. and help guide our children/students to a better society and community. Read through the quotes below and use the list of questions at the end to spark some interesting conversations.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

Welcome back Oakman families,

We hope you had a great long weekend. Today school was closed in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This nationally recognized holiday is a great chance to reflect on civil rights, American history and how everyone can help make a difference in the world through kindness and respect.

This week, NWEA testing will continue for all grade levels. Please check with classroom teachers for their testing schedule.
