I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far.
I wanted to share some pictures of what we made in art club last week.
TURKEY BOOKMARKS!!!! How cool! The students have really been enjoying this after school activity, and so have I. I can’t resist joining in to make my own craft as well.
Art club meets every Wednesday after school until 3:00 pm for anyone interested!
In health class, students are studying systems of the body and how they all work together.
A reminder, this quarters projects are as follows:
5th grade: create-a-plate packet and in class assignment
6th grade: FLEX Friday STEM activity
7th grade: cookbook with guidelines
8th grade: cookbook with guidelines
More information regarding the projects will be given in classes to come.
In gym, we are moving on to our first sports unit: Basketball. Students are asked to participate to the best of their ability, as I know students range from a variety of different skill levels when it comes to sports. As long as students are approaching the different activities with a positive mindset, this should be super fun! Be on the lookout for more pictures as the week goes on.
Have a great rest of the week!!!!

Good Morning, Everyone!
Welcome to the 2nd Quarter.
In health we will be changing gears and moving into our next unit, Nutrition and the Systems of the Body! I’m excited about this unit because there are so many different topics and new things to learn about. Each grade will be doing a different project:
3rd grade: Good/Bad for Teeth (in class)
5th grade: Create a Plate (in class/at home)
6th grade: Stem day to create skeleton (flex friday)
7th/8th grade: Cookbook (in class/at home)
I’m excited to get started.
Have a good rest of the week!!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
This week we were able to complete our first health test and continue working on our poster projects. The quarter is coming to an end and I’m extremely proud of what we’ve learned and been able to cover so far.
4th Grade- Great job this year! We finished the quarter by presenting our health projects. I’m impressed with your artistic abilities and all that you’ve learned this quarter! Thanks for a great year.
3rd Grade- I’m excited to start class with you! Please have a folder or a designated area to keep your things for class starting next quarter.
Happy Tuesday, all!
The quarter is coming to an end which means big things for health class. Grades 4-8 are reviewing for our test coming up next week. We are also working on finishing our awareness poster projects!
All classes will test on “Class 7” and all posters will be due “Class 8”. Students are finishing up “Class 6” this week, so for most classes, the test will be the students’ next class. We have reviewed for the test and I’m getting confident vibes from each classroom so I’m looking forward to see our growth from the beginning of the year to now.
Poster projects will be due “Class 8”, which for most classes is 2 weeks from now. The poster projects are intended to be a fun way for students to show me that they understand their given topic. In no way is this project meant to be stressful (or expensive)! Students were given posters and tools in class and will have one more class period to work on their posters (class 7 after test). Given the sensitivity of some of the poster topics they will not be displayed, however, I am asking for everyone to be conscious of the information they are choosing to put on their posters. I am not offended by these topics however others may be, and incase they are seen by others I want to be sure we are being as appropriate as possible.
If there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! I am always willing to help or further explain.
Have a great week!

Thank you all for taking time out of your day to join us for Parents to PE Week. We really had a blast and I know the children were very appreciative to spend a few hours with you!
1st and 2nd grade parents, you are awesome!!
Thank you for spending time in our classroom this week. It was a blast! The students love to bring out their competitive side, especially if it means going against their parents.
Those of you that couldn’t make it, we hope to see you next year!
We had a blast!!!! The students really enjoyed having you all as a part of our gym class. Thank you for participating and helping us bring a competitive edge to class.
If you weren’t able to make it, I hope to see you next year!
Happy middle of the week!!!
This week has gone by very fast. As our day cycle restarts itself tomorrow, I will have all of my classes on the same page!
Health classes are transitioning between topics right now. We are starting to get into stress and stress management, while learning how to appreciate each other’s different personality traits. Next week, I will be assigning topics for our first small project. We will be creating awareness posters for a variety of different subject areas that we have covered and will cover in unit 1.
In gym, classes are either playing “Cone-bee” or “Matball”. Conebee consists of different colored teams trying to knock frisbees off of cones using snakeskin balls. Matball is a lot like kickball, except there are 4 bases made of mats. Both games test strategy and use a lot of throwing skills. The classes seem to be enjoying these games very much, and are doing a great job adapting to modified rules when given.
