     Dear Parents:

     The Specials Teachers are presenting Healthy World, Healthy Me Week from April 20 – 24.  This collaboration is in alignment with several curricular areas that emphasize personal wellness and healthy life choices. Our goal during that week is to focus on lifestyles that emphasize attention to living on a clean Earth, taking good care of our town and home communities, and making healthy food and physical exercise choices. 

     In their classrooms, students will discuss the many ways that we can all conduct healthy lifestyles. Physical movement, expressive drawing and meditation, songs and dance, studies of the importance of food as fuel, and Earth Week seed planting and recycling activities, will occur during Specials classes. We are excited about the upcoming week!

     On Wednesday, April 22nd, families are cordially invited to Center School from 3:35 – 7:00 pm to view the wonderful recycle art project in the lower hallway leading to the Dining Hall.  Come see the amazing designs that you helped to craft from the colorful bottle caps collection.  The project is now complete and we no longer are in need of bottle caps.  Thank you for your strong support of our beautiful creations from recycled materials!

     On Friday, April 24th our week will culminate in a school wide celebration.  Please have your student wear casual clothing on April 24th, in order to be comfortable in a guided walk around the school. 

Thank you in advance for your support.
