*RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS WEEK*
We are coming near the end of our RAOK week so today we will be making kindness leaves, flowers, and hearts for our tree. Please choose one of the items from your Homeroom teacher and write on it something kind that was done for you this week. It can be something simple that made you smile or feel happy. Tomorrow will be the last day we are collecting donations for the Ronald McDonald House so please don’t forget to bring any individually wrapped snacks and/or crackers or travel size hand sanitizer, mouthwash, or floss. Even one item will make a difference to a family going through a hard time. Remember, one kind gesture can change someone's entire day.
Good luck to the girls basketball team on their home games against Antigo tonight!
Physical inactivity is a major risk factor for developing coronary artery disease. It also increases the risk of stroke and such other major cardiovascular risk factors as obesity, high blood pressure, low HDL ("good") cholesterol and diabetes. Let's avoid this. The American Heart Association recommends that children and adolescents participate in at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. Any 7th grader attending the Pay to Play in the gym today needs to show their $2 to their homeroom teacher, walk to gym, and tally a quick 30 minutes of activity today.
$121.00 was raised by the 6th graders yesterday for the Pay To Play! Some students showed kindness by paying for their friends to play, too.
Our Scholastic Book Fair is coming soon and will transform the auditorium stage into our very own book store. There you will find hundreds of books from new and favorite authors, popular series, cool posters and school supplies, and fun for everyone! The Scholastic Book Fair will be here from February 21strd to February 24th.
If the weather is bad but schools aren’t closed, parents can make the decision to keep children home or pick them up early. If parents choose to keep their children home or pick them up early, the absence will be excused. Please contact the schools as soon as possible and let them know the reason for the absence so it can be recorded accurately.
