Mystery Reader

Ozzy's mom was our mystery reader this week.  The students enjoyed the story The Book with No Pictures. It was so fun having her read to us!

Star of the Week!



A poster and a directions sheet will be sent home with your child the Friday before they are Star of the Week.  Please add pictures and answer the questions on the poster and return to school on Monday.

Why our children are less patient, more lonely and more entitled than generations before? ? By Becky Mansfield

10. Teach by Example. 
If you want your child to change, you must first make a change.   Show your children where your priorities lie.  Family, your spouse, etc… act the way that you want your child to act and they will quickly follow your lead.  Let your child see you reading a book, washing dishes, making dinner, having conversations where you sit and look the person in the eye. Demonstrate kindness, consistency, hard-work.


Being a parent is the hardest, most important job we could ever have.   We only have 18 years to instill the qualities to last them a lifetime.    I’ve seen so many families turn their lives around and reboot their families.  I’ve seen so many children reengaged with the things that matter just by incorporating these things.  It matters and you are the key

Can we run a marathon?

I have challenged the kids to run the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles)!  As a fun fitness activity, the class will be running a few laps each week and I will keep track of their distance.  We are hoping to complete a marathon by the end of the year!
