Museum Memo: 10/17

MRHE MUSEUM MEMO

October 17, 2021

Hello!

 

It was such a fun week of SPIRIT at MRHE! There is a noticeable energy in the building, of students looking for ways to practice kindness within their community.

 

This week, we will continue with our morning circles, centered on quotes that our students chose. We also have some fun kindness photo booth "props" that our students created--which will bring some fun to lunch and recess this week.

 

As a reminder, students do not have school on Friday, October 22nd. Our staff will be engaged in professional learning that day. ?

News from Health and PE

 

During our first Health lessons of the year, students learned about the ‘3 Daily Health Habits’ to follow in order to help our minds and bodies work their best; making nutritious food choices (and drinking plenty of water), getting 8+ hours of good sleep, and being physically active for at least 60 minutes a day. Students even set goals for how they can be sure to follow these daily habits. We plan on having them revisit their goals periodically throughout the year to check their progress, reflect, and revise as needed.  

 

While we are seeing many students select nutritious foods for lunch and snack, we are also seeing a large number of students bring in foods that are not. Nutritious foods give us the brainpower to help us be alert, focus, think deeply, make good decisions and regulate emotions, which are all skills necessary for a successful day at MRHE. Unfortunately, we are seeing a lot of cookies, candy, and other sweets making up a large portion of lunches and snacks for some students, which has the opposite effects.

 

Please help your child select a well-balanced and nutritious lunch and snack so they can put forth their best effort on their work and interactions during the school day. See the model above that you can use together for lunch & snack planning.

 

We will continue to stress the importance of making nutritious food choices at school. Please help us make the connection at home. We are here to support you any way we can!

PTO UPDATE

?

  • Tom Evans Update -- A HUGE "Thank you!" to everyone who placed orders for the fall fundraiser. We raised close to $5,000 in profit for our PTO, all of which goes into supporting our students and teachers! Purchased items will be delivered to school the week of Nov. 8 -- Parent-Teacher Conference week. Look for more information about order pickup here!

 

  • Scholastic Book Fair -- We've got some wonderful new volunteers, but we will still need plenty of hands for setup and sales during the week of Nov. 8. Continue to look here or on Facebook for more information about how to volunteer. Email Stacy Dick (stacydx@hotmail.com) for more information or if you'd like to help now!!

 

  • Fall Parties -- We've got some fun, exciting ideas in the works for Fall Parties, and we're hoping to take the festivities outdoors! If we're able to bring these ideas to life, we may need a little extra financial support so we stay in the budget. Check back here for updates on party plans next week...

?

  • Coming up -- Our next Restaurant Night will be with DQ on Wed., Oct. 27. And, the next Open PTO Meeting is scheduled for Wed., Nov. 3.

Hello!

 

Please have your child(ren) help us decide which day Dr. Jamison will join in our Spirit Week fun by voting here. I sent this link to students' email addresses last week, but if they didn't have a chance to vote yet, please encourage them to share their choice! I'll have to share the winner with Dr. Jamison tonight. It should be a great week as we continue our focus on Kin

MRHE MUSEUM MEMO October 3, 2021

MRHE MUSEUM MEMO

October 3, 2021

Hello!

 

We are looking forward to our first full week of October, which is also Bullying Prevention month. At MRHE, we are instead putting our energy and focus on KINDNESS. Each day, our students will engage in classroom discussions about the power of kindness on our school community-how we take care of ourselves, how we take care of each other, and how we take care of our spaces. Each homeroom will capture their shared message of kindness and decorate their doors for a fun contest as well! More to come each week!

 

As I hope you see on your family calendar, this Tuesday, October 5th is our next early release day and students are dismissed at 12:50pm. With a revision to our schedule, students WILL have time for lunch (thank you for the feedback), and you can send a sack lunch or students can get one from school.

 

For those of you who drop off at arrival or bus stops, or pick up at dismissal, please turn your vehicles off while waiting for more than a minute. The fumes that come from vehicles during idling are especially harmful to our air, but to the lungs of our children and the adults helping at arrival and dismissal. Let's all do our part!

 

Don't forget about school pictures on Friday, October 8th!
