PHYSICAL EDUCATION UPDATE - SECOND STEP CURRICULUM - 
SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL LEARNING (SEL)


This week's SEL focus was on Strengthening Friendships. Strong social skills are linked to a wide range of positive outcomes for students. Thinking about what makes a strong friendship and coming up with positive strategies to develop these friendships can help students deepen and strengthen positive peer relationships.


ARTS NIGHT - DECEMBER 12 - 5:00-7:00 p.m.

Please join us for a winter evening of incredible performances by Band, Orchestra, and Vocal Performance classes. Visit the Student Art Gallery, and enjoy the works of Art completed by our Visual Arts students. Over 200 works of original artwork will be on display! We hope to see all of you there!


LOST AND FOUND

The Lost and Found is, once again, overflowing with jackets, lunch boxes, books, and water bottles! The Lost and Found bins will be out in front of the Administration Building beginning Monday, December 9th. Please take a moment to check and see if any of your child's items are living here instead of with you. Unclaimed items will be donated to charity on Friday, December 20th.
