November 23 & 24
|November 27 -
The start of November is the start of families being busy with the holidays around the corner. It's important to try to keep as consistent a schedule as possible with your children regarding homework and bedtime. Please remember that we are all working together to make all possible elements for the best learning of your child.
Continue to communicate with your child's teacher if needed and please contact me if you have questions or concerns!
Thank you for being your child's first and forever teacher!! I'm very thankful for the Redbird staff and families!
The Walking Club
Sponsored by Mr. Morley, P.E. Teacher
The Walking Club comes together every Tuesday and Thursday before school for 30 minutes of friendly exercise.
Get your circulation moving- it's a good way to start the day: it's good for your brain and it's good for your heart!
The weather has cooled down now, thankfully, so it's really pleasant and more comfortable again to be stretching our legs, maybe pumping our arms, too. This will help our metabolism fire up to help digest the good foods we shall put in our bodies during the day.
We meet at the bright orange safety cone in front of the school at 7:30 AM. Wear your walking shoes and a smile, and why not bring a friend? Of course, parents are always invited, too! Make it a plan or just come as you can!
Message from the Cafeteria Manager, Mrs. Nelson:
Especially as we are heading into the Cold and Flu Season, I would like for the parents to remind their child(ren) of the importance of personal hygiene. Most important is to please remember to wash your hands after recess right before eating lunch and follow some food safety rules, so we may prevent food borne illness. These are good practices all year around.
Remember when you are at the Salad Bar to never put your head under the sneeze guard (the plastic shield). Do not put the utensils for the food into your mouth. Do not grab any food item with your bare hands. Once you touch an item in the Food Bar, this item becomes yours to eat: do not put it back. Look with your eyes, not with your hands.
A few preventative manners will help everyone to stay healthier.
Thank you for your help and support.

Hooray for Reading
By Lorie Jenkins, Reading Interventionist
Hooray for Reading!!
A wonderful thought!
With nouns and adverbs,
We've fought a lot!
Those propositional phrases,
Are the key.
To tell us where or when,
It shall be.
Short and long vowels,
Keeping them straight,
Can bring on a scowl.
Which one of six?
They can help you pronounce
A word, in a fix.
Reading is made of
So many, many parts!
But put them together,
And then you can start,
Enjoying a book,
That can take you afar.
Maybe it'll help you
To fix a car!
So Hooray for Reading,
The words and the sounds,
That make life a joy,
Where information abounds!!
Involve families, students, staff and the community
in working toward high academic achievement
and success for all, whatever it takes!
