A HUGE thank you to all of the families who contributed gift cards to our Helping Hands Project!  We were able to help out about 20 families for the holidays!  Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity! 

 We wish everyone fun and connection this holiday season.  I reminded the students this morning on the announcements to spend time choosing healthy activities.  We talked about cooking with the family, playing outside, doing art projects, creating something and reading a great book!  Don’t forget that limits on screen time always bring better results!  Firstly,  putting limits on screen time helps kids brains not get addicted to it.  Secondly, keeping screen time as a privilege that they earn keeps parents in charge and allows for other great things to happen in your house.  Once I learned this as a parent, it made all the difference in our home!

 Have a restful and peaceful holiday!
