Thank You to the 7th Graders

A huge shout out to RJ, Conor, Kevin, Timmy, Dylan, and James for staying after school today to help clear out the ice and snow from the courtyard. They all worked non-stop the entire time we were out there. It would have taken me twice the amount of time without your help. Thank you very much!

4th-5th Grades: This is REACTION TIME week! As we move and navigate the world in front of us, challenges and obstacles will jump out at us, and reaction time helps us move safely around and over those obstacles. Emotional reaction time works in the same way that physical reaction time does. We’re moving smoothly along, some sort of stress jumps out at us, we quickly regulate our emotions back to positive optimism in order to make the best of the situation.

4th-5th Grades: This is POWER week! Most people associate power with pure strength, but your focus on good form and efficient movement can have a big impact on the power you can generate. The same holds true with our emotional power. Self-awareness and an understanding of different emotions will help you channel your energy and increase your emotional power. Life’s challenges will require us to do some heavy lifting. Body awareness and a focus on form will help you improve your physical power. Emotional awareness and a focus on attitude choices will help you improve your emotional power. You are powerful.

4th-5th: Skill-Related Challenges (Coordination) – This is COORDINATION week! Yes, you can develop and improve your coordination with practice. It’s important to be able to combine our movements for a focused purpose and it’s equally important to be able to coordinate our emotions with the feelings of others in order to provide support. Just like different parts of our body work together to get tasks done. People have to be able to work together to achieve common goals. Coordination is the key. – https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1JYvOCwMijFNqCISRiU0fRPkEx25LBb8u?usp=sharing
