Read Across America Spirit Week

Behavior on Playground – Our Dragons are amazing and phenomenal. But there is always room for improvement. We need your assistance with sending a message to your kids about making positive choices on the playground. This includes but is not limited to keeping hands to self, being in locations that aren’t supervised, bringing toys and other inappropriate items from home, and being kind to one another. Ideally, I would like to hire additional staff to help with supervision but the budget does not allow it. Please remind your Dragons about making positive choices and following school rules. 

Volunteers to Lead Recess Clubs – One of the most difficult times for kids is unstructured time. This is JUST AN IDEA. I’d like to create small structured clubs to be run by mostly parents during lunch. For example, board games club, Pokemon club, chess club, chalk club, hula hoop club, and jump rope club. The goal is to give kids who struggle with unstructured time an opportunity to participate in a structured activity that is managed and supervised by an adult. You wouldn’t need to be an expert. You would just need to be willing to supervise a small group of kids. Like I said this is just an idea that I would like to see if there is any interest and willing volunteers. Any volunteer would need to be fingerprinted and cleared through the district. If you are interested please complete this Google Form
