Tasting Tuesday – May 8

  • Healthy Snacks – Send your child in with a new, healthy snack for class snack time (ex: cucumber slices, snap peas, carrots, apples, egg salad on whole wheat cracker, etc.)
  • Recess Fun – YMCA staff will be at Eagle on Tuesday, May 8 for each grade’s recess period for fun activities to get us moving.

Walking (or biking) Wednesday – May 9

  • Try walking or biking where you need to go today – Try your own two legs (or wheels) to get to and from school! Of course, safety is paramount so walk in a group with parents and friends. Wear a helmet when on a bike, skateboard, etc. If walking to school is not possible, take a walk after school to the store, the library or just around your neighborhood.

Thankful Thursday – May 10

  • Random Acts of Kindness – Work extra hard to perform random acts of kindness today!
  • Mini-Mediation Sessions – Some classes will participate in short meditation classes to learn how to breathe, focus and relax away school stress.

Fresh Air Friday – May 11

  • Enjoy the Outdoors – Get outside and enjoy some fresh air, anytime, before school, recess or after school!

This week is also teacher appreciation week! Please remember to appreciate all the hard work our teachers do every day!
