Move-it Monday – May 8


  • Healthy Steps – Walk, run or jog in our field along a course laid out by our PE Teacher Mrs. Young. She will tally each class’ total steps and map your mileage across the United States! All week in PE class.

Tasting Tuesday – May 9


  • 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.)
  • Pop-in Yoga Classes – Some classes will participate in 20 minute mini yoga and meditation classes to learn how to stretch, breathe, twist and relax away school stress.

Walking (or biking) Wednesday – May 10


  • 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 11


  • Random Acts of Kindness – Work extra hard to perform random acts of kindness today!
  • Pop-in Yoga Classes – Some classes will participate in 20 minute mini yoga and meditation classes to learn how to stretch, breathe, twist and relax away school stress.

Fresh Air Friday – May 12


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