St. Joe’s Mindfulness Presentation Date: Friday, September 20 – Let’s Take Two is a program that aims to grow children’s emotional intelligence. We review brain science basics to help children understand how their thoughts and feelings develop and distract. Though normal and helpful, feelings can be hard to understand and even harder to control. We practice two minutes of mindful activities to help promote self-control and provide tools for children to practice mindful minutes at home.
Last week, we learned about 4 different types of clouds and how to predict storms. This week, we will be become weather watchers during science. New spelling words are coming home today and the test will be on Friday. Have a super week!

School is right around the corner. It’s not too early to start getting ready. You and your family may be eligible under a federal program for Child Nutrition: https://www.fns.usda.gov/cnp/fr-032019
Research has shown that good nutrition has a positive impact on a child’s ability to focus and learn. It is important that we provide a nurturing environment for each child, so that individual success as a student can be maximized. We would encourage you to review the links below and submit an application. Even kindergarten students can qualify for meals; which is certainly helpful if you plan to send them to breakfast or for the days when they have a chance to eat lunch at school with the older students. Please contact Brian Malek for more details. All information is confidential. Many families are unaware that they qualify for this meal assistance program.
