Dear Families,

In anticipation of Halloween on Monday, students are feeling very excited and enthusiastic!  I'm already hearing about the unique costumes your child will be wearing!  If you would like to send me a picture of your child in his/her costume, please do so via my e-mail: and I can include it in next week's post!

Healthy Kids Community Challenge:
As shared in last week's post, we celebrated "Bring Your Water to School Day" on Tuesday.  All students actively participated and the ones who may not have had a water bottle were provided with one from Mr. Comish in our office.  Check us out!

Every Day 5, I spend period 5 teaching Health.  Since our community challenge fell on this day, our learning focus was on the importance of drinking water.  Below I have shared the Ted Talk video that we watched.
Students were then challenged to create a poster to try to persuade their audience to drink water everyday!  We have an excellent start on these and will continue to work on them.  Here's a sneak peak of some well on their way :)

Tumble Books Online Reading:
It is important to read everyday!  To help encourage this, I would like to share with families our Tumblebook Premium and Tumblebook Cloud 2016-2017 Subscription Login Info.  These are excellent resources to our children reading materials which are highly engaging such as graphic novels, old classics, non-fiction, etc.!  Visit the site over the weekend to get familiar.  Enjoy reading everyday, boys and girls!
