School is just around the corner and we are planning and getting ready for the first day of school. Just a reminder that all students need to have clean tennis shoes for P.E. class. We would love for them to keep a clean pair in their locker. This helps ensure that students are prepared for P.E. Shoes do not have to be new, they just need to be clean! Thanks for helping your child with this. Do you have a pair that fits but are dirty, wash them up and bring them in! See you soon!
Mileage Club has come to an end once again. Congratulations to our top 3 runners!! Maverick in 3rd gr. Ms.VanderStels class ran 33 miles…Rogen in 2nd gr. Mrs. Basts class ran 32 miles and Gavin in Mrs. Basts class ran 31 miles…WOW!!! Everyone who was outside jogging during those extremely hot and humid days deserves a HUGE high 5 🙂 Everyone that ran/walked 13 miles or more did earn a prize and the 20 milers or more got a popsicle party!
Once again our GT families have risen to the occasion. You have all surprised us with your kind hearts and donations. The GT fam has raised $9,165.51 for the American Heart Association this year. All students enjoyed a day of jumping rope and learning how to use Chinese jump ropes, thanks to our amazing student teacher Ms. VanNoord. Check out the video of the kids “jumping the ring”, one of their FAVORITE JRFH activities. Thanks again to Ms. VanNoord for her twirling abilities!!!!
*please remember that all the other prizes will arrive in 3-4 weeks.
Please remember that JRFH envelopes are due next week Wednesday, Feb. 28. Online donations are due as well. On Feb. 28 we will be starting our jumping events in class. We will dedicate our class time to jumping! Thanks for you help with raising money for the American Heart Association.
