Happy New Year!! I hope you had a wonderful and restful winter break!   Below are the spelling words for this week.  Please remember to check your child’s agenda and sign it each night. Please give your child a spelling practice test on Thursday evening. 1. Center 2. Once 3. Scene 4. Police 5. Ounce 6. Certain 7. Bridge 8. Strange 9. Ginger 10. Arrange 11. Village 12. Difference 13. Introduce 14. Audience 15. Languages This week we began preparing for the APEX fun run!  Today, Tuesday, was the first day Johnny Tsunami came to our classroom to talk about an action of the day to help us become strong leaders.    We talked all about the 1st step in becoming a STRONG leader, which is to be selfless! This is not thinking less of ourselves (negative self talk) but instead, thinking of ourselves less often and thinking of others more! The Apex team informed my students that every one of them is extremely valuable and in order to recognize the value of others and show that we care about them, we must be selfless!                         If you haven’t already, please be sure to download the Apex Leadership Co app or login to www.myapexevent.com with your child’s “Access Code” which can be found on the front of their pledge kit.  Login and begin watching this year’s STRONG theme videos. These videos are used as a tool to reinforce each leadership lesson outside of the classroom. As a reminder, parent pick up has changed as contruction continues on our new gym.  Please have your child’s name and grade clearly written on a piece of paper displayed in your front window to help make the process run smoothly. Thank you!  Have a wonderful rest of your week!
