FAMILY FITNESS WEEK AT SOUTH
Please join us for FAMILY FITNESS at South School on October 15th OR October 16th. We invite parents to attend their child's Physical Education class with them in an effort to provide an opportunity for family fun and good health. Hope to see you there!
It’s that time of year again! Please be mindful of the weather when sending your child to school in the morning. Students should be dressed appropriately for fall weather and have a coat or hooded sweatshirt. We appreciate your help in planning ahead, whatever the weather!
REMINDER FROM NURSE JOYCE
Kindergarten students and all new students must have a physical, eye exam and dental exam on file by OCTOBER 15th. Please contact Nurse Joyce with any questions.
GROW THROUGH MINDFULNESS
As you are aware, Glencoe 35 has recently partnered with the Grow Through Mindfulness program (GTM) to implement mindfulness exercises that are known to improve self-regulation, attention, kindness, and school climate. Beginning on October 1st, GTM will provide 20-minute sessions once-weekly for six weeks in all of our classrooms. As a component of this exciting new initiative, we will share Mindfulness Home Connections with all our families. These weekly emails will summarize classroom learnings and suggest child-friendly and family activities. By including children, parents and teachers we hope to nurture an environment of mindfulness at school and at home.
