Parent Messages

 

Thank you – Many thanks to the families who donated items/money that enabled us to receive/purchase all items on our wish list!  We are excited to move into our new room….still waiting on the State Fire Marshal inspection.

 

Valentine’s Day – We will be celebrating Valentine’s on February 14th.  Students who want to bring in Valentine’s must do so for their entire class, AM should bring 20 and PM should bring 12 (brining for all 32 is fine as well). Please only write who they are from and do not address to specific students, just leave the “To” blank.

 

Birthday Team Needs – The Birthday Team that provides cupcakes and goodie bags for Primary and Elementary is asking for donations to fill the goodie bags for the monthly birthday celebrations. Any leftover party bags, toys, and other such fillers are welcome and appreciated. Please drop off any donations to the office and ask them to notify the FNB and we’ll make sure they get where they need to be.

Surgeon General Issues New Advisory About Effects Social Media Use Has on Youth Mental Health | HHS.gov

 

“Children are exposed to harmful content on social media, ranging from violent and sexual content, to bullying and harassment. And for too many children, social media use is compromising their sleep and valuable in-person time with family and friends. We are in the middle of a national youth mental health crisis, and I am concerned that social media is an important driver of that crisis – one that we must urgently address.”

-U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy
