Some Observations After Our First Few Days.......

The start of the school year can be very busy, tiring and a bit overwhelming.
 Everyone is doing quite well.  That said, we would like to share a couple of 
observations and thoughts to help the positive energy continue.

1- Eat a big breakfast.  It may be difficult but we do encourage you to get a
good meal into your children in the morning.  We eat lunch around 11:00 am.  
They are all quite hungry by the time we are sitting to eat.

2- Pack an extra water.  There is a water fountain down the hall from our classroom
but it is not conveniently located for a quick drink.  At times we are quite thirsty.  
If students had a water bottle from home in their back pack they could have a quick 
sip at the ready.

3- Rest, rest, rest - We are quite busy the entire time we are at school.  The children
 have done well thus far but we are noticing that many are tired (especially during the 
last hour).  Tuesday we had a couple friends ready to put  their heads down for a little 
rest!  The second half of the week will be a little more challenging for all  in terms of 
stamina and staying focused for a school day.  If possible, we recommend tucking
everyone into bed a little earlier the next few nights.

Note:  All these recommendations apply to the teachers as well.  We are trying to eat
 a healthy breakfast to give us the energy to work through the morning.  We are 
packing lots of water bottles to have on hand and we are certainly trying to get to bed early!
