Hello to everyone! I hope that Spring Break has you feeling refreshed and ready to come back! This time of year is always so busy and exciting, especially at M.G. Ellis. Let’s start with the Heart Walk and Health Fair that we have every year at the beginning of March! This is an event that I (Cindy) along with my lovely committee put together at our school. We invite parents to come and do a 30 minute fun walk around our playground area, facilitated by our awesome P.E. teacher Mrs. Hamilton. Afterwards parents get to visit booths that give them lots of information about how to stay healthy by getting their weight and BMI, insurance, and local dentists offices just to name a few, a big thank you to Lynne our school nurse for her hard work in getting all of these wonderful people together. We had over 160 people in attendance this year! What a great turn out! I was sooo busy during all of it that I only got a few pictures.
Last week, wait the week before spring break haha, we talked about rainbows, St. Patrick’s Day and leprechauns. Sandra asked her little ones: “What would you do if you found a pot of gold?” They made this super cute anchor chart, put their ideas on a cloud then, they added a rainbow chain attached to a pot of gold. Her display looks AMAZING don’t you think?!
That was the week before…Spring Break!!! Sandra, left on an adventure to Thailand (can’t wait to hear all about it), while I stayed home. I feel like we’ve been running full speed since we came back from winter break. I made it a point to try to do something every day as a sort of soul cleansing. My spring break was awesome! I had brunch with family, loved on my nieces and nephew, had long and unrushed talks with friends, watched Zootopia (it was soooo good!) with my family and relaxed with my love and my fur baby as we binged on Netflix and Hulu.
J Have an amazing week back at school friends.
