Week of January 24th – January 28th

A Note from Ms. SicklerWinter Kids Vector Art, Icons, and Graphics for Free Download

With the snow falling, families have asked about our recess guidelines, included in our Harvest Handbook.  I have also included them below:

It is important that students go outside for recess.  Fresh air and an opportunity for exercise and unstructured play complement curriculum and daily activities.  Be sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather conditions.  When the weather is extremely cold, we refer to current temperature and wind chill factor.  Students will go outside for recess if the temperature is 10 degrees F or above including wind chill.

Did You Know?

Did you know that Harvest has a Girls on the Run team?  Girls on the Run is excited to bring this program to Harvest for another great year.  The program has been modified to accommodate COVID recommendations for 2021.  We are in need of coaches!  You don’t have to be a runnerjust enthusiastic about building confidence in our 3rd-5th grade girls!  Girls on the Run provides all of the materials and training – we just need a few energetic people to deliver this great program.

Girls on the Run is an 8 week program for girls in grades 3rd through 5th that combines training for a non-competitive 5k event with a dynamic life skills curriculum. Twice weekly lessons and interactive activities are led by volunteer coaches who create a positive and safe environment for girls to learn about themselves, connect with their peers and contribute to the community. The program culminates in a non-competitive, celebratory 5k event (local to each site for 2021) that allows the girls a chance to shine with an overwhelming sense of accomplishment! Participant registration will open February 22.

No prior experience necessary- we provide the training, supplies, support and inspiration! Contact info@girlsontherunsemi.org or site liaison Joyce Mueller (joycemueller@gmail.com / 734-972-7389) for more information.
