Walk/Bike to School Day
October 4, 2017

Looking for a healthy way to start the day? Jump-start your morning by walking or biking with your child to school. Take some time to promote health, safety and the environment by walking with your child to school - or just simply taking a walk together. When you get to school look for the table and sign the banner to get a free sticker to show you walked to school today. 

If you live too far from your child's school to walk, you can drive part of the distance, then park and walk the rest of the way. If you ride the bus meet us on the track before school and show your support. 
 
Walking to school is a great way to be a part of a global event and to promote health, to identify safer routes for walking and to improve air quality.  Walk for fitness and walk for fun!  See you on the track!

5 Star Wizard Hat Students
 
Congratulations to last week's 5 Star Wizard Hat students! They were recognized by their teachers for positive behavior. 
 
Last week's students include: Ezdeen Alghweel, Skylar Wills, Rafael Gutierrez, Declan Todd, Jude Zec, Dempsey Ruehrdanz, Freya Metz, Serenity Aceves, Karamia Castanon, Josie Strout, Miguel Hao, Linden Ernewein, Fox Long-Pearlmen, Alex Fabela, Neil Morris, Henry Thole, Oliver Samuels, Abdellah Benjelloun, Maria Elgadi, Harrison Marino, Libby Fallon, Kaiden Enloe, Oliver Colson, Amir Williams, Rodena Elgadi.   


 
Wizard Hats are given throughout UPark to celebrate students' good choices and positive behavior. We use a common vocabulary and teach Critical Thinking skills using the BrainWise curriculum.  Each week there is a random drawing of 2 students done by classroom teachers. These children are photographed and receive a token of our appreciation. 
*At the end of each month we will be donating all clothing in the lost and found and anything left in the halls (all clothing will go into our little red school house in our parking lot).
