Eagle Events
Eagle Dad's Day
Calling all our awesome Selwyn Dads! On Friday, April 26 we will be holding our LAST Eagle Dad's Volunteer Day for the year. Have an outstanding presence at Selwyn by helping with morning carpool, serving as lunchroom monitors and even painting the basketball court . We have added some morning spots to help with some much needed campus clean-up tasks to get ready for our campus beautification event the following day. Please note this is the day of the 1st grade Character Education Assembly
.
We also ask that you check your child’s class calendar to see if there is a need to help a special area teacher on that day for your child’s class. Sign-up to come join in the fun!!

Please contact Michele Mangan with any questions.

Gearing up for MakerSpace
We Need Legos!
Don’t know what to do with all those lego pieces and sets taking up space in your house? We are collecting LEGOS of all sizes for our MakerSpace. Collection bins will be in the rotunda throughout the month of April.
Health and Wellness Tip

How much physical activity is your child getting each day? Warmer weather is right around the corner, which is great time to get your children MOVING! If you need some ideas of ways to keep them active, challenge them to do a “Move Challenge” where they swap screen time for move time. Ideas include standing up to do homework, playing a family game outside like kick the can, go for a bike ride with a friend, or walk backwards around the block. Use the attached link for a printout used to track progress.
