It appears Mr. Bestor may be inviting you to do something in today's UPDATED daily announcement video!

Perhaps he's encouraging you to enjoy some Chocolate Heath Crunch (today) or Caramel Peanut Butter Crunch (tomorrow) at Culver's???
National Big Wind Day
Observed each year in the United States on April 12th, National Big Wind Day commemorates the recording of the highest natural wind gust measured on the Earth’s surface. On the afternoon of April 12, 1934, the Mount Washington Observatory recorded winds at 231 miles per hour.

Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288 ft, and it is the most prominent mountain east of the Mississippi River.

Observers reported the wind gusts in 1934 from the Mount Washington Observatory. The record even held for several decades. In 1984, the observers returned to the observatory to celebrate the record-breaking wind’s 50th anniversary. Then in 1996, the big wind award from atop Mount Washington fell. A typhoon struck a small island off of Australia with wind gusts of 256 mph.
National Month - This Week
This week we are discussing Financial Literacy to raise awareness about the key components of Financial Literacy.

Practicalmoneyskills.com believes “one of the best things about having your own money is that you get to choose how to use it. Whether you get a weekly allowance or get paid for walking your neighbor’s dog, your first step in handling your money well is to think about short-term and long-term goals. Then make a plan to reach them.

It takes a bit of practice to master your money, just like it takes time to learn to ride a bike. But once you get the hang of it, you’ll be ready to tackle all sorts of money twists and turns.”

This week, with help from practicalmoneyskills.com we will quickly cover key components to Financial Literacy: earn, save, budget, spend, borrow, protect and give.

Let’s start with EARN.

Did you know? You can legally start working in the U.S. at the age of 14. “Earning is the first step in your journey to managing money wisely so that you can build a successful future.”

Let’s start with this idea. If you have some thought about what you may want to pursue as a career, consider getting a part-time job or summer internship in that field to “dip your toe in the water” to test if you really like the field.

Click here for more guidance on EARNing from practialmoneyskills.com.

If you find a job, stop in the front office and ask Mrs. Obermeier to help you get a work permit. Please bring the employer letter, a parent letter, a $10 fee, your birth certificate, and your social security card.
Holiday Recognition
Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim year, is a time of spiritual reflection that marks when Allah gave the first chapters of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad in 610.

This year, Ramadan is from April 12 to May 12.

During this holy month, Muslims will fast (abstaining from food and water) from dawn until dusk, dedicating this time to practicing patience and charity. It is also a time for prayer, self improvement, and family celebration.

You can wish people observing Ramadan a "Happy Ramadan" or "Ramadan Mubarak"!

MASKS
Please make sure you are bringing your own masks to school, and wearing them properly!
CLASSROOM CLEANING
Be sure to follow your classroom cleaning expectations to help us all stay as safe as possible!
REUSABLE WATER BOTTLES
Our bubblers are turned off, but the refill stations are still on. Remember to bring your reusable water bottles to stay hydrated!
IDs
Please remember to wear your student ID every day, and at all times while you are in school. It is very important that you use those IDs (examples: lunchroom, signing in and out, etc.) so we reduce any unnecessary contact.
HAND SANITIZER
Use hand sanitizer regularly! It's especially important to wash/sanitize before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
SOCIAL DISTANCING
Please stay 6 feet or more apart, and do NOT leave your Advisory to seek face-to-face help, instead, use google meet to work with your teachers.
Hold the delivered pickles, hold the lettuce, anything outside the school cafeteria or your home-prepared meal does upset us.

Parents/guardians and students are asked not to bring/deliver food or beverages from any outside commercially prepared eating establishments to school to be consumed by students during their regular mealtimes, or any school hours.

It is noted in the student handbook that food from area restaurants will not be accepted during the school day. In addition, in our August 14, 2020 campus welcome back letter, we mentioned “Special food deliveries will not be allowed during the school day. Special deliveries sent to the school will be sent back with the person delivering the food, and will not be accepted or delivered to the student. When a parent/guardian needs to drop off a delivery for a student, the parent/guardian must communicate that to the student. Students will not be called down to the office to pick up their delivery. They will be required to pick it up during passing time or during their lunch break. Students will be required to turn the product over to office staff for disposal upon entering the building and will then be sent to class.

Please remember that money can be added to student lunch accounts electronically via the Infinite Campus parent portal.
