It's Teacher Appreciation Week!
National Field Day - Friday, May 8
So many of our end-of-year school traditions have been altered or have completely disappeared from plans this year due to recent Field Day! For many elementary students, field day is the highlight of their school year. But what’s a P.E. teacher to do when their students can’t be together? They adapt! Many Jeffco P.E. teachers have designed their own events and some are joining the  OPEN National Field Day  celebration this Friday, May 8. Jeffco has many schools participating! Reach out if you'd like to highlight these activities and we will connect you.

Here's a treat for you: check out  this video  Peiffer P.E. Teacher Holli Swanson created to help get her students pumped up for field day!
May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Jeffco's Focus is on Cultivating Resilience
This May, we are encouraging a shift in thinking of self-care as a luxury, and instead as a necessity to be woven into our everyday routines. As with frequent handwashing for personal hygiene and physical immunity, we need to continually engage in activities that enhance our resilience - or our psychological immunity - by cultivating connection, calm, and gratitude. Week one's theme is Cultivating Connection. Read more on our new  Jeffco Strengths family web page.
