Free or Low-Cost Family Activities in April:

Wanted: Volunteers to Help Teach Computer Science
Could you, or someone you know, help shape the future by applying your computer science skills in an Englewood High School classroom a few hours a week? We’ve partnered with TEALS, a program supported by Microsoft Philanthropies that recruits, mentors, and places passionate technology professionals into high school classrooms as volunteer instructors. These volunteers bring subject matter expertise and will join our classroom teacher in a team-teaching model. TEALS provides training for both volunteers and our teacher on working together to inspire and guide students in learning new concepts and applying them in creative problem solving.

Focus on Positive Behaviors
As parents, we look for teaching moments with our children. We want to correct bad behavior so children know what is unacceptable. While this is normal and natural, often our kids notice the things we put most of our attention to. If that is negative behavior, it's more likely that this behavior will be repeated.

Focusing and reinforcing positive behaviors can help shift the energy to the things our kids are getting right. When we take time to point out positive behaviors, not only does our focus shift, but our kids will want to repeat those behaviors as much as possible!

More tips on focusing on the positive can be found here.
Get Movin' Stop Snoozin'
Englewood Schools' Food & Nutrition Services wants to celebrate warmer weather and the Colorado Rockies home opener on April 6.

On the menu that day will be natural all-beef hot dogs, baked beans, fresh fruit, harvest bar and milk.

During lunch time, we'll also offer some fun activities, nutrition education and a chance to win prizes!
