Eagles in Action
Kindergarten Eagles in Action
Kindergarten is supporting Heifer International Sustainable Farming as their Eagles in Action project this month. 

At Heifer International, we believe that caring for the Earth is vital to ending hunger and poverty, whether it's through reforestation, organic gardening or adoption of fuels that reduce the ill effects to the environment. Help families care for their environment with your sustainable gift.
Your offerings will help to purchase garden and harvest baskets. A Bountiful Harvest Gift can help lift a family out of a life of hunger and poverty. With the training provided by Heifer International, families who previously did not have enough to eat will have a steady supply of food, and even be able to sell the surpluses. With that income, they will finally be able to send their children to school, afford medicine and have a chance at a more secure future.  
We congratulate the following students for earning Accelerated Reader Certificates:

Ready 1: Emma Gutierrez, Diego Santiago, Alex Toledano
Ready 2: Eva Borges, Grace Camren, Holly Hemminger,
Katie Wozniak
Rising 3: Jaxson Garbarz
Super 1: Audrey Rodriguez

Keep up the good work!

Are you watching your kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs
and a six-second attention span?

Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.

Come view Screenagers as a family, children ages 10 and up are encouraged to attend. Following the screening, a social worker will lead a group discussion and answer questions from the audience.
