Quarter 3 week 8: This was a short week but it was full of learning and fun. Mrs. Jeppson was recognized in the paper for her Ben's Bell award.

We had a wonderful variety of two, to, too, toucan and twinning on 2/22/22. We got to come together to watch the Rodeo program. This has always been a favorite of mine to see all the hats, boots and dancing.

This weekend you might travel, go to the rodeo or just relax at home. Treasure that time with loved ones, take pictures, give hugs, make memories and practice some math.

See you on Monday for our Love of Reading and Spirit Week.

- Mr. Moore

Every winter the cold dry air provides cool air for our lungs, and stimulating energy to keep our bodies warm.
Your body loses moisture all day, every day, through respiration, perspiration, urination, and bodily function, regardless of the temperature outside. Of course, temperature can affect the rate at which you lose water. Other factors – such as activity level, diet, and your health – also affect how quickly your body loses moisture. I challenge everyone to drink more water!
  • Keep a gallon of water at your work area
  • Set an alarm to drink some water every half hour
  • Have water by your bedside
  • Drink before…. Make a rule for yourself. Each time you have your meals, have a glass of water before you take your first bite
  • Add fruit or vegetables to your water, cucumber and water is my favorite!
Not only will you feel hydrated, healthy and proud of yourself, you set an example for others.
Now saddle up Cowboys and Cowgirls and drink more water
Have a safe, hydrated and healthy Rodeo Break!
