Smile- share your smile when you talk to people.  When you smile, people tend to smile back at you. It’s a very basic human reaction that all of us share!  How good are you at paying attention and understanding facial expressions? You can see if people like what you are saying or dislike it only if you pay attention to their face while you speak.   Being careful about your words and your facial expression makes you a successful person.

Joke for the day:  What does a snowman eat for breakfast?  Frosted Flakes!

WEDNESDAY 12/12 #4   

How do you speak nicely? Practice being careful with your words. Listen to others when they talk- don’t interrupt them when they are talking. Don’t yell- yelling makes you sound angry.

We have received a thank you letter from the Pewaukee Food Pantry and it reads - THANK YOU Horizon School - your large donation was very appreciated.  It is especially nice to have a wide variety of items so families have several choices of things to pick from. Almost everyone goes through difficult times at some point in their lives.  We are fortunate to live in a community where neighbors are about each other. There are about 200 families coming to the pantry each month to get food. It takes a lot of people working together to help feed a community.  Thank you all for caring and sharing!

Did you know that Veterans Day is fast approaching and the Horizon has a very special way of celebrating.  As a school community we love to honor the Veterans that are relatives or close friends of students here at Horizon and we plan to do that a little ahead of Veterans Day this year.  On Friday Nov. 9th we will have a ceremony and then some classroom sharing with Veterans who you would like to invite here. Parents should have received information in the teacher weeklies that have gone out and we have information posted on our website.  We would like to know ahead of time who is coming and so Friday November 2nd is our RSVP deadline. Have your parent send an email to Mrs. Farrow or your classroom teacher so we can plan a special day for our honored Veterans.

FRIDAY 10/12 #2

Did you remember to wear blue today in honor of World Arthritis day?  Here’s a quick peek at some very successful people who fought against this disease that could have made it easy to give up but they did not and they pushed themselves to do noteworthy things - Did you know that basketball player Shaquille O’Neal has osteoarthritis as does famous golfer Phil Mickelson?  A very funny comedian who used Physical comedy was Lucille Ball and she had arthritis. And someone who has made visits to us in the past, American Ninja Warrior Abel Gonzalez has told us how diet, exercise and good sleep has helped him battle his arthritis. So thank you to all who wore blue today to show they support those who struggle and succeed in beating Arthritis.!  If you want to further support the Arthritis Foundation, go to www.jbr.org/milwaukee to sign up for the Jingle Bell Run!

 

6th Grade Pirate News Crew meets today at 12:45pm in Mrs. Setter’s office.  Please bring your red pass with you.

So what is Arthritis that we have talked about for World Arthritis day?   It is a disease where the joints hurt because the cartilage between joints tends to wear away.  Sometimes the body attacks its own joints. Sometimes something like Lyme’s disease can cause it and sometimes crystals form in the joints if you do not hydrate enough (this is called gout).  Taking care of our body, eating healthy foods, getting exercise and sleeping enough can always help make us healthy. Don’t forget to wear blue on Friday to bring about awareness of World Arthritis day!

A reminder that the mile run will be held on Thursday, Friday and Monday.  The weather is going to cool down this week. Please come prepared for outdoor classes.

Due to rain in the forecast PE classes will be inside today.  Mr. Ebbole’s classes should return to Asa today.

TUESDAY 10/9 #4   

Did you know that roughly 300,000 kids in the US have arthritis?  It is a disease that affects over 50 million adults but it can start when you are young. Treating it right away is important and so in order to bring an awareness of what Arthritis is, this Friday October 12 has been designated as WORLD ARTHRITIS DAY and to support those who have it and to show you are aware, can everyone wear as much blue as possible on Friday?  More reminders this week but writing down in your assignment notebook that you want to wear BLUE on Friday will really help remind us all on Friday to join in to be aware.
