Silver Beach News for 4.20.17

Dear Families,
Last Friday, we had our Habit 6: Synergize assembly.  This assembly was written and directed by Sydney Fuller and Carli Kiesau (2nd grade) and Eva Smith and Madison Nathanson (4th grade).  For the first time, a “Student Spotlight” component was added and highlighted fifth grade artist, Thad Speyer. Linked here are the
PowerPoint  and video.  Ask your favorite student what it means to “Synergize.”
Have a great week,
Nicole

Futsal: We are now inviting 2nd-5th grade students to participate in our Futsal After-School Program! Futsal is a variation of soccer played on a hard court surface against two teams of five players each. The ball is smaller with less bounce than a regulation soccer ball. The game focuses on creativity, skill and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces. Classes start this week! Registration can be found here: http://www.whatcomymca.org/futsal.html

• If you need to pick your child up early for any reason other than illness or injury, so as not to interrupt quality instruction time by the teacher, please allow yourself enough time to come to the classroom or other location where he/she is, and help him/her get packed up and ready to go.
