    PTO Art Lesson

    If you would like more watercolor paper for future art projects, PTO will be at the school today during lunch distribution and you can pick some up. 


    Our Art Docents put together another art lesson for you.  This week the art you can make is based off of work from French painter, Claude Monet.  Monet was born: November 14, 1840, Rue Laffitte, Paris, France he died December 5, 1926, Giverny, France.  I hope you make some art this weekend!

    Counselor Corner

    Hello, Liberty Ridge Families! This week I wanted to share a little more about mindfulness. Mindfulness means maintaining present-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings,  sensations, or environment. Mindfulness helps us to let go of unwanted thoughts, decrease blood pressure, improve sleep, improve your attention span, and increase your emotional intelligence. It is possible to make any moment mindful by connecting with the smells, sounds, sights, tastes, and sensations around you. Here are some easy activities you can try!

    1. Blowing bubbles. Have your kids focus on taking in a deep, slow breath, and exhaling steadily to fill the bubble. Remember, if they try to blow too quickly, the bubbles will pop! Encourage them to pay close attention to the bubbles as they form, detach, and pop or float away.

    2. Pinwheels. Use the same tactics from blowing bubbles to encourage mindful attention on the pinwheels.

    3. Texture bag. Place several small, interestingly shaped or textured objects in a bag. Have each child reach in and touch an object, one at a time, and describe what they are touching. Make sure they don't take the object out of the bag, forcing them to use only their sense of touch to explore the object.

    4. Guided meditation. I especially like this option while we are currently trying to stay home as much as possible. There are scripts online you can follow, but I'd like to encourage you to do this with your kids. Calm.com has free resources for guided meditations so you can listen with your kids and practice this powerful skill together!

    Please check out my Counselor's Corner for more information on social/emotional learning or available community resources.  If your family is struggling in any way, please reach out and let's see what we can do to help. I am at LRE every Friday from 10 am- 12 pm out by the lunch line. Please consider stopping by for free lunch and smiles! We love any chance we get to see our Thunder Eagles:)

    Calling All 5th Grade Families

    Dear Thunder Eagle Families,

    Happy Friday!  Monday is the start of our staff appreciation weeks.  We decided to celebrate our staff for two weeks to show them how much we value all the work they have been doing during distance learning.  Please talk with your child about joining in and sending messages to staff throughout these two weeks.  During the first week we are asking students to celebrate their classroom teacher by emailing or posting messages to them on social media.  The second week we are asking students to recognize all of the other wonderful support staff in our school.  Below I have included the staff appreciation schedule as well as a list of classroom teachers and their email addresses.  Please consider sending an email to the teacher AND posting on social media so all can see!
