October Community Service–Spare Change for Hurricane Sandy

 

After Halloween the students voted to have their collected spare change help the victims of Hurricane Sandy instead of buying books for Mitchell Park Library. We didn’t need Bon Jovi and Springsteen singing at the school to call attention to the project, because all the Palo Verde Students are rock stars full of generosity and caring for others in need!  They continued collecting until Thanksgiving break, and now all the money has been collected and totaled. Every penny counted whether students brought in a few cents, a dollar or if they saved up their allowance for donation. Palo Verde raised a total of $????? – Let your student use the numbers below to calculate the total, and see how quickly it all adds up!  Every penny, nickel, dime, quarter and bill, plus whatever the bank will give for the cool international coins-(German and French Euros, and coins from New Zealand, Great Brittan, India, China, Switzerland, and Singapore) will all be donated to the American Red Cross.

 

Kindergarteners (combined classes): $101.76

Room 4: $35.20

Room 5: $90.87 and $65 of that was in quarters

Room 6: $44.60 and $30 of that was in quarters

Room 7: $38.01 all in coins, and $23 was in quarters

Room 8: $20.15 all in coins and $5 was in pennies

Room 11: $17.78

Room w/ biscotti jar: $24.47

Room w/ pretzel jar: $38.28 all in coins

Room 15: $6.74

Room 16: $28.29 and $5 was in pennies

Room 17: $74.14 and $34 was in bills and $5 was in pennies

Room 18: $31.36

Room 19: $24.25

Room 20: $58.18 with $19 in quarters and a Twenty dollar bill (whoa!)

 

Special thank you goes to Jeanette Brosnan for counting and rolling the Kinder funds, and also to Room 17 students for counting, rolling and sorting their collection!

Family Movie Night after Winter Break! 

Mark your calendars!  Friday, January 11 will be Family Movie Night at Palo Verde.  Bring a floor blanket or a cozy pillow to the MP Room at 6:30pm that night.  This free, social event for Palo Verde families is sponsored by the PTA.

Notes From the Nurse-The FLU/COLD SEASON Is Here!!

The flu/cold season is upon us.  This means we should be vigilant about taking care of our loved ones and ourselves.  Remember that cold symptoms tend to be milder and flu symptoms more severe, including high temperature, severe aches and pains, extreme exhaustion and dry cough, nausea and vomiting.

A child should not be in school when he/she has:

  • Temperature greater than 100 degrees.  If a child has had a fever, he/she may not return to school until it has been normal for 24 hours (without taking medications to reduce fever)
  • Frequent coughing or sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • A new cold or generally feels bad
  • Extreme exhaustion
  • Vomiting during the night or diarrhea

Tips for Staying Healthy and Preventing Colds/Flu:

  • Get plenty of rest
  • WASH YOUR HANDS!!!! Use warm water and soap and wash for at least 10 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth or nose.
  • REMEMBER to cough/sneeze into your elbow, not your hand!! (Or cover with a tissue and then wash your hands)
  • Consult your Dr. for advice on receiving a flu shot.  It is not too late to get a flu shot this year

We believe that your fellow students and teachers will understand if you are ill and unable to attend school.  Check with the teacher regarding making up work according to school policy.

Thanks to everyone who is routinely checking the lost and found cart either physically in person, or online!  Also, a big thanks to everyone who is labeling their property and helping me return it to them!  It really makes a big difference!

December’s Asset of the Month is Asset #1: Family life provides high levels of love and support.

Family support refers to the ways that parents, siblings, and extended family show love, encouragement, and comfort to each other – families are the cornerstone of the social support system for youth.  The 2011 survey of Palo Alto youth reveals that while younger youth generally experience and are aware of family support, teenagers do so much less often:  89% of PAUSD elementary school students, 84% of our middle school students, and 66% of our high school students reported this asset, based on their responses to:
* I get along well with my parents
* My parents give me help and support when I need it.
* My parents often tell me they love me.
Because adolescents require greater autonomy and independence than younger children, effective family support for older youth takes a different form than in earlier years; however, their need for their families is still strong. Adults are challenged to find a balance between giving youth the love and support they need to navigate their adolescence and the independence they need to develop as individuals.
The following discussion topics can be used to open a dialogue with young people about the ways that they experience family support:
* Does your family provide support in a way that’s meaningful and easy for you to recognize? Why or why not?
* Do you and your parents treat each other with the same kindness and dignity that you’d expect from your friends?
* Does your family do things together on a regular basis? Are there any activities that you’d like to share (or be willing to share) with your family?
Winter break provides families with a chance to spend more time together.  We hope you enjoy your time together and let them know you love and support them.  For some resources and activities to try together, click on the December Asset resource kit link below.

Mileage Tracker Forms for November

 

Due to the rains last week, some of the envelopes for the mileage tracker forms hanging outside of the classrooms were damaged. If you would like to submit your child’s green commute miles record for November, please drop them in the bin marked ‘traffic safety’ in the school office. Weather permitting we will be recognizing our November green commuters at the Wednesday assembly on December 12. Our next mileage tracker forms will go out in the Friday folders in January. Thank you for green commuting!
