We cannot thank you enough for the amazing support of the 5K. We had one of the most successful events ever with over 700 participants. Esther Robbins, Angie Salem, Erin Saltzman, Ann Hof, Rebecca Peluso and their team of amazing volunteers contributed countless hours to this very special event. I know the PTO will have a full list of all who need to be thanked in their weekly memo.
Special thanks to our room parents for their cooperation and collaboration with the beautiful raffle baskets. Elle Norton in Grade 1 won lunch with Mrs. Whitehead. So many families donated their resources, time and talents to support Nayatt School. The t-shirts for the 5K were made by Barrington Promotions, a former Nayatt parent. It was truly a community effort.
With this said, I hope as many volunteers as possible will make time for the Volunteer Breakfast on Wednesday, April 10th, at 9 AM. Mrs. DiMatteo, the Barrington Public Schools Volunteer Coordinator, organizes an amazing event because we are so grateful to our parent volunteers. We hope to see you there! More details below.
This week, we have Reading Week events with guest readers, an author visit, the Navy Band, and more. Please check out the information below.
During P.E. classes this week we will be finishing up our Kids Heart Challenge (Formerly Jump Rope for Heart). Students will participate in a variety of jumping and jump rope activities that were previously practiced during their regularly scheduled P.E. class. Stations will include jump rope tricks, hurdles, obstacle course, long/high jump, rest and heart rate monitoring stations. If there are any remaining envelopes or donations that you would like to make, they will be accepted at school and online until 4/12. At the start of April break, all paperwork and donations will be finalized and thank you gifts will be ordered. Thank you for all of your continued support in keeping this program such a success here at Nayatt School and keeping our kids hearts as healthy and strong as possible
After the spring recess, the BHS Chain Reaction Club will visit Nayatt School. The students and staff who participate in the Chain Reaction Club at BHS are focused on helping all students at BHS to feel included. They share this work across K-12 in April. The High School representatives will hold an assembly with the K-3 students and discuss strategies for helping our school to be a bully free place. This is a powerful experience across our district. We celebrate, A Day without Hate, on April 26th. The students are asked to wear white to show their school spirit and their commitment to peace in our schools. The building will be decorated with peace posters.
Have a great week!
