Greetings from Mrs. Brown and Ms Batten
Welcome to the fourth quarter and final grading period of the 2012-2103 school year. Once the weather decides to accept the fact that it is SPRING, our students will be doing more activities outdoors. Now, more than ever, we want our students to continue to focus and work hard down the STREEEETCH!
At Barcroft, physical activity, outside of school, is one of the things we stress on a continuous basis with our students. Parents, we encourage you to seek out creative ways to help reinforce the skills we are teaching in Physical Education during your child's leisure time. When children participate in extracurricular activities, they will learn to embrace the idea that being fit can be a fun, rewarding life-long experience. Eating healthy and getting plenty of rest are important too. Nine hours or more of sleep each night is a necessary component to your child's overall health and well being. Getting proper rest will help increase your child's ability to focus in class, and get better grades in school.
If you have questions, comments, or concerns, regarding your child's progress, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (M-F) or email@example.com (M,T,TH,F). Our website is updated periodically with photos and upcoming events/activities.
