Happy National Chocolate Chip Day OES! Do you like chocolate chips? What is your favorite kind of chocolate chip? Chocolate chips are usually put into cookies to make chocolate chip cookies. Don’t always eat unhealthy, try eating something healthy like milk and cookies. A giant shout out to Caleb in 6V for showing responsibility. Great job Caleb!! The Choir meets today at lunch recess. Those students in grades 4 and 5 interested in joining the golf team, please meet in Miss Welsh's classroom during lunch recess today. Again, any grades 4-5 students interested in joining the golf team, please meet in Miss Welsh's room across from the gym during lunch recess. See you there! Don't forget our next spirit day is dress like a twin day! You can choose one person or a group of people to dress the exact same as that day! Let's see your creativity OES. This day will be May 30th! There is a drama rehearsal for scene 4 at noon today at a full cast and stage crew today after school. Write a bus note. The last few weeks we have been focusing on our mental health. Remember, that at the Canadian Mental Health Association, they found that, while feeling well means different things to different people, some things might actually apply to all of us. In order to thrive, we all need a good sense of self, and we all need purpose, contribution, hope, resilience and belonging. Everyone can work on developing a good sense of self, finding a daily purpose, contributing to community and others, feeling hope, battling through tough times and finding a sense of belonging with others. Focus on one thing to work on every day OES and let's #GETLOUD about our positive mental health! Speaking of positive mental health, did you know dancing is so important for your mind and body? So because of this and because it is a long weekend for everyone, let's GET UP AND MOVE! Come on OES, get into the hallways, get out of your classrooms and get up off of your seats. Let's MOVE TOGETHER and DANCE for our mental health.
