Get Active with Halloween Fun

Halloween is in the air! I would like to share some fun and spooky exercises that are sure to get your family in shape this month! Cardio is so important to do every day. Exercise keeps your heart healthy, burns calories, and reduces stress. Only do what exercises are appropriate for your family. If you have health issues, consult your doctor before exercising.

These activities can be done every day in the month of October for some fun and spooky family bonding time!

Teacher Feature - Susan Moore

Susan Moore
Greathouse Shryock Elementary School

Susan Moore is going into her 29th year of teaching, five as a first-grade teacher at Greathouse Shryock Elementary School. Susan says from day one, that she has taught her class as if her own child was in the room learning. “I’m very hands on, very creative, very high energy. I think it’s a gift to be a teacher and it’s definitely an honor.”

Though Susan is recognized for her teaching abilities, what she gives back to the kids, the school, and the community makes her even more admirable. Aside from being a teacher and a mother, Susan spends time fundraising for the Children’s Hospital Foundation. This past year, Susan helped the school raise more than $54,000 for CHF. Susan understands those with medical needs since she had a kidney transplant 23 years ago. “My sister gave me the kidney.”

Make Your Conference Count

Two Sides of the Same Coin: Preparing for Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent teacher conferences happen about twice each school year. Although the focus of each conference should be the child/student, parents and teachers often come to the conferences with differing agendas. Parents want to know about how their child is performing in school, while teachers want to report what kind of student the child is. And although the conference is to be about one person, differing perspectives and agendas can make or break the meeting. In order for the conference to be successful, the adults must focus on the child.
