The big May news for us is that we are excited to demonstrate our learning on the annual California STAR Tests beginning Tuesday May 7th. Help us meet our 2013 goal of 850 API by making sure that each day your children get to bed on time, eat breakfast and don’t miss a day. Also, please make sure that they read at least 20-30 minutes each night and spend time discussing their thinking! Our student and parent wellness committees are going strong! Please mark your calendars for Open House on May 23rd. Please enjoy all of the great things going on at Billy Mitchell. Go Aviators! Steve McCray, Principal, Billy Mitchell Elementary May Nutrition Article: Celebrate National Physical Fitness and Sports Month with Child’s Play… May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. Have you played tag lately? Shot a few hoops? Jumped rope? Child’s play makes great physical activity for grown-ups, too. Even more important, it’s great family time and your chance to show that active living is healthful living at every age. Actually, child’s play teaches plenty! As kids climb, twist, jump and run, their bodies get stronger, more coordinated and more flexible. They learn how to cooperate and share with playmates. Active play also can teach, develop the body-mind connection and build self-confidence. Other benefits? Active kids may sleep better, learn a positive way to release stress and reduce their chance for overweight and type 2 diabetes. (Tip: Play along and you’ll get the same benefits; besides, it’s a fun way to wind down your day.) Fit child’s play into your family’s day. Enjoy a playground together. Equipment should be sturdy enough so you can swing, teeter-totter or slide, too. Play a pick-up game: basketball, softball or sidewalk tennis. Set aside play space where it’s okay and safe to tumble, jump, run and kick a ball.
