Core Value

Self-Control: the quality of being just, impartial, or fair


1. Think before I act.
2. Control my temper.
3. Respect others and their belongings.

● What are some healthy habits that can make you a stronger person?
● Athletes make a lot of sacrifices in order to reach their goals. Can you think of
ways athletes show self-control or self-discipline?

Content Update

Illuminating Intervention

We are so proud of the great work that students have done this year! Their
hard work and dedication was shown by the amazing progress that was made
on i-Ready and on the unit assessments in the intervention programs! We
look forward to finishing the year strong!
The intervention team was very busy with PARCC for most of the month of
May, but still pulled groups as much as possible. Since we were not be able to
see all of the groups as much as we normally do, please take a few extra
minutes to work with your child at home.
The GAL (Gifted and Advanced Learning) students have been working on
writing Crazy Creature Sagas for a writing contest. The creatures look very
cool and the sagas are shaping up nicely! We can’t wait to see the final
product. Congratulations to Taylor Walker for having her ABC Poem about
Animal Abuse chosen to be featured in CHARM Magazine!

As we wind down the year, it is time to culminate our year of health and wellness with 5
the Furman Fit Festival. The festival will be Saturday, June 1st from 10:00 AM until
12:00 PM. During the festival, students, families, and community members will run,
jog, or walk laps around the field. For each lap completed, participants will receive a
prize. After completing the laps, participants can enjoy snack to refuel. Prizes will be
awarded for the most laps completed in each age group. All participants will also
participate in a raffle. We hope to see you there!
Over the summer, take time to relax and continue to focus on health and wellness.
Drink plenty of water, especially when it is hot and humid outside. The recommended
water intake for children ages 5-8 is 40 oz. per day. Children ages 9 – 12 should drink
56 oz. per day, and adults (13 years +) should drink 64 oz. per day. The amount of
water needed increases when sweating or doing physical activities.
When possible, find time to sit less and move more. When stairs are an option, take
them. If it’s too hot outside, walk around your house or go to the mall. Jogging in
place or doing jumping jacks are a great way to get your heart pumping without
needing too much space. Have a great summer!
