Knock It Out!

Every quarter there are new clubs put in place for our students. Students are asked to submit their ideas and then have the opportunity to vote for the desired options. This quarter one of the more popular activities has been Knockout! Knockout is a simple basketball game all about making your shot count! It has been awesome to see our students progress week by week, whether it is making more baskets or offering encouraging words. Several older students have volunteered to help the kindergartners, by modeling excellent sportsmanship and assisting with rebounds. Our older students are serving as fantastic role models and aiding in instilling sportsmanship in our younger students. I look forward to seeing these skills and mindsets transfer to other aspects of our program!

Crayola Color Cycle

Each year our program here at Woodbrook Elementary takes part in various community service projects. For our second semester our students are taking part in donating to the Crayola Color Cycle Program! Sponsored by Crayola, this program brings recycling to the forefront, specifically the recycling of markers. There were several students interested in helping test out some of our markers to see the state of their use. The program takes used or dried out markers and recycles them. Many of the donated markers, highlighters, and dry erase markers are repurposed and reused for shingles, pavement, or even markers again! This is an important project due to the fact that our program uses a wide variety of markers, highlighters, and dry erase markers, and rather than tossing them in the trash we are giving back and recycling! It was great to see our students eager to learn more and help out with this project!

First, I want to say how thankful we are for our parents/guardians understanding and patience during this time. We are in a very unique situation, and your positivity and support for our team means so much! I also wanted to share that during this time we are continuing to pay our full- and part-time staff. I wanted to take this time to reiterate that ESE is closed through April 10 and School’s Out Spring Break Camp is canceled. Refunds/credits have been issued. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Site Supervisor, they will be able to assist you! Should anything change, we will be in contact with you. I also wanted to share some resources for you while you’re home with kiddos. First, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s parks and greenways are still open! Our parks and greenways are a great place for you and your family to get fresh air and stay active while practicing social distancing. We also have several educational resources on our website, carmelclayparks.com/coronavirus-information, in the “Kids at Home?” drop down, and plan to post fitness and nature education content regularly on our social media channels (@CarmelClayParks on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). While we greatly miss seeing your kiddo(s) every day, we know we are doing the right thing to keep our families and staff safe. We will see you soon!
