We had noteworthy (pun intended) evening as our 5th grade musicians picked out their new instruments for the school year and hopefully for a lifetime. Did you know science has shown that music training can change brain structure and function for the better? It also improves long-term memory and can lead to better brain development for those who start at a younger age (Inc. Incorporated: www.inc.com)

We started Second Step lessons this week! Elementary students get to learn social emotional and learning skills through whole group counseling lessons every week. This week some of the primary groups read the book, “The Day You Begin,” which celebrates our differences and similarities, as well as recognizes some of the struggles we have at school. Learning to be our own brave selves helps us be proud of who we are. All groups were taught the role of the school counselor and how to request to meet with the counselor when needed.
