ACTIVE RECESS at CRESLANE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Creslane Elementary School is piloting a program with our third, fourth, and fifth graders called Active Recess. Active Recess is being used around the state to improve opportunities for students to increase their physical activity each day and improve their health and academic achievement. The program also has been found to improve the playground climate, bring together students of different skill levels, and coach children in how to develop interpersonal skills to deal with conflict. Teachers also have reported that the vigorous play during Active Recess improves student behavior and their attentiveness in the classroom.
The three goals of Active Recess are to:
- Engage ALL students in physical activity with various games and activity options
- Improve behavior through increased activity opportunities and increased adult support
- Build positive social and play organization around recess
We will be participating in this program each Tuesday and Thursday during lunch recess for the eight weeks. Active Recess, in conjunction with our switch to “Play, Then Eat” and the changes we have made in our cafeteria, is all part of our school-wide efforts to promote student wellness.
Good morning Creslane. Friday, October the 20th is a PBIS popcorn day!
Each bag of popcorn costs $0.50 and all of the money collected goes to support our PBIS program and monthly PBIS activities.
We have mailed home the Health Screening results for each student that includes BMI (height and weight) as well as dental screening results. If your child is referred for vision, you will get a separate letter in the mail. Please contact Paula in the Creslane office at 541-895-6141 if you have any questions.
Dear Creslane families,
Oregon Battle of the Books is beginning. This is a reading competition for grades 3-5. Students form teams of 4 and read from the list of 16 OBOB books, then compete against other teams in our school to answer questions about the books. Practice battles will be in January with final battles in early February. The team that performs the best will move on to the regional competition.
OBOB permission slips went home with students last week. If your child is interested in participating, we are extending the deadline for sign-ups to Monday October 16th. Please go over the information pamphlet and make sure that your child can commit to reading the books and attending team practice (most teams practice during the lunch/recess period but each coach determines their practice schedule). Permission slips need to be signed by a parent for your child to be placed on a team. Also, we are always looking for parents willing to coach teams so please mark if you are interested in coaching.
Please write the following information on a sheet of paper : Student name, grade, and teacher; parent phone number, email and signature; permission for photos to be taken of your child and potentially posted to the Creswell OBOB Facebook page; willingness to coach; names of other students they’d like to form a team with.
All permission slips are to be turned into the Creslane library.
Creslane OBOB team
