Wellness Month - Mindfulness Day Five

*video will not display in email - click here to view.

It's our last day of mindfulness. Have you learned anything from these exercises? Do you think you will continue to use the tools you have learned? 

On Friday, we did a mindful taste test with some City Card winners at lunch. Students had a chance to experience natural vs. artificial flavors. Students were able to taste a piece of fruit along with a "fruit snack" flavored to be like the fruit they tried. Nearly all students preferred the actual fruit to the artificially flavored snack. 


Beginning violins and cello have lessons this afternoon.

Jr. Band lessons for flute, sax, trumpet, trombone, and clarinet will be today. The clarinet lesson will be for all clarinets at 11.

Jr. Band will be rehearsing tomorrow. Please do not forget your instrument.

On Friday, the BFA Fine Arts performing groups will be giving an assembly at City School, in the big gym at 1:15 for the 4-6 teams and the 7-8 teams. Many alumni from City School will be performing for our students.
