INSIDE: Moola's Spring Puzzle, Creative Craft & More!

Follow these simple to make the most of online learning:

  • Stick with your schedule! Set an alarm, wake up, get washed and dressed, eat a good breakfast, and be ready to start the day. Keep your routine going throughout the day.
  • Set up your space! Have a clean, quiet, organized area with your school supplies where you can stay focused on your work.
  • Virtual doesn't mean vacay! Online school is still school. Work hard and be on time.
  • Treat teachers right! Your teachers are working hard to help you through these changes so reward them with kindness and respect.
  • Stay active! After school, be sure to log off and head outdoors for some exercise, fresh air, and fun in the sun.
  • Keep in touch! Even if we can't see friends and family in person, we can still connect in other ways like a phone call or Zoom meeting.
  • Talk about it! No matter how you're feeling - good, bad or in-between - it's important to share that with someone you trust, and be there for friends and siblings when they need someone to listen.

Get Started On A Money Plan

A money plan is also called a budget. Making a budget is easy. Start by keeping track of what happens to your money. Every time you spend your money, write it down in a notebook. Then think about whether you bought things you really wanted or "just because." Chances are, those "just because" purchases mean you won't be able to buy a big item that you want like a video game or a new bike. But if you save that money, instead you will be able to buy that big item in the future. That's why a money plan can help you make the most of your money.

Just for Laughs

Question: Why are frogs so happy?

Answer: They eat whatever bugs them!

“Hope” is the thing with feathers – That perches in the soul – And sings the tune without the words – And never stops – at all
