2.  A big 'Thank You' to all the students that participated in the American Heart Association, Jump Rope for Heart and/or Hoops for Heart.  Five Points West contribution of $8,474.70 will significantly impact the fight against our nation's #1 and #3 killers, heart disease and stroke.  Families and schools are the two most critical links in providing the foundation for physical activity and nutrition.  By holding this event(s) at our school, it reinforces the important lifelong habits of eating right, exercise, and staying tobacco free.  Again, thank you!

3.  Fifth grade strings students are asked to have their violins at school every day the week of April 11.  They will need their instruments to practice for the fifth grade musical.  The children are welcome to leave the instruments in their classrooms.

4.  Welcome to springtime in Ohio where you are never sure what the weather and the temperature will be like.  As I am writing this it’s snowing outside!  I want to remind everyone that we go out for recess as long as it is not raining and the temperature is 25 degrees and warmer—wind chill included so please help your children dress for the likelihood of an outside recess when they get ready for school each day.
