How Emotions Affect Learning, Behaviors, and Relationships
I have GREAT news! The City Schools Art Teachers are hosting a community wide project on Saturday, March 19th. I have attached a flyer to this email. I would GREATLY APPRECIATE your help in handing these out to your students. Last year I actually had around 6 Harper students show up. I would love to see at least 15 to 20 this year! It is free for all children. They will have their face painted, create a project to take home, paint on a large mural, and more!
Please email with any questions. If you have kids, bring them and visit with me! I miss you guys!

THANK YOU WALMART!!
First Grade students in Faith Shiver's Gifted STEM class at Scott Elementary practice computer programming with a Sphero Robot. The robot and ipad mini were purchased with funds from a Walmart Community Grant Program. Students in Shiver's class learned about coding earlier this year through the hour of code initiative and will now practice with a Sphero robot. Shiver stated, "we appreciate Walmart and their belief in operating globally and giving back locally..."
