Parent Connect-"Promoting Family Wellness"

posted Oct 12, 2017, 3:17 PM by Web Admin

"Promoting Family Wellness" is the topic of the next Carroll County Parent Connect meeting, sponsored by Carroll County Public School Division (CCPSD). “We are very pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to our parents and staff. It will give education to parents on how to implement physical activity into everyday life and encourage a healthy lifestyle among our children," said CCPSD Licensed Professional Counselor, Denice Olinger.

According to The Association for Applied Sports Psychology, adopting physical activity habits early in life will increase the likelihood of children remaining physically active adults. Family physical activity can assist your child in learning life skills such as teamwork, leadership skills, and decision-making. Parents who display positive and healthier lifestyle choices influence the decisions and behaviors of their children. As reported by UC Davis Health, physically fit individuals are less likely to have heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and some types of cancer. People who exercise regularly have less feelings of depression and anxiety and feel a heightened sense of well-being. In general, families that incorporate exercise into their daily lives are happier, more relaxed and physically healthier.

The presenters will be Greg Hampton and Carrie Phipps with The Carroll Wellness Center. They will offer tips on how to eat smart, move more, and cope with stress.

The Carroll County Parent Connect evening program will be at Carroll County Middle School on Thursday, October 26, 2017. A free Aunt Bea's Barbeque meal will begin at 5:00 PM in the cafeteria. The program for parents, guardians, grandparents, and community members will begin at 6:00 PM. Reading For Life AmeriCorps members will be providing activities for children.

SOLAR ECLIPSE EVENT August 21, 2017

posted Aug 15, 2017, 12:01 PM by Jude Raffeinner

Dear Parents, Guardians and School Community:

On August 21, 2017, the United States will experience a total solar eclipse. While a solar eclipse is not uncommon, this one is significant because it is not only a total solar eclipse, meaning the moon will completely block the sun from the Earth, but it will also be visible from coast to coast in the continental U.S., calling it the Great American Eclipse. The last time a total eclipse crossed the U.S. was 99 years ago. The total phase of this solar eclipse is not visible in Carroll County, but it will be observed as a partial solar eclipse. Approximately 90% of the sun will be blocked by the moon, the making for a spectacular sight.

An eclipse is a striking phenomenon that we don’t want to miss, but it comes with some safety precautions. No one should look directly at the sun during a solar eclipse because the very bright light can burn the light-sensitive tissue in the back of your eye, called your retina. Without notice, permanent eye damage can happen in just a few seconds of looking at the sun during an eclipse. Since the retina does not have any pain fibers you can’t feel the burn; although, irreversible eye damage has occurred.

The eclipse will begin at 1:11 p.m., with the maximum eclipse reached at 2:39 p.m. and completed at 4:01 p.m. The duration of this event is 2 hours and 50 minutes. Due to this time frame and safety of our staff and children, we will extend the school day until 4:05 p.m. Buses will be released one hour later than their regular scheduled departure time. This schedule will include all students except for special transportation that will depart at 11:45 a.m.

This event will provide an excellent opportunity for our students to learn about a solar eclipse while practicing safety procedures. All students will have an opportunity to view the eclipse. Grades Kindergarten through second grade can view through live streaming such as, http://www.wdbj7.com/eclipse/, while third grade through high school will be able to view outside with protective solar eclipse glasses. Since this is a special event, parents or guardians will have the opportunity to “opt out” their child(ren) from outside viewing of the solar eclipse. Please refer to the included opt out form and return the form back to the school your child(ren) attends, if you wish to exclude your child(ren) from viewing this event on August 21, 2017. For additional information on solar eclipses, please refer to NASA at https://www.nasa.gov/.

Sincerely,

Shirley A. Perry, Ph.D.

Division Superintendent

Free and Reduced Lunch Reminder

Parents:

If any of the children in your household receive free or reduced lunch and breakfast (you have already received your approval letter), all children in the household should be approved. You must receive an approval letter for each child. If you have not received the approval letter for a sibling of the approved child, please contact Sharon Beasley at 276-730-3234 to ensure all children receive services.
