Next week is Every Kid Healthy™ Week. It is an annual observance created to celebrate school health and wellness achievements. The Steenrod Wellness Committee came up with some easy ways to celebrate for each day of the week. Wouldn't it be great if you added some extra activities at home? Here are some of the things we will be doing at Steenrod...
1. Mile on Monday - at recess
2. Dress as a vegetable (LOL - colors of healthy eating) on Tuesday
3. Workout Wear on Wednesday
4. Thirty on Thursday - thirty minutes of extra activity!
5. Hats on for Health on Friday (this is in line with Hat Day for Easter Seals)

PTA's Citizenship Committee will hold a fundraiser to benefit the Easter Seals Disabilities Services Center, National Road in Wheeling, on April 28, 2017. Everyone who enters our school building is invited to participate by wearing a hat in support of Easter Seals that day. We will collect cash donations from teachers and students in each homeroom. Visitors, volunteers, and other staff can drop off donations in the school office. We are suggesting a $1 donation; however, any donation to this worthy cause is welcome.

It is time to order the Fun Field Day - Rainbow Shirts for our students.... that means we will also be ordering them for volunteers. Please email Tracie Seivertson with your size so we can order. Shirts are $8.00. The price is a bit over cost and helps to pay for our students' shirts. Volunteers do not need a shirt to volunteer - simply a nice to have...
Did you know that there are some kids in Ohio County that don’t have enough food to eat on the weekends when they are not in school? One local organization is trying to combat this problem, and we want to help!
From April 20-27th we will be collecting items to be donated to the BackPack program for Ritchie Elementary. This program provides foods that children can eat without preparation. Here is a list of their most common needs:
* Slim Jims
* Cheeze-It Sandwich Crackers (Cheese on Cheese)
* Quaker Chewy Granola Bars
* Applesauce (Pouches only)
There will be a collection box in the front hall by the office for the children to put their donations. Thank you so much for your help. Together we can achieve an end to childhood hunger!
Class Pictures will be taken on April 19, 2017. Order forms are in the office if you would like to order one.
A few important banking dates to note.
We will have banking on April 20, 2017.
There will be no banking on April 27, 2017.
The final day for banking for the year will be May 4, 2017.
