MindUP Monthly Focus
Taking Mindful Action in the World
This month, Marysville students are taking mindful action in the world. Each classroom has identified a need in the community and in response they have designed a mindful service project. These projects are a chance for students to extend acts of kindness into the world around them. Acts of kindness have an intrinsic emotional reward. When we see that we have helped someone else we increase our own sense of happiness, belonging and compassion. Through this work, students begin to understand the important role we each have to play in making our own lives and our communities healthy, happy, and safe. Enjoy some videos of our projects.

News from the Principal
You have probably heard that we are doing a new program this year entitled, MindUP!
Here is a little blurb from their website:
MindUP™ is a research-based training program for educators and children. This program is composed of 15 lessons based in neuroscience. Students learn to self-regulate behavior and mindfully engage in focused concentration required for academic success. MindUP™ lessons align with all state standards including Common Core and support improved academic performance while enhancing perspective taking, empathy and kindness as well as fostering complex problem solving skills.
In a nutshell, we are teaching students about the brain and how to be mindful and fully present to the task at hand. Given the multitasking nature of our world today, we are finding that teaching them to be mindfully focused on one thing helps them calm their brain, and therefore learn better.
Each class begins the day with 15 minutes of MindUP time. During this time you may see the lights down, soft music playing, the teacher at the door greeting the students. The students quickly come in, and will begin some sort of lesson in line with MindUp. At 9:00, the time closes often with Chime Time. Chime Time is a ringing of the chime where students close their eyes, relax their brain and get ready to learn.
We would like to involve you in this process. We are having a free parent training on February 18th at 6:00 pm. Please save the date. More information to come.
In the meantime, feel free to speak with the office or your teacher about this if you have any questions.
If you are interested in volunteering or would like to become more involved you can join the MarysvilleFamilyClub! There is no cost to join, and we meet on the first Friday of every month (with the exception of January). If you have any questions please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org feel free to stop by one of our monthly meetings held in the cafeteria or library just after drop off on: Sept 4, Oct 2, Nov 6, Dec 4, Jan 8, Feb 5, Mar 4, Apr 1, May 6, and June 3. Popcorn Fridays will happen again this year on the same dates as Family Club meetings. Don’t forget to bring your dollar!
***Also don't forget to save your BOX TOPS, each classroom will collect them throughout the year. Please bring them in when you get a chance. More information will come.
We are collect Box Tops and Labels for Education for our school. Please take a few minutes to see if you have any and watch for them on products you buy. Tell your family and friends, this will be an ongoing collection throughout the year. We are hoping to use these resources to help supplement the Arts program at the school.
The PPS Successful Schools Survey showed parents, students and school staff are concerned about bullying, and now students from Rieke to Roseway Heights are working to bring kindness to their classrooms.
