FRIDAY FOLDER citron campus february 11


Healthy Teeth
How many times should we brush our teeth? What are healthy foods and what are bad foods? You can ask any Citron student and they can now answer those questions thanks to Dr. Okawachi. The children were able to participate by using “real dentist instruments” in a simulated visit to the dentist which was the highlight of the event; the presentation was topped off with an animated film about Dudley the Dinosaur.

Message from Mrs. Douglas
When we think of the month of February we typically think “LOVE”. It is when we celebrate Valentine’s Day, exchange cards, give roses and candy and express our love for the special people in our lives. The relationship between a teacher and her students is a special kind of love. Teachers do what they do every day FOR THE LOVE OF IT.  They respect and love the uniqueness of each individual child and the rewards come back many fold. Children feel the love of a teacher in many different ways. They know that if you make a mistake, you are still loved. They know there is always someone to love them through their struggles. They understand it’s okay to have angry feelings. It does not make the love go away. Kindness, patience and tolerance are expressions of love. A teacher that inspires the desire to learn is giving a gift of love – love for nature, people of the world, fine art, books and reading. To encourage an adventurous spirit is to love a child enough so they believe in their own ability to chase any dream they have. Thanks to all the teachers who are drawn to the service of others and who posses the qualities that enable them to turn their love into action. 

100 Days!
The campus was buzzing with activity as students counted cherrios, stickers, pennies, and other treasures on Friday as they celebrated the 100th day in school. They counted by 1’s, 5’s, and 10’s till each student counted 100 different items.
