This week Freeland students and staff are celebrating Kindness Week! Thank you Ms. Castillo and 6th grade students for planning fun activities for us. Today students and staff at the Freeland Learning Center were all able to "Spread Kindness like Confetti" while they took part in color spirit day. Please remember Falcons, "In a world where you can be anything, be kind."

Students in Mrs. Lazarz's first grade class are studying how plants and animals use their structures to defend themselves from being eaten. Students used a clay ball to represent a living thing, and then used various materials to create structures to keep the comb, representing the predators teeth, from eating them. What a great way to explore some successful defense ideas!

After learning about owls this week, first graders in Mrs. Miller's first grade class dissected barn owl pellets to discover what they eat. They discovered several bones of their prey, including skulls, jaws, and the vertebrate of rodents.

If you have a Y5 or a Kindergarten student planning to start school in the fall please join us for the Y5/Kindergarten registration night. Our Y5/Kindergarten registration night will take place this Thursday, February 25th from 5:00 until 7:00 pm at the Freeland Learning Center. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at (989) 695-5721 or lopezi@freelandschools.net. We ask that only one parent attend and there is no need for your child to be present as you will be able to schedule a screening assessment for your child in June.

“This is awesome!” “I want to do that again!” These phrases were heard many times today around a part of the Freeland Learning Center parking lot which this weekend was turned into a Sensory Fitness Trail to be enjoyed by all of the students during recess as well as during physical education classes. Thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, what was just an idea became a reality for many happy students to enjoy. A huge thank you goes out to a Freeland parent, Mrs. Kendra Kundinger, who was instrumental in designing and organizing the project. Thank you also to Mrs. Michele Miller for all of your help and support with the project. This project could not have happened without the support of our amazing PTO who funded the project. We are also grateful for the Rohraff family for all of your dedication and hard work in getting the project completed. Finally, we want to send a huge thank you to the Freeland Middle School and High School student volunteers who gave up a large part of their weekend to help us paint the trail: Madison C. - Madelyn F. - Kate S. - Maia C. - and especially Molly O. Thank you for sharing your gift of time and talents with us and bringing a lot of joy to the Freeland Learning Center students. This project could not have happened without you! With many thanks, Izabella Lopez
