This entry was posted in News on by .

Did you know that East Guernsey offers free breakfast to all students? There are at least three options for breakfast and we encourage students to take advantage of this free meal. Eating breakfast has been linked to

 

  • better attention/concentration
  • higher grades
  • healthier body weight

 

“According to the American Dietetic Association, children who eat breakfast perform better in the classroom and on the playground, with better concentration, problem-solving skills, and eye-hand coordination.”

Giving at the Holiday Season

This entry was posted in News on by .

The holidays are a great time to teach children compassion and empathy for others. It is easy for children to be excited to receive gifts, but how do we develop the same enthusiasm for giving? Here are some examples of how you can involve your child in the joy of giving.

  • Let your child shop for a few gifts for others using their own money
  • Do a holiday craft or bake cookies to give to neighbors or friends
  • Let your child wrap a few gifts themselves
  • Have your child make cards for others
  • Give your child the opportunity to present the gift to someone so they can see the joy it brings
  • Volunteer in a local soup kitchen or participate in Toys for Tots

This entry was posted in News on by .

On Monday, October 21st Buckeye Trail Elementary school hosted a Safety Fair in conjunction with its Red Ribbon week for October 17th-21st. The fair involved six local organizations which included: Old Washington VFD, Quaker City VFD, Antrim VFD, United Ambulance, Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office,and the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Students had the opportunity to stop by each group stationed in the gym and see demonstrations, talk to law enforcement personnel, and ask questions. Following the safety fair students proceeded to the football field to form a Red Ribbon. After the picture was taken everybody sat in the bleachers to watch a life flight helicopter from Air Evac land on the field. After the landing, each class had the opportunity to pass through the chopper. The student body then proceeded to pass through each law enforcement vehicle on the way back to the building. Red Ribbon week features a theme each day in conjunction with staying drug free. The students also participated in a slogan contest as well as a door decorating contest.
