Word of the Week: CLASSIFY: Classify is to arrange into categories based on similarities.
Health Tip: Upon the advice of many of you I downloaded the app Run Keeper. I used it this weekend and loved it. The app tracks your distance, time spent running, and average pace. I could see this app being utilized easily in PE on students' personal devices. Students could track their mile runs and it could help pace them to improve their time.
Target and $$$$ for our school: This year, Target will give money to schools all over the country for one simple act: a vote. Our school needs just 25 votes to earn a $25 donation from Target. But that's only the beginning. For each additional vote, our school will get $1 more. So please remember that, although the gesture is small, the rewards are potentially huge. Go to GiveWith.Target.com to vote for Crystal Middle School once a week through September 21st or until Target has given away all $5 million. And please forward this email to your friends. Vote and see rules at GiveWith.Target.com.
