Hey Bancroft! This Wednesday, May 13, Miss Williams is excited to bring Mindfulness Club virtual! Mindfulness Club is for any student, in any grade, regardless of if you’ve ever participated in Mindfulness Club at Bancroft. Join Miss Williams on Wednesdays at 10:30 for some breathing and minutes of calm. If you are planning on attending, try to find a quiet space in your home where you can sit without distractions. We look forward to joining you for some at-home Zen!
Virtual 24 Club
Hello! Mrs. Smith will be hosting a virtual 24 club on Fridays, starting 5/15, at 2pm. Any 3rd, 4th, or 5th grader is welcome to come and play. No prior 24 game experience is needed. All are welcome! We will be playing in groups on zoom. No supplies are needed to play the game, but you are welcome to bring paper or a whiteboard to help solve the cards. I hope to see you there!

Online Learning Opportunities List!
While students are not in school right now, we are hopeful that each child can have meaningful learning experiences while they are home. Students can be reading and practicing their math facts daily. They may also access any KCSD Online Programs through our Student Resources Page.
Information Regarding OT Services
The Occupational Therapist that provides your child with services during the school year will be continuing to provide services via Zoom during Covid 19. They will be sending out a zoom link for your child to join. If the time and day does not work please let them know and they will try to reschedule.
For all therapy sessions a person 18 years or older will need to stay in the room with your child.
Also please try to get together an “OT Tool kit” with as many of the below items that you have currently in your home, you do not need to buy anything. If you do not have many of the items, please let your therapist know.

If your child participates in any Occupation or Physical therapy while in school, Mrs. Andrews has created a list of resources for you to practice at home here!
Also here are two links from Mrs. Mata for orchestra students.
Additionally, the Bancroft Staff has worked to compile a list of Online Learning Opportunities for Students that your child may use to enrich his/her learning experience. Please continue to check back for daily activities! We look forward to connecting with you virtually over the next two weeks!
We are so excited to share this link to Miss William’s YouTube channel featuring “Loving Kindness Meditation for Students”. This is a great way for the entire family to spend time together and learn about meditation for these stressful times! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMGfEcSligc&feature=youtu.be
