Coming back from any vacation and starting work again is challenging, but returning to school after Christmas break is tough. Children are trading their holiday bliss…shiny new presents, staying up late, and plodding around the house in warm flannel pajamas to the reality of being back to school. One to two weeks is a long time in the life of most children and some (many!) rules of school are often forgotten over a long break. Some kiddos think that the fun of the vacation will continue while they will be missing it once they are back to school. It’s stressful.
There all kinds of tips to reduce stress:
- List all the stressors in your life…I can write down several – all names of people under the age of ten.
- Remove your stressors whenever possible…if I removed my stressors, some children would be sitting out on the playground.
- Peppermint aromatherapy…”Mrs. Killian, it smells like marker breath in here.
- Calming sounds of rain…that just makes me want to use the restroom.
Last week I found it; the best way to remove stress. It arrived in a small box from Amazon. SNAP! List your stressors, remove your stressors, aromatherapy, calming sounds, my foot. I plopped down in my chair and stared at the bubble wrap in my hands. Slowly a smile spread across my face. Then I squeezed one bubble.
SNAP! SNAP. SNAP. SNAP. SNAP. SNAP.
Way better than peppermint.

Riverview third graders and sixth graders met Officer Cory Grover after reading and discussing the story “Aero and Officer Mike.” Officer Grover brought his police dog and talked with the students about the training that he and his dog went through together. Officer Grover explained how his police dog is a loyal partner and they work together every day. Students had a great time making connections from reading "Aero and Officer Mike" and meeting Officer Grover and his police dog. Thank you for your service!

Once again, in conjunction with this year's school food drive ... we are bringing back our competition leading to the Super Bowl called “Tailgating for Tummies”. We will work to see which class can bring in the most “touchdowns”, and the grade-level with the greatest total will win the Super Bowl Tailgate Celebration.
How to get a touchdown: For every 100 items (representing 100 yards on a football field) a class will earn a "touchdown". Student Council Members will come by each morning to collect the food drive items. Our School Food Drive is: January 8, 2018 - February 2, 2018. Thank you, everyone!!!!

Madison Parker, a 7th grade student here at Spanish Fork Jr. High School, is a state swim champ. I caught up with her recently, and this is what she had to say about her experiences.
“Swim is one of the most popular sports in the Olympics. Even though it isn’t very common in Utah, I still do it.
“I started when I was eight years old. There was a city team that swam down at the Spanish Fork pool. I swam there for one summer then decided I want to join club. I swim in Provo now on the Utah Valley Rays Aquatic Team. I am almost finishing my 5th year of swimming.
“I have competitions/meets whenever we are able to. I have little meets here and there, but normally my big meets are either in July or August [and sometimes] in December or March. My meets are everywhere across Utah. I have been to Hawaii, Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas for national swim meets.
“From the beginning of school to the end I practice 2 ½ hours at the Provo Rec Center, six days a week. In the summer, I practice from 5 a.m. to 7:30 a.m., and in the afternoon, I swim from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. So, I am swimming two times a day until Saturday, when I swim from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., but don’t go back in the afternoon.
“My goal with swimming is the Olympics; right now I am working for Junior Nationals times and Olympic Trials. By 2020 my goal is to attend the Olympic Trials. By 2024 I want to be in college on scholarship and attend the Olympics. Those are most of my long-term goals. My short-term goal is to final at Sectionals which is in Texas in March, and to also get my Junior Nationals times as well.
“I love swimming and it has taught me to push my limits, that I am so much stronger than I thought, and hard work pays off! It is hard but it’s what I love to do.”
It's time to sign up for SEP Conferences again. They are being held Thursday, January 11 starting at 3:00 PM. Sign ups are on the Larsen Elementary website and are really easy to do.
