5th Grade Club News

Our PY24 4-H Spirit winner is MLC! Students have been earning points all year by wearing green, community service (can tabs), and participating in 4-H events outside of their classroom! To keep things fair, we total all the points earned by students in each school, and divide it by the total number of that school’s 5th graders. MLC took first place with 60 pps, followed closely by WES with 45 pps and KES with 37 pps. Top point earners were: 3rd place – Kylee Smith, WES, 175 pts; 2nd place – Landon Aligood, MLC, 195 pts; 1st place – Gree Humphries, MLC, 210 pts.

Guided Relaxation

Every April, our focus is on combating test anxiety and stress. Here are a few resources that we have been using in classrooms! Belly breathing is the best way to breath during both of these exercises. Guided relaxation is a great way to lower your stress levels and a great start to a good night’s rest.
4-H version of guided relaxation narrated by Ms. Shawnie!

Square breathing is a great tool to keep in your stress management toolbox, and can be used anywhere! Try doing this right before a test or other similar stressful situations to take a minute and reset yourself. You may not be able to change the fact that you have to do it, but you CAN change how you get ready for it!
Picture a square in your mind with arrows in each corner guiding you around the square. Start in the bottom right corner, follow the arrows and slowly trace the shape with your finger as you count to 4 – side 1 – breathe in for 4; side 2 – hold for 4; side3 – breathe out for 4; side 4 – hold for 4. Do it as many times as you need to, and go a little slower each time.

We need your support!
