Jump Rope for Heart 2018

Jump Rope for Heart 2018

Our school is participating in Jump Rope for Heart through the American Heart Association.
All students in grades K-8 received a packet and information in their PE and Health classes
early in the month.

If your child is interested in being a “heart hero” for others in need please go to the website and
register at and search for Elysian School, Billings MT. Just for registering your
child will receive a free glow in the dark wristband. So far as a school we have raised $2500.

Way to go Eagles!

Did you know that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans, 80% of it may be preventable through lifestyle changes.

All packets will be due on Wednesday, February 28th . Please make all cash donations to
check form and made out to the American Heart Association. If you are doing any online
fundraising, please make sure to print off the donation report. All packets will be collected by
Mrs. Linnell.

All PE classes will be having a Jump Rope for Heart fun day the end of February.
We are asking that your child wear a red top for their specific day below for their PE day. They
will be doing a variety of activities that work our hearts in many ways.

February is already here, and we are three weeks into the third quarter! Unfortunately, (for many) it was revealed today by a highly reliable source, that we will have 6 more weeks of winter! So, please continue to watch the weather and help students dress appropriately. We are experiencing high volumes of students coming down with colds and flu, while we want students here as this is a priority for us, we also need to be respectful to others and remain home if we are contagious. I have included a note from our Nurse and RiverStone Health Services below:

Please help us prevent the spread of illnesses in the school and keep everyone healthy. I have received questions on when a child can return to school if they have the flu. If your child has a confirmed case of influenza please provide a note from the health care provider on when the child should return to school (fax if needed). The provider will have the best idea on this based on symptoms, etc. The child must also be free of fever, vomiting, &/or diarrhea without the assistance of medication, for at least 24 hours. It is important that the child feel well enough to participate in class.

Kind Regards,

Volleyball Notice – Parents & Players

Attention all Volleyball Players/Parents

Due to the change in the game schedule, we need to have to have 4 morning practices to accommodate getting 10 practices in before the first game. The first game has changed to February 6 instead of February 8th. Please check the athletic calendar for the most up-to date practice and game schedule. It is very important that your child attends these practices as this will allow us to better assess each player’s skills allowing for more accurate team placement. Practice time is very important as this will be limited throughout the season due to our game schedule.

The four morning practices are as follows:

January 26th @ 7:15-7:45

January 31st @ 7:15-7:45

February 1st @ 7:15-7:45

February 2nd @ 7:15-7:45

If you have any other questions please let me know. I can be reached at kortneyklein or 406-656-4101 ext. *213

Thank you,

Ms. Klein
