CATCH Corner

February is American Heart Month. Learning about effective ways to maintain heart health will help lower the risk of developing severe illnesses later in life. It is important for our Baldwin Bobcats to learn this now to make healthy habits leading into adulthood. Encourage your children to eat a heart-healthy diet and incorporate CATCH GO, SLOW, and sometimes WHOA foods. Aim for your child to get 60 minutes or more of active physical activity each day. They will be sure to become heart-healthy kids with these reminders!

February is also another important month - Children's Dental Health Month! This month is a great time to spread awareness about the importance of children's dental health. Early dental habits are important in maintaining good oral health throughout life.

Have you noticed the engraved pavers as you head into school? Ever wondered how you can get your own paver? Now is your chance -- pavers are on sale now!

Crossing Guard Needed

A crossing guard is needed to monitor the crosswalk on Meridian Park Blvd.  This is a City of Austin position, but in the meantime, volunteers are needed to help out.  If you are interested in volunteering or applying to become an official City of Austin Crossing Guard, please contact Mrs. Murray.

Until then, please continue to slow down and stop for our Bobcats as they use the crosswalks while arriving and leaving the school.

Spring Fundraiser Volunteers

Planning for our spring fundraiser has begun, and we are looking for volunteers to help with preparations for an online auction.  This is a great one-and-done volunteer opportunity.  Best of all - much of the work can be done from home!  If you are interested in helping out, email fundraising@baldwinpta.org.
