DAILY HEALTH TIP
A nori roll is a Japanese sandwich that is easy to eat and very tasty. Specially prepared rice that sticks together is rolled together with strips of tofu and vegetables such as carrots, avocado, radish, and wrapped up with a thin sheet of dried nori, which is a vegetable fro the ocean. Sometimes this is also called sushi. Most people think of sushi as raw fish, but actually sushi means vinegared rice. Sushi can be made with short grain brown rice and vegetables, and have no fish at all.

SCHOOL-WIDE EXPECTATIONS
Do you know the difference between teasing and bullying? Teasing is reciprocal, which means that both people are participating. For example, if one person calls another student lame and then the other student calls him goofy; and then they both laugh about it, that is considered teasing. Teasing becomes bullying when it is one-sided and the bully makes a choice to harm someone else with their words or actions.

At JMS I will ....
