A bow of respect and hearty congratulations to this month’s hardworking students:

Junior — Joshua Butler
Adult — Meredith Angel
Black Belt Club — Zaiir Walcott
SWAT — Christopher Beamon
Elite SWAT — Luke DeLaney
STORM —Matthew Johnson
FKB — Scott Reister
Park Road — Henry Earl
Zaiir has been doing martial arts for almost two years now. The Kennedy Middle School student says the hardest part of training for his black belt is doing the same thing again and again. He wants to move on quickly. He enjoys training with Sensei though and watching the other black belts in class to see what he needs to work on and what he will one day be.
Did you know?
Laughter Online University shared several fun facts about smiles. Here are a few we enjoyed:
- Smiles are the most easily recognizable facial expression:People can recognize smiles from up to 300 feet away, making it the most easily recognizable facial expression.
- Smiles use from 5 to 53 facial muscles:Just smiling can require your body to use up to 53 muscles, but some smiles only use 5 muscle movements.
- There are 19 different types of smiles:UC-San Francisco researcher identified 19 types of smiles and put them into two categories: polite “social” smiles which engage fewer muscles, and sincere “felt” smiles that use more muscles on both sides of the face.
