Fruity Fridays ~ Coming soon!

Thu, 02/16/2017 - 9:59am
March is National Nutrition Month!   To highlight and reinforce the importance of healthy eating, we will be celebrating Fruity Fridays with our students.  Beginning Friday February 24th, students are invited to bring and to eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables during their lunchtime.  Each Friday, one color of the rainbow is highlighted and students are asked to pack in their lunch or select a fruit or vegetable from the school lunch that matches the color. Students who eat their fruit or vegetable will receive a ticket.  Students will write their names on their tickets and be entered into a weekly raffle for a variety of prizes.
