Parents, we need your help to make our school healthier!

Children spend most of their day at school, so it’s important that they have healthy foods and drinks while they are there. Good nutrition also helps kids learn better at school.  

Events

1) "Wellness Wednesday": 1st Wednesday of every month families will learn nutritional facts about a fruit or vegetable for the month. Recipes included. See below for monthly Wellness Wednesdays fruit/vegetable to pack in lunches and recipes.

2) Walk to School (Oct. 2): We understand that not all families can walk to school, so try to do something active with you family on that day whether it be going on an after dinner walk, visiting a local park, or having some backyard fun.

3) Pack orange colored food during the month of November

4) Eat @ Home Night (December 4)

5) Wellness Week #1 (Jan. 13-17): Promoting a new year with new goals
