Classroom Celebration Food Expectations Celebration Food Expectations<p>A focus of our new school action plan involves improving the nutritional value of food that we both sell and eat at school.  </p><p>Celebrations like birthdays, holidays and end-of-year classroom parties often involve foods and drinks that are high in sugar, fat, salt and empty calories. Tying less nutritious foods to celebrations sends the message that fun and 'treats' go together. This can lead to eating more of these foods (and fewer nutritious foods). Improving the quality of food prevents this from happening and puts the focus on the real reason for the celebration!</p><p>We also have many students with severe allergies to nuts, gluten and dairy.</p><p>Let's work together to make classroom celebrations both fun and healthy.  If you are sending food into the classroom with your child, please make it fruit or veggies instead of candy, cookies and cupcakes.</p><p>Here is a suggested snack list:</p><ul><li>Veggies and dip</li><li>Whole grain muffins and fresh orange wedges</li><li>Fruit tray, fruit kabobs, cut up fruit</li><li>Whole grain crackers and cheese cubes </li><li>Yogurt, whole grain cereal and berries for parfaits</li></ul><p>We all thank you for your support.</p>
Good News and Bad News News and Bad News<div>The good news is that the contractors arrived unexpectedly yesterday to pour the gym floor.  The process will take approximately 3 weeks before we can use the gym.  The bad news is the Primary Holiday concerts will need to be postponed.  Our revised plan is to have the Primary students present their holiday concerts to the other Primary students during the day in the library.  We will unfortunately not have room for families to attend at this time.  The students will be presenting a Spring Concert in the gym at a later date and we will be inviting all of our families then.  We thank you for your patience as we try to wrap up our renovation.</div><div><br><br></div><p><br></p>
