Timing is everything

A diet that promotes good oral health is not just about the foods you eat or avoid — when and how you eat them is equally important.

· Foods that take a long time to chew or that you hold in your mouth (such as cough drops) can damage teeth as they retain sugar in the mouth longer than do other foods.

· Instead of snacking on sugary, carbohydrate-rich or acidic foods throughout the day, eat these foods just during meal times in order to minimize the amount of time teeth are exposed to acid. In addition, the body produces more saliva to help digest larger meals, which washes away more food and helps neutralize harmful acids before they can attack teeth.

· Remember to brush and floss before bedtime to remove all the food particles….but also brush before you come to school.

LJM Birthday Books

Celebrate your child’s birthday and help our Library!

• Instead of a birthday treat – donate a book to the library for $10!!

• You can send in a check (made payable to “LJM Activity Fund” or send cash in an envelope to Mrs. Crawford or Mrs. Riddle in the main office.

• Your child will choose a book from a selection provided.

• Mr. Jordan will personally present the book to your child.

• A bookplate with your child’s name will be placed in the book.

• Your child will be the first person to check out the book from the library. The classroom teacher may read a portion of the book to his/her class.

• The book will be displayed in our LJM school library and be available to all LJM students for checkout.

What a great way to celebrate your child’s birthday while helping our LJM Library collection grow!
