PSSA-Success and Celebration

To prepare for the PSSAs, our school is conducting several activities to promote a culture of success and celebration around testing:

1. Conversations and assemblies will provide positive mindset and set test expectations.

2. Students will work together to develop motivational posters for display in testing classrooms.

3. Building-wide celebration is planned for each school that reaches the test participation goal of 95%.

PSSA testing will occur on the dates listed here. To learn more about the PSSA, please join us for a Parent Information webinar with our administration on Tuesday, March 21 at 6:30pm. Click the hyperlinked dates for a direct link to either session. You can also submit your questions here.

Nutrition: Vitamin D

What is Vitamin D?

People need vitamin D to help the body absorb calcium. Without it, calcium can't get where it needs

Where Does Vitamin D Come From?

The Sun: Our bodies make vitamin D when our skin is exposed to the sun. It's hard to get enough vitamin D from the sun, though. Most kids and adults spend lots of time indoors at school and work. When outdoors, it's important to protect skin to prevent skin cancer and skin damage from too much sun exposure.

Food: Very few foods have vitamin D naturally. The foods with the most are fatty fish (like salmon and tuna), liver, eggs and fish oils. Kids don't eat these foods a lot. That's why food companies add vitamin D to milk, yogurt, baby formula, juice, cereal, and other foods.

Supplements: To get enough vitamin D, children often need to take a multivitamin with vitamin D or a vitamin D supplement. Vitamin D is sometimes labeled as vitamin D3.
