Wear Your Colors!

Fruits and vegetables are not only tasty, they are generally low in calories and packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Join us as we blast off powered by healthy eating habits. To raise awareness of the benefits and variety of fruits and vegetables, Winborn students and staff will “Wear Their Colors” (shirts) the week of September 28th – October 2nd. Individual students wearing their colors will receive a SOAR ticket. Parents, we encourage you to join us as we explore the colorful world of fruits and vegetables with your children.

Monday (9/28) – RED shirts – think strawberries, apples, tomatoes

Tuesday (9/29) – GREEN shirts – think kiwi, grapes, broccoli

Wednesday (9/30) – BLUE or PURPLE shirts – think blueberries, eggplant, plums

Thursday (10/1) – Orange or Yellow shirts – oranges, squash, peppers, pumpkins

Friday (10/2) – DWE spirit shirt!

Winborn Eagles are blasting off powered by healthy

fruits and vegetables!
