Lanie accepted the award from her uncle, Doug Beck of the Affton Board of Education.
Mrs. Kilgore hand-picked (from left to right) Sidney W., Teonia M., Chloe C, Ema V., and Almira M. to think of a problem having to do with fitness or health, and solve that problem. Almira was awarded $1,000, Teonia $1,000, and Chloe is in the process of trying to win $8,000!! They were able to go to the City Museum, play big Jenga and Adventure Capital provided mentors to help make prototypes of their ideas!Please vote for Chloe's idea here to help Rogers win a chance to bring her idea into reality: https://adcapyouth.wishpond.com/team-up-for-a-healthy-america/
Mrs. Beezley's Corner
Wellness committee updates: We asked Ms. Bunn from Chartwells to start serving strawberry milk-please ask your kids what they think and let us know. Also beginning in January, fresh wraps are back at lunches and will be made to order. Adding items such as cheese, tomatoes and peppers can increase nutrients and make lunch more healthy for students.
FUTP students wrote Holiday cards to APC, Board members, Administration, Grandpa Dave and local farmers to thank them for support received during the year.
