Please contact the nutrition department or the school if you have any questions.
Dot Day- Sept. 13th
Join us for Dot Day! We will have a parade at school on Friday, Sept. 13th at 2:40 pm. You are welcome to join as we celebrate creativity and making your mark. All students will participate in the Dot Day Parade.
International Dot Day, a global celebration of creativity, courage, and collaboration, based on the book The Dot.
The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe.
And each year on International Dot Day – with the help of people just like you –the inspiration continues. What started as a story in the pages of a book is transforming teaching and learning around the world as people of all ages re-discover the power and potential of creativity in all they do.
