Students are recognized each day to be our “Star Student”. A paragraph is read over our public address system detailing why this student was recognized. Every Star Student's picture is proudly displayed on our bulletin board for the month. At the end of the month, Star Students and their parents are invited to our Star Student presentation. Students are congratulated and receive a certificate of accomplishment from Mrs. Bera

News from our Nurse
I’d like to ask your cooperation when sending in lunch, snacks and baked goods to school. Several children in the school have life-threatening food allergies to peanuts and/or tree nuts. Exposure to these foods either by eating, touching or being touched by someone who has this food residue on them can bring on an anaphylactic reaction, which can result in death for such children. Limiting potential exposure to these foods would greatly minimize the risk posed to these children. Therefore, I am asking for your cooperation when packing your child’s lunchbox or sending in snacks or party treats.
While peanut butter is the most common form of exposure, peanuts and tree nuts (which include walnuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios, pecans, hazelnuts, and filberts) are very often present in baked goods and candy and can only be detected by carefully reading the ingredient label.
HOW TO READ A LABEL FOR A TREE NUT-FREE DIET:
Avoid foods that contain nuts or any of these ingredients:
Nut paste i.e. almond paste
Pecans (Mashuga nuts)
Pine nuts (pinyon nuts)
Gianduja (a creamy mixture of chocolate and chopped toasted nuts found in premium or imported chocolate
NuNuts artificial nuts
Nut butters i.e. cashew butter
KEEP THE FOLLOWING IN MIND:
- Artificial nuts can be peanuts that have been deflavored and reflavored with a nut, like pecan or walnut.
- Filberts are also hazelnuts.
- Avoid natural extracts i.e. pure almond extract, use imitation or artificial flavored extracts.
- Tree nuts have been used in many foods including barbeque sauce, cereals, crackers and ice cream.
