Did You Know February is Black History Month?

February is Black History Month, and a great way to help your children learn more about African American history is by using picture books as a teaching tool. Picture books break history into bite-sized, age-appropriate pieces for young children, with vivid illustrations and easy-to-digest text. From picture books on well-known figures like Rosa Parks to the story of the black female mathematicians behind one of NASA's greatest operations, Scholastic's Black History Month picture book list covers a multitude of subjects. For longer works on Black History geared towards preteens and teens, check out Scholastic's comprehensive Black History Month book list for all ages.

Parent Cafe Series

Healthy Lamoille Valley is pleased to invite all parents/caregivers to our monthly Parent Cafe Series. These monthly gatherings are designed to highlight a community resource or parenting skill and then encourage conversation with other parents/caregivers from around the region. Breakout groups will be facilitated by local school and mental counselors arranged by children’s ages, i.e. elementary, middle, and high school parent discussion rooms.

Super Bowl Sunday: Stay Safe!

If you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday, remember: it’s safest to celebrate with the people you live with.

Check out some of the CDC’s tips -- like hosting a virtual watch party or starting a text group with other fans to chat while you watch. Make your own special game-day apps and snacks, or get take-out food to enjoy with those you live with (Bonus: supports your local food establishments!).

Gathering with people from outside your own household increases the chances of spreading of COVID-19, especially if you’re indoors, close together, and eating or drinking without masks. Many cases and several outbreaks started with get togethers.

As Dr. Anthony Fauci put it on ABC’s “Good Morning America”: “You don’t want parties with people that you haven’t had much contact with. You just don’t know if they’re infected. So as difficult as that is, at least this time around, just lay low and cool it.”

So, root for your favorite team, debate the best commercial, and enjoy the game safely!

Keep your eyes peeled!

Eighth graders began passing out these flyers for their fundraising Citrus Sale. Keep your spirits and Vitamin C levels up. Remember the proceeds go towards their class trip.

Please make checks payable to BJAMS
