CRES Blood Drive

Thank you to all who took time on Tuesday to donate at our CRES blood drive! We had a wonderful response & even had to have two bloodmobiles come to our school! We had 53 donors and the blood drive average is only 28! So, kudos to you!!

The Class Pizza Party was awarded to Mrs. Rent’s class with 11 kids who had donors come to the blood drive!

65 students were able to get at least one donor (a few from the same family) & 5 students will be awarded a free movie pass for getting at least 3 donors! Great job!!

National Nutrition Month 2018

March is National Nutrition Month! This year’s theme "Go Further with Food" encourages us to attain the many benefits of healthy eating while also finding ways to reduce food waste. The foods you choose make a difference. Planning meals and snacks in advance can help you make healthier choices, as well as reduce food loss and waste. Try to include a variety of healthful foods from all the different food groups every day and find activities that you enjoy and be physically active most days of the week.

In celebration of National Nutrition Month, Hamilton Southeastern Schools will be offering fruit and vegetable samples to students at all schools every day during the last week of March. We encourage all students to join us in celebrating and come enjoy some delicious, healthy treats!
