I will be providing the main dish and there will be a sign-up sheet for side dishes. Your child can only attend if a parent or guardian is present. There will be a sign up sheet for attendence so that I know how much food to get. Join us and let's celebrate another year in the books.

Commit to Health, Better Snack Options, More Physical Activity

We are very excited to report that we have taken the Commit to Health Pledge! In doing so you can expect to see our out of school time participants engaging in more physical activity, learning about good nutrition, and eating healthier snacks while in attendance at JCPRD. Commit to Health is an initiative of the National Recreation and Park and Association and The Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Our staff has worked hard to develop a new food service menu that features items that are nutrient dense, low in fat, sugar, and sodium, as well as more fresh fruits and vegetables. Please support our efforts to help students develop healthy eating habits by encouraging them to be open to trying new foods and by reinforcing the benefits of nutritious diet. Healthy snacks and meals improve cognitive function, increase energy, and help children grow strong muscles and bones!

Mileage Club

Our kids have been participating in a mileage club to promote daily excerise and fitness. The kids can earn a toe token to wear for every five miles that they walk. We are also keeping track of the total mileage that our group has walked and listing it on the board. We have put a map of the U.S. on the board as well to show how far we have walked. We are trying to make it to the west coast by the end of school.

So far our group has gone over 508 miles since we start at the begining of March
