PACK Week is September 17-21!
The Week of Sept. 17-21, is P.A.C.K. Week at Monrovia Elementary. What is P.A.C.K. Week you ask? It is an initiative to help students have fun eating more Fruits and Vegetables. P.A.C.K stands for Pick or Pack Assorted Colors for Kids. This is a week we focus on eating healthy foods by eating the colors of the Rainbow. Every day is a different color(s).
If your child brings their lunch you can follow the schedule below to match the color/s of the day. If your child buys their lunch they can eat the Fruits and Vegetables served in the cafeteria that will match the color/s of the day!
For more Fun, let’s all wear the Color of the Day. I plan to go in the cafeteria daily to take pictures of students eating fruits and vegetables and will post them in the hallway outside the cafeteria. I like to take the pictures of students eating and wearing the Color of the Day!
The colors of the day are:
Monday - Purple/ Blue Day
Tuesday - White/ Tan/ Brown Day
Wednesday - Red Day
Thursday - Yellow/ Orange Day
Friday - Green Day
Let’s have fun while Eating Healthy!!
Your assistance is greatly appreciated!
