News and Announcements

I will keep the book order until Monday in case anyone would like to place an order yet.


On Friday, March 10th we will have a "My Plate" party to celebrate all we have learned about eating healthy. If you are able to send any of the following foods to school for our party, we would appreciate it. Ideas are pretzels or crackers from the grain group, carrots or celery from the vege group, apples or other fruits and cheese sticks from the dairy group. Any other ideas are welcome. I have a refrigerator at school to keep the food in. Thank you.
