7 Habits for Healthy Children

Character Counts is a district-wide character program and we embrace the value of that program as the foundation for building good character in all of us! The Leader in Me is a framework for us to help students build habits of good character.
Please clip and save box tops! They earn money for our school:)
We have lunch daily at 11:55. We would like to have a small snack in the morning. Please send 20 healthy individually wrapped snacks a month. Please mark the outside of the bag with your child’s name so I can check them off monthly. The children seem to enjoy pretzels, baked chips, cheez-its, goldfish and granola bars.
BOOK IN THE BAG
We have begun our” book in the bag” program. This program is geared to your child’s reading level. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me.
