BREAKFAST  PROGRAM/HEALTHY ACTIVE SCHOOL INITIATIVE

As part of our healthy active school initiative, we will be continuing our breakfast program this year. We will provide a breakfast consisting of cereal and milk, a piece of fruit (seasonal), or a cereal bar.   Also, we encourage parents of children who do not like to eat breakfast to send in a small nutritious snack in their children’s lunch boxes.  These snacks can be eaten when they get to school or before the beginning of the school day.  Such items might include:  a sandwich; dry cereal; cheese sticks; a piece of fruit, etc.

In addition to this breakfast initiative, we are asking parents to limit as much as possible highly processed foods and sugary snacks and drinks in their children’s lunches.  Throughout the year, all teachers will be stressing the importance of making healthier food choices, and we ask that this also be discussed at home.  We ask that parents do not send in suckers of any type with their children (especially in the lower levels) as they have large amounts of sugar and food colors, and they take a very long time to eat.  Thank you for your support.

CANTEEN

Due to insufficient time, please DO NOT send the following food items to school with the students:  unopened cans of soups, spaghetti, beans, etc. or uncooked frozen products such as mini-pizza’s, pizza pockets, Michelina’s etc.  Thank you for your co-operation. I look forward to serving your children healthy choices throughout the year. 

CANTEEN – NEW PROCEDURE FOR ORDERING LUNCH

When ordering lunch for students in grades P-3 kindly send a note with your child’s name, teacher’s name, and item(s) that the student is ordering.  Please place note and money in a baggy, and ask your child to give it to the homeroom teacher.  Once collected, all orders will be taken to the cafeteria.
