Chorus Concert Date for your Calendar
St. Albans City School will have a chorus concert on November 17th at 6:30 in the Library. We will have both the elementary chorus and the middle school chorus performing.

For snacks today we have plums
Selection and storage
Plums can be available year around, but they are at their best between May until September. In the stores, look for fresh fruits featuring rich color and may still have a slight whitish "bloom" on their surface indicating fresh harvest.

Avoid those ones with excessively soft, or with cuts or bruises. Ripe fruits just yield to gentle pressure and feature a sweet aroma.

Students may take two fruit servings with each meal. They must take at least one.
