Tuesday- Homemade Muffin or Bagel
Wednesday- Breakfast Round or Bagel
Thursday- Yogurt Meal or Bagel

The Hot Breakfast this Week will be Scrambled Eggs
THURSDAY - Clementines
FRIDAY - Cucumbers

While clementines are similar to mandarins, they have fewer calories and much more Vitamin C.

The first clementines were grown in the United States at the Citrus Research Center in 1909 and were finally commercially grown in California in 1914.

Clementines can keep furniture predators away - if your cats are chewing the house plants, leave some clementine peels by the leaves!



It will be a bitterly cold day outside. Stay inside and use go-noodle or some other exercise videos to get your exercise indoors.

This is a picture of the cafeteria compost bin from Wednesday's lunch. What can we students and staff do to avoid contamination of our food waste like this? Would you mind discussing this in your classrooms?

Three owls were brought to St. Albans City School to further our kindergarteners natural science education. All three owls had been hit by cars, probably when flying low across a road at night in search of pray. None will be able to fly normally again and are now traveling around to schools for educational purposes.  Only their handler was allowed to hold and touch these remarkable birds.  Students could get close to the owls and had a lot of questions for the handler.  LINK TO 46 PICTURES
