Remember that the order of snack availability may be different than what is expected depending on how ripe the fruit or vegetables are when they arrive. This is a very hard time of the year for our cafeteria staff to find large quantities of ripe fresh fruits and vegetables.
Tues - carrots w/ranch
Wed - pears
Thurs - Bananas
Fri - golden delicious apples
Bananas: research has shown that the levels of nutrients rise in bananas as they ripen. Bananas with dark spots were eight times more effective in enhancing the power of white blood cells than green-skin bananas, according to a 2009 study published in Food Science and Technology Research. White blood cells fight infections from bacteria, fungi, viruses and other pathogens.  LINK TO REFERENCE

On Tuesday morning, Mrs. Smith’s 1st graders visited Ms. Lawyer’s kindergarten class. The first graders have spent the past few weeks working on writing and publishing their own nonfiction books about penguins. First graders read these books to the kindergarteners, taught them facts about penguins, and formed new friendships!    LINK TO 14 PICTURES

The Travelers team went to Cairn Skate Rink for a skating field trip. For many it was the first time skating. The trip was successful with virtually everyone getting a chance to give skating a try. Thanks to all the adults who came out and supported the trip.  Thanks also to Ms. Mailhotte for the pictures.

On Wednesday morning we had a moment of spring-like conditions and kids and staff took advantage of it.  Here are a few pictures of students moving outdoors and having a blast.

These students were observed racing around the little gym on Wednesday 2-21-2018. Running is natural for humans.
