Please ensure your child has a nutritional snack and lunch. Many children are coming to school with cookies, cakes and candies instead of fruit, vegetables or yogurt (these are suggestions). These students are not prepared for learning after they have eaten such nutritionally poor food. Also, many students are buying junk food from the vending machine for snack and lunch. This also leaves them poorly prepared to focus and learn later in the day. When students have junk food to eat they will often eat the junk food first and then don't have time to eat any nutritional food they did bring.
Starting next Monday (Nov 9th) students will only be allowed to eat nutritious snacks. Please make sure your child has something healthy to snack on.
Thank-you for your understanding and co-operation,
