Dear Parents/Guardians of Grades K & 1 Children,


Healthy eating behaviors and physical activity are important for your child’s health and well-being.  As you know, over the last few years much emphasis has been placed on promoting good eating habits.


All children in K & 1 have a 5 minute snack time incorporated into each day.  When packing these snacks please be mindful of the following:


  • All drinks must be healthy.  This includes juice boxes or water.  Do not send in any glass containers, and soda is not allowed.
  • Healthy snacks include, cheese (low fat preferred), fruits, vegetable or crackers, etc.  Do not send potato chips or any other kind of chips, candy or cookies.


Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
