CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS


Need a Christmas Gift? What if I told you that the Christmas gift from your child to his/her grandparent or special person is taken care of? Well it is! And, what if I also told you that by ordering your Christmas gifts, you also are helping raise funds for our new playground? Yes! The photographs that were taken on Friday at Grandparents’/Special Persons’ Day will be offered to you on several gift items. Samples will be on display by the school office starting Wednesday, October 11. An order form is in your family envelope today. The photo items available are a keychain, magnet, ornament, coffee mug, or travel mug. Buy one or all 5! The school will receive 1/3 of the cost of the items as profit toward our new playground!


SALAD BAR ETIQUETTE


A few weeks ago, the St. Ann Lunch Program expanded to offer an ala carte salad bar. The salad bar has been a big hit with students and it is great to see the many benefits of adding fresh fruit and vegetable options in the menu! As students get used to the salad bar option, however, it is important to consider some important “etiquette” to ensure safe and healthy handling of food. Below are some “Golden Rules” regarding salad bar usage from the Association of State Public Health Nutritionists. Please discuss these rules with your child(ren).

Golden Rules for Kids

1. Always wash your hands first.
2. Use utensils. Never use your fingers.
3. If a utensil or plate falls on the floor, don’t put it back. Tell a cafeteria person.
4. Don’t taste food items at the salad bar.
5. When trying new foods, take a small amount the first time.
6. Take only what you can eat.
7. Don’t bring food back to the salad bar.
8. Don’t put your head under the sneeze guard or food shield.
9. Ask a friend or a cafeteria person to help if you can’t reach.
10. Always be polite in line. Wait your turn.
11. Always use a clean plate for seconds.


BUCKY BOOKS TO SUPPORT 8TH GRADE WASHINGTON D.C. TRIP


The 8th graders are heading to Washington, D.C. in early March. Students will have the opportunity to visit the Smithsonian Museums, see the many historical monuments, and hopefully have a chance to tour our nation’s capitol building. To help with the cost of the trip, Mrs. Grutzner is selling Bucky Books to help raise money toward food costs. If you would like to buy a book for $35, please contact Mrs. Grutzner. Each book sold will mean $15 towards food for the students. The sale ends October 15. Thank you for your support!
