March is National Nutrition Month
We will be celebrating in our schools throughout the month. There will be a focus on eating rainbow of healthy foods in lunch and wellness. The fruit & veggie bar will be open to all students during one week and the district will color code the offerings on the bar each day to the theme (colors include: red, orange, green yellow, white). There will also be a special day on which the veggie & fruit bar will be converted to a “yogurt sundae bar” with yogurt, nut-free granola & fresh fruit. Any student who buys lunch that day will get to make a sundae. Watch for more specifics in the Friday Flyer.
SAVE THE DATE
Well, we made it well into November before old man winter arrived (brrrr). While I sure was enjoying the warm unseasonable temps, I am now excited for all of the fun winter-time activities that are soon to come! Bring on the skating, sledding & hot chocolate!
With Thanksgiving and the holidays fast approaching, we are officially fully into the school year, and I have to say, the continued hard work, time commitments and overall awesomeness of the APT board and our entire Sheridan community continues to blow me away! I am so very thankful to all of the APT board and the overflowing number of parent volunteers who are rocking out all of the events, parties and always bringing new ideas to the table – all in the spirit of improving the lives of our Sheridan Shark students and staff! J Our two APT meetings to-date have been so well-attended and all of the attendees have brought valuable knowledge, updates and resources to the group!
The holiday season is always a fun time for families in our community & we are definitely doing our best to make sure this is also the case at Sheridan! We have lots of amazing upcoming events to make the season magical for both the kiddos and staff, including the back-by-popular-demand hot chocolate bar for teachers (Dec 5-9) and tasty Staff Cookie Boxes which are always a hit! And don’t forget about school events, the Winter Sing on Dec 9 and the Marriott Field trip on Dec 16 too!
As always, if you have any ideas for topics or speakers you'd be interested in hearing about at upcoming APT meetings, please do reach out as I would love recommendations! We are very excited to have Officer Christiansen on board to attend our first meeting of 2017 on January 17 @ 9 am. He will be discussing social media for grade school kids and how it evolves as they move towards DPM. If you have any questions/topics you would like him to address, please drop me a quick email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions & thanks for everyone's continued enthusiasm, commitment and support!
