It’s “healthy spirit” week, part of Bonac on Board’s Kick Off to Wellness. On Monday, students donned pajamas as a reminder that “early to bed and early to rise makes a Bonacker healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Tuesday saw bright colors and sunglasses to “eat right and be bright.” Today, Wednesday, October 23, is boots and bandannas to give “junk food the boot.” Thursday, October 24, crazy hair and hat day will toast “hair’s to good health,” and on Friday, students can show their healthy spirit by wearing either maroon and gray or green for health.

Each day before classes start, Bonac on Board has been serving delicious and nutritious samples of healthy breakfast starters. Friday, October 25, will see folks from the Amagansett Food Institute and the East Hampton Wellness Foundation paying a visit to a school-wide assembly.

Also on Friday, the seventh and eighth grade will enjoy a Halloween dance from 7 to 9 p.m. Costumes are encouraged.
