The next PTA meeting and principal’s breakfast will be held on Thursday, November 21, at 9:30 a.m. At this meeting, a panel of middle school staff members—guidance, psychology, social work and health—will discuss their roles in helping kids learn about healthy behaviors, and what how they react when students make poor choices.

This month marks the Activities Club’s food drive for hunger. Students are asked to bring in any canned goods to contribute to the drive.
On the subject of food, students can begin to collect nutrition fact labels from items like granola bars, cereal, macaroni and cheese, frozen pizza, and more, to bring to the science lab.
The Healthy Food for Life program continues at the school; parents are welcome to participate with their child. Contact Ginny Reale at the Wellness Foundation for more information, or check the Gingerbread Express.
