November is a time for giving thanks and celebrating family traditions. As part of our curriculum students will be learning about nutrition; including how to make healthy food choices each day using the myplate.gov guidelines. Students will also be encouraged to engage in active lifestyle choices to keep healthy and fit. Please use this opportunity to introduce new fruits and vegetable to your child, find ways to stay moving and enjoy some final outdoor family activities before the snow comes.
We will also be discussing how our families celebrate Thanksgiving with traditions and feasts. This is a great time for recognizing similarities and differences amongst us. Please encourage your child to come up with ideas about how they celebrate Thanksgiving with you and your family to share with their peers.
