Mrs. Marshall met with the students this week to talk about nutrition. She talked about the 5-2-1 rule (at least 5 fruits/vegetables, no more than 2 hours of screen time and at least 1 hour of physical activity). She taught the children about their “plate” and that it should be filled half way with fruits and vegetables. A Veggie and Fruit BINGO sheet went home with each child this week–please encourage your child to do this.
Mrs. Marshall also read with the children the story, Kevin and the School Nurse. This was a cute story about a boy who skips breakfast and then skips lunch, and how it makes him feel sick for the entire day.
