1. Serve realistic portions.
Children’s stomachs are smaller than ours.
If there is too much food offered at breakfast it will be difficult for them to finish. Serve smaller nutritious meals and snacks throughout day.
One serving from a food group can be divided up. For example, half a Food Guide Serving of Meat and Alternatives can be served at two different meals such as one egg at lunch and half a chicken breast (1 oz) for dinner.
Many parents are now benefitting from having school notices sent home via email.
This new service does not replace existing methods of communication (Talk Mail, Monthly Newsletter, School Web Page or Hard Copy Notices), however, it is one more way that information from the school can be more effectively disseminated to our stakeholders.
If you would like to start receiving school notices via email, all you need to do is send the message “Please include me in your Parent Distribution List” to the following address:

What an awesome job by Mrs. Page and her Gr. 3-5 students with their "We Scare Hunger" campaign. Over 2,000 items were collected for our local food bank, weighing in at 1,706 pounds of goods. This surpasses the goal set by our students and will greatly assist needy families in our area in the coming weeks.
We are all exceptionally proud of our boys and girls.
Pictures of our students sorting and delivering our food items may be found in our Image Gallery.
