Wellness Week

Wellness Week
November 17-21

Monday the 17th and Tuesday the 18th will be our taste testing. The students will participate in fitness exercises first to get them moving. Afterwards, we will try a taste of a green smoothie and learn the health benefits of the fruits and veggies in it.

Wednesday the 19th and Thursday the 20th join us for jogging/walking on the track with your child(ren).

Friday the 21st is Zumba for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades. And Parisi speed school will talk “back pack safety” with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.

See the schedule for the times each grade level will be in health fitness.

 *5th graders will be on a field trip Tuesday November 18th so they will not attend the taste testing that day.

*Come dressed to exercise.

Salad Bar is Back

Healthy Lifestyles Update

salad-barWe are excited to announce that the salad bar will be making a permanent appearance in the cafeteria very soon! So, mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 15!

We have made some changes since last Spring’s trial period, so the following is a short Q&A:

Q.  When will the salad bar be offered in the cafeteria?

A. The salad bar will be offered to ALL GRADES on Wednesdays and Fridays. The first official day of the salad bar will be Wednesday, October 15!

 Q. What is now offered with the salad bar?

A. There will be two sizes available: large for $4.00 and small for $2.50.  The base salad is only lettuce, and then after the child pays, he or she can choose from a wide range of fruits and vegetables as well as a choice of protein including chopped chicken, ham, turkey or cheese.

 Q. What kind of salad dressings will be served?

A. We will be offering a healthy selection of dressings including olive oil, red wine vinegar, balsamic vinaigrette and ranch.

 Q. Will there be anything else offered to round out the salad bar offering?

A. Yes! The child can supplement the salad with a bag of pretzels or comparable grain snack.

 Q. Are the salads pre-packaged or will my child have a choice as what to put on it?

A. The base salad just starts with lettuce – nothing more. Then after paying, the child can choose which toppings he or she would like to put on top. If your child does not care for a particular item or has dietary issues, he or she does not have to take that topping.

 Q. Can my child still enjoy a salad if he/she brought a lunch from home?

A. Yes, there will be a special exception made if a child wishes to replace or supplement their lunch from home with a salad in the cafeteria!

 Q. How is having a salad bar possible at Frostwood?

A. Through the amazing support of the District, Child Nutrition Services (CNS), Frostwood leadership and cafeteria staff, we are excited to bring this healthy option to Frostwood. In addition, the service associated with the salad bar is based on 100% volunteer support of Frostwood parents. Several men and women have gone through a necessary training and have dedicated themselves to this process to prep, serve and manage the salad bar each week. Thanks volunteers!!

Please contact Heather Burkhart (hpburkhart@hotmail.com) or Shelley Jones (c_sjones@yahoo.com) with any questions or if you would like to be trained as a volunteer for this very important initiative!
