DAILY HEALTH TIP
Why is an apple the ideal snack? It's tasty and good for you. It doesn't leave a slippery peel behind, like a banana does. It takes a long time to go bad, so it's perfect for lunches, long hikes, or right after school. Unlike oranges, it won't make your fingers sticky.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ....
Elaine O. & Jaime W.!
