We will be outside today at lunch. Bring your jacket with you to the cafeteria. You will NOT be allowed to go back to your locker.

DAILY HEALTH TIP
Ask for whole grains when you go out to eat. You can get brown rice in many Chinese restaurants. Many restaurants offer whole grain breads and tortillas, and you may even be able to find a whole-wheat pizza crust. Just asking makes restaurants know that people want to eat more whole grains.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ....
