DAILY HEALTH TIP
Some foods just have one ingredient. For instance, an apple is just that — an apple. It gets more complicated when manufacturers have to combine ingredients to make something else. Some foods can have more than 50 ingredients!

SCHOOL-WIDE EXPECTATIONS
Conflict Resolution:
One way you can handle conflict is by using "I" messages; When you are trying to work out a problem with someone try telling them how you feel by saying:
* I feel mad (feeling)
* when I'm ignored at lunch (behavior)
* because it makes me feel like we're not friends. (effect behavior has on you)
* If we are going to be friends, I need for you to acknowledge me at all times. (what you need the other person to do)
