Remember ~ your day is what you make it. Let's make it a good one!

Final Exam Schedule
Thursday ~ Science/History Exams
Friday ~ Make Up Exams

Start your day, the whole grain way! It takes just minutes to make oatmeal or another hot whole grain cereal for breakfast. Top your hot cereal with raisins, fresh fruit, nuts, or a dash of cinnamon.

Don't just eat one unsweetened whole grain breakfast cereal — make your own special mix! You can have it for breakfast or for an easy snack.

Try using whole wheat bread to make a sandwich. If you're used to using white bread, start with one slice of whole wheat and one slice of white. You'll get used to the more flavorful whole wheat bread quickly.
