Monday, May 23, 2016

• OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT ALLOW •

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

WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL
Companies that make soda also work very hard to make sure that schools don't ban sales of soda. They hire people called lobbyists to convince state legislators and school boards that soda should be sold at school. They ignore issues like the connection between soda and being overweight in order to sell their product. Because they know that they have to seem like they care and are doing something, they say they will get rid of regular soda, but then they plan to make just as much money selling diet soda and the "sports" drinks, which have almost as much sugar as soda.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Mackenzie R.!
