Director in the Classroom
Recently in January, Mr DeLisle was invited to Williams Intermediate to discuss Healthy Eating with Mr. Arruda's Health Classes, and Mr. Robichaud's Science Classes. Besides the benefits of the 5 Food Groups, 8 classrooms of students engaged in a lively discussion about reading Food Labels. Focus was on Portion Sizes, Calories, Ingredients, Junk Food and Whole Grains.
Every November, Mr DeLisle speaks with all the 3rd grade classroom students at Mitchell Elementary and discusses the 5 food groups and the importance of each in a healthy balanced diet. At the end of each session, students try to match a food item with the food group they belong to. One lucky student in each classroom wins a bag of locally grow apples!
Farms to Schools
In October, our Farms To Schools promotions at the HS, RMS and WIS created lots of excitement in our cafeterias. Students learned why it is good to buy local. They tasted locally grown Apple Cider & Kale Chips and got to guess the weight of a giant pumpkin. Chartwells at B-R continues to purchase locally grown produce for Students including Cucumbers, Green Peppers, and Apples.
