Congratulations to 5th grader Adrian Beckmon

Adrian Beckmon won the public speaking contest at Del Paso Heights Elementary School.  He went on to win the 5th grade semi-final competition at Norwood Junior High last Friday. He will now represent Del Paso and compete in the finals on Thursday, March 17.  Way to go, Adrian!  We wish you the best!

FARM FRESH Campus Market

In partnership with ProPacific Fresh, Nutrition Services will be bringing Campus Market to the students on March 10, 2016.

 

How it Works

  • Nutrition Services sends $2.00 SEAL bucks to your school to be distributed to classrooms/students.
  • On the scheduled day, staff from Nutrition Services and ProPacific Produce will set up a “farmers market” on your school campus.
  • Your Principal will schedule two classrooms to rotate through the farmers market every 10 minutes.
  • Before visiting the Campus Market, each student will be given one $2.00 SEAL Buck to spend on fresh produce.
  • At the beginning of each rotation, our Nutritionist will give your students a brief lesson on farmers markets and the importance of eating fruits and vegetables.
  • Our Nutritionist will instruct students to select produce that totals up to the amount of a $2 SEAL Buck (no change is given).

Most produce items are offered at $1 each, some items may be $2.00...Students choose and pay for their own produce to be eaten in the classroom or on recess. We hope this event encourages students to visit outdoor markets with their families by offering them the experience of touching; choosing; purchasing and eating their own produce.

 

Unfortunately the grant funding does not allow produce to be given to parents or any other adult besides teachers….we need to honor the intent of this grant so that we can keep it! 

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION

Kindergarten registration for the 2016-17 school year begins on January 4th.  Prospective parents can stop by the office and pick up a packet at that time.

WESTWARD HO!

Fifth grade students from Mr. Gathing, Mr. Phung, and Mr. Schmiegel's classrooms participated in Conestoga Wagon races, vicariously traveling across the Overland Trails of the Old West in the hope of creating better lives for themselves.  The activity integrated many classroom core subjects and motivated all students to do their best.  Most student-made wagons reached their intended destinations west and for those few students that did not make it to the trails' end, they faced poverty, illness, and starvation with both courage and grace.

2015-16 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant

For the third year,  our students will receive fresh fruit and vegetable four times a week.  The purpose of the grant is threefold: to create a healthier school environment; to expand the variety of fruits and vegetables that children experience and consume; and to make a difference in children's diets that will impact their present and future health.  The fresh fruit and vegetables will be consumed either before or after lunch. If you have any questions about the grant, please talk to Mr. Macias.
