  • peanut butter

    Beginning February 1, we will introduce peanut butter cups with our fruit bowls

    district wide. (Beginning, February 1, we will introduce peanut butter cups with

    our fruit bowls in our fresh express menu.) These peanut butter cups are pre-

    packaged and sealed. We will continue to take precautions for our students who

    have peanut allergies. Students who have identified peanut allergies will be offered yogurt or cheese sticks in the

    place of the peanut butter cup with the fruit bowl meal.  If you have any questions about these changes, please contact

    Ms. Brown, Cafeteria Manager. We look forward to continuing to provide healthy and nutritious meals for your students in the new year!

    I am wishing all of our Jackson Families a very happy holiday break.  The older my children get, the more I really begin to cherish those small special moments that we have together.  Dr. Covey tells us that the most important habit is Habit #7 - Sharpen the Saw.  This habit is about taking care of the  mind, body, heart, and soul.  Spending time with our families and cherishing those moments helps us feel better emotionally.  This gives us balance and it creates a deep connection with our children that they will always have.  So over the two week break, take some time to sharpen the saw.  Here are some ideas to try: 
    1. Make some family ornaments to display around the house (pinterest has awesome ideas)
    2. Have a hot coco and pajama day with parents and kids.  
    3. Have a family game day.  Children of all ages love monopoly, life, chutes and ladders, checkers, and go fish. 
    4. Have circle time and talk about all of the things you are thankful for.  When children see you are showing gratitude, they will internalize it and practice it.  
    5. Do something for someone else - Go caroling in your neighborhood or volunteer at our local United Way.  
    These are just a few ways to sharpen your saw as a family.  I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
