Parent volunteers are seriously needed to support our students and staff. Any amount of time you can work here at the school is appreciated. Right now we need parents to assist classroom teachers during Cookshop classes. Students in grades kindergarten to second grade have an opportunity to learn healthy eating habits each month. We need parents to help teachers work with students as they cut up vegetables , help make other food items and clean up at the end of class. Cookshop classes are usually 45 minutes.

Dental Care and your Child
This year our school is participating in a free dental screening program with St. Barnabas Hospital. Parents were sent home permission slips in October. Students who returned completed consent forms are currently being screened by a dentist. here at the school. After the screening each student has a dental report card sent. To let parents know the state of their child's teeth.
So far the screening team has seem a number of students who need serious dental follow up. Poor dental care can result in lost permanent teeth, pain and may affect the health of your child. Remember, children should brush and floss twice a day. Check your children's teeth following brushing to make sure they are doing a good job. Reduce your child's consumption of sugary snacks and drinks. Many students eat candy and drink sodas for breakfast and lunch.
If you want your child to have healthy teeth as an adult, make sure they learn how to take care of their teeth now.
