Healthy Lunch Ideas
Just a reminder that our classrooms do not have microwaves (Grade 1 to 6). Due to the number of heat ups, instructional time was being affected and students were not having enough time to eat as they were waiting for their lunches to warm up. A thermos is a good alternative if you are wishing to send a warm lunch.
Here are some healthy ideas from Alberta Health Services on lunches which do not require heating up at school:
Lunch should be a choice from each of the four food groups. How much is eaten will depend on your child's age, appetite and activity level. Try using some of these lunches:
* Dried Fruit or 100% dried fruit leathers
* Salads with meat and cheese added
* Cottage cheese (low sodium)
* Soups in a thermos
* Whole wheat wraps with meat, cheese and shredded veggies (lettuce or carrots)
* Fresh fruit or vegatables
Safety is one of our main focuses at Norwood School! Thank you to the Safety School Patrol we are assisting our students and parents in crossing at safe times at our two designated cross walks. We encourage all our visitors, parents and students to use the crosswalks as the front of our school is a bus zone and it is difficult for our bus drivers to see if children and adults cross infront of them (it is a no see zone, meaning the driver has a good chance of not seeing you).
Thank you for being great role models -- students and parents and using our cross walks.
