Start the Day (and the Year) Right with School Breakfast
Make sure this year's resolutions include guaranteeing your kids a balanced, nutritious breakfast every day. If your morning schedule makes this difficult, or your kids aren't hungry early in the morning, send them to school for breakfast. Many nutritious foods are available every morning in the cafeteria and free for all  students. Help your kids to make this semester a success! 
January's Character Connection:
Here are some discussion points to talk about courage with your child:
  • Tell me about a time when you were courageous.
  • Discuss bravery. Re-visit or create new family values that align with the qualities of courage and bravery.
  • Encourage positive self-talk, and hell your child overcome a small fear they may have.
