March is Eat Healthy Rhode Island month 2016!

Hi DCS Families and Friends!

March is for munching all kinds of healthy foods!
Our school (grades 3 & 4), participated in a state wide Eat Healthy RI poster contest. The theme was "What does a healthy body look like after eating nutritious foods?". The children's posters, who participated, are displayed in the hall near my office. They are wonderfully nutritious looking! The winners will be announced March 9th. On March 9, please ask your child to celebrate Eat Healthy RI day by wearing green!
