Dear Families,

We hope you're enjoying the week off and staying warm! We'll be meeting again when we return to school on Monday, and hope you'll join us. Please see the details below.

February PA Meeting: February 23 at 7 PM
We'll be joined this coming Monday by a representative of Dial-A-Teacher to discuss how to make the nightly homework chores more fruitful and happier.

Wellness Committee:
At the last general meeting, we had a discussion about the state of school lunches and how as a parent body we could help our school to adopt a lunch menu that is healthy and sustainable for all of our children. Our principal has helped us to set up a meeting on March 2 with a representative from SchoolFood, the agency that manages lunches for NYC to discuss the options. If you are interested in working with our committee to not only research great lunch options but also bring programming on food and nutrition to our families, please join us! Contact Andrea Strong andreastrong157@gmail.com to learn more about the committee and how you can contribute, or see us at Monday's meeting.
