The Local Food Ambassador program returned to LaPerche Tuesday, October 15 during lunch thanks to our food service provider Chartwells! During lunch, students were invited to try a dish that contained 12 different ingredients. They could smell and taste it and work as a table to determine as many ingredients as possible. Many students enjoyed the Kale and Mesclun Salad with Orange Honey Mustard Dressing and ate the whole serving! Many students asked for the recipe to make with their families. Ask your child if they participated and what ingredients they were able to discover! The goals of the program are to ....give students the opportunity to try nutritious foods, maybe for the first time! ....encourage young people to enjoy fruits and vegetables from an early age. ...create fun and memorable experiences and positive food environments. ....help build community among food service providers, families, school staff, and the students! view image

Thank you to the Smithfield firefighters who visited LaPerche yesterday. They talked to the students about the importance of knowing what to do in a fire. One of the firefighters put on all of the gear they wear when they fight fires. They wanted the kids to see the sights and hear the sounds they would see in a fire. They wanted to make sure the kids don’t hide from them and instead call out in a fire. Student volunteers demonstrated how to stop, drop and roll. One important piece of the STOP portion is covering your face with your hands. The kids were reminded to crawl out of a room with smoke and were challenged to plan AND PRACTICE an escape route at home. Show your child the pictures and talk about your evacuation route today! view image
