Local School Embraces Healthy Foods Program

St. David student Jamayla Czaja enjoys a healthy snack with her mom Melanie Czaja.

October 4, 2011 - St. David Catholic School has embraced the Healthy Food guidelines in the school and has taken the program one step further. To encourage parent engagement as well as build a deeper understanding of the principles behind the program, the school tried a new approach when planning their annual September open house. Parents and family members were invited to the school's open house by the children themselves. The children prepared healthy, "good tasting" after school snacks for their parents and family members. Parents and community members had the opportunity to not only meet new teachers and see their children's classrooms, but also were able to taste delicious healthy snacks prepared by their own children. "The after school event was a total success", declared grade 2/3 teacher and Dearness Conservation representative, Terri Lynn Lepage. "Through this activity, we were able to show students how healthy eating can be very simple and easy to do. During the open house, our students were proud of their snacks and were the ones sharing that same message with their parents". Principal, Dawn Wemigwans, said, "The event, from beginning to end, was very fun, extremely educational, provided a wonderful opportunity for our students and teachers to participate in hands on learning -- and was a great ice breaker with parents, family members and community partners".
