A pink information sheet went home with students this week with instructions on how to sign up on-line for conferences. The website, wwwrwschoolsystems.com/n winn/ will be open from Sept. 25 to Oct. 18. Conferences are 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 30 and 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 2.
Kindergarten students recently harvested from our school garden a kind of soybean called sweet beans or edamame. The kitchen staff cooked the beans and fifth grade volunteers served them during lunch.
For pictures and more information on this project, see the Wellness page on the North Winn website.
Serving unfamiliar foods in the cafeteria is one of several wellness activities at North Winn. All schools have wellness policies and committees to help students learn lifetime physical activity and nutrition habits. Committees include teachers and other staff, students, parents and community members. You may review North Winn policies, including wellness (507.9), passed by our school board, on our website.
If you want to help make North Winn a healthier place, please join the wellness committee!
