As we close out Food Allergy Awareness Week, remember that you can make a difference in the lives of those living with food allergies. You can support your friends and family members with food allergies by remembering a few things:

·         Food allergies are serious.

·         Don’t share food or utensils.

·         Wash your hands after eating.

·         Even if someone can’t eat the same things you can, you still have lots of other things in common and can be great friends.

 

Tonight, Niagara Falls will light up teal to show support for Food Allergy Awareness. Imagine the support YOU can provide your friends and family members who have food allergies.


Go West Young Man. As part of the Western Expansion unit, many 6th grade history students  took the Oregon Trail challenge. Congratulations to the students who completed the highest scores on the 1980’s video game, Oregon Trail.

These were high scores not only in our school, but for everyone playing on the internet!

Did you know that the Empire State Building was lit in teal Sunday night in honor of Food Allergy Awareness Week? This Friday night, even Niagara Falls will light up teal. It’s hard to believe that foods you eat every day can hurt others, but it’s true. A reaction to food can range from a mild response (such as an itchy mouth) to anaphylaxis, a severe and potentially deadly reaction. If a friend or a classmate has a food allergy, be supportive and don’t tease, bully, or make fun of them.  Tomorrow, show your support by dressing in teal.


A reminder to 6th grade chorus members to report to the cafeteria at 6:30 this evening for the spring concert..


Science Olympiad will not meet on Friday. If you usually attend on Fridays, please attend either Tuesday morning or Thursday morning at 7:45.

This week is food allergy awareness week. To raise awareness, we will be including information each morning on the announcements.
