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.

Agenda design entries are due in the main office tomorrow.


STOP!  Check the lunch table if you find yourself without a lunch today before buying or going hungry!


Since food allergies affect many people, help all of your friends have fun together. There are lots of ways to have fun without food. Listening to music, playing video or board games, making crafts, going for a bike ride, and playing sports are just some of the cool things you can do together. This way, everyone stays safe and has fun.


Attention all 8th graders interested in running cross country next Fall. Join Ms. DeGaetano on Friday morning for a run from 7 30- 8AM. Meet in room C11 at 7 25. Stay tuned for upcoming morning and afternoon runs for the remainder of the school year. Go Rams!

As we continue to recognize Food Allergy Awareness Week, it’s important to remember to not share your food or utensils with friends who have food allergies. Sharing food can be very dangerous for people with food allergies. Even a tiny amount of the food they are allergic to can make them very sick.


Bright Life Buddies will be meeting today, Wednesday, after school.

Accepting artwork for next year’s agenda in the main office


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.

Remember to show your support by dressing in teal tomorrow.
