Introducing a New Healthy Snack and Lunch Program
I remember the days well - getting ready for work, making sure everyone is up and fed, beds made, after school plans in place, lunches made snacks packed – and, oh, don’t forget that water bottle! There would invariably be those days I'd open the refrigerator and the cupboard only to find that they had mysteriously gone bare - as though our household was somehow sucked into the Old Mother Hubbard Nursery rhyme as we slept in our beds.
For the past few years I have enjoyed the practice of having one-on-one meetings with Kindergarten families as a way to get to know them better, to keep my finger on the pulse of the joys and challenges parents of young children are facing, and to receive feedback and input as to how to make our school even stronger. Several years ago one parent mentioned how difficult the February and April breaks are for her family, as both parents in her household work and it was very challenging to find a babysitter to fill in for those weeks. As a result of that meeting, the idea of Vacation Care Camps was born at All Saints! Ironically enough, it was in one of my one-on-one Kindergarten meetings this year that I learned that not everyone knows that Vacation Care exists, so I thought I would use my blog this week to make sure everyone knows about this special program that is open to students in Grades K- 8.
