The BFF crew (Be Your Body’s Best Friend) handed out healthy snacks in the cafeteria on Wednesday, 5/9.
We are happy to report that the majority of Glebe kids say please and thank you! : )
The featured snack was Harvest Snapea Crisps. They were a hit with most kids and teachers.
Better yet – they are actually good for you. This crunchy snack is low in sodium, and has a healthy amount of protein & fiber.
Thanks to volunteers Andrea Sanchez, Tara Blankinship & Maureen McDonough for helping out!
Reminder – If your kids are walking, biking or scooting to school, we will collect their orange cards on Friday, 5/18.
They will have a chance to win a gift card to Child’s Play.
Cornelia Lesh & Mary Beth Sancho
