Healthy Snacks This month the focus for the Mango Mania Blitz is on Healthy Snacks. Keep looking for our weekly posts about these “mini meals” that are very important to children and their ability to play and learn. Snacks are important to both children and adults and we will provide some snack ideas as well as some advice on how to make snacks appealing to your children. The attached document will help introduce the topic and get you started with some ideas. January 27th -3st will be Mango Mania challenge week so children will be encouraged to be sure to bring a healthy snack to school.
On behalf of the students and staff of Blackville School, a warm "Thank You" is extended to all involved in our third annual musical celebration, "Christmas Memories in Music." We are so pleased to be able to offer financial support to the Music Program as well as the Breakfast Program, and this is only possible because of the efforts of a large number of people. We extend our sincere appreciation to those who looked after ticket sales, who prepared the church, especially the sound and lights, and all of the students who performed so beautifully. In addition, we extend our gratitude to our guest performers and accompanists, who graciously agreed to share their talents and support our fundraising efforts. What heartwarming demonstration of Christmas Spirit at work in our community! And to all of you, who took the time to attend our concert, thank you one and all. From all of us to all of you we extend our wishes for a very Merry Christmas and Happy and Healthy New Year.
