As a teacher, I am asking for your help with snacks. It is very difficult to teach your child if they do not have a snack consistently at school. Our snacktime is exactly at 9:50 every morning after pe and the kids can’t wait to eat after 30 minutes of running and exercising. Those children who are coming to school with cookies, chips, candy, and crackers are eating empty calories that are full of sugar. These snacks are all empty calories with absolutely no value. It’s very hard to teach when a child is just full of sugar because they cannot concentrate. It’s a real problem in schools all over the country. If your child is packing their own snack, you need to supervise what they are taking to school. I cannot do my job effectively with your student if we are not working together on providing healthy alternatives for snacks. Please , if you send a package of cookies, also send some fruit or vegetables. Thank you to Gabrielle and Kandi for your help with snacks this week. By the way, when I was absent the substitute Mrs. Kodner, who has taught for more than 30 years, wrote that the children’s behavior was a delight. She wants me to call her again. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am when people compliment our class. Thanks for all your support. Please comment on this post to help other parents.
