entitled "What's For Lunch" with guest speakers Tracy
Barker of the district food program; Jan Levesque,
School Nurse at MSS; Elizabeth Ridinger, RN, parent as
well as Dr. Susan Lynch who will discuss childhood
obesity. Please come with your questions. We hope to
see you there!

We are looking for suggestions for family nights
this winter. If you have any thoughts, please email
