We are starting March with lots of celebrating: a happy birthday treat for Dr. Seuss's March 1 birthday is quickly followed by some tropical beachy breakfast dishes featured during National School Breakfast Week March 4 - 8. Have breakfast at school and try a Point Break Potato Bowl, a Big Wave Waffle Stick, or a Shark Attack Yogurt Cup, among other new treats. And look for some special celebrity breakfast servers in your school cafeteria.

Parent and Family Engagement Month Contest - Week 3 is Here! 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦🎉 We're thrilled to kick off our annual competition, and you won't want to miss out on the fun and fantastic prizes we have in store! Here's what's in store for Week 3: •Night 1: Use this fun conversation starter to get your family talking about the talking about the Thanksgiving holiday and planning for future holidays: Imagine a future Thanksgiving. Tell that story. How will your descendants celebrate? What stories will they tell? •Night 2: Celebrate the holidays with a game of “Would You Rather?” Try these holiday questions and take turns making up new ones. Would you rather... -Eat only turkey or only mashed potatoes for an entire year? -Watch a parade or perform in one? -Wear an ugly sweater every day for a year, or wear antlers in every school picture? -Have an annoying song stuck in your head, or have to sing one in public? -Eat pumpkin pizza or pepperoni pie? -Listen to holiday music nonstop for 24 hours, or dress like a turkey in public? -Celebrate Christmas on the moon or on Mars? -Go to school in a boat or in a sleigh? •Night 3: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Activity. Use this activity to help “cool down” and regulate. Each family member takes turns naming: -5 things they can see -4 things they can touch -3 things they can hear -2 things they can smell -1 thing they can taste, OR 1 thing they would like to eat right now. -For an extra boost of calm, try encouraging family members to take one slow, deep breath before sharing, speaking in a whisper, or sitting as still as possible while they share. •Night 4: This is a great conversation starter for sharing old family traditions and for planning new ones: What is your favorite family tradition, and why? •Night 5: Cookie Face Race. This hilarious cookie face race challenge doesn’t have to be played with cookies – any flat-bottomed food item, like crackers, bread, slices of cheese, or dried fruit strips, can work! Each player tips his or her head back. Place a cookie (or other chosen food item) on each person’s forehead. Set a timer for one minute and say “On your mark, get set, go!” See who can get the cookie from their forehead to their mouth first – but no hands! Players can only use their facial muscles to move their cookies. If you missed any activities from Week 1 or Week 2, you still have time to make those up!!
