This may include new web sites with great articles, things that are happening in the schools including Healthy Eating and Nutrition, kid-friendly sites or attachments, or any number of items we want to keep you up-to-date.
We feel strongly the more pertinent information we can share, the healthier our community will be. Our focus is not just with our most important group (the kids), but with our parents and our whole community.
We actively support and are members of the District Wellness Committee, the Fruit and Veggie More Matters Promotion, Farm to School Coalition, and the Corvallis School District Superintendant's Sustainability Steering Committee, just to name a few.
While this is time consuming to attend these meetings and the additional work requirements often attributed to each committee, this work is important toward building positive relationships and moving our department, district, and community to healthier goals.
That being said, the list to the left we hope to change on a semi-regular basis. Here you will find articles, additional web sites, and hopefully fun projects with the kids.
Prominent Food Recalls, especially those that have serious health repercussions, will be located on the School District homepage under the heading of "What's New at 509J?". We always want that information to be instantly available. Follow-up information, if necessary, will be located here.
