Wellness

Our classroom is following the direction of Grand Blanc Community School’s¬†Local Wellness Policy with¬†regards to classroom birthday/holiday treats. This plan is part of a state mandate that requires all school districts to have a wellness plan in place. It is believed through policy, school programs, and role modeling behavior that school districts can do their part in promoting healthy eating and physical activity among school children.

Food ideas for treats:

  • Fresh fruits (apple dippers, oranges, peaches, etc.)
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Cheez-Its/Goldfish
  • Fruit cups/dried fruits
  • String cheese
  • Animal crackers
  • Graham crackers (e.g., Teddy Graham packets)
  • Carrot sticks (other fresh veggies)
  • Applesauce
  • Sun Chips
  • Popcorn
  • Fruit muffins
  • Yogurt cups
  • Jell-O/pudding cups
  • Rice cakes
  • Fruit popsicles
  • Sherbet cups
  • Granola/cereal bars
  • Chips & salsa
  • Fruit snacks
  • Trail mix

Non-food ideas for treats:

  • Design pencils
  • Eraser tops
  • Stickers
  • Pencil sharpeners
  • Art crafts
  • Inexpensive toys (dollar store)

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and/or concerns about the new wellness policy.
