Salad With a Side of "Wonder"

Thanks to Harvest of the Month from the Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention (N.E.O.P) program our teachers were able to feed a fresh salad to hundreds of students on Friday, with many coming back for seconds. Here, students are enjoying salad while reading the novel, Wonder.

Finding Hope Through Anne Frank's Window

From her only window to the outside world, Anne Frank could see the sky, birds and a majestic chestnut tree. "As long as this exists," Anne wrote in her diary, "how can I be sad?"  In preparation for their trip to the Museum of Tolerance and visit to the Anne Frank exhibit, 6th and 7th grade history and language arts students reflected on Anne Frank and her quotes on how the view from her window changed.  They chose a spot in the garden, wrote about their feelings on what they saw in their "window" and will revisit their spot and feelings in late spring.
