This year we are implementing Wellness Wednesdays in LCSD. Each quarter one of the administrators and their staff will choose a Location, theme, snacks and activities designed to bring all LCSD staff together in a relaxed environment. Our main goal is to encourage a sense of wellbeing, belonging and camaraderie among our K-12 staff. Healthy snacks will be served and both physical and mental activities will be planned such as wallyball, bowling, bingo, chess, etc. These events are currently schedules in Nov., Jan, April & June.
Assist any fundraising groups in finding compliant food to sell in school store, vending machines, etc. Assist PTA with a food and nutrition based fundraiser and provide nutrition education at two events per year.
We will do our best to prevent child hunger. We see hunger in classrooms and have knowledge that there is a lack of food in some homes. We are going to address this with teaming with or local WIC office and participating in the Weekend Food Program. We also will provide students with a no-cost snack if they are needed. Teachers can allow students to participate in snack by sending any hungry child to the lunchroom. Child is given a Smart Snack compliant snack. We are also going to utilize a Share Bucket in our Breakfast Program. Any student can pick prepackaged items out of our share bucket. This will start immediately.
Students are provided with various sporting equipment and a choice of activities during recess. Recess duty staff encourage students to get out and choose activities over sitting at tables and visiting. All students are given the full 15 minutes of lunch recess.
