DISTRICT INSIDER - APRIL EDITION
RCN - Tuesday and Sunday at 6pm on Channel 4 and 1004HD
SERVICE ELECTRIC - Friday at 5:30 pm on Channel 2
New Bethany Ministries is a finalist for a grant from the the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation. They needed to create a short video for the grant and they specifically asked our students to help. New Bethany has given our students unlimited valuable experiences and opportunities and I would love to be able to help support them with this grant. I'm not sure if it is possible (or even allowable) but is there a way we could share this with the district or the community? Voting for New Bethany can be done once daily from May 8-19th. If teachers and administrators combined with the community to vote for New Bethany we could potentially secure a grant that will ensure the expansion of New Bethany's food bank. I am so proud of the students and the partnership they have formed with New Bethany Ministries- you have to check out the link to the video!!!! http://www.lehighvalleyfoundation.org/grants/50th-anniversary-spark-grants/spark-grants-food-housing
WEEKLY NUTRITION and FITNESS TIPS
By: Michelle Martucci RD, LDN
Kiwifruit is an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K as well as a very good source of copper and dietary fiber. It is also a good source of vitamin E, potassium, folate, and manganese.
Mindfulness and Self Care
Mindfulness is about being aware of the present moment. Learning to be mindful brings numerous benefits. So much so, in fact, that mindfulness training is being done in more and more schools with great results. Even the Apple Health app has a whole section for tracking mindfulness and a list of recommended apps. A quick Google search for “mindfulness apps” brings back a long list of simple, easy programs that almost anyone can try. Here are just a few of the benefits of regular mindfulness practice: may improve grades, fights insomnia and increases sleep, helps problem solving, improves athletic performance, and changes the physical structure of the brain.
