These students worked hard over several months to be able to play a concert with an hour's worth of music. After they performed they enjoyed a personal tour of the Capitol.

Healthy Tips from Michelle Martucci, RD, LDN

Dietitian for Bethlehem Area School District

The ABC Tips - Q

Quinoa is a complete protein, which means it contains all nine amino acids our body cannot make. Quinoa contains fiber, which promotes good digestion and will help you stay full longer. It contains a high amount of lysine, which is needed for tissue growth and repair. Quinoa is a great source of antioxidants, which helps to prevent some cancers. In addition, quinoa contains heart healthy fats, which are known to be cardio-protective. There are 120 varieties of quinoa. Try quinoa as a side dish, in stuffed peppers, or add it to a cold salad.

April 27, 2019 — 11 am until 3 pm

We have started planning for our 13th annual Cops ’n’ Kids Celebration of Reading . . . and the Arts and Sciences, and we have a great deal to celebrate!

With the help of our entire community, the award-winning Cops ‘n’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program has reached a remarkable milestone, distributing more than 940,000 free books thus far.

This will be our "March to the Millionth" event!

To celebrate this accomplishment, and the children of our community, we invite you to join us (rain or shine) for a day of food, fun, family, crafts, entertainment, laughter—and, of course, literacy.

Please mark your calendars—and thank you for helping us to “connect kids and community through literacy.”
