There will be some changes at Johnson STEAM Academy around birthday snacks and classroom celebrations.  We are working to encourage healthy eating habits and were named a Blue Zones School last year as part of the Governor’s Healthiest State Initiative.  In addition, the District Wellness Policy spells out the guidelines to be followed in all CRCSD schools.  The following changes are taking place this year:

1.We are asking that families do NOT send food items to be celebrate a student’s birthday – instead consider sharing items like pencils, stickers, or purchase a book to add to the classroom library in your child’s name.

2.Classroom celebrations take place 3 times a year:  one in the fall, one in the winter, and one in February.  Healthy snacks will be served (please see attached).

Thank you for helping us to encourage healthy eating habits for our all of our students!
