The survey is short and will take just a few minutes to complete. Take the survey now! http:// go.sjusd.org/survey Need more motivation? Watch this video created by Gunderson students (and featuring students from Gunderson, Burnett and Terrell) that explains why your voice is important: http://vimeo.com/86366067 The District will use the survey results as a starting point for community discussions.

I also wanted to take a moment to remind you of the School Board’s policy about sweet treats at school. We are limited to 1 treat day a month only, and when you factor in holiday celebrations that doesn’t leave a lot of leeway for special treat days. I have been trying to reduce the number of food rewards we give (pizza parties, ice cream treat rewards) and focusing on healthy snacks or alternatives to food (free dress days). One of the reasons we are doing this is because childhood obesity is a major problem in the US. As a person who has wrestled with her weight all her life, I would LOVE to be able to help our children avoid that same problem. I know that for many of you a birthday at school needs to be celebrated with cupcakes or sweets of some kind. I was raised that same way, and did the same for my girls. Here’s where I need your help. Please do not bring birthday treats to school unless they are non-food items. There…. I said it. Stickers, pencils, balloons, erasers, little games- all of these can say “Happy Birthday” without adding unnecessary empty calories to our children’s diets. Let’s work together to help Hacienda children be healthy now, and later in their lives.
Hats off to our Art Night coordinator, Penny Sisley, and all her wonderful helpers who put together an awesome Mardi Gras art experience for everyone. I saw some pretty cool projects being created, and lots of smiles on faces while busy at work. Congratulations for a very successful event!
