Dear Parents, Iron is important in our daily diets. Without enough iron, the body makes fewer red blood cells. This means tissues and organs won’t get the oxygen they need. Foods like meat, beans, and dark green leafy vegetables are great sources of iron. Iron is also added to some foods, such as cereals. It is important to encourage healthy eating at home, but your school lunch also supports healthy eating. The menu is infused with iron rich foods, such as fresh grilled chicken breasts available daily, beans and dark green leafy vegetables on The Farm Stand, and a variety of salads featuring romaine lettuce. This month’s Fruit and Vegetable of the Month are oranges and celery. Oranges are juicy and sweet and renowned for their concentration of vitamin C.

Since mid-November, over 90 4th and 5th graders had been diligently preparing to present “SHReK, The Musical, Jr.”.   The children rehearsed three times per week under the direction of Holly Raye. The children’s hard work payed off this past weekend as they performed to sold out crowds.  Franklin’s PTO hired Ms. Raye, a Broadway veteran, after a rigorous interview process this past Fall. Holly and her team, along with parent volunteers and a slew of super enthusiastic children  filled the gym with Ogre’s, Guards, Fiona’s, woodland creatures, fairytale creatures and whole bunch of fun!  It was a Big, Bright, Beautiful Shrek World! Take a look at more pictures under the Musical Tab on our Home page…
