Picture of fruits & veggies surrounding the words Eat More Fruits & Veggies!Most people know that eating fruits and vegetables is important for good health, but most of us still aren’t getting enough. This September, let’s participate in Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month. Eating a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and fruits can help you lower your risk for heart disease and some types of cancer, maintain or reach a healthy weight, and keep your body strong and active. Here are some ideas to help you and your family fit more fruits and vegetables into your day. Try keeping a bowl of fruit handy where the whole family can see it, cut up fruits and veggies ahead of time so they’re ready for quick, healthy snacks, and challenge your family to try a new veggie or fruit every week. Remember, eating more fruits and veggies can be fun and worth it!

                                                                                  Hello Hornet Dads and Honorary Dads!
Icon for All Pro Dads - has a red and white football surrounded by swirls.
It is time for the first All-Pro Dads (APD) breakfast of the new school year! Our APD breakfast is a monthly gathering of “dads” (dads, grandfathers, uncles, etc.) and their kids to have breakfast together, have fun, and engage in international conversation. We host this breakfast on the 3rd Tuesday of most months. This is a free event, but space is limited.

APD breakfast – Tuesday, September 19th at 7:00 a.m. in the Howard Hall Library/Media Center.

An APD breakfast looks like this:

7:00 a.m.: Breakfast with our kids in the library/media center. Chick-fil-A chicken biscuits will be provided courtesy of Crossroads North Church.
7:15 a.m.: Activity/conversation time; this month’s theme is RESPECT.
7:40 a.m.: Meeting wrap-up, and you can walk your child/children to their classrooms.
 
We would love for you to join us! RSVP at the link below. Attendance is capped at 60, so sign up today!
 
SPORTS EQUIPMENT: There are about 750 children that attend HHES. At recess, they need some outlets for their energy. If you are able, please bring in one or two (or twenty!) kick balls, basketballs, jump-ropes, etc. Bring them with you to the breakfast on the 19th (or drop them off in the front office if you are not able to make it to the breakfast).
