Read to Ride program bicycles with helmets.The Knights of Pythias is dedicated to the cause of universal peace and is pledged to the promotion of understanding among men of good will as the surest means of attaining it. 

The local lodge sponsors the Read to Ride program.  They do this because they want to encourage students to develop the love of reading at an early age. At our school students in the first and second grades can participate in this program by checking out books, reading them, and taking Accelerated Reading (AR) quizzes.  The Read to Ride program encourages students to read and to be more active. This program supports reducing childhood obesity while promoting literacy. The girl and boy who have the highest AR points will be given a brand new bicycle at the schools’ final awards program.  Each winner also receives a helmet with their bicycle.

In addition on May 22nd, the Fayetteville Police sent representatives to our school to teach students about safety and bicycling.  Each student who participated in the program received a bag and a helmet.  Fayetteville Police provide bicycle helmets for elementary school students.

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!

Trying different things can appear challenging such as being a new student at a school or taking a class for the first time. You have to be patient when introducing new things. The same goes for food. It may take more than a few tries for a child to accept an unfamiliar item. Check out these Resources for picky eaters and Handling a “choosy” eater.
