HEALTHY CONNECTIONS – The Breakfast Club – Your mother always told you that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. Well, she was right. Children do better in school when they have a good breakfast. Getting children ready, yourself ready. . .it’s a lot to do in the morning. However, the first meal of the day does not have to be a hassle. It can be quick, fun, and eaten on the run if necessary. Here are a few tips for you and your family to break the fast: 1) a peanut butter and banana sandwich and glass of milk is a favorite of young ones. It gives them calcium, protein, and one serving of fruit. 2) Top cold or hot cereal with fresh or canned fruit. 3) Serve 100% fruit or vegetable juice. 4) A cereal bar and milk make a great, quick, on the run breakfast when you don’t have time for a sit-down meal. 5) Yogurt in a “to-go” tube is a good way to get a quick dose of calcium. 6) Bagels with fruit spread or low-fat cream cheese are great on the go. 7) Make egg sandwiches the night before, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and microwave on warm slightly in the morning for a quick breakfast.
As mentioned previously, this month our school is participating in the Delaware School Climate Survey for students and parents. A letter with information was sent home last week. We are asking that you complete the survey to help us learn what parents and guardians think about our school. Your thoughts and opinions are very important. To access the HOME version of the DE School Climate Survey by desktop or mobile device, please visit www.delawarepbs.org and you’ll see the link at the top of the home page. Please contact us at 674-9080 if you have questions.

2017-2018 CR SCHOOL BELL SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED
The State of Delaware is experiencing a severe bus driver shortage
and the Caesar Rodney School District is taking proactive steps to keep our buses running.
With the alignment of bell times for both the secondary and elementary schools,
we have dramatically increased our efficiency as each bus can service both sets of schools.
Double runs means fewer drivers are needed and cuts transportation costs as well.
Furthermore, the bell time alignment allows for more middle school students
to attend high school classes for distance learning experiences.
The change was made out of necessity - primarily due to bus routes being refused
or dropped by our bus contractors and their inability of finding bus drivers.
After a community committee studied the issue, a decision was made to change start
times so that we were still able to provide transportation services to our families.
Early Dismissal Times are TBA. Please share. Thank you.
6:00 PM PLC Meeting at District Office
