Health Smart Campaign
Today’s Health Smart Reminder: Your body converts food to glucose, the simplest form of sugar, which it uses for energy. Blood glucose levels must stay within a normal range so the body doesn’t think it’s starving. Healthful snacking helps to maintain normal glucose levels (without spikes and dips) and prevents a nasty spike-and-crash cycle.
Seniors: order your class shirts by tomorrow. See Caroline, Abbey, or Alex for the form and turn the form and $15 in to Mr. Bice.
Words of Wisdom
Saturday, April 22 was Earth Day – begun in 1970 to celebrate our planet’s environment and raise public awareness about pollution – this day is observed worldwide with rallies, conferences, outdoor activities, and service projects. It was once said that we do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children. In other words, what we do to the Earth, today, impacts future generations. So, think of ways you can make the Earth a better place and then, act on those thoughts – pick up litter, recycle, walk instead of drive; plant a garden; don’t waste water; and turn off the lights when you leave the room. With something to think about, make it a great day – the choice is yours.
