tabs box bottom border

Students at Liberty Elementary School are going bananas over a new fruit and veggie bar in their cafeteria. Stocked with fresh, seasonal produce, from apples and grapes to broccoli and carrots, the bar is giving students at the school healthier options at lunchtime.

In effort to keep the school community moving in a healthy direction, Liberty Elementary School Parent CONNECT* is happy to introduce a free nutritional series for students and their families.

Joining forces with Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) and its Eat Smart NY program, Liberty Elementary will welcome CCE Nutrition Educator Vincent LoCascio to lead families through the following workshops:

Monday, Nov. 28 | 8 – 9 a.m.
Healthy food that tastes great and doesn’t take long to prepare

Monday, Dec. 5 | 8 – 9 a.m.
Eating healthy on a budget and making it a part of your families’ lifestyle

Monday, Dec. 12 | 8 – 9 a.m.

Physical activity as a key to living well; tips for losing weight

Monday, Dec. 19 | 8 – 9 a.m.
Rethink your drink; how much fat is in that?

All classes will take place in the elementary school’s adaptive gym and will conclude with a free raffle of children’s winter weather attire, toys, and more. Healthy snacks will be provided and all participants will receive free cooking utensils.

*Ask any elementary school parent about Parent CONNECT and their eyes light up with recognition. LES Parent CONNECT is a committee comprised of faculty, staff and parents dedicated toward improving the school – home – comment connection. Parent CONNECT has brought many events to the elementary school, including the annual Valentine’s Day Dance and back-to-school kick off. What parents may not know about Parent CONNECT is that they also cast a wide net around social, emotional and wellness services. Parent CONNECT also holds educational workshops on homework help, behavioral needs, relaxation techniques and nutrition.
