Principal Moment

I have read in the news that some schools are starting to ban sugar from Valentine’s Day celebrations.  I’m all for healthy eating and watching what we eat, but I wonder what schools without holiday treats would be like.

“Happy Valentine’s Day, kids.  Here are your cupcakes.  They’re frosted with avocado.”

“Happy Valentine’s Day, boys and girls!  I dropped celery sticks into your boxes.”

“Happy Valentine’s Day, students.  What do you mean you don’t like tofu sugar cookies?”

Happy Valentine’s Day!  We do love our jobs and all that comes with it.  Elementary school is a great place to spend a day…even on holidays. 

Nebo Stakeholder Survey
