When I was in school, I remember any reason to get out of class was exciting, especially when it was as a class, or entire school population! Popcorn, veggies n’ dip and all your friends watching Toy Story 2 sitting together on the gym floor… for kids, it doesn’t get much better than that!
Last week, John T. Tuck’s snack day fell on the same day as winter carnival movie day. Since a snack would be offered during the movie, we decided to combine them! And oh what fun it was! The veggies and dip were served standing upright in individual dixie cups. Kirkland brand Ceasar dressing from Costco was the dip at the bottom with cute little carrots and cucumbers poking out the top. Easy for little hands to carry and eat while sitting with friends (sorry no photo). On their way into the gym they were also offered individual bags of Kernel’s butter salt popcorn. Always a favorite!
BIG kudos to the grades 6-8 students who were my incredible helpers! You were efficient, energetic and eager! I really appreciated all your hard work. And the most impressive part was your awareness to what needed to be done and doing it …. sweeping up the popcorn without being asked – amazing!
And of course… to my steadfast Healthy Snack volunteers – as always, you make any little bump in the road seem like nothing at all. John T. Tuck’s Healthy Snack Program truly is a community. How lucky are we!!?
