President Obama signed into law the Healthy Hunger Free Act of 2010. This was done to help combat the epidemic of childhood obesity as well as the urgent problem of childhood hunger.
What does this mean for your school meals? More healthy lean proteins, whole grains, multiple fruit and vegetable offerings!

Ms. Zimak's ELA 11 class will be taking a field trip to the Bay Mills Indian Community in Brimley, Michigan on January 18th-19th. The purpose of this trip is to provide students with the historical context surrounding Native American/Indigenous culture. Many students are unfamiliar with Native American culture, history, social issues and heritage. Students will gain a better understanding of political, social, and economic issues that Native Americans face today, and how these issues can be understood in the greater context of American history. Thus far, students have developed preliminary research questions about Native American ways of life, current and past. This trip will serve as an additional, first person source for the final research project that the students will complete by the end of first semester. While on the trip, students will be attending a tour of the Bay Mills community, having an educational discussion panel with community members, attending a drum ceremony and touring the Bay Mills Community College.
