School Resumes 11/27/17
An employee from Elementary, Middle, High, and one of our Alternative sites are being recognized for Faculty Focus Friday!
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides all children at McSweeny with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables during the school day. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options. The goal of FFVP is to create a healthier school environment by providing healthier food choices, expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables, increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption and make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health! This program is seen as an important catalyst for change in efforts to combat childhood obesity by helping children learn more healthful eating habits. The FFVP introduces school children to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have had the opportunity to sample!
McSweeny Elementary School was awarded the Bronze level medal for their excellence in measurement of fidelity as well as for efforts in implementing the core features of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
There is no school Friday, November 10th in honor of Veteran's Day.
