PIE for PI Day
The Third Annual Parents
In Education (PIE) Breakfast was a huge success again this year. An amazing assortment of pies were served at
this "all you can eat" fundraising breakfast. You had to show up early this year (9:26 AM)
to get a bite of the variety of perfect pies; more than 120 people were served
in the first hour. For the first time,
PIE actually ran out of pie. I am
already planning on going next year and I will be sure to be there early and
bring pie to share.
PIE (Parents in Education)
is a dedicated parent group that is an important asset to the HPES community.
Please contact them if you are willing to help out in any way. Please contact them at email@example.com

From the Nurse
March is National Nutrition
Month. This is a great time to focus on what we eat
and maybe how we can improve it. There
are many resources on-line to help us gather information. Choosemyplate.gov is the website developed
and maintained by the United States Department of Agriculture. This is the same site that a few years ago
was called mypyramid.gov. The change
from the pyramid to the plate came in 2011 with an emphasis on making healthier
food choices. The plate is divided so
that half your plate is fruits and vegetables and the other half is grains and
protein. The dairy is represented by the
glass in the corner. I know that I have
days where I need to remind myself to fill that fruit and vegetable side of the
plate. They have printable information
sheets including 10 tips on many subjects.
Here is a summary of 10 tips to add more vegetables to your day.
1- Discover fast ways to cook
fresh and frozen vegetables.
2- Be ahead of the game, cut
up a batch of vegetables and pre-package them.
3- Choose vegetables rich in
4- Check the freezer aisle.
5- Stock up on veggies.
6- Make your garden salad glow
7- Sip on some vegetable soup.
8- While you’re out, ask for
an extra side of vegetables or salad.
9- Savor the flavor of
10- Try something new.
