O.B. Whaley has had an awesome clothing closet known as the "Hanger" for years now. For the past couple months under the leadership of Nancy Keo, parents from our school have cleaned it up and organized it. Last week, racks of jackets and tables of jeans were put in front of our school and given to those that were interested in the items. We are grateful to the following parents that helped with this project: Isabel Marrufo, Nacciry Santana, Socorro Hernandez, Monica Lopez, Evelyn Valencia, and Adriana Chaverri. Thank you again, Parents!!!

O.B. Whaley is implementing a wonderful program for our students called Saturday Academy! Saturday Academy provides enrichment opportunities for all students while allowing our students to make-up missed days of attendance. Missed days of school also result in lost revenue to our schools. Saturday Academy allows us to recover lost learning as well as lost funding!

Rewards and incentives in schools play a powerful role in influencing student's food choices and life-‐long eating habits. It is the intent of the Child Nutrition Services Department to not only provide nutritious meals at breakfast and lunch service but to act as a resource in nutrition education for teachers and parents. CNS recommends that teachers and parents use celebrations, rewards and incentives that do not undermine the health of students and/or reinforce unhealthful eating habits. Non-‐food rewards and incentives should be used as the first choice to encourage positive behavior (game supplies, pencils, erasers, stickers and other small school supplies instead of food). If food is used as a reward or part of a celebration, healthy choices with appropriate portion sizes are required (see attachment for ideas). Likewise classroom parties should also be limited during the school.
