KIDS’ LUNCHES MADE EASY!
From Lisa Foo:
I recently received an offer to try a new service for families who like the convenience of not having to pack their children’s lunches, but who are looking for a healthier/fresher alternative to cafeteria food. The meals are delivered directly to your home with no delivery charge. There’s also no rule saying you can’t serve the food in your own home or pack it for your own lunch at work. . .
Through the link below they’re running a promo now that (depending on what upgrades you might choose) essentially lets you try them for free for one week. In the interest of full disclosure, they might send me a small thank you credit toward a future order if someone signs up using my link, though if you’d prefer feel free of course to just sign up straight through their website if you’re interested. Free food is good food, so I just wanted to pass this on : ) Enjoy!
My kids and I love Red Apple Lunch! Give yourself a holiday break and enjoy $25 towards your first week. http://redapplelunch.refr.cc/
WHERE’S THE (GRASSFED) BEEF?
PERFORMANE FOR KIDS, BY KIDS:
We will be collecting disposable diapers of all sizes (including individual diapers, open bags, and swim diapers) for donation to help local low income families. There will be a collection box by the front desk from now until Friday December 16th. Donations will be sent to the Diaper Depot in Waltham. Please note that we will plan to collect donations of pre-owned cloth diapers at the end of the school year, though if anyone has a large supply of cloth diapers that they’d like to donate sooner please contact Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Diaper Need Facts:
● One out of three families struggle to buy diapers.
● Diapers can cost up to $100 per month per child and cannot be purchased through government assistance programs such as WIC and food stamps.
● Families with an inadequate supply of clean diapers may attempt to wash and reuse disposable diapers, keep their children in soiled diapers for extended periods, and be denied participation in day care (preventing parents from working).
Thanks for your support!!
DON’T THROW THAT OUT YET….
CLEAN OUT YOUR HOME WHILE HELPING CNS CLASSROOMS!!!
CNS teachers are always on the lookout for interesting and unique recyclables of all kids. Before you place household trash in your recycling bins, consider if they might have a second life as inspiration for a preschool art or construction project. Please keep this in mind year round, and especially as you look at your leftover holiday gift wrapping/packaging. Please bring any donated materials to the storage area in the studio. No styrofoam please!
