November Dare to Excel Newsletter 

When weekends, school breaks, and summer are added together, kids spend many hours outside of school walls.  How this time is spent affects their growth and development, as well as their success at school.  Iowa State University Extension and Outreach offers a monthly newsletter during the school year, September through May, to help parents help their children become better learners. 

How well kids do in school has been linked to how well they eat — if they are getting enough food and getting the kinds of foods they need to be healthy.  Learn more about how nutrition affects a child’s ability to learn at school and what parents can do to help kids succeed in this month’s  issue of the Dare to Excel newsletter.

The elementary art/makerspace is in need of some supplies for future projects at various grade levels.  There will be more items needed throughout the year. Your help in providing any of the listed materials would be greatly appreciated.  If you feel you have other items which may benefit our program, please contact me at  blangner@svjags.org   or  call the school @ 467-5700.
