May 3 - AP Tests


Apr. 24

May 3 is a holiday and there is no school and no classes. That day will be the first day of AP tests. Students taking AP tests should arrive before their test begins and leave when done. Note, the cafeteria will be closed on May 3.

Support for students taking AP tests


Apr. 24

We can do much to help increase thinking abilities and clarity of mind before taking a high-stakes standardized test. Please encourage our testing students to eat a varied and healthy diet including proteins and vegetables. It is best to stay away from high carbohydrate, high sugar foods like soda or instant noodles. These spike insulin and make one feel good, then poor and tired. Adequate sleep is another important factor in successful test taking. Students need to be well-rested before their tests. It is encouraged, for several days before the test(s), students sleep early and rest well, allowing their minds to work better. Finally, reassure students that their value is much greater than their testing outcomes!

Your child's nutrition


Mar. 14

During this period of seasonal change, nutrition is one of the important steps to keep your immune system healthy.

National Nutrition Month is an annual campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that takes place during the month of March every year.

This year's theme is "Personalize Your Plate." There is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition and health. It may be more difficult right now to know if children are getting the proper nutrition because of a variety of factors such as skipping meals.

As parents, we need to be on the lookout for possible signs that students are not getting the proper nutrition. Here is some helpful information from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that can help your consideration for your children's balanced menu and healthy eating habits. The resources are available in multiple languages as well from the following link:
