Daily Schedule Change in the Junior & Senior High:

Due to this year’s weather issues and the possibility of more, we will be making a small schedule change that will only affect students and teachers in the Jr/Sr High School.

 

Starting on Monday, March 25th, and for the remainder of the school year, ALL students in grades 7-12 will have breakfast from 7:50-8:07am and first hour will be held from 8:10-8:54am, with the rest of the day staying the same.

 

By making this change it will allow us to add approximately 3.5 hours for the year.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

 

Viterbo dietetic students, Brittani Williams and Natalie Schmit, will be hosting a cooking demonstration on Monday, March 25th from 6:30-7:30pm in the high school cafeteria. The theme of the cooking demonstration is “Easy, No Worry Meals.” Ms. Williams and Ms. Schmit will be demonstrating how to properly use a crockpot and some of the items that can be cooked in one. After the demonstration, they will be conducting a nutrition related game that you and your children can participate in. It will be a fun way for the kids to learn about nutrition while being able to release some energy. Are you interested in learning a new way to cook? Are you looking for a fun activity for your children on a Monday night? Then the cooking demo is something you will want to check out! Finally, after Ms. Williams and Ms. Schmit get finished with the activity, everyone will be eating! If free food and fun hasn’t already sparked your interest, there will be a raffle for all cooking demo participants. If you join us, your name will go in for a brand-new crockpot and a cookbook full of delicious recipes.

 

If you are interested in joining us, please contact Brittani Williams via email at bwilli63844@viterbo.edu with your name and the number of people attending by March 22nd. We would love to see you there!
