Often when we hear of allergies we think of fall sniffles and watery eyes. While those may be an annoyance for many, one type of allergy less commonly talked about, and less understood, is that of food allergies.

In her second year of competing, Krista Johansen took first place for her edible architecture.  Last year’s creation was a mock-up of Commercial Street that took second place honors.  This year’s creation was started a week before the turkey and pumpkin pie were served on Thanksgiving Day.  For the average gingerbread house, starting this early would mean there was plenty of time to work on it here or there.  But Johansen’s elaborate design required her to work about four hours daily to complete it in time for judging.

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act was approved by the federal government and is now law.  Morgan School District, and many other districts in the state, participate in the national school lunch program and are required to comply with the new standards and guidelines set by the government.  The new lunch menus are now aligned with this law. We will be offering more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and fewer desserts.  Students participating in the school lunch program must choose at least one fruit or vegetable, plus two other food items.  They may also choose to take all of the food items offered which would include both the fruit and vegetable.  This change will help ensure that students will have on their tray a healthy, balanced meal everyday that meets federal government guidelines.

Over the river and through the woods, to grandmother’s house we go...! Who has never recited that little song/ poem at least once as a kid, or shared it with your kids over the holidays, on your way to your family Thanksgiving Celebration? It’s been a classic with my family, and every thanksgiving as I look at the yellowing landscape along the way, or the dusting of snow covering fields, I think of this song, and what an opportunity it is to gather! We may not be gathering harvest to serve at the table, (though some of you may have grown your own pumpkins for pumpkin pie), but the gathering of family and friends!
