Gator Gab – Week at a Glance for Week #28 – Apr. 1st-5th, 2019

Below is a peak at some important information items followed by our Week ahead …

Nutrition for Learning

Classrooms are better place to learn when students have access to the food and nutrition they need.  As you are aware, Our Lady of Grace is supported by the Nutrition for Learning program every morning.  Donations of food from local companies and monetary donations allow this organization to offer this valuable resource to your children.  On Monday, we are sending home postcards on behalf of the program and asking for a $2 donation.  We are collecting donations just this week so will end on Friday, April 5th.  All money raised directly impacts our school’s Nutrition for Learning program! We are so blessed that each and every student has the opportunity to have breakfast each day if they are hungry! Thank you for your support and thanks NFL (Nutrition For Learning)!
