Take a minute to thank a classified employee this week! At Malabon, these are the superstars who work one on one with our kids in small reading and math groups, answer the phones, cook our breakfasts and lunches, make sure the building is in tip top shape, run our library, bandage scraped knees, spend time with our kids at recess and so much more. At Malabon our building runs expertly because of the hard work of these wonderful people. We appreciate our support staff every day but on this National Classified Employee Appreciation Week we want to shout it even louder: THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!!!

Launch your day with breakfast
By Josie Riggall, Dietetic Intern, Nutrition Services
You’ve probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s true! Research shows that breakfast impacts our minds and bodies. Here are the best reasons to launch your day with a healthy breakfast:
- Energy – breakfast helps us wake up and refuel
- Brain power – breakfast improves attention, memory, and learning
- Health – breakfast keeps hunger at bay and helps us make healthier choices throughout the day
- Taste – it’s delicious!
A healthy breakfast includes a variety of nutritious foods such as fruit, whole grains, dairy, and healthy protein foods like nuts, seeds, and eggs. We welcome all Bethel students to eat breakfast with us at school at no charge! Think about how your family could fit breakfast into your morning routine and launch your day the right way. J

State School Report Card
As our students prepare for this spring’s state testing, here is a look at last year’s State School Report Card. As you examine the report card from the 2013-14 school year, know that our school is now introducing new math and English language arts curriculum. The current school year will also be longer than it has been in the last few years.
