Fire up Your Feet
Walk and bike to school day is Wednesday, May 6th but don’t let that be your only activity for the month. Malabon is participating in the Fire up Your Feet Challenge throughout the entire month of May. All physical activity counts and the more parents’ staff and students we have tracking activity, the better the chance of turning that activity into money for our school. In October our school was able to win $1900 to use towards physical activity and nutrition for our school. We have already used some of this to purchase a double Dutch jump rope kit and help fund our 4th and 5th grade track. Now we have the opportunity to win again. How can you help? Parents can register themselves and their students to track activity at www.fireupyourfeet.org
OR just fill out an activity tracker, which will soon be coming home, for your student for each week in May. If you have any questions please call Norene Walters at 302-480-2453.
Every year our PTO holds a raffle at our Carnival. This is a fun even for everyone! Do you have a small business or work for a company who would like to help our school? In order to make this event a success again this year, please click on this Parents Donation Request Letter to see how you can help!

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
