Students at Andersen are learning about healthy eating from the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. Everyone at school receives a healthy snack every day. This program is showing students how to make good choices about the food they eat. The fresh fruit and vegetables are changing the way we think about snacks. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Programs delivers small bags of natural snacks for each student. Carrots, pineapple, pumpkin or squash slices, sweet potato pieces and watermelon chunks are just some of the healthy choices we snack on every day. I never thought of snacking on raw cauliflower or pea pods before. We know that those fruits and vegetables keep us healthy and ready to learn.

Gifted and Talented Youth Week
Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed November 2-8, 2014, to be Gifted and Talented Youth Week in Minnesota. In addition to recognizing the unique potential of gifted and talented youth, seize the opportunity to laud the efforts of the parents, educators, counselors and psychologists with whom they work. Their sustained efforts, coupled with the organized advocacy of the Minnesota Council for Gifted and Talented (MCGT) and the Minnesota Educators of Gifted and Talented (MEGT), help make our state one in which gifted learners are honored and valued.
