Smart Snacks in Schools
Representatives of PTOs and booster clubs were invited to attend a workshop on Friday, February 21, to learn more about the nutrition standards of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The workshop was held at 2:00 p.m. in the Board room at the district office (1000 Brookhaven Drive, Aiken, SC 29803). The Smart Snacks in Schools implementation guidelines will bring about changes in the types of food items that can be sold during school hours. Since our parent organizations often sell food items to raise funds to support the schools, we want them to be aware of the new guidelines. (board presentation) (press release)
