Sadly, more than once, she found herself surprised when a child said he has no goal. They come to school because that's what kids do or because their parents will be angry with them if they don't.… Continue

So we… Continue

In her most recent post our Health TRACKer, Jen Goodall, tuned us into the dangers of too much high fructose corn syrup in our diet. We were so intrigued by it, we decided to devote our April Linkzine to "Dangerous Foods"
