We are excited to bring the YMCA’s Nutrition in Action program to New Branches! This program will meet with our Elementary students six times, starting at the end of March, to teach our students about MyPlate, the importance of fruits and vegetables, and healthy snack options. The best part is – the students get to try these healthy snacks each class! Also incorporated into each lesson are several learning activities, which are all designed based on the Core Standards. This program not only challenges students to choose healthier options but their families as well!
Every year, NBCA participates in Jump Rope For Heart (JRFH). JRFH is a nation-wide fundraiser done mostly in schools to raise money for heart disease, especially in youth.
In the 2015/2016 we raised a little over $900. This year, our school goal is $1,000.00!
Our fundraiser will run Friday, March 3rd through Friday, March 24th.
Each class will receive fundraising envelopes to send home. Your friends and family can also use the link to donate!
