Roberta Maynard's Classroom: Welcome to Second Grade!

Partnering with Parents to Enrich the Student Learning Experience



We have snack at 10:20 every morning.  It is also important for students to have breakfast before school.

Please make sure your child has a healthy snack that will provide lasting energy to enhance their efforts in the classroom.  

Great Ideas: Provide lasting energy

  • fruit or vegetables
  • crackers/cheese,
  • cheese stick
  • cereal
  • trail mix
  • salami stick

Foods to avoid: Provide little energy. 

  • cake
  • cookies
  • marshmallow treats 
  • sports drinks
