Apple for your Teacher Contest - Nominate Your Favorite Teacher
Plumbing and the Marietta
Daily Journal have teamed up to give local K-12 teachers working
in kindergarten through 12th grade a chance to win an iPad during
each week of the 2013-2014 school year. Parents and students can nominate
a teacher online. The Marietta Daily Journal Staff will select a
winner from the nominations received each week and will present that
winner with an iPad. A photo of the teacher and the students will
appear in the newspaper each week. This
contest is open to any teacher whose primary residence is within a
60 mile radius of the Marietta Daily Journal.
The district is in the process of updating the wellness policy (District Administrative Rule EEE-R Wellness Program) to
reflect new federal requirements (Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010). The new requirements include nutrition standards for all
foods sold in schools. Attached you will find a brief summary of the nutrition standards. Please email Mrs. Bowen at
Keeli.Bowen@cobbk12.org with any comments, questions, or feedback by March 26th, as these will
be shared with district level personnel. Click here to review the new standards . . .
As you have heard, we will no longer be
able to sell food from outside vendors at school next year
(Chick-fil-a, Bake Sales, etc.) as many of these things do not meet
the federal nutritional guidelines. (Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act
There is also a
proposed rule that this new federal guideline will
also impact classroom celebrations (birthdays, holidays, etc.). If
you have strong feelings either way, the USDA is seeking comments
regarding the proposal. The formal 60-day comment period is open now
through April 28th, 2014.
