R.C. LaPerche School to participate in the

“Is Your Hair Made Of Donuts?” Statewide Read on March 11th


“Over 75,000 students at more than 200 schools, libraries, youth programs, and health centers throughout Rhode Island will participate in the Statewide Read event of RI author Joy Feldman’s children’s book, “Is Your Hair Made Of Donuts?” on March 11th, 2013 (March 12, 2013 in Warwick).  The event recognizes March as National Nutrition Month and Feldman says, “this is an act of solidarity on behalf of the health of our children.  With the addition of celebrity readers, we have created a unique event of synergy in celebrating good food and good health for our children, and for ourselves”.

            The objective of the campaign is to educate children on the importance of healthy eating, motivate children to celebrate their health, and to create a community of readers who will advocate for optimal childhood health.

            The story will be read during lunch periods that day. “Is Your Hair Made Of Donuts?” is a fun and imaginative story that helps children learn the importance of healthy food choices to help build a healthy body.  The book speaks to children ages 4 – 10 to help them learn that there is a major construction project going on that lasts for a lifetime.

            Our Aramark Food Services Director, Genevieve Ciullo, has also planned a special fruit and veggie salad as part of the lunch menu that day to fit the “My Plate” nutrition model that illustrates new national nutrition guidelines.  Children will also receive a “My Plate” coloring sheet to help reinforce this nutrition lesson.

            Please encourage your child to participate by ordering school lunch on Monday, March 11th.                                

            Please contact Marylyn Sepe or Barbara Furtado with any questions about our school program. You can also request more information at ISYOURHAIRMADEOFDONUTS.COM – JOYFELDMAN.COM
