Hello Bulldog families.  

We hope that you had a great weekend.   Last week was very short and filled with new courses for students and make-up testing. We will continue with make-up testing on Monday, January 7 for CTE exams. For any questions or additional information about make-up exams, please email your student's teacher directly or our school Testing Coordinator (Mr. Whitehead) at mwhitehead@wcpss.net.

Please help us support our Teachers- Each monthly we recognize 5 Teachers for their hard work, dedication to students, and work toward our School Improvement goals. Teachers have been receiving monthly prizes of gift cards, presents, tickets to events, etc. Local businesses, individual parents and our SRMHS Administrative team have sponsored many of these teacher gifts. As of this month, SRMHS has recognized 23 teachers for their exemplar duty.   If you’d like to join and help donate to giving back to teachers, please see Ms. Kimberly Schlink (kschlink@wcpss.net) for more details.

Policy Review

WCPSS Food and Student Wellness Policy- https://boardpolicyonline.com/bl/?b=wake_new#&&hs=208234
Consistent with the Goals of School Nutrition Services, all foods available in the system’s schools during the school day that are offered to students should help promote student health, reduce childhood obesity, provide a variety of nutritional meals, and promote lifelong healthy eating habits.  All foods and beverages sold at school must meet the nutrition standards established by School Meal and Competitive Foods Standards, including the following:
1. School Lunch, Breakfast, and Snack Programs
Foods provided through the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, or After School Snack Programs must comply with federal and state nutrition standards.  The director of child nutrition shall ensure that school system guidelines for reimbursable meals are not less restrictive than regulations and guidelines issued for schools in accordance with federal law. 
2. Competitive Foods
All foods sold on school campuses in areas that are accessible to students during the school day (defined as the period from midnight through 30 minutes after the dismissal bell rings) in competition with the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs (“competitive foods”) must comply with the federal Smart Snacks in Schools standards.  Competitive foods include food, snacks, and beverages from a la carte menus, vending machines, and outside suppliers, as well as foods or beverages sold in school stores and at fund-raisers.  Vending machine sales also must comply with the requirements of G.S. 115C-264.2 and Eat Smart:  North Carolina’s Recommended Standards for All Foods in Schools. 
3. Other Foods Available on the School Campus During the School Day
Snacks provided on school campus during the school day should be commercially prepared and consistent with the Smart Snacks in Schools standards.
The board encourages alternative fundraising activities such as non-food items or physical activity. 

4. Food and Beverage Marketing
Food and beverage marketing on school campuses during the school day must meet federal and state Smart Snacks in School Nutrition standards.
