“Wednesday, January 22 was the launch of ‘Fabulous Fruit Day,’ and all students and staff were invited to bring an orange fruit or vegetable for their recess snack. Those participating were allowed to wear orange grub day clothes.

“Students and staff also greeted commuters on Frog Lane and Palmetto Road wishing them a ‘Happy Orange Day.’ Finally, Ms. Marie Beach from the Department of Health visited the school this morning to have our staff and students participate in aerobic exercises before they went off to begin their day in the classroom.
