  • Exciting Wellness Opportunity

    Hello Taft Parents & Guardians:

    I am happy to invite you to participate in a student and parent nutrition class offered by the Cedar Rapids Community School District.  The class will be facilitated by the Director of Food Service, Suzy Ketelsen.  Suzy will be providing food samples that are on the new school menu, teach strategies on how healthy eating and daily physical activity are linked to your child’s academic success, and engage parents and students in discussion about how to improve school wellness environments. 

    The event will take place on Wednesday, December 10th.  You will attend the session in which your child is a part of (7th hour students time frame- 1:18-2:02; 8th hour students time frame- 2:06-2:50).  If you have any questions on the upcoming event, please contact me.    

    We value your thoughts and would love to have you take part in your student’s well-being at school. 

    Warm regards,
    Jamie Sebring
    Wellness Teacher
