Good news. SBS has been selected to participate in the state Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program again
this year. Twice a week, students and staff will enjoy a featured fruit or vegetable for a snack. The idea
is to learn more about healthy food choices, while fostering an eagerness to try new taste sensations in
a fun, shared experience with their classmates and teachers. Next week, it’s carrots and Asian
pears. I’ve attached the flyer so that you can continue the conversation with your children at home.

Student directories for the current school year 2022-2023 are available. Please find a digital version
attached to this email. Hard copies are available upon request.

The SBS Board of Directors will host a Cheers & Beers fall fundraising event at Spacecat Brewing

for the raffle, ie. gift certificates, jewelry, etc. Please complete the attached form for donations.

The fifth and sixth grade classes and their teachers will be in Saco, Maine from Monday, Nov. 7 through
Thursday, Nov. 10 to participate in an ecology school trip where they will have the opportunity to study
a variety of ecosystems and explore sustainable farming and food practices.
