Timberland Corp. ~ Work Team at Traip

The Timberland Corp. spent the day building the infrastructure of the sustainability garden at Traip Academy.  The team has done an outstanding job!  We are very grateful that they selected our worksite for their employee "day of service".  THANK YOU TIMBERLAND.

Healthy Kids' Snacks

Snacks are a bigger part of kids' diets than in the past.  Snacks can make positive or negative contributions to kids' diets - depending on the choices we offer.  Next time your children say, "I'm hungry," or if you need to get them through to the next meal, reach for one of these healthy snacks.
