"Globetrotter" travels!

Here is the link to a PDF of "Globetrotter" our Language Academy Bulldog mascot. 
Where will Globetrotter go over the winter break -- Europe? Mexico? Fashion Valley? Color the picture and take a photo of him somewhere on vacation. You can email Coach Davis or me the photo or post it yourself on the Facebook page. Or take a picture of yourself in your LA Bulldog T-shirt and post it...let's see where Globetrotter travels over the break.

If I knew we were going to watch Food Inc. today, there is no way I would have brought a cheeseburger for lunch...

Obese Children

Sizing Up Student Bodies -- interesting article in the Union-Trib last week on obesity in our school age children, including some alarming statistics: "By sixth grade, one out of  four boys and girls was [is!] obese...."
So if there are 24 students in your child's class, quite possibly 6 of those children are severely overweight and at risk for potentially dangerous health issues.

Much respect and thanks to our Language Academy parents that get out early every morning to take care of the Running Club and promote fitness and a healthy lifestyle!

Here is the info on the Running Club from the Language Academy website.

Simpson's Nursery

Great place to take the kids for a long walk, lots of plants, cool cars, and a llama!
