Thank you Nurse Becky
Bemidji Minnesota P.O. Box 455 56619

Blackduck School Nurse, Becky Denny has started a program to provide healthy snacks to our elementary students every Tuesday and Thursday - and the first graders just wanted to say, "Thanks Nurse Becky!"

Becky recently wrote a grant proposal that was successful -- so now the Blackduck Elementary students can receive a healthy snack twice a week. So far the students have enjoyed plums, carrots and dip, celery and peanut butter, apples and tangerines!

Many of these healthy treats are ones that our kids don't have many opportunities to experience and enjoy -- so this is a great new program to get kids eating healthy snacks like fruits and vegetables. Just look at the faces: those are some happy first graders! Thanks Nurse Becky!
