Friendly reminders

• Spring break is just about over and now is a good time to replenish those school supplies that have run out since back-to-school shopping in August. Items your child might need include lined paper, pencils, pens, erasers, glue sticks, markers, highlighters, folders and composition notebooks.

• Who can think when they're hungry? Good nutrition plays a big part in learning, so it's important to get the day started with a healthy meal — either at home or at school. All Pasco County schools serve breakfast and free breakfast programs are available at various schools. For those whose financial circumstances may have changed since school started in August, a reminder that applications for the free and reduced meal program are accepted throughout the school year. Applications may be picked up at any school or on the Pasco County School District website at Go to "departments" and click on Food and Nutrition. For more information, call (813) 794-2439.
