During the week of Sept 12-16, Verda Deirzen Early Learning Center celebrated Fruit Week. Each day was assigned a different color. Each day students and staff were asked to wear the color. Teachers talked to students about what fruit was the assigned color and how that fruit was good for the body. Students were encouraged to bring fruit for snacks and lunch and hot lunches offered the color fruit of the day for students to eat. The cafeteria was decorated in the color of the day. And in gym class, students played color games or fruit games.
