Greetings Victor Falls Families,
I want to let you know about some important dates and information for the coming week. Picture Day is Tuesday, October 14. Please be sure you’ve turned in your picture packets.
Victor Falls will be participating in the Great Washington Shake Out on October 16th. This is a state wide Earthquake Drill. We've had one very successful Fire Drill this year. We will let students know in advance and teachers prepare their classes for these drills - however I encourage you to talk with younger children about safety drills so they feel secure about the process.

Effective July 1, 2014: Sumner School District Compliance with Smart Snacks Standards
The Smart Snacks standards published by the USDA last summer ensure that all foods and beverages available for sale to students in school, including snacks, are tasty and nutritious. The standards incorporate science-based nutrition guidelines and set limits on the amount of calories, sodium, fat and sugar included in items sold to students during the school day.
The Smart Snacks standards do not limit what food parents can send to school with their child. The standards only affect foods and beverages sold in schools during the school day.
The program will impact what student groups, PTAs, PTOs, and booster clubs can sell for fundraisers during the school day as only foods and beverages that meet the Smart Snack standards can be sold. The standards do not apply to items sold during non-school hours, weekends or off-campus fundraising events, such a frozen pizza sales or concessions during sporting events.
The Smart Snacks Product Calculator tool will help determine if food and beverage products sold to students meet the Smart Snacks Rule. The calculator has been determined by the USDA to be accurate in assessing products.
