Stew & Bannock - November 17, 2023
Thank you to Terri Bulldog for making not one, but two kinds of stew to serve with deep-fried bannock today as we rounded out Métis Week, a celebration of Indigenous culture, history, and the sharing of food. Staff and students got to choose from beef or chicken stew served with a smile by our Indigenous Support Coach Vannah Anderson, Mr. Dan and the rest of her #teamawesome helpers. Wihkitisiw!
Green Smoothies - October 20, 2023
Our grade 6 Foods Exploratory students learned how to prepare delicious green smoothies this afternoon using a combination of both fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. Thank you to Amy Soudek, Healthy School Food Program Developer and Certified Natural Nutrition Consultant, for getting kids excited about drinking their daily dose of vitamins, minerals, and yumminess.
Smile Cookies - May 4, 2023
We already have so many reasons to smile here at T.A. Norris Middle School and we added one more today. Or rather, 300 more. A surprise afternoon snack for students and staff!
Grandfather Teachings Kickoff Lunch - April 27
Beef stew, chicken stew, baked bannock, fried bannock. The best part? There was enough for second helpings! Thank you to Teri-Lynn Bulldog for sharing your traditional recipes with 275 hungry students and staff this afternoon during our school-wide Grandfather Teachings Lunch & Awards Presentation. It was wonderful to see the whole school come together with the help of parents and our very capable Indigenous Education Support Coach Vannah Anderson. Congratulations to the seven students from each grade who were nominated to receive certificates for displaying the character virtues of honesty, truth, humility, love, wisdom, courage and respect. https://www.tanorrismiddleschool.ca/photos/awards
The Big Crunch - March 29, 2023
Okra, asparagus, butternut squash, pemlo, golden beets, fresh mushrooms, snap peas, parsnips, plantain, eggplant, yellow kiwi, mango, grapefruit, dragonfruit, avocado, apple-pears ... these were just a few of the colourful fruits and vegetables students adventurously put on their plates today as we encouraged them to try something new for THE BIG CRUNCH, an initiative of under Alberta Food Matters through the Coalition for Healthy School Food. It was so inspiring to kids piling their plates with a rainbow of fruits and vegetables and coming back for second helpings. This is an event worth repeating!
