    Earlier this year, Glen Rock High School junior Erica Jones was awarded a $4,000 grant by Sustainable Jersey for Schools, a certification program for New Jersey public schools that want to go green, conserve resources and take steps to create a brighter future, one school at a time. This nonprofit organization provides tools, training and financial incentives to support and reward schools as they pursue sustainability programs. Ms. Jones’ project focused on education and improvements in health-related habits and/or cafeteria food, with a goal of offering better, more nutritious lunches and positive changes to Glen Rock families’ diets.
    As part of this initiative, the district is holding two nutrition presentation for parents – for Middle School/High School parents on May 17 and elementary parents on May 19.
    Please see the attached flyers for more information about these interactive, dynamic presentations, which will be facilitated by Glen Rock parent and Holistic Health Coach, Erica Danziger
