Breakfast and Lunch

You may access the School District Profile for the Selfridge School District on the Department of Public Instruction’s website at the following address:  http://www.dpi.state.nd.us/dpi/reports/profile/index.shtm.   Simply select the Selfridge Public School District and the most recent year to access the various reports available.

School Breakfast Program

We need your help to make sure all of our students are fully prepared for academic success.  We all know that hungry children have a more difficult time doing their best work.  That’s  why we encourage all students to begin the school day with a nutritious breakfast.

The School Breakfast Program is available to all students every weekday morning.  You do not have to register your child in advance.  Your child can eat breakfast at school every day or only occasionally.  School breakfast makes good sense – it provides 1/4 of your child’s nutritional needs, meets Dietary Guidelines recommendations, and offers children a chance to eat breakfast with their friends.

School Breakfast is an ideal solution on busy mornings when kids are running late or parents have to be at work early.  Whatever the reason, if breakfast at home is not convenient, please have your child take advantage of breakfast here at school.

Breakfast schedule:  7:30 to 7:55 am Monday through Friday.

School Wellness Policy

Selfridge Public School Health Wellness Program

 

Selfridge Public School will play a critical role in creating a healthy environment for combating health and fitness problems associated with poor nutrition, food allergies, and lack of physical activity.

 

Goals for nutrition education, physical activity, and other school based activities have been designed to promote student wellness.  Nutrition standards for all foods that are available during the school day will be established with the objective of promoting student health and reducing childhood obesity.

 

Nutrition Education Goals

The primary goal of nutrition education is to positively influence the students eating behaviors to promote good health.

 

Effective Nutrition Education:

Is interactive and teaches the skills they need to adopt healthy eating behaviors.

Is offered in the school dining room as well as in the classroom, with coordination between the food service staff and teachers.

Is communicated in consistent nutrition messages throughout the school, classroom and cafeteria and promoted to parents, the community and the media.

Is integrated into the health education curricula and or core curriculum.

Is taught by staff with appropriate training.

 

Physical Fitness Goals

The primary goal of physical fitness is to provide opportunities for every student to develop the knowledge and skills for specific physical activities, maintain physical fitness, regularly participate in physical activity and understand the benefits of a physically active and healthful lifestyle.

 

Effective Physical Fitness should provide a minimum:

 

Elementary School:

At least 100 minutes per week of Physical Education instruction and at least 50 minutes per week of additional physical activity including daily recess periods, walking programs, after school program and before and after school personal activities.

 

Secondary School:

At least 180 minutes per week of Physical Education instruction and at least 45 minutes of additional physical activity including elective Physical Education classes, walking programs including intramurals, interscholastic athletics, competitive sports and physical activity clubs.

 

Nutrition Goals:

Nutrition standards should be established for all foods available in school during the school day.  Students lifelong eating habits are greatly influenced by the type of foods and beverages available to them.  We must insure that school meals meet the program requirements and nutrition standards.  Standards must also be established to address all food and beverages sold or served to students, including those available outside of the school meal program.  Standards should include increasing nutrient density, decreasing fat and added sugars and moderating portion size.

 

General:

Nutrition service offers healthy, nutritious meals, snacks and beverages in compliance with the USDA guidelines.  Contracts with vending companies, arrangements with community partners or parent donations, concessions treats brought to classrooms, milk break snacks, sack lunches and fundraisers will comply with the policy guidelines.

 

Other School Based activities Goals:

School environments should provide consistent wellness messages and be conductive to healthy eating and being physically active.

Provide a clean, safe, enjoyable meal environment for students.

Provide adequate time for students to eat and schedule during the middle of the day.

Discourage use of food as a reward or withheld as a punishment.

Provide enough space and serving areas to ensure access to school meals with a minimum of time.

Discourage denial of student participation in recess or other physical activity as a form of discipline and cancellation of recess or other physical activity time for instructional makeup time.

Ensure fundraising efforts are supportive of healthy eating.

Provide ongoing professional training and development for food service staff and teachers in the areas of nutrition and physical education.

Provide student access to physical activity facilities outside of school hours.

Schedule recess for elementary grades before lunch so that children will come to lunch less distracted and ready to eat.

Develop strategies for teachers, school administrators, students, and food service professionals to serve as role models in practicing healthy eating and being physically active both in school and at home.

 

Effective Nutrition Goals:

Both after school or school activities where refreshments are served and treats brought to the classroom are strongly recommended to offer healthy alternatives.

All food and beverages sold will meet healthy snack rules.

 

Monitoring and Evaluation

The school administration director will be the districts designee to ensure compliance with the established Wellness Policy and will report on the schools compliance annually to the school board.  The principal will enforce the policy and report to the school administration director regarding the compliance of the health wellness policies.

 

Exception to Competitive Food and Beverage Sales

Each school year, schools within the district may hold up to three fundraisers that do not comply with federal nutrition standards for competitive food and beverage sales.  The Superintendent shall develop rules for requesting and receiving approval to hold fundraisers under this exception.  The fundraiser may occur during school hours, but not during school meal times.

NAEP 2017 PARENT/GUARDIAN NOTIFICATION LETTER

Selfridge Public School

 

 

Written Notification of Interactive Dashboard (School District Report Card)

Dear Parent/Guardian,

North Dakota has launched a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and schools. NDInsights features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including:

  • Test scores
  • Graduation rates
  • English Learner progress
  • Student attendance. NDInsights, or more commonly referred to as the “Dashboard,” is part of North Dakota’s new accountability system. It is the next step in a series of major shifts in public education that have raised the bar for student learning, transformed testing, and placed the focus on equity for all students. To learn more about the state’s accountability and continuous improvement, visit North Dakota’s ESSA website.To find out more information about our school, visit NDInsights, select “Find My School,” and search alphabetically for our school. Why a new system and new tool? In the past, the accountability system for districts and schools relied heavily on test scores. But one test taken on one particular day does not provide a complete picture of all the ways schools are helping students succeed. The Dashboard continues to provide information on different aspects of student performance, but also includes information on school growth and other factors reflecting a more comprehensive view. The Dashboard replaces the former School District Report Card and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) reports.Please note, the data made available to the public masks or hides data for groups with 10 or fewer students to protect confidential information about individual students. What’s next for our district?
  • What is different?
  • North Dakota is committed to informing communities about how well our schools are doing. North Dakota’s future success depends on tapping into the potential of all students, so they graduate choice ready with the knowledge, skills and disposition to be successful. For schools to reach this goal, teachers, parents, and the community need clear and useful measures of progress. As an accountability tool, the Dashboard will help the state identify schools receiving additional support and assistance.
  •  

We have strong plans for working to improve the educational programs at our school. We would like you and your child(ren) to continue to be active participants in our educational system. Please help support our high expectations for student achievement by participating in the school educational initiatives, offering input and support in our endeavors to raise student achievement, or volunteering at the school. Meeting our school’s goals will take a united effort, and I look forward to working with our families to ensure success for each student.

School Support under ESSA

All schools engage in continuous improvement for general support; therefore our school will complete an AdvancED Continuous Improvement Plan annually.

In addition, our school was selected for Comprehensive Support due to the lowest performing 5% of all Title I schools base on the accountability framework.

Selfridge Elementary is a participating Title I school, with a student membership count of 41.  If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact Selfridge Public School 210 2nd Ave. S. Selfridge, ND  58568 (701)422-3353, email: kristi.miller@k12.nd.us.

Thank you,
