Interested in coaching? Stop by to find out more and ask questions! WANTED: 2 Parents as FIRST Lego League (FLL) Coaches. Interest is growing! We are looking for some adults to coach 2 additional teams here at Folly Quarter Middle School. Requirements: Commitment, Consistent Availability for Meetings, and Enthusiasm. You will be the main coach of one team and in charge of keeping them together, motivated, and making progress. (This responsibility could also be split between two people.)

You are to primarily act as a facilitator and motivator. Time Commitment: (ONE of these options): -Meet at the same time as Mrs. Copanic’s Team (almost everyday from 2:25 – 3:15). -Meet at the same time as Mrs.
Capurso’s Team (likely to be Thursdays from 2:30 – 5:30). Teams will be comprised of approximately 6-8 students. BONUS - You can join us at the fall student try-outs and be part of the team selection decisions. What to know more? Come check us out at UMBC March 5th at the State Championship. Please Contact Mrs. Copanic at Katherine_copanic@hcpss.org by April 4th with your name, phone number, and time options above that would work for you (unless either would be fine). Coach selection decisions will be made after we have heard back from any interested individuals and after speaking with everyone. JUST THE FACS Tara Terry, FACS Teacher Brrrr are you chilly? National Frozen Food Day is coming! This Sunday, March 6, marks National Frozen Food Day. According to www.nationaldaycalendar.com, President Ronald Reagan stated in Proclamation #5157: "Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 6, 1984, as Frozen Food Day, and I call upon the American people to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities." And, so this became a true National day of recognition and celebration. National Frozen Food Day celebrates all those delicious foods and snacks in your freezer. Frozen foods first hit store shelves in 1930 in Springfield, Massachusetts. Clarence Birdseye developed the process, which he referred to as 'quick freezing'. Food was packaged individually and then frozen inside the package between two refrigerated surfaces under pressure. Imagine how your busy life would be if you didn’t have frozen foods accessible to pop in the microwave, toaster oven, toaster or oven? You would have to make your meals from scratch! I know for myself having two little boys at home, I wouldn’t even know where I would find the extra time. For breakfast, you can start your day with protein by heating up a healthy frozen breakfast sandwich, which includes turkey bacon or turkey sausage. There are many vegetables you can take out of the freezer and heat up for a healthy side for lunch or dinner. I like to keep multi-grain bread in the freezer, put a slice in the toaster, and then add almond butter on top for a healthy snack. Want an option for calcium? There are also healthy ice creams and frozen yogurts to enjoy! Need a quick and easy dinner? Frozen dinners were first introduced on TV by Swanson in 1954. A lot has changed since then, and there are many, many wonderful options for frozen foods to find in your grocer’s freezer section. When you make a selection, just make sure your frozen food doesn’t have too much sodium. Consider stocking up on your frozen foods this week and participate in National Frozen Food Day on March 6!
