"Our dietitian was a fantastic leader with a great way of engaging and questioning the students. She brought the label-reading section of our Health curriculum down to a very simplified level that the students could easily understand, using the Guiding Stars program. It was so kind of you all to organize this for our school, and especially generous of you to give us the backpacks and treats."
