Tasting the Rainbow!
Friday, April 1, 2016
All of our scholars took part in a magnificent program that gave them the opportunity to taste the rainbow. The program was presented by The Culinary Trust (TCT), Barb Thomas (certified nutritionist and culinary instructor) and John Morris (Canadian curler and Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic gold medalist). Selma scholars sliced and prepared fresh fruit and vegetable salads. In addition, basil and mint that is growing in our school's garden was also used in the tasty salads. Thank you, TCT and volunteers for working with our scholars and teaching them the importance of including fruits and vegetables in their daily meals. A big thank you to Barb Thomas and John Morris who came all the way from Canada to teach and work with our scholars.

Selma Gets Active And Saves Lives
Monday, March 7, 2016
This morning at Selma, UNICEF Kid Power celebrated the impact of local scholars getting active and saving lives. Selma Avenue Elementary School is currently participating in the UNICEF Kid Power project. The school recently received a grant through UNICEF which has provided all third, fourth and fifth grade students with an exercise tracker band. The classroom teachers received a charging station with a tablet to track their students’ steps and points. If students reach certain points of activity, they earn donations through UNICEF to provide bags of powdered milk and powdered protein to kids suffering from malnutrition in third world countries.
Thanks to UNICEF, Target and Lucasfilm for hosting this great event at our school. In addition, thanks to Target partner and lifestyle expert, Camila Alves for talking to our students and motivating them to live a more active lifestyle. Thanks to LAUSD Board President Steve Zimmer and California Dance Institute for joining us at this event.
