Great Nutrition Information

Check out our Nutrition Services' new web site which features good information on nutrition, exercise and keeping your children healthy.

Did you know...this generation of young people is the first that is forecast to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents? 1 in 3 or 4 children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes at some point in their lifetime. The prevalence of overweight kids among 6 to 11 year olds has doubled in the past 20 years and tripled for teens.

Dalton Students Getting Hands-On With Math

Dalton teachers have been hard at work to implement our new Math Program, Everyday Mathematics.  This program address California Common Core State Standards and addresses the skills students need to really understand Math concepts and apply them effectively. These skills, which focus on critical thinking, will prepare students for college, career and beyond.
