Harry S Truman Elementary School and Western Salisbury Elementary School are again participating in a national heatlhy-eating initiative this week called P.A.C.K Week - Pack Assorted Colors for Kids Week. This is a fun and educational program aimed at encouraging kids to eat more fruits and vegetables, which can be difficult for some kids to do. The schools are asking families to pack a fruit or vegetable in your child’s lunch based on the color of the day.
