Fruitful Friday - The tradition of giving an apple to a teacher started in the 1700s. Families in Denmark and Sweden gave teachers baskets of apples and potatoes as payment for teaching their children. Please have your child bring in a fruit-themed pastry, candy, or healthy fruit. It is just a "sweet and fruitful" gesture to say, "Thank you, you are appreciated". This can be homemade or store-bought, just remember AIS is a nut-free campus.
