Hundreds of Richard C. Hedke Elementary School students joined millions of children around the world in 15 minutes of exercise Wednesday morning to celebrate All Children Exercising Simultaneously Day (A.C.E.S.).

Lunch prices for Trenton Public Schools remain the same as last year.
Lunch prices at Trenton Public School will not change for the 2011-12 school year. Prices will not increase despite a provision of the federal government’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, signed by President Barack Obama last year, that requires a rate increase for some schools. The law mandates that every district adjust its meal prices to ensure the overall rate is comparable with federal reimbursement rates. At TPS elementary schools and the middle school, students will pay $2.75 for lunch and $1.50 for breakfast. Students eligible for reduced lunch will pay $.40 for lunch and $.30 for breakfast. High school students will pay $3.00 for lunch and $1.50 for breakfast. Reduced lunch costs are the same for all schools. Adults who …
