Earth Day celebrated with students! All students received "dirt for dessert" (pudding with cookie crumbles and a gummy worm), tips on recycling at home as well as a fun Earth Day related game.
MENUSFood supply chains are working to adapt with the changing needs of schools, restaurants, hospitals, etc. As a result, we are having to adjust our menus to what is available. This can change week by week. We appreciate your patience and understanding with this.We are also working with our vendors to incorporate typical student favorites! These include items like taco in a bag and pizza. These items will come to you cold for food safety reasons, but can be easily heated in a microwave, if desired.As new menu items become available, we will incorporate them. Look for upcoming menus to include Asian Chicken with Brown Rice, Hot Dogs, and more!Food is a necessity but also a way to celebrate traditions and special events! We will be helping our students to celebrate different occasions with fun menu items. April 22 we will celebrate Earth Day. Look for a surprise menu item in your lunch!
