Ice Cream in Kindergarten
I scream. You scream. All the kindergarteners scream for ice cream!
On Monday, January 29th, all kindergarten students, whether they buy lunch at school or bring a lunch from home, will be able to purchase ice cream during their lunch time. The cost for this treat is $1.25 and can be paid by cash or through their MySchoolBucks account which can be accessed through the childhood nutrition tab on the Prosper ISD website as well as the link below.
Prior to Monday, please:
- Ensure that your child has money in their account or brings cash from home.
- Discuss with them your expectations on when (what days) they can buy ice cream as well as emphasizing in what order you would like them to eat their meal (I.e. meal first then ice cream)
If you prefer that your child not buy ice cream, please have a discussion with them as well before Monday. It makes it easier for everyone if they know your expectations before the big day. To place restrictions on your child's lunch account, please contact:
Child Nutrition Coordinator

Once again, the kindergarteners are so excited to buy ice cream like the "big kids."
