Share Table

For various reasons, students may not always want to consume certain items included in their meals. We have started a Share Table to encourage students to repurpose their unwanted, unopened food instead of throwing it in the garbage. Students may return whole food or beverage items they choose not to eat in accordance with all food safety codes. These items are then available to other students who may want additional servings.

Our Goals are to:

* Provide a space for students to place unopened food to be used by other students, reused in the kitchen, or donated to local organizations, instead of throwing it in the garbage

* Minimize food waste during meals

* Promote sharing principles.

* Demonstrate the importance of community involvement, through donating unwanted food.

Box Tops for Education

The Box Tops for Education program is changing this year. There are two ways we can earn cash for our school!

Clip: If your package has a traditional Box Top clip, cut it out and send it to school (each grade level has a collection bin). We earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire.

Scan: If your package has the new Box Tops label, use the Box Tops app to scan your store receipt within 14 days of purchase. The app will instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online.
