Any ornament can be customized with text for an additional $2. The order form below can be dropped off at either the elementary, middle, or high school office along with your payment. Any checks should be payable to Mancos Schools. For your convenience, printed forms are also available at each school office.
Last week we celebrated National School Lunch week across the nation. I am happy to say we are serving approximately 75-80% of our students in our district daily.
On Tuesday your students enjoyed homemade spaghetti made by my culinary class that was made with fresh vegetables grown in our school garden thanks to Montezuma School to Farm, and locally grown beef, purchased through one of Mancos’ extraordinary students Lilly Figueroa from the Colorado Kunes and Cows Ranch!
They also enjoyed homemade pancakes, and we introduced a new dish, chicken nacho’s. We continue to build our menu based on student input and have added a “kids Choice” category once a month where students get to choose collectively what they get to eat that day.
Breakfast is delivered to the Middle School and High School daily for students that arrive on the other side of campus.
My staff is dedicated to feeding your students every day and we enjoy being the first faces they get to see in the morning.
Please let us know if have any questions or concerns. Menus can be viewed from the online at www.mealviewer.com Add the app to your phone to keep the menu at your fingertips. Please note that we are having difficulties filling orders with our distributor, as the countries supply chain has been compromised due to the pandemic. Menus are subject to change at any time without notice.
Have a great weekend!
