A Note from the Child Nutrition Secretary

A friendly reminder…

Have you filled out a meal application for the new school year 2019-20?

  • If you were enrolled in USD 475 last year and qualified for the free/reduced meal program, and you haven’t completed a new application this school year, after September 16, 2019 your meal status will change and your student will be charged full price.
  • If you have never filled out a meal application and you would like to, you can pick one up at the office or we can send one home with your child.

Please contact Maren Howard at (785) 717-4411 or marenhoward@usd475.org, if you have any questions.

K-State GROW (Science) Student Opportunity

This fall there is an opportunity for JCMS students to spend a day at Kansas State University while attending a GROW (Girls Researching Our World) workshop. The fall workshop will be October 12 from 9am-3:30pm at the K-State campus in Manhattan. The theme is “It’s Elemental, Dr. Watson!” in honor of the International Year of the Periodic Table and 150 years since the discovery of the periodic system. Activities will explore how the chemical elements continue to be important across STEM disciplines today. Example activities include a look at the elements needed in a healthy diet, macronutrients in soil science, and the periodic table as an art form.

Junction City Middle School can send up to 40 students (this event is geared toward girls, but anybody can go) attend. It will be basically be first come, first serve so if students are interested they should contact their Science teacher immediately. If selected to attend with JCMS, the $30 registration fee will be paid for by USD 475. Students will be bused from JCMS to Kansas State University and Mrs. Russell (7th grade science teacher) will attend with them for the day. Parents will only need to pick up and drop off from Junction City Middle School at the designated times.
