School Lunch Food Service News

YEAR END Reminder for All FOOD SERVICE Accounts:

Please make sure to end the school year with a positive or $0 balance in your food service account. Unpaid charges place a financial strain on the food service department.

For graduating families without younger siblings, please check the balances in your food service and registration fee accounts. If you have a positive balance remaining, please contact the business office with your request to receive a refund of the balance or election of donating the remaining amount to an "Angel" fund to be used for other families in the food service program. We currently have a need for this in our schools. Please email Tanya in the Business Office koiket@merton.k12.wi.us with your choice.

Read a book in a week? How do we do this?

Our third graders were having a terrific time using their reading strategies to pair up and read chapters of a book during the course of Friday morning's workshop. You should've been here-the kids were setting up their posters with pre-determined components that were explained during the mini-lesson. It was so much fun to talk with them about it.

The library has become THE place to read.

Here are some of our fourth graders enjoying some quiet reading time on Celebration Day. As you can see, there are different places that the students truly enjoy. We are blessed as a school to have this space.
