Breakfast and Lunch Visitors

We would love to have you come eat breakfast or lunch with your child. Here are a few practices and reminders that allow for your lunch visits.

* Food from restaurants should not be brought in restaurant packaging. We encourage you to support our cafeteria and eat the food that they prepare.

* You and your child can sit at one of our visitor tables (in the middle of the cafeteria), however other students are not allowed to join you so that you can have this special time with your child.

* Kindergarten and PreK parents should wait until after Labor Day. If your child has a hard time with you leaving, you may need to wait a little longer.

* Adult meal prices are listed in the CNP section. You can pay at check out or deduct your cost from your child's meal account.

* If you come for breakfast or lunch, please check in at the front desk first.

* It is helpful if you can let the teacher know you are coming so that the teacher can include your lunch order in the count for that day. This ensures the cafeteria prepares enough food.

Thank you!!

Donations are needed!!

Dear Parents,

Our enrichment teachers and librarian are currently working on an innovative plan, and we need your help! We know that many families clean out garages and closets over the summer. If you come across any of these items that you plan to get rid of, would you consider donating them to our school instead?

Perhaps you have old birthday party decorations that match one of our themes, or perhaps you've decided to clean out that overcrowded bucket of cute stuffed animals. Please see the lists of items below. Your trash could be our treasure!

We will be using one classroom in our school for a quarterly room transformation centered around an animal theme. The classroom teachers will be able to bring their students to this room to do engaging lessons addressing grade level standards. Room transformations prove to increase engagement for students and provide a unique avenue for learning.

We plan to use these resources for years to come as we build a "library" of room transformation kits for our school. We will have 4 large labeled buckets in the foyer of our school if you find any items that will help with our plans. Feel free to bring these to the school or send them with your child. Thank you so much!
