Big picture

Awesome job Marlana Sustaita!

She only had a window of thirty days to research, write, and submit the NSLP Equipment Grant for a new serving line in the cafeteria. (Let's not forget everyday operations as well as the Thanksgiving dinner! ) Thanks to her dedication and hard work, Mrs. Sustaita has been awarded the highest amount gifted in the sum of $148, 067.68. The project is projected to start this summer in hopes to be completed for the new 2019-20 school year.
