DARE Celebration Lunch
To celebrate the completion of the D.A.R.E. program, our P.T.A. is providing free lunch for all 5th grade students on the December 16th! The cafeteria will be serving Big Daddy Cheese Pizza, along with milk, fruit/vegetables (Type “A” lunch) and a cookie. Students can choose the Big Daddy Pizza entree, or any of the usual alternate choices as an entree. If students want doubles or ala carte, they will be charged for those choices. Our D.A.R.E. Officer will be joining the students for lunch! The lunch schedule will not change. Thank you, P.T.A.!!
