Questions, Celebrations and Ideas Form


No questions - just kudos! I LOVE the Birthday Grams Idea!! The kids really enjoy decorating lockers and celebrating their peers special day!
Thank you for making it more fun and a wonderful way to make the kids feel special. Great Job - Keep it up!

Questions and Ideas

Idea: Please offer simple Indian or Asian vegan/ vegetarian entrees or sides in the school menu. I understand the school must comply with nutritional requirements but there are plenty of options that hopefully should not be hard to implement. I would be interested to assist with this. My children are both in RMS. Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you for contributing ideas! We recognize that our students are interested in new options and that we serve a student body with a wide range of tastes and preferences. It has been a priority for our cafeteria manager and Forsyth County Schools to continually seek new options for our students. Vegan options are very limited, but we continue to seek new offerings through our suppliers. Currently, our cafeteria does offer salads daily as a vegan option. We also have a third line in the cafeteria with a variety of vegetarian options that change daily. Forsyth County Schools' Food Services department continually seeks input through our cafeteria managers. We appreciate this feedback. If there are other avenues that would allow support from our community, we will certainly reach out. I have also shared your thoughts with our cafeteria manager directly.

Congratulations to the Panthers on their 5-2 Season! They are headed to the Playoffs! Tuesday, 9/24 at 6:30 pm at Forsyth Central High School.
