May Madness

National Nutrition Employee Week May 2-6

Cafeteria staff member’s work very hard each day to ensure our students and staff are fed nutritious meals. Help us recognize them and show appreciation for their hard work during National School Lunch Hero day, May 6 and during School Nutrition Employee week, May 2-6. The WCPS admin team will be baking cupcakes and delivering to each school to show their appreciation. They are also asking for additional support from each school to show appreciation.

•Dan ~ Announce School Nutrition Employee Week (May 2-6, 2016) and School Lunch Hero Day (May 6, 2016) on the morning announcements. Let's ask the students to be sure to thank all of the cafe workers each day during the week.

TEACHERS, please consider doing the following:

• Make signs, banners or posters to decorate your cafeteria and to promote the work your staff does. Feature photos of the employees and a short description of why they are special.

• Send a thoughtful greeting from the class (card, poster, picture...).

• Post special notes in the cafeteria for everyone to read.

Or, be as creative as you want. Please just take a moment to recognize our very important workers!
