January 25th
The Nutrition Committee is looking for volunteers to hand out tasty food samples during any or all lunch periods. The kids always welcome Sample Day.  They are encouraged to try foods that will appear on future cafeteria menus.  They love seeing parents volunteer and they appreciate being heard about the school meals.  If you are available on the 25th between 11:15-1:30, please email Missy Halpern at mymiss@aol.com.
