Incoming 2nd and 3rd graders finished a summer reading challenge and read at least 40 nights. About 30 students read over the summer and were treated to a breakfast in the Laurie Caldwell Library last Friday, August 23. In addition each student received a new book! Great work!
Hot food in the school lunches is coming soon! We kick off hot food service on Wednesday, 9/4, with corn dogs. The salad bar continues to be on the menu Monday-Friday along with hot food. Fridays will generally be chef salad so we can effectively finish out leftovers. Enjoy!
Here's a link to an informative article in North State Parent Magazine that highlights the School CAFE group and their role in bringing our new salad bars to both schools: https://northstateparent.com/2019/08/the-growth-of-mount-shastas-school-cafe/
Here's a quick update on our new salad bars at Sisson and MSE. The final parts needed for us to deploy the salad bars are in, and students should be able to start serving themselves soon. Hot food will follow soon after. Please reach out to your school's office with questions.
