Today’s Lunch:  *GOULASH * CORN TEA BUN BROCCOLI

Tomorrow’s Lunch: BREAKFAST TACOS

Tomorrow’s Breakfast:

 

UPDATE* Students:  Do not go to your lockers or classrooms before 8:05.  This includes bus students.  All students should first come to the commons area.  Thank you.

 

Students:  Please stay out of the tar if you have to cross or walk on the streets!!!

 

From BJ:

 

Dear students and staff,

Now that we have started back to school and are in full swing of it, I would like your input on the next month’s menus. (Within reason)  I will try to get all of your ideas in on the month’s menu but I will need them by the 15th of September.    The students need to pick one main protein, a vegetable, and at least one fruit (fresh or canned).  I will take care of the reset to make sure we are compliant with the guidelines I have to follow. 

 

example:

cheese bread 

carrots 

canned peaches 

watermelon 

 

This went over well last year with the grade school and I hope that it will encourage our students and staff to participate in the food program that we have here at Groton.  

 

Thank You

 Brandon (BJ) Clocksene
