Thursday’s Random Recognition

Today’s random recognition goes to Henry Todd for being so helpful putting away chairs at the end of lunch.  Thanks for helping out, Henry!  We appreciate it!

If you know of a student or staff member who deserves random recognition, shoot  an email to Barb!

If you have a meal account check or cash to turn in, please drop it off at the front desk.

Lunch Orders Announcement:

Are you having a hard time remembering when you ordered lunch?  Just send an e-mail to Kim at the front desk and she will let you know what you ordered for the week.  You can also make a copy of your monthly menu and keep one at home and one in your locker or at your desk, for a reminder.

If you forgot that you ordered and you brought a lunch, we have to ask that you still purchase your school lunch.  Because we use a catering service and order a full week in advance, the school has to pay for your lunch if you don’t pick it up.  Please help us out by picking up the lunches that you ordered.  If a staff member reminds you that you ordered, please go back promptly and pick up your lunch.  There may be other students waiting for extra’s and they aren’t able to go through the line until all placed orders are served.

We also have students on a permanent list.  If you are on the permanent list and you decline your lunch twice, we will have to remove you from the permanent list.  You can still order lunches, but we won’t automatically put in a daily order for you.  You’ll have to select the lunches you would like from the order form and turn one in each month.

Thanks for your help!   Theresa, Kim and Barb
