Hot Lunch News

Welcome Back! Lunch for K-3 is $3.25 and 4th-8th is $3.75. Lunch includes a main dish, two sides, and a 10oz drink. A bagel can be substituted for the main dish if desired. Holy Grounds will be open to the students for a brief time after their lunch period for special treats from hot chocolates and smoothies, to muffins and cookies. For children that bring their lunches from home, there will be microwaves available. Your participation in the program makes it a success. By working off volunteer hours during lunch or just buying your kid’s lunch, makes a difference. Thank you so much.

Holy Grounds will be open from 7:30am to 2:00pm. Payment for hot lunch can be made through the school office by check and also at Holy Grounds by check, cash, credit, or debit. Theresa Thomas will be contacting families by email about their accounts and sometimes calling with a friendly reminder. The children can preload an account in Holy Grounds as well, for their before school and after lunch purchases.

Please come in and have some coffee and visit. Let Theresa Thomas know if I can assist with any special circumstances regarding hot lunch or if you would like to volunteer!
