The Lion's Club along with our school nurses will be conducting vision and hearing screenings. The Lion's Club uses the SPOT vision camera to detect vision issues at an early age. This is a new highly effective device that screens both eyes at once at a non threatening 3 foot distance. The camera can help detect several different disorders of the eye. If your child currently wears glasses or contacts, please make sure they bring/wear them on the scheduled screen day.
Please contact the school nurse by Friday, January 13th, if you DO NOT wish to have your child screened. Thank you! Healthy children learn better!

The whole concept of the Sodexo Future Chefs Elementary Culinary Competition is to help educate the children in HEALTHY EATING HABITS. Too often we hear about childhood obesity and kids not making the right choices in terms of their eating habits. That’s why we want kids to submit recipes for their favorite healthy comfort food!
Final judging will be based on:
- Health Conscious Foods
- Simple, Kid-friendly Preparation
- Fun Kid-Foods
- Judge’s Choice
- Best Table Presentation
- Bonus Ingredients used such as Whole Grain Pasta, Whole Grain Bread, Brown Rice, Low-Fat Cheese, Eggs, Lean Ground Beef, Turkey, Potatoes & Mushrooms
Students in 4-5 grades complete recipe form and turn them into teachers. Teachers will collect the recipe form and give them to their cafeteria manager.
Cafeteria Managers will submit all completed recipes to the Support Services Center no later than Thursday, February 2, 2017.
A panel of my colleagues will narrow down recipes to one student per school.
The finalists will be formally invited to a Culinary Competition “Cook-Off” on
Thursday, March 16, 2017 tentatively scheduled for 4:00PM.
All Finalists will receive medals, t-shirt, apron and hat.
Local press will be invited to take pictures of the kid’s creations, parents and
teachers can view (and taste!) the final product from 6-7 PM on March 16.
Transportation will not be provided for the competition. Students will need to be
dropped off by 4PM/picked up by 7PM at R2i2.
Safety issues and staff supervision: Each group of three students will have a kitchen
staff member assigned to them. This will ensure that safe food practices are
followed and no one is harmed.
Please let me know if I can answer any questions or concerns.
