Pennies for Patients starts Monday! Save those Pennies and other spare change........

Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. The funds, collected during a three-week period, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner!

Students across the country are collecting pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during the Pennies for Patients campaigns benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

 

New-N-Improved "Cafe" Menu

We are excited to announce our new menu design.  We have been working hard to bring a new interactive menu design for our parents.   This will be a work in progress as we move forward with this and as new enhancements are added to our new program.

 

This will allow parents to click on our menu items to see the nutrients on each of our menu items, and will help parents help their child make good nutritious choices when selecting their menu options.  We are also going to a calendar format with a 2 week cycle so our students will have more choices throughout the month.

 

We will have our new menu’s posted. Click here and take look and see the new menu options!!

 

We also have a “Going Green” link (click here) on our website that will automatically email our new menus to parents that wish to sign up for this option.

 

We hope all of these changes will be a positive change for our parents and students.
