Student\Parent Participation in School Nutrition
We like to involve the students and their parents with some of our fun events like:
- Thanksgiving Dinner (for the public)
- Dr. Seuss week at Brown Primary
- Muffins for Mom!
- Donuts for Dad!
- Feed your body feed your mind
- Elementary Parents Night
- Fun Run
- Taste Testing (High School)
Feed your body. Feed your mind - This program's purpose is to get kids to read. During this program we promote a book about food and one day we will serve the food in the book as lunch. When we serve the food we have a drawing of names. The student who wins the drawing will receive a copy of that book. The classroom and library will receive a copy of the book too.
Dr. Seuss Week - During the Dr. Seuss Week we promote a Dr. Seuss book and have something in the cafeteria that represents that book. For the 09-10 school year we used the book I Am Sam. In the cafeteria we had posters and we served green eggs and ham, made with food coloring of course.
Muffins for Mom - Once a year we provide muffins for moms who want to eat with their children at school.
Donuts for Dad - Once a year we provide donuts for dads who want to eat with their children at school.
Thanksgiving Dinner (for the public) - We provide a Thanksgiving dinner for the public, however, this meal is not free.
Elementary Parents Night
Taste Testing (High School) - In order to serve food that we know the kids will like, we need their opinion on the food. So, we started taste testings that involve bringing in new food and offering free samples to the children and ask them to give their thoughts on how it tastes. It's enjoyable for the kids to try new things and helpful for us to figure out what new foods we should bring to the cafeteria
Fun Run - We serve orange slices to the participants of the annual Fun Run.
