One School One Book Update: In chapter 11 of The World According to Humphrey, Humphrey pulled the plug on the TV and A.J.'s family had to come up with screen free ways to entertain themselves. Today at school, students came up with lists of screen free options for tonight at home and we want to see what you came up with! Post your screen free photos in the comments!

Celebrate our LGS & WMS School Lunch Heroes on Friday, May 3rd, 2024. School Lunch Hero Day is held the first Friday in May of each year and marks a day to recognize our school nutrition professionals’ outstanding and important work. The school cafeteria/recess and its staff are about more than just lunches—they’re about interacting with students and providing a great experience when in the cafeteria and at recess. A few other things that the cafeteria staff do are: make sure students get fed, manage the federal lunch program (which is a task!), and make sure students with allergies have appropriate food choices. As the saying goes, not all heroes wear capes (some wear aprons!). Lgs Staff: Nichole Boswell, Jenny Bowen, Janeen Chave, Taunya Meeks, Kathy Robinson, Susan Hedgepath, Patty Schrock, Cathy Loy WMS Staff: Kim Widmer, Kirby Gevelinger, Krista Owsley, Carol Schinzel, Pam Board, Riley Metzger, Amy Larsen Thank our school cafeteria/recess staff on School Lunch Hero Day May 3rd 2024. Have a great Summer! -- Sonya Link Food Service Director Washington GSD #52 D52Slink@D52Schools.com
