Local elementary school launches school wise reading program today

Principal Hall at Bell Avenue Elementary School in Sacramento launched a school-wide reading program today – just in time for Read Across America Day.

Thank you amazing Food Ladies

 Thank you amazing Food Ladies

As the sun rises and many of our alarm clocks are just starting to buzz, the food service staff report to campus ready to start the day! The kitchens are busy with multiple meals in process, supply orders in the making and smiling faces to serve. The focus is offering healthy meals, making adjustments to the many special requests, accurate counting and supporting the classroom programs. One example of their dedication is the breakfast program. Breakfast is an important start to the day. Each site has worked hard and participation is up!

In addition to offering meals to students at no charge, staff contributions have provided for new kitchen equipment, cafeteria tables, vehicles, computers, catering supplies and more to come!
