  • 1 oz. cheese stick
  • Individual bag of grain based chips

  • Choice of milk (not required)
All a student has to do is come through the lunch line carrying their lunchbox and they may receive a LUNCHBOX BUDDY at NO CHARGE!  All the parent has to do is pack a sandwich!

First Graders Hatch Chicks

Mrs. Spell's classUsing the Irwin EMC Grant she received, Mrs. Haley Spell purchased an incubator and classroom supplies to hatch chicks in her grade 1 class. The students looked at the eggs daily using a candeler to see embryo development. The chicks hatched right after the Thanksgiving break and they had an exceptional hatch rate: 14 of 15 eggs hatched!! The students have learned so much from this experience. Way to go, Mrs. Spell!
