In May of 2016, Nutrition Services and School Wellness applied for USDA’s HealthierUS School Challenge awards for all of our middle schools and high schools that participate in the National School Breakfast and National School Lunch program.
The HealthierUS School Challenge: Smarter Lunchrooms is a voluntary certification initiative that recognizes schools creating healthier school environments through promotion of nutrition and physical activity.
One of the most important institutions in our society is public education. Of the approximately 55 million K-12 aged children in the United States, it is estimated that 90 percent are enrolled in public schools. Second only to parenting, the longstanding institution of public education will have the greatest influence on America’s future.
In Colorado, we’ve experienced an ongoing discussion around the adequacy of resources for our public schools with mixed results.
Students and families throughout our communities will be able to access free lunches this summer. Meals will be provided to any child under the age of 18. Adults with a child will be able to eat at "no charge" until funding dollars run out.
Meals will be provided at Countryside Village, Roth Rock Dell Park, Kanemoto Park, Carr Park and the Longmont Youth Center. Please review the flyer for days, times and activities.

Several dozen teenagers stood around the perimeter of converted warehouse space in Longmont looking on as a roughly 100-pound robot zipped around, performing acrobatic turns and deftly scooping up modified milk crates before depositing them in wooden baskets high off the floor.
As we close out this school year, we want to wish the graduating class of 2018 congratulations and good luck on your next adventures! This month’s Stapp Inspires Educator Highlight takes a look at the other side of the desk. We want to recognize an ‘Outstanding Graduate’ from the class of 2018. This lead us to Silver Creek High School’s Parker Nicholas.
