Messages from Colette
I just wanted to say thank you! to all my fellow foodies who helped make this year’s Staff Appreciation Luncheons so successful. Every luncheon was a success and the staff absolutely loved them. A special thanks to Susan, Monica, and Linda who most often answered the call to help with clean up, too. Thanks ladies! I want to also take this opportunity to ask for input for next season. If anyone has any ideas, suggestions, etc. I would really appreciate it. Email me with suggestions. Thanks again and have a great summer!! As program director for PTA I am looking for new ideas/suggestions for next school year. If anyone knows of something you think might be a great program to bring in for the kids/community I would love to hear about it. PTA is already beginning to gear up and plan for next year so let me know ASAP. Email me at or give me a call at 349-0234 Thanks! Colette Kraatz.

Students should plan on “brown bagging” their own lunches the last week of school as the kitchen needs take inventory, pack and move out for construction. We are looking forward to a new kitchen and a new “commons,” formerly the cafeteria and MPR, which will be fully operational by the start of school next fall. Thank you to Kathy and her entire crew for a phenomenal year! The climate, food service, etc. have never been better!
