We now have a SALAD BAR in our cafeteria!

If you follow us on Twitter, you may have seen our tweet about the new salad bar in our cafeteria. We are excited to be able to offer all students an assortment of fresh fruits and veggies during each lunch shift.  The salad bar is available for all lunch buyers and can be purchased for $2.00 for non-lunch buyers ($2.50 for adults).  Students are able to take as much as they would like, we just ask that students only take what they are able to eat.  Students are able to get seconds when snack time is called.  Your support at home in talking about the importance of not wasting food is appreciated!  Even the teachers are excited about this new addition to NES and will also be enjoying the convenience and health benefits of daily fruits and veggies.  Typically there are two salad dressings available, but students are always welcome to pack their own if they wish. 

In order to promote health and food safety, Ms. Parker, our cafeteria manager, will be changing the tongs on the salad bar after each lunch shift so that clean tongs are available for students to use.  

We are asking for parent volunteers to help students during each lunch shift to learn the salad bar routine especially for our little ones (managing a tray and tongs at the same time can be tough!).   If you are able to help, please sign up for a time (or more) on this Sign Up Genius.  Thanks for your support!!
