Schools Recognized with USDA's HealthierUS School Challenge Awards

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.

Education, and the greatness of our nation

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.

Summer Lunch Program for Students

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.

Congratulations Class of 2018

Public Education – Empowering the Future
 
Public education is one of the most powerful systems for driving positive change in our society. 
Across the United States, approximately 90 percent of our children attend a public school – and in the St. Vrain Valley, that percentage is even higher.

Altona students build passion for education equality through service learning

Seventh grade students at Altona Middle School raised over $4,000 for the Malala Foundation as part of their 7th grade Language Arts Class. What began as a classroom reading and study of the book, “I am Malala” culminated in a fundraising gala where students presented speeches of advocacy for educational equity, musical pieces, artwork and handmade crafts. Members of the community were invited to attend the event enjoy the presentations and the money raised from donations and purchased goods went to the Malala Foundation.
