Dear Parents/Guardians:

Pine City Schools are  excited to offer parents a more convenient way to deposit funds into their family lunch accounts.  Parents will now be able to add funds directly from their Wordware family site with a simple button click.  Parents will no longer need to manage separate usernames and passwords for other sites to make lunch payments. Parents can determine the payment method and the amount they would like to add to their account, as well as some added functions for automatic low balance notifications and recurring payments.  This easy-to-use method will make adding funds to your student’s account much easier and faster.

    This solution provides:

  • Secure online payment processing (PCI compliance)
  • Flexible payment options
  • An easy to use, intuitive interface
  • Receipts plus much more

National School Breakfast Week 2015 Highlights
Nutrition Education in the Classroom
Former Food and Nutrition Director, Abby Olson RD, and Dietetic Intern, Hannah Colby, taught several kindergarten classrooms a lesson on trying new foods through a book called "I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato" by Lauren Child. Students also gave examples of new foods they tried and liked when they thought they would not like the new food by just looking at it. Students were given samples of a dessert hummus and tried a fruit many had never tried before, a mango!!! The snacks were a big hit with the kindergarten students! Check out some photos below.

After trying the dessert hummus students were given quick surveys. They were asked whether or not they liked the dessert hummus and a whopping 95% gave a thumbs up to liking the hummus!  

May 1st is School Lunch Hero Day. This is a day to recognize the kitchen staff that work hard to prepare meals for students, staff and guests everyday! Please give a big thank you today and everyday to your lunch ladies!
