May 3rd is School Lunch Hero Day. Here at Woodbury, our school lunch heroines are Ms. Keri and Ms. Daisy. Everyday, they help set up breakfast, snack, and lunch for hundreds of our students to purchase. Healthy choices are always available, including an unlimited fresh salad bar! They love to decorate the cafeteria seasonally, wear silly hats, and get to know the students. Despite how many students come through the lines each day, they still know the children by name and happily greet them. They even have birthday prizes ready for the students!

For School Lunch Hero Day, the students wrote them special thank you notes. They are all so heartwarming to read, and just goes to show why we teach school values like compassion to our children.

Next year, when the Kindergarteners become 1st graders, they will have the opportunity to buy snack and lunch from the cafeteria! Parents may set up a school lunch money account at MySchoolBucks to eliminate the need to send cash to school.
