The groups are comprised of students representing all grades. So every Monday this same group will meet and eat together. I love family groups because it really gives the student a few more familiar faces here at school that are older or younger than they are. There are so many opportunities during the school year that a friendly face makes all of the difference. It is heart warming to look out after school and see a middle school student voluntarily playing tether ball with a first grader. These connections can start with family groups.
Lunch is comprised of a hot or cold specialty sandwich that changes weekly. Juice and fresh fruit as well as carrots and chips are all offered. The first family group sandwich is caprese (mozzarella, fresh tomato, and basil).
Ask your child who their family group leader is and where they met for lunch. Hopefully they will make a new friend in family groups
