Go for the GREEN!
In the month of St. Patrick's Day, green is everywhere: shamrocks, clovers, and even on leprechauns. But are greens on your plate?
Dark green leafy vegetables offer necessary nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, folate, vitamin K, magnesium, calcium, iron, and potassium. But the benefits don't stop there! Greens also promote good vision, support immune function, and may help prevent certain cancers. Plus, dark leafy greens aid in regulating blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. Talk about a SUPER food!!!
No negative balances!
Thanks to the generous donation of a community partner, on this day, June 1st - the last day of school, we officially have NO STUDENTS with a negative lunch balance. Enjoy your summer! ~ TK Food Service
Holiday "Pay it Forward"!
In the spirit of “paying it forward” during this holiday season, we had a group of families come together to donate funds to clear any negative balances in Thornapple Kellogg School District, and deposit additional funds into the account of students with extenuating circumstances. The donors wanted to remain anonymous.
The donor wanted to “spread a little bit of joy to as many families as possible”.
With this generous donation, they were able to clear up high negative balances in all four buildings, and make additional deposits. Thirty nine families benefited from this act of kindness.
We hope you have a wonderful restful holiday with family and friends.
