Halloween Hoopla Fun

Staff in LPS cafeterias went all out for Halloween this year. Here's some of the great photos we received from the day:

    

Fredstrom staff dressed as Emoji's, and decorated their wall with emoji faces.

         

Randolph staff dressed as Minions, and decorated their car as a bubblegum machine for the school's parking lot trunk or treat. One of their staff even entered the pumpkin decorating contest, with her version of a pumpkin bubblegum machine. Very creative!

    

Riley staff had a student drawing contest for decorating the napkin holders. Aren't they cute!

              

Adams staff hung fun signs throughout the serving area.

Prescott staff dressed in colorful costumes.

 

Looking on the Bright Side

The cafeteria staff at Adams Elementary love to join in on the Red Ribbon Week fun. The school's slogan for the week was "Dress for Success over Drugs", and each day included a dress-up theme. We caught our staff looking lively on "Be Bright and Say 'NO!'" (Neon Day), with vibrant colored shirts and wigs. Don't they look fun!

 

 

Congratulations to our Rousseau Kitchen Manager, Rebecca Coatney, on receiving level 3 certification in the School Nutrition Association.

She is 1 of 104 certified Manager's in Nebraska and the only certified manager from Lincoln Public Schools.

Rebecca was also installed as a member of the Executive Board of the Nebraska School Nutrition Association at the state conference in South Sioux City Nebraska.

 

Solar Eclipse - Experience for All

Students and staff at all LPS schools were invited to enjoy the Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21st. Cafeteria staff were able to take some time out of their busy day, relax and enjoy the eclipse totality together. It was an amazing experience, and one we'll remember for many years to come.

              

 

Welcome New Kindergartners!

Kindergartners at McPhee Elementary wanted to welcome the new incoming Kindergarten class by decorating brown paper bags. The bags were then used for a special Welcome Breakfast last Spring. Aren't they cute!

 

Adams Elementary Kitchen Remake

When District painters told Cafeteria Manager Yvonne that she could pick anything she wanted to put on the kitchen walls, she contemplated some big ideas! Using the school's mascot, and some clever phrases, she created vibrant new walls with healthy messages. Great job Yvonne and District paint staff!
