Daily Announcements for Thursday – June 13, 2019

posted Jun 13, 2019, 5:50 AM by Linda Marx   [ updated Jun 13, 2019, 5:50 AM ]

Today is DAY 3

June Theme - June’s “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme is “esteem building.”


Quote of the Day – This week’s quote is from an unknown author.  “When a collection of brilliant minds, hearts, and talents comes together…expect a masterpiece.”  We all come across challenges in life, things that seem impossible to do.  Look for help from your friends, teachers and parents to overcome these challenges.  They may be able to teach you a new skill or help you to find a solution to the problem.  Have a great summer!


Today’s lunch entrees are:

  • Assorted Pasta Favorites
  • Assorted Sandwiches
