A letter from the Food Service Director

posted Sep 6, 2016, 5:00 AM by Linda Burns

Hello and welcome back to school.  We are excited about all that is happening in food nutrition, as well as our school breakfast and lunch programs.  Moving forward, we are making several changes to improve the nutrition and quality of the meal choices we offer our students.

As we continue to explore new and exciting recipes that are appealing to our students,  we are also finding ways to infuse more nutrition into our recipes. This summer our school district was one of eight districts asked to showcase a recipe on WMUR-TV’s “Lunch Lessons”.  On August 1, 2016 I went to Manchester and prepared our gluten-free chocolate brownie made with black beans instead of flour.  The added protein from the black beans makes the brownie extremely nutrient dense.  Last spring we served the black bean brownies at our health fair at Conway Elementary and they were a huge hit with both students and parents.  If you would like to view how the recipe is made, here is the link:

We are focusing on making new breakfast items like fruit muffins infused with pureed chick peas that add both a rich texture, but also added protein from the chick peas.  Although we are totally transparent and disclose all the ingredients we use, most students don’t even realize they are eating so healthy.  We will continue to explore and provide opportunities for students to try new things.  One way of doing this is a program we call “Try-it-Tuesdays”.  This is a program where we allow the stdents in all schools to sample a product we would to offer on our menus and get their feedback.  All the recipes for the “Try-it-Tuesdays” program are nutritionally balanced and meet the U.S.D.A. guidelines.

I welcome all to come, taste, and see all the goodness we are delivering to the students in our community.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.  My phone number is 603-356-4355 and my email is

Yours Truly,

Support our School! Clip Box Tops!

Welcome back to school, parents!

This year, our school will be participating in the Box Tops for Education™ program. My name is Catalina Kirsch and I'm thrilled to be the Box Tops Coordinator for Kennett Middle School. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Box Tops are each worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school. This school year, our school's earnings goal is $1,000.00. Let's top last year's earnings of $840! Well done, everyone!

To help our school, just look for pink Box Tops on products, clip them, bundle them in sets of 50,and send them to school in a ziploc bag labeled with your student's name and grade. Funds directly benefit your student's 8th grade trip fee, whether for this year or next. For more information on the Box Tops for Education program, including a list of participating products and our school's progress, visit and look up Kennett Middle School. Be sure to become a member to receive exclusive coupons and recipes and learn about extra ways for our school to earn.

Fall Sports Parents' meeting is Aug 24th. Bring your box tops tops to the collection bin in the school lobby.  Send them in on the first day of school. Look out for Sep 1 expiration dates!  I hope you're excited for everything we can do this year with Box Tops! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at I'm here to make our school's Box Tops for Education program a huge success this year.

Thanks for your help! Catalina Kirsch
