A-Z Salad Bar
April 28th, Tuesday @ Cottonwood Middle School
Dear Parent or Guardian:
Students will have the opportunity to learn about a variety of delicious fruits and vegetables as part of our “A to Z Salad Bar” special event. Sponsored by Sodexo, your school’s foodservice provider, this fun and educational program is designed to explain the many benefits of eating fruits and vegetables, while introducing children to some new exotic varieties of produce.
The event includes a jumbo self-service salad bar containing fruits and vegetables that begin with each letter of the alphabet. During this event, students will be encouraged to sample a variety of healthy foods and to include more fruits and vegetables in meals and snacks. In addition, we’ll distribute fun activity sheets focusing on our featured produce, as well as informational flyers for children to take home and share with their family. I encourage you to review the information flyers you receive, and to reinforce the learning by including the featured produce in your home meals.
Focusing on our students’ health is something we do throughout the school year. In fact, we frequently display colorful communications materials that encourage student consumption of healthier foods and promote active lifestyles on a monthly basis.
If you have any questions on our “A to Z Salad Bar” or any other school foodservice event, please feel free to contact me at 928-639-4703.
