National School Lunch ProgramNATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH WEEK IS OCT. 15-19  

October 15-19 marks National School Lunch Week. Created in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy, National School Lunch Week celebrates the benefits of the National School Lunch Program (the largest federal child nutrition program).

Here in District 15, our Nutrition Services Department serves 7,300 meals each day that meet the USDA's strict nutritional guidelines, appeal to students' wide- ranging appetites, and still fit into families' tightening budgets.

Many of our students rely on the National School Lunch Program as their primary source of nutrition for the day. These breakfasts and lunches help improve students' attendance rates, test scores, behavior and health.

Thank you to our Nutrition Services staff for the work they do in our schools!

To learn more about the importance of the National School Lunch Program, please watch the video above, featuring District 15's cafeterias, staff and students.

There's still time to take the school boundaries priorities survey, issued by the District 15 Boundaries Task Force. The survey will remain open through Friday, Oct. 19.
Results from the survey will help the group form its decisions and next steps in examining the District 15 school boundaries. 

The Boundaries Task Force held its first meeting on Thursday, Sept. 27. Of the 224 people who applied to be part of the group, co-chairs Sid Aman and Nipesh Patel selected 37 members representing all schools and geographic areas of the school district. Membership includes District 15 parents and residents without children enrolled in District 15 schools. 

The task force was formed for two reasons: To mitigate capacity concerns at several schools and to address community issues with the current boundary lines.

There is not a firm timeline in place for if and when school boundaries might change. Once the task force determines 3-4 possible scenarios for new boundaries, they will be shared with the community and refined based upon community feedback. After this takes place, the recommendations will be presented to the board for its consideration.

Girls in fifth and sixth grade (and their parents) are invited to attend the Township High School District 211 annual Girls in Engineering, Math & Science (GEMS) extravaganza!  

This event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 2 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Conant High School in Hoffman Estates. Girls will experience hands-on interactive activities and meet others interested in STEM. 

Registration opens Nov. 30 on Township High School District 211's website.
