We’ll also be offering students a Hot Cocoa Bar instead of chocolate milk on Friday, December 3rd and Friday, December 10th in the Cafeteria for 1st through 8th Grade. Our Preschool 3s, Pre-K and Kindergarten will get a chocolate milk treat on those Fridays!
Flik is proud to provide sweet treats for our upcoming Christmas Class Celebrations. Room Parents will be placing those orders for their class / grade level.
December's Tasty Tuesday: Tuesday, December 14
Have you heard about #TastyTuesdays? Each month, Chef Sergio shares a tasting experience for our students in Preschool 2s through 8th grade. By giving kids a small taste of a new flavor in their classrooms, we hope to encourage our kids to expand their palette, try something new, and learn more about nutrition. This month, students will first be tasting Honey Cinnamon Cranberry Roasted Butternut Squash. Follow along on our Instagram and Facebook for images of our #tastytuesdays!
