Don't forget you can also order milk to go with home lunches- you can either order on-line or by sending in your milk money weekly or monthly to the office in an envelope marked with your child(ren)'s name. Please do not send in milk money daily- it is difficult to keep track of all those quarters in the office. Thank You.
