“Our collaborative efforts with the building level staff and administration have been hugely successful and show that bringing our minds together brings out the best in our programs,” Staffan said. “As we move forward, we will continue to work with district and building administration, staff, and teachers, along with our parent organizations, to build our network of support and continue bringing new and fun strategies to our breakfast and lunch programs.”
Being an award winner of this program, Clark-Shawnee received a “Super Star” electronic medallion to place on their school website, menus and other community focused commendations that shows their work in serving meals, the release stated.
