    News from the Lunchroom (2018-2019)

    My name is Jo Simonian and I am the lunch lady here at Whittier. I would like to
    invite your child (and you, too!) to breakfast and/or lunch any day throughout the
    school year. I always love seeing the kids in line. They definitely brighten my day.

    Breakfast is served every day starting at 7:35 am. Cereal is always available or they
    can choose a main entrée that changes each day . The entrée menu includes egg
    and cheese muffins, mini turkey footballs, egg omelet and toast, yogurt parfait
    breakfast pizza, mini blueberry waffles and pancakes, and oatmeal among others.
    Fresh fruit, milk, and juice is also available. Breakfast is $2.00 for the students and
    $3.25 for adults. If they would like both the entrée and a cereal just add 50 cents.

    Lunches start at 10:30 am for the second and third graders, 10:50 am for kindergarten
    and first graders, and 11:10 am for the 4th and 5th graders. There are always several
    main entrees available daily including a vegetarian option and yogurt. My favorite
    part of the lunch menu is the amazing salad bar. Fresh fruits and vegetable are
    served every lunch. These can include apples, oranges, bananas, melons, berries,
    pears, kiwi, grapes and others. There are also a wide variety of vegetables includ-
    ing, tomato, cucumber, red and green bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, beans,
    and salad. Milk is also included. Lunch is $3.00 for students and $4.75 for adults.

    Menus are available online at seattleschools.org in the nutrition services section.
    I’ll also have them available in the cafeteria and in the rack close to the front
    doors.

    Every student in Seattle Public Schools is assigned a four digit pin number which
    they can use to purchase food at breakfast and lunch. Typically, the account is
    pre-Ioaded with money by either writing a check made payable to CNS (Child Nu-
    trition Services), payment by cash, or online at www.paypams.com. I can accept
    both check and cash at school.

    I’m looking forward to seeing everyone.
