All students (Lunch Bunch included) need to bring a lunch from home every day. There is a microwave for students to use. Please follow these guidelines when sending microwave-able food:
▪ Send food in microwave-able containers if it is to be heated.
▪ Send a plastic spoon/fork if it is needed.
▪ Send a napkin to cover the item in the microwave.
▪ Limit the number of times per week that microwave-able food is sent. Only teachers are allowed to operate the microwave, and most teachers also need to eat their own lunch during this time.
All items in the lunch should be ready-made and easy for your child to handle. Teachers are available to assist with lunches, but students should learn to open most containers independently. Send items that your child will eat, but keep your child’s health in mind.
There is an official snack time for all grades. Please include a small, simple-to-eat snack with your child’s lunch each day. Students will drink water with snack. Do not include a drink for snack time. Teachers will provide individual classroom instructions on this subject.
The NCA Spirit Committee, whose purpose is to fundraise for the school, offers school lunches on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and a daily snack program. The food is donated so all the funds raised by the program is profit for NCA. Last year the program raised more than $13,500 for the school.
