Dear Parent,

The beginning of the school year is approaching, and we want to extend a warm welcome to let you know that Chartwells School Dining Services has exciting plans for your school meal program. School meals remain nutritious, a great value and more satisfying than ever for both students and parents. This year, Chartwells has exciting events and new menu items planned for your child’s school cafeteria. Our job is to make sure that we serve healthy, well-balanced meals that student will enjoy eating. We also strive to make the dining experience a special one, so we’ve planned activities that will appeal to all of our students. Below are some of the highlights to help begin the new school year.


Menu Highlights

This year we will be offering some of student’s favorite foods featured in our Monthly Menus. I will also continue to introducing new food items to the menu that is both nutritious and delicious, including whole grains, new vegetables and fruits. Please never hesitate to reach out to our office with your children’s favorite menu selection…


Simply Good

Throughout the year, students will have the opportunity to learn about healthier food options through fun and engaging activities that we have planned in the school cafeteria through our Simply Good program. Simply Good has a culinary emphasis that focuses on healthier meal options, especially ones with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. We will begin the year with our ‘What’s Your Hometown Specialty’ theme event that includes a ‘Join Us for Lunch Day’ that is open to parents and adults of our elementary school students and an exciting ‘What’s Your Hometown Specialty’ student recipe and video contest for secondary school students. Look for more information on these special events coming soon.
