We are celebrating National School Lunch Week from October 10-14, 2022. This week, our preschools will serve fresh cantaloupes, peaches, pears and strawberries for students during lunch. Our elementaries will serve vegetarian chef salad, delicious roasted creole potatoes, corn on the cob, and tuna salad sandwiches while the middle schools will serve chicken noodle soup, mixed vegetables, and tasty Mexican street corn. Our high schools, for their part, will serve beef stew, cilantro lime brown rice, tomato soup, and fresh broccoli. And those are only a few of the wonderful choices our students will enjoy this week, FMS. This "Peace, Love & School Lunch" is a celebration with more vegetables with every lunch, fresh fruit daily, and entrées that include whole grains & lean protein. National School Lunch Week promotes the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom. Want to see all of this month’s items?

You change the lives of the children of our communities, and all of us at Farmington Municipal Schools thank you for your commitment to excellence and creativity in bringing excitement to the classroom.

As we take a moment to #ThankATeacher this week, make sure you continue to celebrate with your peers all of the wonderful things that are happening at our district.
