Students at St. Anthony’s are provided with healthy and nutritious food at breakfast and lunch and a healthy snack in the afternoon. We know that children have the energy and the focus to study effectively if they eat well, and we are especially concerned with teaching our students about the importance of nutrition in their daily lives, both now and in the future.
Make sure your child’s teacher is aware of any food allergies or any religious practices that might affect the student’s participation in the food schedule. Children with special needs should plan to bring lunch from home, but it’s important that special needs are known by their teachers as well.
Lunch menus are sent home in classroom newsletters every week, and they are also available here on this web page.
