Help Needed in the Cafeteria

Would you like to spend more time at Canyon Creek?  Would you like to get to know more students?  Would you like to get paid for your time?  Well...we have the job for you!  We are in need of a Lunchroom Monitor!  This is a very important job on our campus.  By having 2 lunchroom monitors, we are able to provide our 3rd-5th grade students Lunch Recess.  If you are interested, please visit the RRISD website to apply and contact Jenny Kasson @ jenny_kasson@roundrockisd.org.

Education Go Get It Week

Next week is Education Go Get It Week! One of our RRISD goals is to insure college readiness and encourage students to continue their education beyond high school. Our campus staff will kick off the week by wearing their college shirts/colors on Monday, September 23rd. Please feel free to encourage your child to participate by wearing a college shirt, too. We are looking forward to a fun week of discovering where our staff members attended college, estimating how many 2013 Westwood High School graduates went on to college, creating chalk displays on our sidewalks and more. We will conclude the week with staff and students wearing college or university t-shirts. RRISD will be hosting a College Fair on Thursday, September 26th, 6-8pm at Round Rock High School. All RRISD families are welcome to attend. Thank you for supporting Education Go Get It Week!

Changes in A La Carte Menu at Lunch:

Based on feedback from parents and many of you, RRISD Food Services has eliminated ice cream and chips from the a la carte menu this year.  They will still offer an all-fruit bar and yogurt cups.  All elementary a la carte items meet the Healthier US School Challenge Gold Standard and the Institute of Medicine standards. Parents may return the a la carte letter in the first day take-home packet if they would like to put limits on their student's account.  

Apply for Free and Reduced Online

As of August 1st, the Food Service Department is accepting free & reduced meal applications online at:  http://roundrockisd.schoollunchapp.com  As a reminder, all students must submit a new application each school year.  If a student received meal benefits last year, they will continue to receive the same benefits until their new application is processed or through October 7th.  The online application is easy to use, processing time is much quicker, and it's one less piece of paper to handle. We encourage as many students as possible to apply early and online!
