This week is National School Lunch Week, and Shuford Elementary served up heaping helpings of fun and excitement in their cafeteria! October 13-17, 2014 has been set aside as the week to create an awareness of the over 30 million students who eat school lunch each day in school cafeterias across the nation. The Shuford Elementary School cafeteria manager, Tammy Thomas, invited several guests to make special appearances in the lunchroom this week, including Conrad the Crawdad from the Hickory Crawdad’s Team and Congressman Patrick McHenry, a Republican US Representative from the 10th Congressional district of North Carolina! The students and staff members enjoyed celebrating the theme “Get in the Game with School Lunch”, and they teamed up to teach kids the importance of a balanced, healthy diet! Special thanks to these hard working ladies who serve up fresh and delicious meals each day to our students. We have great food service providers throughout the Newton-Conover City Schools District; however, these every day heroes at Shuford are: Tammy Thomas (Manager), Emily Settlemyre, Wendy Eckerd, Glenda Shook, and Sarah McCrary.
