MEH Lunch Services is collaborating with the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association to promote the importance of eating breakfast and drinking milk! From May 13 - 24, students can participate in a drawing for a $100 Target gift card by purchasing breakfast with milk before school.
An entry is created whenever a student buys breakfast and milk from the cafeteria before school. Winners will be drawn at random. There will be two winners in this contest - one for each week.
Mark your calendars! The MEH Field Day will be on Monday, June 10.
Parents will be needed to man fun field day stations either in the morning or the afternoon as well as donate/lend items such as coolers, water, ice etc.
