We Need YOU!

Would you like to make a difference in your child's school?  Well, here's how! 



Every year, your family receives a Free and Reduced Price Meal Application. It is important to fill out this form and return it to school for two reasons:


1. The application lets us know if your child is eligible for free or reduced price school meals. Children from families that earn below a certain income level can receive free or reduced price lunch and breakfast at school.

2. Applications are used to match funding our school receives for resources for students such as books and classroom furniture.  


The application is easy to fill out and easy to understand.  Also, you do not have to worry about your information being shared with others because application information is CONFIDENTIAL.


Support the School Breakfast Program today by completing your application!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Renee Hillis at 361-749-1220.
