To the Families of the Public Schools of Northborough and Southborough:Welcome to WOW, otherwise known as "Wonders of Wellness." This newsletter is intended to provide you with bite-sized, but important wellness tips that are related to our vision of helping all community members to achieve healthy bodies, healthy minds and healthy attitudes.This newsletter is intentionally designed to be brief and to be user-friendly for both parents and students. Each newsletter will include input from our Food Services Department, Physical Education/Wellness Department, and from our Health Services/Nursing Department. It is our hope that you will find helpful tidbits, ideas, and perhaps activities to share with your family members in each edition.Our goal is to offer a newsletter that our families find useful, and that takes very little time to read, as we appreciate that our families are busy! In addition, we are interested in your feedback and ideas; if you have questions, thoughts, or input about topics to address in future issues of WOW, please contact Food Service Manager Kyle Parson.
Our web based menu program, NutriSlice, allows students and parents to access the nutritional value and ingredients of the food we serve. With our growing menu selections, this tool will allow our students and parents the information they need to make healthy dietary choices.
Please remember that we have Nutrikids and Myschoolbucks available in all of our schools. Nutrikids is our point of sale system, allowing students to purchase their lunches using a PIN number. Myschoolbucks is a great tool that families can use to see account balances and to track what their students are purchasing at lunch.
If you haven't already done so, please log into myschoolbucks.com and set up an account. You can make payments anytime and anywhere, check balances, and get low balance notifications. You will need your student identification number in order to set up an account. This number is found on many school documents including schedules. If you have trouble identifying the student identification number, please call the school office.
Welcome your feedback
We strive to prepare foods that kids want to eat, offering foods that are nutritious, with a variety of options available to please our students. We look forward to developing new menu items using local fruits and vegetables while gathering input from our students and families. Food is an important contributor to students' learning and growth, and our food services department is committed to following the trends of the ever-changing and evolving tastes of our students to meet the needs of their growing minds.
