Smith Cafeteria

Student lunches are now $3.00.  Following our triennial review by the state last May, we were required to increase our lunch price $.25.

All other prices will stay the same.  Milk is $0.50 and snacks are $0.25 to $0.75.  Small salads are $1.75 and PBJ Uncrustables are $1.50.  Students must have cash to purchase any snacks.  Milk can be purchased using cash or money from their account.

Salads and Uncrustables are purchased using money from student accounts.  Students write their name and PIN# on a clipboard at the snack table.  Students’ accounts are then charged after lunch for those items.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at Smith (297-5335) or via email, miller.linda@oakwoodschools.org.

What's Cooking

We want the students to try the lunches. To help make that happen:

If a student buys lunch and does not like it, they can bring their tray into the kitchen and get a sandwich instead.

There's an app for that!!

Smith Elementary lunch menus are now available on a new, free app called My School Menus.

To use, download the app then type in the district name, Oakwood, when directed. From there, you will type in the school name, Smith. Choose the Lunch menu and click Go to Menu. The current menu will be displayed.

On the menu, you can click on menu items to see the nutrition facts for the item. Be sure and get My School Menus to stay up to date on your student's school lunches.

Kids' Kitchen Council

A student group, Kids' Kitchen Council, is helping Cafeteria Manager Linda Miller develop healthy and tasty lunch ideas.

We had SO many students apply and we want to hear all their ideas so we are breaking them into three groups this year.  One will start meeting in Oct, the second in Jan, and the third in the spring. We can't wait to see what they come up with to try!
