Dear Sierra Verde Families,For many years, Sierra Verde has had a wonderful tradition of a Thanksgiving Lunch at school. If you have experienced Thanksgiving lunch over the past few years, you know that we have 100s of extra family members come to enjoy lunch with their children. You might also have noticed that the lines are very long and continue to grow each year. Although we value our traditions, the cafeteria and our kitchen does not have the capacity to cook enough food for all of our students, and our community. This year, we will continue with our Thanksgiving Lunch tradition, but for students only. We appreciate your understanding in this change.We would also like to start a new tradition, providing food to families in need through St. Mary’s Food Bank. If you are able, please send your child to school with a food donation to our food drive during the week of November 6-17. We would greatly appreciate this gesture.
