The 4-H Food Challenge is a contest that allows 4-H members to demonstrate their culinary knowledge and skills.  Teams are randomly assigned to a contest category (protein, fruit and vegetable, grains, and dairy) and provided with a set of ingredients that are representative of that category.  Using the ingredients provided, teams develop a recipe and prepare the dish within 40 minutes.  Teams then make a presentation to a judging panel, explaining the preparations steps, serving size, food safety concerns, nutritional value, and cost of the dish.  

SRMS had two teams participate in the food challenge on May 9th.  They both came in fourth place, which is outstanding for the first year of this competition! 
  
Our Senior Team was Nikera Mays, Russell “Todd” Nichols, and Dallas Hatcher.  The senior team has been invited to compete at the state competition at Virginia Tech this summer.

The Junior Team was Jordan Kennedy, Madison Underwood, Kelsi Hartsell, Erik Torres, and Anne Marie Smith.

             MEAL CHARGE CUT-OFF

 Towards the end of each school year the School Nutrition Program establishes a cut-off date for meal charges in the school cafeteria. This cut-off date is established to give the program sufficient time to collect outstanding charges and clear up accounts before the end of the school year. This year the last day that students will be allowed to charge school meals is Friday, May 8th . Beginning on Monday, May 11th, students must either have money with them when they come through the serving line or have sufficient funds on their student meal account to cover what is purchased. If a student comes to the cafeteria to eat breakfast or lunch and does not have the funds to cover the purchase, cafeteria staff will give the student an alternate meal of toast & milk for breakfast and a sandwich and milk for lunch until funds are received. Parents are always welcomed to call the cafeteria manager at their child’s school to check their child’s account balance. They may also call the School Nutrition Office at 586-1045 ext. 224. Any questions concerning the cut-off date for cafeteria charges may be directed to Karen Arthur, School Nutrition Supervisor at 586-1045 ext. 224. The School Nutrition Program truly appreciates your business.

Jim Cameron Memorial Walk
Jim Careron Walk

Staunton River Middle School was invited to attend an informational meeting about the Jim Cameron Memorial Walk.  At that meeting we were moved by the opportunity to help an organization so focused on helping the community.  The staff wanted to give something back to Lake Christian Ministries to thank them for all they do for our students and their families.
