This week we recognize our school nutrition professionals!

Between preparing healthy meals for America’s students, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies and offering service with a smile, school nutrition professionals are true Heroes!

School Nutrition Employee Week provides the perfect opportunity to recognize the hardworking professionals in our school cafeterias. We have designated this week to remind everyone—directors, managers, parents, students, and school staff —that school nutrition employees are superheroes that deserve some recognition.

Many thanks to Betty Thurston and the Transportation Department staff for hosting a beautiful reception at the new Oilville facility this morning to ring in the holidays.

Those attending the December 10 meeting of the Goochland County School Board were treated to a performance by Goochland Middle School’s newest musical group, “Out of the Blue.” Led by teacher, Ms. Erin Brooks, this talented group of singers is an example of the many club opportunities the school is providing to students to further engage and inspire students to set high standards for themselves and one another.
