We love our Fun Fridays in the Oakhill lunchroom but have found that parents don’t always know what it is! Those who have been a part of the Oakhill community know that our “Fun Fridays” has evolved over the years from sampling new fruits and vegetables, to what it is today, a day explore new foods and have old favorites again! On a typical lunch day, a Kindergarten through Third-grade student would go to the serving window to receive their tray of food. This tray would consist of an entree, three sides, and milk or water to drink.
On Friday, instead of serving through the window, we set up a lunch buffet with hot entree selections and a full salad bar. This gives students an opportunity to walk through the serving line and make choices for themselves. Our salad bar is loaded with lettuces, proteins, veggies, fruits, and cheeses. In addition to that our buffet has hot soup, multiple hot entrees, and sides. Included with the students' meal is the option for milk, chocolate milk, juice, or water. Maybe the most exciting part of Friday is our homemade dessert. Whether it be brownies, banana bread, cookies, or cinnamon rolls, the kids are always excited for the treat at the end of their meal!
Our toddler through prekindergarten students receive the same delicious Fun Friday food options but their meal is still plated and brought to their table.
Please join us for lunch on a Fun Friday with your student so that you can see for yourself how awesome this day can be!
