Tuesday November 8, 2022 is Election Day. Mason County Schools will be closed for staff and students.
Mason County Schools finished National School Lunch Week with a Scratch Cook Training made possible through a grant provided by the WVDE. Cooks prepared many new recipes for lunch such as Chicken Bacon Ranch Subs, Chocolate Caramel Moo Brew, The Hulk Smoothie, Sweet Chili Chicken Wraps, and Chicken Lo Mein with Vegetables, just to name a few. We would like to thank our cooks for the passion and hard work they put forth every day to provide sound nutrition to our children. Fun Food Fact: Did you know kid’s favorites are now offered in healthier versions? Pizza is served on whole-grain crust with low-fat cheese and reduced sodium tomato sauce! The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 enabled major improvements to school meals, bringing school meals in line with the latest nutrition science. By offering students familiar foods that are whole grain-rich, low in sodium and low in saturated fat, the school cafeteria is balancing nutrition and consumer demand.
Mason County Schools attended an event at Marshall University for Nucor families. Dr. Burdette, Dr. Bond, and principals from Ashton, Beale, and Hannan met families from all over the United States looking to make WV home. What a great opportunity for Mason County #MasonProud
Today schools that qualified for the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program received locally sourced pumpkins. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted program providing free fresh fruits and vegetables to children at eligible elementary schools. The goal of the FFVP is to introduce children to fresh fruits and vegetables, to include new and different varieties, and to increase overall acceptance and consumption of fresh, unprocessed produce among children. The FFVP also encourages healthier school environments by promoting nutrition education. Students at these schools were provided with an educational handout and will learn how to roast their own pumpkin seeds! Let's thank our local farmers, Mr. Wallbrown and Mr. Foglesong, for making this possible and to celebrate National Farm to School Month. #farmtoschool National School Lunch Week, Day 3, Fun Food Fact: Pumpkin and squash seeds provide 33 grams of protein per 100 gram serving. #nslw22

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) serves nearly 30 million children every school day. President John F. Kennedy created National School Lunch Week (NSLW) in 1962 to promote the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom. #NSLW22 will be celebrated October 10-14, 2022 Check out the Fruity Flatbread offered to Mason County Student's for Breakfast! Fun Food Fact: Strawberries are the only fruit to wear their seeds on the outside. Did you know that the average berry has about 200 seeds?
