Home-packed lunch students invited to enjoy Harvest Bars

DOUGLAS COUNTY – DCSD elementary and middle school students who prefer home-packed lunches are invited to enjoy a side salad trip through our celebrated Harvest Bars featuring fresh salad, fruits, veggies and White Farms Natural (no sugar added) Applesauce.

"The Harvest Bar side salad offering is ideal for parents who want to ensure their children are truly eating produce. Students will love joining their school friends at the salad bars to select their own fresh, crisp and nutrient packed produce. My kids are looking forward to this option for days they choose a packed lunch," said DCSD Dietitian Kasja Larson.

"This option is a no-brainer for busy parents. Harvest Bar Ala Carte for 75¢ ... nothing could be easier, especially if you're a parent looking to make produce consumption a priority for your child/ren," said Larson.

The Apple Awards honors and celebrates excellence in education. This year, more than 5,000 nominations were submitted. 188 Apple Representatives from schools and departments were then selected by the Foundation in January. Of this outstanding group of education leaders, five individuals were awarded with an Apple Award. 

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.
