St. Mary’s shall promote student well-being and academic achievement by supporting quality nutrition and physical activity as part of the learning environment. Our Kitchen staff at SMCS prepares school lunches with great pride and enjoyment. We believe that SMCS plays an important role in shaping lifelong healthy eating habits by offering nutritious meals that follow the USDA federal child nutrition guidelines.
We offer hot lunch on full school days. Students going to after-care on half days will need to bring a cold lunch.

St. Mary’s Wellness Council will set goals, monitor, and review the policy and guidelines, and ensure that we are following all Federal, State, and Local Regulations pertaining to the Wellness Policy. The Food Service Director and PE Teacher will co-chair this committee. This committee may also include teachers, students, and potential stakeholders.
The Council will then report to the principal its recommendations for improvements and goals for the school year.
