Students from the Food Rescue club celebrated with an end of the year pizza party. They rescued food each day from the cafeteria that was not eaten by students.  The food was then counted and packaged to be donated to local food shelters.  Thanks to all the students for their efforts and hard work!!!

Our Cardinal family is a very generous family.  Each month our students brought in donations for various charities in exchange for the opportunity to wear jeans the first Friday of the month.  We watched the summer Olympics in Rio and keeping with the Olympic spirit our first jeans day went to support our own Olympians at the RISE Learning Center.  Many in our Cardinal family have been touched by cancer and in September, October and February we were found giving to honor or in memory of someone we knew who has been touched by cancer.  November, December and March found us helping families within our community. We danced our socks off to help kids at Riley and found that many of students have been Riley kids themselves.  Our last jeans day allowed us to purchase a mattress for the Son Foundation, which provides lodging for out of town families who have a loved one receiving care at one of our outstanding area hospitals.  Thanks to all of our families who donated this year.  It only takes a small gesture of kindness to make a huge difference in someone’s life.

Lettuce Shortage

Apr 262017

Due to the lack of lettuce at this time, we will discontinue offering the lettuce-based entree salads as a lunch choice at all levels until further notice.   We will still be able to offer Yogurt parfaits & the Cheese & Fruit plate.  The shortage is due to the wet winter weather in California.
