Hello, parents, grandparents, alumni and anyone who is interested in bringing snacks and treats for our wonderful faculty and staff! The Parent Association would like your help in showing appreciation to these hard-working people by providing snacks and or treats for around 100 people.
Please sign up for any given week in the sign up below. You can do this as an individual family or with several families together. It's up to you.
Please contact Kristen Hallenbeck at [email protected] and let her know that you have selected a week (day) to bring snacks and treats. She can help you with setup if it is needed and you can let her know if you require any items such as plates, napkins, or utensils, and she will have those available the morning you drop everything off. Sandia Prep is a member of the Green Schools Alliance and therefore asks that all disposable products be compostable. To meet this initiative, the school provides these items for you to use such as plates, napkins, utensils, hot and cold drink cups available. You may also bring items to help with serving your snacks. Please be sure to label those items so you can get them back at the end of the day. You may also contact Ann Dee Gonzales at [email protected] directly and let her what compostable items you will need and what day they will be needed. She will also send out an email to all the faculty and staff letting them know goodies will be waiting for them in the faculty lounge. So please just let one of us know if anything is needed and we will have it ready for you.
Please deliver food by approximately 7:30 a.m.(morning is preferable) but can be anytime before 10:30 am. Days preferred are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday during the week you signed up. We try to avoid Fridays and the day before a holiday because leftovers often go to waste since they cannot be placed out the next day. However, you may choose a Friday and then take the leftovers home with you.
Food is placed on tables (table clothes and centerpieces are optional) in the faculty lounge (behind the office and next to the commons). You can make signs or labels to let everyone know what snacks and treats are there for the day.
You may park in the fire lane temporarily in the front parking lot to make unloading and loading easier for you.
The snacks or treats you bring can be elaborate or simple - your choice.
Examples: Cheese/cracker platter, fruit platter, veggie platter, quiche, any baked goods, burritos, Kolaches, trail mix, granola, yogurt parfaits, hummus with pita, bagels with cream cheese and/or other spreads, popcorn, sandwiches...homemade or store bought..you choose! There is a lot of information out there online to give you ideas on what you can bring (think Pinterest!).
Food should be portable for teachers and staff to grab and go on a plate or napkin.
You may pick up your platters, boxes, utensils, etc. in the lounge at the end of the day or the next day. Any leftovers, which are rare, can be taken home OR put in the fridge with a note stating "for the next day."
A nice touch is to place a note thanking the teachers and staff signed by the family(s) providing the snacks. Everyone just LOVES it when snacks are in the faculty lounge just for them. If you have any questions or need help the day you bring something in please contact Kristen. She is always glad to help.
