Cafeteria Staff Named UCPS Team of the Year

Pictured from left: Lana Campbell, Janice Steiner, Cafeteria Manager, and Becky Tarlton

The cafeteria staff of New Salem Elementary was recently recognized as the UCPS Child Nutrition Team of the Year for 2010-2011. These three ladies work tirelessly to prepare breakfast and lunch for over 300 students each day. They were recognized for their outstanding teamwork which was exemplified last year as they faced opening the school year without access to the new cafeteria.

They prepared meals at Fairview Elementary and transported them to New Salem each day. In addition, with new equipment comes training and often things that don't work as they should. They always find a way to have our lunch ready on time.

They also had to prepare lunch on the day when we had no power. Their teamwork shines every day! In August, our team received a sanitation score of 101.5. Amazing!!

We encourage you to allow your child the opportunity to eat a delicious, healthy, hot lunch each day of school prepared by the caring hand of our outstanding cafeteria staff! Lunch menus are posted each month on the UCPS website and can be found by visiting the Parents and Community Quick lin on the left menu of our website.

Congratulations Janice Steiner (Manager), Lana Campbell, and Becky Tarlton on achieving this outstanding recognition!
