Dear Bristol Elementary School Families, Teachers, and Staff,

 After more than 25 years of dedication to children’s health and tasty cooking for kids, Lorraine Thompson will be retiring at the end of this school year.  During her tenure as Food Service Manager of the Bristol School, Lorraine has seen many changes in our understanding of nutrition and the role of school meals in maintaining student health and well being in school.  With each change and development, Lorraine has shown her enthusiasm to learn and grow as a professional and has demonstrated her care of students by working hard to improve school menus.

Lorraine’s work was rewarded when the Bristol School won the USDA’s Healthier US School Challenge Silver Award earlier this year.  This award represents many months of hard work to refine menus in order to ensure that they meet high nutritional standards.  Lorraine and her staff worked along with other school professionals to meet the challenge, highlighting and enhancing wellness activities in the Bristol Elementary School that support student’s ability to thrive and grow in school  

 On Friday May 31, Lorraine and her staff will receive their plaque and banner from the USDA for the Healthier US School Challenge Award which will be presented by a member of the VT Child Nutrition Office staff .  Please consider joining us for this short but important ceremony to honor staff efforts to make Bristol Elementary School a healthy place for kids to learn and grow.

 As we say farewell to Lorraine and wish her well we begin the search for someone to serve as Food Service Manager in the BES kitchen. The ANESU Food Service Cooperative is committed to making sure that this individual will continue to bring students more and more delicious, healthy meals to support their learning and growth each day.  We will look for an individual who is also committed to bringing local and fresh food into the kitchen, exposing students to a wide variety of tasty foods, and continuing efforts towards increased wellness for the entire school community.  Along with Bertha and Patty our entire Cooperative Food Service team will work hard to make the transition as seamless as possible. 

 Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have comments or ideas to share about this change and opportunity and once again we hope you will join us on Friday May 31st to celebrate healthy meals and wellness in our school, honor Lorraine Thompson for her service and skill, and bid her a fond farewell.
