Trades people and custodial staff from 17 area school districts attended, and workshops were provided by industry and maintenance professionals.

    The new Director of Nutrition Services for the District, Mr. LJ Klinkenberg, was interviewed by the National School Nutrition Association three months ago, and the article was just included in the current issue of their magazine on page 151.  Mr. Klinkenberg has been working for the past three years as a consultant with the nutritional services program through Empire Health Foundation.  In this capacity, he was instrumental in the development of the District’s “back-to-scratch” program.  His efforts supported the training of District Nutrition Services staff in order to promote healthy food choices and bring awareness to childhood obesity.  Check this article out, and get some idea of why we are so excited to have him in our District!
