Spring Break is Next Week! Sharpen the Saw!

Habit 7 is the habit of taking care of your body by eating right, exercising, and getting the right amount of sleep. It’s the habit of spending time with family and friends; to learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. In a nutshell, habit 7 is about taking care of yourself.

School Year 2022-2023: Anticipated Return to Traditional School Lunch and Breakfast

The federal Omnibus Appropriations bill did not contain language or funding to extend pandemic child nutrition waivers for school meals programs. Current school lunch and school breakfast program waivers expire on June 30. As such, minus a congressional act, traditional rules and regulations for school lunch and breakfast will resume for school year 2022-2023.

Kroger Community Cares Program

This program makes fundraising easy by donating to HCCS based on the Kroger shopping you do. Once you link your Kroger Card to HCCS, all you have to do is shop at Kroger and swipe your Shopper’s Card. Here’s how it works:

1. Create a digital account.

A digital account is needed to participate in Kroger Community Rewards. If you already have a digital account, simply link your Shopper’s Card to your account so that all transactions apply toward the organization you choose.

2. Link your Card to HCCS.

Selecting the organization that you wish to support is as simple as updating the Kroger Community Rewards selection on your digital account.

1. Sign in to your digital account.

2. Search for HCCS, select it from the list and click “Save”.

HCCS will now display in the Kroger Community Rewards section of your account.

3. HCCS earns.

Any transactions moving forward using the Shopper’s Card number associated with your digital account will be applied to the program, at no added cost to you. Kroger donates annually to HCCS based on your percentage of spending as it relates to the total spending associated with all participating Kroger Community Rewards organizations.

CHIEF SUPERMARKET RECEIPTS COLLECTED.

HCCS receives funding for all Chief receipts collected during the school year. Please collect and tell your friends and family! You can send receipts in the M&M envelope.

Amazon.com

Over the past three years, HCCS has received over $800 from Amazon.com through the AmazonSmile rebate program. If you shop at Amazon.com and aren’t signed up to support HCCS, it’s easy and free. Thank you to the numerous people who are already participating in this fundraising program!    https://smile.amazon.com/ch/20-2797104
