Today, we celebrate a very special day designated by the California Department of Education - School Lunch Hero Day! Let's give a big shout-out to our incredible school nutrition professionals who are essential in providing tasty and nutritious meals to our students every day. 🍎🥪 These heroes play a crucial role in fostering student success by ensuring that meals and snacks are available all year round, including the summer.

They also tend to have better attendance, academic performance and behavior. 📚✨ Our Child Nutrition Workers truly deserve to be called Heroes.

It is official! We learned on Friday, April 26, that Los Banos Unified School District will receive $20,187,500 over five years as part of more than $1.2 billion in total funding awarded to 288 school districts and charter schools in the third cohort of the Community Schools Implementation Grants set for approval on the agenda of the California State Board of Education on Wednesday, May 8. The California Community Schools Partnership Program (CCSPP) is the nation’s largest investment in the community schools model and is designed to transform educational outcomes for students through a whole child and whole family approach. This approach attempts to bring an array of services to the school site and the community in order to support students and improve the conditions for teaching and learning. In this model, schools function as neighborhood hubs that promote interaction among families, school administration, staff, and teachers to help families be more involved in the decisions about their child’s education. LBUSD worked collaboratively with parents, teachers, classified staff, and administrators to develop a common vision for implementing a whole-child approach to serving all students. The district will use these funds to invest in a Family Resource Center in the Los Banos community to provide services for families such as family therapy, substance abuse prevention workshops, educational workshops, job training, and more. The district will also hire social workers to work with students and their families as well as a community liaison at each school site to assist families in connecting with services inside and outside of the school system. CCSPP represents a massive opportunity to support our students, their families, and our community. We are excited that the California Department of Education awarded LBUSD the 8th highest implementation grant award in this cohort and look forward to continuing to transform the educational outcomes of our students. Dr. Sean Richey is commended for having the foresight to successfully pursue these resources for LBUSD and lead the competitive application process! Es oficial! Nos enteramos el viernes, 26 de abril, que el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Los Baños recibirá $20,187,500 durante cinco años como parte de más de $1.2 mil millones en fondos totales otorgados a 288 distritos escolares y escuelas chárter en la tercera cohorte de las Subvenciones para la Implementación de Escuelas Comunitarias programadas para su aprobación en la agenda de la Junta de Educación del Estado de California el miércoles. 8 de mayo. El Programa de Asociación de Escuelas Comunitarias de California (CCSPP,) es la inversión más grande del país en el modelo de escuelas comunitarias y está diseñado para transformar los resultados educativos de los estudiantes a través de un enfoque integral del niño y la familia completa. Este enfoque intenta llevar una serie de servicios a la escuela y a la comunidad con el fin de apoyar a los estudiantes y mejorar las condiciones para la enseñanza y el aprendizaje. En este modelo, las escuelas funcionan como centros vecinales que promueven la interacción entre las familias, la administración escolar, el personal y los maestros para ayudar a las familias a participar más en las decisiones sobre la educación de sus hijos. LBUSD trabajó en colaboración con padres, maestros, personal clasificado y administradores para desarrollar una visión común para implementar un enfoque integral del niño para servir a todos los estudiantes. El distrito utilizará estos fondos para invertir en un Centro de Recursos Familiares en la comunidad de Los Baños para brindar servicios a las familias, como terapia familiar, talleres de prevención del abuso de sustancias, talleres educativos, capacitación laboral y más. El distrito también contratará trabajadores sociales para trabajar con los estudiantes y sus familias, así como un enlace comunitario en cada escuela para ayudar a las familias a conectarse con los servicios dentro y fuera del sistema escolar. CCSPP representa una gran oportunidad para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes, sus familias y nuestra comunidad. Estamos entusiasmados de que el Departamento de Educación de California haya otorgado a LBUSD la octava subvención de implementación más alta en esta cohorte y esperamos continuar transformando los resultados educativos de nuestros estudiantes. ¡Se elogia al Dr. Sean Richey por tener la previsión de buscar con éxito estos recursos para LBUSD y liderar el proceso de solicitud competitivo!

🍎🥦 Recognizing National Nutrition Month 🥦🍎 This March, we recognize National Nutrition Month to highlight the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. At Los Banos Unified School District, we believe that good nutrition is the foundation of a bright, healthy future for our students. Why Nutrition Matters? 🤔 Nutrition is more than just eating a good meal; it's about feeding the future. Healthful eating habits provide students with the energy to learn and grow, both inside and outside the classroom. A balanced diet boosts immunity, supports physical development, enhances mental focus, and lays the groundwork for healthy lifestyle choices later in life. Our Commitment to Nutritious Meals 🍲 We are proud to offer our students nutritious meals that are both delicious and wholesome. Our menus are carefully designed to support a balanced diet. We strive to ensure that every meal contributes to our students’ health and well-being. Encouraging Healthful Eating Habits 🌱 Variety is Key: Encourage your child to try a wide range of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Each color provides different vitamins and minerals! Stay Hydrated: Water is essential for good health. Replace sugary drinks with water or milk. Healthy Snacks: Choose snacks that fuel the body and mind, such as nuts, yogurt, or sliced fruits. Family Meals: Sharing meals as a family can improve eating habits and provides a time for connecting. Be Active: Physical activity goes hand in hand with nutrition. Encourage your children to play outside, join a sports team, or engage in other physical activities they enjoy. Join Us in This Journey ✨ We invite our students, staff, and the entire Los Banos community to join us in celebrating National Nutrition Month by embracing and promoting healthful eating habits. Together, we can make a lasting impact on the health and well-being of our children. Let's nourish the body, mind, and spirit of our next generation, one healthy choice at a time! #HealthyEating #LosBanosPride #NutritionIsTheMission
