Week of August 21st – August 25th

On Wednesday we will be having our Harvest Open House from 5:30-7:00 pm where you can visit your classroom (drop off supplies prior to the first day of school) and meet Harvest staff members.  With so many families visiting Harvest, parking tends to fill up quickly.  The Saline High School parking lot is another great option to park.  A crosswalk and sidewalk allow you to safely cross and get to our school.  If you arrive before 5:30 pm, feel free to play on our playground.  At 5:30 pm we will open all three sets of doors (main doors, Kindergarten/2nd grade, and 1st grade/3rd grade) where you can enter Harvest.  Make sure to stop by the cafeteria to check out the PTA table selling Harvest gear and learn more about various community organizations.  The Harvest office will also be open where you can meet our building secretary and drop off medication.

Throughout this week I will be sending some specific updates related to arrival/dismissal to help ensure next week is safe for everyone.  Feel free to take a look at this arrival/dismissal slideshow to learn more about how we all work together to ensure our Harvest Hornets safely get in and out of our building.

  • Make sure to stop by the cafeteria and meet PTA board members during Open House!
  • Help make this first week a success with arrival!  You will support students getting off the bus and getting into their correct teacher lines.  We will need support from 8:30-8:50 each day during the first week (and on Tuesday of the second week)!  Sign up HERE.

For the upcoming 2023-24 school year, the State of Michigan has authorized free meals for all students as part of the Michigan School Meals program! This means students 4 years old and above attending public schools will have the opportunity to enjoy breakfast and lunch at no cost throughout the academic year. Please note: Only full breakfast/lunch meal choices are included as part of the free school meal program. A la carte menu choices including milk, snacks, etc. are charged separately.

Families should still complete the 23-24 School Meals EBT application, which helps ensure ongoing state funding and can qualify our school or community for other special programs and provides reduced rates for programs like athletics and community education. Parents or guardians can submit confidential applications online.

Families may still choose to fund their students’ accounts using the Meal Magic Portal, in order to cover the cost of ala carte choices and snacks outside of breakfast and lunch. Parents are invited to view the Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.

Michigan School Meals offer a great opportunity for everyone to eat together in the cafeteria and hopefully make it easier for students and families to confidently check breakfast and lunch off their list. We’re excited to serve even more students in the Saline community this year, helping to fuel busy days with favorite menu items and a variety of delicious new recipes!
