Lunch and Snacks

June 18, 2020 | Kate Streelman

Each day, students will need to bring a nutritious lunch and snack.  Sandwiches, chunks of fruit, cheese and crackers, and raw vegetables are great lunch and snack ingredients. Need other ideas? Ask us or ask your fellow parents!

Your child must bring a closeable, reusable water bottle, as drinking fountains are closed at this time. A full water bottle is a great way to provide a non-sugary beverage, keep your child hydrated, and reduce the amount of trash we produce.  Reusable lunch containers also help the environment!

Please note that soda and bubble gum are not allowed at school.

Allergies: We are still collecting information about allergies and will update this post to inform you about any food restrictions.

Kate Streelman

Lead Teacher, Fourth Grade

Kate Streelman is passionate about teaching. In second grade, she decided that when she grew up, she would be a teacher and she has written proof of this goal! She is a graduate of Eastern Christian Schools and Calvin College. Ms. Streelman grew up in suburban New Jersey and has greatly enjoyed moving closer to New York City. Prior to teaching at Mustard Seed, she taught in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Kate joined the staff as a first grade teacher in 2017. Every year brings new experiences, excitement, and challenges, and Ms. Streelman looks forward to them all. A shy student growing up, Ms Streelman loves the community of Mustard Seed and how easy it is to be a part of it. She also likes to find ways to help all students feel like they are a part of that community.

Outside of school, Ms Streelman loves to read, doodle and paint, and spend time with friends and family. She enjoys exploring the area, finding new places to eat and relax, and just going for walks.
