Lunch and Snacks

June 18, 2020 | Kate Streelman

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

If you pack juice boxes, please keep in mind that many children cannot finish the whole box—a junior size may be more appropriate.  

A closeable, reusable 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!

Also, please note that soda and bubble gum are not allowed at school.

Please note that the Moon classroom is entirely peanut-free and tree-nut-free due to some severe allergies in the class.

Moon class parents: Please do not send these foods to school with your child for lunch.

At this point, the Sun Class may have these ingredients in lunches. We will update you if this changes.

Lead Teacher, First Grade Moon Class

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.
