Snack and Lunch

June 21, 2020 | Shanna Pargellis

Snack and Lunch

Healthy foods and drinks make a big difference in your child’s energy level and ability to learn. Some great snacks are: fruit, raw veggies, cheese and crackers, and yogurt. Water is also recommended. Soda, gum, candy and any glass bottles are not allowed at school. A reusable and refillable water bottle is a great idea for the school year.

As part of the morning routine, your child will unpack his or her snack and put it in a crate. It is helpful to have the snack is a small separate container or bag. Dessert items may not be eaten during snack time. Finally, please pack necessary utensils with your child’s lunch/snack, as we will not always have them available.

Lower School Director

A life-long learner, Shanna Pargellis is always full of questions and curious about possibilities. As a founder of the school she has been delighted to shape and experience this dynamic and growing learning environment. A continuing goal over the 40 years is to know and care for each child so that each one grows not just academically but in the arts, faith, and service. She believes that listening to the child and learning holistically prepares one to lead a life of meaning and purpose and joy.

Currently she is the Lower School Director for grades one to three, but she has had many roles at the school: teacher, board member, parent, acting head, early childhood director, guitar player, song leader, space designer, furniture mover, and celebration planner.

While she has appreciated all the places one can explore in the city, she enjoys gardening in her own small backyard and spending time in green spaces. She also loves to ask the beautiful question.
