National School Lunch Week: Thank You, Food Services
To close our celebration of National School Lunch week, we're highlighting the amazing work that happens at Issaquah High School!
This fearless team is led by Nel Santor, who focuses on refining how Issaquah High School lunches operate, as she and the lunch team are always looking for ways they can improve. She says she believes that lunch is vital to student success within the classroom, and she is proud that her team helps create an efficient environment where students are supported.
And efficient the team is! As they are consistently serving more than 550 meals every day, they take pride in the work that they do.
Santor says she appreciates the wonderful team of people she works with, and their commitment to the students. Some of the members include Hye Young Kim, Becky Hansen, Alice Yang and Jie Chen. When asked about her staff, she mentions their consistent hard work in all they roles they step into, and says,
“Our floaters do an amazing job also. They cover work for the whole school and are capable to work as a manager, assistant, and baker for (our) Food Service team.”
When visiting this team, it is evident they are extremely dedicated to ensuring they provide excellent service for the students. As students check out, listening in on their conversations makes it clear that the team takes genuine care in students’ well-being, as the members are intentional about building trusting relationships. They talk with the students about how they are doing and feeling in class, athletics and other interests – all while efficiently operating the lunchroom.
We are incredibly grateful for Santor, her team, and all the work they do every day for the students at Issaquah High School. Join us in thanking them and the Food Services teams throughout the district during National School Lunch Week!
