NSJ is proud to announce that we are one of the 7 MPS schools awarded a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The grant is administered by the Minnesota Department of Education and coordinated by Culinary & Nutrition Services.  Beginning April 19, 2012 a fresh fruit or vegetable snack will be provided each school day for all students in our school. Snacks will be eaten in the classroom and children will be encouraged to try the fruit or vegetable. Children may opt to not participate if they do not like or cannot eat the fruit or vegetable snack that day. If you have any questions about this program, please contact the principal or the cafeteria supervisor.
