News from the Kitchen

Supply chain update 

As school foodservice programs return to normal service and menus, schools are facing unprecedented issues with the supply chain that will cause us to alter our posted menus with little to no notice. We are working closely with our distributors and manufactures to secure both the food and supply items needed to support our programs. While it is our intention to serve the posted menu each day at school, supply issues will not make this possible throughout the school year until supply chain issues are rectified. We will always attempt to substitute the scheduled menu item with another that is as similar as possible to the extent we are able to do so.


This would also be a good time to have a conversation with your child(ren) encouraging them to make smart decisions on the line and take only what they will eat to help reduce food waste.  Daily we see unopened or untouched food being thrown into the garbage. It is hard to watch knowing that we may not be able to bring in that product again in the future due to supply issues.

Scrip Certificates are the Perfect Gift!

Do your Christmas shopping with gift cards that give back. It’s simple. Purchase gift cards from Scrip at face value, the brand gives back (no extra money comes out of your pocket), SMSA earns funds to offset the operating costs of the system and you earn credit to your SMSA tuition or any other tuition based school!

Scrip Christmas Cash

Every time you purchase $500 worth of Scrip, you earn $10 Christmas Cash to be used on a future order AND you are entered into a drawing to win a $100 Scrip Certificate. There’s no better time to purchase Scrip.

Upcoming Dates

SMSA Staff Christmas - Donations Due December 20th

For over ten years, several SMSA families have sponsored a Christmas Gathering at Whispering Springs for SMSA teachers, administrators, and staff as a way to show their gratitude. For many families, the contribution to the special evening is given in place of individual Christmas gifts, or as an added appreciation.


This year, with the help of your generous donations, SMSA teachers, administrators, and staff will again enjoy an evening of food, beverages, and fantastic camaraderie.  Please note, this opportunity is optional. We ask each family interested in participating for a minimum donation of $50.


Monetary donations for the gathering will be accepted through Monday, December 20th. Please mail your contribution to Valerie Everson, W4204 Jennie Lee Court, Malone, WI 53049. Checks may be made payable to Valerie Everson, or if you are interested in paying through Venmo, please send to @Bill-Everson-78.

Please address questions to Valerie Everson at, or to Andrea Nuss at


Blessings to you during this holiday season!
