Hello Wildflower Community- We’d like to communicate a few exciting developments in the works at Wildflower! We are pleased to announce that we are in the process of developing a school lunch program for the upcoming school year. Our goal is to provide a high quality and locally sourced meal program for our Wildflower kids and community. We are working with a consultant to guide us through the process. We are also working on a design for the new kitchen space. Beginning next school year, we will have a new home for our middle school program. We recently signed a lease for a building space in the North View Shopping Center. The 4000 square foot space is located directly north of the Wildflower campus in what was formally Holiday Pools. Currently, we are in the process of preparing our application for a use permit. The new lease also provides Wildflower with access to the gate that leads into the North Valley Shopping Center. This will allow us to improve our drop off and pick up traffic pattern, and greatly reduce the congestion at these times. Both of these opportunities presented themselves after the school year began and we still have much work to do to see them through to completion. A more detailed overview of the meal program, kitchen space and new middle school classroom with be presented at the spring Town Hall Meeting, scheduled for Wed. April 24. We hope to see you at the Town Hall!
