Today we celebrate the Unsung Heroes of Caribou High School! Between preparing healthy meals for our students, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, our Viking School Nutrition Professionals are true heroes. Carla Godin, Linda Martin, and Nikki Saucier are essential members of our team here at CHS and each give countless hours towards caring for our students and staff. Their contribution goes far beyond working in the kitchen, as they contribute so much more than just “food service”. They provide a safe space, a meal to students in need, an ear to listen, a familiar face with a smile, host student events, volunteer at many student- led projects, attend extra-curricular events to be a cheerleader to all who need it. We are so blessed to have the individuals as our colleagues and members of our team. Today, May 6, 2022, we celebrate School Lunch Hero Day by showcasing our amazing school nutrition professionals! Thank you for your all that you do for the staff and students of Caribou High School. Ladies, this day is for you! Please help us celebrate and thank these outstanding professionals! #vikingpride #vikingstrong
