Happy tummies make for happy learners, and good nutrition is essential for growing bodies and minds.

Our Lunch Philosophy

The Montessori philosophy of learning and applying practical life skills promotes appropriate independence at an early age. Until Monticello is able to provide the federal free or reduced price meal program, we encourage students to work with their families to plan ahead and pack nutritionally sound lunches from home. 

Keeping your body properly fueled is important to the learning process. Be sure to include a variety of foods from all the USDA recommended food groups and limit sweets and artificial additives.

Hot Lunch

We are happy to announce that we will be offering hot lunch options again for the 2023-2024 school year!

This year, we will have Lucy’s pizza on Monday/Wednesday, and Chick-fil-a on Tuesday/Thursday.

Please remember this is not a free service. If you would like your student to participate, please have orders, along with payment turned into the office no later than 12 pm, Thursday of the week prior as orders are turned in one week in advance.
