Chef Getzin and the Fayetteville High School Child Nutrition staff are hard at work today preparing meals for students and staff! Chef Getzin is here working with the Child Nutrition Department, thanks to a generous grant funded and supported by the Lifetime Foundation.

FPS Child Nutrition staff enjoyed hands-on professional development with chef Kent Getzin. Chef Getzin joins us from Chelan, Washington, thanks to a generous grant funded and supported by the Lifetime Foundation. The Child Nutrition staff was instructed to create original recipes after learning about the fundamentals of taste physiology and flavor development. Food was then prepared by staff using the new recipes, and staff members all sampled the food in a taste test. Recipes approved by the staff will be used throughout the district in our lunch program!
Friday, September 23 will be an Online Learning Day for our staff members. Students will not attend school on Friday.

Dear Leverett Families, I wanted to let you know that I announced my retirement last week to the faculty and staff at Leverett. My last day will be June 15th. It has been my sincere pleasure to have served as the Principal of Leverett Elementary for the past five years and Fayetteville schools for the past 27 years! I am so very grateful to have had the opportunity to have worked alongside you, the parents, guardians, and community leaders, impacting future generations! Together we have faced great challenges and together we have done great things! I have truly been blessed to be a part of your child’s education. I take with me such sweet memories of student successes and family nights! Our family nights were some of the most fun and amazing events that I will cherish forever! Leverett has always been a special place with a long-standing tradition of being the BEST IT CAN BE-E! I plan to spend more time with my family, particularly my grandchildren and my parents! I look forward to hearing all the wonderful news coming from Leverett in the future! With love, appreciation, and gratitude, Chris Sputo
