Several new and enticing food and drink extras have debuted in the TCDS Kitchen this year. Here’s a look at the yummy treats available to students, parents, families and staff.

Smoothie Wednesdays

If you’re looking for a nutritious breakfast on the go, delicious smoothies are now available every Wednesday morning for any student, staff, parent or visitor on campus. Stop by the TCDS Kitchen to buy your fruit-filled, frozen drink anytime between 7:30am and 8:30am. Smoothies are $1.50 each. Punch cards are available to allow for quick and easy purchases.

Popcorn Fridays

Anyone looking for an end-of-the-week treat can pick up a bag of popcorn during any of our student lunch times every Friday. For 50-cents a bag, this is a great and tasty way to usher in the start of the weekend.

Daily Coffee Bar 

Calling all parents, staff and adults on campus! We’ve got a great way to save money and time. Gourmet hot and iced coffees are now being served in the TCDS Kitchen every morning from 7:30am to 9:00am. Hot coffee is $1.00, and iced coffee is $1.50. Punch cards are available to allow for easy purchases.

 Coming Soon: Morning Hot Cocoa

Once the mornings really begin to cool down, hot cocoa in the morning will wake – and warm – you up!

We ask that all of the above items be purchased using cash only please.


Soon to Debut: “Let’s Go Retro”  Fridays

TCDS Food Service Co-Directors Ms. Vanessa and Ms. Stacey want to welcome all families to our school’s kitchen, and what better way to do that than to have a blast from the past!

Coming in November, the TCDS Food Service team is offering “Let’s Go Retro”  Fridays on the lunch menu.  Several parents have told Ms. Vanessa and Ms. Stacey about fond memories they have of their old school lunches when they were children.

Spurred by parents’ enthusiasm, our Food Service team decided to go “back in the day” and bring to our school a favorite of many TCDS parents. That tasty dish – mashed potatoes with turkey gravy!

Ms. Vanessa and Ms. Stacey will update the dish a bit by adding real turkey to the gravy, allowing for more protein and nourishment in the meal.

This mouth-watering meal, while served to our students, will also be available to all who are interested in reliving their childhood school lunch days.

Every Friday beginning in November, parents, grandparents, family members and friends are invited to join our students for this delicious lunch. Guest lunches will cost $4.50 a meal. Orders must be received by noon on the Thursday before guests plan to attend lunch.

We hope this will give our TCDS families a memorable way to spend a special lunch with their students while also reminiscing about their own school lunch days.
