Northeast provides a healthy well-balanced lunch for children each day, be it from home or through the lunch program at school. For home lunches, parents send items that add nutritional value. The “My Plate” Food Guide is an example. No outside vendor food (fast food, pop, chips, etc.) may be sent or brought to school. This is a requirement for Northeast. Northeast Elementary Magnet School prohibits giving students food as a reward and withholding food as punishment.
Northeast Elementary has received the 2014 National Gold Award through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. This prestigious award has been earned due to the dedication of our staff and families partnered to reduce childhood obesity and foster healthy decision making to last a lifetime. Northeast was the first elementary school to receive this national award in 2011 and continues to be one of three elementary schools in the nation with this honor
