June 2019 -  Miles River and HWRHS had the pleasure of having Silva Misho, Certified Nutrition Specialist, intern with Nutrition Director Catherine Donovan this year.  Silva brought so much to the schools with taste tests to enhance the health of our lunch menus along with a middle school breakfast trial.  Students were offered various breakfast options.  Take a look at the data collected in this Breakfast a la Cart Presentation by Silva Misho.
