school lunch trayDuring the Plymouth School Board meeting Monday, the board heard a report from Judi Lykowski who splits her time between teaching broadcasting classes and as the corporation Marketing Director.

Lykowski showed figures showing the demographics of followers on the school’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram,  Pinterest, and Linkedin social media accounts. Students are involved in much of the marketing efforts for the schools within the Plymouth Corporation.

Additionally, Lykowski showed several slides in her presentation outlining how various media articles are submitted and published along with publications that are used in direct mailings.

Gloria Burnham, Director of Food Services for the Plymouth Community School Corporation informed the board of a price increase for school meals for the 2017-2018 school year. Lunch prices for grades K-6 will increase by ten cents to $1.95. Prices for grades 7-12 will also go up by ten cents to $2.05. Breakfast costs also reflect the ten cents increase and will be $1.20.

Superintendent, Daniel Tyree, said, “The increases are the government saying we have to raise to that price.” Both Tyree and the board members praised Burnham for her many years of outstanding service.
