FAQ’s for Parents


With current national attention being focused on children’s health and wellness issues, Mandan Public School District’s Child Nutrition Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site called MySchoolBucks.com. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends.


Also, parents will have the ability to print out a copy of their child’s eating history report. This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and or lunch within the past thirty days.


To access these services:

Click on the MySchoolBucks.com link above. From this site you will create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account. All you need is your child’s name, student ID number ( if your child does not know this number you can find their student ID # in your Power School Parent Portal) and school ZIP code. The instructions listed will guide you through the easy online account set up process.


Things to know:

> If you have more than one child in the District you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account.

> Payments can be made with a major credit or debit card.

> The convenience fee of $1.95 will be paid by the Mandan School District. Mandan Public School District will not profit from the use of this site.


We are very excited to offer these new services. However, if you choose not to take advantage of the online prepayment service you may continue to make advance payments via cash or check, which should be made payable to the Mandan Public School District. Please write your child’s full name on the check.


If you have any questions about these new services, please feel free to contact Becky Heinert at 751-6500.

Mandan Counseling Program Mission Statement

What does an elementary school counselor do?

Counselors provide a variety of services to students and schools. Large group guidance lessons are provided in the classroom regularly. Topics include friendship skills, bullying, handling conflict, anger management, stress management, goal-setting, academic success, and career education.

We also provide short-term individual counseling to students. Occasionally our students need assistance with certain developmental challenges. We might see students if they are experiencing trouble making friends, grief or loss of a loved one, a divorce or separation in the family, moving, or a variety of other issues.

Depending on the school and the need, small group counseling sessions may be available to provide students with help and support with peers. Group topics might include friendship skills, anger management, changing families, study skills, or self-esteem.

Counselors are available for consultation with parents and teachers regarding a student’s social, emotional, academic or behavioral concerns. We are also happy to refer to community agencies and services for extra help and support.

Please contact your school counselor with specific questions about services offered or with any concerns about your child.
