This year we had decided to give back to those that work so hard for us with little appreciation. People like the custodians, lunch workers, office workers, school nurse and so many more help our school run smoothly and safely! We honored and showed our appreciation for their hard work by preparing a feast for them to take a break and relax a bit! It was hard work for the kids, but successful in many ways! The kids designed invitations, helped decide who to invite, prepared and cooked the food, decorated the classroom and made cards!
Here are some pictures of our many preparations! Thank you for all the great food donations! Our soup turned out great and smelled great cooking in the classroom! 🙂 All the kids got an opportunity to wash the vegetables, peel vegetables, cut some vegetables and measure some of the items to put into the soup. It was a team effort! Other classrooms prepared sweet potatos, squash casserole, corn bread and apple pie!
While our special guests were coming to each classroom to get their food, the kids also made cards for the nighttime custodians who work after we all leave, but are a big part of our school!
All the people truly did feel appreciated and the kids felt good giving back! 🙂
