Why Lunch Ladies are Heroes

First of all, huge thank you to Patti (our Media Specialist), Angie (our Art teacher), and Peggy (our manager in the Cafetorium) for putting this together!  It's an honor to work with individuals where minds begin racing, an idea can come together, and the constant focus is on the support we can offer to our students!

Not to get too nerdy, but remember when we were in undergrad and studied Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs?  Well, Jarrett Krosoczka touched upon this when he said "A child can't learn until their belly is full."

At our school, we went ahead and began celebrating our Food Service staff before School Lunch Hero Day (

Not only did we want to celebrate the hard work this team displays daily, but we also are always looking for ways to create a community of readers.

We have our bulletin boards up in the Cafetorium!

Additionally, we used the pictures below to tape inside the covers of our Lunch Lady Graphic Novels.  Now, we will continue to celebrate this wonderful team and the work they do to prepare our students for learning!!

If you are interested in reading any of the Lunch Lady Graphic Novels, please visit our Media Center....but you'll have to add your name to the waiting list!
