The Middle Schoolers had a great event on Thursday. Twelve student volunteers, anonymously made lunch baskets to be bid on my their fellow classmates. The winning bid got to share the lunch with the lunch maker. The basket buddies idea came from an experience read about by some middle school students in their Language Arts class. The goal of the event was to find new and fun ways for kids get to know someone they would not ordinarily spent time with. Lunch Baskets contained things ranging from steak and potatoes to deli sandwiches with soda pop or sparkling cider and fresh homemade cookies to fruit leather.
The students seemed to be reluctant to participate but... after the assembly and lunch were over, students were talking about next time!!!
The event was planned by the Middle School Student Council under the direction of Mrs. Sant.
