School Lunch Superhero Day!

On Friday, May 3rd, we celebrated our first-ever School Lunch Superhero Day!
As you can see, our school principal and lunch ladies enjoyed an extra-special lunch in the library.
Jarett Krosoczka, author of the Lunch Lady graphic novels, decided to implement this special day for our school lunch superheroes!  He even started a Pinterest board and has a website dedicated to sharing ideas and materials for this special event.

Our kiddos learned about the Lunch Lady comics in the library and wrote letters to the ladies who work in our cafeteria.

We even played the Lunch Lady Legends video game by Random House for Kids.

I interviewed our lunch ladies and shared the interviews with the kids.  It was a nice way for the kids to learn more about the ladies who serve them every day in the cafeteria.  Many students mentioned things they learned from the video interviews in their letters.

For the meal, we made special place cards for each of the ladies.
Our student council wore vests and served each of our school lunch superheroes.
The ladies really enjoyed their special day and we will definitely do it again next year!

Be sure to purchase the new Lunch Lady and the Video Game Villain book for your library!
