At Rosedale Elementary, we have celebrated National School Lunch Week for the past two years and have had a great time doing it. We wanted to share with you what we did to make it a special week at our school.

This year and last, we cut out characters from one of our magazines and had them blown up to about 16 inches, and then one of the guys from our maintenance department cut them out of plywood and our art teacher, John Scott, painted them for us. We also had a large wooden ballot box made for the voters to drop their ballots in.

We then decorated the cafeteria with all the election banners and flags and hung the character above the serving window. We also made posters and had the kids to color them and hung them down the halls of the school.

Each day, the character we were serving was pointed out at lunch time, and on Thursday, I decided that we needed a visit from Pete Pizza, so I dressed up and made an appearance at lunch time while serving and made a pitch for the children to vote for me.

Voting then took place on Monday and our winner was Pete Pizza with 138 votes. The lunch count that week was 200 or a little less or little more every day. Our enrollment in only 228. We were really pleased with results of National School Lunch Week.
