kids in a lunchroom

4th Grade lunch helpers

Over 35 4th grade students have volunteered to help kindergarten students during the kindergarten lunch period. 4th graders will help kindergarteners get their lunches, open packages, making sure everyone has napkins and utensils, collect trash and assist with lining up at the end of the lunch. To participate, 4th graders have agreed to give up one recess period a week to support kindergarten. Our kindergarteners love to get to know the older students and our 4th graders set a wonderful example of how to maintain SOAR behaviors in the lunchroom. Thank you to all of the 4th graders who have offered to help.
