We often focus on the teachers, and rightly so – but school lunch cafeteria employees are important part of your child’s school experience as well. School Lunch Superhero Day is taking place on Friday, May 3. Its purpose is to celebrate and thank all the hard-working school cafeteria employees in schools across the country and is the perfect opportunity to show your appreciation. The School Lunch Superhero Day website explains the initiative.
Download the free printable School Lunch Superhero Activity Guide for thank you cards (similar to valentines day cards) or create a comic for their favorite cafeteria employee.
