What a wonderful way to give service to the community by filling over 4000 bags of cereal at the Food Bank for the Buddy Pack system. Students did a great job following protocol requirements to stay clean while bagging food, being productive in an assembly line fashion to get as many bags filled as possible, and experiencing what it was like to stand and work for almost two hours. We made it fun with a math question:
You must bag 40 bags per box and 25 boxes make up one skid, we have created 2 skids of bagged cereal, how many bags have we filled for the Food Bank? I had students coming up to me with possible answers. What a great way to learn how math is important in a work place!
Students were pretty tired by 10:30 working at their best and they were ready to take off their hair nets and go eat lunch. We had a relaxing time at Parkade Plaza eating our packed lunches and raiding the vending machines.
After lunch we headed to the Anthropology museum at the old Cancer Hospital and we were split into three groups for the Docents to take us on tour. Students viewed painting, sculptures, arrow heads, spears and learned about cultures and history form our past. Students were respectful and responsible and represented Boonville School District well. I am very proud of them!
Thank you so much to the parents who were able to step out of the normal day to help chaperone! You helped make our day go smooth and safe!
Please see photos on Class Dojo that I took throughout the day. Some of the photos will be posted on the school website soon.
Have a wonderful weekend!
