Today I had a very enjoyable lunch with three first graders in the courtyard. As we talked, the children suggested how great it would be to eat out in the courtyard when the weather is nice. They were shocked when I quickly agreed and said we should give it a try.
During the month of May, providing the weather is cooperative, students will be eating in the courtyard. This is a new idea and will work best on Fridays. Remember, this is pizza day and it is easier to eat pizza as a picnic lunch. There are very few tables in the courtyard so I would encourage children to bring a towel to sit on. If any child does not wish to join us for this experience, please send a note to school and we will keep them in the cafeteria, but my three first grade friends thought kids would like it.
