PTSA has a tradition of serving a free back to school lunch each year to the student body. It is a fun way to kick off the school year. This year, our back to school lunch was held on Friday August 21, 2009.
Our menu this year included hot dogs on a bun, chili, watermelon, pineapple orange juice and snow cones. Since it was 110*F on Friday, the snow cones were a big hit! There were a lot of blue lips and tongues on both students, faculty and PTSA members.
I'd like to thank both Albertson's on Dixie Drive in St. George and Lin's Market on the same street for their very generous donations of food for this event. We received all of our hot dogs for free, the majority from Lin's, and Albertson's gave us 4 watermelons, hot dogs and a $30 gift card which covered our paper supplies. Please thank manager Steve, at Albertson's and manager Phil, at Lin's for supporting our school. It doesn't hurt to email Albertson's and Lin's regional offices and say thanks! Please support these businesses!
I'd also like to thank faculty, staff, parents and students for all of their help. Student body officers made the snow cones (you guys are awesome!), Andy Hunsaker was the main chef on the barbecue, cooking the hot dogs, and Jan Hunsaker showed her watermelon cutting skills. I noticed all of the faculty and staff helping students get their food in a timely manner. Also, we had several fantastic parents helping prepare and serve the food. Many, many thanks to all of you.
