Every year our school holds an International Food Fair to celebrate the diversity of our student body and raise funds for Home & School. Each teacher selects a country and together with their students and parents prepares an attractive booth with food items to sell.
I've done several countries in the past, but this year it was France that came to mind. With a few transparencies, markers and paints, a set of Christmas lights and a lot of helpful students, we created a European Pastry Shop.
My student's parents and grandparents provided us with so many kinds of delicious baked goods that our booth ran over to the table beside us. I am so thankful for them! From noon to 2:30 p.m. we had customers every moment.
Many thanks as well to my great students who worked so cheerfully and rapidly to prepare, set up and run the booth. I couldn't be a happier teacher!
