The lunch was a large math project where the students calculated how to make small recipes into larger recipes that would feed 100 people. They did the math, shopped and spent two days cooking all the food and making the decorations.
One of the handmade centerpieces created by students at Ave A School for their Thanksgiving lunch Tuesday. The lunch not only fed the teachers and students, but special guests like the principal and the school superintendent were invited to dine as well. The students cooked the lunch, made the decorations, greeted guests at the door and served the lunch to each guest at their table.
