We LOVE Lunchtime!

Students who love lunchtime are more likely to feel like they belong!

School lunchtime is more than just time to eat. Students learn everything from good manners to good nutrition! At the same time, lunch is a less structured time for students to relax and enjoy time with friends.

At lunchtime, our students learn important life lessons:

Waiting. It's boring, but waiting is an essential skill in life. Waiting calmly and quietly in line is a struggle for some students, but at lunchtime they can practice things to do while waiting (for example, looking at the menus that are projected on our TV monitors and thinking about their lunch choices).

Practicing skills. Everything students do, from entering their lunch number, to managing their trays and using utensils, helps them gain independence. That's our goal! It may take a little longer to wait for little fingers to do these tasks themselves, but we want all of our students able to feed themselves.

Requesting and making choices. Students have options at lunchtime, just like they do at a restaurant. Students learn to listen to their options, and request the items they select. It's important for all students to express their wants and needs.

Social skills. Students sit next to peers and get to talk about topics of their choice. We all come from different homes, communities, and even cultures. Students learn to navigate social conversations with others who may be different from them. They practice listening, asking questions, and speaking.

Respect and Responsibility. Students learn to keep their personal food items close to themselves and to respect the space needed by their neighbors. Students learn to keep their areas neat and to clean up their trash.

We welcome parents to school to enjoy lunchtime with their children, but we ask you help your child gain the independence they need in life. Allow your child to complete the tasks they need to practice, even if they take a little longer than if you did it for them. Let them practice using utensils to feed themselves, pick up their own trash, and have conversations with those around them. You will be glad you did!
