Bell Share Tables and Milk Mustaches
Our students found out that share tables were allowed in schools and jumped on the idea. We created an area in the cafeteria for students to put unwanted items, and select extras of some of their favorites. Our big focus was on milk. Many students were excited about having the additional milk and we all celebrated with a Milk Mustache  Day. It will be a part of our school forever, now that we don't waste good food.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students came up with ideas and we supported them by making posters and allowing them to inform the students through the use of morning announcements.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

This share table will be a permanent fixture at our school
