Lunch Bunch

Ellen Zissis from Chartiers Valley Primary School in Bridgeville, PA, submitted the "Lunch Bunch" button idea. Each teacher at the school chooses one worthy student each month to participate in the Lunch Bunch. Winning kids get to eat lunch with the school administration and teachers - and they each get a Lunch Bunch button to wear that day. The program promotes self-esteem and good behavior - it's an honor to be chosen for the Lunch Bunch! The buttons also serve very practical purposes: students wearing the buttons get to go to the front of the lunch line, and teachers can see at a glance who will be eating with them. Ellen notes that the program works like a charm month after month. In fact, one time they ran out of buttons and the kids that didn't get them cried! That goes to show you how much everyone loves buttons!!
