What she wore: polo with wide black and white stripes (a nod to the nautical trend), white capris with a cuff, black slides with a kitten heel, and a black and white stiped button.
A few of our gifted and talented student participated in a free enterprise contest during electives. As a thank you for all their hard work, the principal and a few teachers chipped in to take the kids to Olive Garden. They worked it out with Olive Garden so they could get the lunchtime prices instead of dinner, and they reserved the dining room. The teachers got the menu and let the kids look at it, so they could start thinking about what they want to eat.
I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ll do it again: most of the kids at our school come from very poor families. Most of our kids qualify for free lunch which means the government pays for their lunches and provides them breakfast since their family doesn’t make enough money. Many of our students have never been a restaurant nicer than McDonalds.
The menu for Olive Garden is a little confusing. There are no burgers, no fries, and no chicken fingers. They don’t even have pizza.
A few of the kids were staring at the menu. They’re gifted, so they can read, but that doesn’t mean they know what the menu is talking about.
After much consideration, a quiet young boy looked at one of the teachers involved and said, "can we just go get some pizza? This Italian stuff is confusing."
Aren’t kids just too funny?
