Gloria Cook, a teaching assistant at Elden Elementary School, offers third-grader Ciara McDonald a glass of milk as Aidan Miller patiently waits for his. The school was hosting a special Restaurant Day on March 24 for its third-graders to reinforce students' proper dining manners. Restaurant Day is a project of the school's character education committee. Staff and parent volunteers transformed a portion of the school cafeteria into a caf , complete with a hostess, wait staff and tables covered with bright red tablecloths to provide students with a restaurant dining experience. During the lunch, third-graders were expected to say "Please" and "Thank you," as well as sit with napkins on their laps and keep their voices to a proper level.
