Hospitality Tables

Hospitality Tables

Our ASB students together with our PTSA parents, have joined forces to host a Hospitality Table during lunch. This will be a table where students can place unwanted food items for other students who may want extra.

Other students will have the ability to take whatever they would like from this table.

ASB students will be directing student traffic around the hospitality table. Distributing information, directing kids where to go to grab the food, where to place their unwanted food, answer any questions that students may have.

Thank you to all who have helped get this endeavor started!
