Students at Sam Adams Elementary joined others around the United States in taking part in School Lunch Hero Day May 6.

Sam Adams students showed their appreciation for their school nutrition staff as part of School Lunch Hero day by creating thank you cards, posters and banners.

In return, the nutrition staff rewarded with them with cupcakes.

“Cassopolis Public Schools is sharing in the May 6 celebration of “Lunch Lady Day,” Bright said. “This is our first year, so we are very excited. Cassopolis food service donated the books that were developed by Mr. Krosoczka and donated to the library. The students have been reading those books and are very excited about them as you can see by some of the posters that have the “Lunch Lady” character on them. We so appreciate my staff and we thought this would be a great way to honor them today.”

School Lunch Hero Day is a nationwide celebration hosted by Jarrett J. Krosoczka, author and illustrator of “Lunch Lady,” the graphic novel series, School Nutrition Association and Random House children’s books.

The “Lunch Lady” book series were purchased by the food service department and donated to the Sam Adam library.

The nutrition staff wore T-shirts and bookmarks were purchased for the entire student body according to Robyn Bright, Cassopolis Public Schools food service director.
