Every year at Shoreline we have a BBQ for everyone on the first Friday. This is the first whole group project for my leadership class. The BBQ is a welcome to incoming grade 8's and a treat for the 9's and 10's. It's a golden opportunity for clubs and teams to showcase what they are about.
Each small group of students is responsible for preparing the table for one club or team. Other small groups are responsible for things such as the ice-cream stop, the BBQ's, condiment table, juice stand, entertainment and promotions. Everyone cleans up.
We pre-order the tables from our local school board. The costs are divided between the school, the community organization, and the student's council. At the first staff meeting I pass out a reminder to staff especially those that have offered to help.
So that things run smoothly just before lunchtime we call down the grade 8's and then the others.
The menu is:
Cheese Burgers (including a few dozen veggie)
Condiments include the usual plus lettuce, tomatoes and friend onions.
We used to have corn-on-the-cob, but it didn't go over well. Hot dogs are sometimes used for more variety.
