Our compliments to the Chef!

During Teacher Appreciation week, our school's cafeteria staff treated the teachers to a complimentary BBQ lunch. It was de-lish!

Well, today was our report cards day, but it was also our annual lunch for our cafeteria and custodial staff! All the food was prepared by Mrs. Green, our librarian, and all-around amazing teammate!

So, what did Mrs. Green prepare, you might ask? Homemade EVERYTHING!

BBQ chicken with 2 homemade sauces

Greens with ham

Chocolate cobbler with vanilla ice cream
If you've ever attended a Pampered Chef party, you've had this dessert. It's made with a box cake mix and icing, but cooked in the microwave for 10 min! It's the power of the pot.

Mrs. Green also prepared cornbread, rice, and potato salad, but I didn't get pictures. Ms. Payton helped with set-up and I helped serve dessert. (but let's be honest, I just wanted to be close to the chocolate cobbler)

 Our cafeteria staff, Mr. Williams, our Principals, and Mrs. Green

I had to get a close-up of Mr. Williams. He's our head custodian, and he rules the school! When we had a daycare at the school and my 3 attended, they L.O.V.E.D Mr. Williams. Especially my little girl. :)

Awesome job, Mrs. Green!
And a BIG shout-out to our unsung heroes of the CHES staff! Thank you for making sure out students are fed and can learn in a clean and safe environment!

AND- Thank you to my students that came by to see me today and get your report cards!

This is not all of my students that came today, but most came in the car line and I couldn't get a picture from outside the car. Just know that I miss you all!

Have a great summer, and keep checking back! I have some Celebrity Story Saturdays lined up!


  1. Kristi Green is the BEST. I have had the pleasure of teaching with her at Sequoyah High School and we are still friends today. She is not only an excellent educator, but a wonderful, caring person as well.

  2. I wholeheartedly concur! Mrs. Green is wonderful! She will be missed next year!
