Hard work pays off for Got Lunch!


Every year, fifth-grade students run the Woodland Heights School Store, with the guidance of a fifth-grade teacher. At the beginning of the school year, students have the opportunity to apply for a “job” to work at the store. Students are required to fill out an application, answer money questions, and obtain parental permission. Students are then “hired” and come in early one day a week to set up and run the store. Students learn valuable customer relation skills, money handling skills, and leadership skills while running the store. Over the course of the year, members think of different ways to give back to our school and community. Because of the Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive, students felt it was needed to donate money to the Got Lunch! program to support the purchase of other items such as bread.
