R. L. Young's Hardwork Cafe

Where is the best place to eat? R. L. Young's HARDWORK CAFE. Our reading coach, Mrs. Nunn brought the idea to me last spring and since then many people have jumped on board to create this special eating place.

The Cafe will serve as a dining place for Good Citizen luncheons, most improved student recipients, and TOP DOG students. (No tardies, no checkouts, no absences). Teachers in the classrooms are also dreaming up ways to reward students using the Hardwork Cafe.

PTO and the school's general fund purchased the tables. PTO officer Hope T. Allen arranged for her brother to construct the awning, helped to cover it, recovered the chairs, and even purchased twinkling lights to hang. The beautiful Monet painting is on loan from Mrs. Allen, too. A chalkboard is being painted and will be placed in the Cafe soon. Townsends donated shutters to give it a "Cafe" feel. Mr. Jemison, our custodian assembled all the tables and chairs and helped hang the awning. We appreciate the teamwork approach that continues to make things happen at Young.

It is important to motivate and reward the hard work of our students, faculty, and staff. I hope the Cafe is used every day by some deserving student or adult.
