Lunch is served...

Here's what the bento boxes and plates look like when they're delivered...notice the labels on the forks and chopsticks - teacher's names.
I'm also happy that we can have live plants in here. I remember we couldn't have any in our Florida classrooms (why?). Yet I remember here, in a Japanese elementary school, the principal beamed when he showed off the fresh flower arrangements displayed about the school. He said he was happy to have these flowers because they 'calmed the students'...
Hmmm...there's an idea :)

Tracey--

Sounds like such a civilised way to do "take-out" meals. Do the actually put individual teacher's names on the forks/chopsticks? About the living plants-----I had some in my elementary school classroom!! Maybe it's a school-based decision. In fact--one of the favorite classroom "jobs" was to be the "plant person".

Hang in there----take care of y urself and keep smilin'

Love-------Cathy
