On November 21, 2013, Miss Shirley’s Food Truck had the opportunity to take a trip to Monarch Academy and share our knowledge of restaurant operations with a few of Monarch’s Kindergarten classes. As a part of the school’s project-based learning curriculum, the Kindergarteners were completing a unit on Restaurants, and we were able to give them a first-hand look at how our food truck operates.
The Miss Shirley’s Team had a blast teaching the students about our restaurants and giving them a chance to peek inside the truck. We were impressed with the children during the lesson. They were polite, well behaved and attentive. Their questions indicated curiosity and interest in the material, and they were a great audience! We are so glad to participate in the creative and comprehensive curriculum that Monarch offers their students. Lessons such as the restaurant unit, paired with unique experiences such as visits and trips are engaging and multi-dimensional opportunities for the kids, and we’re proud to help them grow and learn!
We were also glad to provide lunch for the Kindergarteners and give them a taste of one of our most popular children’s menu dishes. They enjoyed Fried Chicken Sliders and Musselman’s Organic Apple Sauce, as Owner David Dopkin had the opportunity to interact with the students and answer their questions.
For the second year in a row, Miss Shirley’s was happy to be a part of this fun and rewarding experience for the children and we hope to participate again next year!
