They’re Back! Willow Lane 5th Graders Take Over Donatelli’s

Fifth grade students from Willow Lane Elementary School pause for a photo before starting a busy day of work at Donatelli’s in White Bear Lake

WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. – The Willow Lane Students are coming to take over Donatelli’s again. This will be the 4th year the 5th grade students from Willow Lane have taken over. Each year, students are encouraged to compile a resume, then they go through a real interview with Donatelli’s staff, after which they are given their job, which could mean waiting tables, hostessing, cooking or washing dishes.

This is all part of a partnership we’ve established to provide these kids a real work experience as part of their studies. We believe it helps prepare them for the day when they will be responsible to support themselves, their families and their community.
Besides that, these kids are cuter than you can imagine.

Please come in and show your support! And if you are able, please help spread the word, it is so much more fun for the kids when the restaurant is busy.


Join us on the following Tuesdays, March 12th, 19th & April 2nd & 9th from 11 am to 1 pm.
