They’re Back! – The Willow Lane Students are taking over Donatelli’s again!
This is the 5th year, the 5th grade class from Willow Lane have taken over the restaurant — But this year’s class is the largest class in the history of the district. That means we really had to step it up to give every kid a chance to participate. The first thing was to increase the number of days kids would run Donatelli’s. In years past, we’ve done four Tuesdays. This year it will be FIVE! — starting February 4, 2014 and ending March 4, 2014.
Each year, as part of the program, students are encouraged to compile a resume, which they will use to represent themselves during a real interview with Donatelli’s staff. Once “hired”, they are assigned a job they are best suited for and comfortable performing, which could be anything from waiting tables and hosting duties to cooking or preparing food.
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.
Don’t miss out this year—please come in and show your support! And, if you are able to, help us spread the word—it is so much more fun for the kids when the restaurant is busy.
So, join us on the following Tuesdays, February 4, 11, 18, 25 and March 4 from 11 am to 1 pm.
