During this holiday season, I have tried to be especially aware of the good going on around us and while doing so, I have become aware of an interesting new program being started in West Cobb. The program, called the “Teacher’s Lunch Box”, is the brainchild of Mr. Matt Sellors, proprietor of the Daily Grind, located just off Due West Road across from Due West United Methodist Church.
The Teacher’s Lunch Box program provides a venue for parents and other community members to reward local teachers for a job well done. By going to its web site, you can treat a teacher to a delicious and healthy lunch that will be delivered right to the teacher’s school. While local schools have a number of formal recognition programs, this program is informal and allows you to reward a teacher you know who has gone out of his or her way to help our students. I recommend exploring the web site to further familiarize yourself with the program and consider rewarding a teacher.
In its early stages, the program is now limited to Due West Elementary and Harrison High School. However, I have heard that Lost Mountain Middle School is likely soon to follow. Encourage your local schools and teachers in West Cobb to sign up and consider rewarding a teacher. Teachers are among the unsung heroes of our community and this looks like a great way to show our appreciation.
