New teachers, new building, new classes. All these new changes, but what about the cafeteria? It looks the same. Smells the same. So why have there been developments everywhere throughout the school, except in the cafeteria? Well, I’m about to blow your mind: There have been.
Change? Where? Here, in the lunchroom! There is no longer a salad bar and a sub bar, but a salad and sub bar. So, what’s the difference? The two bars are now combined together, giving students more options for toppings on either their sub or salad. This makes both salads and subs even more tasty, and fun to make than before. By combining the bars, students also have a wider variety of sides to grab, including things like bread, applesauce, and oranges.
Many people don’t get salads when they go to lunch, and most assume that the ones who do go to the line are vegetarians. Vegetarians and Vegans all over the school have become more and more upset at this and how it is the only option for them. “When I forget my lunch I don’t have anything to eat, other than salad,” Sydney Carleton claims. “Of course I like salads and such, but I think it’s wrong that  If I’m eating salad every day, I’m going to get sick of it and  There’s not nearly enough of the proper nutrients in a salad, compared to the food given to the carnivores[/omnivores] in our school.” The problem has been among these students for a long time, and is angering many. They have done everything they can to protest, without getting in trouble. Sydney has written multiple papers on the unfairness of not having a vegetarian line: “…we can have two regular lines, an alternate line, an ethnic line, a burger line, and salads and wraps, but NOT a vegetarian line?” If we can fix this problem we could help make the school a little more fair and equal towards all its students.
Have you been reading the chalkboards placed either near the entrance to the burger lunch line or by ala-carte? Probably not, but you should! You have a chance to win a delicious and warm cookie! How, you ask? The lunch ladies create a quiz every so often, that the first person to answer the question wins a free cookie. I repeat: the first person. This means you can’t guess correctly then go tell all your friends the answer. The lunch ladies know what’s going on. So, if you want to win that free cookie, you’re going to have to think fast. The questions aren’t ones that you can look up, either. They’re either personal questions about the lunch ladies combined, such as “All together, how many children do the lunch ladies have?” Or, they can be school related, as in “How many classes does FHS have?” So, if you ever wondered “Why in the world would I be friendly to the lunch ladies?” You now have another reason other than being a good human being with manners. So, what are you going to do next time you go to lunch? You’re going to read that chalkboard, and win a free cookie!
