I use the students in my Anchor Club (service club) to serve the food and clean labor and they get service hours too

I am the sponsor of our middle school Anchor Club (service club) as well as a teacher. My students have come up with a theme "AMS teachers are ofFISHly the best: They plan to cover the tables with fish netting, lay a few shells around and have a live fish floating in a bowl for the centerpieces. We are going to make our invitations, decorations and banners from colored copy paper and bulletin board paper. Each teach will receive a "memory" from a student given to them at lunch.

As for lunch, we have a local grocery store that sells a hot lunch - we are purchasing 2 sets of dinners - each comes with 48 pieces of chicken, 4 large sides, 24 rolls. We will still have to provide drinks and desserts. The price for each dinner $39.99 pretty cheap...

Hope this helps!

I am President of a middle school in ct with approximately 1200 students and 125 or more teachers. Last year we did the luncheon thing and it was difficult with little money and few volunteers. This year I am going to try something different. I am going to set up a week long "hospitality room" in the teacher's lounge. We are going to stock it daily with all individually wrapped treats and chips etc. We also plan to have granola bars etc and drinks. We will have flowers and am making a basket of all things to be given away by a drawing but for free no money tickets. I will keep you posted if it works.

our theme last year was "this place would be a zoo without you"

You could have cutouts of zoo animals stuck in the good-- small bags of aniimal crackers 1 day--- animal magnets, monkey bread for a breakfast snack one day--- or bananas and fruit--

Another could be you rock---
And do a rock and roll theme-- make some sort of stage--- guitar cut-outs/ stars/
and such

Anything with the word 'Hoppy' instead of 'Happy' is so cheesy it could actually be cool. Uhh, or not depending on if they like frogs or not. Oh, boy I should have deleted this before posting :)

Our PTO hosted a pulled pork barbeque last year. The teachers absolutely loved it and actually requested a similar luncheon this summer. The budget was about $700 which fed over 100 teachers/staff and included all paper products, drinks, and a beautiful cake, along with the BBQ.
