MLL ends the school year with a lovely luncheon that provides multiple opportunities for girls to practice skills they learned during the year.
A Luncheon That’s So Much More
End-of-school-year rituals are a common experience for every student in every school in America. For MLL students one of their rituals is a luncheon. But it’s more than just a nice meal and a chance to reminisce about the school year. The year-end luncheon is a part of the curriculum. An event to honor the girls and an opportunity to showcase many of the skills they learned during their mentor year.
The Luncheon demonstrates the following skills, in the following ways:
- Manners: using proper utensils, greeting adults, making small talk
- Teamwork & Gratitude: selecting an adult from the school to honor
- Public Speaking: every girl speaks at a microphone to the group about the adult being honored
- Personal Responsibility: dressing appropriately for the luncheon, being on time
