Students from the 2017-18 second grade class of the Hebrew Academy (RASG) in Miami Beach served as hosts/hostesses, waiters/waitresses, busboys/ busgirls, kitchen staff and cashiers for their end of the year math project.
The project was a restaurant in the classroom called “The Math and Cheese Cafe” that was opened for a day for parents and school staff and intended to teach the students the importance of math in their everyday lives as they not only took their orders, but totaled the charges and separated tips. The students prepared lunch items and served the food, including pasta, salad, grilled cheese, waffles, s’mores and brownies.
Money raised at the annual restaurant project is donated to Jewish Community Services of South Florida’s Kosher Food Bank in North Miami Beach.
