Woodgrove High School teachers got a warm welcome today when 12 Purcellville restaurants chipped in for their lunches.
Principal Sam Shipp said the school teamed up with the restaurants to cover the cost of the educators’ meals. “They’ve been very gracious.”
When the school employees arrived at the restaurants, they were greeted by signs created by students. One sign read: “Welcome back, Woodgrove staff!”
“This is a fun way to celebrate teachers coming back,” Shipp said. “We wanted to go out to the business community and create those connections. It’s been a great way to kick off the school year.”
The restaurants that took part in Woodgrove’s lunch today are: IJ Canns, Coach’s Corner, Casa Tequila Bar & Grill, Coney Island Diner, Velocity Wings, Pen’s Oriental Kitchen, Smokin Willy, Magnolia’s at the Mill, Market Street Burger, Anthony’s, Monk’s BBQ and El Rancho.
All Loudoun County public school teachers return to work today. They will spend the next several days prepping for students to return, Aug. 28.
