Zombie Luncheon

October 23, 2012:  Strasburg High School Zombie Luncheon!
Over 160 students entered the drawing to win an invitation to the Teen Read Week Zombie Luncheon.  Thirty five students were randomly selected to receive invitations.   

Needless to say, a great deal of reading was going on!  The luncheon was fun and definitely a unique reading celebration!

The Rot and Ruin series by Jonathan Maberry: our inspiration for the event!

Martha: Zombie Librarian...could not have not it without your support and enthusiasm for all things zombie!!  

Mrs. Rusher: Zombie Assistant Principal extraordinaire: thank you for your assistance serving Rot and Ruin Worm Sandwiches: well done!

Thanks to everyone in our school and their support for READING!

A quick review so we can repeat this next year!

  • ·         Food: 50 beef hot dogs cut into “worms”: right amount
  • ·         Barbecue Sauce: one large bottle, one small bottle: just right
  • ·         48 cupcakes with “body parts” from the Halloween dept. at Walmart: just right
  • ·         Beans: the one restaurant size can would have been more than enough
  • ·         Chips: one huge bag was enough but we could have used another smaller bag
  • ·         40 mummy juice boxes: enough
  • ·         Salsa: one large jar was enough: did not need the second jar
  • ·         Carrots: one bag was enough: don’t use the carrot “chips”
  • ·         Rolls: bags to serve 40: enough
  • ·         Idea: use hot dog rolls next year instead of burger rolls
  • ·         DVD: P. Allen Smith Zombie video and two Three Stooges videos from You Tube: perfect thanks to Cody Vance’s help!
  • ·         Decorations: Martha Stout to the rescue: electric tea lights and a cackling witch!  The plastic body parts and rats: very classy: plastic table clothes, black plates and napkins.
  • ·         Mrs. Sours: zombie photographer: great help!
  • ·         Zombie book marks and plenty of books as decorations
  • ·         TV decorations: batty bats and lights
