Lasley's Diner serves up life lessons (Video)






Most people look forward to Friday. At Riverside School, it’s specifically lunch time on Fridays that students and staff never want to miss.
Kristen Lasley’s class turns into “Lasley’s Diner,” where students with special needs prepare and deliver custom lunches ordered by faculty and staff. Lasley, an intervention specialist, and colleagues teach life skills to sixth- through eighth-graders who learn how to set a menu, package the food, handle money and much more.
