  • Homecoming Beauty
  • Students earn rewards for good behavior

    Surrounded by balloons and guitars on the cafeteria stage, with posters of Hanna Montana and the Jonas Brothers, a giant inflatable jukebox, and records hanging from the ceiling, Bronson Elementary students are eating, dancing, giggling, and blowing lots of bubbles.

    "Can I freshen up your drink, miss?" teacher Mark Roberts asks a first grade student. With her approval, he proceeds to top off her fruit punch and add fresh ice. Roberts is spending Friday moonlighting as maitre'd for BES's Hard Work Cafe.
