In early September, we met an amazing teacher at Marshall Road Elementary, her name is Ms. Emily Ratzenberger, a 6th grade teacher. During one of her classes, her students were asked to write a persuasive essay. After finding out that their teacher assistant, Joey owned Chase the Submarine, some students chose to write their persuasive essay on: naming a sub after their teacher Ms Ratzenberger.
So, after the kids voted on the new name for our chicken salad sub: “The Emilycious”, we decided that proceeds from the sale of all “Emilycious” subs will be used to purchase and donate a technology cart to Marshall Road Elementary. The fundraiser begins with a big party, Tuesday, January 24th and it will go until the end of the school year. Please join us in our effort to make our community stronger.
