"Teachers Need Ice Cream" Strike

At McVay Elementary, 4th Grade students were learning about Cesar Chavez strikes, boycotts, and unions in reading. On Friday, they held a “strike” to protest that teachers need more ice cream.

 

Students and teachers from the 4th Grade classes marched on the sidewalk in front of McVay, holding signs proclaiming the need for more ice cream while chanting “We want ice cream!” Principal Hannig came out during the protest to remind students to keep working.

 

A student and Principal Hannig came to an agreement after a negotiation. Principal Hannig said that he would give everyone ice cream sandwiches as long as they worked hard. Everyone cheered, and they went inside the school to enjoy the ice cream!
