On Wednesday, January 27th, the second grade students at Sage Creek Elementary were treated to a visit from Domino’s Pizza as part of their social studies ‘goods and services’ unit. Becky, a member of the hard working Domino's Pizza team, is totally committed to excellence and serious about having fun. Becky demonstrated this as she tossed two combined balls of pizza dough into the air, creating one of the largest pizzas we have ever seen! We also found out that her favorite pizza topping is pineapple!

The students learned how all of their dough starts out in Denver, Co., before making its way to the stores across the world. We also found out that a “spoodle” is the tool used to both scoop and spread the sauce onto the dough. Three of the second grade teachers were given the chance to roll out their own ball of dough and then try their hand at throwing it up into the air to stretch it out. We think you better just stick to teaching, teachers!
  Becky taught us how Domino’s Pizza began nearly 50 years ago as one small pizza shop in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The two brothers that started the company originally thought to put one dot on the domino logo for each store they opened. Soon, however, they found out all of their dots would no longer fit . . . they had too many stores! Today, they have about 8,700 store locations worldwide.

At the close of their presentation, all of the second graders were treated to a hot slice of this world famous pizza. Thank you, Domino’s Pizza, for an awesome and tasty visit!
