SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - About 40 Greenbrook Elementary School Students went to a pizzeria and a school yearbook company on Thursday for Take Your “Student” To Work Day.

The students split into two groups, one visiting Alfonso’s Pizzeria in Princeton, the other visiting Entourage Yearbook Company in West Windsor.

The students made pizza by putting oil in the pan, stretching the dough, adding sauce, cheese and topping, and put it in the oven.

“It was fun,"  fourth grade Grace Caruso, 9, of Dayton said. “Because we learned how to make pizza.”

Alfonso’s gave students stickers to make a paper pizza of their own. Students also took a tour of the restaurant and made chef hats.

The staff of the restaurant helped them make real pizzas as well.

At Entourage Yearbook Company students learned how the books were printed and assembled.

Fifth grade student Jessica Abdelsayed, 10, Monmouth Junction, said, “We learned how to make hardcover books by taking normal paper and cardboard and putting it into a machine."

Students learned about different types of paper in the process.

They also learned about laminating and that pages print together and not next to each other.

The field trip gave students a look at different kinds of jobs, and how things are made.

Following the field trips, the students returned to the school and wrote this article with the help of TAP into South Brunswick and Cranbury Editor Charles W. Kim.
