Wentworth Elementary students return to school

In August, Garrett Popcorn Shop® employees welcomed students back to school and helped kick off the start of the academic year with complimentary tins for the students and teachers of D. S. Wentworth Elementary School. “To actually see Garrett Popcorn cheer the students on got them excited and motivated them to be at school. It was exciting. The staff and parents were just as excited. It was a great way to begin the school year,” said Principal Dina Everage.

Celebrating academic excellence

We returned on March 15 to celebrate the perfect attendance students who participated in the Illinois Standard Achievement Test. Megan Chody, from Garrett Popcorn Shops, praised both the students and their principal, “Principal Dina Everage keeps finding ways to have her children succeed. And that’s how children grow and learn. Hopefully through this initiative we can encourage similar rewards at other schools.”

“It’s always wonderful when you can have a partner who can provide alternatives to motivate students. It’s exciting that every student who achieved this goal received a reward,” said Everson.

Garrett Popcorn Shops support of Wentworth Elementary is part of our continuing effort to give back to the Chicago community. Thank you to Principal Everage and the students of D.S. Wentworth Elementary for letting us be a part of your success!

  1. I am a native Chicagoan who now lives in Columbia, SC. As children, when my mother would take us downtown, our treat would be to go to Garrett’s. We would get a small bag of buttered popcorn and a piece of fudge!! OMG, we were in seventh heaven : )
    I wish Garrett’s was here in Columbia. Unfortunately, I have not found any company in Columbia that can touch your popcorn. Any prospects of coming to Columbia??
    I’ve been bragging to the teachers at my school (Dent Middle School) about your popcorn! Would it be possible to send a sample canister! I’d really be be so appreciative and then they will understand why I sing such high praises of Garrett’s popcorn!!
