Originally named Memorial Hall upon completion in 1961, the school cafeteria was once the location for school plays, Brunch and other special events. In 15 months, it was expanded from 9,500 square feet to 15,500 square feet with expansions to the south (patio), west (Mooreland Rd.) and north (school service area). It now offers four serving areas plus an extensive salad and sandwich bar.
