Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents, past and present. Adventurous students at Franklin Elementary School can enjoy our Sushi Promotion February 27.

Sushi is served with a choice of wasabi, ginger, soy sauce, and CHOP STICKS. Keep an eye out for Sushi Day in Jefferson, Lincoln, and Washington schools this April. Pomptonian is pleased to be Summit’s food service provider, and we […]
