Middle School


Making Smoothies

 Note:  Cooking is not being offered in the 2012-2013 school year.  We hope to offer it again soon.
Our cooking class teaches students about nutrition, safety in the kitchen, following a recipe and basic cooking techniques.  And the best part is you get to eat a lot of delicious food that you have cooked!
