Special Programs

Cooks with Books: We thread curriculum and Literacy together though our "Cooks with Books" program.  The small bites curriculum is designed to teach students about nutrition and healthy eating through a series of classroom/kitchen lessons.

 

The Science of Food: Our herb, vegetable and fruit garden provides a living classroom experience for students.  The teachers use the garden to strengthen core curriculum instruction, to excite and engage students about the science of how food grows, the importance of nutrition, and a healthy diet.
