Congratulations to our Culinary Program and 1st year teacher - Ms. Russell!!!

They placed 3rd in the state which is great due to the fact they were facing teachers and students who have been using this Culinary Arts curriculum for years and we just started this year! Students have been practicing every weekend and even during the snow day!
