Thunder Lab

Today Foods had their first full lab. It was the Thunder Lab. Students made Thunder Juice (orange Julius) and Thunder Twists (pretzels). My room smelled great, but it was really HOT!!! With 7 ovens going my room heated up pretty quickly. I am looking forward to the day when the district decides to turn the air back on!! Good job though guys! The pretzels look great!

Shake Out Your Future!

Today, the FACS Exploration classes played a game similar to MASH. They rolled a dice to determine what they would achieve in their life. The game was a new one and something the students really enjoyed. There were a lot of "lives" that were completely different than what they were expecting!
