Heath Extended Day 5-7 Newsletter
During the month of February...
During the month of February 5/7 students were busy taking part in student goals, clubs and wish days. We finished up on weekly cake baking due to many students goals of wanting to learn how to make cake from scratch. During last two weeks of this activity students made homemade pineapple upside down cake and cake pops! We hope that students are able to take what they have learned home with them and make yummy treats for your family! Mondays clubs of cartooning and board games are going great and the students seem to behaving so much fun. These two Monday clubs will continue into March for a couple of more weeks. Wish days have been a huge hit! February wish days have included: ice cream party, Trivia day, group game day, and chocolate chip brown cake baking day!
February’s family dinner consisted of breakfast for dinner. Students made scrambled eggs, hash browns, french toast and fruit salad. For dessert, students made mini ice cream cookie sandwiches.
February’s iron chef competition was quesadillas. Ingredients included corn tortillas, onion, broccoli, corn, potatoes, beans, rice, tomato, peppers, avocado, and a variety of different cheeses. Each team chose a bag from each category of items and had to make two different quesadillas with the ingredients found in their bags. One group had to use the mystery ingredient in one of their quesadillas. They were happy when they found out they were able to use steak strips in their recipe. Students were creative in the pairing of ingredients and really enjoyed tasting the different recipes. They were surprised with how good a corn, broccoli, and cheese quesadilla could actually be. One group was amazed at how quickly thirty minutes went by, as they ran out of time to cook their quesadillas in the skillet so had to resort to the microwave to finish their quesadillas.
