Lunar New Year, SOSSA & More

Lunar New Year

To celebrate the Lunar New Year, the Food & Nutrition class planned, prepared and pan-fried 750+ dumplings for the school community to enjoy on Tuesday, February 5th.

The ESL joined our class on Monday afternoon to help assemble the dumplings while the entire group was blessed by Mrs. Alice Muramaki’s skill and expertise in teaching us the proper technique and skill for this outreach project.

The highlights shared by the for the Food’s students included

  • having so many staff and students returning for seconds
  • the students who were skeptical about the dumplings responding to how delicious they were
  • the opportunity to make these from scratch on Friday together to learn each step of the process

It was a blessing to celebrate this occasion with this project to share with the entire school.

In the finals, a back and forth match, with chances to win occurring right up to the final buzzer, ended in an overtime loss to London.


MegaBloc

MegaBloc students had their entry event for their upcoming “Sharing Beauty Project.” The entry event involved a fun design challenge, where they had to work with their project groups to complete a design challenge using minimal materials to build a tower to hold a marshmallow.

Students will be challenged to be creative in design as they work together in these groups for the project. Stay tuned to hear more about the “Sharing Beauty Project.”
