My Students

Our students come to us from a variety of ethnic cultures. We serve a population of students with over 40% coming from low income, socioeconomic backgrounds. Our middle school serves over 1200 students.

The students of our area have endured a traumatic school year following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey last year which destroyed homes, damaged properties, and left many students displaced.

We are Texas Strong, and we are a community that sticks together and helps our fellow neighbors and friends. Our students continually give back to the community through service learning projects. They work hard to provide food, clothing, and toys to those in need, to clean up our roads with trash pick up, and to perform music concerts for our local retirement home.

My Project

My students are excited 7th and 8th graders that can't wait to get cooking in the kitchen. We are expanding our culinary arts program this year and we have many school events that are going to showcase our students' work.

With the 20th Anniversary of our school this year, our culinary students will be in the lime light when they showcase their food creations for our community.

These young chefs will take the cooking techniques they are learning and produce creative works of art.

We need catering supplies to enhance our student events and help students learn how to present food in an appealing way. The crisp, black linens and gleaming porcelain platters will only enhance our students' brilliant food creations!
