Culinary Class - Pnina Loeb

The Culinary class is off to a great start! First of all, thank you so much to all of the families that donated $50 to help our class buy food supplies. We spend an average of $100 a week on food supplies for three classes as we cook each week. It adds up really fast. After starting the year with food preparation basics and getting to know our kitchens, we are moving forward to more complicated menu items.  Each week we do something new and it's always exciting! 

Welcome, all new and returning Spartans.

We'll have fun in the kitchen preparing and eating some great foods while learning culinary basics, a variety of cultural foods, nutrition and food production and celebrating holidays.

Bring your appetite and let’s “get cooking!”

The culinary class supplies everything you need to participate thanks to your generous donation of

$25.00 during the first month of school. Checks can be made payable to HSMS.

Recommended Supplies:

  • 3 ring bind

Drama - Jaime Hamilton

Drama is a great class!  It is a wonderful place to make close friendships and lasting memories.  Students learn acting and vocal technique and improvisational skills, in preparation for the class productions.  Typically we have two productions in a school year. The Winter Showcase, comprised of a one-act play, a series of monologues, and a few musical numbers, will be at the end of the first semester. The second production will be a full-on musical performed at the end of the school year. 
 
As a drama student, you will be required to:
1. Participate in classroom assignments
2. Memorize lines and blocking when assigned
3. Attend afterschool rehearsals when required (calendars will be provided in advance) 
4. Attend at least one Saturday work party per semester (Don’t worry! They’re fun!) 
5. Attend and participate in ALL scheduled performances.
