Culinary is a relatively new elective class currently offered to 7th and 8th grade students at HJH. Throughout the course of this class, students will develop leadership, communication, and employability skills in the field of culinary. They will learn about resource management, explore careers in the culinary field, and learn about the importance of health and safety in the culinary environment.  Students will receive instruction and learning opportunities in a laboratory (kitchen) setting using hands-on experiences with the appropriate equipment, material, and technology. As they advance, they will also learn more about planning nutritious meals, table-settings and service and etiquette/manners, shopping/budgeting, and more. The second semester of the 8th grade class can also earn students some high school credit and an industry certification.
