Instructor: Scott D.
The centerpiece of each of our enrichment programs and classes is focused on teaching educational, hands-on, culinary activities that focus on fun, health, safety, nutrition and teamwork.
The Culinary Dude’s goal is simple and meaningful: Empower our students with the culinary skills to become self-sufficient and make healthy choices. Our classes are methodically planned out, incorporating state, national and international standards in safety, nutrition and health.
Your children are not numbers to us! Unlike other programs who just want your money, our focus is to cater to each child individually, help them where they need improvement and cap our class numbers to keep the class intimate, so your child does not get lost in the masses and feels like they are truly a part of the whole. We are a nut-free business and use sunflower seeds and SunButter as a nut replacement unless otherwise requested.

Literacy Enrichment Club/in After School /by Jessie Spillane
Grades: K – 1
Day and time: Wednesdays, 2:45 – 3:30 pm
Sign-Up: See sign-up info on Schoology page
The After School Literacy Enrichment club will be an after-school program made with the intention of improving the reading comprehension skills of younger students. The material covered will be primarily comprised of picture books and short stories. The children will vote on which books they want the group to read, which will be taken from a tasteful selection. The books will be read to the children by our 7th and 8th-grade club monitors, but children will be encouraged to volunteer to read to their peers as well. After we finish each book, the children will be given an activity prompt to creatively utilize their minds and express what they’ve read. That activity may be a drawing prompt or an activity involving other children. For more info, click here.
