On Wednesday, February 12, Chef Maria, Ms. Shanahan, Mr. Olmstead and Ms. Buckman coordinated for the Culinary and RISE students to cook and serve breakfast to the Peekskill's professional firefighters. The students prepared the food ahead of time, walked to the firehouse, set up and served the firemen breakfast. While at the firehouse, the students took a tour, watched the firemen respond to a live call and engaged in meaningful conversations with the first responders on duty. This event provided students with both exposure to real life experiences and gave them CTE hours necessary for graduation. Thank you Chef Maria for bringing this vision to life, and thank you to Mr. Olmstead, Ms. Shanahan and Ms. Buckman for supporting Chef Maria.
