Starting next grading period, the junior high nutrition and finance class will begin cooking for the first time this year.
During the first nine weeks, students learn how to handle finances, such as writing checks, doing taxes and dealing with payments. In the second nine weeks, students learn different cooking techniques and ingredients and apply those skills by cooking different foods.
For their first dish, they will be making cinnamon roll bites.
“I think it will be fun just learning how to cook,” said eighth grader Kayson Simpson.
