Monday, December 11th, was the First-Annual Holiday Cookie Extravaganza. 180-dozen cookies were baked by Culinary Arts and Nutrition students, employees, and parents. The cookies were then shared with local seniors as an expression of gratitude for their important roles in our communities and our lives.
Superintendent Dr. Lutz hopes the event will become a new holiday tradition for the District. He shared, "Our goals are simple: we want to say thank you to our senior residents for their continued support and their investment in our schools. For many, it may be the first visit to our schools in a very long time and we want to share with them our advances in education, technology, facilities, and resources for students. We want to build bridges through which our students will undoubtedly benefit from the vast experience and lifetime of valuable knowledge that our senior residents might share with us. Our holiday event is designed to serve as a kick-off for a more robust series of events planned in 2018. While we are starting at Baldwin High School, our plan is to bring these types of events to all of our schools."
Seniors loved visiting the school where they were able to meet students, enjoy holiday music performances, tour the school, and, of course, take home fresh, home-baked holiday cookies. This was a wonderful chance for members of the community who don't always cross paths to come together and celebrate a season of giving. Special thanks to the bakers and event team, BHS teachers, administration, board members, Culinary students, Stage Band, and Baldwinaires for their great work.
