Clubs
The French and Spanish clubs, headed by Mrs. Acosta and Mrs. Westfall, visited à la Carte Culinary Services in Lynbrook on December 8th.

Cooking
After a brief safety lesson and recipe overview, the students broke into hands-on cooking teams and got to work making gougères (a French puffed pastry topped with gruyère cheese), pissaladières (a Provençal open tart resembling pizza, typically made with onions, anchovies, and black olives) paella (a Spanish dish of rice, saffron, chicken, seafood, etc., cooked and served in a large shallow pan.), and pico de gallo y guacamole.


Food and Menu
After choruses of, "Can we do this again?", the students sat down and enjoyed the meals they had prepared. For dessert, the club members enjoyed Nutella and jam filled crepes. After years of learning the vocabulary necessary, the RHS French and Spanish Club students experienced the authenticity of French and Spanish cuisine while developing their leadership and cooking skills by working together toward a delicious end result!

The data shows that kids with the highest test scores are the most active in afterschool activities. >Education News

This study has calculated that the odds of attending college were 97 percent higher for youngsters who took part in school-sponsored activities for two years than for those who didn't do any school activities. Three times as many had a GPA of 3.0 or higher; twice as many scored in the top quarter on math and reading tests. And 68 percent expected to get a college degree, compared to 48 percent of kids who weren't.
