Hello Little Chefs and Families,

Little Chefs, I miss seeing your smiling faces in the morning, your laughter and chuckles throughout our school day. I hope that you and your family are doing well. This is an unprecedented time for all of us and it can be very stressful. Also, it can be a time of reflection- by focusing more time spent with our families and on our health and well being. I am optimistic that we will come out on the other side soon and get back to some degree of normalcy.  Please remember: This to shall pass. In the meantime, we need to provide support to one another when and where needed. A smile will make all the difference in someone's day.
