Middle School High Ability Learner (HAL) students expand culinary skills at HyVee

With stoves fired up and fresh ingredients sautéing in the frying pan, Papillion La Vista Community Schools High Ability Learner (HAL) students were hard at work making their culinary creations come to life at the Shadow Lake Towne Center HyVee on Wed., Dec. 5. These students were selected because of their interested in culinary arts. They spoke with a dietitian and chef to create a healthy meal plan. After planning, budgeting and shopping for fresh ingredients, students moved to the kitchen to cook the food. This program is a great opportunity for students to enrich their curriculum through our PLCS Cooperation BEST program.
