Barre City Burger Bash
At last year's Summer Summit, BCEMS won the Mushroom Burger Bash! On May 29, 2018 we had Mushroom Burgers, Mushroom tasting, Green Monster Smoothies for all PreK-8th grade students and staff. We had the New England Dairy Council, a  Representative from New Hampshire Mushroom Council, our local farmer from East Montpelier, VT and Pat the Patriot and his real Super Bowl Ring! A great time was had by all and the Mushroom Burgers and Green Monster Smoothies were a hit!! Thank you to all that were able to help us out to make this a great success!!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We teamed up with New England Dairy Council, Cabot Creamery, NH Mushroom Council and New England Patriots to develop our work plan and set up for the day. We also worked closely with our Food Service Director Craig and his assistant to help pull off a great day!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Students did surveys to see if it would benefit to have the Mushroom Burgers and Green Monster Smoothies on a regular food item menu. When the surveys weredone, it was recommended that we add the items to our regular meal planning.
