Our district was challenged to complete the Kids Teaching Kids 21-day snack challenge. Our Youth Advisory Council students decided to take this event and make it special for our students. Each student in the school would receive a cookbook and would register online to complete the challenge. After registering, the 21-day challenge would begin. To encourage kids to make healthy snacks out of the cookbook, the students along with our Child Nutrition Department chose 4 snacks to serve. The snacks were then made by the Youth Advisory Council kids and served to all of our students during the lunch period on Thursdays. The final Thursday we had a drawing for five students to be able to cook with the principal. They cooked the recipe in the book that our Rockwall High School students had published and served it to our student body. The cooking students received special aprons and enjoyed their cooking lessons in our school cafeteria.
