Bryan and Will along with several enthusiastic kindergartners and first graders visited the Larz Anderson Auto Museum (no relation to Lars Anderson) in Brookline. During the guided tour, children saw a steam car with two bodies (one for winter and one for summer), an early example of an electric charger, a 1905 car that the Andersons did not drive because they were worried children of Brookline would throw rocks at it for being so ugly, and a 1906 car that was equipped with a toilet.
Children who participated in our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser received their prizes from the American Heart Association today.
Second and third graders who have been participating in Colin’s Cooking Compendium Class were treated to a special field trip to La Morra in Brookline Village on Monday. Colin, who used to be a line cook at this restaurant, gave an in depth tour as he explained all the different tasks he needed to do as a cook. He showed children areas of the restaurant that most of us never get to see, including the pastry kitchen, the downstairs prep area with the giant walk-in fridge, and the main kitchen,
Employees of La Morra were very generous with their time as they spoke to our students and allowed us to watch as they prepared for dinner service. Stephanie, the manager/hostess, answered several questions about her job and life in a restaurant. Then, Emily, the chef de cuisine, let children watch as she was preparing squid to be marinated overnight.
Before, students left, La Morra treated children to chocolate pudding with biscotti. Thank you to La Morra for being so friendly and generous with their time and to the students for being so enthusiastic and attentive.
Once again BASCP had a successful Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser to support the American Heart Association. 57 students gathered donations and 112 ducks were handed out for participation. Additionally, all BASCP students enjoyed the 2 day jump-a-thon and other heart healthy activities throughout the month, including Walk for Heart Field Trips, Running Club, and, of course, plenty of jump rope activities.
Thank you again for your support. Please enjoy the posters children made during our jump-a-thon.
