It was a great way to start the morning thanks to culinary students.

The culinary department was so kind to provide this breakfast for the staff. The students had on their chef apron, making them look very professional. Although some students did try/want to buy some food from them, they couldn’t because it was a breakfast for the teachers only. 

“It’s a fundraiser for the culinary department, and also to provide students with hand on opportunities in hospitality, food service, and production,” Mrs. Del Monaco & Ms. Rinehart said. Teachers from the culinary department.  

Some teachers have a breakfast spot already, where they like to buy their breakfast on their way to work. Others like to try new things.  

“I picked up a scone, it was better than Starbucks and I went back for two more and said they were for two teachers, but only one was. It was delicious, it really was,” Mr. Frankfother said.  

There is always room to try new things, that’s the most exciting part. The students who helped in any way for this teacher breakfast were so excited to try this new thing out. 

“The preparations of the food were a little difficult but it’s worth it at the end because it was an enjoyable experience,” senior Naven Valdez said.  

There are people who enjoy doing kind things for others.  

“The morning café was a fun and exciting event, not only did it help interact with people and adults but gave me experience on dealing with customers,” senior Alexander Ornelas said.

    This is a good idea but this should be open to students as well not just staff. Many students including myself don’t eat breakfast because sometimes it can be out of our way. If there was actual breakfast like the options on the menu provided for the staff. 100% students would buy the breakfast providing more money for the school, clubs…etc

    These event help students become more confident in their cooking skills because it provides encouragement by putting out their cooking and selling it to the staff and they can also receive critique from them.

    As being a former participant of the grab n’ go it is a good idea to have this available for teachers as well as students. In no way would this compete with the breakfast in our lunchroom it’ll just be an extra food source for students to get something freshly made.

    I honestly think that this new event should be available for anyone in the school. It would really come in handy since some students dont have enough time in the morning to eat anything. This is also a way for the cooks to receive feedback on what is good and what is not.

    I think this was a great idea because all the breakfast places are packed in the mornings. On late starts i always go get some coffee in the morning but every time i go to dunkin donuts there’s a lot of other people there too and if i wait i would be late but having a fast way to get your coffee and donuts helps a lot.

    This breakfast event is a really good idea but I feel as if it would’ve been better if it was open to students as well. Sometimes I don’t have enough time to eat something at home and so I go to the lunchroom and I end up not getting much because the breakfast served here isn’t the best. I also think that they could’ve raised more money if it was open to students.
