The Chopped Challenge class went to Minneapolis on Monday to do a little shopping at the United Noodles Oriental Market. They brought back some tasty ingredients to make delicious desserts. So nummy! We had Mango Mochi, Dragon Fruit Jelly, and Pomelo Carrot Cake. They tasted as good as they looked!
Donna's Winter Survival PE class is turning snow piles into snow forts. Looks like a fun place to hide out from the cold and falling snow today. I hear there may be some hot cocoa available tomorrow in the Snowbucks wing of the ice fortress.
Yesterday, Miss B's advisory trekked up north to the Chippewa National Forest to visit the Lost Forty. Students got up close and personal with old growth red and white pines that are 300 to 400 years old.
