Students have had the opportunity to cook various healthy foods and snacks such as banana chips, apple chips, vegetable soup, whole wheat pizza, and much more through the Healthy Schools Program that Mr. Porcelli spearheads.

This year, the school was given a $1000 grant for its Healthy Eating Programs sponsored by Metro’s Green Apple School Program.
