We had 2 fun student recognition events this week. On Wednesday, Sodexo held the 3rd annual Future Chef Contest at Maple School. There were 3 finalists from Wescott and 5 finalists from Willowbrook competing. Supt. Wegley, Principal Brown, and I judged the food entries on several factors including: Plate presentation, kid-friendly preparation, taste, originality, and healthy ingredients.
Our very own, Victoria Caputa, was the 1st place winner. She offered a truly original “S’more Crepes”. I was so proud of all the contestants. This is such a fun event.
On Thursday, Willowbrook and Wescott were represented at the Illinois Principal Association’s North Cook Region Student Recognition Breakfast at the Metropolis Theater in Arlington Heights. Each year, my professional association allows members to bring one student from the exiting grade level for recognition. With help from the 4th and 5th grade teachers, I selected Nathan Kuncheria. The keynote speaker was Ricardo Castro, Illinois Teacher of the Year.
