Students at NUHS can enroll in several different food classes throughout their high school career. But first, students must take basic foods as a pre-requisite before taking any other elective foods class.

There are many classes that students can choose from including Pastry and Design and International Foods, for example. “Not enough people signed up for International Foods first and second semester, therefore we couldn’t offer it as a class,” Ms. Schneider said.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Ms. Schneider’s Advanced Foods and Basic Foods classes made heart-shaped rice krispie treats. “Even though this was a simple food lab, it was a fun lab because my lab group chose to hand them out to teachers to spread love and the teachers seemed to enjoy them,” said junior Morgan Hulke.

In all of Ms. Schneider’s FACS classes, she does her best to tie holiday-themed recipes and/or activities into her lesson plans. “I encourage everyone to take at least one foods class throughout their high school career. You get to try new foods and recipes that you may never have even heard of before,” said Tallak Rakowski.
