Culinary Arts Pastry War!

On Friday, the culinary classes had a Pastry War. Students had to produce a creative pastry worthy of a professional display in a bakery.

Students made their pastry dough from scratch and used their imagination and tea collaboration skills to make an original creation.

Fillings included blueberry, cherries, strawberries, chocolate chips, cream cheese and nutella. Congratulations to the winners in each class.

Lock Up Your Skateboards Please! Students, did you know we have a “skateboard rack” on campus? You should not be carrying your skateboard throughout the day. Please lock your skateboard in the skateboard rack or make arrangements to leave it in a classroom.

Learner Profile Trait for November ~ Caring

Big picture

Barry Goldwater is an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. As such we aspire to fulfill the traits embodied in the Learner Profile. Each month we will highlight and celebrate one of these traits.

The Learner Profile trait for November is Caring. We show empathy, compassion and respect. We have a commitment to service, and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us.

The Learner Profile Quote of the Day is:

“When autumn darkness falls, what we will remember are the small acts of kindness: a cake, a hug, an invitation to talk, and every single rose. These are all expressions of a nation coming together and caring about its people.”

Jens Stoltenber
