We currently are at a Silver Award Level, and are working to complete three pathways to reach our goal. Our focus this year will be on energy, biodiversity, and schoolyard habitats. This club will be open to students from Kinder through 5th Grade and meetings will take place after school. (Students 3rd grade and under need to be accompanied by an adult.) Meetings will be held once a month on Wednesdays.  If your child is attending, please make arrangements to pick them up outside of school at this time or indicate if they will be walking/riding home.  Contact jennifer.sladek@austinisd.org for more information.

Sticky Fingers Cooking: https://stickyfingerscooking.com/school-programs/texas/boone-elementary-...
Sticky Fingers Cooking classes and camps benefit both the students who participate and the community as a whole in a few ways:

  • By providing comprehensive education and inspiration directly related to the role of real foods, cooking, and nutrition in promoting health and wellness.
  • By being interdisciplinary—students practice cooking skills while learning cultural, nutritional, linguistic, and geographical information about foods from around the world. Students also practice math skills, seeing scientific concepts at work, and developing an environmental awareness of where real food comes from.
  • By promoting transferable skills that are easily replicated at home through take home recipes, application of newly learned cooking skills, as well as enthusiasm and an expanded palate for new foods.
  • Lastly, by imparting students with a sense of pride in their hard work and tasty creations!

Participating in Sticky Fingers Cooking classes helps build independence, persistence, and confidence in students as they work to create meals, skills which benefit students both in the classroom and at home.
