English Muffin Pizza Friday

From Dina Daleo:

Another fabulous Fun Friday cooking show down in class 100a and 100b! With the collaboration of the teachers in 100a, 100b, paraprofessional, and related service staff (speech, and occupational therapy) we were able to create English muffin pizza. Class 100a and 100b hunted in the garden this morning to harvest fresh herbs (thyme, oregano, parsley, and basil) to top our pizzas with. ENGLISH MUFFIN PIZZA was a HUGE hit today!!

Have a fabulous weekend,
