On April 11th Carle students and staff took a trip to Woodland Community College. Once at the college students received tours of the college led by Bruno Sabatier, Ingrid Larsen, and Pamela Bordisso. During this tour of the Woodland campus students visited the Cadaver lab/ Biology lab, School store, Library, daycare and finally the culinary program led by the wonderful Chef Robert Cabreros who led the students through his amazing culinary class. Chef Robert and his culinary staff also held a lunch for the Carle students. At this lunch Chef Roberts culinary team prepared a variety of things including: Penne Pasta with house made sausage, Italian chopped salad, and a pizza bar with a wide variety of toppings. Sherry Hoeckendorf a Carle staff member said “I enjoyed visiting the bio lab and seeing the cadavers, and also visiting the library”. She added, “the food was amazing”. Alan Siegel a teacher at Carle said “I’m always so impressed by how far these students and teachers at Woodland go for us at Carle and what they do for us and I’m so happy to have the opportunity to expose kids to this local college” Teagan Tompioner a student at Carle said “it was really cool, we learned a lot about the campus and really enjoyed the amazing food prepared by the culinary program” and Ray Azevedo said “overall I feel less intimidated by college life and felt it was very beneficial to experience adult education.” Bassett added he wishes we had more time. Alan Siegel and the students of the S.B.E. program are designing some thank you presents for the effort the wonderful group of people put into educate the kids of Carle about Woodland and what the college has to offer. We at Carle cannot thank you enough.

About two weeks ago Carle held a Cardboard boxcar race (cars made out of cardboard boxes) in which the students raced around the track on the field. In this competition, each teacher had an advisory class as their “pit crew” and the task of this “pit crew” is to make sure the person running has water, (fuel) clean shoes, (tires) and to wipe their forehead (clean their windshield). Angie Siegel’s advisory class won the race. After the students had a race the teachers then raced. The winner of the race was Lance though Maes came in a close second.
