Dear Parent of {Student Name},

Today was a great day! Thank you for sharing {Student Name} with us this week!
The students enrolled in Food Science this week had the opportunity to get to know their counselor, their classmates, and what they will be learning. After introductions, students explored viscosity, made homemade pasta and learned about crickets as a food source. While there definitely was summer weather, we made good use of the extensive indoor facilities and air conditioning.

Our team was busy supporting the students, ensuring everyone was comfortable, and taking pictures that you can view on our Facebook page. If you haven't already, like our page and follow us to view pictures and announcements from the week.
As always, if you have any questions or feedback, I'm always available at
We look forward to seeing {Student Name} tomorrow!
Have a great week!
