The Pro-Start (culinary) class received a demonstration from Mr. Gustavo Marquez, who is also an Advisory committee member for this class.    Mr. Marquez is the owner of Las Brisas in Malden and 7 other restaurants in the surrounding area.  His son Cesar attends New Madrid Technical Skills Center in conjunction with Risco.  Mr. Marquez provided a demonstration on how to make tacos and fajitas.  He provided the students with a look into his past growing up in Mexico and how his determination and faith allowed him to build his business which has over 100 employees.  He discussed customer service and how building your clientele is very important in a small business.  The students greatly enjoyed the demonstration and taste testing.  We greatly appreciate Mr. Marquez time and support for our school.  THANK YOU!!!

Health Science Dissection

The health science students learning about anatomy get to dissect cow eyes.  A cow eye is very similar to the eye of a human. By dissecting and examining the anatomy of a preserved cow eye, you can learn how your own eye forms images of the world and sends these images to your brain. This dissection allows the students to get an idea of what the eye looks like inside.

Friday afternoon New Madrid Elementary honored  veterans with a nice lunch. New Madrid Elementary PTO and staff donated various dishes and desserts and welcomed veterans to come eat for lunch. New Madrid Elementary students colored posters, hung drawings, and made cards for those veterans that were in attendance. We are extremely thankful for each and every veterans service to our country and look forward to providing lunch for them again next year!
