The Franklin-McKinley School District places a high priority on the health & well-being of students. Research indicates, when students receive regular health checkups, eat healthy, and engage in 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity each day, they are better prepared for the academic rigor of the classroom environment.

On April 13th, we will be hosting our annual “Future Chefs” competition for elementary school students at Shirakawa School, 665 Wool Creek Dr. The participants will be 3rd - 5th grade students. Students will submit recipes for their favorite healthy comfort food dishes. The finalists will be chosen as the best from all submissions to compete in the live event.
Each school office site will receive entry forms. Please put them in the teacher’s boxes for distribution. Entry forms must be given to the cafeteria staff by April 3rd. After all recipes are reviewed by our committee, parents and students will be notified.
The event will start at 3:00 pm and end at 5:00 pm. The student contestants are expected to arrive at Shirakawa cafeteria by 2:45 p.m. Student’s stations will be setup and ready for them to start their dish. We will have volunteers to assist them.
We ask that you encourage every staff member to come out and support the students in this wonderful competition. This gives our students the opportunity to showcase their culinary skills while having lots of fun at the same time!
You’re invited to be a part of another successful and fun filled event. Please give me a call, if you have any questions. Also, please see link below for Entry Form.
