Edith E. Mackrille Elementary School students watched a cooking demo given by school district Food Services Director Meg Kingston in the cafeteria this week to see how basil and tomatoes from the school's teaching garden could be used in the kitchen to make pesto and pasta sauce. Students then got to sample the results. The teaching garden was installed two years ago at Mackrille through a grant.

college visits

The West Haven High School Counseling Department brought 35 students to visit six colleges and universities at the end of September for its annual Campus Connection college visit overnight trip. Students visited Brown University, Rhode Island College, Salve Regina University, University of Massachusetts – Lowell, Merrimack College and Endicott College. They had an opportunity to experience first-hand what colleges had to offer and received campus tours and attended information sessions. A group of WHHS students also visited the University of Connecticut today. Students interested in further college visit opportunities should be on the lookout for upcoming events on Naviance.
