SSAE Grant at Camden Elementary School
The Camden School District is a co-recipient of a Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) grant which facilitates after school modules for students in Grades K-8. All modules are taught by Camden faculty. Session 1, which starts in early January, is offered to students in grades 2-8. Session 2, which is offered from March to June, expands the age range of our program to students in grades K-8. Below is a description of what students are learning in Session 1.
Calling all young chefs! Students will explore the globe through cooking. Chefs will research different countries and their cultures, and keep track of their travels through passports, journals and plane tickets to each destination. Students will collaborate with fellow chefs as they create dishes from around the world!
