Meg Hunter-Kilmer Visits Little Flower Catholic School

Meg Hunter Kilmer Visits Little Flower Catholic School

Author and speaker, Meg Hunter-Kilmer, was in Mobile recently and was gracious enough to come to Little Flower Catholic School not once, but TWICE to speak with our students. She focused on Saints and how they are sometimes surprisingly like us (not always quiet and “holy-holy”). She has written 2 books about Saints and left a few for our students to enjoy. We are grateful for her presence and her presents (the books).

Barton Academy Holds Book Tasting

Barton Academy Holds Book Tasting

The Barton Academy School for Advanced World Studies recently held a “Book Tasting” event created and hosted by the Media Specialist, Mary Alice Pouliot, and made possible by the excellent partnership with Head Chef Gabi Wilson and her Bishop State culinary arts students, as well as Chef Rachel Baxter and her W.P. Davidson high school culinary arts students. There were new books to sample (students read selected passages from them off the different room “menus”) as well as an appetizer, entrée, and a dessert sample, all from the 1930’s, which matched the time and setting of the books introduced. A fiction and non-fiction text were introduced in each space as well as a food item. All of the books also tied in with the different grade level’s Project Based Learning essential questions and themes for the quarter. It was a delicious way to connect great learning, be introduced to new literature, foster a love of reading, and consider the culinary arts pathway as one that would ignite the students’ entrepreneurial spirits as well as their passion for food (from preparation and flavoring, to service, to food displays and food art).
