If food is being served at SHHS and it’s delicious, ProStart’s probably involved. Being asked to be a faculty judge for ProStart Competitions is one of the best deals at our school.
The ProStart course offered at Salem Hills is designed to train students for career opportunities in the Food Service/Culinary Arts and the Hospitality Management Industry. Students learn to use and maintain commercial food service equipment, perform quantity food preparation, and establish their own food service business. Students are required to wear chef coats/ professional restaurant staff dress every day. Students will take the Manager ServeSafe test next term, which qualifies them to manage a restaurant for up to 3 years.
Upcoming ProStart highlights include:
- Creating a meal of the month for FCCLA- once a month all club members (usually 50-60) are invited to eat a meal catered by ProStart.
- Catering Teacher Cafe- Once a month a class restaurant will be available to teachers during lunch. The menus are planned by the students.
- Competing with other schools on the Competition Team- Groups will compete 2nd semester in Regional competition. We are hoping to make it to State competition again this year. Last year was the first time we made it to state.
- Creating a special "Skyhawk Treat" for the big tailgate party next weekend.
