    Want to learn some easy, healthy meals to cook for yourself and your family?!

    Instructor: Rachelle Egerton  teaches 7th and 8th grade science at Murray Avenue Middle School.  She loves to cook and spends her time researching new recipes and trying new healthy flavors.  Mrs. Egerton believes that enabling students to learn healthy cooking skills will allow them to thrive independently and make good choices for their future.

    This is a great program for students to try something off the beaten path. This class will focus on Irish dance basics from foot work, steps, dance exercises and group dancing otherwise known as ceili dances.  It is a fun way to get up and move and can be a stepping stone to dance in the future. Irish dance is always fun when trying it with a friend but there is always an opportunity to make many new friends. While Irish dance has in recent years become a sport, I focus my class on learning, enjoying the process and dancing for the joy of dance. So why not give it a try?

    Instructor: Eilish Haley is an aide at Murray Avenue School and Irish dance is one of her biggest passions.  She started Irish dancing when she was 7 years old and has danced ever since and then became a teacher. While dancing is fun, it does take hard work but overall makes her confident.   Dance has always opened up amazing opportunities for her and has left herwith great experience with many more to come.
