Kitchen renovation

Merci beaucoup to the Ulery family for the amazing kitchen renovation!!

The school's new chef, Emilia Ulery, and her family have transformed the school's kitchen! Husband Hal, an architect, drew the designs pictured above to maximize space and improve the kitchen's overall look and functioning. Emilia put her organizational skills into the planning, and the Ulery children pitched in to assist their parents with the installation, making it all come together. They came into the school over the weekend prior to Thanksgiving and by Monday morning, the kitchen was completely finished. The makeover includes a new counter top, many new commercial grade stainless steel shelving units, a cooking preparation table, a new microwave, a fully-equipped teacher coffee-break area, an upright freezer and many professional cooking tools and supplies from Emilia's former catering business- all generously donated to the school by the Ulery family. We are so very grateful for the skill and kindness put forth by the whole family. The result is nothing short of magnificent!! Please be sure to peek in to see the welcoming kitchen, and to thank Emilia for the mouth-watering smells permeating the air!
