Marathon High School News
Culinary Arts News
Marathon High School culinary students traveled to Orlando February 4-7, 2016, for the 16th ProStart Culinary competition. Four students competed in the Culinary Challenge where they had to demonstrate proficiency of a variety of knife cuts, deconstruct a chicken, then prepare an appetizer, entrée and dessert in an hour.  Those students were MHS juniors Kayla Prince, Chris Gaskill, Josiah Arce, and MHS senior Manoli Tsavaris. 
 
Three students competed in the Waiters Relay Challenge.  They had to correctly set three different place settings (American, French and Russian ) with all plates, cutlery and glasses and place 3 different decoratively folded napkins. Those students were MHS juniors Gregory Arce and Noah Ross and senior Kyle Freeman.  
 
Carl Stanton is in charge of the Culinary Program at MMHS and was very pleased with the effort exhibited by these students.  He said, “They have been practicing for months to show off their skills in this competition and are already talking about how to improve for next year.”   There were 49 Florida schools competing, with over 400 students.  There was 1.1 million dollars in scholarship money awarded from sponsors.  Major sponsors included Coca Cola, Cracker Barrel, Johnson and Wales University, Keiser University, The Art Institute and the Culinary Institute of America. 
 
Congrats Culinary Students!!

Marathon Students Read with Service Dogs
Marathon Middle High observed Florida's Celebrate Literacy program with a popular annual event, Reading has Gone to the [Service] Dogs. One of the goals of the event is to have student reading paired with the pleasant feelings one gets from petting a dog specially trained to offer comfort. Sponsored by the Library Learning Commons, the event has grown to be something the students look forward to each year.
 
This year eight dogs and their handlers participated and the program was offered to 100 students distributed throughout the school day. Students gained entry to the event by bringing original poems or stories to read to the dog. As follow-up, the students completed a survey to provide feed-back for future program planning. “This has been the highest scoring library program this year based on student responses,” media specialist Kathy Lancaster said. "Some students suggested this be a monthly event, and others asked if we could get enough dogs visiting so each person has his or her own dog for the class period." A number of students requested extra reading materials to support what they learned about service dogs and their training.

Testing criteria includes temperament and control, reactions to unusual situations, and reactions to children.
