  • Thankful for gardens!

    Posted by Suzanne Walker on 11/22/2022

    Well... it's cold out there...but at Eisenhower High School, we are thankful for the summer garden grown by Mr. Roderick Gregg's Ag Science students last summer.  After the garden harvest, the produce was given to Mrs. Suzanne Walker's Food Science students.  From Zucchini to Tomatoes to Peppers to Carrots to Sunflower Seeds are just some of the produce and food that was grown by the IKE Agriculture Science students.  Recently, the Agriculture Science program got a new name and sign... "The Farm".

    Here is a recipe for Green Salsa Verde that IKE Food Science Students made with the green tomatoes picked from the garden grown by IKE Ag Science students.  Try this recipe when you have lots of green tomatoes on hand!

  • Yakima School District Partners with #1 in Innovation, Arizona State University, to Build Creative College Pathways

    Yakima School District (YSD) is one of three school districts across the country partnering with Arizona State University (ASU) on a pilot program to increase access to college-level courses in high schools.
    ASU offers a series of Universal Learner Courses (ULCs), where students can earn college credits at an accessible cost. These credits can then be applied to associate or undergraduate degrees at a college or university of the students’ choice, including ASU.
    Nearly 75 ninth grade students at Eisenhower and AC Davis High School are currently enrolled in an ASU ULC online health class. Students take this class as part of their six-period day schedule and are supported in the classroom by YSD-certified teachers. Next semester, students will have the opportunity to take a biology class with a college credit option.
    We are excited about this partnership that provides creative pathways for students to complete a postsecondary degree.
