More than a dozen students learned several math, literacy, collaboration and social skills during the preparation of the traditional holiday meal.

The DMK students worked with their teachers to read recipes, measure ingredients and cook squash, mashed potatoes, rolls, stuffing and gravy.

One of the teachers cooked a turkey.

The high school students baked desserts and enjoyed the traditional meal with the middle schoolers and several guests, including DMK Principal Shawn Morgan, Hannibal Central School District Assistant Superintendent for Teaching, Learning and Accountability Dee Froio, Hannibal Central School District Superintendent Christopher Staats and DMK Assistant Principal Chris Tynan, among several staff members.

The Life Skills classes provide various hands-on learning opportunities for students to develop and enhance workplace and communication skills while taking on several responsibilities.
