    "I'm OK now that I'm at Cookie Cafe"

    "Wow, who baked those cookies, they're great"

    "We need Funfetti cookies every week"

    "Smells great in here, what's baking?"

    "Thanks for doing this for us! Makes us feels like someone cares about us".

    "I had a bad week with tests, but feel better now that I"m at Cookie Cafe".

    "I'm a senior and I have never been here before. How did I miss this?"

    "I'm a teacher here and this is great".

    "My teacher said to bring cookies for the whole class".

    "My mom sent those cookies, you have to try some".

    "Do you have a package for me? My mom said she sent something"

    "What parent group sponsored this week?"

    does anyone know what is going on?

    First let me say that my family 100% supports cookie cafe both financially and with boxes of cookies; however, can anyone tell us what is going on with cookie cafe?
    Does anybody know if this wonderful, thoughtful, generous and necessary program is in danger of being taken away from the mids?
    Obviously administration will ultimately have the final decision, but does anyone have any concrete information that they can share with the parents?

    There isn't anyone to take over for the Guests.

    Who is going to receive 4000 cookies every week (nothing store bought BTW, only homemade?

    Coordinate all the different parent clubs all over the country to bake?

    Make sure that a nice assortment of homemade cookies is there every week?

    Spend all day Wednesday purchasing supplies for Thursday?

    Purchase 20 gallons of milk weekly?

    Come at 7 a.m. on Thursday to unpack 4000 cookies for 4 hours?

    Set up the coffee, lemonade, hot chocolate, tea?

    Supervise the mids who want to bake during CC?

    Purchase the flour, eggs, vanilla, baking soda, chocolate chips, nuts, baking powder, sugar to bake every week?

    Take home and wash all the tablecloths?

    Keep supplies for baking by the mids during the week, having mids keep the kitchen always clean?

    Ask mids what their favorite cookies are and have them there at CC the next week?

    Stay until 5 pm every Thursday and after if some stragglers come in from a study session, late class or sport practice.

    Have nice music playing?

    Anyone out there want to do this every week for 10 months a year?

    I guess nmlcfp will take over since she/he is so positive that Cookie Cafe wills stay around if the Guest are asked to leave. They (the Guest) have not been able to find anyone to take over and they have asked many parents and people. Let's keep hope alive.

    I heard through the parent's association that they are working with the administration to keep the Guests around. That sounded positive to me. But I guess anything can happen.

    No decision has been made

    As one who is very much involved, I can tell you that there has been no notification or reason to believe that everything will be fine with Cooke Cafe.

    I wish you all lived close by !!

    Yesterday, towards the end of Cookie Cafe I asked the mids if any of them wanted to make pizza from scratch and got a very enthusiastic group of mostly fellows. You would have loved it.

    Are you sure that I can I make pizza from scratch?
    What is the pizza stone for?
    What do you mean yeast has to hydrate in "baby bath temperature? I never babysat before.
    You mean that I am to punch my aggressions out on the dough as I knead?
    This is so much fun, and easy !!
    Wait until I go home and show my Mom how to make pizza
    This is the most beautiful pizza I have ever seen
    I am so excited, I can hardly wait to taste my pizza
    What is a pizza peel, and how can I get my pizza out of the oven?
    Can I make a three cheese pie?
    We just made 12 pizza pies, how much would that cost if we ordered them?
    We can make pizza any time we want, this is great
    This tastes delicious, and the crust is so crisp.

    Don't you wish you lived nearby and could enjoy scenes like that? Last week it was teaching them how to make sushi, much to their surprise. Several said they were going to open up sushi restaurants they got so excited.

    It is fun working with these students. Thanks for working hard to produce such a great group of students.
