Connally Culinary Hosts 26th Annual Christmas Tea

The Connally High School Culinary Arts program hosted the 26th annual CHS Christmas Tea on Thursday, December 1.

The students, comprised of sophomores, juniors and seniors in the program, cooked and served over 350 meals to CHS staff, district administration staff, board members, and community partners. Delicious food ranging from Braised Roast Beef, Succotash Salad, Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Sweet Potato Casserole and more were served, topped off with a choice of five different desserts.

The students in the program cater this annual event and don’t only learn food preparation & food service skills, but customer service skills as well. The Family & Consumer Sciences department did a wonderful job decorating the kitchen and dining areas in Grinch-themed Christmas décor.

The Culinary Arts program of study is housed at Connally High School and boasts over 375 students in that CTE pathway; more information about the Culinary program, and all other CTE programs of study, can be found on our website at
