Many smiles and yummy desserts were brought into the homes of Westhampton Beach students and staff as Westhampton Beach Middle School hosted its first Thursday Night Live virtual lesson with family and consumer science teacher Kathleen Ciancio on May 7.

During the Zoom session, 103 attendees followed along with Ciancio to bake banana bread or muffins with chocolate chips. The lesson tied into the school’s seventh grade nutrition unit.

To ensure that all participants had what they needed to bake the dessert, the school offered the ingredients during its regular lunch pickups as part of its COVID-19 lunch program.

“It was a hit,” said Principal Charisse Miller. “I am so proud of my staff and the students.”

The school plans to continue offering a variety of learning opportunities through the Thursday Night Live program. Students and families can participate in the next session, “Secrets of the Stones: Our Local History,” on May 15.
