When the economic crisis hit America, people knew it wouldn’t be long before classrooms would be feeling the heat too. Everyone knew that at some point it would hit Coppell High School as well. That time has come.

Nutrition and Food Science is a class where students get to learn about cooking, preparation of cooking, and even get science credits for it.

But now, the popular cooking class will be taking a slightly different approach on “nutrition”.

“The new class is going to be called Lifetime Nutrition and Wellness,” said Nutrition and Food Science teacher Ms. Richards. “There will be no more food preparation.”

The class will focus  more and the well-being of a person as a whole. The class will consist of smaller classes, more group projects which focus on the overall wellness of a person.

“It’s a shame that it’s going to be different,” said sophomore Braden Chausse. “I always thought the idea of a class where you actually cook would be pretty cool.”

With the Nutrition and Food Science class being changed coming next year, it makes people wonder what the future of some of their favorite classes are.
