GLENMOOR RETIREMENT RESORT OPENS THEIR DOORS FOR OLJH 6TH GRADE HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM STUDENTS!
On April 29th, Mrs. Ackerman's students traveled to St. Augustine, Florida to experience Hospitality and Tourism first-hand! The award winning Glenmoor Retirement Resort welcomed over 100 students and chaperones for the day.
The students rotated to six different activities, which included Culinary Operations, Event Planning, Housekeeping, Dining Room Coordination, Finance, and Member expectations. The staff and residents/members were extremely delightful and pleasant. One resident/member jokingly commented to a group of students, “We will see you guys in about 60 years!” This field trip exceeded even a bunch of middle school student’s expectations…which is no easy task!
