Thursdays, Jan. 13 - Feb. 17, $130 (6 weeks), Ceramics Room, Instructor: Kids Test Kitchen Staff
Kids’ Test Kitchen is on a mission to get young eaters cooking, tasting, and thinking about healthy ingredients!
Each class presents students with an opportunity to explore new or familiar foods in their raw, unmanipulated
state. Then, working as a team, we’ll slice, dice, peel, measure, and cook until we’ve prepared the finished dish.
Your aspiring chef will receive the main ingredient, or a sample of the finished dish, and the recipe so that they
can show off what they’ve learned! Even the most reluctant eaters enjoy KTK, where participation is expected,
but tasting is always optional. Recipes for this session include artichokes, winter comfort stew, scratch pasta,
nourishing nachos, stuffed peppers, and polenta with fruit salsa! Please disclose any food allergies or dietary
restrictions when you register.

Pickleball Skill Levels
Players should self-select their appropriate level of play. (See Skill-Level Ratings below.) If you find you’re winning
consistently you should move up. If you’re being outplayed, losing consistently, you should move down. Pickleball
is more fun and enjoyable when teams pair off against teams of near-equal abilities. If you want to improve your
game against better players, find an experienced partner willing to help you get better through play.
Novice to intermediate players looking
for a fun, relaxed game. Courtesy and
sportsmanship make any sport fun.
Experienced and skilled players looking
for a higher-level of competition.
Open to all players. Pickleball is a social
game. Mixed times are intended for
players to “mix it up” and get to know
one another. Players are encouraged to
“play up” or “play down” to help
develop better players at every level.
stopping the spread of covid-19
Burlington Parks & Recreation Department requires participants who have not
completed their vaccination, who cannot be vaccinated and those who are not eligible
for vaccination, including children less than 12 years of age to wear masks while
participating in indoor programs (unless they are eligible for an exception under the
governor’s current mask order). Instructors of youth programs, regardless of vaccination
status, are also required to wear masks throughout their indoor program. We strongly
recommend that if your child is under 5 years old and can safely and appropriately wear,
remove and handle a face mask to wear one while at their indoor program. Participants
who are eligible to be vaccinated, but are not vaccinated, must continue to wear masks
and remain physically distant (6 feet) while participating in indoor programs. We will
continue to monitor the governor's guidance and make changes to our policy as
required. If new guidance is released programs will be adjusted accordingly.
Any programs that occur within a Burlington Public School facility will require
participants to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.
Please understand procedures in programs regarding COVID-19 are subject to change.
Burlington Parks and Recreation will follow new guidance if it is released. We appreciate
the community's flexibility during this time.
