Westlake High School’s Prostart class provides the student body and staff with a Thunder Bakery each Friday B-day during second lunch.
The students, under the direction of Mrs. Wilson, bake a variety of cookies as well as their famous giant cinnamon rolls.
Thunder Café is also a business run by the Prostart class. Each Wednesday B-day, the students provide a lunch for faculty and staff who order in advance. The lunch provides a main dish, side, dessert, and drink, all for only $5. Customers can even have their lunches delivered to them for only one extra dollar.
The profit earned through these businesses all go to the Prostart account, where they use the money to purchase class t-shirts and field trips. The students gain greater knowledge and experience by actually being out in the work field and seeing behind the scenes of other successful businesses.
