Students mix bread ingredients in Dining Hall (Courtesy/ Carolina M.)
To further honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 30 of our upper school students prepared 920 rolls from scratch in a Bake for Good event, a national outreach program sponsored by King Arthur’s Baking Company, which encourages students to bake and share bread with others. After LS teacher Ms. Ramsey introduced the Bake for Good event to fourth graders two years ago, our Service Board incorporated a day of breadmaking on the MLK holiday. All baked items were donated to Faith Mission.
Service Board and this year’s Latin Club leaders added the Bake for Good event to our Project Linus activities which coincided with the National Day of Service. Students embellished 100 squares created by Lower School teacher, Sarah Hansen to be used in 15 blankets that will be donated to Central Ohio residents.
Project Linus also has a national presence, dedicated to local children in need. More than 80,000 volunteers nationwide supply and deliver hand-made blankets to comfort children.
“The best part of this Day of Service was the contribution and cooperation of all of the attendees and of course, Ms. Bening. Plus, we made all the recycling runs!” -Milana B.
