Community Partnerships Reimagined: Interest to Action
As COVID has changed the way Upper School students spend their Wednesday Community Partnership time, Breck has offered "Interest to Action" as an alternative. In Lower School, these projects will be group based, but Middle and Upper School students can create individual projects that are service-based. We've included two Interest to Action projects where the students or groups are looking for community involvement.
Breck Community Recipe SubmissionS
Nicole Blake '22 is hoping to create a cookbook that includes recipes from around the Breck community, along with some traditional Navajo recipes. Nicole says, "The Navajo Nation has been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic, and my hope is for the profit of my cookbook sales to go towards the Navajo Nation. I was part of a project last May in my APUSH class and I hope to continue to foster this connection with the Navajo reservation." She's collecting recipes from all Breck constituencies and would love submissions from Breck families.

La Créche | early childhood center in North Minneapolis
Alison Mitchell '23 and Kendall White '23 have created an Interest to Action group that is collecting books and socks for La Créche, an early childhood center in North Minneapolis.
We're collecting these items now until February 24. We ask that participants bring in gently-used books suitable for 1- to 6-year-olds and new socks that will fit toddlers. We are also encouraging people to include a short and simple note that could be given to the kids and teachers at La Créche.
Here's where donations can be dropped off:
Upper School students | Look for donation baskets outside their English classroom
Lower School and Middle School students | Check with the LS Office or MS Office for donation locations.
