First Day of School
Breck welcomed students in grades preschool through grade 12 back to campus on August 27 for the first day of school.
Students participated in a variety of activities, met their teachers, and re-acquainted themselves with their peers.
Upper School students participated in a number of events both on and off campus. Students in grade 9 worked together during their Iron Chef competition, crafting a meal using unique ingredients to serve to the members of their group as well as the judges. Congratulations to the students in Mr. Eichten's advisory for winning the competition! Photos from Iron Chef can be found here.
Sophomores traveled to the Crow-Hassan State Park Reserve to collect prairie seeds in order to help restore native prairie grasses. They then spent the afternoon eating lunch and enjoying the weather at Elm Creek Park.
Juniors spent the morning at Feed My Starving Children packing nutritious meals for hungry children around the world. Following their time there, juniors spent the afternoon bowling.
Seniors officially started their year with the grade 12 overnight on August 23-24. As they start the year as the leaders of the student population, the senior overnight incorporated leadership and team-building activities to prepare for the year ahead. Photos from the overnight can be found here.
Congratulations to Emre Adabag, Margaret Broyles, Andrew Cheng, James Clinton, Samantha Detor, Gunnar Evenstad, Ekemini Jones, Grace Medeiros, Sam Schoenecker, Dylan Vincent, and Niels Wu, who were named National Merit Semifinalists by the College Board.
Beth Gaffga returns to Breck as our new Middle School English Teacher.
