Food drive of spooky proportions
Breck School students participated in their largest food donation drive of the year throughout the week of Halloween, collecting more than 11,000 lbs of non-perishable food items for local non-profits. More than 630 students participated in all three divisions.
The students will bring the food to the Division of Indian Work and CEAP Food Shelf in Brooklyn Park. The Sheridan Story received more than 3,000 lbs of food earlier this week.
Breck Scares Hunger is an annual event where students collect non-perishable food items throughout the week of Halloween.
At Breck, students of all ages have the opportunity to lead clubs, join committees working on special initiatives, and be a member of student councils. Each opportunity offers students a great deal of influence on shaping the culture and climate of the school but also involves a significant amount of risk as being a leader among their peers.
Breck is pleased to announce that this year’s Athena Award winner is senior Saylor Hawkins. Saylor has been a three-sport athlete each year since she was in seventh grade and this year she is playing four sports.
The 2019 Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards were recently announced by the Art Educators of Minnesota. Breck students were honored with 76 awards, including Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention.
