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.
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.
