Presidential Volunteer Service Award Recipient
The Presidential Volunteer Service Award is a nationally recognized award given to outstanding individuals who dedicate considerable time over the course of a year to help their communities.
Rising 10th grader Kendall White is the first Breck recipient to receive this award. She spent over 100 hours volunteering in many different ways and has qualified for the Gold Presidential Volunteer Service Award. Congratulations to Kendall for all her contributions to the greater community this year AND for being our school’s inaugural recipient!
On Wednesday morning, Upper School students listened to Ugandan climate justice advocate Evelyn Acham.
MS science students collaborated on a climate change research project earlier this year. Their teacher, Ms. Alexander, created a scenario for her students that opened up opportunities for deep conversations about climate justice and helped them understand the complicated nature of negotiating resolutions while also internalizing the need for immediate action to mitigate its impact.
This year, the Breck Math League Team took second in Class 1A at the 2021 Minnesota State High School Mathematics League State Tournament. In a year of virtual practices, meets, and tournaments that literally crossed the International Date Line, the team stuck together and retained their second-place standing for a second year.
