Freshly baked bread is everyone’s favorite and on Thursday, Dec. 6, Nyack Middle School 7th grade students will learn at a special assembly from 9 to 10 a.m., that with a little science, a little baking instruction and some good flour, they can bake delicious bread. The assembly and project is led by the King Arthur Flour Life Skills Bread Baking Program, and coordinated by Heather Lee, the school’s Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher.
As part of the project each student will receive to take home enough flour, and yeast for two loaves of bread, a dough scraper and a recipe booklet. If the students choose to donate one of the loaves they bake they are being asked to return one loaf of bread in the bag provided to school on Monday, Dec. 10. The Family and Consumer Science Department and the Middle School Family Resource Center will then donate the bread to a local organization in need.
This is a great hands-on learning experience done in the generous spirit of giving back to the community.
