Students at Ellisville Elementary put their baking skills to the test and donated their creations to two local food pantries.
The students were learning, baking and sharing through the King Arthur Flour Bake for Good Program.
“The students were proud of themselves for baking a loaf of bread, but also because they helped a family in need,” said fifth-grade teacher Cheryl Hunn.
Students used math, science and reading skills to create two loaves of delicious bread – one to keep and one to share.
They also collected 76 loaves of bread which will be donated to Circle Of Concern and Feed My People, said Rockwood Partners in Education (PIE) facilitator Beth Ruprecht.
The project was in conjunction with PIE, whose facilitators partner with volunteers willing to share their expertise or special talents with students. This community connection enhances curriculum, making learning more meaningful and relevant for students.
