International Night at Breck

Join students, parents, and colleagues as we celebrate the richness of cultures at Breck on Tuesday, March 6 from 5:30-7:30pm in the Salas Commons/US Dining Room. This is also perfect timing with your child working on their country report (some of the countries represented at International Night are currently being researched in Room 16!).

Presentations and great food are part of the festivities!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you and your loved ones have had a wonderful day! 

Today was a fun one for students in Room 16! We had fun exchanging and opening up valentines, decorating cookies, crafting and enjoying the festive energy in the air. Classroom fun was followed by a grade-wide game of BINGO in the 1/2 Commons in the afternoon. The energy was high and as each number was about to be announced, a hush went over the Commons, hoping that that number would get them one step closer to BINGO! Several from our class won a prize out of the prize bucket. 

Here are the pictures I took at the valentines exchange & BINGO, enjoy!

A Note from Mrs. Z

Think PINK!  Did you know that we fund student led Philanthropy Projects solely through the collection of BOXTOPS?  We redeem them once a year.  
If you have been collecting them please send them to school by Feb. 14.  

Our Kitchen Utensil Bouquet Drive was a grand success.  Thank you to all who participated.  We will deliver nearly 150 "bouquets" to Bridging, an organization devoted to ending homelessness.  

Thank you to the Massey, Ettawgeshik, and Mehta families for volunteering on "Soup-er Bowl Sunday."  The Breck team served up a delicious meal of walleye and wild rice from the White Earth and Red Lake Nations.  If your family would like to participate in this "radical hospitality" First Nations Kitchen offers a community meal every Sunday at All Saints Church in south Minneapolis.
