Breck promotes various service opportunities going on at the school. Check back often as this page will be updated regularly.
Breck Tradition: The Angel Tree
Breck Middle School has adopted the families from Little Earth Baby's Space, one of our service partners. This local organization needs help providing holiday presents for children and adults. An Angel Tree will be in the Middle School Library decorated with ornaments representing individual wish lists. The Breck community is invited to participate by choosing an ornament and shopping for gifts — sometimes for an entire family.
Lower and Middle School students need a signed permission slip to choose an ornament. Permission slips are available here and in the MS Library.
All presents should be wrapped and returned to the Middle School Library by Tuesday, December 13.
Angel Tree questions should be directed to Angie Kritta.
WANTED: Winter Wear!!!
The Lower School is collecting new and gently-used winter clothing for families experiencing homelessness. Specifically, we're looking for coats, jackets, boots and snow pants. Donations may be brought to individual classrooms or to the Service Shelf (located near Gym C). Drive runs through December 14. Thanks! Questions should be directed to Nan Zosel.
