Bake for Good Kids Program

This Thursday, November 15, 2018, Lafayette School students will participate in the Bake for Good Kids Program (BFGK), and learn that math, science, reading, and baking know-how add up to delicious bread! This week your child will come home with two bags of King Arthur flour, a BFGK recipe booklet, Red Star yeast, a King Arthur Flour dough scraper, a bread donation bag and twist tie, and newly-learned bread baking skills. With your support, and perhaps a little guidance, we hope they will bake with confidence. (As your new baker will tell you, it takes about 3½ hours!)


On Monday, November 19, 2018, please return one loaf of bread in the bag provided to the school lobby. The bread will be donated to the Eva’s Kitchen. You and your baker keep the other delicious loaf (or cinnamon rolls or pizza or dinner rolls) to enjoy! To learn more about Bake for Good Kids or to watch the free online BFGK video presentation, please visit the website at kingarthurflour.com/bakeforgoodkids. We hope you enjoy the pleasures of homemade bread!

Help Distribute King Arthur Supplies

Volunteers are needed to come in for about an hour on Wednesday, November 14 at 9:00 am to help distribute flour and baking supplies to all the homerooms.
