Vienna Elementary School Students to Participate in King Arthur Life Skills Baking Program
The art of baking bread, supported by core academic skills, will be taught to students in grades 4-6 at Vienna Elementary School as part of King Arthur Flour’s Life Skills Baking Program on Thursday, October 20, at 9:10 a.m. Vienna Elementary School is a Fairfax County public school.
Students will learn the skills they need to make bread from scratch, using math, science, reading, planning, and problem solving. They will receive materials provided by King Arthur Flour to bake two loaves of bread at home over the weekend. One loaf may be shared with their family, and the second loaf will be donated to a local food pantry. Recipients of the donated bread will be the Arlington Food Assistance Center, Mott Community Center, Food for Others, Reston Interfaith, and Share of McLean at McLean Baptist Church.
The King Arthur Flourâ€™s Life Skills Baking Program will also be presented at Flint Hill Elementary, Louise Archer Elementary, and Marshall Road Elementary Schools during the week of October 17.
The Life Skills Baking Program offers students the opportunity to use skills, enjoy family time, and provide community service. It is provided at no cost by King Arthur Flour; this is the first time the program has been presented in Fairfax County.
