King Arthur Flour instructor Amy Driscoll visited Fisher Elementary School to give a bread baking presentation to students in grades three to five as part of the company’s ‘Bake for Good’ community program. Driscoll, along with Fisher fifth grade helpers Sara Tilley and Makayla Towne, showed fellow students how to measure and combine ingredients to form bread dough to make a traditional loaf of bread, a braided bread, cinnamon rolls, pretzels and pizza dough. Throughout the presentation, students answered math and science questions about yeast, fractions and gluten. Each received a bag of supplies needed to make two loaves of bread; one to keep and one to return to school to give to either the Arlington Area Food Shelf, Green Mountain Christian Center Food Shelf, Manchester Community Food Cupboard or His Pantry at Sacred Heart St. Francis de Sales Church. District school nurse Katie Gulley invited King Arthur to Fisher. “The King Arthur program is a great opportunity for students to understand what it means to give back to the community. After the demonstration, they were excited to get their bread kits, so they could bake bread and bring it back to school to share with others. I also had many parents tell me how much they enjoyed the time spent baking with their children, so it was just a win on many levels.”
