Northvail School Participates in King Arthur’s Life Skills Program


Fourth and fifth grade students at Northvail Elementary were recently selected to participate in the Life Skills Bread Baking Assembly Program presented by King Arthur Flour.

During the assembly, a video camera projected a close-up of what was happening on the presentation table to ensure that everyone could see the step-by-step process.  After the bread baking demonstration, each child was given ingredients including King Arthur Flour to bake two loaves of bread at their home. One was for their family to enjoy and the other to return to school for a donation to Eva’s Kitchen located in Paterson.

Eva’s Kitchen serves a hot lunch for up to 400 homeless and working poor every day of the year.  It was estimated that 108 loaves were donated!

The Life Skills Program aims to help children to learn, bake and share by providing students with a real world application of skills they’re learning in school- math, science, reading, problem solving and of course giving back to the community.

King Arthur Flour was founded in 1790, and is America’s oldest flour company.  More than 190,000 students all over the country have participated in the Life Skills Program since its inception in 1992.  The students at Northvail would like to give a special thanks to the PTA and Mr. Martens, Principal.
