Terman Middle School in Palo Alto will hold its annual Breaking of the Bread ceremony on December 17 and they need parent volunteers to help collect, cut, and serve the bread. The ceremony is a great way for the students to learn more about each other’s cultures and traditions.
According to Terman’s November Tiger Talk newsletter, all “diverse cultures have at least one thing in common-they all eat some form of bread.” The bread that student’s bring can be any type that the student chooses from a traditional family recipe or one that represents their cultural background. Bread should be cut into bite size portions or slices.
Parent volunteers are needed for three different time shifts: from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. to collect bread from s as they arrive at school; from 10:45 to 11:45 a.m. to arrange the bread on the trays and to slice any bread that is brought to school unsliced; and then from 11:45 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. to finish helping getting the bread ready on the trays to be on hand for the event. Contact the school at (650) 856-9810 to register as a volunteer for the Breaking the Bread event.
