To Parents and First Day School Children,

Mark your calendars for the Pancake Breakfast on September 10, beginning at 9:45.
This is the traditional start to the FDS year, so we hope everyone can make it and enjoy
the breakfast prepared by Bob Newbery and his young helpers. If your child would like
to be involved with cooking or serving, let me or Bob know in the next few weeks.
Watch announcements for more details about this syrupy celebration!

Many ways to contribute:

There is an ongoing need for Woodbrooke Day presenters to prepare a lesson for the third First Day of the month, when the regular FDS schedule is suspended. Presenters may explore Quaker history or concerns, teach a skill, bake cookies, or share a personal interest. Children learn something new and our community is strengthened by nurturing connections between children and adults. Time commitment is typically for one lesson a year. You can also volunteer to assist a Woodbrooke presenter by contacting the Program Coordinator.
