Homemade Food Donations:
Harvest Bread: This should be a homemade bread made from a harvest fruit or vegetable, if possible. Suggestions: pumpkin, cranberry, apple, squash, or similar
Homemade cranberry sauce: Your favorite family recipe or one you would like to try! Last year we had great variety of sauces including mangos and hot peppers!
Pies or Apple Crisp: Your favorite family recipe of pumpkin, chocolate cream or apple pie/apple crisp
Breads, Cranberry Sauces and Desserts can be dropped off at the Barnard Town Hall during Thursday prep (2-4:30) or Friday morning (8-11am). Please no peanuts or raw eggs!
A special note to pre-K parents - it is helpful if some pre-k parents sit and eat with the kids. If you would like to do this, please let your student's teacher know and don't sign up to serve.
Our goal is to keep the tradition of using fresh, local turkeys alive, but the cost is challenging. If you are able to assist in the cost of the turkeys or have a connection to a possible turkey donation, please contact Arlana. All turkeys will be cooked by parent Nathan Rich.
More Info on the event:
Barnard Academy’s Thanksgiving Harvest Luncheon is scheduled for November 22th at the Barnard Town Hall. This yearly tradition allows the BEES and the Barnard Academy students and staff to celebrate and thank the greater school community and the Town of Barnard for all it does to help our school succeed. Town officials, school volunteers and those involved in making our town a better place, receive a personal invitation to join the students in a traditional turkey feast at 12 noon.
Barnard Academy parents play an important role in this event. Families are asked to donate a harvest bread or a homemade cranberry sauce to the meal and parents are asked to help prep, cook, set up or serve at the luncheon. After the students return to the school, the family volunteers sit down and enjoy the meal together. This is a great way to get to know other parents and participate in a yearly school ritual.
