Foundation grant gets things cooking at Wilkes | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Thank you, BSF!

“I’m super lucky,” I thought as I whipped the eggs together with my classmates. Thank you so much, Bainbridge Schools Foundation, for providing us with a new WPK (Wilkes Portable Kitchen). You are such a kind and generous community to give us this grant so that we could cook at school with our friends.

Our class made pancakes and it was such a fun process. We had a good time taking turns sifting the dry ingredients such as flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt on a wax piece of paper. Then, we mixed together the wet ingredients, such as buttermilk, oil and an egg. After that, we stirred the wet ingredients with the dry and finally, we had the perfect pancake batter!

Next, we poured the batter onto a griddle using a cool, hand-pump dispenser. It was super exciting watching the pancakes cook and when the bubbles popped, we got to flip them ourselves.

After recess, we served our preschool buddies the golden brown pancakes topped with fresh fruit that we had cut up ourselves using kid knives. Everyone loved our homemade pancakes!

I loved how we applied math skills into our cooking process, like wholes, halves, quarters and eighths. Your grant let us learn fun skills about math like division and multiplication. Our class had to figure out if we had enough baking powder for 7 batches of pancake batter. The can said there were 383 servings and ⅛ of a teaspoon serving size. Our class did division like 383 divided into 8 groups equals 47 remainder 7. We then knew that we had enough teaspoons of baking powder for 7 batches of pancake batter.

I’m thinking of all the different treats that we could make in our kitchen all because of you. I’m so excited to see what other things that we’re going to make in our WPK.

Thank you again, BSF, for this fun and amazing opportunity. I look forward to teaching the recipe and skills to my family.
