Valentine cookies for Veteran’s nursing homes

Cookie drive                         Valentine Cookies

   Every year the Baker American Legion Auxiliary sponsors a cookie drive for Valentine’s Day to show appreciation to the veterans in the area.

Two of Mrs. Stickney’s FCS classes decided to participate in this community outreach program by baking cookies using the reduced sugar recipes from their sugar challenge project.

   Mrs. Benner’s second grade WIN time group designed Valentine cards for the veterans and also made cookies.

   The students enjoyed completing these activities to show their gratitude to local heroes.
