During the period of October 20th through November 9th, Bridgewater-Raritan students/parents/guardians and their respective teachers/support staff came together for Bridgewater-Raritan Education Association (BREA) sponsored community breakfasts held at all seven primary and both intermediate district schools. When it was all said and done, hundreds of students/parents/guardians, and teachers/support staff enjoyed the opportunity to come together as a community to interact and get to know one another better while enjoying a delicious breakfast provided by Danny’s Bagelicious Catering.
There were many smiles on the faces of students, parents, and staff as they conversed and partook of bagels, scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, orange juice, and coffee. Students particularly enjoyed the BREA plastic cups that changed color when filled with a cold beverage. While students got to keep their cups, parents had the opportunity to take home decorations such as pumpkins, gourds, potted chrysanthemums and balloons.
The breakfasts was sponsored entirely by BREA teachers and support staff through their monthly association dues paid to the New Jersey Education Association. A percentage of the money teachers and support staff pay each year to the NJEA comes back to each district in NJEA PRIDE grants to sponsor such events as the community breakfasts as well as many other events that benefit our students and school community as a whole. The BREA looks forward to continuing to sponsor many more community events later this school year and for years to come.
